POTSDAM – Clarkson ROTC training on Thursday will involve what look like assault rifles, but aren’t really.

This Thursday afternoon, Sept. 30, Clarkson Army ROTC will hold a training exercise in the vicinity of the Hamlin-Powers residence halls lawn, at the corner of Maple Street and Clarkson Avenue.

This training involves the use of rubberized M-16s, which are not capable of firing a projectile.

The university says Army ROTC will maintain a controlled training environment throughout and not interfere with any passersby.

If there are any questions or concerns, contact Clarkson Campus Safety and Security at 268-6666 or Army ROTC at 265-7705.
