Big School Education, Small School Feel

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Steven Roth I’m standing the watch right now known as “Admiral’s Yeomen.” Basically when your company has duty, one 3/c cadet volunteers to answer the Admiral’s phones after his usual secretary leaves. It may not seem like a big deal, but you have to wonder how many other college students get to have face time with the president of their college. The same thing goes for the classroom. I haven’t been to another college, but even in my core chemistry class two semesters ago, the class size maxed out at 30. That seems pretty good. This year, in one of my political science courses, there are eight students and two teachers. One who graduated from the Harvard Kennedy School and another who just finished his Ph.D.

The reason I came to the Academy was for its small size. The best part about that is that when you come here, you don’t sacrifice quality. The fact that there are so many resources right at your fingertips and the personal interactions you get to from your professors all the way up to the Admiral make the Academy one of the best deals around.
