What's unique about your campus?

Diversity and low stress environment. Small class sizes, there is no grading system eliminating a competitious atmosphere, and the students are a college family of diverse ethnic backgrounds.

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

College life is a whole new world. What you've learned over the past 4 years is only a fraction of what you need to know in order to face the challenges the real world will present to you. College will help you face those challenges by adding to your current knowledge criticle thinking skills. You will develope insight understanding why people make good or poor decisions. And best of all you will learn that your new college peers, who are from various countries around the world, will think your values and beliefs are pretty strange and weird to.

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

Alverno College offers and provides an elite education. I can not provide you with " a worse thing" about my school. Although, it would me nice if my tuition was reduced 50%.

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

Although it may be tempting to choose a college that many of your friends are going to, it's important to make that decision based on what school will benefit your needs. Choosing a college should be based on how well the institution will prepare you for a career and help build life-long skills. I am a strong believer in group work and discussions because this not only helps understand material more fully, but also builds skills that will help in the work force and in everyday life. This also enables positive interaction between students and faculty which only enriches the learning environment. Colleges should create a comfortable and friendly environment, and teaching techniques are apart of that. Colleges should offer a variety of learning approaches to benefit each student. By presenting material in a variety of ways students will be able to connect on a multitude of levels. Making the most of your college experience consists of being open-minded, working hard, getting help when needed, and involving yourself in campus activities. The best college experience won't come from just taking classes, but from discovering and participating in numerous opportunities the campus has to offer.

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

We don't have a lot of tests, but more papers and group projects.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Buying books because I like to buy them online not from the book store, and the only way to know what books you need is to go to the book store and look it up.

The class sizes are small and feel alot more safe than other schools. The atmosphere is more like a family than a school.

I believe that the student should really research the college they plan on attending. My school fits me perfect but only because I looked into other schools and found my perfect fit.

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

Alverno is extremely focused on helping those who actaully want to go into the field of education and/or nursing only; focusing less on the medical field or fields that men have dominated for some time.

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

I'd just encourage students to check into schools at the beginning of their junior year, so that when they find the right school they can apply early. If they apply early, they can find out early if they got in or not and make arrangements to apply to some other schools that didn't make it on to their first top ten list. This way they have a back up and they aren't forced to go anywhere. I'd also encourage everyone to check everything from cost of classes to even getting to know staff a head of time; this allows the student to see if the school is as promising as their brochure makes them out to be. As for the most out of college life, it all comes natural if you have no money, homing or working problems, so get all your personal issues out of the way ASAP.

What's unique about your campus?

Alverno tries to be dedicated to helping more women become known as prospective human beings, that are just as needed as men. I like this because women are always seen as nurturing and motherly; which is why they're thought to be nothing more than a maid, but women can do the same things men can. EVERYONE deserves the same advantages and they create one stepping stone towards getting everyone those advantages.

It is an all women's college and that is important. It is great to meet women of all cultures. I can study hard and not worry about men interfering. You feel comfortable that you can focus on studies insted of relationships.

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

I would definitely make parents check out the entire degree program. RESEARCH everything. Money is important. Check out the type of university it is. Go for your degree and anticipate the unexpected. Make the choice that is best for you, and for your future. Finally, graduate!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

unfair of distribution of financial aid to those who need it. I see college as a business first, and not for students needs.

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

I would tell them first and foremost make sure you go somewhere that you feel comfortable being yourself. Whether it is when you are studying, learning or practicing - it is so important to feel in your own element so you can succeed at your best. Also, unlike myself, i would reccommend going away to school. I never wanted to go far for school because I did not want to leave my friends, family, boyfriend, etc. However I know i would have had a great experience and could always come back to the people that mean the most of me. Lastly, I would figure out how you are going to finance your education, keep it organized and smart. Look for the lowest interest rates and even better get scholorships and volunteer!

What's unique about your campus?

The pesevereance the teachers have for us and the pride and strength we have as students to academically succeed and strive to learn and be better at our profession.

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

How dedicated i would have to be. - for example how to juggle my work schedule and school schedule.
