Jared Erickson of Minneapolis is a cadet in the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps ( ROTC) at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology. Erickson is a freshman, chemical engineering major at Tech.
The School of Mines maintains a unit if the senior division of the Army ROTC. Cadets take courses in military science that compliment any course of study while providing leadership training unobtainable elsewhere on the campus. The Military Science Department is designed to provide an understanding of the concepts and fundamentals of military art and science, to develop leadership and managerial potential, to develop a strong sense of personal integrity, and to foster individual responsibility. Many men and women complete the four- year course of study and become commissioned officers, while many others choose to go into the National Guard or Reserves.
