Ranger Challenge Detachment

The Ranger Challenge Detachment is a close knit group of individuals who compete annually in a multi-state competition called Ranger Challenge. Cadets from 10 schools in the PNW area compete for the annual title of Ranger Challenge Competition Winner and take home the trophy.  The Ranger Challenge Detachment cadets focus heavily on physical fitness, and practice a variety of military events including Rope Bridge, land navigation, ruck marching, hand grenade assault course, weapons assembly/disassembly, and individual movement techniques to prepare for the annual event.  They must demonstrate technical and tactical proficiency in several events to include call for fire, evaluate a casualty, apply first aid, run 5 miles in under 40 minutes, pass a PT Test scoring 80 points in each event, and successfully pass a land navigation course.


Field Training Exercises

Field training exercises occur at least once a quarter. They provide unique challenges, camaraderie, adventure, and a break from college life.  In the fall semester, cadets participate in a white water rafting trip and leader's reaction course. In the Spring, cadet will practice small unit tactics, land navigation as well as be partnered with other ROTC programs in the area.



Eastern cadets take part in many social events throughout the year.  Among these are cook-outs and tail-gating parties at EWU football games, and the annual Dining In and Military Ball.


Color Guard

The EWU Army ROTC Color Guard is an important part of the ROTC program. The Color Guard participates in a variety of events from EWU football and basketball games to private ceremonies for large organizations and local parades.
