Forty-three members of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) will participate in a commissioning ceremony this Friday, May 25 at 1 p.m. in the courtyard between Camino and Founders halls at the University of San Diego.
In a ceremony steeped in military tradition, NROTC students are officially inducted into the Naval services as Second Lieutenants (Marines) and Ensigns (Navy).
Vice Admiral Richard W. Hunt, Commander of the Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet, will address the new officers.
The San Diego Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Unit was established at the University of San Diego (USD) and San Diego State University (SDSU) in 1982. Since then, cross-town enrollment agreements with Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU), Cal State University San Marcos (CSUSM), and the University of California San Diego (UCSD) were also established. The mission of NROTC San Diego is to develop Battalion members morally, mentally and physically while imbuing them with the highest ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty.
