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

Avila university is a small, welcoming community that allows each student to thrive, and the faculty here is really friendly and wants to help each student learn; you can tell they aren't just here because it's a job!

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

This is my first semester as a college student, and wow, there's just so much to say. For starters, I've learned how to live on my own and it has really helped me become closer to my family because I don't see them as much. College is such a different experience than high school is, it helps students grow up and really understand that this is the real deal...we're on our own know. I've also been taught a lot, classes are so much more difficult than high school classes; but I've actually learned things! It's like all of a sudden you can't just waltz through classes anymore, you really have to try and take the time to really study. This has taught me so much, including that if I try I can accomplish so much more than I thought possible of myself. This has been one the the hardest, but best, experiences of my life. If i would have chosen not to attend college, I don't believe I ever would have realized how much I can do with my life.

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

At Avila University, I would have to say that the campus food is the worst part about it. So if you're going to come here you can't be a picky eater or you better be ready to do some shopping of your own!

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

I would tell myself to apply for every scholarship and grant that i could. College is very expensive when you pay for it out of pocket. I would also tell myself to be responsible and not get behind on assignments; in high school, its easier to catch up if you miss a day or two but in colloge missing one day is like missing a whole year.

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

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would reassure myself that college life was going to be everything that I had expected and hoped for it to be. I love college and my transition was very smooth. My biggest anxiety about coming to school was that I was very close to my friends from high school and while I am an outgoing person I worried about not finding a good group of friends at school. In giving my high school self advice I would tell myself to quit worrying because I would find a fabulous group of friends; the bonds that I will make with my college friends is deeper and are more comparable to bonds that are seen within a family. I am so blessed to have my school family and having a strong school family can truely make all the difference in a college experience. My Avila Family makes my college experience the best time ever and that is what I would tell myself to look the most forward to.

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

The worst thing about my school is that they are not the best at communicating to students the specifics to move in days at the beginning of the year and telling us when the dorms open again after breaks, so we know the exact day we can come back.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that does not like very personal relationships should not attend this school. You are not just another face in the crowd at Avila, so if that is what they are looking for then Avila is definately not the school for them.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Avila is most well known for their nursing program, it is also mistaken for a women only university, but it hasn't been so for about 20 years. However, the nursing program is still thriving.

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

Since I originally was apprehensive about going to a four year school, I would tell myself not to worry and I will do fine! Something that I might change is to go to a school where I could afford to live on campus as I am living at home still, because of the cost of tuition.

It was small and personable. The teachers really cared about the students.

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

Choosing a college is hard. Not only for you, but for everyone. While some might think they know exactly where they want to go, they might end up discovering that their dream wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Be experimental! Look at those schools you might not give a second glance to. Plenty awaits those who are willing to branch out. When you find that school, or even if you just settle for one, make the most of it. Talk to people, get involved, and don't forget your flip flops in the dorm showers!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Almost anyone would feel comfortable attending Avila University.

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

I think you know the right college for you once you visit the campus. Money, yes is an obstical, should not matter in you decision because if the cheapest school is not right for you then you will not enjoy the college experience. Keep your options open because that is the fun part.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants their teachers to rememeber their name and actually care about their academic progress.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

You never hardly use the books you buy for classes. I have only used about three of my books all year out of like eight.

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

I would tell them to chose wisely. Don't chose a school based on it's big name, because I didn't and I am very happy that I chose a smaller school so that I had a better chance of really getting to know my professors and as well them getting to know me. I would also advise them to get a head start on financial assitance if it is needed so that they do not have the stress of finding ways to pay for college.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is very accepting of others. Someone who is very outgoing and is focused on getting through college with a good experiance. Avila university is well rounded and focuses on hard work and the professors wan thier students to achieve, so a student who likes one on one time with thier professors would really like this University.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I dont think that there is any kind of person that would not fit in here at Avila University. There is a very diverse group of people who attend Avila and veryone is very accepting of each other, and everyone gets along really well.

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

Finding the right college for the field you're going into is the most important thing a student can do. A school with emphasis on the field you're going into will have more support and resources to help you through. Remember, you are at school to learn and make a future for yourself. STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! It is important to apply yourself completely, but don't overload yourself. Always remember to laugh and have fun! Find the balance between, school work, class, friends, work, sports, I know it seems hard but its possible, I did it and I couldn't be happier. Always strive to be the best at what you do because remember, you write your own future.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is so small that everyone knows everyones business since I live on campus. It makes it very hard to have my own life and live like an individual. Living on campus has definitely made me more stressed and frustrated.

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

I would want them to find something that is going to give them the biggest advantage in finding a job. Career placement is the most practical and valuable thing to look for in a college. The social life should always come second to school, because the purpose is to learn. The school i am going to has a good network of people in the field that are available for advice and guidance.

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

the work load is very intense and that having a job while going to school is very difficult.

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

The course work is very practicle. we do a lot of hands on learning via the lab and in the classroom. the teachers are very engaging and class participation is a must.
