ASTATE Red Wolf Battalion

The Arkansas State University ROTC Program is dedicated to developing quality leaders for America's Army. Since the Army holds education as such an important aspect of leadership, it has invested in developing leaders by funding the training needed to facilitate quality leaders. Scholarships and other Financial Aid are available to students seeking higher education.

ROTC Develops Leaders

ASTATE ROTC has a proud 78-year history of producing top quality leaders who have gone on to hold high paying jobs, public office, and high ranking military positions. Cadets find their full potential and become overall better citizens by commissioning into the Active Duty Army, Army National Guard, or Army Reserve.


Spring Break

  • In addition to the many snow days, students will have an additional week of opportunity from March 22-30 to study and stay physically fit as they prepare for the final 7 weeks of the semester. Stay healthy and stay safe everyone!

Red Wolf Battalion Military Ball

  • Cadets, Cadre, Staff and Special Guests will be enjoying a VIP Guest Speaker at this year's Military Ball. The Cadets are working out the details for the event which will take place on April 25th, so keep your calendar clear.


Commissioning Ceremony

  • The event many of us have been waiting for is drawing near. The 2014 Spring Commissioning Ceremony will take place at 3pm on May 16th, 2014 at the Convocation Center Auditorium. We will be commissioning 10 cadets who will go on to do great and wonderful things as officers in the Active Duty Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve.



ASU Military Science offers four clubs which enhance the ROTC experience: Pershing Rifles, Color Guard, Scabbard and Blade, and  Sisler's Raiders are all available to help develop skills and provide additional opportunities to get involved.
