The mission of the Penn State NROTC is to develop students into leaders of character who are morally, physically, and mentally prepared to serve in the United States Navy and Marine Corps.  Students who participate in the program must exhibit commitment to academic excellence, physical fitness, and military leadership.  We strive to instill our students with the values of honor, duty, and service necessary for becoming a professional Naval Officer. Throughout the year, the students take part in a wide variety of weekly training events as part of their military curriculum.  These include coursework on Navy and Marine Officer skills and knowledge, physical training within the Battalion, and opportunities for professional enrichment.  Additionally, students are fully able to take advantage of the thriving student life at The Pennsylvania State University.
