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

As a student i recommend that you make overnight visits to the schools you are looking at and choose a weekend that there is ample activity on campus. Engaging in campus activity such as intramural sports any campus events and such is futile to survival in college social life get out of your dorm room and meet people. The friends you make in college will be lifetime friends.

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

ETBU Has a very low Student population, which means that the people that u see on campus in the morning in the caf will be the same people u see walking around campus all day.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Being hispanic there is a low population of us, as well as no worth while fraternity to join.

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

I think it's really important to find a school were you really feel like you belong. It's not completely about who has the most on campus activities, who is ranked higher, who has smartest students or more well known professors. I auditioned for many music departments and many schools all over the southern half of the United States and I didn't feel more wanted or appreciated anywhere than I did at ETBU. The professors seemed so excited I was there and the admissions office and financial aid were so helpful. When I left that day I knew where I wanted to go there because I left feeling liked I belonged, like I was a part of something. I knew that I would be so happy attending this school, I could just feel it. I am currently a senior at ETBU and I am so glad I made this decision. I love my school and wouldn't change anything about my choice to attened.

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

I think some of the rules are a little extreme, especially the fines that go along with them.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

a very good learning environment, focuused on the classroom and is very small. A christian school so it is a great place to learn more about Jesus Christ and the Christian religion in general.

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

I would advise parents to look at the curriculum of the school and to talk with their students and make sure that is somewhere they would like to go. Encourage your children to make sound decisions concerning their own futures, and to really try hard and succeed. Do not waste time in college. Try and have fun, but schoolwork and learning are the most important aspects of college. Stay focused and work very hard.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

How small it is, and how so many people refuse to see other ways of looking at things. Everone has been sheltered all their lives so they are not used to the outside world.

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

When choosing what college to attend I would advise students and parents not to procrastinate. I would recommend applying for as many scholarships and as much financial aid as possible. Once you make your decision of where you are going to go to school, I would tell new students to get involved in as much as you can, and to get to know people. If you find that you cannot juggle your work load being too involved you can always shrink your involvement.

What's unique about your campus?

it is small and the student to teacher ratio's are good

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

I believe small school education is the way to go definately but I would encourage the students and parents to be open minded when choosing a college or university. College is such an awesome and vital time in a young person's life so willingness to be open a change is a huge thing.

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

Some of the facilities aren't the best. Sometimes the students get apathetic toward the school but I think a lot of that is due to the smaller Christian school environment.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who wants to be involved and a person who really wants to learn and get a good valuable education. Also, a person who wants to grow spiritually.

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

Atmostphere is the most important indicator of a good school. Prospective students should look around and ask themselves questions. First, are people friendly? If people are unwilling to talk to a visitor, they will probably be unwilling to strike up a conversation with a new student. Second, do people look happy. If a large ammount of the population appear to be frustrated, there is probably a reason. Third, is most of the college life on campus? If not, a freshman could be stuck on a dead campus durring the weekends with nothing to do. Ask a current student, preferably an upperclassmen, what they think about the school. Are they still upbeat and positive? That's a good sign. If they are jaded and unsure, then this is probably not a good choice for the long haul. Visit lots of colleges, and don't be afraid to talk to people. They will give you the answers you need.

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

I made amazing friends at ETBU. Everyone was very friendly and the professors were awesome.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The food and the beaurocracy. There was so much trouble getting anything changed by the administration. I hated dealing with any of the offices because I knew they were not going to be very helpful, especially student services. You can definately tell that money is the bottom line, not the students.

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

Try and sit in on an actual class lecture. See if the classes are what you are interested in. It doesn't matter what the campus looks like, it's all about what you want out of your college class experience that is going to bring you the best degree.

What's unique about your campus?

The people that are there. Because I couldn't ask for better friends or faculty.

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

The most important thing to look for in the great university search is to find a campus where you feel at home. Find a place where you feel comfortable, whether that means a small campus or a large campus. I'm a firm believer that no matter where a person ends up, they are going to meet great people and develop strong friendships, so the college search should really be focused on the area where one would like to go to school. Small towns can be trying, but with the limited amount of activities around town, you end up developing your creativity and friendships actually grow in the search for entertainment. The big city offers a lot of opportunities for entertainment, but there is always the risk of having TOO MUCH to do. A university should feel like home. That's the best thing you can find.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The people who seem to enjoy ETBU the most are kids who are active in their home churches, want to join the BSM and are excited about the prospect of finding their future spouse. The rest of the students have a healthy respect for their classes, professors, and understand that life is about the idea of balance. There is a wide range of people at ETBU and I feel that anyone can find a place.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Basically, if you want a school where you can goof off and never go to class, this is not the school for you. If you want a school where you can get wasted and never study, but make great grades, this is not the school for you. People who like causing drama with outlandish ideas or values and enjoy rubbing those in people's faces do not do well at ETBU and have all left after one semester.

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

It is really important to find the school that best fits you! and make sure that you talk to students throughout the campus to know how they feel, they will let you know what everything is really like. Look at all the dorms and sample the cafeteria food as well. Make sure that you dont go home every weekend when you first start going to school because you make most of your friends at those times and you really wont like your experience at all. Most of those people end up leaving after the first yr. Try to get involved in something that you will really like. Not everyone is made for frats or sororities, so do intermurals or anything that you find to be fun, and you will meet way more people that way. Dont forget to study because it is NOT like high school, you cant coast if you wanna get somewhere in life! Its ok to miss out on some things because you need to study. Dont blow your money and get in debt, it will hurt you later! And stay physically active, it will help your grades and the freshman 15 is real!!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

one that wants to have fun! there are too many rules and you cant do anything on campus. its like going to church camp or something

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

There maybe a million schools out there that call you asking repeatedly for your attendance, but the one you want is the one that you call repeatedly asking if you can attend. Even so that is not always the one that you should go to. Opportunities are hidden in every school. Be sure to look at the ones that don't seem to offer much,because it could be a diamond in the rough. Ask about the student life and how you would be able to help. If a school doesn't have what you are looking for think about how you could be the one that goes in there and makes the changes the campus needs. Every school is different. The school that was made for you may be the school you least expected, so don't be afraid to dig deeper and truly research schools. Be confident that your four years will be well spent.

What's unique about your campus?

I like the classes. My professors are always willing to help. They love us. ,and they are very accomodating. Depending on who you hang out with ,your friends are amazing. They want to know you for the rest of thier lives. The school offers you a ton of ways to travel.
