The University of Florida’s Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps carries on the fine tradition of training the future Officers of the United States Naval Service. More than one hundred midshipmen, and officer candidates from both the Navy and Marine Corps are seeking their commission through any one of the many excellent programs NROTC has to offer.

Whether on scholarship or a “college programmer,” the battalion welcomes midshipmen from all walks of life as they prepare themselves mentally and physically for military service. Prior enlisted military personnel may also seek their commission at UF NROTC through the Enlisted Commissioning Program (ECP) and Marine Enlisted Commissioning and Education Program (MECEP). Regardless of background, all will find the opportunity to excel in one of a wide variety of future career paths that include:

» Surface Warfare Officer (SWO)

» Naval or Marine Aviation

» Surface Warfare Officer (Nuclear)

» Submarine Officer

» SEAL/Special Warfare

» Marine Corps Officer

The University of Florida is located in the heart of Gainesville, and is attended by more than 50,000 students! With over 150 undergraduate majors and 16 individual colleges located on campus, UF is an excellent school for those who are seeking a top-notch education while simultaneously pursuing a military career at what is without a doubt the best damn unit in the country.

Navy tier system explained

As part of the military’s future, it is important to maintain a high level of readiness, both mental and physical. Doing well in a technical major will benefit you for service selection far more than doing well in a nontechnical one. The Navy’s tier system enforces this, rewarding those who choose to follow a major in engineering or science.

Making good decisions is also part of the Navy’s mission for its sailors, and there’s never a bad time to make a good decision! Start practicing sound decision making, and set the example, while ensuring that your friends do the same. Join the Navy’s Facebook Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD) today, and spread the word that a sound decision is the right one!

The opportunity to lead your fellow shipmates and marines is a tremendous one, and it is not something one should be unprepared for.
