What to Expect at Military Colleges

What to Expect at Military Colleges


Speaker One: They’re learning how to
be leaders, in what I like to call a leadership
laboratory. And they learn from those experiences day in and day out. Speaker Two: The leadership experience that
you get here, it’s not just theory. You put it into practice, and you can’t really find
that many other places. Speaker Three: We actually step into the roles
of squad leaders, of platoon sergeants, of first sergeants and so forth, and you get
graded on that. Speaker Four: If we — this happens forward,
and then this happens forward. Speaker Five: I commanded a cadet company
for an entire year, and I actually had a full staff. It was mirrored exactly off of an infantry
company in the military. Speaker Six: You get out of college, you still
have more experience leading people than any other college kid. Speaker Seven: I’m not going to be afraid
of being able to take on a leadership position. That’s the biggest difference. It’s going
to be second nature to take on those leadership roles. Speaker Eight: You need to be able to instill
motivation, and learn how to inspire other people. And that’s what I’ve learned here. Speaker Nine: One of the aspects of learning
to lead is learning to follow. And we do that by ensuring that they are well advised, that
they are mentored, that they are counseled. Speaker Ten: I really like the academics here.
For one it’s the smaller classes, as opposed to a traditional school. So there’s more opportunity
for that one on one with the teacher. Speaker Eleven: What are we interested in?
Yes sir, (inaudible) Speaker Twelve: They know you by name, and
when you go in for help, they can help you personally, because they know what your study
habits are, and how you learn. Speaker Thirteen: The difference here is we’re
just waiting for the kids to come in, and see us, because it makes our day. Speaker Fourteen: And they will sit down and
personally help you if you want their advice. That right there is a big advantage. How many
times have you sat at home and couldn’t figure out a math problem, and your teacher wasn’t
around? Right now, we have teachers in the building, three or four of them every night
to help you out with that. Speaker Fifteen: The Army is investing in
the leaders of tomorrow. One way they’re doing it is the college scholarships. Speaker Sixteen: I’m on four year Army ROTC
scholarship, and it pays for tuition, your books, and your student fees. Speaker Seventeen: I love talking about scholarships.
At this point, cadet command has more scholarship dollars available than we have qualified applicants. Speaker Eighteen: It’s a good opportunity
for cadets to come in and have their school paid for, so that they don’t have anything
to worry about, they can focus on their studies, and once they get commissioned in the Army,
they can have all the skills necessary to be a good officer. Speaker Nineteen: I have no student loans.
So overall, I’m almost getting school for free. Speaker Twenty: When I was in the Corps of
Cadets, that was your life. All the challenges that were placed on you, you had a bond with
those that had a shared interest and went through the same challenges of being here.
It wasn’t something that was given to you, it was something that you had to earn. And
I think the same is very true today. Those are endearing friendships. Speaker Twenty-One: Something different, something
unique. You know, you go through trails together and you overcome those trials together, and
I think that builds stronger friendships for later on down the road. Speaker Twenty-Two: We’re like a big family,
we love each other, we hate each other. But we all have to work with each other, and come
game time, we’re able to make the impossible happen. Speaker Twenty-Three: I’ve made some of the
best friends. You go through so much with them, you just make a bond. They’re your brothers
and sisters here. Speaker Twenty-Four: It means a lot to be
a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. It means that I get the opportunity to lead
the sons and daughters of this nation. It gives me the opportunity to contribute to
my part in serving this country. And it doesn’t only mean a lot to me, it means a lot to my
family. Speaker Twenty-Five: I have much more ambition
than I ever had before, to see so much more that I could be doing with my life. And I
have so much more drive to do it. Speaker Twenty-Six: We all have something
greater to consider. So that right there makes it all worth it. You have to experience it
to understand how great it is. Speaker Twenty-Seven: Personal motivation.
Academic excellence. Physical courage, and intellectual courage. This is not just military
service, this is service to (inaudible). That comes from that spirit. That is why they are
here.
