CADET LIFE
THE CADET EXPERIENCE
A great deal can be said of life at the Coast Guard Academy, and each graduate of the Academy has a unique story to tell about his or her undergraduate experience. But key aspects of life at the Academy are shared by all cadets throughout their four-year experience.

It's challenging.
All cadets study mathematics, science, nautical science, engineering and liberal arts. There are no "easy" majors, and all cadets are expected to finish in four years.

It's physical.
Rigorous physical training is crucial to the Coast Guard mission of service above self. It's part of daily life at the Academy.

It's military.
Coast Guard cadets have a very different experience than students at a civilian college. The experience is relentless, but the rewards are invaluable.
