“Beast was rigorous and challenging, both mentally and physically,” Horgan noted. “However, the excellent military training that I received was invaluable and unmatched.”
Though students don’t declare majors at West Point until the fall of their sophomore year, Horgan has a packed schedule this semester taking seven classes, along with daily duties as a cadet.
“The biggest adjustment for me so far has been learning how to manage my time effectively and maximizing efficiency in my daily endeavors,” said Horgan, who also made college visits to Princeton and Harvard.
“West Point overwhelms cadets with many different tasks and duties that must get accomplished in a limited amount of time. As a result, learning how to adjust to the West Point culture has been my biggest challenge.”
