A rich history of excellence at ASU.

Founded in 1935, the Sun Devil Battalion is one of the oldest and most successful ROTC programs in the country.

Here you’ll meet world-class cadre members, Army civilians and university employees who invest in you every day to make sure you’re doing well academically, physically and mentally.

The biggest thing I took away from ASU and being a cadet here is developing others. The Army’s leadership model is "leads, develops, achieves" and I kind of took that develop one to heart. When I was an underclassman a lot of the seniors and cadre took time out of their schedule to mold me into the person I am today.
