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

For students and parents who are involved with choosing a college, I would strongly recommend that they weigh the price tag of the education against the quality of the education. Prestigious schools are not always the best choice, and one must consider the goals of the student in question, if they are actually reliant on this form of prestige. Statistically, anyone who excels in school will excel in the professional sphere and studies also show that public school graduates are more capable at nativating the "real world" than their private school contemporaries.

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

I wish I knew what it felt like to graduate with no debt so I would not have been apprehensive to begin with.

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

During these hard economic times it is very important to research schools that provide great education opportunities at affordable tuition rates. I think that there are state and city schools that are fantastic and can allow a student to get a great education at any socio- economic status. I am very forunate to live in New York where the state and city funded schools are some of the finest insitituions in the state. I would advise any of my peers to follow in my path and go to a school that is affordable yet also a great place to learn, and save yourself from years of debt.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are usually a very diverse bright bunch, mostly female though.

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

It would be great to get to know all the institution Hunter has to offer and the free services and the club rooms/events. Making friends is hard for me because of the large campus but most people are very friendly and try to figure out exactly what you want to do before choosing any school and see if the school of your choice is right for you.

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

What is right for one may not be right for another. The most important criteria in narrowing the school choices and getting the most out of your college experience is by getting a sense of idea of your expectations, and of what academic field you want to pursue. Also, research the school's general academic and your particular individual major requirements early. So you get an idea of the important classes to take, and therefore you will not be scrambling during senior year. However, the most essential advice that will enable your college experience to go smoothly and be quite richly rewarding academically and socially is by keeping an open mind of the experiences and the diversity you will surely encounter. Also, staying focus and time management plays a key role in organizing your academic and social priorities. It might seem like a lot of things to keep in mind, but before you know it you will be adhering to them without even noticing it. It is part of the college experience to adapt to whatever situation you are thrown in because it is just part of human nature to do so. Before you know it, you will be graduating.

What's unique about your campus?

The experiences I had over the course of my undergraduate career in this college is surreal. The amount of academic resources and student life venues are quite richly extensive. It is highly academically competitive, but would not preferred it being any other way. It pushes you to go beyond you perceived intellectual and social boundaries in order for you to reach your full potential and prepare you for the real world.

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

Focus on a school that offers a variety of programs in which the student is interested; almost everyone changes their focus at least once during their college career, and if they can do it without changing schools they are more likely to stay IN school. Extra curricular activities shouldn't be a high priority unless the student will have lots of time for them, or is particularly driven to participate in out-of-class programs. Success in school is linked to a student's interest in the academics, not whether they like how students party after hours. If the student isn't interested in their class work, they won't succeed no matter how good or bad the clubs and social environment is.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is lazy or wants to skate through their classes. Teachers don't tolerate laziness or obvious indications that you aren't doing the work. I can't speak much to the extra curricular activities because I've worked full time while going to school and therefore haven't had the time to participate in any.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Hunter is mostly attended by non-traditional students who work part or full time while pursuing their degree, often older students with families and/or children. Hunter isn't great at offering services to night/weekend only students, and class selection is sometimes limited, but if you plan your class schedule ahead and research previous class calendars, you can graduate on time. You have to be dedicated to your class work and willing to sacrifice personal desires to do well, but most teachers understand the average student's situation and are willing to work with you.

Visit schools so that you know what it is going to be like. Don't just pick a school that sounds good enough.

Someone that doesn't like Manhatten.

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

If you know your major and are coming to Hunter specifically for it, do not only see a general advisor as a freshman; also go to the department that you intend on majoring in and speak to them about the exact requirments you need in order to have a direct known path, or intention for the next 3 years you will spend at Hunter. A lot fo the students are not told this when they first come into the school, therefore, many of the students at Hunter are graduating a semester, even a year later than normal.

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

Believe it or not, college is an experience that I wish a lot more people would have. It is like no other, and you meet a lot of people who impart their knowledge on you. It is best to be supportive of a student in what they wish to do, or in helping them find a career best suited for them because 4 years goes by incredibly fast, and before you know it, you're one year away from graduating, and have not picked a major yet. It happens to a lot of people, and delays their graduation time. It is best to go into college with an open mind, not scared, not apprehensive, but with a rather embracing attitude. It honestly can be one of the best experiences of your life, and there is so much waiting for you at the college of your choice, the only thing you have to be worried about is, am I picking the right college for me that best serves my interests? Once you have researced, and found what fits you, then you should have no real worries, and just be resilient and ready to go head first into life.

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

Adivising, and administration are the worst at Hunter. They do not tell you what you need to know, you have to find out everything yourself. It is easy to mess up, or go in the wrong direction due to lack of assistance. It is quite upsetting, and the best thing to do is to find out all the information you can from the beginning so there are no surprises or you aren't missing any last minute requirements.

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

I would say to make sure the college fits your personality. It should contain acitvities that interest you, as well as class and or programs that interest you. Faculty and staff should also be helpful and accessible as new or transfer students are helpless. When attending school, you should be able to look forward to going and being there. So make sure you choose the school that you like and not what anyone else tells you.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is hard working and determined. As well as someone who doesnt have a job orsocial life, because the professors think their class is the only one you are taking.
