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

I wish I had known about the status's of the the other students who go here. The majority of students who go here are wealthy and all seem to have that same similiar background in attitude. Not all but most of the students are the same; rich and unappreciative and have no idea how lucky they have it in the world.

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

Don't take campus tours, they all hype up the school too much, talk to a variety of different current students and ask for their honest opinion. For kids, spend a night at the campus to learn what the social life is like at night, most colleges have a midnight shadow program where you can spend a night with a current student.

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

I wish I had known what the social life was going to be like, the campus is fun on weekends but very repetitve, every drinking night is the same. This campus needs a shuttle system that will take kids off campus to do different things, but it will never happen because Bryant wants to keep everyne on campus so they can make money

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

Bryant offered many majors and minors that i was interested in. They specialize in the fields that i am interested in and have their great reputation behind it! Bryant's campus is beautiful and just the right size for both land and population.

Find the school that best fits your needs and wants. Look at the overall picture including, academics, housing, campus life, athletics, etc. Make sure it is a place where you will be able to learn, for example if you do not do well in large classes then a smaller university might fit your needs better. Be optimistic and open minded when going into college, since there are so many different people from all over the world. Take the time to get to know people who aren't like those that you have met before. Learn about different cultures and ways of life as well as help educate others about these things as well. When chosing the right college for you, remember to relax, find something that looks like a great school for you overall, and have fun while doing it. College goes by fast, so make sure you do everything you can to make the next four years the best years yet!

Don't try to reinvent yourself in college to be someone that you're not- you will just end up unhappy.

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

My advice to parents, especially ones in a financial crunch like me would be to choose the college that can provide the best financial aid for 4 years. In my opinion, most 4 year colleges achieve the same goals for people, which is to get them a decent job. My experience so far has been great regardless of money though. I have met so many new and different people some of which will be great friends for life. Get out there immediately and find people, don't coupe up in your room all year. I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment I spent at Bryant and when I can't wait to move back in this fall. It really took me until this summer to realize how much I truly fit at Bryant. I think that when you can no longer look at summer break as a good thing, you have found the place where you belong.

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

A lot of snobby rich kids. It annoys me how little they understand what real life is like.

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

The most important thing about finding the right college is to know exactly what you want. It is vital to know the general attritubes of the school you are looking for such as location, areas of studies, and size. Once you discover what you want in those variables, it is easy to gather a list of schools.. After the schools are selected a visit is a must so you can get a glimpse of the colege life on that campus and how it caters to your own needs. You need to make sure that you are extremely satisfied with the school and to address any problems you have before you make a decision. Another way to get a first hand glimpse of the school is to talk to someone who is either an alumni or current student. Make sure they are not trying to sell the school to you but are being genuine. Once you decide on your school you need to make the best of it by getting involved. I made the mistake of distancing myself from extra-curricular activities but when I joined a campus group (a fraternity) it made my college experience far more rewarding.

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

There are a few things that I wish I had known before I attended Bryant. The students at Bryant love to party but it is clique oriented due to how small the enrollment is. In order to maximize the social life at Bryant, it is crucial to be involved in a group on campus. I regret not getting involved in my fraternity before my sophomore year because once I pledged I was able to create many more relationships therefore making my experience a more positive one.
