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

My advice would be to make sure that the advisors at the school know what they are doing and know the direction that your child is going in. Make sure the school is what the student wants but also agree with the parent. Find a school that really meets the students interests. Students should live on campus at least the first year to really get the college experience then move off campus to find out what it is like to really live on your own.

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

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

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

Visit the colleges that you are looking at and talk to some of the students at the college. If you are able sit in one or two of the classes that are offered at the college to see if the class is what you expected. If sports are your interest talk to the coach and some of the players on the team, go to a few games and practices if you can.

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

In finding the right college you really need to think about what you want to study and the kinds of settings you want to be in. I made the mistake of being indecisive in my major and have to transfer because I decided I want to study something the school I go to doesnt offer. The key thing is to be happy with the people you are around. I enjoy my school I love the small setting and the area its in. When chosing schools dont look at them as,"oh I can afford this", or "oh, this is not an option its too expensive", look at all schools as, "what can this school offer me?" Always apply, go look at the school, see what it offers for classes, and expierences you probably couldnt get anywhere else. The best advice I can give is always stick to choosing the school you think you will be happiest at. In order to do well and learn to ones full potential you need to be happy in an envrionment that fits you best.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People that like small classes and know what they want to do.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

there a serveral that have changed over time, some of which include the two fraternities one of which im in, the nationally ranked hockey team, the new football team we just started this year, which i started playing, and how enviromentally active the college is.

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

There are a few factors that affect finding the right college for a student which include the cost/financial aid, the majors offered, location, and simply going to visit a college and getting the feeling of it. a student and their parents want to be able to pay for college so looking at the price and what finanical aid is available is important. In my situation i knew what i wanted to do, so i was looking for a college that had my major and was a good program. some students want to go away others want to stay close to home so finding how far you want to go makes an impact. the other factor is simply going to colleges and failing in love with the college that feels best for the student. this is my advice to all parents and students, i hope it helps.

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

Find a college where your child will feel like they belong and where they feel they can grow to be a better person. Be sure campus security has a prominant role in campus activities. Find a school were your child's professors are not only teachers but have the potential to be mentors for life.
