Are you required to live on campus at the Air Force Academy? If not, are there nice, affordable apartments near by? If so, what are the dorms like? And is Colorado Springs is nice part of Colorado? I am beginning to seriously consider attending the academy. However, the location scares me as its far away in state I've never visted. I understand that living in new places is something I'll have to get used to I plan to partake in military life. However, I would like to learn as much as I can before making my decision. Any insight helps. Thanks.
