In Announcements, by , on November 30th, 2017

Niagara University’s Army ROTC program placed third in the nation on the National Accessions Outcome Metrics List, based on results released Nov. 6 by the United States Army Cadet Command.

The Outcome Metrics List ranks each of the country’s nearly 5,260 Army senior cadets on academic performance, leadership and involvement, and physical fitness.

Based on a formula, each ROTC cadet is scored on grade point average, performance in a national leadership course and in specific leadership dimensions, observations made by ROTC instructor cadre and physical fitness test scores. Every cadet in the nation is then ranked to determine in which military category and branch they will be placed.

NU’s Purple Eagle Battalion finished third out of 275 programs nationally in terms of average Outcome Metrics List score. Niagara’s score of 61.1 placed it second in the 2nd Brigade, ahead of every institution of higher education in New York state.

Congratulations to Lt. Col. Gary Love and the Purple Eagle Battalion on this wonderful accomplishment!
