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

Visit the college on a busy school day and just talk to people. Walk up to them, tell them that you are considering the school and ask them what they think. People understand what a big decision it is and will be happy to tell you what they like and dislike about their school. Professors and students, when not being watched by anyone from the administration, have no vestid interest in promoting their school to those whom it will not be a good match for. Therefore they are an invaluable resourse for you. An added bonus to doing this in person is that you can see what the campus is like, who is there, what's the energy of the place, the style, the vibe, etc.

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

I wish I knew to get involved in more social groups. Outside the clubs, there really is not much going on on campus, and therefore little opprotunity to meet people. A good social life requires that you take the first step.

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

It is overcrowded. Class size is not too bad, 30-40 for most classes. But the hallways and elevators and escalators are all always stuffed to capacity. They need more space, or fewer students. Also, they need more fulltime professors. I had many excellent Adjunct Proffessors, but it itsn't fair to them to be denied a full time job.

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

In the end It will be all about you. Don't ever pick a school entirely because of its fame or prestige or educational offerings. The very first thing one should do is take a tour or maybe an overnight visit. Engage and interact with your tour hosts and others about the offerings of the school beyond academics. I began Hunter College determined to study biology but soon after my old love for films turned into a passion. Through my classes and interacting with other students and my professors I have sinced become a film major with a bright outlook on the future!

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

Although Hunter College has an estimated 14,000 Student body, there are only 4 buildings. As a result, finding the right courses are always a painful process.

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

The first thing I would say to students is to not put all your eggs in one basket. You may not get into your dream school and even though it may hurt, its not the end. You can either apply again or if not your alternative school may actually be something you like. For parents they must remember that even though academics is a big part of college, remember that college is about networking and making friends as well. If your child commutes to college encourage them to go out and joina club or a team. It makes commuting a little less dull and makes their college experience worth wild.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Signing up for a class you want before its filled. Crowdedness. Finding a Boy that I actually like.

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

Each college is different. You (the parent and most importantly the student) needs to go to the campus and "feel" for the college. Check out the ups and and downs of the college. Look at the programs, and not just the programs that you (the student) wants to be in the future, but the all the courses in general -- because you can always change your major while you're there. Talking to other students, especially the freshmen and seniors of the school. Get pros and cons of the school. And always look at the job offers that the school will help you after graduation. And do not forget, that college should be fun,

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

The different kinds of people that I have met through out the years that I was there. You never know who's going to be your new friend, and you'll never know how they may help you in the long run.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who likes the busy, city life. Though the school may seem fast-paced, there will be people who are willing to help you and help you open your network. This new network will even help you in classes in the future. They should be also be open minded in what they doing and try out the different club/groups that the school has to offer.

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

Visit the college and make sure that it is right for you. If your child wants to go somewhere, don't rule it out because it is out of your comfort zone. If he or she visits and doesn't think it's the right choice, that is his or her decision. Remember that it isn't up to you, it's up to your child.
