Having more than 347 student organizations, as well as a full range of activities and cultural programs for students, the University of Cincinnati is guaranteed to offer something that will spark your interest!
While there are many different types of student organizations on campus, there are several that are military-related. As a student veteran, you may have the opportunity to join these organizations and serve in more of a leadership/support role. If you wish to continue with a military-related student organization, the university offers:
The Semper Fidelis Society promotes better understanding of the responsibilities included in being a Marine Corps Officer. The purpose of this society is to enhance leadership skills similar to the ones used by the United States Marine Corps. These skills are applicable to any leadership position including both military and civilian lifestyles.
The purpose of the National Society of Pershing Rifles is to develop, to the highest degree possible, outstanding traits of leadership, military science, military bearing, and discipline within the framework of a military oriented, honorary fraternity.
The university currently has over 100 students taking ROTC and has been recognized by former university President Joseph A. Steger as "an important place in the University's curriculum offerings, options for professional training, and efforts to recruit outstanding students."
Today, AFROTC is the largest commissioning source for the Air Force, producing quality officer candidates who serve in a broad spectrum of career fields. The University of Cincinnati AFROTC detachment grew over the years to now include cross-town cadets from Xavier University, Thomas Moore College, Mount St. Joseph, and Northern Kentucky University.
