The United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland prepares young men and women to become officers in the Navy or Marine Corps. The school was established in 1845 on land where a military fort once stood. Students are called midshipmen. The Naval Academy provides undergraduates four years of study in 25 major areas. Degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics are especially popular. Many Naval Academy graduates have become important American leaders. Former President Jimmy Carter, for example, was a midshipman. Senator John McCain, a former presidential candidate, also graduated from the school. Foreign students also attend the Naval Academy. Currently, there are about 60 of them. David Ochy is from Panama. He says it is difficult to learn a new language and get used to a different culture. Student Santiago Gonzalez-Ayer of Spain says the Academy has helped him feel more a part of that new culture. The Naval Academy says its job is to develop a student’s skills, character and understanding of others. International program director Tim Disher says the U.S. Navy gains from the Academy’s foreign students. He graduated from the Naval Academy in 1981. He says, at that time, only top officers worked with foreign officers and foreign navies. But he says this is no longer true. He says the exchange program helps American midshipmen understand the wider world. Midshipman Gonzalez-Ayer plans to serve as a naval officer when he returns to Spain. David Ochy wants to work as an ocean engineer back in Panama.
