The CGA is headed into space again! Watch the live launch at the link below. Aboard this shuttle are satellites the CGA will use in the radome atop Smith Hall here on campus. Students will collect and analyze data transmitted from their satellite for approximately five days before the ThinSat or CubeSat deorbits and burns up in the atmosphere. Each resupply mission to the station delivers scientific investigations in the areas of biology and biotechnology, Earth and space science, physical sciences, and technology development and demonstrations.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and we are highlighting our Cadets Against Sexual Assault club. Did you know that cadets in CASA work closely with the 'It’s On Us' campaign, which was launched at the White House in 2014. The goal of this campaign is to end sexual assault on all campuses across America. #SAAM

Regimental Communications Officer: 1/c Jonathan Cardinal The Coast Guard Academy is much more than an academic institution and I am grateful for the growth it has afforded me. During my nearly four years here, I have specifically learned the importance growing throughout discomfort, being a shipmate, and prioritizing first things first. Grow Throughout Discomfort Much of the development we receive from the Academy comes from the massive amounts of stress and discomfort it puts on us. We are held to a constant high academic, military, and physical standard where we risk being thrown out if we don’t perform. This is uncomfortable but is time proven to produce future leaders. It is important to not lose sight of the reason we all came to the Academy in the first place. We will soon be depended upon as select leaders in the Coast Guard and must take these discomforts of life as opportunities for growth. Be a Shipmate Everybody needs a “shipmate,” or buddy that is there for you when times are tough. I have many true shipmates at the Academy that I know will drop everything to help me and I the same for them. The idea of being a shipmate is founded upon unconditional love and a generous spirit of service to one another. As I lead, I have the opportunity to put this into practice on a large scale. This semester I will do my best to serve the Corps of Cadets, make a positive impact on the Academy, and inspire others to do the same. Simply put, let’s strive to be shipmates because we are all fighting on the same team. First Things First Life can be stressful some times. Especially here, with military, academic and personal stresses pulling us in all different directions, we are at risk of losing sight of that what matters most. Even amidst the competing demands at the Academy, we must remember what is most important in our lives and make a point to prioritize that.
