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

To find the right college some real research is needed. Knowing what you what to study and what you want out of your education are also key. To make the most of a college experience it in very important to be comfortable. Comfortable going to a school far from home and with no one you know can be tough on some students, as well as staying close to home so really sit down and discuss what you want. Be prepared when you go to college, have plans set up to ensure you have enough study time and can avoid getting caught up partying and too many extracirricular activities. Most important, make sure you're ready to go to college, if you need some time to travel or persue some need, it's not a bad idea to do that as long as you stay focused and remain prepared to go back.

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

Take your studies seriously. Strive for your best and don't get caught up with too much partying. Professors are willing to help and be involved, just ask.

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

Edinboro University of Pennsylvania is a culturally diverse institution which encourages students to pursue job opportunities pertaining to their interests with the help of focused and driven professors, many of which are professionals in their given field, set in a quaint home-town styled pocket of the Northwestern section of Pennsylvania.

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

When looking at potential colleges it's helpful to consider what you're looking to do. Sometimes thats getting a specialized degree in a field you already know you love, and other times its a stepping stone to deciding where you fit. Schools range in size and location, but that's not everything. Originally attending a large school in my home town, I struggled to find my place. It wasn't until I took a step back and considered what I really wanted to do did I find where I belonged. This happened to be a small, liberal arts college in a tiny, spot-on-the-map school, which originally I would have turned my nose up at, but turned out to be one of the premier schools in the nation in my particular field of study, Computer Animation. College is all about finding who you are as a person, and who you want to be in the future! So, although the partying and nightlife might seem enticing at a particular school while another has a great academic department, consider where you might find the happy medium and ultimately where you want to spend the best years of your life!

What's unique about your campus?

When considering my particular major of Computer Animation I feel as though I am surrounded by driven and motivated individuals such as myself. In addition to my fellow classmates' enthusiasm, several professors in the field have worked in the business of animation for several years, being a part of projects ranging from Disney's "The Lion King" to "M&M" animated commercials. These professors truly care about helping students learn software and usage to help them succeed in applying knowledge to real-world professional positions once out of college. Basically, they care about how students learn. They Rock!

I think that you need to apply to at least three different schools, narrow down from the schools you want to go to and then apply to them. Once you are accepted really read into your major area of study and extra curriculars you want to participate in. Then go on a tour. I can not stress enough how important it is to tour the campus, you will feel it when you get there whether you will hate it or like it. I went to a tour at a different college and from the second i stepped out of the car i was realized it was going to be a waste of time and as the tours started i could just feel that i didnt want to go to school there. Apply for scholarships even if you dont think you'll get them because you might and it's worth it. College is never a bad idea. even if you don't complete your schooling you still learn from teh experience and if you do you will end up with a great career.

What's unique about your campus?

I am going into education and the program is great, you do internships at schools in the area, it is NCATE accredited, and the professors are former teachers and do group work and interactive learning a lot.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who don't care about their studies should not attend this school.

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

Start early and go with your gut instinct. Helps to know what you want to do so you don't have to change your major. KNow that you want to go to college, don't just go because its the next step. Its a lot of money no matter where you go so go where you want to go. Parents, stay out of it. This is a huge decision for your child and they dont need eight million peopoe given them their own opinion when theirs is the only one that matters. Let your students do what they want and guide them toward what they like not you. Be open to your childs interests. It costs money no matter what just be happy. Spend 50000 dollars and be sad and miserable or spend 80000 and have the time of your life. Either way you have loans to pay for in the long run. :)

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

I would say that all state schools offer the same quality of education. The only difference is the campus. Find the campus and the weather conditions that fit your personality. And about making the most out of college experience? Obviously school work is #1 priority, but your social life is more important than some people think. Find your scene of people by going to frat parties, or through campus activities, but you need to be happy and fit in your group of friends. Don't get frustrated if it takes you even up to a year to find friends that are simular to you. Bottom line, an individual needs to be able to balance work with play, and for once, your on your own to make that decision. Over all college is an experience in itself, just make sure your grades are up to par.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the campus, it's really big and spread out and i love having to walk because the campus is so gorgeous. There is a lake with benches around it and gorgeous trees. I also love it because of the new buildings which make the campus more modern looking. The campus and the surrounding area is mostly young adults that are super nice and eager to make new friends. The fitness gym is brand new and amazing. The wireless internest access is everywhere. Evenything about this school is awesome.

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

I wish i would have know how to study. In highschool i never studied, just did homework and got B's. In college there is NO homework. It's all huge tests that are worth 20% of your grade. It's not a bad thing tho because once you get a system down of how you can study well, it's a piece of cake.

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

Deffently go up and look at the surrounding enviorment of the college before making the final desision. While your up there, dont be shy to join a club or get involved in something you care about, it helps tou find friends faster and friends that understand you and your intrests. If living in a dorm, dont be shy to meet the people around you. I know from experience its better to make friends around you than to make enemys. To make the best out of college, i say study just what your teachers tell you to, they aren't there to trick you or make you fail like highschool teachers, they really do want to see you pass. Dont take certin classes as a joke, even if the professor is easy. When it comes to test, he/she might be the hardest and you end up failing the class. Just dont be shy, try to make friends because having friends will make you feel confrontable in the enviorment and make sure you work hard on your classes and try your hardest to get good grades. GOOD LUCK !!

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

The surrounding envoiorment was very bland .. it took about 20 mins to get to the nearsest mall, and the fun only lasted there for a little while. The camous was quite at night and on the weekends with not of alot of activitys going on. The weather there was terrible, it snowed alomst everyday and we did not get one snow day. There would be at least 3 feet of snow outside every week, and it was very cold and windy. By the time spring rolled around it was pretty but the winter was bad.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who likes the rural enviorment and likes to work mainly on school work. Not a lot of activitys go on during the weekends there, and so thats when i find it the worst to be there. But the library is one of the biggest in the NW of PA and i find that to have helped me alot while going htere. The new dorm halls and student center added excitement to the campus my freshmen year.

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

I would first look at what kind of educational programs the college offers that will support your major. If you cannot get the appropriate education for what you want to major in, then you need to find another college. It needs to have an extensive program that best fits your needs. I would also look at tuition and housing prices. The university I attended made it very easy for students to apply for financial aid, and that is how I was able to attend. If you cannot afford the tuition, look into financial aid and apply for scholarships. These really help. To make the most of your college experience, make sure that you GO TO CLASS! You need to attend classes to get the information you will need to pass. Also, do not overwhelm yourself in any given semester. If you can only handle 12 credits instead of 18, then just take 12. It does not do you any good to be so burned out that you can't retain anything. Remember...you are in college to learn and prepare for your future so make the most of your time there!

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

when it comes to finding it take your time. visit the campus because the schools i thought i really wanted to go to, once i went to the campus i didnt like it at all. so if i had jumped to a decision i could have been stuck in a place a really didnt like at all. check out the facilities especially if you are an athlete because that was a real turn off for me for some schools. make sure you get out and meet people. once i let my self meet knew people i had the time of my life and met some of the best friends i have. keep in touch with your family. no matter how fustrating school can become or how busy you feel you may be. make sure you keep in touch with your family because if you damage relationships wile your away it can really hurt you in the end.

What's unique about your campus?

the best thing about this school was it was far away. it allowed me to get out of my confort zone and experience a new place and new people. it taught me that some people are really sheltered and some arent. the school taught me how being an athlete can really help you out when it comes socializing in a new place.

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

i wish i had known that it was going to be so demanding . i wish i had known that it was going to be so much work and that being 12 hours from home would have me wanting to experience life a little too quickly at one time. i needed way better time management
