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

I would say talk about it...make sure it is what you want and are really looking for. Don't just go somewhere where all of your friends go. You most likely will not like it. If you go somewhere different, it will give you something to talk about when you come home and see your friends, plus you will have many more good friends.

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

When choosing a college, do NOT worry about which college is the most popular or the least liked. That's the public opinion... not yours. Each college is for someone. Everyone has different needs that are met by different academic institutions. It's like finding your fingerprint - it's an unique search that is just for you. And when it comes to financial aid, be assertive! There are tons of ways to get help financially for school. And when you're at college, don't lock yourself in your dorm room all the time to study. You're there to experience life with tons of other peers who are in the same boat as you! Share life stories and create a new beginning as well! Remember - live. Laugh. Love. :) College is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that is sure to never be forgotten.

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

I wish I knew that it would be a bit harder acquiring an interpreter for my needs since I'm a deaf student attending a 4-year liberal arts university. The school rarely gets deaf students so there's not a lot accessible, but it has changed since I've been here.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who embraces life and friends - isn't afraid to be challenged both academically and spiritually. Someone who wants to grow from what they learn - not just in classrooms, but outside of the school as well.

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

Look for the college that would best fit your needs. Take the cost into consideration, but do not let the cost stop you form going to a college that is the best fit for you. Go to the school for a campus visit and talk to the students, teachers and other people that work at the school. When you start to the college of your choise try to find groups that you like to hang out with. Not everyone will do this and thats ok. If you do get involed try to balance school work and social life. Going off to college gives you more ways to get in trouble to. Try not to get involved with the worng crowed. College is about learing how to make a living, but don't forget to have fun along the way.

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

PLEASE go visit at least 3 college campuses before you make your final decision. Consider that going to college in a different part of the country than where you grew up can offer unique cultural challenges. Look up the demographics for the cities where the colleges you are interested in are located and compare them with the demographics for your hometown. Consider how those demgraphics might affect you. Talk to as many upper-classmen on campus as you can (upper-classmen are juniors and seniors). Talk to faculty, but keep in mind they are trying to sell you the school where they teach. Be skeptical at first. Consider the cost of transportation and the availability of emploment should you need a job. Look at the campus housing and imagine yourself being in that situation for 4 years. Consider whether the student body seems to be diverse. Diversity is ALWAYS a plus. Think about how far you want to be from home, but don't let it keep you from going far. Don't study what people say you "should" study, study what interests you. Consider college a clean slate to begin a new life. Discover and Be yourself.

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

The lack of diversity and the closed-mindedness and conservativeness of the students and often the faculty. This is less true about the art department, so if one were looking for a group of forward-thinking people on campus, I would suggest spending time with the art faculty and students.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A southern, white, republican, conservative, evangelical would fit in perfectly at this school.

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

When advising a parent and/or students about finding the right college, I would tell them to make sure that the academic opportunities of the schools being considered match their career plans. I would say that while academics are very important in choosing a college, it is also crucial that one attends a school they like, where they are able to make friends, and can be involved socially. I would advise them to learn more about housing, financial aid, and so forth to make certain there are no surprises concerning their money later down the road. I would tell them to search for scholarships and apply for as many as possible. I would also remind them that no school is too expensive if it is truly where the student wants to go. Lastly, I would remind the parents that while their student needs to study and do well, he or she should also be allowed to have fun because college memories and friends are what they're really going to cherish once they graduate.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about FHU is how nice everyone is to one another. Even among people who may not be friends or like each other, they still respect each other and treat one another with that respect. People truly care about other people here. And the friendships you make will last a lifetime.

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

It is a strong church of Christ school and I believe is the best church of Christ school. All of the staff, students, and faculty are friendly and there are may things to get involved with on-campus. I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else in the world.

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

Think a lot about what is really important in your life before you make the decision to attend college. Don't attend colleges just because your friends are there but make sure that the academic programs, social life, and other things are exactly what you are searching for. I have transferred away from the school because of baseball and then transferred back after I stopped playing baseball. I have learned that there is a wide gap in the programs, facilities, etc... between schools so make sure that the school that you choose has what you are looking for and what is important to you.

Find a college that you feel comfertable and you want to be happy. Do not go were your friends want to go, go where you want to go. You will be even happier and more willing to learn and do you best while your there also you will be more willing to support your school.

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

During the process of chosing a college, I looked mainly looked at the financial aspect. However, looking back, I now realize that this is of little importance. Luckily for me, I was still chose the right school. It has taken me almost three years to realize that even if it means I'm in debt the rest of my life, I would do it all over again if I could. College is a time in life when independence first feels real. It is important to find a school that fits both your social and academic needs. It is important to go in with an open mind and a willingness to try new things and meeet new people. I was able to use college as a spring board for my social life and I have been able to grow and develop into a person I never saw myself becoming.

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

Sometimes the social atmosphere tends to cause a tension between students.
