West Point welcomes future cadets on R-day PDF Print E-mail
WEST POINT, N.Y. (June 30, 2015) -- In 2014, close to 21 million students enrolled in the more than 5,000 undergraduate colleges and universities in the United States.

Of that, only 4,591 attend a renowned school overlooking the Hudson River in upstate New York. 

A school so prestigious that Forbes magazine voted it the 23rd top school in the country.

A school so acclaimed that then general of the Army, Omar Bradley, in his 1978 Founder's Day speech said, "For 176 years the Long Gray Line has met the needs of our changing society while remaining an impregnable bastion of those ideals upon which our country was founded."

That school is the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Every year, typically on the last Monday in June, about 1,300 future members of the corps of cadets gather at Thayer Hall under the guarded eye of the superintendent, or SUP, USMA faculty, and a company of officers and noncommissioned officers from the Army Reserve's 104th Training Division (LT). 
  
That Monday is when future cadets arriving at West Point are given uniforms, buzz haircuts, and their initial taste of the Army.
