POSTED ON: Monday, September 13, 2021 10:00 AM by Visitor Center
The U.S. Naval Academy has launched a new Naval Academy Business Services Division (NABSD) website making it easier for tourists to experience the sights, scenes, and activities on the Yard.
The new website, NavalAcademyTourism.com, provides a fresh take on one of the nation's most notable institutions focusing on welcoming visitors.
"After touring the Naval Academy, every visitor leaves with a greater understanding of what it is like to be part of the U.S. Naval Academy,” said Doug Borrebach, USNA’s director of business services. “Our goal is to give visitors a more in-depth look at life at the Academy and what it takes to prepare midshipmen to become our nation's leaders."
The website allows for visitors to plan their visit to the Naval Academy, with information on available tours, buildings and sites to visit, places to eat on the Yard, and more.
NavalAcademyTourism.com supports USNA’s Midshipmen Activities Fund, which funds club sports, extracurricular activities, academic groups, and functions, such as the Softball Team, Glee Club, Drum and Bugle Corps, and Army-Navy pep rallies, promoting camaraderie and teamwork and more, bringing quality of life experiences to the Brigade of Midshipmen.
Founded in 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy today is a prestigious four-year service academy that prepares Midshipmen morally, mentally, and physically to be professional officers in the naval service. More than 4,400 men and women representing every state in the U.S. and several foreign countries make up the student body, known as the Brigade of Midshipmen. U.S. News and World Reports has recognized the Naval Academy as a top-five undergraduate engineering school and a top 20 best liberal arts college. Midshipmen learn from military and civilian instructors and participate in intercollegiate varsity sports and extracurricular activities. They also study subjects such as leadership, ethics, small arms, drill, seamanship and navigation, tactics, naval engineering and weapons, and military law. Upon graduation, midshipmen earn a Bachelor of Science degree in a choice of 25 different subject majors and go on to serve at least five years of exciting and rewarding service as commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps.
