Not only is this the cream of the crop as far as institutions of higher learning, it is very impressive. From the well maintained grounds to the sheer size of it all, the Chapel is not to be missed

The entire facility is amazingly beautiful, The chapel alone makes a visit worthwhile, but there is much more to see--interesting statuary and a walking trail.

We watched the 20 minute video about the life of a cadet. Then we visited the gift shop in the visitor center. They were very helpful and friendly. We then hiked up the trail to see the chapel. That alone is worth a stop. Absolutely...More
