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

It is smart to find a school that the student likes best and the parents/students can afford. Make sure it offers a wide variety of majors if you are undecided or some majors that you are interested in. Make close friends because they will most likly stay with you forever. Don't forget about your high school friends because if you remain friends through college then they are there to stay. Have fun and make college a life long good memory. DON'T PARTY TOO MUCH THAT IT AFFECTS YOUR GRADES :)

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who is dedicated or who isn't willing to have an open mind to find a major to fit a certain career.

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

Your college experience depends on one factor--you. You have the power to make it the experience you want it to be. College life is unique in that for most people it is their first taste of independence, thus it is an exciting time when one fully develops and perfects the person they want to be . It is a time of trial and error, of successes and failures. My advice to all those who are about to embark on this blessing is to learn all you can. This learning process occurs not only in the traditional classroom setting where one can be challenged intellectually but in the dorm rooms, the cafeteria, the gym and even the bar. Meet as many different people as you can, try things you've never thought you'd like, study all day, party all night. And most importantly never lose sight of the original goal-- your education, because that it is your most powerful tool for the future.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who is open and willing to experience new things, creative and knows how to have a good time will love the opportunities EKU holds. EKU is the perfect fit for someone who wants to attend a larger university without losing their individuality. Anyone could love EKU as long as they are willing to give it a chance.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

EKU offers a little bit of everything to cater to a variety of interests and individuals. It resides in a small college town though so if one wants the big city life it is not for you. Also while the sport teams are competitive they are not known for constant victories. If someone is more interested in a school with a dominating athletic department than EKU is not for you.

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

The advice I would give either parents or students looking for the right college is to think of what you want. If you deman one on one attention look for a small school and not a large classroom settings. Second, Look at the location close to or far away from home. Make sure you are happy at all times.

The worst thing about Eastern is the on campus housing. Not worth all the money you pay for. It is about $3,000 cheaper to live off campus.

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

I would ask the student what they are interested--what career path is most appealing to him or her. Finding a school with a strong department for the prososed field of study is important. I had to change schools to do what I wanted, and I couldn't be happier doing what I want at my new school. Secondly, what kind of campus is the student looking for? Does he or she prefer a small, quiet campus or a large, busy one? If you need to be around lots of diverse, interesting people a small school might not cut it and the student would just get bored with school. And a large school could be scary to someone that would prefer a more laid-back environment. To make the most out of the college experience, I would suggest that the student makes themselves available to potential friends. They shouldn't be afraid to approach people they think they could be friends with. Also, the student needs to remember to do his or her own thing...they should go to campus events they want to go, not ones that the "cool kids" are attending. And never give in to peer pressure.
