Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Alvernia is a very friendly college that is focused on academic excellence, while having just the right amount of fun at the same time.

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

Before you apply, visit! Try to book an over night weekend during semester, so you can get a true feel for that campus life. Talk to a professor in your anticipated major to get an idea of what will be required of you. Hanging out on campus on a day other than the ones set aside for new students will hopefully give you a better idea of the school you are looking at attending. When you do choose a college, make sure to get involved in at least two clubs or activities on campus. Maybe not your first semester, but at least scope it out so you can be involved by your second semester. Being part of a club helps you make friends with people who have similar interests, and also helps you feel like you are contributing to YOUR college. After all, someone is paying for you to be there--make the most of it!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

There isn't anything I wish I knew before starting school. I feel I as at least partially prepared for college, and am not truly dissapointed in the programs or the professors.

Describe the students at your school.

Alvernia is full of smart students who did not prove their potential/did not take high school seriously.

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

TAKE RISKS AND BE OUTGOING! You will find out more about yourself by doing so and this will not only help you in your college years but the rest of your future as well.

What's unique about your campus?

Though it is very small, the small group settings allow you to meet and get to know more people on a more personal level.
