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

I would say to myself Denise stop being lazy and leave the things that aren't helping you to get closer to your goal. don't let your friends change your mind for the goals you have.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any kind of person because they have everything for every body. From people who don't who don't speak the language to people who haven't been in school for years like me.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

its dual degree program with major four year colleges and universities in the city.

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

Stay focused on studying and don't party too much. Keep your goals posted on your wall and don't let anyone tell your it's corny or even unacheiveable. Always finish what you start and stay postive through the tough times. Don't let work consume you and do not study with friends. Finally, IT'S OK TO BE A NERD!

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

My school is unique in that it allows all students (graduate and undergraduate) to take classes on a level playing field. Students aren't penalized for having a degree already; rather that is an asset.

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

I would give myself lots of advice, the first piece being don't go to an expensive school to start. Community colleges offer the same introductory classes for a much better price. Second - look for scholarships. You don't want to be in a position where you can't pay loans. Third - study. Commuting makes this easier, since you can work at home and not have the distractions of campus life all around you. Before you choose a major, find out what the demand will be long-term. It's great that the job market is open while you're in school, but that doesn't help, because you can't get a job in your field until you have that degree. If you can't find a job in your field, then get another degree in another, different but related field. It will be difficult, but it can be done.

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

The worst thing about my school would have to be the neighborhood. I would not want to be there alone after dark.
