BIOME events are aimed at strengthening student fellowship, scholarship, and teacher-student relations. These events range from shaving cream softball and pizza parties to seminars from university professors to community service opportunities.
An arm of Union's IJM chapter is the ONE campaign. For more information about the ONE campaign, please visit www.uuonecampuschallenge.tumblr.com
Students will learn the history of the Military - Basic to Advanced - and will be prepared for either military or civilian life. Along with the leadership benefits and being guaranteed a job upon graduation, there are also financial benefits to be found through scholarships and tuition assistance.
Each student who participates in this program will attend a course lecture given each Wednesday on the Jackson State Community College campus. Students will attend a lab each Thursday and attend physical training every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6:30 a.m. Upon graduation, those on ROTC scholarship are on active duty for 4 years and in the reserves for 8 years. No student will be deployed until they have completed their degree.
These courses may or may not count towards your major/minor. This decision is left to the chair of an academic department. These courses can be located on the University Course Schedule under the UT Martin Agreement, listed at 100-level through 400-level.
