Three students taking Army ROTC contracting oath
Three Salve Regina sophomores – Ellen Gensicki, Daniel LaBrie and Erin Luibrand – will take the Army ROTC contracting oath during a ceremony scheduled for 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24 in Ochre Court.
The contracting oath is the initial step in the transformation from student to cadet and from cadet to second lieutenant, signifying the commitment required of each cadet. Members of the Salve Regina community are invited to join President Jane Gerety, RSM, and the students’ families and friends for this ceremony.
Army ROTC coursework emphasizes the development of individual leadership ability and prepares students for future leadership roles in the Army. Professional military education skills such as written communications, human behavior, history, mathematical reasoning and other skills are fulfilled through a combination of Core Curriculum and military science courses.
Students who are interested in Salve Regina’s Army ROTC program may stop by information tables in the Miley cafeteria and O’Hare Academic Center between noon and 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23. Cadets will be present to answer questions and provide information about military science and leadership course enrollment for the spring 2014 semester.
