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

Can you ever change the past? Would you want to, if you could? I was told, in high school, never to open an essay with a rhetorical question. Since entering college, I've heard from various professors all kinds of nutty statements that I will disregard before graduating--but I have learned other things which I hope I will never forget. The first of which is perhaps the harshest: yes, he really did just use you for sex. And he'll keep it up if you let him. Guys suck in high school, but especially in college. The hardest lessons to learn are the ones that hit closest to home. Once you learn that one, you'll quickly learn when to take a drunk friend to the hospital--if you aren't sure, take them. And if you go out on a week night, set at least 5 alarms so you can make it to class the next day. The classes you'll take your first 2 years may not teach you anything conceptually (they aren't like high school APs) but they will teach you how to learn, which is more valuable in many ways.

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

Good classes, small classes, fun classes. I brag about the football team, because we are awesome. I brag about my friends on campus because they are amazing.

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

I would advise myself not to worry. Even though college is stressful, if you stay focused and determined, anything is possible. College is a time for discovering yourself and reaching new limits in your academic career. As long as you are serious about your school work and remain focused, college can be easy. College is fun, exciting, and full of new surprises. College is a place where friends are made and life careers begin. I would go back and tell myself that college will be a wonderful new experience and there is nothing to be afraid of!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Our school is highly known for the music program--we are at a good location being near Chicago. Many internships are available for students to recieve. Our education and nursing majors are also two of the largest.

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

I would tell myself to go to college and be the person that you really want to be. In high school you tend to feed off of your friends and have a little of their personality in yours (especially in a small school); you may gossip too much or get into too many fights or drama, and it may not be the person you really want to be. Go to college and join clubs, make new friends and make your own personality stand out. And don't forget to change the world!

Do not think that senior year is a blow-off year. It is really important to put effort into all your classes even though you are almost graduated.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I recomment that students go to class as much as possible and ask teachers for help whenever they need it. The teachers here are always willing to help you if you are struggling.

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

I would advise myself to participate in many activities on campus and join a sport as well. In addition, I would tell myself to look out for any opportunities to find friends and interact with more people on campus. I'd also tell myself to use more resources open to students that need help with school work.

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

There was nothing I wish I would have known before coming to Elmhurst College.

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

I was very focused in high school because I knew what I needed to do to get to college. I wouldn't do anything different. One thing I would say is not to be afraid to get involved.

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

Probably food prices. They are way overpriced.

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

College is an intimidating venture from being dependent upon others to being an independent individual. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would advise myself to take that leap of faith into an unknown world and be confident that I am not the only ackward or apprehensive person partaking in this new experience. The transition between adulthood and childhood is not defined by the age you are or the year of school you are in, but how you handle the insecurities and the unknowns. I would stress most importantly that you are never too old to get and strive for an education, but it has great benefits to take the path at an earlier age. Being aware of your goals, strive to be the best, and never succumb to others' pressures and influences that could adversely affect your future.

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

I wish I had known that the community of older students was small. Also, I wish I had investigated more social and/or school organizations that I could partake in or join for a fuller acedemic experience.

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

In order for parents/students to find the right college they need to take their time. Be sure to visit many colleges to get a feel for the campus life. Also, I would recommend starting at a community college in order to take general education courses at a lower cost. This will also give the student the opportunity to learn about their interests which should help with selecting a major and area of concentration.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who wants to attend this school should be open minded and tolerant of other cultures.
