abstract
Although the members of the University of Wyoming Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) are enrolled as typical undergraduate students, their university experience includes an entire, often insulated facet of education outside of the normal academic environment. The University of Wyoming Cowboy Battalion represents a unique culture worth ethnographic education. The researcher, with the oversight of certain cadre within the battalion, conducted a semester-long, participant-observation study of the University of Wyoming ROTC. She concludes that although students participate in regular academic classes and college activities, the education that Army ROTC cadets receive specialized job training in an environment focused on building effective leaders and creating a common singular identity of a soldier. In her ethnography, the researcher seeks to educate the reader regarding the demographics of the Cowboy Battalion, including the values, beliefs, and attitudes of ROTC participants, and give insight as to the life of a cadet.
