My daughter is attending USAFA as an exchange student from USCGA and I am trying to figure out the differences (after finally figuring out one academy!) and could use some help. Concerning Thanksgiving break...... Generally when will most cadets be released. The calendar says as of LMD ion the Tuesday before Thanksgiving......do most cadets leave that evening? And what is the best bet if flying....Colorado Springs or Denver? Is there a shuttle of any sort to Denver, or do they need to drive/get a ride? The calendar says that the cadet wing returns on Monday December 1 by 1900 hours. Do most cadets return on Monday or Sunday evening? Of less importance is finals week but I'll still ask.... It looks like the last finals are on Thursday, December 19th. Assuming there is a final for each class (is there?), at what time would a cadet be released to come home for Christmas. What could be different in this case is that she would be leaving USAFA for good, so any idea if there would be any time added for out-processing? Thanks all!
