    My friend from westpoint was telling me about a summer program in which cadets had to spend the summer in another country's service academy (of choice), and I was wondering if USAFA had the same program.

    yes... it usually corresponds with a language you're taking... for example... another cadet from my squad is studying arabic and he'll be going to school in cairo for a semester. this past summer, he spent 4 weeks in jordan speaking the language....

    It all depends where you go. If you go to France or Spain, you attend another service academy. But i do know that in China, our cadets attend a civilian college and are just full time students learning Chinese. In Cairo I imagine it would be civ college, but I'm not sure.
