Jill Friedman

Farmington, CT - Class of 2019 Major: Operations Research and Computer Analysis
Jill Friedman


My name is Jill Friedman and I’m a local from here in Connecticut. I intend on being an Operations Research and Computer Analysis major, which is just a lot of fancy words for applied math. Here at the Academy, I’m on the woman’s rugby team and absolutely love it. I played volleyball and swam in high school so rugby was completely different from every other sport I played but I wanted to change it up and I couldn’t be happier with that decision.

In order to get to the Academy, I participated in the Coast Guard Academy Scholars (CGAS) program. I attended Marion Military Institute in Marion, Alabama for a year of prep school. After prep school, I decided to stay active duty and went to work at Sector Northern New England in South Portland, Maine. Next came the infamous Swab Summer, which was challenging but made easier by my prep experience. Now Swab Summer is over and the academic year is in full swing with a heavy but manageable course load. If you have questions please feel free to email me at [email protected]. I would be happy to answer any questions.
