1 College Senior

Computers: They provide the cheapest computers they can find and charge everyone over $2000 for them. It's a total rip off. I purchased my own significantly better computer for less than half the price.

4 College Senior

Academics: All of the teachers know their stuff and are super helpful! Sometimes they aren't the best at getting their points across, but they're all brilliant.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: You must live on campus. There is no off campus option.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: The menu is repetitive and the food is not all that great.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: It's ok, but you have to drive a good distance to get there. There's a better nightlife in Denver than in Colorado Springs.

2 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There is some prejudice/sexism from both sides. There are a lot of stereotypes that are taken too far. Most people also have a pretty severe ego. There is a stigma against pursuing a relationship with another cadet.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: There is essentially zero drug use on campus. There are some heavy drinkers, but no one really abuses alcohol to a severe extent.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's free and it is fairly well maintained. The half century old buildings show their age in places, but have been renovated recently.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security is not a problem. It is a little overkill at times, but that should be expected at a military academy. The health services (cadet clinic, dental clinic) are an embarrassment at best. Getting same day service is essentially impossible.

4 College Senior

Academics: The core course load is a little overkill, but the curriculum is great and the teachers know their stuff

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off campus housing allowed, except for the last few weeks of senior year.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Not much political diversity, but everything else is pretty good.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's pretty much everything you could ask for within a few miles of campus. Nothing's walk-able, unfortunately, but the costs are super cheap and food is great.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The department is really supportive and I have plenty of access to my adviser.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's a military service academy, so of course it's going to be strict. Not hellish, but very strict.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life per say, but we have people who make their own greek life. It's not a good replacement.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarship pays for everything-- what else can I say?

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Most nightlife happens off campus and it's pretty hard for frosh/sophs to get transportation. Nothing underage worth mentioning.

3 College Junior

Parking: You park in a designated lot only.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Best education.

Best experience.

Best Service Academy!

4 College Junior

Athletics: Everybody participates in some form of athletics. Facilities are great.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Service Academy with random drug tests.

5 College Junior

Academics: Engineering major at a primarily engineering school.

5 College Junior

Academics: Great knowledgeable profs/military instructors that seem sincerely interested in our success.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Service Academy. Cadets are "Appointed" from every state and many foreign countries.
