Biographical / Historical

The Student Army Training Corps (SATC) was organized at Tufts in the late summer of 1918 to take the place temporarily of the ROTC during World War I.The purpose of the SATC was to train enlisted men for special military assignments. After a twelve-weeks' term, men from each unit were to be sent to officers' training campus, non-commissioned officer' schools, or cantonments, or were assigned to assist in instructing others at SATC units. The SATC began training in mid-October, after the opening of the college had been delayed by an influenza epidemic. The armistice was signed less than a month later. On November 27, 1918, orders were received to demobilize the SATC.
