Marine Option Cruise

Mountain Warfare Training

Marine Option Midshipmen finishing their second year of NROTC will attend Mountain Warfare School during one of two phases.


Midshipmen who aspire to be Marine Officers are required to attend OCS at Quantico, VA, for six weeks in the summer between their Junior and Senior year. OCS is a right of passage for all future Marine officers and requires that each Candidate has the physical and mental strength to handle the demanding career that lies ahead of them.

OCS is one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences Marine Option midshipmen will have.
