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

My school accepts people the way they are, and it encourages people to live the life that they love (as long as they work really hard for it!).

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are as motivated as I am to do their best.

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

I would advise students and parents to take a tour of every college and to find out what specialty areas the school does well in. Even though the student may feel s/he knows what career s/he wants to enter into, that will probably change. So make sure that the school the student chooses to attend has a variety of different programs in case there is a change of mind. Also, make sure internet access is readily available because it is important for almost every aspect of both schoolwork and of a good social life.

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

the advice i would give a new student would be to go to the campus. Stay there for a weekend, check out the classes ask questions that are important to you. A school can't be solely judge on the education you recive from there. if you like the people get to know them better, add them on facebook or some other soical networking website...ask them questions about there day so you can get a week rounded grasps of the college that you are intrested in. thank you.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates are really enjoyable people. As with nay school you have some obnoxious people but for the most part everyone is extremely friendly and willing to get together in study groups and help with academic success.

Visit the school as many times as you can before you make a decision on a school.

Describe the students at your school.

18 to 25 students and the professors get to know you by name and remember your name. They care about your success in class and are required to have 10 office hours a week to help you. There are no Teacher Assistants and over 60% of the professors have the highest degree available in their field. Most professors have real life experience as well.

How friendly the atmosphere is on campus. How much the professors care about you. How this school is like one big family.

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

To take your time in making a decision. Visit a bunch of different schools that are different sizes to determine what school is the best for you. After you visit a school right down what you liked and disliked right away so you don't forget and mix schools up with eachother. After visiting a bunch of schools determine a few that you like a lot and stay overnight there so you get a feel for the campus. Make sure to sit in on a few classes so you get to see what the professors are like and what the other students are like as well. Ask students what their experience's with the school has been, and what they like and dislike about their college. The most important thing is to start early and take your time because when you find the school that is right for you, you will know it.

I would tell them to consider all their options and weigh out what is most important to them. Once you chose a college, accept the fact that that's what you chose and trust that your made the right decision.

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

I think that it's important that future students spend an adequate amount of time pre-planning and researching colleges and looking at practicalities, especially finances. I believe that it's extremely important for the future student to know (and feel) their parents' support. I also believe that it is important for the student to have a list of expectations for their school (so as to zero in on the best school for them) and to have a set of personal (life/long-term) objectives to use to see if the school of their choice aids in accomplishing these objectives.

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

I wish I knew about the extracurricular activities and how to secure a job on campus.

Visit the campus more than once and in different seasons. Meet with professors in your interested field and you will be able to tell if it is for you.

The campus itself is very beautiful and has lots of great spaces. The new library is fantastic with great resources and staff. There is a great selection of courses and programs, with many unique courses offered. There is also a fantastic study abroad program available. The people on campus are generally very open minded and friendly, also the campus is located in a great part of town with many unique shops, great resturaunts, and amenities in easy walking distance.

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

Don't decide on a specific area of study in your freshman year. Take your time and take classes from several areas because you might discover something that you didn't like before. Get involved in clubs and social activities. Also, never buy textbooks from the bookstore, you'll almost always find them cheaper online.

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

I can't think of anything off hand. I felt like the literature and orientation prepared me well.

Aquinas does, by far, have the most beuatiful and unique campus that I have been on. It is abundant with trees, paths through the woods, and beautiful, historic buildings. Also, it has many great houses and companies and businesses surrounding it that keep things interesting.

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

Really, you only get one shot at making a choice about which college or university to attend, for starters. That's the hard part. I believe as parents you need to encourage your students to dive into what the love, who they are, and what the hope for in life-because their universities will help to develope and foster these things. As parents it is important to remember that their child's choice may not be theirs, and that they all need to work together in the decision. As students, listen to your parents, remember to tell them that you love them and appreciate their advice, but go with your gut. Go with what feels right for you, and remember to discern what you need, want, and hope for in a college. Then, make the decision and don't look back (even if family gives you a hard time!). Once you get to college, live on campus at least the first two years, dive into extra-curriculars, walk as much as possible, and try new things. Don't be afraid to feel a bit uncomfortable . Remember to make friends, exercise, work your butt off as a student and have fun!
