Indoctrination



The USMMA Alumni Association and Foundation (AAF) encourages alumni, parents and friends in welcoming each and every class to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. We invite to you spend the day interacting with incoming Midshipmen and their family members. Indoctrination 2017 for the Class of 2021 takes place on Tuesday, June 27, 2017. We advise visitors to arrive at the Academy early as parking is extremely limited on campus.

Indoctrination Photos - The AAF staff photographs as much activity as possible during Indoctrination and shares these photos daily with the USMMA community. Please view our photo albums on our Facebook page.

Videos - The AAF staff produces videos during Indoctrination, showing the various activities of the Plebe Candidates. Please view our videos on our YouTube page.

Social Media - Please follow the AAF Facebook and Twitter pages for timely information on Indoctrination activities, news, events, and other important information.

50 & 25 Year Legacy Classes:
The USMMA Alumni Foundation established Legacy Classes to partner with the incoming class. In 2017, the Class of 2021 will partner with graduates from the Class of 1971 and 1996. The classes will also serve as Midshipmen ambassadors and lead the class on the field during their graduation in 2021. To get involved with your Legacy Class, contact lisa.donitz@alumni.usmma.edu. Legacy Class guidelines can be viewed here.
