WELCOME ABOARD - THE JAYHAWK BATTALION
This is the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps at the University of Kansas. The Jayhawk Battalion consistently produces Navy and Marine Corps officers among the best in the country. With a proven track record of success at national drill meets, our unit is quickly fostering a reputation of excellence among NROTCs, particularly those in the Midwest.
With roots dating back to 1942, the Jayhawk Battalion has a long and distinguished history at KU. Midshipmen hail our program for allowing them to attend college as traditional students while receiving training vital to their success in the fleet. Better yet, the Jayhawk Battalion has an exemplary record of Midshipmen earning a commission into their warfare areas of choice.
