If you're looking for colleges with strong ROTC programs, you'll be pleased to know that many colleges and universities across the United States offer quality ROTC programs for students interested in pursuing military careers.

Some notable colleges with well-regarded ROTC programs include:

1. Virginia Military Institute (VMI) — A highly respected military college known for its strong ROTC program in all branches (Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps).

2. Texas A&M University — Offers comprehensive ROTC programs with opportunities for leadership development.

3. Norwich University — As the oldest private military college, Norwich has a well-established reputation and offers all ROTC branches.

4. The Citadel — Another prestigious military college which provides comprehensive ROTC programs.

5. United States Military Academy (West Point), United States Naval Academy, and United States Air Force Academy — These federal service academies offer top-notch education as well as military training, but they do not have traditional ROTC programs, as their education and training model are different.

Note that many other civilian universities also host strong ROTC programs for different branches of the military, so you may find more options if you research further.

To find more information on schools offering ROTC programs, you can visit the respective ROTC websites for each military service branch:

- Army (Army ROTC): https://www.goarmy.com/rotc.html

- Navy and Marine Corps (NROTC): https://www.nrotc.navy.mil/

- Air Force (Air Force ROTC): https://www.afrotc.com/

These websites provide comprehensive information on the colleges and universities that offer ROTC programs, as well as details about the curriculum, scholarships, and benefits available for participants. Additionally, you can directly contact the ROTC departments at the schools you're interested in for more insights into their respective programs.

Remember that your choice of college should also consider factors like location, campus culture, and your academic interests to ensure a well-rounded college experience. Good luck in your search!
