Department of Military Science & Leadership



Over 1,200 Second Lieutenants have been commissioned through the Army ROTC program at Cal Poly since its founding in 1953.  Each Fighting Mustang has a unique story to tell and as we continue to develop our Alumni outreach we'd very much appreciate feedback from those of you that have made the program what it is today.  Pictures, narratives, experiences, and words of wisdom are all welcome.  We will work on consolidating these into short entries on the website for past, present, and future Cadets (and their families) to absorb and appreciate.  Thank you for your selfless service and your continued dedication to the finest ROTC program in the country. 

If you wish to make a monetary donation directly to the Cal Poly Military Science Department you can do so through the University's donation website, Select College(s) and Program(s) under Designations and select the Military Science Department.

For any and all alumni related matters, contact the alumni representative.  They can be reached at (805)756-7689
