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

Visit the college you wish to attend. Ask to be taken on a tour and if you know anyone that is attending that school already, ask to stay overnight with them. Visit the school on a Friday or Saturday night and an evening through the week. You should pick a school that fits your personality and will help you accomplish your personal goals.

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

It is very small so everyone knows if you do something wrong. This small school loves to gossip, but if you are responsible and make the right friends, it will all be ok.

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

The answer to this is simple, go to every college that you are interested in and take a tour. I visited every single college I was interested in and out of all of them the one I chose was the one I felt most comfortable in. You need to feel comfortable in your school and I would have to say that I could not have made a better decision and I would not change schools for the world.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is not willing to do their work and put forth the effort.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I am proud to say that Franklin College is known for many things. We house fantastic sports teams, having won conference in nearly every sport through the past few years. We also have a growing interest in the arts, as the our theatre, Theatre Margot, was built recently, and still presents a nice, new feel. However, the aspect we are best known for is our journalism program. The Pulliam School of Journalism is listed as one of the top five small school programs in the country. This is a fact Franklin College is proud of!

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

Don't sweat! The best advice is simply not to worry about where to go. Every school in the world has so much to offer, something that should give peace to parents. I was accepted to three schools. Two large universities (Indiana University and Ball State University) and Franklin College. Choosing the small school has been extremely beneficial to me because I placed a high value on lower numbers in classrooms, as well as, high chances to participate in activities I enjoy. Sitting down with their child and putting together a list of values, priorities and interests, is something every parent should do. Figure out what their prospective college student enjoys is possibly the most important way of determining which school is right. Another important factor is distance from hometown. For me, it was important to be just far enough away that I could enjoy my life away from my hometown, but still close enough that I could drive home for valuable visits. Is this important to your child? Some students look to be further or closer. Talk about this topic. And lastly, never worry about money. Financial aid is available at every school. Get ready to enjoy college life!

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

The very worst thing about the school is the food program. Students constantly complain about the lack of quality of the foods, saying that even the "Healthy" section appears to be rather unsafe for the body. The times that food is rotated also lacks accomodation for students with heavy workloads or activity obligations.

Go where your heart tells you. You will always be paying loans off, so go where your heart tells you not where the cheapest tuition is. It's about the quality of the programs, the campus, and the people.

How nice the campus is and the quality of the programs here.

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

Make sure you visit the school before deciding where to go for four years, also make sure you know what you want your major to be, too many people waste money at college by attending extra years because they don' t know what major they want. If possible participate in any job shadowing or internships in your interest of study to make sure it is the right fit. Stick with the same high school atmosphere, if you're from a small school, a smaller college is a better fit, otherwise it is too overwhelming.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that doesn't like to attend class and one that wants to party more than study. This school is tough because it is private and attendance is mandatory in every class.

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

Always look at the degree programs offered first then go by the amount your family and afford to contribute. Once that process is complete, visit those colleges and sit through a class to get a feel of the learning experience. Spending a night with a current student will open up the student's eyes to the experience they might have at that college as well.

What's unique about your campus?

I loved the teacher and student relationship. Very helpful on projects that need to be done especially when working on projects with computers and graphic design.

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

I just talk about the small class size and group projects.

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

It is important for parents to be supportive and active in their child's college career. Students and parents should take the time to get to know their campus and community. Students will get the most out of their experience by attending campus events. These events provide a great sense of community. They are an easy outlet to meet other students and fulfill individual interests. Faculty and staff are there to help and provide so get to know them. What you put in is what you get out. If you make the effort you will succeed both academically and socially.

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

What you put in is what you get out. Get to know your professors. Get involved, stay involved, and have fun.
