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!!!

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!

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

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

What one would expect of a military service academy with a focus on leadership development, but also on academics and political correctness.

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

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

This is the second college I have attended. Sometimes, I wonder if I made the right decision, if I even made the decision myself. Do not let your future be steered by the people around you. Listen not only to your heart, but also your hopes and expectations. Believe in the infinite possibilities, but understand the length of the roads you may need to take to get there. When you do get to college, try new things. Put yourself out there, meet people. Remember that, while you are there to cement your future, you are also there because you want to enjoy the present. Do not throw opportunities away, and make friends you want to keep. Be true to yourself always and never forget where you came from.

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

The administration does not take student opinion seriously. The group think mentality is sometimes crushing. The place is ruled by conservative, middle class, white males.

Go to the various schools while the student body is there and classes are going on. Be nosy and get a real feel for the place.

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

Random breathalyzers - if a person who may legally drink blows abouve 0.08 BAC they can get in trouble. This creates an unnecessary taboo and makes drinking all the more appealing because it is frowned upon. Therefore, persons over 21 start acting like immature underagers coming up with ways to avoid the breathalyzer.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The daily schedule was heavily regulated by the administration, wasting a good deal of time with waiting inbetween events. This prevented students from realizing ideal efficiency to their day's achievements; however, in retrospect, this circumstance held true to the mind-numbing schedules we face now employed.

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

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

The best advice I can offer to students is to pick the school where you feel you will excel the most. Don't pick it based on what you parents say or whether they're alumni or even whether you're friends will be attending the same one come fall semester. To be honest, whether or not you graduate depends solely on your accomplishments not those of your parents or your friends-just yours. Also, find the one that best fits your needs whether it may include financial assistance, specific career major routes such as pre-med or pre-law, and or even a specific sports team you'd like to play for. To parents, all I can ask of them is to be supportive of their young ones and support them in whatever they choose for "where there is a will there is a way."

What's unique about your campus?

The comraderie and the sense of brotherhood and sisterhood shared by not only those currently attending but by the alumni as well.

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

Given that it's a military institution, there are noticeably less opportunities to express one's artistic talents and ideas.

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

Most students change their minds several times about what they want to get from their time in college. Pick a program that matches the one thing that won't change: your personality. Once you're comfortable in your environment, you will begin to thrive. You will make better decisions about your education and career, and you will put yourself in the best possible position for success.

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

Preoccupation with diversity and public relations. Lack of focus on developing students into officers.

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

Opportunity to travel, see things, and meet people that I would never have been able to do anywhere else.

Making the most of the college experience is easy. Make friends and do as many things as you can on your parents money. It's the last time in your life that you have very little responsbility and your parents will cover the tab. As far as finding the right college is concerned, figure out who you like to be around (athletes, hippies, stoners) and walk around the campus/look at pictures of the students. If you can see yourself in the pictures or walking amongst the student body than its the place for you. Everyone will be able to find their own click once on campus.

Understanding the growth process associated with the undergraduate expierience is the essential aspect that parents must stress to the students. THe Student in turn, must be honest with themselves when evaluating their expectations for their college expierience. Together, the parent and the student have to understand that they will never see eye to eye on the issues they find most important to themselves. The parents, however, must appreciate that this is the first step in the student's maturation to adulthood.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Driven, goal oriented people who thrive under structure. Desire to serve your country is most important.
