BAY STATE BATTALION
Teaching The Leaders Of Tomorrow
The Bay State Battalion consists of cadets from schools in the Colleges of Worcester Consortium as well as Central Massachusetts. The ROTC offices are located on the Worcester Polytechnic Institute campus in Worcester, MA.
The Department of the Army established a Senior Division Reserve Officer's Training Corps Unit at WPI which started functioning on 1 April 1951 in order to prepare for its first academic year of 1951-1952. Today, WPI hosts the Army ROTC Bay State Battalion, comprised of cadets from the Colleges of the Worcester Consortium, Fitchburg State College and the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
