Commissioning officers to serve in the United States Army since 1948, the University of Colorado’s Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program is one of the most highly respected, prestigious units in the nation.  Our officers have gone on to serve with distinction in every theatre of war since the unit’s inception, and the Golden Buffalo Battalion’s reputation has remained unparalleled as we move forward in the 21st Century.

A few recent highlights of the program are as follows:

  • Back-to-back Regional Ranger Challenge winners – an intense multi-day physical and military skills “adventure” race
  • Four consecutive first place finishes in the ROTC heavy division of the 26.2 mile Bataan Memorial Death March race in White Sands, NM
  • Three straight victories in the annual Tri-Mil competition, winning a military and physical skills competition against Navy, Air Force and Marine ROTC programs
  • Annual Distinguished Military Graduates, who have been placed within the top 10% of the 4,000+ Cadet population
  • Active Alumni network committed to supporting current Cadets both in their military and civilian professional career
  • Annual CU-Boulder Army ROTC Alumni reunion held before the military appreciation football game
  • Annual hut trip – Cadets snowshoe to a 10th Mountain hut located along the Continental Divide
