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

Make sure that the classes not only suit your needs but are actually teaching you. Being a new student, you may want to make the most of your college experience, but don't forget why you are there in the first place. It is no fun being the person who didn't graduate with all your friends. Live up college life, but stay focused. Sit in on classes to see how big they are and what they are like. Find out how much tuition is and how much will come out of your pocket. Also, don't be afraid to change schools or programs if you find out it wasn't right for you. Don't wait to change majors or schools because the longer you have invested your time in one school the harder it will be to transfer without postponing the graduation date.

What's unique about your campus?

That the environment really forces you to learn. I have not forgotten pertinent information at Alverno as compared to other schools and classes I have attended. It just sticks with you.

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

How much money I would have to spend for school (minus the financial aid). Its a gamble how much financial aid you will get. Knowing what I know now, I would have saved more.

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

I would tell students to visit the college campus that they are thinking of. Once you get there, you'll know if it's the right choice for you. It's an overwhelming feeling of belonging and you just know that it's where you are supposed to be.

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

It is expensive; but they do offer scholarships and financial aid----and it is completely worth it.

Describe the students at your school.

Alverno College students are intellectual, determined, strong, independent women, who are looking to make a differnce in the world.

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

A common question asked amongst students looking for a college is most often "Which is the right one for me?" When looking for the right one, you have to go with your gut feeling. What makes you comfortable? What makes you feel at home? What makes you say, "I can't wait to come here. " You have to look at all of your options. What do you see yourself doing in the future? If you're unsure, then go with a college that will help you expand your horizon. "Your college years are the best years of your life" my mother used to say to me and she was right. That's where you learn who you are and what you stand for. So when you're choosing a college, go for the one that says, "I'm going to work with you to become the best you can be". That's all you can ask for. The right college will help you strengthen the abilities that you already have and find new abilities within yourself that you didn't know you had. In the end it's about becoming a better you and enjoying the ride.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is not determined, doesn't take school seriously and is going for the parties.

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

I would tell others to take as much time as needed to find the right school for you. I looked at a number of colleges and made the effort to concentrate on their campus. I visited each school I was accepted to, trying to find the best fit for me. By figuring out what you need to succeed, you can narrow down your choices. I knew I needed the disabilities accomedations at the schools I was looking at. I began by looking at the schools with strong disabilities programs. By figuring out what you'd like to study, you can also narrow down your choices. I was interested in community work/ social work. Alverno had a unique program, community leadership, which I felt was exactly my vision of a carrer. Their campus was in the city but, in a residental area. The fact that I could commute and recieve a large scholarship, help me weigh my choices. Look at schools with an understanding of you not a large group of people your age. Talk to anyone and everyone that has experiance with the school from a business , student or community perspective. Through networking you can find a perfect fit.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is not open to trying new things. As a freshman I learned that I have to open my eyes to see the global perspective in everything. Students also should be able to feel comfortable with not recieving A,B or C's as a grade. You have to look at how your processing the information and applying it to your everyday life.

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

That my college experiance has been a much more relaxed enviorment than high school. I emphise that Alverno is different than a regular college. I continue by explaining Alverno's eight abilities and the grading process. For people that aren't familiar with grading not by A,B,C,D but, by S & E's it's hard to explain. Alverno has a very unique way of assessing an individuals knowledge. I feel at times its better for me, because I know exactly where I have difficulty in a course by recieving my feedback.

We are an all girl school. Alverno does not give grades, but rather satisfactory or unsatisfactory. This allows students to do the best they can with the feedback given from teachers. Alverno College challenges you in more ways that one. Feedback from professors allows you too succeed at everything you learn. Our school helps out in so many ways such as tutoring opportunities for students, internship staff, career help, on campus job opportunities, etc. Overall, Alverno College is unique in all ways compared to other colleges. The help students receive here is remarkable and extremely beneificial.

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

College is a great opportunity for students to expand their education, social skills, problem-solving skills, analytical skills, communication skills, etc. When choosing the best college for yourself and or son/daughter, cost should not be an issue. Even though college is expensive, its worth it in the end. College is about building your knowledge as well as other various skills listed previously among many others. Choosing the right college should involve looking at the various qualities and opportunities they offer. The program of study is one of the most important qualities when choosing the right college no matter the cost. College is a life experience and overall the opportunity of a lifetime. In order to make the most of your college experience, you should participate in clubs of interest, volunteer opportunities, sports, study groups and more. Most importantly, students should not forget to make the most of their personal life as well. College is challenging and will be frustrating at times, but enjoying everyday life is very important. Overall, I feel students should make the most of their college experience because its a wonderful opportunity to develop as a great individual and make a difference in the world.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anybody should attend this college. However, it's an all girl school, so men can't attend the undergraduate program, but men can attend Alverno to get their master's. Alverno college is a great school! It is expensive compared to other schools, but it's definately worth it in the long run. A person who wants a good education, great peers, and great professiors should attend Alverno college!

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

I would suggest them to not just visit one, visit as many as you can. I would also recommend visiting ones that you might not be interested in but you never know what can happen when you go there and take a tour. When visiting colleges and universities ask lots of questions and talk to people that already go there and what they think of it. Most of all just be open to the whole expierence, Alverno was not my first choice and i never even looked at it when i was first looking but i wish i would have because it is truly a wonderful experience.

What's unique about your campus?

That it is all women and that the classes are small. I also like that everyone goes by their first name even the professors so everything is equal among students and staff.

The small classes and that teachers are not just teachers they are your friends too.

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

Do what is best for your child. Find the needs that fit them, not something that will make them feel uncomfortable at or that they will not like. Tour the college before and spend a day in the classroom environment and schedule a night to stay in the dorms with an upperclassmen to get to really know the school. Make sure the school you want your child to attend can fit the needs of yours or her budget and it has the program right for your child.
