The U.S. Army’s “Decide to Lead” trailer, a virtual reality simulator that provides a glimpse into the daily life of a junior officer, will be stationed on Penn College’s main campus on Thursday, April 15. Students interested in Army ROTC can visit the interactive exhibit, which allows them “to exercise critical-thinking skills as a platoon leader navigating a complex mission assignment while demonstrating their own personal strengths,” said Capt. Jeffery A. Hill, a member of the Bald Eagle Battalion faculty. (Penn College is part of the battalion, along with Lock Haven and Mansfield universities and Lycoming College.) The recruitment vehicle will be on the Susquehanna Street mall, just outside the Keystone Dining Room, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day.
