Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

Ranger Company expands on the basic light infantry operations taught in Army ROTC to include tactics, techniques, and procedures used by elite light infantry units in the U.S. Army. This training develops leadership skills by requiring cadets to perform effectively as small-unit leaders in realistic tactical environments under demanding mental and physical conditions. Ranger Company cadets receive instruction in dismounted patrolling, battle drills, weapons familiarization, and day and night missions.

At the end of each academic year, Ranger training culminates in Cat Eye Weekend. Cadets who have successfully trained with Ranger Company may apply to be tested on the skills learned throughout the year. Successful completion of this rigorous event awards those cadets with coveted Cat Eyes, signifying membership in the Ranger Company.

Additionally, Norwich cadets in their second year and above are afforded the opportunity to try out for the Ranger Challenge Team training during the Fall semester. Ranger Challenge is a competition which pits a 12-person Norwich Army ROTC team against AROTC teams from other senior military colleges in the region. The competition is held annually at Ft. Knox, Kentucky, and consists of events testing cadets’ land navigation skills, physical aptitude, technical knowledge, marksmanship, and endurance.
