    You live in the beautiful Colorado Springs. There are countless amounts of wonderful eats and you are surrounded by the beauty of nature in it's most real sense. Go out and enjoy the beautiful scenery and mountains. Denver is only forty minutes away if you enjoy the city life, just remember you are at a military academy, not too much fun can truly be had, if you are the type who needs trouble to get that sort of sensation. Learn how to have fun in a way that doesn't get you, or anyone else for that matter, in trouble!

    As a freshmen, you can borrow a car and go to the city for fun. There isn't anything too different that normal big city attractions. You have to be in uniform whenever you leave base, so you can't do anything crazy. Movies, food, bowling, and skiing is all that I have really done.

    There is a lot to do but, your first year you will be very limited. Do not let that get to you. Understand that you are apart of something bigger than your self and you have signed the agreement that when the time comes you will give the ultimate gift, your life.

    There are a ton of clubs, Intercollegiate Sports, Intramurals, and random get-togethers to choose from. If you are bored, you are TRYING to be bored.

    Like most modern colleges, there are tons of clubs and teams to join. Since the Academy is located in Colorado, the most popular club is the Ski Club. A relatively small membership fee provides buses most weekends during the winter to ski resorts, as well as a discount on ski passes and select equipment. The bustling city of Colorado Springs is located just south of the Academy, and full of activities to do. From the classics of restaurants and movie theaters to less traditional parks for mountain biking, there is always something to do.

    The weekends usually coincide with an exodus from the Academy to Colorado Springs, which is but a couple miles away from the Cadet Area. The Springs has all the amenities of a mid-size city, and is a great place to enjoy oneself. Skiing and outdoorsy stuff is also abundant in the area. For those times when you can't get away from the hill (there will be plenty of that), there are a variety of inane things that cadets do to pass the time that simply have to be experienced. They are fun, although you wouldn't think so if I described them here.

    When you have free time there is a lot for you to do. You can go hiking up in the mountains, go out to eat or go to the movies in the city, and during the winter you can take the weekend off and go skiing at some of the best ski resorts.

    There is a lot to do on base if you like the outdoors. We did a lot of grilling and BBQ. You can find plenty to do in the Colorado Springs area.
