The United States Naval Academy is a one of a kind opportunity. It provides a young adult with a top notch education, key leadership skills that translate into the civilian sector, and character building experiences.

The Academy as a whole makes you a better person. You're surrounded by like minded patriots who hold each other to a higher standard. This translates into later life by ensuring you have the tools to be successful and great life long friends you can rely on.

It was a dream of mine to come to the Academy and above is what I was told it was going to be. Now that I am living my dream I can say that all of the rumors are true and if someone has any doubt about attending the United States Naval Academy I say apply and never look back.

My experience here at the Naval Academy has been amazing. I am getting a great education here in Information Technology. There are also an endless amount of opportunities in order to help the community, academy, or yourself. You can travel the world at the expense of the Navy during the summers for training or personal leave. Truly is a great institution to attend and graduate from. Also the alumni here are fantastic. Graduating here will set someone up for life if they choose to get out of the Navy and go back to being a civilian.
The United States Naval Academy is one of the premier leadership institutions in the world. This place is definitely one of the most challenging institutions in the nation and the world. Drawing interest from all over, the Naval Academy does a superb job at gathering the greatest minds to serve as the next generation of leaders for the Navy and the United States. Challenging all Midshipmen mentally, morally, and physically, the Naval Academy ensures that its graduates are men and women of character who embody the ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty, and are ready to face any problem they may be confronted with.
