My name is Francesca Farlow and I am from Dallas, Texas. I intend on majoring in Operational Research and Computer Analysis here at the Academy. Currently I am on the softball team and I am enjoying it so far. In high school, I played softball and I was a powerlifter so I figured with the major change in lifestyle, playing the same sport would give me some stability.
I found out about the Coast Guard Academy during my sophomore year in high school and visited the campus over the summer. After my junior year, I attended the AIM program, which gave me an excellent taste of Swab Summer. Then this summer I returned to experience the real deal. Swab Summer is now over and the academic year is in full swing. The fourth class course load is tough and managing your time is key but it’s doable. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at Francesca.A.Farlow@uscga.edu.
