    Hi

    Wondering what the cadets sleep in? Assuming they can't wear sweats or PJ's.

    We were issued pj's but no one really slept in them -- not sure if they still issue them. Most of the time it was athletic shorts and t-shirt.

    I'm not sure what the specifics are, but during plebe year you can't even touch your bed from 600am to 1030pm. I might be a little off on the hours, but essentially napping is not allowed.

    napping in bed ...is not allowed. napping goes on everywhere else ...

    As one said, getting through Plebe season requires learning to sleep virtually anywhere OTHER than bed ...

    FINALLY somebody asks this question here. I was wondering the same thing last year, but...well...decided to ask my son after Plebe Summer.

    The answer was: PT gear, the bluerim T-shirt and shorts.

    Pretty dependent on the environmentals in your individual room. Some rooms have a run away a/c which requires you to go with sweats, while some rooms have an uncontrollable heat issue which requires you to sleep nearly naked on top of your desk. Do what it takes.

    Does the academy issue sunglasses? My son wants a pair of Ray Bans for his 18th birthday which falls just before he leaves home. I can't see spending the money if he is going to be issued a pair a few weeks later.

    Hi, As far as I know, they don't issue sunglasses. Not sure if your son will be allowed to use them during Plebe Summer but definitely can during academic year.
