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

You really need to trust your gut feeling. I made so many lists of pros and cons when I was trying to decide, but I always ended up coming back to my first choice. There was just always this feeling that this was the right place for me. Whatever college you compare all others to is clearly the best fit. You really do need to visit a lot of campuses though, I think the more places you can see and compare, the clearer the decision becomes. Just don't question your decision based on the concerns of your friends or family because YOU are the one who is going to be at that school for the next four years. It doesn't matter what anyone else has to say about it, as long as it is the right place for you!

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

It will seem odd, but I believe parents and students should forget about jobs! We should not attend school to simply get a good job! We should be attending school to get a great education! Knowledge these days is power, so make it happen! Figure out if you want to be in a city or not, and then go to a school that focuses on the importance of learning and mastering concepts found within the industries your interested in.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is very open minded and is willing to get out of their comfort zone should attend this school. Also, the person should be prepared to work very hard because Dartmouth College is not EASY!!!!!! That individual will NOT float through. He or she will be definitely be demanded academically. On another note, the person must understand that they are making an investment. As much as the work can be demanding, you could easily choose to learn nothing. The person must be eager to learn, to live life abundantly, to meet interesting and smart people, and to have fun!

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

I brag about how endless the opportunities are on campus and how easy it is to learn and meet people on campus.

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

If you can, visit the colleges you are interested in. Ask current students the questions you have; they can offer a more candid (and perhaps honest) perspective of a student's experience than the employees in the admissions office. Walk around the campus and ask yourself, 'Can I imagine myself here?' Visit the academic departments you are interested in, butr remain open to studying and exploring topics and ideas that may not seem immediately interesting or important to you. Don't be afraid to try new things, some of the most important college learning experiences happen outside the classroom. Remember that your professors are people, too! Visit them during office hours to talk about your class, and offer to take them out for a cup of tea to talk about life.

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

There are a few things to take into consideration. First and foremost, have a plan to finance your education, be it through loans, scholarships, or out of pocket. Secondly, winnow your list down. Eliminate schools that are in locations that are undesirable or significantly above/below your GPA/SAT range. Third, relax! No one knows at 18 what he wants to do with his life. Realize that majors are flexible and colleges are accomodating. Take that class about Egyption history or study that foreign language you're curious about. Join a sports team or club. Find clubs or organizations that interest you. College offers everything possible to you at the least risk possible - take advantage of it while you still have that freedom once you're in.

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

The cold. It's freezing and makes attending class difficult in the middle of winter.

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

I would recommend visiting a lot of different campuses so you can get a good idea of what it is you are looking for in a school. Things such as size, location, resources, campus setting, academic specialties, foreign study opportunities, and research or liberal arts focus are all important aspects to consider. It is also important to know what sort of student body you want to associate with, since the people you go to college with have a huge impact on your experience. That said, don't be afraid to go out of your comfort zone and try something new; I left the West Coast for New England knowing no one, and in turn met a lot of people with a worldview completely different from my own. Keep in mind that college is as much about what you learn out of the classroom as in the classroom. Lastly, consider alumni networks and career placement opportunities from your college of choice. While it may sound like a shallow thing to consider, choosing a college with a strong alumni network can help you not only become part of a tight community during college, but after graduation as well.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone that likes city life, people that don't like the outdoors, people that don't like the cold

What kind of person should attend this school?

Positive, enthusiastic, likes the outdoors, open minded, motivated, outgoing, athletic

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

I would recommend that both parents and students find a college that they feel comfortable at. Obviously the ultimate decision should be that of the student since they will be the one spending their time at the college but parental input is important. Find a place where the people are supportive and welcoming. People, whether it be the students, administrators or professors, make or break the college experience. While at college it is important to prioritize. Become involved and get the most out the entire experience. College should be just that, an experience. Remember what is important to you and strive to reach those goals. Best of luck and enjoy!

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

Take college tours and go to the available information sessions. Ask lot of questions, too. Make sure that when you get on campus, you can picture yourself living there for four years. Once you're inrolled in a college, remember that it's not just about the schoolwork. Don't hide away in the library studying all the time. Joing clubs, have lunch dates, and go to parties, even if you don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. Socialiazing in a HUGE part of the college experience, so live it up!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about this school is the amazing people that you meet. A big part of the college experience is to meet new people, people who may become lifelong friends. Dartmouth makes this easy with all of the activities for freshman as well as upperclassmen. I met over 100 people my first year at Dartmouth, and I've made friends that are incredible. I can't believe that I know people who are so fun, brilliant, etc!
