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

If I could go back in time and give my high school senior self advice about college life I would tell myself a couple things. First, I would tell myself that I need to learn how to study. I knew college would be different but I didn't understand how much time I would have to dedicate to studying. Another thing I would tell myself is to be open to new people. I went though all my years at school basically knowing the same people and getting comfortable with them. In college, it's not like that. I didn't know anyone and at first it was really scary. I feel like if i would have been open more at first it would have made my transition a lot easier. Those are the two most important things I would tell myself if I had the chance.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Capital University would be the dedication of the professers. They are always avalible when you need extra help in their subject and they really love what they're doing.

This school is a lot small and you get more attention from the professors. The other students aren't stuck up here like they were at the other private schools I looked at.

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

The most important thing I could have told myself as a high school senior would be to be myself. People will like you for who you are, you don't have to act the way you think they want you to act. Being your own person is vital to making the right kind of friends. Pretending to be someone that you aren't won't serve you any good. Acting a certain way that isn't really you can get you sucked into a lifestyle that you never intended for yourself. Learning to say no and realizing your limits is so important. College gives you a lot of freedom which is nice, but don't forget that the reason you're here in the first place is to get an education. Nothing should come before that.

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

It's a little like high school, population wise. You see the same people all the time. The classes are also small so by the time you're a senior, there will only be a few people in your classes which can be a good or bad thing depending on your preferences.

Describe the students at your school.

They are very energetic and more than willing to go out of their way in order to make sure that you succeed in whatever it is that you are doing and are also very friendly and helped me to feel comfortable and open up to people in my major.

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

The one thing that I would tell myself is to find what you really want to do because this was the biggest reason that I did not go to a four year college right out of high school. I had no idea what I wanted to do and I was not concerned about it so I didn't go out of my way to try and find out what I wanted to do but thought it would come to me. The other piece of advice I would give myself is to get involved with campus clubs early because I did not find out about them until I had a couple of semesters left and some of these activites I could not get involved in because I had to have at least two years left. Not only that but so I could obtain a leadership position within these clubs and then I could put this on my resume.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is that people are very friendly and it's a very good environment that encourages you to go out and meet new people. I was not even in the dorms but I have met so many new friends that it has been really helpful in helping me adjust to the new lifestyle, finding classes and a good major, and interducing me to school activities to help me get involved.

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

Capital is so involved in the students' success and their lives in the college universe. They make tutoring and carreer services so accessible to any student because academic success and finding a job are incredibly important to students. Capital also offers so many on campus events. I feel like I always have something I can go to and spend time with my friends. They also offer many campus organizations. This is especially impressive because of the school size. The student with the most varied tastes will find something they enjoy at Capital.

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

Stay true to yourself and do what you want to do. Chosing a school and your future is YOUR business, not anyone elses. That is probably the most important thing. The second most important thing is to not get stressed out about it. Just take time to do some research and think about what you consider most important in your secondary education and go with that. Go on visits to the colleges that fit most of the criteria and decide from there. If you end up not being happy there, leave. No one is forcing you to stay somewhere that you hate because it's not worth getting depressed over. As far as adjusting to school goes, try as many activities and organizations as possible. When you find something that you really enjoy and are passionate about, you will start to feel like you fit in instantly. You need to find a place where you belong on campus or you will feel lost with no direction. But do not stop at one organization. Increase your experiences and friend circle by pursuing anything you have always wanted to try. College success is easy, you just have to know the right tricks.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing I can even think of is pretty trivial. We cannot charge our student accounts with things like bookstore purchases and visits to the health clinic that result in some sort of medication being handed out. It is frustrating I cannot go to the bookstore and charge my books, but the school makes it incredibly easy to withdraw leftover loan money, if you have any.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for it's excellence in academics. If i was to ask anyone about Capital University, they would tell me that it's a very good school. My school challenges it's students and prepares the students for success. With the small class sizes here, students are able to get one on one help with professors who care about the learning of their students. The environment at Capital is friendly and students feel very welcomed being on this campus. This school offers a lot of different organizations that enables you to become involved.

