Edinboro University is spread out and spacious.

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

I would tell the parents and / or students that they should find a college that really excites the student and that will push him or her to get involved on and off campus.

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

I would tell parents/students to look at every aspect: affordability, availabilty, weather, and of course the curiculum. I would tell them that they should be in groups and clubs and to find a support network. To the students, I would say to have fun but to balance that with your school work. Don't slack off.

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

Selecting a college is a difficult but very important thing a someone's life. The first thing that should be taken into consideration is the availability and quality of the students' desired field of study. If they are undecided about a major, select somewhere that has a broad range of available courses of study. Another important thing that might be important to people is location. Decide how far they would be willing to go and look for colleges in that area. Visit as many colleges as you can. Some people say you will get "the feeling" when you step onto the right campus for you. Cost and availability of financial aid is something else to consider. To get the most out of the college experience, the student really has to stay focused. It is so easy to get off track and focus on the less important things about college. Having a social life is important and beneficial to the college experience, but it shouldn't be the most important thing. Chosing the right college for you can seem like an overwhelming task, but taking the time to find it is definitley worth being happy for four years.

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

The Food, the old dorms, a few of the really bad professors

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Edinboro is best known for its Educational programs. If you want to become a teacher Edinboro is the place to be. Edinboro?s staff are masters in their field and that is an important quality to have when teaching those who want to become teachers.

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

I would tell them to start looking for a college once they entered high school and start applying for scholarships as soon as they can. Make sure you choose a school not because your friend is going there, but because it?s the school that best suites you. Do research on the school, and if possible visit the campus and talk to staff and current students and make sure to ask lots of questions and take notes. And when in college keep an open mind about campus clubs, so you can get to know a variety of people and start networking. Don?t be afraid to talk to professors, they are there to help you. What I?ve learned in my college career is that it?s not hard, just very time consuming. So study, always ask questions and smile.

What's unique about your campus?

Edinboro has to be the most diverse college in Pennsylvania. There are people of many ages, races, and disabilities. I think that is a very important quality to have in a college, because you meet so many people and learn about different cultures. It helps one grow and makes them a well-rounded person.

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

To find the right college, you need to be picky. Now, picky is not always the best way to go through life, but when picking a college, one can afford to be picky. It is necessary to look at aspects like size, teacher-student ratio, cost, location, the specific major you're looking into, housing options, and affordability among others. Think of it this way, if you are spending the next 4+ years of your life, wouldn't you want it to be in a place that you hold dear and love? Before you decide to go to a college, visit it! Take a walk around, breathe in the air, make sure that you can picture yourself in the environment. It is so important to go to a school that you love, and if you walk into a college-decision blindly, then it is almost guaranteed to set you up for an "experience" like none other! All I can say is that college is the best time of a person's life, and to make it the best, you have to pick the right type of college for you. Happy hunting!!!

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

The true weather conditions, it gets very cold here in the winter! I also wish that I would have known exactly what I wanted to major in! I changed my major once and I wish I would have come here with that particular major. I also wish i would have applied for more scholarships and grants. College is very expensive!!!

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

My school is basically dead most of most of the time.

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

The best piece of advice I could give to someone about finding the right college is to find out what the town is like when school is not in session. If the town is empty during the summer, you can basically tell the school is going to have limited social activities. If the town does not revolve around the school, there will probably be some fun activities to do.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about the school is the small size.

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

Don't pick somewhere that will be easy for you. At the undergraduate level it doesn't really matter about a name either. Try to be outgoing, at least for your first year. You'll meet your closest friends in the dorm, so I'd recommend living on campus--at least at first.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who aren't very good at school or like to just glide through it. The school is good for people with disabilities and in general is pretty cheap.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you want to have a rapport with professors, this reeally isn't the place. Also, if you are intelligent and like to be pushed, this school is more for people who are lazy. If you like to have activities to do, this might not be the place since this town is in the middle of nowhere.

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

First off think about yourself, what you like, what you dislike, and what will make you happy throughout your life! College is a way to prepare you for a fulfilling future of your OWN choosing. Follow your talents and passions and you will be rewarded with a satisfying and happy future!

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

I wish I would have known how poorly the scheduling process was set up. It needs much improvement!
