On the eve of Indoc day zero, good luck to the incoming class. Three pieces of advice to the plebe candidates: 1. Hydrate (way more than you think you need to); 2. Have the backs of your classmates (your reputation at KP starts the moment you step on campus and stays with you throughout your time at KP and beyond); and 3. Keep your sense of humor (there is plenty if BS you will have to deal with at KP, so let the fun moments carry you through the valleys). One piece of advice for new parents: Let your DD/DS thrive at KP. They made it this far and have accomplished a lot in their young lives with your support. They have what it takes to make their way through KP with less support from you and more support from their new classmates. Time to let go a bit (easier said than done, I know). Then be prepared to be amazed. Fair winds and following seas to all!
