Swab Summer is the beginning of swab (freshman) year, the first part of the journey taken by new cadets. It is the most difficult and demanding period of military training you will experience as a cadet, taking place over a period of eight weeks, one of which is aboard the tall ship EAGLE.
At the end of Swab Summer you and your classmates understand the expectations of cadet life and are prepared to work as a team.
