Busy, Busy, Busy Fourth Class

Belanger Photo Man! Time has just absolutely flown during this first month of school. With one paper done, three exams completed, and four exams fast approaching it seems that I never have time to do anything on my own. If my time management skills were not perfected at prep school I have no idea where I would be at. Even though the load of academics is huge here at the Academy I still have time to have a blast with my fellow shipmates. During the Labor Day weekend I took some time with my fellow Catholics to go to Ender’s Island for a super RELAXING weekend! Then we had our fun Spirit Week before the rival football game versus the Merchant Marine Academy that Saturday. It was a great weekend talking (and having some friendly banter) with our fellow sea service academy.


Over the weekend of September 23rd three of my fellow shipmates and I were able to race in a 40 mile relay in West Hartford to support the community’s public education system. I have never been a runner myself but those 10 miles and placing 10th out of 30 teams motivated me to actually join the running club! I hopefully have three more 5K’s that I plan on running in before Thanksgiving leave! The Academy constantly gives me more and more opportunities that a normal university would not! I cannot wait to find out what other events I can be a part the rest of this year!


If you have any questions please do not hesitate!
