I have a question for those of you either in the TAMU Corps of Cadets or who have sons - daughters - friends in the TAMU Corps. What do you know now about the Corps that you wish you had known as Fish year began? The "been nice to have known / wish I had known" might be related to things to bring - or not bring; it might be the types of PT to excell in or the kind of shape to be in; it might be a time management skill; how to break in the shoes and boots; it might be things or situations to look out for or to be prepared for; it might be good advice like Bruno's (paraphrased) admonition to prepare academically and physically while still resting up some. Put differently, what from your experience would it be a good thing for an incoming Fish to know? Similarly, to those of you who are parents of TAMU Cadets - any advice, words of wisdom, cautionary tales, etc for incoming Fish parents, and is that advice gender specific? Thank you in advance for your attention and assistance.
