A New Adventure!

(Choosing the Coast Guard Academy, Class of 2020) Permanent link   All Posts
Farlow Photo My name is 4/c Francesca Farlow from Dallas, Texas! After completing Swab Summer, my shipmates and I became members of Alfa Company where we have continued to push through the beginning of 4/c year together.

 

I think the cadet blog program is a great opportunity for prospective cadets, parents, and friends to get a glimpse of what cadet life is really like. As a prospective cadet I was constantly checking the USCGA website for updated blogs; I loved them. In fact, I always wondered if I would have the opportunity to become a cadet blogger when I got to USCGA, and here I am. Other reasons I wanted to become a cadet blogger are that I love the Academy and I want to share my experiences here with anyone who is curious about attending. Finally, I have heard how tough life here can get and I hope that writing periodic blog entries will help remind me why I came to the Academy and encourage me to enjoy my time here as much as possible.

 

As a blogger, I hope to give insight on my involvement with the softball team and Cadet Activities Council. I also hope to share any general information I learn about the Coast Guard. Being from North Texas I did not know too much about the service before arriving on R-Day, and the more I learn, the more I love it. I am truly excited to be a cadet at the United States Coast Guard Academy and cannot wait to share my experiences!
