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

Go to a college visit that is not planned with the institution and talk to random students around campus about the institution. The people who work either at the institution or in the admissions office will do or say whatever you want to hear to get you to go to their school, get the real inside information from the students not affiliated with the admissions office. Focus on grades a lot your freshman year, one bad semester your freshman year can cause you to work yourself out of a rut the rest of your college career to get your financial aid back.

What's unique about your campus?

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

Visit a lot of different campuses. Just because a college is close to your hometown, does not mean it is a right fit for you. Sit in on a couple of freshman classes in subject areas that you are interested in. It is good to know what you might be getting into. If the classes seem too easy or much to difficult, you might want to consider a different course study or a different school. Also, don't go to a certain school just because a lot of your friends will be going there. College is a great place to meet new people and make new friends. Talk to current students at the schools. Most will be glad to help you out. Do a lot of research. Know what you will be getting into before you committ to a school. Lastly, search the internet and ask school counslers about possible scholarships available for you. There is a lot of money out there to help lessen the financial burden to the student.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The dry campus policy and the visitation policy. We are adult, but our judgements are not trusted by the administration.

Most professors are willing and able to work with each individual student on more personal levels than other colleges.

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

When finding the college of your choice, make sure to stick with it for a while. Many students will enter a college as freshmen and within a few weeks leave to go back home. This is one of the worst things to do, always give it a shot for the first full semester. Homesickness is inevitable. Become best friends with your roommate. Join things on campus, clubs, sports, or go greek.

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

It is important to find a school that fits the student's personality and priorities. If non-academic college life is important find a more populated school in a city. If academics are important find a school with small enrollment and involved programs. It is also important to find a school that is strong in the subject that the student is interested in pursuing. If the student doesn't know what exactly they want to do with their life yet, find a great liberal arts school that will allow them to experience several different areas of study before making a decision. Basically, just choose a school personally fits with the student's preferences and desires. The best place to find out the truth about a school is from current students who would not be as biased as the recruiting office.

What's unique about your campus?

Small classes with very personal interaction with professors.

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

Choosing a college is hard and there is no sure way of knowing you picked the right one. Be sure to visit all of the colleges you are interested in, preferably while school is in session. It gives you a feel of how the school works and what the students are like. Once you pick a school, dont be scared to step out of your comfort zone and take some risks. Get involved in things. Dont put yourself or the people you meet into a box. Explore new things that interest you and take some classes just for fun. No matter who you are or what you beleive, there will be someone there who wants those same things you do. It may take awhile, but friends will happen with time. Be patient and persistant. College is a place to have fun, but also a place to learn and to grow.

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

Make sure your son/daughter is willing to put forth the effort to succeed in college before you go spending tens of thousands of dollars on your child's education.

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

That the tuition was going to rise each year and that the starting tuition i came in with would go up as well which is unfair.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anybody who does not want to attend class because all of your teachers know you and if you are not in class they constantly will take note of it. The also have to be dedicated to what they are studying in order to succeed well.

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

The advice I would give would be to go and visit the college of your choice. You are going to want to get a feel for how the campus is and how the poeple are at that particular school. To make the most of your college experience make sure you get involved. Being involved in a club or a sport will give you things to do on the weekends and it will also help you make friends, people who will be your friends for the rest of your life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that wants to work hard and is ok with the small town feel on their college campus.

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

Talk to people who currently attend the school and find out how they feel about the school. Also look at the outlook of the school when it comes to tuition prices and other fees. Also look at their national rankings in different degree programs. Finally follow your heart and go to the school you want, it is some of the best times you will have before you have to grow up!!!

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are focused, driven, hard-working individuals who have a strong sense of who they are and what they want to do in life, as well as how to get those things.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Our school is small and there is a low student to teacher ration. We have nationally ranked dining services, and a close-knit community on campus and in the surrounding town. There are opportunities to be involved in many different things on campus and there is a large variety of organizations and groups.

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

To parents: allow your students to make their own choice. Guide them in their decision and share your opinions, but ultimately they have to live with the choice so let them decide themselves. Also, be supportive of the things that your student is active in, whether you like your daughter playing rugby or your son being on the cheerleading squad, be supportive, it means the world to us to feel like you stand behind us. To students: work hard while you are in school. You or your parents are paying lots of money for you to get the best education you can, so do that. Don't exclude all fun, but remember why you are at college in the first place. Also, try new things, don't feel like just because you were never in the ski club in high school that you can't be in college. There are so many opportunities to enrich yourself and your life that you would be foolish to only do what you have always done.
