  1. Col. John Armour/AFROTC - Overview of Air Force ROTC Program

    Dr. Gaudino introduced Col. John Armour and Maj. Matthew Wilson from CWU's Air Force ROTC program. Col. Armour gave an overview of the program. The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is an education program designed to give students the opportunity to become United States Air Force officers while completing a college degree. The Air Force ROTC program prepares students to assume important positions of increasing responsibility in the modern Air Force. Basically, they create officers/leaders. Their main training event for students is a 4-week program between the freshmen and sophomore years. After that students start learning their leadership skills. They have a decent amount of scholarships for the program. Approximately 25% percent of their students attend on scholarships. There are about 40-50 specializations in the program. Non flying officers give a 4-year commitment. CWU also offers two-year and three-year programs for community college transfers, veterans, and students who didn't enroll in the four-year program. When students complete Air Force ROTC and graduate with a bachelor's degree, they will be commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force.
