The First Month

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2018) Permanent link   All Posts
Coburn PhotoIt is hard to imagine, but we are already done our first month of the new school year. As a 4/c, this month has entailed many changes and new experiences, some good and some that were very challenging. The school part is definitely an adjustment and requires more work than I am used to putting in, but the teachers and especially the upperclassman are very good at trying to help you succeed. Also setting up appointments with your academic advisor will help you, especially if you are ever feeling stressed out. Also if you are ever stressed out try to go outside and take a break from the schoolwork.


Fall lacrosse started last week and I am getting even more excited for the season to come around. Speaking of sports, we had the Secretaries’ Cup last weekend. The Secretaries’ Cup is a weekend in the fall when Coast Guard competes against Kings Point in a variety of events. We had spirit week approaching the games and overall it was a very fun week to be a 4/c, because there were many opportunities to be given carry-on. There was also a pep rally on Thursday, which was the first one of the school year, and it was probably the best pep rally I have ever been to. This year we swept the games and beat Kings Point in soccer, volleyball, and yes, even football. Since my brother is a 3/c at Kings Point he came to the games and I got to see him and my dad. My dad was wearing a Coast Guard shirt and a Kings Point hat and as one might imagine, he got a lot of weird looks.
