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

Make sure you visit the school when the students are there, and your parent's aren't around. It is important to look at the school with your parents, but make sure there is an opportunity that you can experience the school like you are an actual student. Check out what students do for fun, and make sure that is what you are into. Likewise, check out whether there are good places to get away and study in if your dorm or apartment is too noisy or distracting.

Describe the students at your school.

There is a wide variety of class mates, both with age, race and gender; though there are more women than men. Most are very friendly and very helpful, willing to share notes and do study groups. But there still are, like at all colleges, the minority of students who don't think about the things they say and don't know what they talk about, or even how to properly behave around other people. Overall, however, the students at Cal Baptist are something that I have always been pleased with.

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

There are certainly a lot of things to take into consideration when choosing a college. In light of this, I think that the college decision should be based off of three things: Career interests, world view, and social needs. Obviously the first question one must ask about a college is "Does this college offer majors that interest me?" It does no good to go to a college that doesn't offer a Nursing program if that is what one wants to take. Additionally, having a few basic ideas about what one wants to study will allow him to focus on information regarding whichever major he is interested in and compare it to other schools as far as quality of learning and experience. Secondly, one may be more comfortable at a school that is centered around a world-view similar to his, such as a Christian who wishes to attend a private university that has other Christian students. And lastly the social needs; if one is looking to being social and active in school then they may be more interested in a smaller college that is more intimate and has a variety of activities available, rather than larger, overwhelming state schools.

What kind of person should attend this school?

It really depends on what the person is planning to study. If they are looking for a major such as Christian Studies, Psychology or Business, Cal Baptist is a great school to choose. The first of those two majors are the best offered here. But with other majors, such as the new Nursing and Engineering programs, the student in question is probably better off trying a different school where they will get a better education. Because this school is baptist, there is no drinking/smoking so partiers should look else where if they want to stay away from hassles.

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

Choose a college you will feelcomfortable in. If you like to be around a lot of people, maybe a public school would be best. If you like smaller class sizes mayme you woud do better in a private school. Don't let the cost of a school determine where you want to go. There are always scholarships, and financial aid opportunities you can apply for. If you feel ready to accomplish your goals try not to choose a party school. A school like that can sometimes put a damper on your dreams, especially when you are putting more time into the partying than in your schoolwork. I also tried to look for a school where the teachers try to get to know and help you accomplish your dreams. It makes you feel more confident, and you feel ready for when you are placed in the work field.

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

Our school has professors that care, and the class sizes are not too big.

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

When choosing a school do your research, take campus visits and talk to current students. Figure out what type of campus you want to become involved. (large, small, religious etc.). Make sure that school offers majors for your career goals. When all is said and done make sure that you fit into the school as well as the school fits into you.

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

First the student must discover what he/she wants in a school. (large campus/small campus religious or party school) Then make especially sure that the school offers majors and degrees that fully prepare you for your career goals. Take campus vists, talk with current students and sit in on classes. If possible spend the night in a dorm and visit the cafeteria. Doing much preparation and narrow your choices down to a few. Then make a judgement based on educational goals...Lastly once in school get involved. There has been numerous researches that have shown those that have finished school with a degree is the person that is involved. So get involved in your school in what area interests you.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school, for me, is the small classes and caring professors. It is a religious campus that allows me not to get involved in extra-curricular activites that might harm my goals. It has been a wonderful experience and I have been many life-long friends. I would never exchange this experience for that of a large school where you are just a number and not a person.

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

I would tell them that the student needs to make the final decision on their own. It is important for a student to find their "own" place at a school or university; I feel it is the worst thing you can do as a parent when it comes this situation is to force your child to go somewhere only becuase you have personal ties to it, and my parents aren't like that. College should prepare students for their future not only in the classroom but in your housing areas, campus activities, and other areas of involvement. If you step onto a college campus as a student and feel like you don't belong there chances are you might not, go with your gut when choosing a school. There might not be one perfect place for everyone but you will get a feeling inside that screams 'I want to be here more than aywhere else' when you find the right place, don't be affraid of that feeling!

What's unique about your campus?

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

Do not get too caught up in prestige of a university. Rather, focus on your personality. You need to holistically look at a unviersity in order to see which one best fits your personality. I loved my school because of its overall environment. Trust your instinct, but also look into the services a university provides. Do they have opportunities for learning both educationally and socially? Look for schools that will best help foster your developmental experience over the next four years.

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

The beautiful the campus, the great community. The friends I made.

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

To parents: Keep in mind the wishes and desires of your child. If they are not fully satisfied with the college they end up at, the chances of them succeeding and striving to do well are rare. To students: Follow your dreams. If there is something you seriously want to pursue, then go for it! You'll never know if you don't try!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who does not wish to become a follower of Jesus Christ.
