Who We Are

Stony Brook University offers the opportunity to participate in the Army Reserve Officer's Training Corps (Army ROTC). Task Force Havoc began teaching class at SUNY Stony Brook in 2006 supported by the  SUNY Stony Brook ROTC Club. These classes continue to support students at Stony Brook as well as other schools on Eastern Long Island such as Dowling College, St. Joseph's University (Long Island campus), and Suffolk Community College.

What We Do

Military training through the Army ROTC enhances the foundation of academic learning with the leadership and communication skills necessary to commission as a second lieutenant and serve on active duty, reserve or national guard status. 

As an integral part of the program, freshmen and sophomore level (basic course) cadets enroll in and attend a ½ credit class, while junior and senior cadets (advanced course) complete one 3 credit class per semester.

At Stony Brook University, physical training is conducted three days a week from 0630 to 0730. Classes and laboratory sessions are conducted on Fridays from 0900 to 1600, or until complete, as determined by the cadre. Laboratory sessions provide the opportunity for cadets to hone tactical skills, are conducted in various areas on campus, and typically last 2 to 3 hours. Field training exercises occur once a semester off campus with the entire Battalion and usually run from a Friday through a Sunday.

Available scholarships can include full tuition or housing, books and a monthly stipend.
