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

The 'college experience' has presented me with a great many things including life lessons and a peek at what things can be like in the real world. In college in order to move forward you really have to try and open yourself up first be open to new experiences and adventures that could happen around campus. Out of my personal experience I've received a few good friends who unknowingly taught me new things and have opened up new outlets within myself that I knew were there I just ignored them. I myself personally have also become much more outspoken. It has been valuable to attend simply because it is an entirely new learning experience from highschool, in the begining your mindset begins to shift over slowly and you may not realize it until someone mentions something to you but you grown in more ways than one. Having to balance your own finances and class work and friends is very viable to how things will be when you start your career choice or chosen job. Attending college is a learning experience that I am glad I followed through with.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There is no one person who shouldn't attend. However if a student isn't crazy about an environment that snows alot and has only a handful of things they can do directly on campus then I would suggest not coming here. There are things to do on campus, it's just most of the things people do here have come from their own ideas and bouts of randomness.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I would have to say the most frustrating thing would be when it snows really badly and they cannot keep up with how much snowfall there is cancel classes because there are kids in wheel chairs who get stuck in the snow and have a difficult time getting to class. In fact everyone has a difficult time getting to class. I know some people just don't show up.

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

I have decided to attend a trade school simply because it has given me the opportunity to graduate at a faster pace than the traditional junior college. I am a 20 year old single parent of a 2 year old. I also work as a full-time administrative assistant/ customer service employee. I work 8-5 M-F and attend school 5:30-10:15 M-Th. In choosing a technical school I have currently lost a lot of time with my son, but he is my inspiration and our situation can only get better. My college has taught me how to act in the business world and has also given me the chance to share my knowledge with my fellow employees as well as managers. They have given me the tools to better myself in my current position. My boss sometimes asks me for help when it comes to programs such as Excel and Word. That makes me feel very proud of myself. It has been valuable to attend this particular school because the school schedule allows me to work and provide for my son as well as take major related courses.

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

One very important lesson I have learned from my college experience is to stay focused on you goals. For my first two years at the University of California, San Diego, I knew I loved psychology but did not know where I wanted to go with it. By the end of that summer, I rediscovered my passion for helping other people and decided to pursue nursing as a career. Within the next three years, I was able to graduate out of UCSD with a major in Psychology and a minor in Public Service, specializing in health. I was able to in three years what many students take between four to five years to accomplish. Now, I have gotten accepted into the Georgetown University School of Nursing to get my Bachelors of Science in Nursing within fifteen months. Prior to entering UCSD, I was usually just told what to do and everything was just handed to me. Staying away from family and attending a challenging school taught me a lot about myself and how to be responsible. I feel like I would have never been able to become so independent and motivated if I did not go to UCSD.

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

From attending college here in Denver, I have found that I want more in my life than what is held beyond college doors. Im actually wanting to transfer to Penn State University, where I feel that I can achieve my Bacholers Degree in Forensic Science. After attending school and college and retrieve medical lisences, I have discovered a continued path in my life through school where I can achieve and accomplish not just dreams, but my future and what will be.

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

As a freshman college student, there have been many life lessons I have learned thusfar throughout my college experience. I have grown to become a very responsible and independent young adult who holds herself accountable for doing --or not doing- assignments and other important school related tasks, and to become a more self-sufficient student. I have also learned to best use the resources that has been alloted by my college to my advantage. My time management skills have become a dominant fixture that I use to accomplish the tasks that are give by my instructors andthe other significant duties of life. My communication skills have definately matured from this experience. I have learned the proper and appropiate ways to communicate with my peers and instructors. It has been valuable to attend college. Other than to receive an education, it has significant to gain these important skills, because I do not know whereelse I would have learned them. College is important for those who want to grow and learn things about life and themselves that they probably whould have not learned anywhere else.

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

To be quite honest, I wasn't a hard worker in my first year and a half of college which led to me taking time off. But now that I've taken time off I have come to realize the importance of school and what I did wrong and what I did right while I was attending school. It's about teaching myself to do what I don't want to do. There were days when I didn't want to do anything for school, but it's teaching myself things such as discipline and determination that are things that professors can't teach, but hope that their students develop. I am excited to go back to school and plan on being even more determined and even more disciplined as ever. Those are the things that make college valuable, the things that can't necessarily be taught, but developed over time.

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

My experience has been very valuable to me 1st and for all I have learned CPR, and how to help a choking person from adults to children. I value that experience the most because I could help others including my infant: Jordan Moussa. he is my son and I love that I could help him when time comes with basic life support, airway, and choking problems that I might face in my life time. I also would like to join the fire departement one day because I like to help others and help the community and serve my city.

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

I started attending college in 2008. In the last two years I've taken classes in Intro accounting, Accounting Info Systems, Intro Psychology, Intro Sociology, and Art. I am currently enrolled in an Algebra and Human Biology class. My college experience has been bitter sweet. I've learned if you want it, go get it, don't just sit and wait for it to fall into your lap. Being a student who has zero parental contribution has been the most difficult. Entering college atmosphere after taking a year off school was also difficult, as I realized if you don't use the knowledge acquired in high school you tend to get "rusty" so to say (refering to Algebra). My college experience has taught me to be a self sufficient, strong willed student. If you give up because your studies are too difficult than you don't move forward, but if you fail and try again until you succeed, you prosper. I find college to be very valuable to me, for it has opened my eyes to many different careers and fields of study.

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

I have learned a lot about myself, my work ethic, and also a lot about chemistry and biology. My major is Biology-Premed, so learning about biology and chemistry is very interesting to me. I have learned that I need to study more, and work harder in order to stay ahead. I have also learned that I am a very competitive person, who detests failing. Attending college has been valuable because it has taught me several life-lessons, along with preparing me for a career as a pediatrician in the future.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wishes to attend this school is looking at cost, overall education, and campus life oppotunities, Edinboro offers an above standard education at minimal cost. Also, students have countless clubs, greek life opportunities, athletic oppotunities, and educational opportunities available to them at any given moment.

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

My college experience so far has helped me to mature in many ways. It has also helped me to see that I would really like to teach at a college as well. Getting to know the math teachers here has inspired me to become a math teacher myself. This experience has been very valuable because it has made me the person I am today and has put my on the path to reach my goals.
