Ranger Challenge

Ranger Challenge is an inter-collegiate competition designed to enhance leadership qualities, develop teamwork, and promote military excellence.  The events that the Ranger Challenge team competes in changes from year to year; however, during the 2013 competition at Fort Dix, NJ, they completed a log carry, executed orienteering tasks, completed a confidence course and an obstacle course, conducted buddy team carries, set-up a one-rope bridge, were tested on the disassembly and reassembly of several weapons, completed a hand-grenade assault course, and completed physical challenges consisting of one minute of push-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups as well as a 10 kilometer ruck march over the course of two days.

In order to prepare for this demanding event, the Ranger Challenge team trained for over two months Monday through Friday from 6:00 AM until 7:30 AM and every Saturday morning for several hours.  Their efforts and hard work paid huge dividends as the Ranger Challenge team finished in the top third of the Brigade, even with stiff competition from schools such as Syracuse, Penn State, and Boston University.
