Checkpoints magazine is the Association of Graduates' signature communications piece. From its humble beginnings as a black and white news print in 1965 to the award-winning publication you are reading today, the magazine has evolved into a visual showcase of USAFA. Yet despite its evolutionary track across the decades, this publication still seeks the same objective that it did at the time of its inception: to tell the Academy and graduate stories.
Checkpoints is published in March, June, September, and December and is filled with pages of information about graduates, cadets and the Academy. It is the only magazine of its kind for the Academy.
The magazine is an award-winning publication, recognized by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education for excellence in college and university magazine publication.
