2c Summer Part 2

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2013) Permanent link   All Posts
 Jessica Ward Cadre was one of the most valuable experiences I’ve yet to have at the Academy. It definitely puts the past two years at the Academy into a different perspective. You see a lot more of why things are done the way they are, but you feel like you are starting to be in a position that you can finally change things. Training the swabs how to become good cadets was so much work. They say it is harder for the cadre and in some ways I would agree. We sleep a lot less and have to coordinate a lot more, but it was a great way to know my classmates and myself better.

After cadre came a week of sailing on Colgates, which was awesome (my swabs were on Eagle during this). I had a blast sailing with some friends around the Academy and to an island and back. I liked it a lot more than I would have guessed. This week before school starts is basically a week of trainings and getting together, but it’s been fun to catch up with all my classmates on what they did this summer. Some people went to Japan and Poland with Academy programs, which were a blast apparently. Hopes this helps catch you up on the rest of my 2/c summer experiences!
