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

My school is unique in a lot of ways. For one thing the classes are small. In most of my classes I have about 20 people. No class is ever much bigger than that. Another thing I love about Avila is that the teachers are so friendly and willing to help with anything they possibly can to make sure that you are successful. Also, I love how the campus is set up. I don't have to walk very far from building to building. All of the buildings are set up in a circle, so it makes it easy.

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

It's tough finding the right college, but once you do....you definately know it and it feels good. You need to research all of the schools that you are interested in. Make sure that you go visit these places to make sure that you like the feel of the campus. Also, make sure the schools are in your budget. And apply for scholarships!!!

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

When looking at a college you are thinking about attending, talk to some of the upper classmen. Upper classmen tend to have experienced more of the ups and downs of a particular college and can offer you insight into what exactly happens at the college you are interested in. Many times they will also tell you a lot of things that college recruiters will not tell you. College tours and recruiters are designed to put a positive spin on everything. Make sure you know what the college is really like before you invest your time and money into a college that might turn out to be the wrong place for you. Additionally, many colleges allow a prospective student to sit-in on classes which could help you in determining how the faculty approaches the learning environment. Basically the more hands on experience you have with a college the better informed you are going to be. This will make you better equipped to handle challenges as they approach as you have gained a basic understanding about the college from the very beginning.

Make sure to go on several college visits because when you are where you should be you will know it right away. Students should make the most of the experience because college will be one of the best times of your life. It's a time to discover yourself and what you want to accomplish now and the rest of your life.

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

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

The moment you walk onto the campus, weather you'd be taking a tour or already a student you feel at home. The atmosphere is very welcoming and warm and you create a family very easily. We're a small university with a big heart. Its a small campus, yet you still won't know everybody on campus. For you to completely understand, you'll have to walk your own two feet upon the ground the campus stands on. Our surrounding community is proud and very supportive of Avila's endevors. Growing and Prospering are Avila's new view.

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

First is to RESEARCH, it will be difficult but if you don't find the schools that offer what you're looking for then you'll be no where and if you don't know what you're looking for find the schools that have your interests or hobbies. Second would be to VISIT the schools you are interested in. There's is only so much you can do by recieving mail and looking at it. The only way to know if a school is right for you is to put your own two feet on the campus, its one of the best ways for you to get an acutal understanding of what the school offers and how it's right for you. Third would be to HAVE FUN, the process of searching for colleges is a major pain at times, but having fun while doing it will take away some of the ease. When going through the process tag along friends or family members or both! Everyone you know is curious to know what school you'll be attending. They are just as eager to find out as you are. And once you've finally made your desicion, BREATHE!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is that we lack in school spirt. We are in the NAIA division when it comes to our sports. Our sports are fairly new at our university and don't get the respect they deserve often, like our arts or education progam does. With it being fairly new getting the student body to participate can be rough at times but we as a universtiy are taking those steps to improve the unity of our students. It's going well so far but there are times where it is still completely frustrating.

The faculty all get to know you and form strong personal relationships if you're willing.

Visit the college campus and see how it feels. Don't go during the summer. Go while it is packed with students so you can see how they treat you. Make sure you choose based upon things that are tangible, not because of a boyfriend/girlfriend, or a sports team only because if something happens you want to make sure you still want to go to that school.

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

The class sizes are small so it makes for a great learning environment.

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

Get as much information as you can about schools that you or your child is interested in. Figure out what is most important to you when deciding on a university and don't budge on those things because small things sometime you can lilve without but the big and important things are things that should take the priority.

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

I wish I had know exactly what the classes were like. I expected them to be larger than they were, which was a nice surprise. I also wish I would have looked more into the extra clubs and activities available so that I was more aware of what was available to me.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any person could attend this school. If you come from a very large school and don't like a small school atmosphere you shouldn't come because it is a very small school atmosphere. It is a very open campus that .

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

Do what feels right for you. If you don't want to go to a big school and have huge classes don't apply at the enormous state schools even if their financial aid is better. It's better to take out loans to go to a school that will get you the best job and learning experience than it is to go to a school just becuase they gave the most money or it's farthest away from mom and dad. Once in that school, make the best of it. Join activities that interest you and you enjoy. Don't try to join every activity just because you can and overload yourself, there is a school aspect to college.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Not someone who wants to hide. Someone who wants to be noticed and remembered. Like small classes and a challenge, but with plenty of help around campus if needed. They should probably be somewhat independent, based on finances and eating services.

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

The classes are small and personal. All of my professors know me and recognize me in passing. I can sit down and have lunch with most of my professors without feeling wierd. Because of the small classes I don't have to feel doomed if i have a doctor's appointment or anything. They worked with me throughout my pregnancy and really went above and beyond to keep me enrolled.
