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

When looking for the right school one must look at all the options. Never be discouraged by junior colleges, they too offer great education and resources. It is never a bad idea to keep a junior college in mind as a safety school. Attending a junior college first can save money and in most cases make transfering into a university a lot easier. In general always look for the school that offers their major of interest, the vibe that best suits them, and the location (city/state). It is always safe to look into other majors just in case their number one choice gets full. Always visit the schools they apply to or have an interest for. This way both the parents and student can look at the campus life/activities and get the real functioning vibe. At the end it is best to pick what they want (not what parents want or where friends/significant others are attending). If they are not a party person, do not go to a school known to party. It is their future and career and it starts with college (even if it takes more than 4 years). It will be worth it!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I would recommend students who are interested in partying and drinking not to attend this school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Students who are interested in receiving a wonderful education should attend this school. It is not a party school but is very diverse and culturally involved. Classes feel more like big families rather than just a bunch of strangers in a class. People who want to study and make life-time freinds would feel right at home.

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

Visit every college you seriously want to apply for. and if you dont like the people there, dont make it your first choice! college is about making life long friends, and if you dont like the people when you visit there is no way you could like them while actually attending!

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

Walking around campus can get hard because of all of the hills. And never be afraid to ask anyone anything wether its faculty or students alike.

The most unquie thing about Cal Poly Pomona is the campus environment. Its green and free where many students are seen laying on the grass studying or simply taking a little nap.

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

I would advice parents and students to not only look at the academic reputaion of a college, but to look at other factors such as the environment of the school, on campus clups and also the alumni affiliation with the college. Many college graduates find jobs through clubs that have events with their alumni's which rather then having a costly education that will not give you a good job.

It is close to Los Angeles. It is a great engineering school for people who don't have the best grades coming out of high school. It has great engineering clubs.

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

The best advice I can give is to visit the college you are applying to. You may be surprised that a more popular college is less suited for you. While the education provided at a college is extremely important, if you do not enjoy being there, then it is a waste of time. Find out what clubs are available to help you in your major, much of the learning happens outside of the classrooms. College is all about the experience, not just the grades.

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

Parents, find a college that won't put you or your students in financial trouble. Find out costs ahead of time so that you can make a prepared decision. Look at the surrounding area, is it safe? Would you want to go to school there? Are there a lot of extra curricular activities at the schools you are looking at? Make sure the school spirit is strong, this usually is directly proportionate to how powerful their sports program is and how many different sports that school plays. Check out the student body size, does your child need to feel unique or would it matter if he/she was one in thirty thousand? Student, make sure you know somebody going into college. It makes things a whole lot easier. If you do not know anybody going to college I would advice going to early orientations and making friends as those people can be who you spend the rest of your years with. Meet new people, participate in sports and clubs. That is truly the best way of meeting people. Take advantage of all the on campus amenities such as counselor help, medical help and tutoring. Most importantly, have fun!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that shouldn't attend this school would be a person who wants a school with strong school spirit, a school that participates in sports with other schools on a high level. Somebody that wouldn't care about struggling to get classes due to the student to teacher ratio. Somebody that shouldn't attend this school would be a person that does not enjoy hot weather, somebody that doesn't want to drive to get everywhere necessary.

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

Definatley visit the campus. And the surrounding area. Think about what you want to study and if the area around the campus will help with your learning. The school might be great for your major but if the area doesnt emphasize it too you will never get any real world experience.

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

Lack of money. Public school so mny of the necessities are barely met. A few more resources would be nice.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The lack of facilities. Some of the colleges need more space and teaching materials to really make the experience awesome.

College opens roads that allow you to suceed in life. Therefore, finding the right college for you is one of the most important choices of your life. One of the best things to do is to start doing some research on the colleges you are interested in. Then after you have a couple of choices left, schedule a trip to go visit those colleges. I would recommend you to go when school is on session, or if you do no have the time go during the summer. During the summer there are some classes going on so you can take a peak into the classrooms, and see if you like the classroom and campus environment. After you have received your acceptance letters and decided which college you are going to attend, get ready to begin college life. College is not only about spending sleepless nights studying in the library, but also about making your life friends and having FUN! ENJOY!

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

Select a school that focuses on tangible life experiences and an integrated academic curriculum. The more a school can integrate learning between and among academic majors, the better graduates are able to understand and contribute to the goals of the organizations they work with. Likewise, internships, research fellowships, community programs, and similar activities that encourage students to "learn by doing" not only augment academic curiosity but also provide tangible experiences that are highly valuable to employers. Such programs allow students to get a step ahead while still completing their academic program.

What's unique about your campus?

The "Learn by Doing" motto. Internships and programs give purpose to your education and help your job prospects after graduating.

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

My advice to students when choosing a college would be to have a strong sense of self. If you have a strong sense of what your future plans will be you have a better idea of what you want to do in the future. That will narrow down schools that do not meet your criteria. Choose a school that can meet your academic needs and offer resources that can facilitate growth while making the most of your college experience. As a student seek out all the help, resources and guidance you can take in and help your fellow students do the same. College is about learning, sharing, educating and helping each other reach their goals. Throughout this learning process there will be many changes don't be discouraged. My advice to parents is to encourage their son or daughter to embrace and explore their independence. Lastly, I would say to students and their parents always keep an open line of communication, that is extremely important. College can be fun yet overwhelming so many students loose their way so, if you feel lonely connect. A support system through school can make the difference between success and failure, take time to connect.

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

That they were phasing out my major ! I found out after the fact. No one mentioned it prior to being excepted as a student for that term.

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

I bragg about a few of the professor's. The passion many have for what the do and believe in. Many of them give 110% to their students. Many haven't forgotten themselves what its like being a student and the balancing act it involves.
