Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps
The Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps is a long-standing program through which the Navy and Marine Corps can commission officers in addition to the Naval Academy’s graduates. Midshipmen in the program complete basic physical, mental, and professional training to prepare them for their future careers.
The Houston Consortium is commanded by CAPT Timothy E. Symons and is comprised of two Units: Prairie View A&M University Unit, and the Rice University Unit, which consists of University of Houston, Houston Baptist University, and Texas Southern University.
The Prairie View Unit has about 60 future officers, although we are apart of the smallest NROTC programs it is still well-ran and elite. PVAMU is of the most historical units due to it being the first NROTC at an Historically Black Colleges and Universities, we have continued to keep up the standard high.
