New ROTC Program at CCC

by Press Release-CCC | Oct 16, 2007
New ROTC Program at CCC Camden County College is offering its students the opportunity to participate in the Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program for the first time.

In addition to enjoying a traditional college experience, students enrolled in Army ROTC attend classes and field training exercises that offer experience in management and leadership skills. ROTC training also provides students with instruction in communication skills, stress management, time management and personal development.

“Participants will learn firsthand what it takes to lead others and motivate groups,” said program instructor Major John DiDonato. “They will be prepared with the tools, training and experience that will help them succeed in any competitive environment.”

The program includes one day of classroom instruction per week and two days of physical training, all on the campus of Rowan University in Glassboro. In addition, students will voluntarily participate in one weekend field training exercise per semester to learn soldiering skills such as land navigation, repelling and squad tactics on various military installations.

The military science class is a three-credit elective course. There is no commitment owed to the armed services through the student’s first two years in the Army ROTC.

A cumulative grade-point average of 2.5 must be maintained to participate. Scholarship opportunities are available when participants transfer to a four-year bachelor’s degree institution.

For more information on CCC’s new Army ROTC program, contact DiDonato by telephone at (856) 256-4014, ext. 5445, or via e-mail at
