Virtual West Point Admissions Briefing May 12th at 7:00 PM

 


Dear All,


 The New Jersey West Point Field Force is hosting a United States Military Academy virtual meeting for rising freshman, sophomores, and juniors.  The virtual briefing is scheduled on May 12th at 7:00 PM. 


We are a volunteer organization assisting students in their application process to West Point including providing relevant information regarding the many opportunities at West Point.  In the past, our members have met with your staff and students to update them on the Academy and admissions process. 

We are hoping your staff will participate by attending and by spreading the word to your students by posting the attached PDF.  


To many educators, West Point is often seen as off limits to potential Candidates.  Yes, the competition is keen but there are ways to help our young people in finding the path that best suits them, including a career as a leader in today’s Army.  We are including a link to an admissions blog which answers many questions as well as PDF document which covers important facts about West Point.  Some of the items we cover are:

·      Admission’s Blog.  The admissions blog will answer many of your questions and give you an idea what graduates will be doing after graduation.  We strongly recommend you check out the blog. 

    • The Journey Continues - stories of recent graduates 3 to 4 years from graduation and what they have been doing. This is in the process of being finalized.  All branches will be covered.
    • AP Credits and What they mean at West Point
    • Descriptions of each year at the Academy
    • The Scholars Program - Post Graduate Scholarships
    • The Center for Enhanced Performance
    • Info on the CFA, candidate fitness assessment
    • The Honor Code
    • Things to know about choosing a major
    • SLE – the Summer Leadership Experience

§  https://www.blog.westpointadmissions.com

 

·      The large number of humanities and social science majors at West Point.  It is more than an engineering school.

·      The CORE curriculum which includes composition, literature, 2 semesters of a foreign language, US Government and History, Economics, Mathematics, Cyber and Science.

·      All-expense paid internships like working at the National Security Council in Washington, visiting London to watch Shakespeare’s plays, going to Oxford to study philosophy, working at RAND Corp, Council of Economic Advisors, Goldman Sacks, A T Kearney, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, State Department, Manhattan DA’s Office, and the World Bank.

·      $27 million allocated for cadet research supported by 26 research centers.

·      The West Point Graduate Scholarship Program which prepares cadets to compete for fourteen prestigious scholarships including the Rhodes, Marshall, and Fulbright programs.  Last year West Point had 40 graduates win these scholarships. 

·      The four pillars of the CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT program not available at any other college.  Character, Academic, Physical and Military.  At West Point, Cadets will learn and incorporate the ideals of loyalty, respect, integrity, courage, and honor in their daily life.  They will learn failure can make them stronger.  Going outside their comfort zone helps them grow.  Character is relevant.  Grit makes the difference in success in life.  Finally, the concept of ‘never, ever quit’ becomes part of their DNA

·      Participation in one of the 130 Cadet Clubs including Academic, Sports, Hobby, Military, Religious and Support Clubs.

·      Full four-year tuition ROTC scholarships available at over 1100 colleges and universities. 

Please take the time to review these materials.  We are here to help the students. 

We look forward to working with your students and staff.

PennState Learning Edge Academic Program (LEAP)

 



LEAP PROGRAM AT UNIVERSITY PARK

The Learning Edge Academic Program (LEAP) is for incoming first-year students accepted to the University Park campus. The program, which runs during Summer Session II, combines small, cohort-based courses with out-of-class programming and peer-mentoring to help students successfully transition to Penn State.

Each student enrolls in two linked courses that make up a LEAP Pride and each pride is assigned an upper-class mentor who plans programming and helps support LEAP students throughout the summer program.

BENEFITS OF LEAP

  • Small, linked classes that help you get to know faculty members
  • Peer mentoring
  • LEAP housing
  • Out-of-class programming

LEAP TERMS

LEAP Pride: The two courses you enroll in are linked together to form a LEAP Pride. Each student selects one LEAP Pride by enrolling in the two classes that are listed for the pride. Each pride will have no more than 24 students.

LEAP Mentor: A LEAP Mentor is an upper-class student who serves as the mentor to a LEAP Pride. The mentor plans social and academic programming for their pride throughout the summer. This programming includes activities to help the students get to know each other, learn about campus resources, and the State College community. Mentors also plan study sessions and other academic activities for their LEAP Pride.

General Education: Most LEAP courses help students fulfill General Education requirements. General Education courses comprise approximately one-third of the courses students will take for their Penn State degree. For more information about the General Education curriculum visit the Office for General Education website.

LEAP COST

There is no additional cost for LEAP. Enrolled students pay the same tuition, fees, and room and board costs as any other summer student.

The LEAP program was a bridge that helped me easily transition from high school into college without feeling so overwhelmed.
