Now a captain in the U.S. Army at Fort Carson in Colorado, Erin Muri was one of the first women in ground combat roles as an armored division officer. Her experiences in the Army in the Middle East have made her acutely aware of the impact of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. She recently finished a master’s degree in human services counseling and hopes to embark on a clinical psychology Ph.D. in the near future.
The Bobcat Battalion
The Bobcat Battalion won the 2017 McArthur Award for being one of the top eight ROTC programs out of 275 programs in the United States.
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. A large percentage of every Senior Commissioning Class is designated as Distinguished Military Graduates, every year, for graduating in the top 20 percent of all Cadets in the Nation.
Although nationally, roughly 40 percent of Army ROTC Cadets go on to earn an Active Duty commission after graduation from college, it is not uncommon for 60-70 percent of Bobcat Battalion graduates to go on to become Active Duty Officers when they graduate from OHIO.
