ROTC Revitalization Act

ย  ย  The switch to voluntary ROTC drastically affected enrollment in 1964 under the ROTC Revitalization Act. In 1963, enrollment fell to 3,100 Cadets. In 1964, enrollment plunged to 500 Cadets. As a result of public resentment over the Vietnam Conflict, enrollment dropped to only 69 Cadets in 1974. The 1980s saw a rebirth of national pride and patriotism and enrollment rose to 129 by 1988.
