Air Force ROTC


BGSU's Air Force ROTC aims to develop future leaders for the United States Air Force by providing leadership opportunities, physical training and mentorship.  Detachment 620 has been a part of BGSU for over 60 years producing officers who have gone on to be general officers, pilots, navigators, engineers, nurses, and much more. For more information, visit the BGSU Air Force ROTC page.



Army ROTC is an elective that you take along with your required college classes that teaches you the skills needed for a successful career.  You’ll combine classroom time with hands-on-experiences and learn leadership and management skills.  It prepares you with the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Because it's an elective, you can try it out for the freshman and sophomore years without incurring any obligation to serve in the military. If you decide you are up to the challenge of leading in the world's best armed forces, you continue on to the advanced courses of Army ROTC while completing your degree. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but at graduation you are commissioned as an Second Lieutenant to serve on active duty or with the Army Reserves or National Guard. For more information, visit the BGSU Army ROTC page.
