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

Senior year of high school, i rembember i had applied to around seven schools, gotten all of my acceptance letters back, but i still had no idea where i wanted to go. I am a very athletic person, and of course applied to schools that had the sports that i played, and that had good teams as well. My parents did research and encouraged me to apply to schools that were known for their academics. The advice i would give to parents and students about finding the right college is quite simple; you need to find the college that has similar values to your own. My school values academics over sports, while other schools seemed to be equally balenced, or stress atheletics more. In addition i think it is important to consider the size of the school and its classes, and base your descision on your preferences. As for making the most out of your college experience i would definately say to get invovled with clubs, activites, and sports (if they are your type of thing), otherwise college is going to be really boring outside of the classroom! Not to mention, getting involved is how you meet new people!

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

I wish i would have known more about the student life. Once i got to school i realized how little there really was to do on campus. It is true that there are a lot of clubs to participate in, but once the school day is over there isn't that much to do. Most students use this time to party and drink. I chose to join a sport (crew). I am very glad i did, but i still wish that there were more things to do around campus, especially since most of the practices are in the morning!

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person this school is perfect for is the kind of person who likes small classes, and a small college, where you know or reconize most of the people you see around campus. In addition the classes are perfect for people who like to actually know their proffesors and have their proffesors know them. It is also a great school for someone who knows exactly what they want to do and are very focused. D'Youville allows you to efficiently follow the path you need to graduate in the least amount of time possible.

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

What is unique about D?youville college is the small classes. The size of these classes range anywhere from 5-25 students depending on the class, which allows for a more personal relationship between the students and the professors.

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

The advice I would give parents and/or students about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience would be to base the search on the students personal needs, personality and sense of responsibility. In my opinion I believe that the biggest mistake that parents and or students can make in searching for the right college is to apply to a college based on its popularity and size. It is crucial that the student and parents focus on the needs that the students may require because the fact is that everyone is not meant for big named schools. As far as college experience I believe that one does not reap the full benefits of college unless they are living on campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend this school is someone who doesn't want to party all the time, not into classes bigger than 25 students and the type of person who wants their professor to know them by name.

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

I would suggest parents & students to do their research about different majors. Being a transfer student, I lost my scholarships and ended up paying full tuition for most of my college years. Also, you want to do research on financial aid opportunities and tuition costs from different colleges before jumping into any college just because your friends are going or its close. It's important to try to

What's unique about your campus?

I liked the ability of all my classes to me in one building the majority of the time, so in the winter and rain I wouldn't have to go outside. It's a small campus and you get to know most people in your major graduating class.

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

When finding a college, make sure you research th eprograms that you want to go into throughly. Different schools have better programs than others. Also consider the type of college you want to go to. If you want to go to a smaller school, look at the smaller schools, don't look into a big school if you know you won't be happy there. Make sure you have fully researched the area around the school as well. My school isn't a closed in community so if you feel like that's not your thing and you would rather have a closed in community due to safety issues then look into closed community schools. Just make sure you have considered all possibilities and all aspects from every direction you could possibly think of. If you have even an inkling of doubt, its probably not the right school for you.

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

How much differnt the teachers were from high school teachers and how much of a change it would be from the workload of high school to tgeh workload of college

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The professors not having enough office hours to accomodate my work schedule. I go straight from school to work everyday and my days are packed....I have almost no time to myself unless its after midnight.

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

Both parents and students should consider the average size of classes, how frequently necessary courses are offered, the availability of tutors or mentors, the safety of the campus, and the tolerance of race/ethnicity and sexual orientation. When a student is entering college for their first time, they must be aware that most colleges contain students who participate in parties involving alcohol. This can really ibe detrimental to a student's progress through college, and they will find it in their best interest to seek out social situations that will not complicate this difficult journey. They will certainly benefit from using the academic facilities that provide tutors who specialize in subjects the student is having trouble with. Most importantly, students should be aware that the purpose of college is to become a working professional in at least four years, but this minimum of four years can only be achieved with arduous work! Their social life in not their first priority! Do encourage their search of friends, but urge them to find those who will provide a positive influence on their studies.

