New Air Force ROTC Program at WJU
ROCKLIN, Calif., - William Jessup University begins a new Air Force ROTC program with the start of the 2014-15 academic year. The ROTC experience allows students to earn an officer's commission and prepares them for many rewarding Air Force careers upon college graduation.
Lieutenant Colonel. Loo Ng (retired) is the current commander of the ROTC program. Lt. Col Ng is heading up the inaugural program at Jessup where he also teaches management and organizational behavior in the Business department.
""There is strong interest for college ROTC programs in this region," said Ng. "There are over a dozen high schools with Jr. ROTC programs within a 50 mile radius; however, there are no known Christian universities with college ROTC for a several hundred mile radius."
The Air Force ROTC college program is offered at more than 1,100 colleges and universities across the United States. WJU's AFRTOC cadets will attend and complete required courses at the growing university and take military classes with the Air Force Detachment 88 host unit located at CSU, Sacramento.
The new program at Jessup will combine military leadership with a Christ-centered education that equips graduates to serve God and their country. Students are challenged mentally and physically as they learn the values of teamwork, personal integrity and selfless service.
Students accepted to the program can receive two, three and four-year scholarships in most college majors. Scholarships help cover the cost of tuition, books and lab fees. Students may also receive a tax-free monthly stipend to ease the burden of student loans.
