ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- The Reserve Officers' Training Corps has set up at Dixie State College in St. George.

The new ROTC program began with an inauguration ceremony Thursday.

Dixie State's ROTC program is a branch of Southern Utah University's program. Both the Dixie State and Southern Utah programs are run through the Utah National Guard and are affiliated with the active-duty ROTC program at Brigham Young University.

Captain Collin Wallace says there are between 20 and 30 Dixie State students enrolled in the ROTC program.

The ROTC program is designed to provide leadership training experience while students decide if they want a military career. Students must have a minimum 2.5 GPA and pass a medical physical to qualify.
