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

Never take life to seriously, high school is nothing compared to College and College is the beginning of the rest of your life. Past troubles and relationships mean nothing. People at college offer you a new slate that you can do whatever you want with, be prepared to be pushed, judged, and presured, but know its what you do with all those things and really make you who you are.

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

It's in a small town, and has the small town feel. Everyone knows everyone. The teachers know you by name and are very interested in who you are as a person. The teachers really care how you do in class, and in life they will help you do everything you want to do!

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

I would tell myself to relax, and just get to know everyone around you. Enjoy your senior year, and enjoy the transition.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who does not want to work hard in class. Also, anyone who needs to be in a big city, and wants big classes. Someone who does not like the teacher knowing their name, and a lot about you. Someone who does not like to go to class! Most teachers take attendence and you can only miss on average two class periods a semester.

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

Since I did not start college until I was 35 years old, I want all high school seniors to know, that when you put it off, it is harder to get back in the swing of things. But if you do put it off and then decied to go back, you are more committed and it seems to be easier than what you expected. Do not give up in what ever path you decied to take, and make the path your own. Even if you do not know what you want to major in you can always go back to school at some point and get a second major and start a new career.

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

I wish I knew more about writing essays. Since I started I have improved greatly.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I don't know of anything frustrating. I like it all.

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

It definately has a small town feel which I like. The professors and staff are very easily reachable. The class sizes are small and the professors know you by name and take an interest in how you are doing. You are not known as a number or "the guy in the orange shirt."

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

Definately find the right school that suits you. Every person is different, some like the large D1 state schools in big cities with something happening 24/7. Others enjoy smaller schools in small towns where people really get to know you by name and care. Start looking at schools early!!! Take visits to multiply schools of different sizes in different places. Really make sure to find the right school!

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

The lack of support for athletics and greek life. I'm on the XC and Track teams at Baker and it seem we never get the amount of support as other sports on campus such as football and basketball. Also, greek life at least on the fraternity side is dwindling. Coaches and certain teacher don't support/accept us. Incoming men have the typically stereotype stuck in their heads from the media, party houses that don't care about school. Guys are afraid to rush or become associated with the greek system.

Describe the students at your school.

Baker University is known for its family-like community; we are not only close in extra-curricular activities, but we are also very close in the classroom.

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

It is a lengthy process to find the perfect school. I would recommend starting the college search process during your Junior year of high school. There are many colleges out there and you can only choose 1. If you start by looking at the financial aspect, you can get a head start on scholarships and which schools would have a better scholarship support. If you are still unsure about your field of study, I would recommend a school that offers a wide variety of fields. Another thing I would recommend, it might be beneficial to look into the school's study abroad programs. The world is huge and offers many things you might not be able to find in your own backyard. It is beneficial to be able to travel to other countries and gain an understanding on their cultures and how it relates to your major. The wonderful thing about studying overseas is that most universities will help with most costs!

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you are committed to learning and enjoy small class sizes, this university is the best fit for you.

Visit the campus, and decide how apart of your campus you want to feel. Size does matter.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Do not take to many hours. Try to pick how many general classes you need based on how many activities you are in.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Baker is very likely to screw you over on hours if you are not careful, and most good professional courses take 5 years to graduate in.

Do all the research you can but just remember that it is the students/childs choice. You have to let them see what they like and let them feel out each school.

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

I believe that college is a difficult part in anyone's life. I really think that in order to make the most of a college experience you need to have a goal. Try and know what it is you want to accomplish while you're there. After you know what you want to do you can settle down and focus on achieving that goal. Every time I get discouraged, because of the work load, I remember the joy I know I will feel when I am able to have my own classroom and teach wonderful children. When I have that thought in my head I know everything will be alright. I think anyone can take the advice of having a goal. They can use it to thier benefit so they have one clear image in their heads in the midst of a new life filled with new opportunities and new responsibilities. A goal provides leverage for encouragement when the times are hard. Otherwise, I would say to enjoy all the wonderful times college provides. Take in those times and cherish them. They will be the memories that last a lifetime.

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

I wish I had known that you have to be in a sorority to have something to do. Since my parents didn't go to college I didn't know what a sorority was and so I didn't join. It's too late now, but I wish I had joined.

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

Chosing a college is ultimately up to the student. Dont base your desicion on your parents or friends or money situation. If you feel the college or university is the right choice for you, then it probably is. Chosing a college/university is one of the biggest desicions in one's life and it should be a pure, unbiased desicion.

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

I would have liked to know how expensive it gets.
