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

It focusses on getting you prepared for your intended career faster than a 4 year college. It is a smaller college than some I have considered so you get more personal classroom setting.

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

Don't wait to go to college. They aren't as impossibly hard as some say. Also save up some money so you dont have to live paycheck to paycheck

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

Upon meeting my high school self, I would ask that he don't sweat the breakup that occurred in my Senior year to a girl I deemed to be "the one". I would explain that there would be other girls and I would eventually marry one, however, there would be only one chance to have a respectable GPA upon leaving high school. By giving her up, I could preserve my B average GPA, instead of dropping to a C. The second matter I would discuss with my younger self would be wait before attending college. Even though I'd originally wanted to pursue computer programming from a young age, I wasn't prepared for what it meant to be in that field, and the friends I would meet after high school that made me drop out the first time to rethink my plan. My young self would savor that summer and study the subject of computers until he could go back to apply himself without distractions. Hopefully it wouldn't demand another decade to fulfill. Lastly, I would tell him to avoid Brown College in the cities, it costs too much.

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

The teachers in my program all come from the same background that they are teaching about. They are able to paint a picture of how the applications we study will apply to the real world. It's also great that our classes are small and hands on. If a student needs help on an assignment, the teacher can walk over within minutes to assist them. I was also able to find an internship due to a job seeking service the school offers students.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing is the fact that it's a tech college. I sometimes feel that in order to make the money and get the career that I want, I need to to get a bacholors degree, which I am pretty sure I don't want. At this time, it's too early to know how the degree will assist me, but if I had to pick something, this is it.

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

If i could go back in time and talk to myself, I would want to be the first person to help prepare myself for the stress to come. As far back as middle school, there were people telling me to be ready and think of what's ahead. I would have been better prepared if i knew what i was getting myself into. I recall being easily distracted and relying on my friends for support, but the future was so clouded with mystery at the time. If i were to talk to my past self, i would have told myself to get all the college forms and payments ready early, and not to fear the future to come. If i had atleast i step in the door, i would be ready to overcome the rest of the journey with confidence and less fear.

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

First, I would tell myself not to worry about which schools I would be best for. Ultimately, you will find youself in the right place, wherever that might be. As long as you follow that indescribable curiosity and passion that we all possess as human beings you will find your way. I would tell my younger self that once you find yourself on campus, take a minute to soak it all in. While high school was spent blindly fumbling about to reach some idea of who you are, this is the time to define who that might be. Some things you want to be are gracious, kind and fearless in your pursuit of happiness and fullfillment. Every minute of every day from this point onward marks one less moment you will have in this life on this Earth. This isn't morbid, but a motivator to make every one of those minutes count, in any way they can. Stay focused, but don't forget to enjoy yourself. Whatever you do, don't be affraid. There's more than you'll ever be able to fully understand in the world and you're lucky enough to be a part of it.

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

CLARIFICATION: I graduated from UW Stout & attend CVTC - awaiting acceptance into Physical Therapy grad school. If I were able to give my high school self a chunk of wisdom, I'd tell myself to just relax and enjoy the ride. Life was tough enough before college. After losing a brother to cancer, college should be easy, just like everything else after that experience. Don't take school, life, work or people too seriously! Be self-disciplined, work hard and reach for goals and passions, but try to appreciate each experience along the way! It all goes by so very quickly, as we already know. Life can and does change in a heartbeat! So, give all you've got, but not to yourself. Give to others first! That is the key to life. Getting out of ourselves gives us opportunities and experiences that we wouldn't ever dream of otherwise! So, reach out to help someone, guide someone and love someone along the way! Their life will be enhanced, even changed, and yours will be, too! Be the life-changer for others. That is the guaranteed way to make the greatest, most rewarding life of all...even for yourself!!

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

I have taken so many wrong turns in my life that I have no clue as where to becane with my self at that age. Hmmmmm let me see.... i do not know what i could have said back then that whould have changed my thought of contining my schooling. I was a very "mixed" up person at that age.I would like to hope that I could walk up to my younger self look him dead in the eye, and tell him how much of a lost it would be for him not to continue his education for atleast four more years. Hope that he listens good.

What kind of person should attend this school?

All kinds of person should addend this school for several reasons, i'll just sum it up: This school has so much diversity there is truly a little bit for all, If you are a person this is the school.
