Summer: So Close Yet So Far

(Academics, The Cadet Experience, Class of 2016) Permanent link   All Posts
Roesch Photo With the end of classes quickly approaching and my summer right around the corner, I find it hard to concentrate in classes. All I can think about is what I will be doing in just a few weeks. I was lucky enough to get just what I asked for as a summer assignment. I will be on phase one of Eagle and then heading off to USCGC Healy in Seattle, Washington. I’ve never been to any of the places I’m scheduled to stop at before, so this should be a summer to remember! I’m just so ready to finish with 4/c year, become a 3/c, and get some experience in the fleet. Moreover, this summer will really give me the opportunity to meet more of my classmates (since it’s so hard to get to know your class when you’re squaring around in the wardroom and hallways in Chase Hall). I know I should be focusing on the crazy amounts of homework and the long list of tests left to tackle before this semester finally ends, but it’s just so hard when you have the opportunity of a lifetime waiting right around the corner.


On a separate note, congratulations to those who have received an appointment – especially those who have accepted them! 2015 and 2016 cannot wait to welcome you aboard ;)


As always, if you have any questions or need advice I am here to help you out as best as I can. Don’t feel shy to ask a question about swab summer or 4/c year – there is no such thing as a stupid question!
