4 College Freshman

Athletics: Wide variety of sports to watch or participate in considering the size of the school

3 College Junior

Athletics: A good portion of the school works out, especially because cadets cannot leave campus. Yet, the gym is mediocre and too small.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: On a varsity level, our athletics have competitive teams but the student body does not care for the most part. If were not required to attend football games, one would probably see just a couple hundred cadets. Much of this can be attributed to a long established disconnect with core-squad (cadet-athletes) and normal cadets (non-athlete cadets). Additionally, since cadet's ability to leave campus during the week is restricted and military life is generally stressful, most cadets would rather spend the day out in the city or with family than go to a sports game.

Intramural sports are pretty big on campus because it gives cadets the opportunity to show off their own ability and get some built up stress worked out. We have a championship that is decided by the accumulation of points per intramural and by winning it cadets are given extra leave (that is a big deal).

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school is a military college that competes on a division 1 level. I would say in general it would be difficult to recruit students to a school that is more involved with teaching its students about leadership and discipline as opposed to pushing players to professional sporting leagues.

4 College Junior

Athletics: All cadets are required to attend home football games. As well as some basketball and baseball games.
