Stay in Touch

Staying in touch with the Fighting Illini Battalion

Alumni continue to ask for ways to support the current Cadet Battalion. The best way is through your willingness to share your experience with them. Please consider supporting one of these upcoming events:

Alumni Mentor

All of our MS-IV Cadets have received their component and branch choices this fall and there is the opportunity to connect with and mentor a current Fighting Illini Cadet as they prepare for their transition into the Army.  Alumni are an incredible resource as your experience can assist them in understanding what to expect.

Guest Speaker for any Military Science Class

Each year, alumni speak to specific military science classes about their experience.  If you would like to speak to current cadets, please let us know the topic and the time you are available so that we can coordinate for you to be a guest speaker in one or more of our classes.

Veterans Day Football Game

Each year the Army ROTC Battalion conducts a โ€œLoyalty Oathโ€ Ceremony during the Salute to Veterans Football Game at U of I. This is a great retention event for the Cadets.  You are invited to support the new contracted cadets!
