Seton Hall’s Color’s Guard is a team open to all cadets willing to put in the extra work to improve their Drill and Ceremony, as well as their confidence. We have been given the opportunities to present the colors in front of a sold out Seton Hall basketball game, the very first XFL home game for the New York Guardians, and many other fantastic venues through the years. Whether you are looking for a team of 2 cadets to raise a flag, or a team of 20 we look forward to helping you. To fill out the 2023-2024 Color Guard Request Form, click here

Ranger Challenge is ROTC’s varsity sport and is a great way to not only challenge yourself physically, but mentally as well. Pirate Battalion competes every year at Ft. Dix against other programs in our brigade after 6 weeks of training on campus to prepare for the event. The competition includes a fitness event, land navigation, weapons assembly, grenade assault course, obstacle course, one-rope-bridge, TCCC (first aid and casualty care), 6-mile ruck, and burden challenge. These events require high levels of physical fitness and mental agility, which is something we train for as a team. Ranger Challenge is a great way to set yourself apart from your peers and to learn valuable soldiering skills.
