    My roommate for a couple of semesters was an international cadet from Honduras.

    You'll find, as an international cadet, that your American classmates will fully embrace you.

    If there are other cadets from your country, you'll also have that support network. I think international cadets were close. There's some adapting that international cadets have to do to just get used to life in the United States, but never hesitate to ask for help or tips from classmates or your upperclass.

    I am from Georgia and we have a lot of support from United States and specially from United States Coast Guard Academy. We have a good number of cadets in every service academy but i have special feelings for Coast Guard Academy too. As my Cadet friends tell me about Coast Guard everything is special about the place and everyone is so warm to everyone. United States and the Coast Guard Academy showed a huge amount of support and tolerance after the car accident. Soso and Beso were my friends and i am honored that i knew them and everything they achieved in the Coast Guard Academy walls makes me even proud to be a Georgian
