Being a sophomore Mechanical Engineering Technology Student and ROTC Cadet at RIT has been a very positive experience. ROTC gives me the discipline and skills needed to set high goals and achieve them in my academics and everyday life. Not only does ROTC give me discipline that helps me succeed in my studies it also keeps me in shape, and teaches me teamwork. As a sophomore I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Marksmanship Club, Pershing Rifles, Ranger Challenge Team, and Ranger Platoon which have all helped shape me into a better Cadet and student. I look forward to the next few years at RIT, and hope the next couple years are as rewarding as the past year at RIT.
