CDT Diego

I am a Criminal Law and Justice Major. I have always felt a need to help my country and the serving the citizens of this country. I plan to use my degree to obtain a job with CPD and eventually move on to a federal agency. I joined the ROTC program for multiple reasons but the major reason that influenced my decision was serving my country and I couldn’t think of a better way than as an Army officer. What I love about the ROTC program is the ability to grow as an individual. From not quite not knowing what I was going in my MS1 year to having the great opportunity to be first sergeant as I finish my MS3 year. You will develop as a leader along side peers and build off each other. ROTC has been an amazing part of my life and I am glad I have the opportunity to be part of an extraordinary organization. Thanks to the ROTC program I have accomplished obtaining a German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge, being part of the Dean’s List in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and many other accomplishments I wouldn’t have been able to accomplished without the support from ROTC.
