Good luck to those "about to be Rats" who are wending your way toward Lexington this week. Keep your head down, remember they will neither kill you nor eat you and that the secret to success is just to carry on, keep an eye out on how your Brother Rats are doing, and internalize the honor code. It will go by faster than you think.Moms, Dads: once they march off- don't stand around the gate to barracks trying to see in- it's just depressing for all of you! They will get a short call home sometime next week when they meet their faculty advisor. If Parents want to be there for a very nicely done event- the New Cadet Oath and parade thru New Market will be worth going to in a couple of weeks, and of course please go to Parents Weekend (for which I hope that you have already reserved your hotel rooms!) Good luck to all of you!
