U.S. News & World Report writes: “Alex Werden’s first impression of the U.S. Military Academy was right out of ‘Harry Potter.'”

“‘It’s like showing up at Hogwarts,’ he says. As a rising high school senior from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, he had gone to the storied Hudson Valley campus to participate in a summer leadership camp.”

“Like the fictional school, West Point is an imposing ‘castle on a hill,’ he says, exemplifying its mission to groom the best and the brightest, albeit in leadership, not wizardry. After the weeklong experience, the college became Werden’s top choice.”
