Oregon State has a rich history of ROTC programs. The first Cadet Corps was formed in 1872. During World War II, Oregon State became known as the West Point of the West for producing more officers than any other non-military academy in the nation.
Today, Oregon State has Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps ROTC programs and is recognized as Military Friendly school. The Office of Student Life offers resources to active military members and veterans in order to make their transition from military life to student life as easy as possible.
Beaver Nation thanks all of our veterans for their service.
