College Senior

Nightlife: there is no party scene at USNA, except just the bond between shipmates at any and all events.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: its a zero tolerance policy and students obey it.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Obviously, we all live on campus so close to classes. Our dorm has a post office, a barber shop, a ding hall that seat 5,000 and a few restaurants, it is cleaned fro us by a cleaning service, our laundry is collected, washed and dry cleaned and delivered to us, we even have someone making sure we are safe and accounted for! The only drawback is that becasue it is built of stone, cell phone reception could be better!

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a tremendous diversity among students, and yet we are all being conformed to the same core values and ideals. I have friends from every economic background and racial/ethnic background.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Mids are extremely busy. We have "mandatory fun" where we are required to go to certain sporting events or pep rallies during school nights when we have 4 hours of homework. Student activities are more for the benefit of the public than for the enjoyment of midshipmen.

Guys & Girls: Mids are good, hardworking people. The Type-A personality can get old though.

Scholarships: The Naval Academy does not have tuition, you get the pleasure of a free education and the honor of serving your country.

Campus Housing: There is one dorm and one dorm only: Bancroft Hall. All 4,200 something midshipmen live in the "dorm." The rooms range from 2-man rooms to 4-man rooms, with one exceptional 5-man that I've heard of. All are built the same and you are separated by your company. Bathrooms are regular I guess. The farthest you'll have to walk from Bancroft to class is about a 10 minute walk

Off-Campus Dining: DTA, what people here call Downtown Annapolis, has a lot of food options from small burger/sandwich shops to places like Ruth's Chris. There's a good amount of local ice cream shops too. Also can't forget about the seafood, which is what Annapolis is known for. If you have the money then the Charthouse is one of the best places around

Computers: All students are issued a computer when they arrive at the school, so computer access is not usually a problem. Internet speed is terrible though.

Campus Strictness: The Naval Academy is incredibly strict. Obviously, it's a military institution, so it would be.

Academics: The United States Naval Academy provides ample opportunity to receive help from instructors. I have never been in a class that was tough by a professor's assistant. My freshman calculus 1 course was taught by a math Ph.d. Professors are often available for extra instruction and are helpful for the most part. Class sizes are also generally small.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is the only option at the Naval Academy. You live on the same floor of a specific wing every single year so you don't really know any different. However, all meals are provided, trash is taken out every morning and laundry is done once a week so the cost of living is nonexistent.

Academics: It is one of the best schools in the country, hands down. Every single Midshipman receives a BS and the required courses for every student range from 2 semesters of Chemistry, 2 semesters of Physics, Thermo, Electrical Engineering, Leadership & Ethics courses...etc.

Academics: Although Economics is not an engineering major (what the school is known for) it is extremely exciting and practical.

Guys & Girls: 80-85% of the guys here are total studs. Athletic, patriotic, motivated, good looking, smart, genuine and hardworking individuals. As with any school you get the one's that slip through the cracks, but the overwhelming majority are unbelievably good guys. The girls on the other hand are overwhelmingly average in all categories except "smart", with few exceptions.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many bars and restaurants directly outside the campus (5min walk tops). The costs vary, student discounts also vary, variety is high, and the best place to check out would be The Federal House.

Athletics: Student involvement is high, team performance is average, fan support is average, school spirit is extremely high, athletic facilities are well above average. I give a B+ because the atmosphere of athletics is like any other college but the performance of most the athletics is average.

Greek Life: There isn't a Greek life. It's an inter-meshed life here. You learn to tolerate and get along with people from different walks of life or you become "that guy".

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is dressed the same, I mean we wear uniforms here. But there are alot more guys than girls. And some of the people here can be socially awkward. But once you find the right ECA to be apart of, it can become a family to you here.
