The undergraduates, known as cadets, are commissioned as officers in the US Army upon graduation. You can watch them on parade or competing in intercollegiate athletics in a wide vartiety of sporting events. As a military installation, West Point is a small, self-contained city with housing for the military stationed here in support of the Academy, a Department of Public Works to maintain the roads, grounds and facilities, two libraries (Academic and Community), a military hospital, fire department, chapels and restauraunts. West Point's 3,000 civilian employees have access ti Eisenhower Hall Theatre, the Hudson Valley's premiere performing arts center, and to recreational facilities such as an 18-hole golf course, ski slopes, hiking trails., etc.
