Military training and ROTC have made valuable contributions to the Universities, Colorado, and the Nation. The program has advanced from a makeshift drill team to a highly organized group of young men and women. Both ROTC programs have grown rapidly and have received regional and national recognition. The year 2016 marks 100 years of Army ROTC and 70 years of Air Force ROTC at Colorado State University.
At Colorado State University, military instruction has been part of campus life since 1884. Set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, CSU provides one of the most beautiful locations to train in the United States.
