What Does It Take To Succeed at the Academy?

A Cadet’s life in the Air Force Academy is as rewarding as it is difficult.   It takes dedication, sacrifice, strong self-discipline and excellent time-management skills. However, the rewards include lifetime friendships, honor, personal development, pride and a career as an officer in the world’s most proficient air, space and cyberspace force. On Friday, March 31 at 9:00 am a representative from the Air Force Academy will share what it takes to succeed at the Academy. Students can sign up in the Counseling Center.
