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

All too often, students tend to base their decisions for college on assumptions. When I was a senior in high school in FL, if you didn't go to FSU, UF or Miami, people thought you "didn't get into a good school." The fact of the matter is that every college has their specific strengths and weaknesses in terms of undergraduate and graduate studies, and more likely than not, the student will probably change their major AT LEAST once. Judge a school based upon statistics and the rank of the school in the major the student is interested in - people go to the Georgia Tech to be an engineer (not an English major), just as students go to St. John's in Annapolis for philosophy. In the end, the school should best reflect what the student wants to achieve in life and not the one that parties or tailgates the most of game days.

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

Having no social life whatsoever except on the weekends. And even then, you have military and other requirements that can limit the time you enjoy on "liberty." If you can manage being on AIM, Facebook, MySpace and webcam from Sunday nights until the following Friday night, you might stand a chance; if not, then go to a regular school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is driven to serve their country and understand that there's more to college than getting wasted every night of the week. The academic rigors are dificult, as is having much of a social life here, but the benefits after graduation outweigh any "college" experiences. All of my friends back home told me I made a mistake coming here my freshman and sophomore years, but now that I'm about to graduate with no debt and going to be a Navy Pilot, it's hard for them to not be jealous and wish they were in my shoes.

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

Figure out what you want in life. Figure out what your strengths and weaknesses are and decide whether you want to play to your stengths or develop your weaknesses. Then search for schools that will help you to do what you want in life. And then narrow down your list by deciding which schools will get you there in a manner you agree with. From there, decide which school you will feel more at home with. If you follow this plan, you can't lose. Remember, no place is perfect, but some are better than others.

What's unique about your campus?

I am being better prepared to serve my country at the Naval Academy than I would be anywhere else.

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

It's a military academy so we are never allowed off campus during weekdays. The lack of freedom is a real damper on relationships.

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

Look for schools that have a good academic reputation overall. It's good to look for one that is known for a certain field but how many students change their mind once or many times? Schools that have many extra curricular activities will allow students to find something they enjoy to do outside of school even if it's just intramurals. Money shouldn't be the main concern because there are many ways to pay for school you just have to look. Most states will gives grants, especially for single parents. Scholarships are easy to come by too. The point is you have to go look for it because people will not approach you. One of the most importan things I found when choosing a college was actually visiting it and seeing the day to day activities of the students. As for making the most of your experience, work hard in class because it will pay off. Teachers will help you out. They love enthusiasm but again you have to ask for it. Don't forget to get away too. Go have fun and explore the city your college is in. You need to destress.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The freedom to do what you want to do, curfews, and money.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The Naval Academy is known for its excellent engineering majors and a top liberal arts classes. It also produces over 850 Navy and Marine Corps officers every year.

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

Allow the student to decide for themselves what they want. Parents should be supportive of decisions the student makes; yet, they should still guide them and assit when the student has tough questions as to where to attend. The student should not be pressured into attending a specific college or studying a specific major only to please their parents. It is ultimately the student trying to learn a set of skills in order to progress in their education and career.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who are unwilling to change, listen or taking orders. Academically challenged persons should think twice about applying

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

Parents need to guide their children without forcing them, encourage their children without pressuring them, and understand that their child will ultimately make this decision on his/her own. Instill good morals and virtues early to eleviate the worries of their child beginning a new chapter in life. Know their child will make mistakes, but let him/her know that they can perservere through anything if they have the right mindset. Be there for their children when needed, and little to no more. If he/she needs to talk, they will call; needs some cash, they will ask; needs advice, they will find you. Don't completely change his/her room, car, or possessions immediately after they leave. When he/she comes home, they need to know that it is still their home, even though, to them, it won't feel like it. Most of all, love your child and support him/her in whatever they choose, because at this point it is their life, not yours.

What's unique about your campus?

The Academy challenges each student unlike any school to help develope the future leaders of America. No other school can push each student to their personally limits morally, mentally, and physically.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A driven individual who can perservere through the hardest challenges, prioritise their time, and know that while tomorrow does not get easier, but they do get better. They should be physically fit, morally stable, and hard working with academics.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

At the end of going to my school you are guarenteed a job in the Military and will be successful no matter where it is you go! The bonds you make here are unbelievable, and it is an experience that allows you to be the best you can in every situation: Morally, mentally, and physically!!!

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

Visit the college that you want to attend because where you will be living will definately affect your years there. Every where is different, pick a school that fits your personality and pick it because it is where you want to be! You will do well if you hard charge and keep your head up!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Along with the Military life comes Military obligations that you would not necessairily run into at a civillian college.
