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

If I could go back as a high school senior and talk to myself the advice I would give would be to set a career goal. Coming out of high school I did not have that goal and I felt like I wasted my time for a while wondering what I wanted to do. Now I am older and I know that it is crucial that I focus on my future and set a specific career goal and stay on track with it. I believe that I am more successful now academically because I have set a career goal and I am sticking with it. Even though I have since graduated from high school I still give advice to family, friends as well as random people who are in high school and need direction I encourage them to stay focused on what it is that they want. Time is of the essence, and I feel the sooner someone knows what they want as far as a career goal the better they can feel toward there future.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who should not attend this school are those who are not ready to make a commitment for there future. I feel that if someone is an individual who does not know what they want to do yet as far as a career than this may not be the school for them.

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

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

Your senior year in high school is a wonderful time and a time to make plans and decisions. There's a common misconception that once you've made it to your senior year senior grades don't matter. That is incorrect! Colleges do request and review senior grades, especially from the first half of the school year. Continue to take pride in your grades and continue to attempt your best. Planning is an essential aspect of the college experience. And because getting ready for college starts while you are in high school, you will need to begin even earlier to allow you the time to take care of all the details while keeping up with your regular schoolwork. The first step you need to do is meet with you counselor before you submit any college applications. The second step is to fill out the applications, write essays if you need to, get letters of recommendation, set up to have your test scores sent to the schools and get appropriate transcript information. The last step is to fill out scholarships and apply for as many as you can, you will need all the money you can get to pay for college.

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

I consider the classroom as the worst thing about my school. The reason why is because the classroom are a bit small and the desk is too small and cramped but it's not in all the classes. In some class, there's table size desk. They should have it in all the classroom.

Aaron would prepare to study as twice as hard. Considering, that the coursework in college will be much harder work than high school was. He will began to develop study groups with fellow classmates. Aaron will need to get a head start in completing all the assingments on time but, in a timely-manner. Aaron also will need to pay close attention to make sure that he is able to grasp all the material the instructor is given. On the other hand, he will addressed his attention to what the instructor is saying. Aaron will need to sit in front of the class to make sure that he doesn't miss any key points the instructor gives. Futhermore, he will need to take a lot of notes on major concepts for the course that the instructor gives. Aaron always needs to be on time so, that he doesn't miss any important material. Moreover, he haves to become very involve in raising his hands to make sure he is on track with the instructor.

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

Transition between high school and college life is a life changing experience. The one thing that I've learned through this college experience is that you have to be in control with your life and be able to manage your time between work and school. If your time management is weak, you are not going to do well in college. Make sure that you don't have so many jobs while going to college because you'll see that there will be no time to finish the research paper or any other class assignments. You would end up retaking the class, and spending more money for the class you already tried to take. Not only is time management is important, but setting some goals is important. Just set some short-term and long-term goals in order to get where you want to be in 5 years or so. You'll find out that time management and setting goals will be helpful in your college life. Take the time to do these, and good things will happen.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the class sizes, hands on experiments, and helpful academic advisors. With the smaller class sizes, there is better interaction with the professors allowing for more one on one time. The hands on experiments are helpful in getting experience and better understanding of the material. The academic advisors are helpful in making sure that you get registered for the classes needed, and helps out with rescheduling in case of cancellation.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type of person that shouldn't attend this school is more of the athletic person because there is no sports or any activities like that.

Describe the students at your school.

The classmates that I have had so far have been very helpful and encouraging. There are the occasional sarcastic students, but overall I have been very pleased.

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

I would first tell myself to focus more in high school to better prepare and set myself up for succeeding. I would tell myself to not worry about what others are doing, but rather what is best for me and my future. I am an older college student and for this reason I would tell myself to complete my education right after high school and do not put it off because having a full time job, three kids, and a wife it is difficult to find the required time for my studies. When pursuing an education it is good to get advice from your peers and family, but ultimately you are responsible for what you accomplish, and don't accomplish. Knowing this, I would tell myself to make sure I had a road map planned so that I had an idea of where I was going, not finding out once I got there.

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

I wish that I had completely reaserched what I was going to do with my degree before I started.

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

Shai, I know that you are young and you just want to be out on your own but the only way that you are going to make it in this world is if you go tcollege and do something for yourself. Partying is ok, but stay focus. I know that it may be hard and that you may face some challenges when it comes to English but you can make it. It is only as hard as you make it. Don't forget about the library, its there to help. Not to mention the tutors that won't make you feel like you are dumb. Just keep going and before you know it you will be done. Don't be scared to go all the way to PhD. You can do it.

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

Going to school at DeVry is challenging and it is even more challening when you work and try to maintain a part time job. It is hard to survive especially witht the economy the way that it is.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who can afford to go to school and not have to work a part time job and struggle while in school.
