Ohio University Bobcat Battalion
Army ROTC at Ohio University has enjoyed a history of excellence since the program began in 1936. Our Cadets are consistently ranked in the top percentiles among their peers nationwide for summer training and overall campus performance. Over 30% of the current senior class of 2011 is designated as Distinguished Military Graduates for graduating in the Top 20% of the Nation.
During the summer 2010 Leader Development and Assessment Course our Cadets had the 4th highest average in the Nation for award of the RECONDO badge and had the highest overall performance of any school in MI, OH, KY, and for ten consecutive years, since 2001, OHIO has been the only school in the Nation to exceed the National averages in every evaluated event at LDAC. LDAC is a key leadership test every Cadet must pass in order to earn a 2nd Lieutenant's commission
