Military Science: Army ROTC

The Major General Patrick H. Brady Battalion Army ROTC trains future leaders in the United States Army. Seattle University ROTC training opportunities include nursing, air assault and leadership. 

Future Leaders in the United States Army

The MG Patrick H. Brady Battalion community is looking for future leaders like you for the United States Army.  

Currently, our target recruiting population is geared towards science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and nursing majors. However, all majors are accepted. 

Reputation for Excellence 

The Army ROTC program at Seattle University was activated in 1951. The basic program was mandatory for all qualified male students until 1965, when it became optional.  Since its inception, the Battalion has established a reputation for excellence in overall performance. 

We believe that our Jesuit values and approach will help you become more socially responsible, ethically grounded and a globally aware military leader.

“I was ultimately attracted to Seattle University and its Army ROTC for the small size. I received a great education from the faculty and Cadre at the Brady Battalion. My experience at Seattle University and the Brady Battalion shaped me into a better leader. Strike Forward!”
