2023 Respect & Inclusion Summer Experience (RISE)

Description: You and your family (incoming swab + 2 guests) are cordially invited to the Respect & Inclusion Summer Experience (RISE), a fun orientation and social gathering for new cadets!  RISE takes place from June 23 - 25th at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT

RISE helps new cadets make a gradual transition from civilian to military life. Please consider attending if you:

- Have not visited the Academy before
- Are a citizen of another country, or have lived most of your life outside the U.S.
- Belong to a group historically underrepresented at the Academy

In addition, RISE also provides the opportunity to socialize with future classmates and their families. The benefits of attending RISE include:
- Developing your support network
- Team-building exercises to get to know each other better
- Meeting other parents and learning about the benefits of membership in the Parents Association
- Learning to get around the campus and New London
