    Coast Guard Academy superintendent to retire

    That's too bad - my Cadet is 2012, and we were really hoping Rear Adm. Burhoe would still be there for his commencement/commissioning. But, best of luck to him on whatever lies ahead. From everything we've seen and heard, he seems to have done great things at the Academy and for the Corps of...

    Girl/Boyfriend & Rday

    We did not bring the significant other to RDay (very good decision for the reasons stated by previous posters), but did for Mystic Flag, which was a very difficult day also. They see a more reserved individual, who seemed to be always looking over their shoulder for cadre, unable to make a...

    My Cadet spent the night at Annapolis a few weeks ago--he said the food was horrible, close to not even being edible. He commented how much he appreciates the CGA food now!

    Calculus?! the plebe-killer

    Son scored 5 on AP Calc test, then tested out and was enrolled in Calc II first semester (at another SA). Did okay, but admitted he could have benefited more from Calc I again, in the college environment. Calc III was a killer for him - didn't catch on to the teaching style of the instructor...

    SA Loan

    I believe the current 2/c Cadets were able to apply for a $32,000 loan at around 1.25% interest rate. Not sure of the repayment terms of the loan.

    Some ideas to ponder (if they don't already have) - good, small digital camera, flat screen computer monitor for use with their laptop, printer, noise cancelling headphones, subwoofer, small digital picture frame, their State flag to hang outside their room, magazine subscription (magazine drive...

    Culumbus Day weekend?

    Normally, 4/c Cadets (barring any military/sports obligation) have Liberty on Columbus Day weekend - beginning after last military obligation on Friday, and ending on Sunday. In 2010, Columbus Day weekend happens to also be Parents' Weekend, expect things to be different, as there is usually a...

    R-Day things again

    Last year, my swab wore the sneakers that he planned to wear for Swab summer. The clothes from swab summer were locked away with the backpack and other unnecessary things in the trunk room - they came home at the Holiday break in December.
