CU Reserve Officer Training Course
By Jonathan mileman
BACKGROUND: An ROTC Course offered to College Students which will transfer into training, skills and learning how to become an Officer in the United States Armed Forces. Anyone that has taken this course will have their experience transferred to any branch of the military they wish to join, if they wish to at all. (No student will be required to join an actual SL military)
UNIQUE: This program is something entirely new to CU and it will almost act similarly to a fraternity. (Both male and female are eligible.) This program is designed to create essential roleplay for those college role players looking for more of an edge and experience. It would be a very essential stepping stone for anyone looking to join the police, a gang or simply just get into trouble with their buddies. There will be planned missions, training exercises and all sorts of possibilities that might lead a character into success or a boat load of trouble.
EXP: I've held leadership roles in numerous groups including PDs, FDs, your average community business, and gangs. I am able to keep a level head for OOC relations and IC recruiting, and, understand that success in something can, in fact, take time.
WORK WITH OTHERS:We plan to collaborate with anybody that's willing to weave these stories with us.
IDEAS: Social events that can fall along the lines of physical fitness competitions like the Spartan Race, or mud run, or color run. As well as potentially collaborating with Seaside for the school's athletic and physical fitness areas. Beyond that, aiding in, or even running food drives, holiday events to give kids toys, families food, things of that nature. As well as things like helping rebuild a house after severe water or fire damage, handing out blankets and other amenities after a disaster. It'd be a lot like a college ROTC really is, striving to help the community while also using it to educate the students in the course. In addition to assisting the community in a manner as stated above, maybe offering a week every now and then that parents or civil services can send kids to the ROTC program in an attempt to straighten them out, maybe even having events in collaboration with places like the Gein or Slim Goodies in the form of 'Get fit' challenges.
