Last First Day of School

(Academics, Just for Fun, Class of 2015) Permanent link
Cantrell Photo Today marked the “last” first day of school for my undergraduate degree. It is crazy to think about that and to finally write our graduation year at the top of my papers. The corps just returned from winter break, which was full of sand for some and snow for others. I was fortunate enough to go home for a week to spend time with my family and friends before heading over to the west coast of Florida for the swimming and diving training trip. My time spent at home was very relaxing and fun. It was great to spend time with the people I care about and miss so much while I am at school. The training trip was a lot of hard work but also very fun.


It was hard coming back to school mostly because of the significant change of weather, but I am happy to be back with my friends and to complete this final semester together. Our billet lists are due in a couple of days, which is exciting and nerve-racking all at the same time. I am ready to submit my list just to stop thinking about it until Billet Night in March.


Not much to report yet for this semester. Since classes just started, the homework, quizzes, papers, and tests have not begun, but they will before I know it.


I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with their loved ones and I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year!

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2015) Permanent link
Wu Photo It is a surreal feeling to finally be in the year that my classmates and I are graduating. Since Swab Summer, “2015” has accompanied us through our cadet experience. We were referred to as the “Class of 2015” and that was where our identity lied.


Going into the last semester at the Academy, I am feeling bittersweet about graduating. Just when the routine at the Academy is becoming familiar, it is almost time for us to leave. We are all looking into available billets, which are the job assignments and locations for ensigns. Our jobs and the responsibilities involved in being an officer seem so foreign right now even though it is in our near future. Aside from planning for the future and putting in for assignments, I am excited for all the events coming up for us! I am most excited about spending my last semester with my friends and having a good time before we disperse across the United States.


As a class, we were pretty successful at leading the corps fall semester, I hope we can continue our positive influence spring semester and set the underclass up for success as they finish off their Academy experience and eventually join us in the operational fleet.


I was very fortunate to have a good 2014 and I looking forward to what 2015 will hold for me! First off will be the last first day of classes!
