The ‘Rents Are Here

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Rossi Photo A time-honored tradition, known as Parents’ Weekend, is probably one of the best weekends here at the Academy for many reasons. The first and most obvious is because a majority of cadets get to see their families and spend time with them. Another is because of the life and enjoyment the parents bring to the Academy. It is very refreshing to interact, meet, and see the parents exploring our campus. Lastly, the best part of Parents’ Weekend is our parents get a little taste of what we go through on a day-to-day basis. After the weekend they’ll have more appreciation for what we do and will understand why we can sometimes get upset or stressed out. This is a great thing for them to experience because the next time they get a call and their cadet is having a bad day, they can give better advice and be more understanding of the circumstances. I personally find this very important because although we all like to think that we are grown up and mature adults, we still need that person to vent to. And who better to vent to than your family because they will always be there for you.
