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

Ask current students what they think of the college. They know the best about the college and will most likley give a non-baised view. Visit the colleges and compare what they have to offer. Take care of the financial aid situation before the start of the semester. There are way to many students that are freaked out when they find out the owe the school $4,000 because their financial aid didn't go through. Do not pick a college based on where friends are going. Statistically, students do not keep their same friends in college. Find a college that is involved with students!

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

The high acceptance level. There are a lot of students here who do not deserve to be in college and only want to party. They come to the school as freshmen, fail and don't come back.

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

The ethnicity of the students and faculty is so diverse. There are students that have chosen to attend this university from all over the world. It has small student to professor ratio which helps immensly.

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

To research each college that you have selected and see what the differences are and if it suits your needs to succeed.

Describe the students at your school.

The less motivated are to be avoided because they slack off and drag you down, but the good students are up-beat and interesting and make good friends or study partners.

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

Prepare for college by first applying for scholarships and government-supplied financial aid, as this step - though tedious at times - will remove monetary stress and allow for more time to enjoy classes and learning (take student loans as a last resort). Buy and sell textbooks online to save money while helping other students in your same situation (schools like to sell high and buy low, a negative impact on students). Above all, apply to as many colleges as you can; don't feel restricted by state boundaries, because college is about experiencing new things and seeing new places. If moving to a new state for a college seems like a challenge (or staying in your current state while family moves to a new one), know that schools are willing to work with you and on-campus living is usually quite affordable. Be sure to follow your dreams and do everything in your power to attain your goals; don?t let circumstance make your choices for you. Your main priority as a college student should be to improve the world and enhance the lives of others by your efforts - be confident in asking for assistance and laugh off the little worries.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is intimidated by large cities or fast traffic would find this town and school to be a good match - it's a slow-moving, slow-talking place. It is also very rich in Hispanic culture, which is a bit artistically restrictive (if it's not Hispanic, it's not art here). Students who want a "close community" would like it. Everyone knows everyone's business.

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

The choice to go to college is the smartest idea one can make for their future, however the college experience can either make or break the desire to finish with a much needed degree. There are literally thousands of stresses that batter the mind of a high school senior about where to continue their education, how they are going to pay for it, will they meet new friends, are classes hard and of course will I be prepared to be successful in the world ahead. To prepare for college the financial situation (how is school going to be paid for) should be addressed first and foremost. Lots of stress can occur when a student finds themself needing a certain book, not having money for food or activities with friends, needing certain lab equipment or even worrying about the final bill at the end of each semester. Making sure your financial needs will be met with either financial aid or the availability of a job should be the main focus. I soley believe anyone can be successful with a degree from any college/university, I just don't want to be paying for it the first few years of my career.

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

I wish I would have known that the financial aid that I was receiving and the job that I am working while living at home, still do not cover all the expenses I need to cover.

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

I generally brag about the mass communications department. I have seen a great deal of successful people come from that department.

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

I wish I had spent more time looking for the right school for me: researching online, taking campus tours, etc. I think that I chose my school out of convenience rather than the best fit, which has worked out ok, but I feel like I missed out on a lot.

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

That there is little to no campus life; it is such a commuter school. It's not as bad as I thought it would be though. The academics are really challenging (well, in my major anyway).

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

We currently just got our football program back after 40 years, I believe it was. That is the newest popularity of our school, But we have one of the best automotive programs in the state and I am currently about to be enrolled in the nursing program, we have a very good nursing program as well.

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

Some advice that I would give students about finding the right college and making the most of their college experience is to find a field that they are passionate about. The school you choose, where ever you will go will be an experience. Hopefully a good one. Be passionate for something, whether it being art, teaching, or even microbiology, make the best of the facilities at the college, join a club, expand your horizons. Ideas have consequences whether they are good or bad consequences. Take something from every idea that you have, every experience you are in. Reach out and touch others' lives, everyone you meet will in some way touch your heart, allow it to. What is the "right" college? that is something for you to decide. What are you passionate about? Go where your passion abounds in that college. One final piece of advice I could give for making the most out of your college experience is don't just talk to people, listen, not just hear, listen. go CSUP!

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

Pick a school size that fits with the students own personal style. If they prefer smaller classes and they go to a large university, they may feel insignificant and detached from the school. Find a school that also coincides with the students own personal social style. A school that is known for partying will not work for a student who is dedicated to their studies. Finally, pick a school that is known for the particular department that the student is hoping to major in. When the faculty is well educated and passionate about their work, then the student will ultimately find their own passion and make the most of the years they are there.

What's unique about your campus?

The campus is small but just big enough to allow people to meet every one. The class sizes also allow students to meet other students and gain those friendships and others to study with, and it also allows students to get to know their professors, which ultimately helps them later in their college years.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

They are currently still building our new dorms, therefore most of us are living in hotels since they did not have enough rooms for all of us living on campus.

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

Be sure to do your research before you choose your school. This research includes personal and educational research. I wish I would have known myself more before I chose the first university to attend. Make sure the major you've chosen is the one you will stick with for four years. APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS! Talk to your professors; they have the power to help you get into some amazing programs and opportunities.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that enjoys a smaller town, a smaller school, and a smaller number of students in each class. There are a lot of farmers and agricultural students that attend this school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I wish it wasn't located in the suburbs. I wish it were closer to the city and had more apartments for students to choose from.

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

Its not all about binge drinking and partying. Find a smaller campus, with small class sizes. There is more one on one interaction with the professors, they know your name most of the time. Your not just a number to them. It makes things so much easier. And its generally less expensive too. Expensive schools aren't everything. You can get the same education just about any where.
