    SS/Lodging for parents?

    Things to do: Stop by the Visitor Center on the Academy grounds. Watch the movie in the theater. It gives a great, quick over-view of Academy life. I believe you can set up a tour if you call ahead and have that arranged, or if you know a current cadet. Definitely see the Chapel and drive...

    Girls HAIR length question

    My long-haired daughter reported to I-day in 2008 with a neat bun. Although she can do it neatly and quickly, she was NEVER asked to demonstrate nor was she ever timed in putting it up on that day, or any other day. It was not an issue at all. Several of her friends did cut to a short...

    Cold clothing recommendations

    Just today my daughter sent me pictures of what she wore to the freeeezing game last weekend. She took pictures after each layer. It would make a nice instructional dvd! She had FOUR layers on under her coat and uniform! Then she has pictures of several cadets huddled together for warmth on...

    CC, I did the SAME thing! I printed a picture from WebGuy--PUT IT IN THE "BASIC" SCRAPBOOK I made this time last year, and then found out later it was NOT my Basic!! It did turn out to be her roommate --so I wasn't too far off! LOL!! It's still in the scrapbook today with a "This is NOT...

    SAT Scores, should I send these?

    K DelRosario, Just so you know, the next time you take and send SAT scores, Collegeboard sends ALL current and previous scores--so, USAFA will see these scores eventually. My point: you don't necessarily have to pay again to send these scores right now. When/if you retake the SAT, they...

    Sincere well wishes to the incoming class!....I'm talking about the cadets AND their parents! I would highly recommend the parents go directly to the AOG's site and hook up with Webguy! He will keep you informed of your Basic's every move during Training and you might even get a glimpse in...

    Someone posted this last year and I was SO appreciative! PARENTs: Make your reservations NOW--TODAY-- if you plan to visit USAFA for Parents' Weekend! All the accomodations in town sell out, jack up their rates, etc. So booking now of course gets you a room secured, but sometimes you can...
