The Corps is a place for women to thrive, develop leadership skills, build confidence, and learn about themselves. Women have been a part of the Corps of Cadets for almost 40 years. There are over 300 women in the Corps today and the number of women in the Corps is growing fast.
Women may hold any position in the Corps and, in fact have been a Deputy Corps Commander, Major Unit and Unit Commanders, an Aggie Band Drum Majors, and Ross Volunteers. ROTC is only required for the first two years and there is no military obligation. About 35% of the women continue in ROTC and receive a military commission in one of the four branches of the military. Other women go on to successful careers in the public and private sector.
The Corps has a women's softball, basketball, and soccer team. Women can join other corps co-ed sports teams and participate in intramural sports.
