Most college students are off working or having fun over the summer. At the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, 1,191 members of the plebe (freshman) class are on campus, training.
They’re at Plebe Summer Training, learning military basics, following directions and making formations. The USNA Class of 2018 comes from all 50 states, every U.S. territory and 12 partner nations. Their average SAT scores are 1340 — the highest of any USNA class.
You can see the Formal Plebe parade a couple days this summer. The first parade is July 18 at 9:30am on Worden Field at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. The second parade is Friday, July 25 at 9:30am.
