A shy, introverted, and hesitant person should not attend this school.

Service before self. Peer leadership stressed heavily and responsibilities are given to allow students practice it. Real-world military training during the summer.

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

Make decisions about what aspects of a college are important to you, and then put together your "short list" of compatible schools with the help of counsellors and parents. Make sure to choose include both your "dream" school and a "safe" backup or two so your options are kept open. Visit these schools early, and when possible consider participating in a summer event at one of your favorite schools so you have a chance to really immerse yourself in a bit of its culture before you make the big choice. Once you have accepted a college offer, whole-heartedly join the community and make an conserted effort to to do your best while maintaining a balanced lifestyle including service through campus organizations and academics -- many great friendships will surely follow if you work hard and keep an open mind and heart.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I think I knew as much as one reasonably could without experiencing the lifestyle in person.

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

On making the most of your college experience, I would have to say you get out of college what you put into it. For example, I go to the United States Naval Academy, in Annapolis, Maryland , and it is quite tough. However, if you stick with it, you CAN succeed. You simply need to find the resources, teachers, and friends avaliable and use them. I am a scholar-athlete and All-American winner, and I've been able to balance it all. Time management and balance is key for a healthy, happy college experience, wherever you choose to go. Good luck!!!

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

You want to attend a good school that will propell you into a sparkling future, but you also want to have fun. It's your time to enjoy freedoms and experience life on your own.

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

I can do things here that no one else can ever hope to do. Military gets lots of benefits. There are endless possibilities of careers upon graduation.

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

Applicant weekends, where an interested high school student may shadow a student around for a day of classes and even part of the weekend, is very helpful in guaging whether the school of interest is a good fit. As far as making the most of a college experience, get involved. Schools, especially the Naval Academy, offer so many unique, once in a lifetime opportunities and usually at little to no cost.

What's unique about your campus?

Every midshipman at the Naval Academy is focused, patriotic, and for the most part friendly. The poeple I have met here a seperate breed, unlike any I have seen.

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

I will never know what it is like to go to a normal school and feel that I may lack some experiences necessary to be completely successful in my life after the Navy.

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

The United States Naval Academy is a military academy who's sole purpose is to develop its students into Naval and Marine Corp Officers. It is not your normal college experience by any way shape or form. There are 3 daily formations, and you will be assigned a company of about 160 people who will become your new family. You will eat meals together, and spend most of your time together throughout your four years here. Also, upon graduation you will be commissioned as an officer in the United States Navy or Marine corp with a minimal five year committment.

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

The best thing to do to make the most of your college experience is to pick a school that works best for you. Don't choose a school because of its reputation, or it's sports teams, or how much money they will give you. All of these are important factors, but in the end, you have to find a place that suits your needs, where you can be happy, and succeed. In the end, it doesn't matter how great your school is or how much they are paying you. If you are not happy there, none of it matters. Once you have found the school that woks for you, get involved. Find an activity that you enjoy and join a club or a sport. Clubs give you an automatic group of people who are interested in the same things as you, and it is easier to make friends. ALso, make sure you get your work done, but don't forget to have fun. Take a lot of pictures and enjoy every minute, because it only lasts 4 short years.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who attends this school needs to be very committed. You have to keep in mind your goals of being an officer, and remember the end goal or else it will be very hard to get through. This school as both physically and mentally challenging, and you have to be willing to put in work to go here.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I think that the most frustrating thing about my school is it's hours of operation and the number of manditory events students must attend. I also don't like how the school is based on a ranking system. This makes some students feel they have to be the best, therefore turn in people for doing harmless things, just to make themselves look better.

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

Parents: Get kids done essays and whatnot early, but give them time to develop those things themselves so they mean something to them. For college visits, back off Students: Visit as much as possible, and try to stay as long and as involved as possible

What kind of person should attend this school?

Motivated, intelligent, FIT, interested in building a career anywhere (but at least a few years serving our nation first), confident, honest

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

Tough academic and physical mission. How much work we put into everyday (our schedules) and the extra stuff we do for military training that sounds badass.
