Hi everyone, I had the opportunity to attend a CVW this week and it was really awesome. However, it also opened my eyes to a whole other side of the academy. I understand that morale was probably not at its best (it's almost finals) and many mids were irritated about having a parade, but it seemed as if there were a lot of disgruntled mids who were blowing off their school work and making some (don't know how to say this) decisions that I would have thought to be not permissible. I guess I am wondering, is partying at the Naval Academy really prevalent and can it be used (or is it used) to influence one's standing with the upperclassmen in charge? And are some mids just given more leniency than others even when they mess up? Overall, the environment seemed way less strict than I thought it would be. Sorry for the strange question, and thank y'all so much for your time! Go Navy!
