Administration: It's a military academy - it requires a certain level of strictness.

Scholarships: Cadet do not directly receive financial aid. Each has a full ride - although we pay for uniforms and food.

Campus Food: Mitchell Hall is a full service cafeteria. There is no meal plan because all cadets pay for the food each month out of our pay. Great place to eat with friends and squad-mates.

Majors: There's no process to get into a program. You just do it.

Majors: I enjoy it because the workload is not as bad, the curriculum is easy to understand and study, and the staff are all super friendly, helpful and kind.

Diversity: It's a pretty respectful area, everyone is similar but there are some differences. Definitely a lot of ethnic and racial diversity as well as religious beliefs.

Academics: My major gives me a chance to work scientifically with improving leadership functionality through the study of Behavioral Sciences. It's workload isn't that bad either. I actually have some form of a life, and I'm glad. The faculty with the Behavioral Science program are very helpful to make your life easier.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most of the professors are really great. The class registration is super easy through the academic advisers, the workload is moderate (depending on class), there are tons of extra study options like Extra Instruction or the Quantitative Learning Center, and there's only a few popular study areas like the couch section of the library. However, the curriculum is god awful. Cadets suffer through mandatory core classes that they don't want to take. Their GPA takes a hit from chemistry or physics, and risks them not earning a decent 3.0 for the semester. They need to seriously look into changing their curriculum.

Campus Quality: Only bad thing is it needs a huge modernization boost. Classrooms are iffy, barely any computer labs except at the library. The dining hall could use a boost in popularity because their food is very iffy sometimes. The performing arts and attractions at Arnold Hall aren't very interesting. They should try booking popular groups/people to come and showcase for the cadets.

Local Area: Only downside is it's an hour away from major sports and some recreations like concerts. Everything else is great.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The dudes are kinda iffy; you're either attractive or not, probably a 50/50, you're either athletic or not, more like a 75/25, you're smart or dumb, more like 45/55, and then finally they're either caring or douche bags (60/40).

The girls are generally all athletic and smart. There are a few girls who are super bitchy, and some of the girls aren't that attractive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences have all been the feats I've been able to accomplish. I completed Basic Cadet Training and completed Recognition; two extremely arduous challenges I would have never imagined myself completing. They are probably THE hardest things I'll ever do, and I'd do them again because of the memories and bonds made through them. This school builds you into the best person you can be, as long as you put in the hard work.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are great. Some of the teachers kind of stink, so everyone normally knows which teachers are better or not and you'll know when you get them if you got lucky or didn't. The quality of the courses isn't bad, but could be better. Especially the Chemistry Department; they're pretty bad. Most of the students near fail each semester and they still don't change the curriculum. It's a problem. There are core courses that are needed, but after that they have a nice selection. The class sizes are also really small. At most, probably around 30.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You automatically have a job after you graduate through the United States Air Force. You can stay in for awhile, make a career out of it, etc. You can even cross commission to another branch if you want.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's barely any crime ever noticed; maybe some theft or minor drug use. There's only been one time in the past few years where one got arrested for possessing huge amounts of drugs. Personal Safety is huge here due to consistent daily accountability checks. On a scale from 1-10, I'd be agreeable with a solid 8.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life at USAFA. Zero percent.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Intramurals are practically mandatory; there are only a few excuses one can have to missing them. Sports also play a huge roll, especially due to the huge level of competition cadets have. That causes high amounts of fan support and school spirit to follow.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You're not allowed to live off-campus. It's actually a Cadet Sight Picture violation to own or live in property off-base, until graduation has happened.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Many different options to choose from; Ted's Montana Grill, Caspian Cafe, Chick-fil-a, Taco Bell, Red Robin, Chipotle, Qdoba, The Famous, The Ritz, etc. Lots of choices and diversity around the area.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It's an average feeling about the administrations. There are times where the students get zero chances to have a social life, even on the weekends. It all depends on if the cadet wing has training that weekend. Plus, if you aren't on top of your academics it's easy to fall behind and spend a whole weekend writing papers and studying for GR's.
