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

Finding the right college is all about feeling comfortable. Visit as many colleges as possible and when you find the right one, you will know it instantly because of the overwhelming feeling of satisfaction that overpowers you. My advice to parents of students is do not force your child to go to any one college or university. The worse thing you can do is pressure your child into attending a certain college when he/she does not truly feel comfortable there. It can affect them in a number of ways, especially academically. When it comes to finding the right college, students need to explore their options and feelings about those schools in order to be successful in their student career and future.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Goal-oriented and hard working.

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

I am originally a transfer student from the University at Buffalo, and I left there because the classes were so large and very unpersonal. I chose to transfer to D'Youville because it is a smaller, private school so I knew I would be treated as a person and not just a number. The classes here are small and the professors are wonderful. They know you by name and are always available for help. I also like the close proximity of the campus. Even though the campus takes up about 2 city blocks, most of the buildings are connected.

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

When making a choice about a college, the student should reflect about what learning style is best for them and find a college that will suit the needs of the student, regardless of financial situation. For example, if they feel they can learn best with a large group of people and to remain unnoticed, then a large university may suit them. Or if the student learns best with more one-on-one attention or gets distracted easily, then perhaps a private college that offers small classes will be the better choice. It's important also for the parents not to pressure students with making a decision about what college to attend. Parents should try not to impose what they as parents think is best for the student, but should listen and understand what the needs of the student are. If the student can't have their own say about what college to attend, they may be forced into a situation that may make them unhappy or do poorly. Lastly, the student should look for a place where they will fit in and feel comfortable at. Finding a college that will cater to the student's needs is of upmost importance!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person that shouldn't go to this school are those that are not serious about their education. D'Youville is known for it's medical programs so classes here aren't easy. Only a truely focused and driven individual should attend college here. Also students who plan on partying all the time and skipping classes shouldn't attend. Attendance is strongly required in almost all the courses offered here, so absences do affect your grade. And even though there are parties on campus, it's important to stay focused on your studies.

Very disorganized and unaccomidating, the departments do not communitcate with each other at all, leaving the students to fend for themselves when dealing with any problems or questions.

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

Let your son or daughter have the final decision on where they want to go, because in the end it is they who are going to be attending that school and paying for it. Search the school online and make sure to visit the campus and talk with administrators, teachers and students there to see what they say about the school. Get involved with the school, it will be the easiest way to make new friends in a new place; these people will help you out for the next few years and will become your second family. Research what the school has to offer you and what you can offer the school and how it will help you in the long run after you have graduated.

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

Some advice I would give to parents and students to decide what college to attend would be to visit several colleges. You have to decide whether you like the atmosphere of the college and whether you want to be in a rural or urban setting. Also, the students has to decide how close or far away from home she wants to be. The student also has to look at what the college offers and what the classes are like. Does the student want to be in a small class or in a large one? Another thing that they student and parents should look at is the crime rate surrounding the school. Also, the price of the school and the availability of financial aid and scholarships. The student has to look at what kind of activities the school offers. In order to make the most of the college experience the student should join clubs and get involved in the college. I also suggest that the student dorms. It is a great experience and gives them some freedom.

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

I would have liked to know more about the teachers and what i would have to take. I would have also liked to know more about the area I would be going to school in. Also, how easy or hard it was to get help with course work and finacial aid.

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

As a student and a single parent, my advice would be to find something affordable but reputable. Working on my second bachelor's now, when students are first graduating from high school, many but not all students, dont understand that a lot of financial aid is not free and eventually it will have to be paid back. So dont overspend. The are many colleges and universities that have plently of programs, extra curricular activities, some may be small or large, depending on your personal preference. Students that may be from small towns or small schools have to think about the culture shock of going to a larger university. Students that want to go away to school to get the "FULL" college experience, make sure you are mentally ready. Its a lot of work and becoming home sick is a definite possibilty. My best advice is take your time in choosing.

What's unique about your campus?

My school is small and everyone and everything is very accessible.

