A Month of Change

(Academics, The Cadet Experience, Class of 2017) Permanent link   All Posts
Glick Photo This month for me is a month of change. People grow apart, friends and significant others go separate ways, and new friends are made. 3/c year is a time of change, as the seasons change with us. I recently changed my major to Management from Government, and I am excited to start learning about something I know nothing about. I am making new friends, leaving some behind, and learning a lot about myself. A 3/c cadet is a 4/c cadet who can look around. I’ve been looking around a lot, and taking in the Academy, and my perspective is a lot different than last year. As a 3/c, you see everything that’s right with this place, and the few things that should be improved. I am going to church more often, finding meaning in life, and looking forward to the rewards of 2/c summer. I am rehashing out who I am, learning what I like, and learning what I don’t like, but I am still the same person. I am still active with cadet bands, and my brass band is playing at this year’s winter formal in the wardroom. I am helping my 4/c through the semester, and I am thinking about going out for leadership positions next year after interacting with the 4/c in my company. I was also recently selected to study in Poland this summer with the American Service Academy Program through the Jewish Heritage Museum. Through countless essays, an online application, and weeks of waiting, I was accepted to study the Holocaust in New York, Washington, and in Poland at Auschwitz-Birkenau. It will be a moving experience, but I am certain that I will learn a lot about myself and about the history of the Holocaust.

 

This semester is very busy, and it is a mad race to Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving, there are only a few weeks of school, then finals followed by winter leave. This semester is one I am trying to get through doing my best.
