Navy ROTC to Celebrate 75 Years on Campus


The Navy ROTC unit will celebrate its 75th anniversary in November 2015 with its 29th-annual alumni reunion, held at the James Mulva ROTC Center atop the Center for Liberal Arts (CLA) building, their fifth home on campus since the fall of 1940. The weekend will be filled with golf (Navy vs. Marine Corps), alumni awards and guest speaker dinners, barbecue, a home football game, and the awarding of nearly $70,000 in scholarships and officer swords to the midshipmen and officer candidates of the UT NROTC unit. The first part of a unit history is to also be shared with reunion attendees and others. Visit the alumni site at to find out more about the reunion and unit history.
