“Makes you proud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I toured the grounds with my five children, ranging in age from 12-26. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We took the tour (fee) and our tour guide was wonderful! We learned so much and saw so much. Because we were there when the plebes had just arrived, we got a first hand view of how tough these young men and women were working to get in shape and be ready for the challenges ahead of them. The tour covered a mirade of interests from architecture to history to how the students live, etc. Very informative. Hint - bathrooms were in one place only - before you begin the tour. The tour is about an hour of walking, but it is level with steps only into the dorms (which is the most beautiful dorm I've ever seen!)

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We went on a tour guided by a graduate and Director of Admissions. He was engaging, very humble, full of information one would not get by just walking around on their own. It was excellent, a beautiful campus and emotional experience to see where our youth are being educated to serve our country.
