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

Gannon University has a very unique campus setting. I loved the way the campus is very clean and the grounds of the campus are well maintained. I chose Gannon over the other colleges I considered because it has a very strict Physician Assistant program which is ultimatley the program i want to get into. Another reason I chose Gannon was because the class sizes are not very big and you have the opportunity to talk to professors about questions you may have. I really like the fact that the professors are so helpful and you arn't just a number.

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

If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to enjoy the little things in life. Going to college is much more than just getting a degree. Going to college means leaving the only life you knew and creating an identity for yourself that will follow you for the rest of your life. I would tell myself to enjoy the little things in life my senior year because those little things will be the big things you miss the most when you go to college. I would tell myself to eat every bite of dinner my mother prepared every night because soon enough, your mother will be miles away and you will miss the smell of a fresh cooked meal. I would tell myself to spend as much time as i could cheering on my baby sister because when you go to college, you are too busy to go home for every soccer and t-ball game. The last thing i would tell myself is to just have fun and be less stressed out my senior year. The little things in life are ultimatley the big things you will miss most.

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

I would tell myself that you just have to go with it, you have to embrace the change and make the best of the situation. college is a new experience, it can be scary but try not to get too stressed out. Make sure you come prepared, crazy things happen, have all of your insurence information with you and know how it works. Don't be afrade to ask for help, when you tell people your a first time college student, most of the time they will be considerate and help you out. college is a time to recreate yourself so be smart be safe and stay focused but dont forget to enjoy yourself too!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most fustrating thing about my school is the wireless internet. it is great that they provide it, and very necessary, but hardly ever works. The wifi is slow and always locks me out, it alos often says that the wifi is "limited" and does not let me get on the internet. It is important for me to be able to get on the internet because all of my class assignments are uploaded there. I would recommend getting an ethernet cable to hook up directly as i will be doing the same thing.

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

Knowing what i know about college life, I would give myself information on how to study more conveniently and prepare myself for the future more. I am a transfer studen, at my old school I commuted every single day so i never truely got the college experience until now. I also changed my major three times. If I also had anything to tell my former self I would tell myself to really open my options and explore the fields to figure out exactly what I wanted to do, instead of having to change my major three times.

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

The worst thing i consider about my school would have to be that it is right in the city so there is alot of noise and people coming throughout the campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I think that any type of person should attend this school. It is very well organized and even though it is a catholic school they are open to all religions.

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

Personally I’m not one to encourage people to put their eggs in one basket but when it comes to making your college dicicions this is one method I should have consider as a college student myself . Especially if you’re not financially wealthy, wasting money testing out Majors is not wise. We all seek happiness in this cold world, but proceeding with a miserable carrier to obtain a large sum of money will destroy one’s happiness in life. Taking the wrong major will only distract you from fulfilling what you want to be. Trusting and investing in you is one of the best things anyone could ever do in their college life. I’d advise myself to stop being “safe” with my choices and attack my passion head on. To Trust my heart and choose the course of study that interests and inspires me. To not base my path merely because it satisfies the expectations of others, or because it seems prudent at the time, but because it’s what I enjoy doing. At the end of the day, happiness is all we seek, and having an unbearable job, will not bring you the happiness you look for.

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

I wish I would have known about some of the scholarships that I qualify for, as well as the exact final price as to what the total price for my tuition and campus staying would be.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

This school would be a good fit for someone who enjoys a direct relationship with their professor, medium to small spaced campus, and enjoys being part of the health of the environment. Someone that is in need to discover a friend that is just as weird as they are, and keep a strong relationship for the rest of their lives. Someone who will have connections as to finding a job after hey graduate college. someone who wants to discover who they are as a person.

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

I would tell myself to make sure I weigh all my options and think about finances when looking into colleges. In high school I was so concerned with going to a big school far away and I didn't even think about local, smaller schools. However, after a year and a half at a school out of state, I realized I was unhappy and spending too much money. I wish I would've taken the time to consider a local school like Gannon, because if I did I probably would've realized it was a much better fit for me. I also would tell myself to keep and open mind and try things I normally wouldn't, and to branch out. You can meet so many different people when do decide to do something that is out of your comfort zone, and I wish I would've realized that sooner.

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

The administrators of the school were very helpful in making sure I knew everything the school had to offer

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

I would tell myself to trust only a close few people and be good to the friends you make. Don't take your friends for granted because so many things can happen over the course of the year.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Gannon is a great school for health sciences, so if that is a person's interest, it is a great school to attend. The student must be dedicated and hard working for these majors, but it is worth it.

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

I talk about the health science programs, and all the interesting classes I get to take as a physician assistant student.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates at Gannon are engaged and friendly. The students are very interested in what they are learning and are always eager to ask questions and stay involved in the class. Also, all the classmates I have encountered are always willing to meet after class to work on an assignment or study for a test! It's very helpful when everyone is willing to work together and study. It makes the material easier to understand and you learn much more efficiently.

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

If I were to go back in time, the advice I would give my senior self is to learn how to manage your time and get involved. When I first got to college I easily got stressed out over school work and whether or not I would have enough time to finish it. It turns out that I had a lot more time than anticipated to get work done. When I was so busy stressing over school work I missed out on great opportunites to make new friends and get involved on campus. However, during that first semester I did learm how to manage my time so I could get my work done and still have time to do other extracurricular activities. College is not only about learning, but also making connections with people and putting yourself out there. This is a time to learn about yourself and others, and prepare yourself for your future career and life.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I find that the most frustrating thing about my school is there is not a lot of school spirit. The amount of students that go to the sporting events is very low and is disappointing to see. It would really be great if more students got involved and supported the school in the athletic department.

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

High school was a breeze, but it can never truly prepare yourself for college, you will be tested, mentally and emotionally but do not give up. Life has thrown you curve balls, but do not give up, just because you take more time to understand things does not mean you are any less intelligent than anyone else. Always strive and keep trying, do not ever lose sight of your dreams.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Early in my college career I was not fully prepared for the school's challenges. You really need to be mentally prepared to work, but still be able to balance your workload with every day life. If you are not prepared to work very hard and earn your grades then you should look elsewhere for schooling.

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

I would tell myself to simply be more open. College offers a lot of opportunities and the people in college are nothing like the kids in high school. I would have told myself to be involved in activities outside of the classroom and be open to making new friends instead of going to class and then going straight home. I would have prepared a lot better for college and I would have enjoyed my first semester so much more if I knew how cool people in college really were.
