United States Coast Guard Academy Top Questions

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?


When I talk to my friends about my school, I like to brag about how hard it is and how I make it through the semesters on 3-4 hours of sleep a night all while juggling the stupid stuff the upperclass make us, as freshman, do. I also brag about all the amazing and unique opportunities that the academy experience offers. This past summer, I saved 9 lives, kept a boat from sinking, and traveled around Europe and crossed the atlantic on a 295 foot sailboat. I also like to throw in how much I get paid.


I don't really brag but they tend to gush over how I went to a military academy and how it was free tuition.


Probably the fact that I am playing varsity football because a lot of my friends miss playing football.
