Zero Week

Welcome all incoming freshman to the Boiler Battalion! The week prior to the start of school will be the initial week for Army ROTC.

  1. Work with your advisor to add MSL 101 and Army PES 114 to your schedule.
  2. Attend Zero Week in August.
  3. Complete the Army ROTC Intro Survey found below.

  4. Bring one paper copy of your birth certificate and social security card when you report for Zero Week.
