Hello everybody! My name is Elizabeth and I'm a sophomore at Vanderbilt University's NROTC unit majoring in geology. I'm originally from Fargo, ND and once considered the Air Force and Naval Academies, but decided that the civilian college NROTC route was the right choice for me. My freshman year of college, I did not do NROTC, but during the summer between my freshman and sophomore years, after a year of regretting not going for an academy or ROTC, I decided to just do it. I contacted Vandy's NROTC unit in late July and on August 19th found myself standing at attention at NROTC indoc. From then on, I have not regretted my NROTC decision even once. Just last week I recieved some good news! I was changed from college programmer to scholarship midshipman after recieving the NROTC leadership scholarship! Yay! Anyways, thats a little about me and my disjointed path to NROTC. Its great to meet all of you!