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

There are not alot of evening classes offered for my major. I am a single mom with a young child who is not in school and evening classes would be helpful.

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

While it is difficult to offer only one piece of advice to prospective students, safety and cost of education is applicable to EVERY student. Before applying to any institution, you should most certainly look into the area the institution is established and visit there. Do you feel comfortable walking or driving down those streets? While touring the area, do you notice anyone dressed in security patrolling the area? If not, then you should strongly consider other institutions. Unless this particular school offers excellent programs, your safety should never be put at risk. My second piece of advice is to really recognize what your tuition is truly paying for. If you are attending a college where tuition is $10,000 a semester, figure out WHO is educating you! Is it a student in a doctoral program, or a long term professor who holds their PhD? After you figure out who is teaching you, stop by professor's offices and interview them. Do they appear happy to be working for that particular school? Chances are if your professor is not happy, you may not be! Do your research and really look into EVERYTHING!

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

Although I do believe that student loans for education are "good" loans, it is important to realize the quality of education you are receiving and how it correlates with the tuition. Before attending college, prospective students should most certainly look into the education of their professors. You DO NOT want to be spending $20,000 a year at a college where master's students are teaching you. For that amount of money, ALL of your classes should be taught and instructed by professors with PhD's.

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

There are several 5 year programs offered at D'Youville. Many of these programs offered are Bachelor's to Master's programs, which can easily be completed in five years. Five year programs allow students to finish quickly, and still graduate with the same amount of knowledge (if not more) compared to other students at different schools who take six or seven years for the same programs. At D'Youville, there are five year programs in Education, Business, etc. This is most certianly one aspect of my school that I tend to brag about.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our private, coeducational college is known for its programs in leadership and service. They offer degrees at various levels and make it convienent for those that are off-campus commuters. The school is best known for it's healthcare programs and further more its opportunities above and beyond the general undergraduate degree. The small class size and the diverse campus allow for a great learning environment and the tools needed to succeed.

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

Ultimately I do not believe it is the parents choice for finding the right college for their child. As for the child, which I was at one time, I would advise: "Do not take advice from the person(s) on the outside, but from the person on the inside." Nobody knows your education skills, cababilities, and capacity better than yourself. If you are sure in yourself, then you are more than capable of finding the school that will inspire you and teach you to be the career person you want to be...and will be. The right college will be able to offer you the techniques and environment that are properly fit to your needs. You, not a college advisor, or highschool advisor, or even a parent know you better than yourself. There will be challenges, you may not make the right decision first, but ultimately you will get to know yourself far better than you imagine and "fall into place." College at first is an awkward time, you are making your own decisions, but I assure you, you will choose the right path and become just who you want to be.

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

When I brag to my friends about school I emphasize the small class sizes. I learn better with less people around because I can get the attention, focus, and information I need.

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

I would look at the variety of academic programs that the college offers first before taking any further step. It's the best to choose the program that I like to do by heart. As you know, today economics is going down; it's also decreasing jobs. Therefore, it is ok to choose the program that is short and has a high demand job. It's better to have a job rather than unemployment. The most important thing is financial aid. Everybody can borrow money form loaners but not everybody wants to pay it back. Why they don't want to pay back? You can name it easily. In healthcare field we always have this term that preventing is always better than treating. Therefore, we should calculate, make plan, estimate before borrow money. Especially, we have to making sure that the money that we spend and borrow is worthy for every cent. Parents should spend more time with children no matter how busy and difficult life is because at the second that you think your children do not need you; it may be the second the second that they need you a lot.

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

I would recommend that all students follow their dreams. Students should fit their desired major with the appropriate college which offers the degree/field they want to pursue. To make the most out of college is to truly experience college. I recommend getting involved with numerous school groups as well as volunteering in the community. Some of my best college experiences happened because I got involved with both the school and community. By being an active part in the school, I have made many friends throughout my college experience, friends that I will always be close with, friends I can even now rely on. It is important to make the best out of the college experience because it will only happen once.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Nothing realy, just wish the Buffalo city transportation system was a little better.
