Welcome to the UAlbany Army ROTC website. Charlie Company is located at the University at Albany and is a part of Mohawk Battalion at Siena College.

Our Cadets are mostly students attending the University at Albany but some are students from nearby Colleges and Universities such as Saint Rose or Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. If you walk around cmapus on a Thursday (uniform day), you're likely to see a few Cadets in the Army Combat Uniform (ACU). On other days, you couldn't tell us apart from any other college student. Cadets attend classes, go to the library, hang out at the mall, and engage in student clubs and activities. Some Cadets are prior service and have gone through basic training and other Army schools. Some have even deployed in support of combat operations. Most Cadets however, join the Company as a freshmen or sophomore with no prior military experience. If you missed the first and/or second year of ROTC, it's still possible to start the program, so be sure to inquire if you are interested.

Cadet of the Month - March

Cadet Kevin DaCosta is a sophomore at the University at Albany. He was born and raised in New Jersey; however 7 years ago he moved to New York, which he now calls home. He is the first in his family to enter college and is currently pursuing a degree in both psychology and criminal justice. He hopes to start a career with the Central Intelligence Agency and simultaneously serve his country as an officer in the U.S. Army Reserve or National Guard. His hobbies include football and boxing.

Cadet DaCosta recently enrolled in ROTC this semester as a Leaders’ Training Course (LTC) candidate. He pursued ROTC that he might strengthen and further develop his leadership qualities. He has shown great diligence by learning an impressive amount of material in a very short period of time. He has learned from his peers and has devoted himself to self study. He has led the company in physical training and drill and ceremony with outstanding results. Cadet DaCosta’s dedication and commitment reflects great credit upon himself, Charlie Company, the University at Albany and the Mohawk Battalion.
