Start your Army Career at Cornell University

Join the legacy as you train to become an officer in the U.S. Army while also studying at a renowned Ivy League institution in Ithaca, New York.¬†As a Cornell Alumni and Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, you would follow the path of many Cornellian’s ahead of you. Cornell University has a unique history within the United States Army, providing more army officers than any other program, including the United States Military Academy (West Point) during World War I. Until 1960, all male students at Cornell were required to take at least two years of Military Sciences classes. Because of this, the Excelsior Battalion has a long legacy at Cornell University.
