About Social Activities
Throughout the year, students can participate in a wide variety of social activities, from military socials to various cultural and athletic events. These provide an opportunity for interaction between students of other military services and nationalities.
Students can also participate in a wide variety of local community activities, combining recreation with social responsibility.
Many take an active part in holiday food and gift drives; some participate as volunteers for Scout troops, youth sports teams, women’s shelters and soup kitchens; others tutor local elementary, middle, and high school students.
Group athletics for students include intramural sports run through the base gym, the President’s Cup Competition, and an Army-Navy Flag Football game.
The Naval Station gym is a full-service facility providing cardio and weightlifting equipment, basketball and racquetball courts, a pool, locker rooms, and saunas. It also has professional athletic trainers on staff and available to assist in developing a conditioning program.
The resident student organization supports academic, athletic, and social activities. An executive committee appoints members to serve as chairs of the student academic and athletic committees, as well as social committees if the class desires. Each seminar has an appointed leader, who organizes student physical fitness, business, academic, activity, and athletic functions.
