Army ROTC Learning Community
Cadets in the Army ROTC program find that the Army ROTC Learning Community is an ideal opportunity to make friends quickly and form strong bonds with other cadets while still being part of the diverse community. Living with other ROTC cadets allows students to share common experiences in and out of the classroom.
Residential Requirement | Students who are members of ARMY ROTC are not required to live within the community but it is an added benefit to the program. To be considered a part of the Learning Community you must live in one of the rooms in McDonald Hall. The 20 first- and second-year students who choose to live within the community must select a roommate who is also a member of the Army ROTC Learning Community.
About the Community | Army ROTC Learning Community students live in a diverse population in McDonald Hall along with other highly ambitious and motivated students who are members of other Learning Communities. Students work, live and hangout together to ease the transition to college life, while supporting each other throughout the ROTC program.
McDonald Hall | Centrally located and steps away from the Bowen-Thompson Student Union and the Jerome Library, McDonald Hall is a traditional residence hall and houses classrooms and faculty/staff offices. Amenities include an art studio, music room, study area, computer lab, laundry on each floor and a full community kitchen.
Each community has a set of residence hall rooms specifically designated for them. To sign up for one of these rooms, you must apply, and be accepted into the community, prior to April 25, 2018. To ensure your chance to live in the community, please complete the following steps:
||Complete your housing application|
|Step 2||Apply here and login with your BGSU username and password|
|Step 3||Click on Add a New Community Enrollment Request and choose your desired community and academic year/term|
|Please Note||Students can apply only for two communities on their own. If you want to apply to more than two communities, please contact the additional communities you are interested in so they can apply for you. If you have applied for two and change your mind, go into the system and withdraw yourself from the one(s) you are no longer interested in. This will open up a space for you again.
After you have submitted your request to join a community, you will receive an email from the community director approving your request. When it’s time for you to select your room in the next phase, you will be able to view and select rooms within the designated community space in the community’s residence hall. For example, if you choose to join the Chapman Learning Community, you will select a room in Kohl Hall.
