    I’m booking a hotel for PW. Is our DD allowed to stay with us in the hotel over that weekend?

    Are they not allowed to stay on Friday anymore? When I was there, they were cleared off Friday night, just had to be present Saturday for the game...

    Last year, our DS was also able to stay with us Friday night. The cadets needed to be back on campus early Saturday morning and were able to start their weekend leave after the football game.

    Yes, Sat/Sun probably. That is when DS stayed with us. Some do on Fri, but they need to be back for the football game early Sat morning. We didn't want to chance it so he slept at USAFA.

    We arrived on Thursday and met our Doolie at the Visitors Center on Thursday afternoon. He couldn’t leave on Thursday, but it was great to spend some time with him. Some families bring a dinner and eat by the Chapel with their Doolie.

    For the past three years at least, yes, the freshmen were allowed off campus Friday night (required to be back Sat am), and Saturday and Sunday nights as well.

    That is what we did on Wed and Thur evening. We grabbed subs from Subway and ate while sitting on the chapel steps.
