September 2009, EOU’s Army ROTC program came into existence.

On 16 September 1991, EOU’s GOLD program came into existence. The lineage of the 354th GOLD
program dates back to WWII, during which Army Pilots were trained at EOU’s campus here in
La Grande under the unit designation known as the 354th College Training Detachment.

In August 2009, 354th GOLD Re-Joined the ROTC world with one cadet. We have grown since.
