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.

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.

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 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.
