Monday, December 24, 2018 by LESLIE REGAN in School

Students at Lehigh University have the opportunity to take part in Military Science classes (Army ROTC) as an elective, in addition to their general undergraduate coursework. ROTC cadets learn leadership qualities and team building through intensive physical training, which often takes place at 5 a.m. before other classes begin. Army personnel teach cadets self-discipline, critical thinking skills, as well as many other qualities that will help shape the students into well-rounded and courageous individuals.
