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

Don't ever decide not to go to a school simply because it costs more than you want to pay. If you really want to go to that school, no amount of debt will change you experiences and how much you get out of the school if it is teh one you truly want.

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

Find a college that has a great program in the field you wish to study. It is time and money consuming to attend a school that does not teach well t hesubject you want to learn, plus it's really boring to study something you hate just because you want to hang out with your friends. College is a time of freedom, but not just so you can get drunk every weekend. You are investing a lot of money and time into four years, learn as much as you can, and so don't choose the party schools. Make sure that professors at the school are willing to spend time getting to know you and mentoring you. I recommend smaller schools for that. Choose a school that will make you a better human.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing sbout Franciscan is that it incorporates development of the whole person into academic and social life. Not just one aspect if valued and facilitated by the staff, the faculty or the student environment, but spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and personal areas of life are supported.

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

sometimes we live in a world disconnected from the current events.

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

I would say that the most important thing is to not rush the decision. Look at all of the aspects of the college: academics, community life, extracurriculars, etc... After you have made the choice, get involved. Nothing is worse than being at a college with people everywhere waiting to get to know you and you are sitting in your room alone. Get out and meet people, enjoy it, and study hard.

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

A crucial part of choosing a college is visiting. Immerse yourself in the campus life and among the current students. Ask them exactly what they enjoy and dislike about their college; they will most likely tell the absolute truth. Make sure you feel comfortable amongst the student body. Above all, choose what factor of college is most important to you: for some, it is academic strength; for others, student life; and for others, a different aspect: maybe a religious factor. Once you determine what is most important to you, choosing a college will be that much easier, as you will evaluate them according to a ranking system. If you choose a college and dislike it, make sure you stay focused academically while keeping a social life. Balance between the two is key. There is nothing wrong with transferring to a different school, many students decide to do that, but it's important to take a good GPA with you! Most importantly, enjoy college. You're not paying for a miserable four years!

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

If you do not have a conservative attitude, you will probably feel very alone. Along with being 'passionately Catholic', this student body is overwhelmingly pro-life, and it permeates many of their actions- although not in a bad way, just in an exclusive way. Also, it's a far cry from a party school, so if that's your idea of fun, you'll be hard-pressed to have a great time on this campus.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The lack of diversity when it comes to idealogy. Those who do not agree with the common views of pro-life, conservative, Catholicism in the one true faith, often feel ostracized. Although you will not be condemned for disagreeing, you'll be weakly debated and feel very alone. While nearly every person on the campus is friendly, they're not always big on reaching out to those who are different- in ideas, looks, or just those of us who enjoy playing devil's advocate!

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

I would tell prospective students to STAY in college, and persevere. I would also tell them to study A LOT. Stay away from alot of parties. I dont say its bad, but I would say its something that can easily pull you away from staying focused. READ the TEXTBOOKS!!!

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

That it was more academically challenging than I thought.

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

The fact that this school has really helped me grow in maturity, in faith, and with my friends. And that they have a lot of girls here, its like four girls to one guy!!!

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

College is about becoming an adult, separate from the comfort of your parents and inherint social setting in which you grew up. Because of this, the choice of the college you attend will in some respects determine much of who you become, but also it will not make or break your life. Choosing a college is about going where you are comfortable and where you feel you will benefit the most academically and socially.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A Catholic, caring person who wants to learn in a similar environment to one that they are comfortable in.

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

Make sure that you/future student visits every school you apply to. Sometimes the academics offered make the school appealing, but the living environment makes the academic load unable to handle.

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

Franciscan University, the most friendly and beautiful campus, is dedicated to the academic and spiritual growth of students, calling them on to be the best possible, well-rounded, students.

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

When looking for the right college, it is obvious to pick one that has the right classes for the major that you wish to pursue, has a reasonable price range, or fulfills your personal criteria on size. However, the vibes you get when researching or visiting a college are also very important, and sometimes overlooked. As a perspective student, you must be able to feel safe on campus. Are there escorts or emergency call posts around campus? You must also be able to feel safe when living in your dorm, so the feelings you get when scoping out a resident?s hall is also very important. Remember to pay attention to the current students when visiting a college. They should seem friendly, upbeat and helpful, all important qualities when considering living in such a close proximity with others. Your impression of other elements, such as grounds and faculty are also very important. Grounds should be clean and kept, and the faculty should be helpful, cared for, and professional. (Do the cafeteria workers seem happy to be working?). Remember that your intuition and overall feeling of the college is vital when choosing the right one.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the student body and the fellowship and positive influence that the students here provide. These strangers, that you are made to dorm with, eat with and study with, quickly become your family away from home, and loved so much that you almost want to be a student forever. The student body constantly urges each other to grow in goodness, through ministries, mission trips, studies abroad, and everyday, chivalry and sportsmanship.
