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

Parents and students should consider the whole package. Instead of focusing just on the reputation of the school, or the academic courses the school offers for their students, they should consider location, financial aid, professors, community, and resources. Sometimes great things come in small packages so its a matter of sacrifice and priorities. Consider what is more important, parties or academics; location or size, financial aid or support community for students. Food/meal plans are also important because if there's few selections, you have nothing to eat by the second year there...nutrition = energy = good grades = happy students.

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

I wish that I would have known what I want to major in instead of exploring and taking so many different courses.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who dont like the city or the city environment should consider the location of the school. It is in the heart of Manhattan. It is convenient but at the same time, lacks the community feeling that you may have at a community college in a suburban location.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Very diverse student body receiving a very affordable liberal arts education, where some are there to try hard, and others slack off.

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

Visit, and if you're thinking about going there seriously, visit again. Think about cost, location, what type of degree you can get from the school versus what you might like to study. And most importantly -- don't stress out about it.

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

Not a "community." But that's if you're looking for it. It depends on the person.

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

First things first, know your schools! It's one thing to visit, its a whole different ball game when your there full time. Once satisfied with your school environment, make sure your happy with the surrounding area. If given the chance, chat it up with the faculty as they will for the most part determine the ease of your transition (try to see how edgy they are... an overworked and annoyed faculty fortells of future dilemmas). If you would like to join a team, do so your freshman year, much easier to get on a team that way (cannot stress this enough). Be careful with your new crew, they could make you or break you. Finally, BE FINANCIALLY PREPARED! With universities these days...anything goes, especially with the current state of our economy, a lot of unforseen expenses arrise when the schools "need money" (that includes, rising tuition, shorter deadlines, and less financial aid.) With all this in mind... have a blast, because it could be your last chance to find out who YOU really are and what YOU can really bring to the table, no matter what table appears.

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

Parents, please don't try to push your kids toward your own wishes and dreams. Think about what your kids would like to be instead. Their choices may not make much sense to you, but the decision is theirs in the end, they would have to live with it, so please give them room to think and decide for themselves what and how their future would start. Students: Take advice from your parents and elders, but think hard about what is being said before maing your decision based on these said advices. Think about what you've dreamed about becoming when you were 10, think about what makes you happy, and about what elements of life are most important to you before making that big decision of where to spend the next few years of your life. Go with your instincts, don't let anything hold you back from what you want. And try o have fun in the meantime.

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

It may be very crowded at times, and not every can be friendly. There are some dowright rude and inconsiderate people, but then these exist in the real world.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Hunter is probably best known for being a forward-thinking school, once of the first and best schools for women, of whom there is still a majority.

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

I think that students and parents should try to truthfully assess what the student wants and needs in a school as far as campus size, urban vs. rural, the professors available, areas of interest and financial aid available. As far as making the most of the experience, it's up to the student to decide how much social interaction he or she wants and needs as opposed to study time and research space.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Very liberal, forward thinking individuals seem to do well here. We also have a strong nursing program so many career-oriented students study here.

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

Students: Simply put, college is a learning experience, so take risks and follow your heart. Just dont waste that freedom following other people. Follow your heart to find your inner independent adult. Parents: Keep your child well informed about what to expect in college and what they are responsible for obtaining upon their graduation.

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

I wish I knew what my chosen major/career was so I could begin on its mandatory course track immediately.

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

The worse thing about my college is the fact that not all professors take advantage of resources meant to bridge the gap in communication with their students and when confronted about this, they can't seem to understand how helpful these resources are to various students.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Hunter is a very populous university in a vertical campus where you can acheive a stellar education for a reasonable price, and never regret your choice.

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

It is important, if not necessary, as a prospective college student to ask yourselves what you WANT in a college degree, not only why you feel you may NEED it. College, however you imagine it, or however it is portrayed to you prior to enrollment, will live up to that expectation. If you focus your attention on what you want out of your experiences, you will discover your perfect university. I do not believe my friends knew what they wanted for themselves in a college, and allowed their parents to force them towards a school or major they did not know they would hate. Now there is much resentment among my friends (many of whom have dropped out) and their parents. As prospective students, you will waste less time, money and stress by self-reflecting on personal goals. As parents, this is a crucial period in which to be generous with your time and advice, while being wary of taking on too much decision-making. Allowing your soon-to-be college students the thinking space to make their own choices is imperative to their success. "Whether you think you can, or think you cannot, you are probably right." ? Henry Ford

What's unique about your campus?

The diversity. I enjoyed feeling like a little fish in a big sea. There are so many people at the school. So much to learn from them. There are many international students I have become friends with. I love the people at this school because they , or their parents, are not spending a lot of money to go there so you know the real reason they are enrolled is for the education not the school's name. The professors are so well educated themselves. I always had masters and doctors as professors with the rare exception.

Don't pressure your child to go to school in an environment they are not comfortable with and are not eager to engage in. Each person deals with school academically and socially in different ways and one has to be sensitive to these concerns. For all you prospective students, it is important to visit your campus before you enter it, to sit in on a class and listen to the interaction between the professor and the students and to assess the quality and general atmosphere of the school community. Make sure to assess your school not solely in terms of academic setting but also the types of opportunities that can stem from your time at your college. This can include the availiability of professors who are experts in their fields, as well as resources for finding stimulating jobs and internships so that when you graduate you stand out in both the academic and work field. If you need financial aid, make sure to really invesigate what options the school has for financial aid and other merit scholarships. Also, look into other websites such as "fastweb" to better understand your options for scholarships.

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

no community as it is a commuter school and people have to balance various jobs with school. People come to school to egt a degree not to learn.
