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

So far my college experience has been a roller coaster ride. I feel like I have had a difficult time trying to figure out how I'm going to pay for school and books. I feel like I was accepted into a program then to be told that the classes are not available so I would have to "sit tight" for a year until the classes I needed were available. Then I got interested in another field of study and I am able to start these classes right away. Like I said earlier, I am also worried about my college bills. I come from a very low income family and while they can't help with the financial aspect of school they helped me realize that I needed a good college education in order to get a better life and get out of the ghetto. The neighborhood I grew up in was a good area for kids and is slowing turning into a terrible area to live in and I look forward to allow my great education to propel me into a successful career.

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

I am an adult returning to school to facilitate a career change and become an RN. I believe that returning to college was a great decision. One of many things that I have gotten out of my college experience so far is that I know if I study hard and keep focused that I can achieve my goals in a timely manner. I has been and still is valuable to attend D'Youville because this school will give me the knowledge and experience to become a great Nurse. There is a shortage of nurses in this country and the need for well educated and trained nurses is of great necessity. The patients need caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable nurses to help them cope with, manage, and heal the illnesses and ailments that affect them.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is dedicated to doing well in their courses and is goal-oriented.

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

D'Youville can be described by the following sentence: A small, urban school focused on students, academics, and student success with an additional emphasis on serving the community around. D'Youville was founded by St. Marguerite D'Youville whose spirit was to never refuse the call to serve. D'Youville keeps this motto close and includes it in their mission statement. D'Youville takes pride in small class sizes and classes being taught by Ph.D's, not teaching assistants. The college is based right in the city and provides students with a unique urban setting for living and learning.

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

By attending college I have become more in tune to the world around me. I have been taught to challenge everything and to think critically. I have become more aware of the importance to serve, not only those in my own community, but those around the world. I have made friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. Through participation in athletics and campus clubs, I have become a more well-rounded individual. I am much more aware of cultural differences than ever before. I have thought about cultural, ethical, and world issues, many of which I had never before considered prior to attending college. Out of my college experience has not only come widsom and knowledge, but what I feel is an increased capability to relate to, serve, and develop relationships with more types of people. I feel for all of these reasons college has been a valuable experience. It is the goal of most people to someday obtain a skill that can be used in finding a career. I feel college has not only helped me to develop a skill, but that it has also increased my awareness for the world in which I will be working.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone looking for the "big-time" college experience would not be well suited at D'Youville College. D'Youville takes pride in its small size and strong focus on academics. There are enough campus activities to remain active and involved, but it is not a place where several things are going on all the time. Weekends tend to be very low-key with few planned activities. D'Youville has a very large commuter population which tends to decrease on-campus involvement and attendance at many school functions. Someone looking for an active campus full of social opportunities should look elsewhere.

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

What I have gotten out of my college experience is that it is hard to choose the right one. I have finely foud the right one for me. I attend Ashford Unversity. I like this college because it offers both on campus and online classes. I like the fact that I can take my classes online because I am a mother of a very active toddler and work 40 hours a week. So the only time I can study is when I am not working but even that is hard with my little one. So I study online at night when my little one is sound a sleep. Ashford is always taking time to talk to there incomming students and make them feel comfort about attending there school.

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

I have been attending college for the last five years. It has been difficult because I am married and have two young daughters. I will have my AA next semester and will be transferring to a university in fall. Going to college has been very hard and has taught me that nothing good comes easy. I have been diligent in my studies and the experience has revealed to me how a dedicated person I am. I have questioned my goals in college many times, but I believe that it is still in my wife's and my two daughters best interest to stay in college. Since my work has paid off and I will be at a university next semester, I am more determined than ever to stay focused on finishing college. Going to college has not only been valuable to me but also to my family, since I am the first in my family to go to college.

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

D'Youville is a small and personalized learning environment that offers a demanding but high quality education as well as a helpful and supportive staff and many career placement opportunities upon graduation.

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

D'Youville has offered me a variety of positive experiences, personally as well as academically and professionally. The diversity of students is allowing me to learn about and accept other cultures and religions and to be an open-minded individual. The academic experience offers small class sizes and ideal professor interaction that is conducive to a successful learning environment. D'Youville is very challenging academically but if you are motivated and determined to seek the necessary assistance from the staff, the sky is the limit. It has taught me that through hard work, anything is possible. The school also has many affiliations within the community that allows students to make professional connections and even to set up job opportunities for after graduation. The benefit of attending the smaller college as opposed to a larger university has enabled me to attain one-on-one help from professors and in the process, develop real relationships with the staff on a personal level. Some colleges offer a mentor program; due to the small size and personal nature of this school, any and all of your professors are mentors. They are willing to offer personal as well as professional advice to ensure success.

What's unique about your campus?

In my opinion, the best thing about D'Youville College is the small class sizes. The ability to ask questions frequently, along with the personal interaction with the professors makes D'Youville an ideal learning environment for those who are in college to be taught and guided, not to teach themselves as is the case with larger universities. The professors are very approachable and willing to help students on an academic as well as personal level. The individual attention and professional advice/guidance are unique to a school with small classes; you are more than just a number.

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

As of yet I have not attended college, but I am enrolled to start Spring quarter at ITT Technical Institute. Therefore I cannot answer the question, but I can tell you what I hope to get out of my college experience. I am hoping, because the construction industry hasn't treated me too well so far, that I can get a better career for me and for my family. I spent some time researching careers and schools and found a career option that i believe suits me and suits my financial goals for the future. I then found the school that can give me the degree i need. I have visited the school and found that the staff and students are both friendly and helpful, and I believe i will very much enjoy my experience at ITT Technichal Institute.

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

The college experience is something truly unique; it's like no other adventure I have embarked on. Looking at attending college as an experience has allowed me to soak up more the unique atmosphere found at my college. Walking to the other buildings, working in the study rooms being tutored and tutoring, sitting at lunch with friends, and working with everyone in the school's cafeteria is similar to high school but it's a completely different level. At college, I have extended my wings and I feel I have found my own niche that I couldn't find in high school. I have so many supporting friends who impart wisdom from their experiences to me, making me feel that I have awakened to a new world. I have learned new skills from being around my new friends as well as from working in the cafeteria where I not only talk to the students but also develop bonds with my coworkers. Bonds build the world as they develop and one grows when the world is opened to them; that's exactly what has happened to me - my world has expanded and I am a much better person for it.

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

Last semester was my first time in school in over eight years and the first time ever, that I set goals. I created a plan, worked diligently, and for the first time I made a 4.0 GPA. I appreciate each class and use it as an opportunity for personal growth. I have gained confidence and a feeling of empowerment. In my Success in College class I learned time management skills and how to use available resourses. I discovered that I do not really hate math, in fact I enjoy it. I learned in Psychology that my future in-laws really are. crazy. My parents and family are so supportive and proud of me. I have a closer bond and more in common with my sister who is studying to become a nurse. I am setting a good example for my two year old son and improving our quality of life. Through education I can make a difference in my life, those around me, and my community.
