1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The military environment is very conducive to scholastics and athletic excellence.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
I learned to respect but not blindly bow down to authority. I rebelled but maintained an ordered lifestyle. Many tours were marched.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would have done nothing differently. My advice to new kids...LISTEN and HEAR
4.) What did you like most about your school?
I loved the horses and living a structured life.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
There are many secret places on Post. The history is amazing. The ghosts of past cadets can be heard. Truly a positive experience if you want it to be. But be prepared for some hardships and homesickness. This will make you stronger in life.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Roswell is a hard town with a lot of crime but the Institute is a very safe place and most town folks are friendly to cadets.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
The social life began on weekends. If you did well during the week, you will have free time. The local girls were friendly. The best social occasions happened when I went home on furlough but the friends I made are lifelong.
