What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't slack on the first test. You need to study. No matter how ready you thought you were for college and for the hard work, you need to do more. College isn't as easy as high school was for you. You're going to need to work harder and put in the extra hours of studying.

What's unique about your campus?

The small classroom sizes. The smaller classes make it nice to have the teacher student bond that we had in high school. You feel like the teacher knows you and knows your needs better.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who like small environments and doesn't like to be in a crowd of people. Someone who wants to work hard cause the teachers will push you to acheive the best possible grade in their class.

What kind of person should attend this school?

In order to be able to survive here a person must be able to keep up with a medium sized work load, and be happy with a smaller population of students. Nothing else like race , religion (there is a buddist professor), or sexual orientation matter, even though it is a Baptist college.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I usually brag about the size of the school, the quality of the education, and the positive disposition of most of the faculty, staff, and students. The school is a smaller school, but it's still diverse. The education is sought after in WV, bein one of two schools offering a Physician's Assistant degree. Also, the faculty, staff, and students are very kind and are genuinely concerned for the well-being of each other.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Are school is best known for the PA program, although music is on the rise. Any medical profession at this school is looked upon highly. However, the degree for these programs is not easy to obtain.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The most important advice I would give is to first speak the professors one on one. If you didn't get along with them when you met them, then you never will. Talk to the students. Don't just talk to the people that look like your friends from highschool, but pick random people and ask them there opinion. Someone will give you the truth about the school. Pay attention to the students attitudes walking around. Ask yourself if you could fit in there. Most people go away to college far from home, so you have to make sure that the place you are going to go can become a home away from home.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about our school is the professors. They are extremely concerned about there students and make sure that every student has a fair chance to succeed. If a student is having a difficult time understanding, or just needs someone to talk to, the professors always leave their doors open and are eager to listen.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Students want to figure out what type of class size they are comfortable with first, then look at the area, financial aid, and how helpful the administration is. Usually the admissions office is a good place to get a good look at the overall attitude of the school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any student from all backgrounds are welcome at Alderson-Broaddus. Everyone is welcome. The school is a small school and everyone knows everyone.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of the classmates are open to new ideas, focused on their studies, and honest people, but some are there more for the partying than the classes.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Let the student pick the school. That is where the student will be living for the majority of the next four years. If the student does not feel at home at the school, the student will not have a fun, rewarding college experience. There needs to be communication between the parents and the students so that both are happy with where the student is going. The parent should encourage the student to apply to certain schools, but should not pressure or force the student to go to a particular school. Also look at the classes and class size. The student needs to pick a school that has an environment the student can learn and succeed in. Once in college, get involved with the college community and organizations. This is the easiest way to find friends. Don't worry about making friends in college, because, if the student picks a school that the student feels comfortable in, the student will find a group where the student belongs.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There is not a lot of things to do on the weekend other then partying. However, the partying almost always has drinking involved and I feel that it can sometimes get out of hand.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Alderson-Broaddus College is best known for its nursing and physicians assistant programs. It is also very well-known for being affiliated with the American Baptist Association.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise everyone to experience their college in person before making any decisions. You should talk to the students and faculty and not be afraid to ask questions about the religion and politics of the campus because those things can make a huge difference in how comfortable you'll be at the campus. Many colleges offer "Senior Sleepovers," where a prospective student can spend the night in a dorm with a current student and attend classes the following day, as well as meet with financial aid and academic advisers. Senior Sleepovers are a great opportunity to really get the feel of the campus and decide whether it is the right place for you to spend the next four years of your life. The most important advice is to get to know the campus and the people before you make the decision: be abosolutely sure this is what you want.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell parents and their children to make the right choice for you, don't go to a college because your friends are going there or because your parents went there. Find a college that works for you, one that offers the educational path that will lead you to your dream job.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the best part of my school being the small class sizes because that gives you more one on one learning time with your professors. I would also have to say I consider being close to home the best part about my school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In my own opinion, I think it is very important to look a lot of schools. I personally only looked at 2 schools that were completely different from each other so it was easy to pick the one that I favored more. I think students need to be exposed to everything their school can offer (from housing to athletics to social activities) in order to decide what would be their best fit. I also think that it should be the student's decision, with little input from their parents because if you are not completely satisfied in where you are going your chances of being and staying happy in that place are slim. As far as making the most of a college experience, I have found it very important to get out of your room and take advantage of all the activities your campus has to offer! Even if you don't like what is being offered, chances are that there is someone else that agrees with you. The more time you spend making friends and being active, the happier you will stay and the more enjoyable your education will be for you.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I generally brag that there are only 3 senior accounting majors in my entire school, thus making it very easy to learn my major.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the amount of politics that occurs between the administration. They have a set of guidelines to follow, but never do. They meet people and pick favorites, and those favorites can get away with murder or get any on/off-campus housing assignment they like. It is very obvious how the administration differs in their actions toward the people they know and the ones they may have only met once or twice. It is common for employees here to be "best friends" with a student.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In order to find the college that's right for you, make sure that you know what you want to get out of your career at school. Once you know that, you can lookat what all your potential schools have to offer and make a better decision. To try to make the most of your experience, just take the opportunity to try as many things that you think you can handle. Have a variety of activities as well as making sure you do all your work.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag about the crazy tuition prices that go up while the quality of the facilities goes down.
