    Obviously, there's pros and cons to attending a military academy. Pros - the greatest friends for a lifetime, set up for success after graduation, promised career after graduation, the best physical shape you'll probably ever be in your life, and the opportunity of serving your country. Cons - restricted free time (due to academics, rules of the campus, and physical training), limited time with family, long hours of studying, and the rigorous curriculum.

    The friendships will last a lifetime. Remember that this is not a normal college. You will have little to no social life, but the rewards are worth it if you go with no strings attached (girlfriends/family drama). If you get out of the freshman mindset after recognition, and do not lose who you are in the place it is not that bad.

    The location of the base/campus is prime for many different vacation and fun tours that include biking, hiking, and river rafting in the summer, while skiing and snow activities in the winter. You get your four seasons in Colorado Springs. Knowing that, take into account all the training you will be doing here for the military. While there are fun activities you can do on your off time, be mindful of the different climates if you are not used to them. Otherwise, it will be definitely worth it coming to school here.

    I have a friend who lives nearby the Academy. She says that the cadets seem to enjoy their experiences. As for surroundings, pictures of the area show that this is one of the most beautiful areas of America.
