Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most cadets are not satisfied with the nightlife, but the majority of them did not expect much of a nightlife scene, either. On post, there are limited opportunities for cadets to unwind. Upperclass cadets can go to the Firstie Club, and any cadet can go to Ike Hall to catch a movie or see a performance. As for dance clubs, they don't exist in Highland Falls. The bars are equally limited in their selection. Most cadets don't seem too interested in mingling with the locals, either. There is a little hope, though.

For cadets who desire nightlife, they have one of four options: Newburgh, New Paltz, Poughkeepsie, or New York City. And, of course, students can always visit other universities to see what normal college nightlife is like. But beyond that, there are a couple of small, hick bars just outside the gate. Besides that, there is nothing. Don't go to West Point for the nightlife. You will be sorely disappointed.
