Mids are extremely busy. We have "mandatory fun" where we are required to go to certain sporting events or pep rallies during school nights when we have 4 hours of homework. Student activities are more for the benefit of the public than for the enjoyment of midshipmen.

Guys & Girls:
Mids are good, hardworking people. The Type-A personality can get old though.

The Naval Academy does not have tuition, you get the pleasure of a free education and the honor of serving your country.

There is one dorm and one dorm only: Bancroft Hall. All 4,200 something midshipmen live in the "dorm." The rooms range from 2-man rooms to 4-man rooms, with one exceptional 5-man that I've heard of. All are built the same and you are separated by your company. Bathrooms are regular I guess. The farthest you'll have to walk from Bancroft to class is about a 10 minute walk

DTA, what people here call Downtown Annapolis, has a lot of food options from small burger/sandwich shops to places like Ruth's Chris. There's a good amount of local ice cream shops too. Also can't forget about the seafood, which is what Annapolis is known for. If you have the money then the Charthouse is one of the best places around

All students are required to live on campus. Rooms are small and toilets are shared with everyone on your floor.
College Senior 2013-09-08T19:49:12Z
All students are issued a computer when they arrive at the school, so computer access is not usually a problem. Internet speed is terrible though.

The Naval Academy is incredibly strict. Obviously, it's a military institution, so it would be.
College Senior 2013-09-08T19:47:05Z
The United States Naval Academy provides ample opportunity to receive help from instructors. I have never been in a class that was tough by a professor's assistant. My freshman calculus 1 course was taught by a math Ph.d. Professors are often available for extra instruction and are helpful for the most part. Class sizes are also generally small.

Living on campus is the only option at the Naval Academy. You live on the same floor of a specific wing every single year so you don't really know any different. However, all meals are provided, trash is taken out every morning and laundry is done once a week so the cost of living is nonexistent.

It is one of the best schools in the country, hands down. Every single Midshipman receives a BS and the required courses for every student range from 2 semesters of Chemistry, 2 semesters of Physics, Thermo, Electrical Engineering, Leadership & Ethics courses...etc.
College Sophomore 2013-08-30T14:02:29Z
Although Economics is not an engineering major (what the school is known for) it is extremely exciting and practical.

Guys & Girls:
80-85% of the guys here are total studs. Athletic, patriotic, motivated, good looking, smart, genuine and hardworking individuals. As with any school you get the one's that slip through the cracks, but the overwhelming majority are unbelievably good guys. The girls on the other hand are overwhelmingly average in all categories except "smart", with few exceptions.

Everyone has to play a sport, so all of the facilities are top notch.

There are many bars and restaurants directly outside the campus (5min walk tops). The costs vary, student discounts also vary, variety is high, and the best place to check out would be The Federal House.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-03T17:37:14Z
Student involvement is high, team performance is average, fan support is average, school spirit is extremely high, athletic facilities are well above average. I give a B+ because the atmosphere of athletics is like any other college but the performance of most the athletics is average.

There isn't a Greek life. It's an inter-meshed life here. You learn to tolerate and get along with people from different walks of life or you become "that guy".
College Sophomore 2013-02-12T11:32:39Z
Guys & Girls:
Everyone is dressed the same, I mean we wear uniforms here. But there are alot more guys than girls. And some of the people here can be socially awkward. But once you find the right ECA to be apart of, it can become a family to you here.

You need a car to get around annapolis, but considering you cant own a car till you senior year, its tough to get around.
College Senior 2012-10-25T13:31:59Z
The food is miserable, I eat peanut butter and jelly everyday

You cannot do anything because you signed your life to navy

The guys have no hair and the girls look like the guys

The Naval Academy does not have separate fraternities or sororities, but rather it is one giant frat house. Everyone is a shipmate.
College Junior 2012-10-09T03:14:31Z
During the academic year, the food is not completely horrible but also not extremely delicious. There are days when the food is stale and days when the food is high quality. The academy is on a 6 week rotation so every 6 weeks you eat the same thing. It can get old after a few years at the academy. The food is much better during the summer.
Luckily, the academy has two restaurants on campus that serve tastier food for those in the brigade that are willing to pay for it rather than eating in the free cafeteria.
College Junior 2012-10-09T03:11:16Z
There is no Off-Campus Housing. Everyone lives in the same building.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
