What Students Are Saying

4.28 Average Rating
The United States Military Academy at West Point is a great place to be if you like to have a structured and regimented way of life. You will be kept busy and will value the very little truly free time you get, but the friends you make here will last a lifetime and the opportunities available to you (free semester study abroad, etc.) are not to be found anywhere else.
Andrew from Columbus, GA
The United States Military Academy at West Point is a very prestigious institution in which one can discover what he or she is truly made of in the academic, military, and physical fields. Every student graduates a leader of character and earns the privilege of leading men and women in the U.S. Army. The ever expanding fraternity of the 'Long Grey Line' reminds the student that he or she is not alone in their drive to become an officer in the U.S. Army.
