Very beautiful grounds and buildings. It's full of history and perfect for a nice long walk. You will need an ID to be allowed in, so don't forget it!

Overall Rating:

Beautiful campus. I always love to visit and see the Midshipmen walking around. Will forever be proud of the men and women who dedicate themselves to serving our great nation.

Overall Rating:

Have been there several times. Wonderful place, and steeped in tradition. Every Midshipman is an over-achiever who WANTS to be there, rather than some spoiled kid who got their parents to pay their way through college, and sleeps through class. Physical fitness is just important as academics, and it shows. After that first (Plebe) year, every Mid is in the best shape of their lives and they do better in class because of it. As some say "it's the worst place to be, but the best place to be FROM". The demands on Mids are greater than anywhere, so It is certainly not a place to go to school if you can't do it bigger, better, faster, and harder than everyone else. Over 17,000 students apply each year, for roughly 1,100 spots on Induction Day. That means this place is pretty hard to get into, but the graduation rate is over 85% (whereas it's 59% in the rest of the country) AND these graduates will be protecting our nation in The Fleet for at least 5 years after graduation. Through Knowledge, Sea Power!

The United States Naval Academy is by far the most beautiful school I have ever visited. If you are planning on going, try to make it for a Noon Meal Formation held in Tecumsa Court just outside Bancroft Hall. Very neat. Also, lots of great items in he Gift Shop, so drop in if you have time! And as always, "Go Navy, Beat Army!"
