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

If i could go back to Bertie County S.T.E.M. High School I would explain the big difference between college and high school. I would tell them how time management is a very important factor. I would have to express to them colleg e is a big difference from high school and you have to have a very high maturity level. No one tells you what to do at all its all up to you, you make your own decisions. Even though you make your own decisions you have to realize that every cause has an effect so there will be a consequence. Last but not least college is what you make it so have fun but make sure you stay focused.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any kind of person is able to attend this school. To be a historically black college it is very diverse. Everyone has their own culture and traditions and they have the right to express them.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

I would have to say the most unique thing about my school is that the professor are willing to help you at all times. It gives me a security feeling knowing that I can always go to them for help and that they are willing to sit, talk, and listen to my problems and help me resolve it all together.

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

Endless information and endless experiences in my year and half that I have been to shcool. Attending college for me is not only a dream for me but a dream for my whole family. My parents did not go to college but they manage to make it doing what they know. Me going to college and graduating is my top priority and my highest value right now. By me doing this I will be a role model for my sisters and brothers, knowing that they are able to go to college also but they are able to accompish more they ever imangined. My college experience has opened my eyes to endless possibilities of what I can accomplish that there is no backing down once you start. Attending college, and having a college experience is my life, this is what I want to do to become more advance in school, at any job, and in life. This is what I need in order to fulfill my dreams and to become that role model I always wanted to be.

What kind of person should attend this school?

It does not matter what kind of person should attend the school. As long as you are willing to do the work, time, and put effort in what you do then you are able to go to any school including this one. It does not matter what they look like as long as they are willing to work for it.

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

I have gotten the chance so far to begin becoming well trained and proficient in my career choice of Air Traffic Control. I go to class with a positive attitude and practice scenarios in lab everyday while trying my hardest and pushing myself to be the best that I can be! I want to excel at a career I am so passionate about achieving. Next semester I will be taking 16 credit hours, working part-time and will be fulfilling a minimum requirement of 24 hours of lab time scenarios, which I plan to greatly exceed to get all the practice I can. I am dedicating a year of my life and all the money I have saved to reach my goal. I know I am just one of billions doing this same thing but I know I have it in me to be successful, so I am taking the opportunity this beautiful country has given to me and I am aspiring to fulfill my dream. I’ve challenged myself in various environments and I’ve used them to find out who I am; I’ve used them to find my passion.

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

The thing I have gotten out of college so far is that if you want something done, you must be persistant until it is done. I feel that this is an important lesson to learn because the world is full of people who need a little extra push to keep from procrastinating. So this will help me get through life and be more sucessful.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is its small size. Classes rarely exceed 45 students and more commonly there are 20 or less in a class. This allows more personal teaching styles.

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

The worst thing about my school is the administration. They are very unhelpful, and just seem to be aggravaited with every student when you ask for help.

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

The most important thing that I have learn about my college experience is that learning how to speak to advisors are important because as you go through changes through life as well as the world changing you find out you need more education to be able to live. I was very happy to earn my degree but I learned that a career in education require more along with life long living.

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

I wish I had known that the program was not accredited.

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

Id like to start by saying that before I was accepted to attend UTI in Rancho Cucamonga I was desperate to return every sacrafice my parents ever made so that I could have wonderful life that many kid's never get to expierience. My mother defected from communist Romania in 1974 in pursuit of freedom in the United States. When she arrived in the country she had two hundred dollars in her pockets and the responsibility of lmmediately finding work and a place to stay. My fathers side of the family were also immigrants from China with the same responsibilties upon arriving in the U.S. I feel so accomplished to have the oppurtunity to recieve the proper training to start a career that will not only grant me the life I've always wanted, but also give my parent's a chance to see, all their struggle's in life really paid off, Finally they can live the real American Dream. We will be able to build memories they couldn't possibly have imagined before I had this oppurtunity, UTI really changed my path in life greatly. Im so thankful, and this scholarship would help me greatly as well.

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

I've learned a lot out of my college experience so far. I've learned that my education has to be more important than any kind of social life. I study more on my own so that I can make sure I fully understand everything. I have a 4.0 GPA, and I work hard for it.

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

When I started attending Elizabeth City State University, I felt out of place and depressed. As I gave the school a chance I found a family and home there. I am currently taking eighteen credit hours and have made strait A's up til this point. I have made many friends, and helped a lot of others in reaching their goals. As an Education minor I was able to view a class and this experience helped me to know what I wanted to expand on in my classroom. Even better I learned what I didn't like done in a classroom. My eyes were open for the first time in my field of study and it was amazing. I couldn't have made it where I am today if it wasen't for the wonderful ECSU staff and my kind and helpful peers. There hasen't been one day that I felt out of place, ECSU is truely a large family.

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

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

So far, my time in college has taught me to be more responsible, from waking up early enough to get to class on time to making sure I always have enough quarters to wash my clothes. I have also learned that it's not enough to be confident in yourself. You have to show that you are confident and work dilligently at acheiving all of your goals, whether it's introducing yourself to new people or pulling out of a difficult class with an A. The time I have spent on campus is very valuable because it helped me to grow alot in only one semester.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who looks to become a successful person in the future by keeping on the right path.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is not willing to further his/her education and instead looks to start trouble around campus. I think those people should wait and come when they get their priorities straight.

Describe the students at your school.

If I had to describe my classmates I would say they are ambitious and motivated. They believe in academics first and extracurricular activities second. So, I commend them for being responisble and knowing why they are in college and that is to get an education.

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

There are a lot of differences between high school and college both socially and academically. The academic challenge is probably the most crucial and requires the most adjustments for a successful first year of college. During high school, class attendance is mandatory and the academic success of the student is monitored closely by the parents, teachers and administration of the school. In college, the student has more of the responsibility for their own academic success, and although they have a strong amount of support, the student is forced to make choices that will guarantee a successful outcome. The ability to prioritize and to organize is of upmost importance to the college student. Unlike the high school student that may have parents or teachers to keep them on point, the college student must be self-motivated. In retrospect, my advice to others would be to stay focused on what is most important, your academic studies. Extracurricular activities should not dominate and overtake you, but you as the student must find a balance between extracurricular activities and academics. Learning to organize and prioritze while in high school will be beneficial to the college experience and life after college in the career field.

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

I brag about the fact that my teachers are one on one with the students, I love the fact that I can go to my teachers and get all the help I need to succeed in their class. I know right many of my friends that go to larger universities can barely ask their teachers a simple question, so I am very blessed to have such caring and considerate teachers.
