Subj: WELCOME ABOARD CLASS OF 2021
1. Congratulations on your decision to become a part of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) as a member of the University of California, Berkeley Unit.
2. If you have not already done so, please visit our website at http://nrotc.berkeley.edu. I direct your attention to the New Student Orientation tab, and particularly the NSO Documents link. There you will find our NSO Welcome Aboard Package – 2017 and the many forms that we will need you to complete prior to your arrival. Most importantly, you will find information concerning Navy and Marine Corps height/weight and physical fitness standards, along with information on a pre-entry conditioning program. We take physical conditioning very seriously and urge you to arrive ready to meet program standards.
3. You are joining an exceptional program with a long and distinguished history. As one of the first six NROTC programs established, we are a small but instrumental Unit in our Navy’s and nation’s history. We are certain your experience will prove to be rewarding and the staff and I look forward to your arrival.
4. Should you have any questions prior to your arrival, please reach out to us at http://nrotc.berkeley.edu/contact-us/.
