On May 21, 2021, eight midshipmen culminated their college NROTC training with a commission in the US Navy or the US Marine Corps. The ceremony originally scheduled to be held at the Southern Yacht Club on the New Orleans Lakefront was moved to the Navy Building on the Tulane University Campus, due to weather related issues. Following all COVID precautions, the men and women took the oath of office and embarked upon their new careers. Three graduates entered the Marine Corps and five graduates went into the Navy. Two Naval ensigns are destined to be surface warfare officers, two are entering the aviation community, and one is going to be a submariner. The Commissioning Ceremony was a momentous event in their lives.