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

There are few teachers, and for some programs there are few students. What this is indicative of is that a necessary course may only be offered during one semester.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The humanity courses seem to be slim, which can impede a student from obtaining their degree on time. For example, humanities are core courses that include literature, fine arts, foreign language, philosphy, and religion. A student is required to enroll in 3 out of the 5 areas, and sometimes they may interfere with more important classes. Furthermore, why a fine arts class comes before a math or history class is beyond me! It really restricts me from taking courses when I would like, thus keeping me from obtaining my degree at a convenient time.

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

When growing up a student has a picture in their head of what college is and most likely that is the type of college they are aspiring to be a part of. Picking your college is one of the most important choices you will make in your life because college forms who who are. Most people do not think about this but if someone chooses an urban campus school and someone chooses a school where their campus is the biggest part of the town both of the students will grow to be very different. When deciding on a school the student needs to choose the college that they believe will turn them into the person they want to be They can do this by talking to students who go to the schools that they look at. Ask the current students at the college what they think about the college because that is where a prospective student will find the most truth.

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

The school is very small and students tend not to think out side of the box. It is hard for someone who cares about the enviroment to relate to the school.

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

I would tell students and parents to talk to people that have attended the college. The school's advertisement is not the way to judge a good school. Ask people who have attended the school: "Did you feel prepared in your carreer when you graduated?" This is a very important question that can tell you if its the right school for you. The best school should have a safe location, an average tuition, and helpful staff that prepare you the best they can for the real career world. You should also look into how the school transfers credits. Some schools will not accept certain credits from different colleges. That is a terrible thing when you complete a degree, and find the next school you go to will not accept your credits. I would also tell them If you do not know anyone who went to the school then make sure you attend an open house, take a tour, and look at multiple options to base your decision on. This is one of the most important decisions you can make, and you do not want to go into it lightly.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who can afford the tuition, and someone interested in providing more of thier personal time into doing work the school should be doing for you.

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

My advise that I would give to parents and students about finding the right college is to make sure you look for the major you want. That is the most important thing about looking for the right college. Make sure you also check to see if you like the campus. Do you want a big school or small school? If you want to live on campus, make sure that you are comfortable with the area, and if there are activities to do outside of classes, so you don't get bored. Try to get into social activities so you can meet new people. Most importantly, if you go to a college, you can go undecided, because once you go into a field, you may notice that there are alot of different careers you can do. If you have a major already decided, make sure the school you want has all the requirements for the major and clubs to join, so you can meet people that are also in your major. There are alot of universities and colleges everywhere. Try to do your research before you choose one, so you know if the college is the right one for you.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

D'Youville i best know for the small classrooms and a very friendly environment. When giving tours of the school to prospective students, I emphasize the student to teacher ratio which is 14:1 and the one on one attention you will recieve from faculty and staff. No matter what year you are or what major you are enrolled in, D'Youville will help you with anything you need!

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

When searching for the right college, both the parents and students should feel comfortable with the college atmosphere. Make sure to visit as many schools as possible and keep your options open! When you go to visit a school be open to new ideas and really know what will help you succeed during your college experience. When you first arrive at the campus you are looking at, you should feel comfortable right away and feel welcomed. If you dont get a good vibe, then that school is not for you. The environment should feel friendly and not fake. Faculty members and the students that are helping you should come off as a peer and not as if they are selling the school to you. College is a big step and should be discussed amongst friends and family. You may not know exactly what you want to do the first day of school and may even change your mind, but that's ok! What you choose to do in college is your choice, no one elses. Make sure to always have free time to relax and do fun activities other than study! College is a great opportunity, choose wisely!

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

Make sure That the college has everything you are looking for. Not just a good program. You want to look for finacial, class sizes, activites, if you like the campus, if you like the dorms, the proffsouers and also how dose the college make you feel when you step on campus. I think that if it is not confotable to be there or you are nervous or worried than it is not the college for you.

What's unique about your campus?

That the teachers are there for you if you are haveing aa tough time they will help you out the best they can
