Has anyone experienced a situation within a college where rotc cadets were given discriminatory treatment either by faculty or peers?
I went to college in the *cough*70's*cough and we had ROTC and I never saw any animostiy toward ROTC cadets - this was a state U in the Northeast. Back then the cadets wore their uniforms a lot more than they do today. OK - I do admit some were made fun of (the really hoorah ones)- but we made fun of jocks too, and preppies and hippies and.......
Hi Thurl -
I think you are a parent - is that right?
I guess my stripes have shown through! LOL
Hey sealion thanks for the kind words regarding my son. I appreciate it.
Tufts is probably a small stretch for him but he has a friend at Tufts from High School last year and he wanted to give it a shot. I will say that Tufts sent an admissions person to interview him a couple of weeks ago and he was very impressed. They talked for about 2 hours at a local cofee shop.Son came away very upbeat about the school. We are planning a visit there and expect to contact the ROTC unit.
Congrats on your son accomplishments also. Sounds like he is doing great. best of luck to him going forward.
The post I made wasn't meant to be negative. I was only trying to stress that there are potentially some schools out there that may be biased one way or another and everyone should visit and ask alot of questions.
again best of luck to your son.
Oh and by the way Lineinthesand, I grew up across the river from USCGA. Those are my old stomping grounds. If you want to chat sometime let me know. LOL
