Cow Affirmation CeremonyWest Point Cow Affirmation

During this momentous occasion which occurs the evening prior to the first day of classes, the Affiliation Class presents the Cow Class with a joint Class Coin symbolizing the commitment of both to the Profession of Arms.  During the ceremony an especially noteworthy member of the Affiliation Class addresses the Cow Class in Robinson Auditorium right before the Commandant administers the Affirmation Oath.  Usually,  six to eight members of the Affiliation Class and their spouses witness this event.
