Hey, I'm wondering about my first year at West Point. Can plebes go to movies if they want? Is there a movie theater even on campus? Can they drive cars? What if their parents lend them a car? Can they take a date to dinner if they want? Where? I have a civilian boyfriend and am just wondering what we can do when he comes to visit. A friend who knew someone at West Point told them that it was a terrible place to bring a boyfriend for a visit. They said you can't hold hands, kiss, hug, or even lay around on a blanket- especially as a plebe. And they said that if you do bring your civilian sweetheart, you get embarrassed all the time by upperclassmen who yell at you all the time when you are in public. They might 'lock you up' in front of them. Is this true? I want the education, but it seems like I would have to basically give up my boyfriend to go there- at least during plebe year. Is that a choice I would have to make? I just want to know the reality of my choice.
