  • DAILY ROUTINE: Monday - Friday
    s ongoing cadet blog 1300 1540 Afternoon Classes Kody Kekoa Class of 2015 If not for my Fundamentals of Navigation class I would surely suffer as an officer in the Coast Guard To prepare us for our future my instructors assign hours of meticulous work for my classmates and me Due to the amount of plotting charting and graphing my navigation homework has become a new hobby of mine This class is great because I gain nautical knowledge which directly applies to working in the fleet Read Kody s ongoing cadet blog 1300 1540 Afternoon Classes Julie Kane Class of 2013 Every cadet takes lifetime sports classes including golf racquetball and tennis This past semester I had tennis Twice a week my class met down at the tennis courts overlooking the Thames River to learn tennis rules and techniques Once we learned the basic skills that we needed we played each other in doubles matches Even though I will not be playing in the Wimbledon anytime soon tennis has been a great stress reliever during the school day and we had a lot of fun Read Julie s ongoing cadet blog 1300 1540 Afternoon Classes Alex Min Class of 2015 Leaders in U S History is one of my favorite classes The class covers the shaping of American Freedom from the first colonies up until present day Through numerous different article sources and two designated books Professor Zuczek sums all the information up and helps us grasp the meaning of freedom and how it has evolved Read Alex s ongoing cadet blog 1300 1540 Afternoon Classes Carlos Quintero Class of 2014 Taking Physics II gives us the opportunity to think critically to solve abstract problems The course deals with electric and magnetic fields which you can not physically see Most classes we apply what we learn in class and do a lab to reinforce concepts Putting the things we ve learned in class to work in the lab helps to understand the concepts The good thing about the Academy is that since all of my classmates are taking Physics II if I ever need help understanding the information there are a lot of people to ask Read Carlos ongoing cadet blog 1300 1540 Afternoon Classes Kevin Subramanian Class of 2015 Principles of Fitness and Wellness is a class that is very important to our professional training We learn about the exercise and nutrition goals of the Coast Guard and we are expected to bring them to our units when we are in the fleet Like other health classes we work out make meal plans and learn about human anatomy in order to improve our health and the health of others Read Kevin s ongoing cadet blog 1300 1540 Afternoon Classes Alexis Chavarria Aguilar Class of 2015 During the second semester of my fourth class year I took Personal Defense I with Coach Ulysses Grant The class was held twice a week and revolves around basic self defense techniques The class involved various forms of martial arts teaching cadets how to quickly disable an attacker and how to effectively use time and space Our Personal Defense class is also a great workout and has also helped me develop a newfound confidence in my ability to defend myself Read Alexis ongoing cadet blog 1300 1540 Afternoon Classes Brianna Townsend Class of 2014 This is not your typical college course but Applications in Navigation has to be one of the most useful courses that you take while at the Academy We learn how to use maneuvering boards to determine wind speed and the actions that other ships will take and how it will affect your boat We also work with charts by making corrections on them tracking a course and at the end of the semester we present a Navigation Brief on a transit through a harbor This course correlates directly to the missions of the Coast Guard in the practice of safe boating It is extremely useful and a very exciting class to take Read Brianna s ongoing cadet blog 1600 1800 Athletic Period Jessica Ward Class of 2013 For those of you who don t know rowing is a fall and spring sport although some people only row for one season each year The fall season involves longer races that are 5K in length and include the famous Head of the Charles Every 10 seconds or so a boat begins the race thus the races are against the clock and the results compared afterwards The spring season is comprised of sprint 2K races For these races the boats all line up and race simultaneously next to each other which is much more exciting The Academy generally rows eights which means there are eight rowers and one coxswain in each boat Like most of the rowers at the Academy I walked onto the rowing team with absolutely no experience It s been an interesting journey Rowing is a sport that brings its own mental and physical challenges All of the other sports I have ever played have been ball centric soccer basketball volleyball which require thinking on your feet anticipation stop and go sprinting cutting etc Rowing is the same motion over and over again in unison with seven other people while balancing in a narrow boat It sounds almost mindless but it requires constant focus In my own way I have grown to really enjoy the challenge of it Plus since you row backwards you get the added joy of seeing your opponents as you beat them I came to the Academy because I wanted to be challenged and rowing has definitely been a part of it Last year myself and another 2 c were elected co Captains for this year Had someone told me in high school that I would be elected as captain of a sports team I would have been surprised but the Academy has helped me grow in ways I couldn t have imagined If anyone
