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

Do not go to a private college unless you are on a scholarship that covers your tuition. Best idea is to go to community for the first two years to pay less for the basic courses, and then transfer. it saves money.

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

The first thing I would say to a parent or student when searching for the right college is base your decsion on not just one aspect of the school. Eventhough a school may have a top program in what your are going to study it is also important to take into consideration the environment, students, staff, financially suitable, as well as other extra perks they may offer. FDU is a school that not only has one of the best nursing schools in the state, but it has a extremely helpful staff and is always willing to help you gain all the knowledge that you wish to accumulate. Some time you hear people say, "I heard that was a party school". Dont go by comments of others find out first hand. "Party" may not be the correct word, it is important to have a social experience in college it prepares you for life it does not always in include alcohol. Follow your gut when it comes to making your college or university choice. :) AND dont be afraid of going away from home it will make you a stronger and independent individual. REMEMBER TO CHOOSE A CARRER YOU WILL HAVE FUN WITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

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

For students: Make sure you include your parents when it comes to choosing colleges. They will help prevent you from getting in over your head financially. It is easy to lose connection and communication with your parents once you live on campus and start governing your own life. Don't keep them in the dark, and try to stay just as connected as you were before you left for college. Parents always know when something is wrong, and can help you move past any problems you are having. For parents: Kids are just as scared of being on their own as you are of letting them go off on their own. Stay connected, but don't smother and try not to pass judgement. College students are stressed out enough as is.

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

I wish I was better emotionally prepared for college. The school is pretty much run by greek life, which is full of drama. Its very easy to get sucked in overwhelmed by drama, problems, and negative things. I wish I had a better ability to keep my cool and stay focused.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates all vary from one another. Some are quite and some are loud. We all have different approaches and outlooks on life, and we appreciate listening and hearing what eachothers opinions are. Everyone respects eachoher although most of the time we do not all agree with eachother because of how different we all are from one another.

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

Advice I would give parents and/ or students about finding the right college would be to look into every aspect about the school. Encounters such as academics,class size, social life, diversity, variety, extra curricular activities,tuition,and faculty are very important factors to look in to. Make sure the school suits your personality and comfort level, because you will be spending quite some time there. You should also visit the school ,feel the atmosphere and interact with a few people before making a decision. That also helped me in my college making decision. As for making the most of your college experience I learned one thing that I will never forget. " its what you make of it" . In the end, it is really about what you made out of the school, not what the school made out of you.

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

I wish I had known how much of a competitive school Fairleigh Dickinson was before I attended. There is much diversity from all over the world in my school, and each student thinks differently, but in the end most students are fighting for the best grade.

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

I believe that finding the right college is the key to ones success. Students along with parents are vital in making this life chaning decision. To me, it was hard choosing a college that catered to my needs. A balance between academics and personal needs is important. One must take into account not only the ranking of the school in the area one is interested in pursuing a career, but most importantly ambiance. Investigate every aspect of the potential choice, from location to staff. Most of one?s time will be at that particular institution and one needs to feel comfortable and accepted. It is important to remember that a college career prepares one for their future career. It is not all books and information. Look for a school that has hands on training, one that puts the theory into practice. One that doesn?t look for extrinsic grains but rather making an army of well rounded citizens that will make a change in the field they pursue. Another important key is to visit the schools, do not rely on the internet and brochures; go out look and experience. These simple points will make a world of difference.

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

I am enrolled at Fairleigh Dickinsons Teacneck campus and attend the College Partnership program that is held at campuses across the state. I have been attending the Cumberland County Campus. I must say that the worst thing is communication bertween advisors and students. Communication is one of the components for success and sadly this school lacks much of it.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking for a college experiance. When enrolling and attending the Community Partnership program, it is evident that everything is done fast, like a drive through. Come in and out. The cost is also extremly high.

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

I advice student and parents to do as much research as possible before making a selection. There are many great colleges out there that students can attend. Also before selecting the schools students should visit the campus and get the sense of home. If the student feel like home when they visit the camput than that's definitely the right college. College is amazing and getting the best of it is the number one thing students should look forward too. There is nothing better than recieving an education where the student feels comfortable and enjoys every second of it. Finding the right school is the most accomplishing task after graduating high school.

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

I think that the first thing about the school is that the air condistioning and heater are always out of order. During the winter student are freezing in the classrooms and during the summer it is super hot to sit in the classrooms.

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

I think the environment, the professors and the students are definitely unique at my school compared to others. My best friend goes to a different school and when she tells me things I think about how it is in my school. It's so much more different. The people are so friendly and always smiling at you. The environment is very comfortable, you almost feel like you are at home. The students are so diverse and friendly. It's just great.

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

When looking for a college that suits you the best, you really have to think about a lot of things. You have to worry most of all if you are going to be comfortable and feel as if you are at home where you will be going to school. You do not want to go to a school where you are going to wish that you were home every single day because then you are going to have a bad experience there. Being comfortable is very important. Also, you want to find out about surrounding areas, what kind of people will be attending the school, what kind of professor and if the school has the major that you are interested in. There are so many things that you have to think about when looking for the correct college but I would say to just make sure that you are comfortable there.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that doesn't really care to much about their education and their future should not attend this school. At FDU, I feel like everyone is so career oriented and caring of their future. We all work hard to get the best grades. You shouldn't come to this school if you are a slacker and don't care.

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

Look for a school with strong guidance, a solid core education, and a balance of academic and non-academic programs. I?ve had good and bad advisors. Bad advisors make college difficult. It is impossible to work through a course catalog, and determine which will satisfy degree requirements, and relate to the students personal goals. Good advisors provide background information, know many of the professors, and know who to ask for more information. Colleges have a responsibility to provide a comprehensive education. The classes required for any degree are the manifestation of this. A lot of people change careers. Especially for them, and for many people still in their original careers, the general education proves more valuable than the degree specific education. Non-academic programs are part of the education a college provides. For many students, college is the first time they are living away from home. Later, they will need to balance their lives and work, so learning to balance their lives with school is great training. Everything is about finding balance: balancing specific education with general education; balancing academics with the non-academic. If I have one piece of advice, it is to find a school with balance.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is an excellent choice for someone with a specific educational goal. My advisor was able to help me put together a plan of classes that fulfills my goals, as well as the university requirements, so I will be a much better teacher than I would have been otherwise. I think that any student who knows what they want to do, whether it is nursing, marine biology, or political science will have the courses they need. And, with independent studies and interdisciplinary degrees as an option, FDU will be able to design the exact program the student needs.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing to me is that, with such a diverse collection of programs, you have to spend a lot of time working with the administration to get all of the registration paperwork processed. No one person knows all of the classes, and alternatives available. Sometimes, I have to contact three or four people in different departments, just to find out if a class will satisfy a particular requirement.
