Your Stay in Newport
The in-residence phase of your Senior Enlisted Academy experience will bring you to our historic Newport campus. During your three weeks with us, you’ll not only build your leadership skills, but you’ll also become part of a close-knit community. Soon after you arrive at SEA, you’ll attend a Welcome Aboard social reception where you can can get acquainted with your classmates and staff and faculty members.

Here’s an overview of some of the most pertinent details:
Tomich Hall is SEA’s primary academic building. Inside you’ll find various group rooms, as well as Leadership Hall, which is used for capstone presentations, briefs, and other official functions. Tomich Hall also features a small library with computers, printers, and plenty of military heritage books available for check-out. The building also features two lounges, one of which offers a small fiction library.
During your SEA residency, you’ll participate in physical fitness training (PT) about twice per week. Sessions could include CrossFit, circuit training, yoga, spin class, and team sports. To build some healthy camaraderie between SEA groups, one of your PT sessions may include a director’s cup competition.
All group classrooms in Tomich Hall are equipped with a refrigerator, water dispenser, microwave, and Keurig coffee machines (we suggest bringing your own K-cups).
