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 and Wednesday morning from 0545 to 0700 at Rutgers. Midshipmen are obligated to attend all weekly PT sessions. PRT's are conducted at the beginning and end of every semester. Workouts are led by midshipmen and supervised active duty Unit Staff members.
