What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure the environment is right for you. Yuou have to know that you will get along with people on campus and that you will be able to socially adapt. It is important to develop your social skills while in college to better prepare yourself for the real world. Also, make sure your general major is at the university. Many people go to college thinking they want to major in one thing and end up switching, if you are unsure of your major look for a college with a diverse set of options. Also, try to find a college with strong spirit and a motivation to "do." You will be motivated by the people around you; therefore, choose an environment conducive to the person that you want to be. And finally, choos ea college that will challenge you. Always try to grow and learn more in every situation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you want to be a military officer before coming here. Also, be ready to work and take in as much info as you possibly can. The Naval Academy is not for everyone, but your opportunities beyond this school are infinite. You will never have problems finding a job with a degree from here. And last but not least, the US taxpayer pays for it. In fact, you get paid to come here.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The rules and restrictions on going out into town during the week.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You get what you put into the system. If the system, your college of choice, will not be able to meet your abilities then go somewhere else. Do not go somewhere for the sake of having an easy four years of college. Go to college and work those four years in order to have a lifetime of rewards. There is something miserable at every college, find what is best miserable for you.

What's unique about your campus?

It is the premier institution to become a naval officer, which is what I want. Free education, guaranteed job placement after graduation and the oppurtunity to serve my country.

What kind of person should attend this school?

One who believes in serving the nation through military service and is not afraid of hard work.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents should not place any pressure on their children as they search for a college to apply to. Parents should also be supportive and help their children research and apply to different schools. Children should be open minded as they are searching for a school and should keep their strengths, weaknesses, and interests in mind. I believe one will recieve as much as they place into their college experience. Thus, students should strive for excellence in all areas of life (socially, academically, athletically, religously) in their college careers.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That I am a very well rounded student athlete.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

If you are willing to completely throw yourself at your goals and commit fully, the Naval Academy will challenge and reward you beyond measure.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit as many colleges as possible - reading pamphlets and web sites is not enough! If possible, schedule an overnight visit at your top choices, and talk to students in your prospective major. As far as the actual college experience, take risks and get involved, and try new activities- the worst that can happen is that you don't like something, and best case scenario you find something you're passionate about and make friends who share the sentiment.

What's unique about your campus?

Everyone currently here had to work extremely hard to get in, so the work ethic and desire to be here are very high. We go through a lot and share the common thread of desiring a career in military service, so that creates a really strong bond among students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If you aren't happy change schools. Have fun and take part in whatever social, extracurricular and/or sport activities you want to but always keep in mind why you are at the institution- to learn...and set yourself up for a job afterwards. Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something- never limit yourself. Set goals and achieve them. Do not rule out service to your country, whether it be in the military or otherwise. Often college students lose a sense of direction and purpose because colleges do not promote those things (they would rather that you wander lost and spend more money that you do not have to waste your time with them) but service to something greater than self will help you regain that.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The administration stomping out free time away from school and trying to take away extra curriculars, especially creative/artistic ones
