Cadets Get Creative to Complete Virtual SOSH Run
The West Point tradition of the Social Sciences or “SOSH” Run continued in a virtual environment on April 16. The SOSH Paper, which is the signature writing assignment in the required “Introduction to International Relations” course, is a rite of passage for cadets in their third year at USMA. Over the years, cadets have found creative, unusual and comedic ways to submit hard copies of their papers. In years past, the culminating event has been a parade of “panic-stricken” and costumed cadets dashing from the cadet area to Lincoln Hall to turn in their papers in time to meet the deadline. This semester, cadets aired live videos, posted videos and submitted pictures to Microsoft Teams from their homes as a way of continuing the SOSH Run tradition in the remote environment.