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

The advice I would give myself is learn to manage your time, attend every class, and pay attention. I would tell myself this because it's very important to finish all work on time. Many students come to college and think it's all fun and games, well it's not. In order to make it through college stress free, you must manage your time. An easy way of doing that is to carry a planner and write out everything that must be done as well as checking your planner on a daily basis. Staying ahead is the perfect way of not falling behind. Some professors reward those students who come to every single class and if you're not doing so well, this reward could benefit your final grade. Professors are more willing to help those students who pay attention and really apply their best effort. A professor may give you extra credit just because you're trying really hard. Managing time, attending class, and paying attention will lead you to succeeding in college.

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

You need to work hard in high school. I know high school seemed hard at the time, but it is nothing compared to how college is. There is always work to do, and the sooner you prepare yourself for the work and how to become a good student, the greater your success chances are. Make sure you go to EVERY class. The more class you miss, the lower your grade will be; not necessarily because of attendance points but because what you miss in lecture/lab you will not be able to understand on your own. Start working now for money for school, college is expensive! Between the tuition, books, resident life, and meal plans, there is a lot of money that goes into college. Look for scholarships! Save up money! And be excited to go to college to enhance your learning and prepare you for the real world, it's going to be a blast :)

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you like a large school with a huge party scene and a lot of emphasis on football games, you do not belong at Capital. Capital is a close-knit and small school which emphasizes liberal views and the arts rather than parties and athletic events.

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

My school is unique compared to others because it offers my major of Middle Childhood Education and allows for me to enter the classroom as a second year education student. The 21st century research and innovative methods of teaching enable me to reach students better; giving me a knowledge base that many other colleges do not offer. This allows for me to be a effective and change provoking educator.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself to stay focus, watch the company I keep and prepare ahead. As a high school senior it is really easy to get off focus with all of the senior activties and other outlets. When partcipating in these activities it is easy to neglect school work or slack off. By doing this your grades suffer affecting the amount of scholarships; less scholarships create more stress and headache your freshman year in college which takes away from your ability to focus and be succesful. Furthermore, I would warn myself about who I hang around. The company you keep determines a lot of what you do and shapes who you become; habits, thoughts, and views. This follows you to college because if you keep positive friends in high school you will keep positive friends in college thus helping you stay focused. Preparation is key. I would tell myself to stay organized and prepare ahead; do not wait until the last minute to do things. These things will help you become a more productive and well versed student in the college arena.

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

When telling my friends about Capital I brag about the campus activities as well as the size of the campus. The fact that the campus is smaller and so are classes is a big plus. Many of my friends attend large colleges where they receive little or no personal attention.

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

The advice I would had given myself was to stay on top of my grades. Other than that my attendance was great I had perfect attendance all 4 years. I got along with all my teachers. I was not a trouble maker in class. Back to the grades situation...I had an average B- in highschool. The crazy thing is I would study and still get B's and C's on test. I just didn't get it. Now that I'm in college that changed a whole lot. My first semester was pretty easy I got a 3.084 which I'm happy with. This semester I'm goign to try and make the Dean's List which you have to have a 3.4 so I almost made it. Also getting good grades meant to me scholarships! I could of used those being at a high price college. So I know now to stay on top of my grades to get scholarships to help pay for school. I really want to stay in school so I can persue my dreams!

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

The worst thing would be the food. The food may sound and look great, but its not all that great. Its just not season well or its burnt!

What kind of person should attend this school?

I don't think there should be a specific kind of person to attend this school. Although, if I had to choose a specific person then it should be a person who is dedicated and has their heart set on the school work. This school is a little on the expensive side so also someone who can keep up with their finances.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, knowing what I know now about college I would say study harder. I would have created better study tips and methods to help me through college. Knowing how to prioritize properly is a key thing when you are in college. Everyone wants to party and have fun, but you also have to know when it is the right and wrong time. I do pretty good with prioritizing, I just wish that I would have developed a better habit of studying and making sure everything gets done. Maybe I could have learned a little more about essays also, but having trouble studying gets me the most.
