Homework, Food, Study…Now Blogging?

(Choosing the Academy, Class of 2021) Permanent link   All Posts

In the midst of the chaos of memorizing meals to cramming for that Chemistry test, it’s hard to find time to sit down and write. Why am I sitting here and writing? Well, it was actually because of these blogs that I wanted to write. I remember reading the blogs on the CGA website and was trying to absorb everything I could about school life here and of course, Swab Summer. I’ve never blogged before, but I’m hoping to give my readers some insight into what life is like here at the Academy.

It was freshman year of high school and I knew that I wanted to serve my country. I began looking into ROTC and a family friend suggested the Coast Guard Academy. After going to Bears Day in 2015, I realized that the people at the Academy were just like me – strong in the desire to serve our country and save those in need. I see this every day at the Academy through the leadership of the upper-class and from the stories of the instructors. I hope this blog will help answer any questions and possibly give some good advice. Email me with any questions at [email protected].
