The Week Before AIM

(Why AIM) Permanent link   All Posts
Aliyah Brown

It is now the week before AIM; I am excited and nervous. I am eager to see the Academy’s beautiful campus and meet new people. I am nervous about whether or not I am prepared for the physical training and if I am ready for this new experience.

I am most looking forward to being able to see what life as a cadet is like. I think it will help me decide if the Coast Guard Academy is the right place for me. I am hesitant about the rigor of the physical training that we may experience while attending AIM. I think this will allow me to see what I need to do in order to prepare for Academy life.

I hope to learn more about the Coast Guard’s mission and career opportunities as I am not as knowledgeable about the Coast Guard compared to other branches. I hope to also learn how the degrees earned can be used towards life after the service. I hope to learn more about the academic facilities and opportunities offered at the Academy. As I begin packing for next week, I hope I can gain some new skills and learn about Academy life from this exciting upcoming week.
