Clubs and Teams
Ranger Challenge is Cadet Command's version of the Army's Best Ranger Competition. Ranger Challenge is a physically and mentally demanding competition between teams from different Army ROTC units across the nation. This year, the University of Alaska will be sending a Ranger Challenge team from both the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the University of Alaska Anchorage to compete. During the competition cadets conduct a series of written and physical tests as well as tactical exercises to determine the best team. Last November the University of Alaska Ranger Challenge team traveled to Oregon to compete against several other teams in a regional competition.
The UAA Army ROTC Color Guard is a team that is responsible for the protection, care, and display of the unit's colors. Depending on the event size and Color Guard composition, a number of different flags can be presented at any time. Flags commonly displayed are those of the United States, the Alaska State flag, the Army flag, the Cadet Command flag, and the local Army ROTC unit flag. UAA's Color Guard conducts events at many UAA athletic events and community events such as Alaska Aces games.
Seawolf Cadet Club
UAA Army ROTC is a member of the UAA Student Clubs and Organizations. The Seawolf Cadet Club is open to all UAA students and is a great opportunity to get involved in the program if a student's schedule conflicts with Army ROTC classes.
