Parent-Plebe Weekend

The U.S. Military Academy hosted Plebe-Parent Weekend to provide the USMA class's families and special guests a unique opportunity to visit, understand and appreciate the varied aspects of West Point life for cadets.

Cadets, along with the support of specialist staff, plan the entire weekend for their guests, including events at the Parents Weekend Welcome Center, various briefings by academy leadership, various sporting events, a plebe review, a National Defense Service Medal (NDSM) ceremony, a dinner banquet, the class crest unveiling, a barracks closeout, and the release for spring break.

This particular weekend is an annually celebrated event that serves as a critical first step in the Fourth Class╩╝s leadership development. It provides the class with their first opportunity to serve in various leadership roles.
