Cadet Activities

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2013) Permanent link   All Posts
 Jessica Ward The size of the Academy does limit the number of cadet activities that go on. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. A few weeks ago the Academy’s Mock Trial Club competed at Regional’s. Mock Trial is an extracurricular competition where the same case is given to schools all across the nation and they put on a three-hour “mock” trial – one school functions as the plaintiff and the other is the defense. We prepared attorneys and witnesses for both sides, so we were ready for whichever was called.

Next week I am going with the Cadet Law Society and will be a mock juror at the Naval Justice School as they prepare attorneys for the military. Similarly, several of my classmates spent a few days in D.C. learning about how the Coast Guard interacts in our nation’s political center. What is really neat is that not everyone, myself included, who does these events is a government major. These activities are open to anyone who is interested. While many of the opportunities that other college students receive are not available at the Academy, there are plenty, you only have to look.
