Hey, my name is Spencer Zwenger and I am one of the many great individuals of the class of 2015. I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. Yes, Kentucky. People always ask, “How did you find out about the Coast Guard Academy when you live in a landlocked state?” Honestly, I just stumbled upon it looking through colleges one day. After eyeing nine or ten different colleges, and visiting quite a few of those, I knew that the Coast Guard Academy was one of my top choices. My amazing experience at AIM in the summer of 2010 really solidified my decision to come to this great institution. I’m here because I want to serve the citizens of the United States and I believe that this humanitarian service will allow me to do so.
Deciding to join this tight knit family at the Coast Guard Academy has been the best decision I have ever made. Even though we have only been here for a mere three months I have already made lifelong friends and had the experiences of a lifetime. If you have any questions about anything, please contact me at Spencer.M.Zwenger@uscga.edu. GO BEARS!
