The Rutgers/Princeton NROTC started in March 2012 with Princeton joining in February 2014. The unit is proud to represent Midshipmen from Rutgers and Princeton. Many events occur throughout the year from the Military Ball and Mess Night to Military Excellence Competitions and volunteering events. Resources have been made available online for current Midshipmen by the Battalion Chain of Command.
Plan of the Week
The unit conducts PT every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning from 0545 to 0700 at Rutgers. Princeton Midshipmen can attend PT on Thursday mornings at Princeton from 0545 to 0700. Midshipmen are obligated to attend all weekly PT sessions. PRT's are conducted at the beginning and end of every semester. To build unit cohesion, workouts can be conducted at the unit from 0800 to 1500 anytime during the week with the appropriate staff member or other Midshipmen.
After PT on Monday and Wednesday, Midshipmen attend their respective Naval Science class at Rutgers from 0800 to various times between 0900 and 1000 depending on the class. Incoming Midshipmen are required to complete 10 study hours per week during study hour watch at various times throughout the week.
On Friday mornings from 0800 to 1000, Midshipmen conduct drill at Rutgers. Drill is split up by teams which include Color Guard, Trick Team, Platoon Drill, and Squad Drill. To accommodate for classes at this time, Princeton holds drill on Thursday mornings from 0730 to 0900 that Midshipmen can attend.
