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

I believe that Carson-Newman is unique through the amount of community service done by students, the friendliness exuded by students and facutly, and the close knit, family feeling overall. I went to a big school my freshman year (Middle Tennessee State University) and was miserable by how small I felt. CN truely fosters a feeling of worth and confidence in their students.

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

I would suggest that a student should, first and foremost, involved and not stay locked away. I hid my first year and was very unhappy. Once I forced myself to experience the orientation activities of my new school and become more involved with things that interest me, I met people, got close to others and really grew. I also suggest that students consider moving to a school away from home. C-N is 4 hours away from my home, far for some andd too close for others. It was too far initially, but being away from my family forced me to grow up and support myself. I feel confident in beginning a career through the experiences with people and life situations I experienced in college. It's a difficult and challenging path to begin on, but if a person will just open themselves up to new people and learn to rely on themselves and God, college can be the most rewarding time of your life.

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

I tell them how wonderful the people are, how caring and supportive the professors are and the beauty surrounding the school. It's a small town so you really have to develop your own fun.

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

Parents should let go of their children and let them live a day in the life of a college student at that school. They will know if it is the right school for them. You have to remember that you are making a decision that will affect the next four years of your life and if you do not like the school you are at then those four years may not be as memorable as you would have hoped. Be careful and choose wisely. There are over 4,000 schools in the nation and one of them is bound to suit your style.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is looking for a school where you are not just a face in the crowd, but you are someone in the classroom. If you are looking to have a close personal realtionship with your professors and have them really care about how well you do in their classes then this school is for you.

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

I feel that they are very behind in technology and are very disorganized. I like to be positive and believe they are trying to make a difference, but they have a very poor web based program and very little space to study. If you go to the library, the students are loud especially at night. You cannot register online and they make you see advisors that need help to register you themselves. When I first came here, I was told I would be able to work while in the program and they would be flexible with my schedule; this is simply not true. I feel that I have had a better quality education at a larger institution.

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

Because Carson-Newman is a Baptist affiliated school, there is minimum negative influences and tons of positive entertainment. This does not mean the school is exclusive, however, people of all beliefs or non-beliefs are welcome here. Other positives are the small class sizes (generally none over 30 students), and the small, easily navigated campus.

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

When applying to colleges, one of the most important things is to keep track of all your documents and have everything mailed in by the due date. A visit to the campus is also necessary, and if you can, try going on a non-visiting day. This allows you to get a feel of what the campus is like the majority of the time. Another good idea is to stay a night in one of the dorms with a student. If they are majoring in the same thing you want to major in, ask them to show you around their department. You may even get to meet some of the professors. Time management is the key to making the most of your college experience. It can be difficult to balance homework, friends, and sleep, but if you do it right these can be the best years of your life. If you make sure to set aside specific times for sleep, eating, and homework, then you'll have plenty of time to make friends and spend time with them. I've made all of my best friends at school. Keep a positive attitude and you'll have a great college experience.

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

Encourage them to talk to students who are not part of the commitees to attract new students to the school. Have the student visit the school during a time of year when not a lot of new students are visiting to get a good idea of what the campus life is really like, because after one, two, or three years, it can get really boring and depressing if there's nothing to do. Find a school that doesn't do things in order to "get rid" of the students that professors see as weak links, find a school who encourages and pushes students to do their best in a positive manner.

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

How the professors of the nursing program "weeded" the students out who they thought couldn't make it through in order to maintain a state boar pass rate instead of encouraging and helping them along. The students are very much on their own then it comes to motivation. Also, that the only time there were fun things to do on campus was when the new students came for orientation.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is only looking for an academic experience and is not overly concerned with the social aspect of college.

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

Students should go and visit the college before they apply or before they commit to the school. While there, they should speak with Financial Aid in order to see how much help they will need. The earlier you start looking the better. In order to make the most of your experience while in college, I suggest that you do every possible social activity possible on campus. Make lots of friends and have study groups with people in your class. Go to all the sporting events and show your team spirit. Also, never be afraid to go to your professor with a problem... you might just benefit from it. Parents, encourage your student with their college decision. Help them to be informed. Once your child is at school, always be encouraging. Never put your child down despite mistakes. They have to learn how to grow up on their own. Do your best to help them however you can. Negativity is a definite NO NO!!!!! All that will do is stress out your child and they will not appreciate the added stress.

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

I think the worst thing about my school is the cafeteria food. Also, I do not agree with the school when it comes to the football program because the football players can get away with anything they want just because they are on the team which is really unfair to those who work hard and do not get the special privledges.

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

I tell my friends that it is a great place to meet friends. I also tell them that I love most of my classes and that I met the most wonderful man ever at CN, my fiance. I also tell them that the school has a lot of social activities to help people make friends especially for freshman.

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

The advie I have for parents is to be there for their children and help them out, but let your child pick the school and major and surrport them no matter what thier choice is. I adive students to reach for their goals. Never give up! Even if you reach for that school you always wanted to go to since freshman year of high school, but find you changed your mind. Do not be discourage. Just keep trying, as long as you try you will find the school that best fits you. To make the best of the college experience is to try to find a find a good healthy blance of school, work, a socical life, and sleep (health). Do get involed and always try your best. As long as you feel you have done your best you will awlays feel happy about your college experience. If you do get stressed out there is always help on any campus. Do not be afaid to ask or seek for help. If you are willing to help your self people are going to be willing to help you. I wish you the best and remeber always follaw your heart.

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

Don't worry too much about whether or not you have chosen the PERFECT college; your college experience will be what YOU make of it, no matter where you go. Through the influence of both new knowledge and new friends you will grow and change personally and professionally. At Christian colleges especially you must be careful to keep an open mind at all times--not to abandon your religion, but to grow in it and make it your own. Sign up for classes you don't have to take--even classes you don't expect to enjoy--you will learn the most from them. And finally, remember that you will ultimately measure your college experience not by your GPA or transcript or even the number of people you "friended" on facebook, but by what you learned about the world, and what you discovered about yourself.

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

The overwhelming attitude of closed-minded conservatism.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A conservative Christian--or someone who likes stirring up trouble.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Carson-Newman College has some fantastic qualities, but my opinion is that they don't help the students that cannot give a certain amount of money back to the school, and have full time jobs, like myself.... for fiancial aid, ive tried and tried to go to them for help, and they give me the run around and i've owed each school year, because I work full time, I got to school full time, it seems like with Carson Newman, you cannot win for losing.

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

Find what major your son/daughter is interested in persuing throughout life, and find the school that fits best with their lifestyle. For examples, the size of the class rooms, different teachers, and how large the campus is. Also, know what scholarships are available, becuase you want to go to the school that interest you, but also is going to pay for some of your school, because when you get out of college, you do not want extreme amount of student loans. Before you enroll, go to the school and check out there campus and see what the school is about. That will be the best way for you to know if you are truely interested in attending that college or university.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Their is no individual that shouldn't attend Carson Newman College because everyone has the right to attend any college or university they choose to better themselves throughout their own life.
