New Cadet Orientation Program (2018)
The Johns Hopkins Blue Jay Army ROTC Battalion is hosting our annual New Cadet Orientation Program (NCOP) from August 21 to the 24 2018. As a new Cadet to our Battalion, we will offer you early move in on the 21st, help you finalize relevant paperwork and issue you equipment on the 23rd, give you a taste of military training on the 24th, and have some fun and camaraderie with a scavenger hunt around Baltimore and BBQ on the 24th.
Our program is an introduction to the Army ROTC program as a whole, and it will give new Cadets a head start on the semester. You have the opportunity to develop relationships with your classmates and orient yourself to the campus before your peers even move in. New Cadets will learn basic marching, customs and courtesies, and teamwork and begin developing relevant military skills in an environment of fun and growth. Cadets will spend the three days developing their understanding of Army ROTC and our program. They will also get to know their class and make new friends that will last a lifetime.
If you have been contacted by a current Cadet within our program, your sponsor, continue to use them as your point of contact. Direct questions about your paperwork, our ROTC program, or anything else to them. If you have not been contacted by us but are interested in joining Army ROTC while attending Johns Hopkins University, UMBC, Stevenson University, University of Baltimore, or MICA, contact CPT Kirkland at . Once you have your paperwork filled out, let your point of contact know. Then, bring all of your paperwork to NCOP on August 21 with copies of your social security card and birth certificate.
We look forward to meeting all of our new Cadets and setting you on firm footing before the semester even begins! I'll Lead!
