Department of Aerospace Studies, provides college-level education to prepare
interested men and women for commissioning as second lieutenants in the United
States Air Force. The program emphasizes leadership, managerial skills, and the
development of each student's sense of personal integrity, honor, and
individual responsibility. The
objective of the AFROTC program is to “Develop air force leaders and citizens
of character to serve the nation.” AFROTC also is recognized nationally by
universities and employers alike as a highly successful leadership program.
AFROTC is a three to four year program
conducted in cooperation with Bowling Green State University. The classes are
taught on the BGSU campus once a week. The student must be enrolled full-time
at The University of Findlay and commute to BGSU once a week for classes. Students initially
spend three hours per week in AFROTC courses. All uniforms and AFROTC textbooks
enrolled in aerospace studies may use these courses as elective credits as
prescribed by the individual colleges. AFROTC leadership training activities
(leadership laboratory) are a part of each course and offer opportunities for
practical leadership training and experience in a supervised environment.
Physical fitness training also is conducted three times a week for one hour.

U.S. Air Force. The service commitment incurred is normally four years (longer
