Dartmouth College. Student Army Training Corps



The Student Army Training Corp (S.A.T.C) was created during WWI to encourage young men to stay in college instead of enlisting in the Armed Forces. The program offered them the opportunity to continue their education while also preparing them for military service. Men who excelled were then considered for the R.O.T.C. . Physically fit men over the age of eighteen were allowed to enlist in S.A.T.C, at the rank of private, while younger men were allowed to enroll and participate in training. Over 500 colleges and universities participated. Dartmouth College had a general S.A.T.C unit as well as a unit specific to the Naval Department. The program officially began on October 1st, 1918 and was demobilized in November of 1918 following the end of the war.
