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

For parents, allow your children to express where they want to go and also what they want to do in life. Have wisdom when deciding where your child wants to go. Do not allow them to waste their time and your money, but allow them to attend a college where they will learn life experiences. Students, do not waste your time at college. It is there to prepare you for life's chalenges and our changing world.

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

You don't have to know what you want to do right away. Take your time. Go to a school that YOU want to and look at your options. Take a couple classes that sound interesting to you and see what you like. When looking for schools go to the schools and take a tour to see what you fell.

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

While it may seem boring, do the research to find the college that best fits you. It seems time consuming, but this is a decision that will largely decide your future for you. Consider plenty of colleges and don't make a rushed decision, it could be a costly mistake. Don't take out more student loans than what you need! Try to buy books online (on campus they are ridiculous!). Remember to make time for you, even if it means skipping a party. If you are not a morning person, don't register for morning classes (seems obvious, but you'd be surprised). Fill your FAFSA out on time so you can get some decent financial aid. Scholarships will get you into schools you never dreamed of attending because of your financial situation. Don't procrastinate, you can fall behind very quickly (and it may become hard to catch up). Stay safe, especially after drinking ( a lot of BAD things can happen if you don't). Never lose sight of the future, and always remember why you are attending college.

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

Parking!!! It's a nightmare and I'm always late to class because of it. Horrible!!!

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates can range from being very involved in class discussion and activities, to being unattentive, but I find my classmates to all do well enough to easily pass the classes they are in.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for being a small, liberal arts campus, with a good amount of commuters; and also being known for being a tight community.

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

I believe that the begining of the process starts with the parents. I would start by saying, listen completely to what your child likes and dislikes about the college that he or she looks at. The parents should know that this decision is completely their child's, not the parent's. Most importantly, the advice I would give to a student would be to go with your instinct on how you feel and what you like about a certain college or university. Start out figuring out which sized school you like and then find the school that makes you feel most comfortable. A college decision is where you will be spending the next years of your life and it's important to find one that will provide both academic as well as social needs. Students should also know that living on campus will be the best thing for them. Its a way for students to learn to live on their own and make their own decisions, while still having their parents not so far away to make sure they can still succeed. It's most definitely important that they succeed too, because college will be the gateway to their future.

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

I would advise students and parents to look very closely at their financial award packets that they receive from different schools. When looking at outside scholarships, it is important to find scholarships that are renewable instead of those that are one-time-only. It would be smart to check into the scholarships and grants offered by the school to ensure that they are renewable as well. I would also advise students and parents to factor in textbook expenses when budgeting for college because it is one of those unexpectede expenses that is not cheap. It is also important to factor in miscelleneous expenses because sometimes you never know what will come up.

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

I wish I had known how to maintain certain types of financial aid because every semester I seem to need more and more money. I also wish I had known that the textbooks were so expensive and that you don't get much money when you sell them back. I wish I had known better what I was getting myself into academically.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think a person who is looking for a big school may not want to attend this school. Also, someone looking for a large amount of diversity or a fairly equal amount of all types of people should not come here.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Elmhurst College is known for providing students with the opportunity to receive a well-rounded education, and an one that can be close to home.

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

My best advice to new college students, is to research any schools that you may be interested in attending. Attending a college or university will prove to be one of the important decisions a young person can make. College can be a scary experience is you are not prepared, so just ask questions if you are unsure of something. Call advisors and campus relations if you are interested in attending a particular school. They are there for a reason. If they are not very attentive or helpful, that could be an indication of how they will respond to a students needs while they are in school. Another helpful piece of advice, is to apply early and to many schools. If you have your heart set on a particular school, that's great, but have alternative plans, just in case. The more options you have, the better you will feel. Be proactive about the situation, and don't take it lightly. College is probably one of the biggest and most difficult decisions to date for a young person about to take the next step.

Before you decide on which college is right for you, be sure to visit the campus first. Pamphlets provided from the colleges only show the best aspects of the school; if possible, see if you can sit in on some classes, see if that school has the kind of technology and resources to provide you with the best education possible in the field you want to pursue.

What's unique about your campus?

Classes are small, teachers are very friendly and always available if you need help. There are many resources to help you in gaining experience in whatever field you go into.

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

Elmhurst was smaller than most of the other colleges and was a private school. One of the most unique aspects at Elmhurst was that my advisor was supportive of my decisions academically and was concerned with my progress in school as well as out of school. Also I was able to study abroad and have the classes count as general education courses, which allowed me to gradute early. Also having smaller class rooms was great, because you get more feedback about how you are progressing in the class, which helped out when it came time to study for exams.

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

The most important thing is going to a college where you feel you will be able to grow in many different aspects of life and also a place where you will want to be part of the institution through sports, clubs, academics., working on campus or some other way. Look for a college that provides opportunities such as internships, mentoring programs, and study abroad opportunities. These are great ways to grow and also to have an experience of a life time, especially studying abroad. Also when you are at college try to enjoy the activities as much as possible. They are a key component of what will make your college experience unique and full of memories.

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

Elmhurst gives you control of your future. It 's easy to get into the classes that you want and to take courses that you want to take. The advisors are very helpful and are tied to the success of their advisees. Elmhurst allowed me to achieve the goals that I set for myself, while also helping me grow as a person from the campus environment and the courses that were required to take. It was not only a great place for college, but also was a great place that helped build a solid foundation for the rest of my life .

There is a variety of different kinds of classmates from jokers to "nerds", everyone has something new to bring to the table.

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

Find the college that is right for you. It's out there somewhere. When choosing a school, think about possible majors that you would be interested in, class sizes and the distance away from your home. Make sure to visit the campuses at the top of your list, because you might just get the exciting feeling that "Hey, this college is for me!" Only you know what is the right fit for you. Once you get to college, you can be anyone that you want to be. You will meet so many new people that won't know what you were like in high school, so if you want to be more outgoing or more this or that, then go for it! College is a new experiance, so get ready for a new you. Don't be afraid, the other freshmen are all in the same boat as you, so just get together and have a great time. Also remember your academics. College is the start of the rest of your life, the choices you make will affect you forever. But don't worry, it's much easier than the "real world". So have fun and don't hold back!
