On April 16, 2016 numerous ROTC Alumni, campus personalities and community leaders gathered with
the current cadets for the unveiling of the 100 - Year Monument. The ceremony was one part to a long
Celebration of Army ROTC's history here at NDSU. It aslo included a joint run with Junior ROTC Cadets and Senior ROTC cadets, a luncheon and public presentations.
NDSU's library partook of the celebration by setting up a public display in the library's entry way for a month
full of readings, artifacts and photos from across Army ROTC's history. On April 19, 2016, LTC Ted Preister, PMS,
gave a speech to the open public about the intertwined history of ROTC and NDSU's campus. Again many
campus personality and public personnel attended this event.
This year marks the 100th year of ROTC being a sanctioned organization - despite NDSU producing officers
since 1982. Across the country many schools are hosting similar events celebrating 100 years of excellence.
There are future plans to add tablets around the monument with the names of all Alumnus from our program
manner will be best for you.
