What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Bismarck State College is that it could use some work; upgrade the older dorms, faculty be outgoing and nice, and extra credit being available. I do enjoy some students and faculty, but not all. This college is a good place to start if you are unsure what you want to do with your life, or if you want a smaller college campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of Bismarck State College is good for a few reasons. The school provides good education for the tuition and bills price, which is a plus for students that are attending there. It provides their own marketplace and other shops for students to get some food or a snack. They also provide free cookouts and other activities to get students involved with school activities. This is my overall opinion of my school and what it provides for students to come.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy Bismarck State College. The class sizes are never overwhelming. You have plenty of opportunities to ask your instructor if you need help with anything. It is located in a good part of town and is close to gas stations, grocery stores, dinning, and shopping.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the college. I am an off campus online student in the same city, but the classes are very flexible and the advisors are great. We have a wonderful library, on and offline to help us with our homework, and have a wonderful recreation area that has a weight area and a swimming pool.

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

Do not wait to go to college. The longer you wait the harder it will be to make room in your life for getting a degree. The times have changed since you were in grade school. You can no longer get a good job without a college degree. Your friends who are saying life is great without going back to school are working at dead end jobs that will not provide for them later in life. Going to college is not an option any more, it is a requirement of life. This is all part of becoming an adult. Taking responsibility for your own future, being able to get a job that will provide for you and your family and allowing you the chance to live a fruitful life. The relationships you make in college will stay with you for the remainder of your life and could very well be the people you build your future happiness with. Look at college as an opportunity not a chore because without it you face a lifetime of meaningless days, worrisome nights and few chances to improve your position in life.

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

As a High School Senior I was very unsure if I even wanted to attend college. I waited until the last minute to sign up for school and therefore received no scholarships or financial aid. If given the chance I would most definitely go back and tell myself to take every opportunity in the form of learning or aid that came my way. I would tell myself to sign up early for school because I would have been able to get into almost any school of my choosing and would have gotten the best choice in classes. I also would tell myself to sign up early, because I would have had a better opportunity of receiving financial aid and scholarships. I have gained so much knowledge both scholarly and personally in the 8 months since I graduated High School. I owe this to the decision to enroll in college and continue my education. This choice will ultimately give me all the tools necessary to help myself in having a bright future.

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

BSC is actually a really good school and a great option to save some money rather than going to a 4 year school right away.

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

Mom and Dad knew what they were talking about even if I thought I was smarter than they were when I was a high school senior. They gave me the following advice and now I know why. Apply yourself to your studies and develop good study habits. You can't just "cruise" through college. It demands time with a book and required learning. Grades will follow you because they appear on transcripts that many employers look at before they hire you. Get out and join organizations and clubs. This will allow you to develop friendships, socialization skills, and to have fun. It will also get you away from home so that "homesickness" doesn't set in as bad when you get to college. Don't be shy--talk to your teachers. It's very important to relate to the teachers by conversing with them when I have questions. I realize they're human too--they make mistakes too, but they have wonderful advise if I just muster the courage to talk to them. Take a variety of subjects in high school. This might help in a decision of a future career possiblity. Yes, parents are mcuh smarter than we think.

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

Before I came to this school I wish I had known what field I wanted to go into right away because it would have saved me a year of extra classes, money, and time. After a first year of generals I then decided to select a major. I did not need most of the classes I had taken in my general classes. It did help me get an Associate of Arts degree, but I really only needed an Associate of Applied Science degree for the program I now have chosen.

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

I would tell myself to take my time and adjust. I don't know everything and that cost me a year in my college career. I tried to rush it and didn't have everything that I needed to do what I was trying to do. I would tell myself to slow down and decide what I really wanted to do. I would also tell myself that the high school counsellors were wrong, college isn't like high school. It is ten times harder, and more work. It takes hard work and dedication to complete a college degree. Not so with high school. High school takes relitively little in comparison.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Somebody who just wants to play at going to school. They only want to go to waste time and not to learn and better themselves.

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

The classes are much smaller enabling the teachers to have one on one time with students that have questions after class. It also creates a better learning environment during class as you know your teacher very well along with the students that are taking that same class. This allows you to form bonds and study groups with the other students.

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

Most importantly, I wish college credit courses would of been suggested to me. It would have been really nice and a lot cheaper to take classes while still in high school that would have gone towards general credits at college level courses. This would have given me more time and effort to focus on classes that are more geared towards my degree. Another major thing I would have wanted to know about, would of been advice on financial aid. I would have liked to sit down with an knowledgable advisor that would have roughly gone over the costs of college and shown me the easiest ways to go about finding financial aid for 4 years. Seek advise on ways to apply for scholarships that are geared twords the school and degree I am planning on going into. I would have also liked to have pushed myself to seek local engineers to job shadow or even start an internship early to see if it was the right career for me. The last thing I would tell myself is to have fun my senior high school year and be ready to buckle down and focus on the next chapter in my life.

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

It is now just a two year community college. Meaning I will have to transfer out to finish my degree in Civil Engineering.
