Welcome to the Raider Battalion


The Raider Battalion is the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program at Shippensburg University. Located in the heart of the Shippensburg University campus, the Raider Battalion includes students from Shippensburg University, Wilson College, and Penn State Mont Alto.

Army ROTC is a leadership development program that prepares students to become officers in the United States Army. Students who complete the ROTC program are commissioned as Second Lieutenants upon graduation and go on to serve in one of fifteen career fields. Graduates of the program have options to serve on Active Duty--as a full time job--or as part-time officers in the Army Reserves or National Guard (one weekend a month plus two weeks of training each summer) .
