What Participants Say
The program enlightened my path as a Hispanic American…. To add to my excitement, the fact that I saw so many young women as Cadets, really motivated me. I told my parents this is opportunity that I cannot pass up!
An eye-opening experience, and I loved every minute of it...Everybody I came across was quick with a smile, and every single question I had about the academy going in was answered by the time I left.
All the cadets I saw looked like they were enjoying their time at CGA possibly from the bond they've all created together through Swab Summer.
An awful lot of information was presented and the opportunity to ask questions of people with different experiences and perspectives was brilliant.
