Aimed towards current midshipmen or recent graduates, what clubs where/are you involved in? Which were notable? How many clubs could you be part of at once? How did clubs affect your workload?
Also varsity athlete here - 2 seasons per year. I was also in one group that is now on the club list and that was it for me. I needed to sped a lot of time on my academics, especially the first couple of years and really did not have a lot of down time to fill. Thirty years later, my son started off in a major club/ECA but then transitioned to my former varsity sport and did just that except for being in the flyingclub for a year or two.I was a varsity athlete and held in company leadership roles. Between those items and academics, I barely had enough time to turn around. I was was in Semper Fi Society, but really only attended meetings, lectures, and stuff like that. There wasn’t time to attend field events and things like on the weekends. Those were usually game days. It all depends on what you want to do, how involved you get and academics. If you have a decent handle on academics and do intramurals, you probably have more time for things. Some clubs like Glee Club take a lot more time than others.
