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

In order to find the right college, you must look around. Visit some the campus of some schools that interest you. See if you can sit in on one of the classes and get a feel for the university. To make the most of your college experience it is important to keep a balance between your school work and your social life.

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

The worst thing about Evangel is that there isn't very good communication between departments and offices. I feel like they are a bit unorganized.

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

Evangel University is strongly concerned about allowing students explore their beliefs and views while learning in a structure academic environment. Because it is affiliated with a particular Christian denomination, certain values are emphasized, however other values are not degraded in any way. I was attracted to the wholesome atmosphere of the campus and impressed that academic excellence was not sacrificed to maintain the high moral standards of the university.

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

In order to find the right college, students must remain open to multiple possibilities. I would encourage prospective students to know what they desire in an institution of higher learning and then visit the universities in which they are interested. Commonly, students will realize during these visits whether the school fits their needs. By interacting with the current students and professors, prospective students gain insight into the personality of the school and the standards of academic coursework. Additionally, prospective students should research the success of the school?s alumni in their careers and determine if those results are appealing in relation to their own future work. Most college students who use the resources the school offers, take their studies seriously, invest in their health and well-being, and cultivate social relationships will consider their college experience a success. Excellent time-management is a necessary skill in the fast-paced life of a student. By recognizing their own learning styles and forming good study habits, students will use their time in school more efficiently than those who fail to do so. Ultimately, to make the most of their experience, college students should prepare for the future but live in the present.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing is the cost. Of course when one attends a private university this is to be expected. However, I would be in favor of the university offering more scholarships to its students.

My classmates are goal-oriented--focused on the fact that one day they will be able to make an impact in the lives of others--and are people oriented, focused on making strong relationships that may last a lifetime.

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

When choosing a college, make sure you feel comfortable with the decision. If you feel any anxiety about that decision, it is probably not the right school for you. Further, look at all the aspects of the school. If there are rules to be followed, make sure you agree with them. Be sure that you like the environment of the campus and the classes. A great way to get a feel for the campus and classes is to talk to current students and to sit-in on the classes. Also, ask people in your major how they like the classes and if the classes are pertinent to their career. Lastly, make sure you like the people in general because if you don't like the people than your college experience will not be as enjoyable.

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

The worst thing about my school is the curfew. I feel that as an adult who has a curfew, I am not being treated as an adult. Although the time for curfew is tolerable, I don't understand the need for it.

Do not decide on a college that your friends want to go to. Decide on your own because there is the right college out there for everyone

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

The most important thing in finding a college is to interview people who actually attend that college currently to find out what the climate of the student population is. The most important thing about making the most of the college experience is to remember to keep your priorities in line. It's easy to allow school, work, dating, and friendships to all become the "one thing" in your life, but if you keep them all in balance, you will have an amazing time in college.

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

That my dorm, Burgess, was where all of the whores live.

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

A piece of advice I would give future college students would be to look not only at the prospective college's academic programs but also at their values. In my opinion, it is easier to work hard and be fully dedicated when you are working for something you believe in, rather than just trying to pass a class. My professors challenge me in every project and assignment I complete to see if what I am doing is benefitting others. We have many debates and discussions in our classes about how that particular subject can help others. It helps encourage me to work harder and achieve my best and then use my ideas out in the community.

What's unique about your campus?

The Best think about my school is the small classes. I have a hard time paying attention, and with small classes, I get more one-on-one time with the professors and there is less to distract me. I also love the Christian atomsphere and how that is woven into all of the classes. Every professor teaches us not only the required information, but how we can show Christ in that area of study.

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

I highly reccomend a liberal arts education because it gives you a wide wariety of educational and practical life experiences while you grow into mature adulthood. So often, high school juniors and seniors enter a specific field of study thinking they know what they want, but as you grow and change during these formative years, you learn more about the world and more about yourself and your attitudes toward certain things change. I entered college thinking I knew exactly what I wanted, but I ended up changing my major twice (my previous majors later became my minors). As a college senior, my advice to students anticipating college is to first, take time to learn more about yourself and what you like to do and what you are good at. Take advantage of your Guidance Counselor by taking career and personality tests to discover your strengths. When you enroll in college courses, even if you think you know exactly what field you want to study, take some random classes that interest you and get involved in various extra-cirricular activities that provide you with opportunities to network with like minds. Trust me - you'll need the support!

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

The friendly atmosphere, the types of people that attend Evangel, its high accreditation, and the variety of opportunities that are available to students.

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

If college is all about learning to prepare you for your future than find a good college which is more focused on the education each students recieves than the play and fun that the campus provides. Having fun is not something that should ever be over looked but should set within bounderies. A school can claim to provide a good education to the students but until the teachers are devoted to the school and the students and care about each students success the teaching may take place but the students level of caring will decrease their ability to ever become a good student.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the teachers and how involved they are in each students education.

My classmates, while varying in interests, are for the most part easy to connect with and pretty fun to work with - although you will always have your snobby and/or just plain weird exceptions, which can be expected at any school.

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

When choosing a college, don't put all of your focus in one area, i.e., academics or scholarship opportunities. College is more than an education; it's an experience. In the same way, don't forget that you are indeed paying for an education and you must apply yourself to make those expenses pay off. Look for a school that has decent resources in your field of interest - they don't have to be the best of the best but you should definitely visit the campus and see for yourself what's available. If you aren't sure what you want to study, look for a school that has multiple opportunities to get involved. Being involved with activities going on at your school will reveal what your true interests are, as well as introduce you to people who appreciate the same things you do. Whether it's musical ensembles or intramural sports, choosing to be involved will give you lifelong friends that may end up in your workplace - or wedding party! Finally, make it your goal to score an internship or study abroad before you graduate - both are invaluable opportunities that you will greatly appreciate and absolutely not regret.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The rules are the most frustrating. Having to abide by curfew until you are of Jr. status and having to live on campus unless you are a commuter or 23 interferes with academics, financial situations, and of course your social life. Consequences for breaking rules can be pretty steep too - don't expect to get away with a warning - you will lose privileges immediately and may even lose scholarship money if you are so much as caught at a restaurant drinking an alcoholic beverage. If you can't stand strict rules, this is a frustrating school to attend.
