Would getting a summer job be one of the many ways I can improve myself? If so what kind of jobs would you recommend?

A summer job that enhances your "academic profile" to a program would help, the problem is that most of the engineering type jobs are not offered until after your sophomore year. An alternative if you are looking for one is the NROTC Program at Tulane (cross town school). You can meet with staff prior to start of the fall semester and walk on, no commitment until your Junior year, or can apply for a "side load scholarship" after one semester for two years. If you have a way to privately communicate I can give you more pertinent personal help.

It really depends on your metric, but I'd put Webb at the top of any list when talking about Nav Arch, mostly because of the caliber of people there.
I don't even think of Webb, as I hardly ever run into their graduates in what I need those guys to do. But, you are absolutely right, a top notch program. My bad.

I agree with Impulsive regarding reaching out to Tulane NROTC. They've worked with people at UNO before and will have a decent idea on how to help you. The Aviation Officer should be the freshman advisor, a quick google search gave this number: 504-247-1612. I would give them a call to see how they can help. You can also see if you can meet in person (or zoom, if needed), the building itself is pretty cool and has a lot of memorabilia that I always enjoyed looking at.

My sister and I often laugh that both of our sons are at Boat School. The differences in experiences couldn't be more polar opposite than USNA vs WEBB. My nephew has long hair, goes to class in flip-flops. Yet both will produce very well-educated engineers.
