The Ranger Club is an extracurricular activity designed to honor the U.S. Rangers, elite soldiers of the U.S. Army. This organization is for cadets looking for extra training in combatives, patrolling, physical fitness, and advanced military tactics. The club is a university recognized organization and participates in many university functions as well as two major competitions per year. In the fall, the club primarily focuses on the Ranger Challenge Competition. This event, hosted at Fort McCoy, Wisc., pits schools from around the Midwest in military style competition.
