101st Night

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Jordan Keith Right now I’m coming off a high of accomplishment. Tonight the Class of 2014 experienced one of the traditions of this fine institution: 101st Night. 101st Night, to quote from the Running Light, is “The chance for the Fourth Class to earn 100th Day.” In other words, the 4/c revert back to swab status and the 2/c revert to cadre status. Two things happened tonight: we earned the chance to become “kings for a day” tomorrow on the 100th day. Tomorrow, we will become 2/c for a day while the 4/c have to brace up, do orderlies, and spew indoc. While we get to act normal, use Facebook, and talk to each other in the passage ways.

Hotel did a great job, and I think I proved to my Swab Summer company that I’ve come a long way since that day hot and humid R-Day.

I’m looking forward to 100th Day, then Boards, then Challenge of the Guardian, then carry on! I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

If you have any questions about 101st Night, 100th Day, or any of the Academy’s traditions feel free to email me at
