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

Make sure that you look into what college choices you have and make sure that you are getting the max amount of financial aid. Also make sure that you go to orientation so that you can make some friends before school starts.

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

That the living arrangements can be kind of tight and uncomfortable for some students.

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

Students: It is important to apply to as many colleges as you can. Then, take the time to prioritize what you realistically want out of your college experience; do you want the top job? do you want to travel abroad? do you learn better in a small class atmosphere? Then evaluate the institutions based on campus visits and talking with students who attend the school (and make sure it's not only the tour guides who you talk to). Once at the school, remember to stay focused on what is important to you, grades are important but ultimately you will learn more from the out-of-class experiences! Parents: Remember, you might be paying for it, but it is the students life and they will be happiest and learn the most if you allow them to make their own decisions. Help them remember to ask the important questions, but let the decisions be theirs.

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

There are several issues that have occurred recently regarding racial/cultural/religious differences that have painted the student population poorly.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

If you are not familiar with where to go for what and are not comfortable asking for what you need, it is difficult to be successful here (academically, socially, financially etc). The help is available, and fantastic, but you have to ask for it.

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

Prospective college students really need to make the right choice for themselves, not their parents. They need to go somewhere that will suit them and give them what they need in they future, along with their college experience.

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

Apply early!!! Waiting until the last minute to apply for college will force you to just 'settle' on a school that accepts you. Apply early enough so you have to time to go over all the pro's and con's of each different institution that accepts you. As far as making the most of it, HAVE FUN!!!! Study hard, and enjoy yourself. The people you meet in college will be your friends for life! GET INVOLVED!

The classmates are fun to work with. the director of our program wants to have a good relationship with the classmates who are in our class and wants to hangout with them so we can get to know eachother more. Everyone is nice to eachother in this prgram. everyone has a good time and we make it fun for the professors. we have a good time also in the downtown elmhurst area on weekends or just for fun or even on break like winter break. everyone here wants to have a good education. we have learned alot.

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

Elmhurst College is very student oriented. There are organizations and activites that take place around campus to fit with everyone's interests. Also, on campus there are both quiet places to sit and study as well as areas to visit and socialize with other students. It has a great atmosphere for learning and meeting new people. The faculty are easy to talk to and very helpful.

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

Finding the right fit for college can mean the difference between enjoying your four years of classes or dreading each day that you are on campus. Although there is no sure way to know if you are picking the right college, the best advise I can give is to spend time on the campus. Talk with students who are currently enrolled and find out what they think about the school. Students can give you an inside view of what life is like on the campus. By talking with a variety of students you can learn the ins and outs of what the professors are like, what there is to do on campus, and even how it is living in the dorms. This inside look can help you not only pick the school that fits with your needs, but it can also give you the tools to make the most of your college experience.

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

I wish I known more about the services available at the library when I started attending this college. I did not know that there were room that could be checked out for studying in. Also, it was not until I took a technology class that I learned how to use the library database for papers and other research projects.

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

Know what kind of classes you want to take, see what is the ideal calssroom setting for you. If you don't know what you want to do right off hand that's okay. Start looking for financial aid early on.

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

Some of the school's individual ways of doin certain things.

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

Find a college that is small enough that you will be known and cared about. A college that prepares you to succeed in life, not just in academics. Find a college that challanges you to be a better person and to do good in the world. Look for a college in a beautiful setting that will inspire you to want to be on campus. Join student groups and if they do not have the group you want then start one. I found all of these things at Elmhurst College and they really helped me. I am in law school now and stay in touch with many people from my undergrad, including professors and administrators. School is what you make it, there will be good and bad everywhere as in life, do your best to look for good and you will always find it! Good luck in college!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People that do not like community or academia.

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

The best thing I can share with you is visit the campus. It is like picking out anything if you feel like home their and are comfortable with the environment then you will know that you belong there. They must offer your programs, do your research carefully and don't let anyone make the decision for you. This is something that you need to do on your own.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

This is a school for students who are goal oriented and motivated to try new things. Students should want to have a new experiences. Elmhurst focuses on education as their top priority. Students should be able to balance their social life as well as their academic. Both are important on this campus. There are so many different groups to be involved in and it is looked highly on when you are involved.

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

I brag most about Elmhurt's education program. After graduation I felt so prepared to enter the real world. They helped make the transitions through the program easily. Getting us out in the field my first year of school is also something that I liked because most schools say they are preparing you but do not and Elmhurst really does.

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

It is very small, kinda like highschool, where everybody knows everybody, so socially not "the college experience" but academically amazing.

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

Do not worry so much about the money, loans can be paid back later. College can either be the best time of your life or the worst, it all depends on what you make of it. So pick a school thats a good fit for you and has a good program for your major.

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

Small classes and excellent professors who are always availabe to help.
