Commissioning

This ceremony, in which the new Officers take their commissioning oaths, marks the end of a four-year journey of education, training, and self-discovery and the beginning of a journey of military service.

Branch specific pinning ceremonies will be in the following locations:

  • Army ROTC – Marshall Hall  
  • Naval ROTC – Cameron Hall
  • Air Force ROTC – Memorial Gardens (Inclement weather location: Jackson Memorial Hall)
