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

I would tell the students to choose the school that gives them the most of what they are looking for weather that's sports or acedemics. I would tell parents to pray about it and make sure their child is told the correct things and make sure they understand every college is going to try and sell their school. You can't always trust them. Also I would encourage the student to spend the night with a current freshman and see what it is truly like to be a college student.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

someone who is just looking to get their degree

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

That college is the basework of the development process that young people go through. A good college sets the student up for success in the world after school. It is also important that the school fits the true personality of the student as he or she will feel more comfortable to plug into the social and academic campus life. A great school will have a great staff and faculty to back it up. These are the people that will help guide your student through college and into the world. So picking the staff and faculty is just as important as picking the school. Every student who feels invested in will in return invest more in their college experience.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Nothing was really frustrating about it.

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

Make sure parents and students do their own independent research on the schools you apply to before you decide upon one. Try to find people who have attended or are attending the school to talk to to get their impression. I would strongly suggest visiting the school and meeting some of the professors you may have, maybe even sit in on a class, to get an idea of what to expect. Remember to keep an open mind while in school, and that if you are deeply unsatisfied that you can always go somewhere else! Make the most of your experience and take advantage of every opportunity the school offers, and have fun!

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

I wish I had known more about its athletic program, with which i was deeply unsatisfied. I laso wish I had taken more time to understand the seriousness of its policies against alcohol use. I did not agree with at al the policy on homosexuality, which was a document signed upon entering the school by the student that if the student had homosexual feelings taht they would not be expressed while at the institution. I felt this deeply violated the personal freedoms of peoplpe and caused alot of dissatisfaction with the university.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Peole who are serious about education, like a small-campus/class atmosphere, and who have religious tolerance. The school is a Quaker University and the majority of people who attend consider themselves to be Christian and for that part conservative Christians. The university has policies against gambling, alcohol, tobacco, and all drug use while in attendace at this school.

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

I would highly stress the importance of on campus visits. Visiting a school, attending classes, and interacting with professors and students can you give a wealth of information essential. Also research the majors that the schools offer and make sure that they have the major (s) that you're interested in. Check out their study abroad programs and extra curricular activities like clubs and sports programs. Make sure that the campus setting (rural, suburban, etc.) is one that you could see yourself living in. I think that the way the admissions staff interacts and communicates with you is very important. Are they friendly, helpful, and genuine? Or do they treat you like a number and are difficult to communicate with? Refering to making the most of your college experience, I would encourage you to get involved with school activities. Join clubs and attend social events. Get to know your classmates and don't stress to much about grades. Of course, grades are important, but I believe that the most valuable aspect of your college education happens outside the classroom. College is about getting to know yourself, so get out of your comfort zone and figure out who you are.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who are really interested in the Greek system and who are really opposed to the Christian lifestyle/Christianity should probably not attend.

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

My school is a small, Christian, liberal arts University that is a good school, but I think could be better.

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

Above and beyond everything my advice is to visit as many campuses as possible. I had no idea where I wanted to go for a long time. It was only through my visits I came to a decision. On paper a lot of schools can look the same, but it doesn't mean it will fit you. Every school will tell you they are great, but nto every school will be great for you. Figure out where your most comfortable fit will be.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Having adjucnt professors teah upper division classes. Not receiving as much financial aid as I feel my family's income deserves because the school does not have an "endowment." Not really feeling pushed in my education until my senior year.

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

Get out there and view the schools you are interested in. There is no way to really tell how you feel about them until you are there. Pictures may be worth a thousand words but in this case, seeing is believing. While you are there ask students how they feel about the school, they already attend it so they will have the inside information. Also talk with professors in the field you are interested in. You're going to potentially be seeing a lot of them in the next 4 years so its nice to see what you are getting into(plus, it may really come in handy when you just didn't have time to turn in that paper!) One last piece of advice, trust your gut. If it just "feels right" than it probably is!

What's unique about your campus?

The friendships that are created definately take the cake!

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

The amount of friendships that you build during your four years and how deep and lasting those friendships become
