Where For Art Thou, Summer?

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Gurtler Photo The school year has come and gone so quickly, I am left wondering where it went. As of twenty minutes ago, I am officially done with classes for the 2011-2012 academic school year. Although this is a tremendous load off of my chest, I still have four finals next week. My mom keeps telling me to be that “Little Engine that could” and keep chugging along. All I can respond is with a sarcastic, “Aye Aye, Mom.”


On another note, I have a summer ahead of me that is sure to be exciting and full of new experiences. I am beyond thrilled by the opportunity to venture out into the fleet. I have been assigned to go underway on USCGC Eagle for the first six weeks of summer, Station Oak Island, North Carolina for the following six, and then home to Wisconsin for the final five. My friends and teammates joke that I might actually get a tan while living near the beach this summer!


Additionally, the 4/c were informed which company we will be in for our remaining three years here. I was fortunate enough to be placed in Hotel Company. Hotel is responsible for morale and community service within the Corps of Cadets. Although as excited as I am to experience a new company, nothing can compare to how thrilled I am to no longer be a 4/c! Yay!
