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!

Visit the campus and see what feeling you get from the people on campus. Some campuses are more friendly than others. Some give off differnt vibes. There are school for each person and in order to find a school that you are going to enjoy, go visit them. Be sure to sit in on some classes in the major that you are interested in. Eat in the cafeteria, you will want to know what you are getting yourself into with the food, are you going to be gaining the freshman 15 or loosing 15 pounds due to the quality of the food? Its also a good idea to stay the night with a student who is attending that university. It will give you a feel for the atmosphere of the living situations and more of what the current students are like. Good luck in your search!

its unique christian approach to liberal arts, and its great audio/video or cinema media communications department. also for all of that its not too far from home.

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

When you know what you want to do with your life, seek a college that will facilitate that in the best way. Seek an atmosphere that will promote learning and expands your experience. If you don't know what you want to do, find the school that has the options and the resources to find what you're interested in. In the end all we take from college is our experience and hopefully that sweet college degree.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

maybe the lack of a variety of on-campus food choices, theres really only the cafeteria or fast food off-campus. also the dining hall is feeling smaller as there are more students coming. the small space makes much lines longer in the rush lunch and dinner hours. also there never seems to be enough hours in the day to finish the assignments that are assigned, but thats just college i guess

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

Make sure that you have at least a fairly good feeling about the school. Visit the campus if you can, talk to some of the students and get their take on what they think about it.

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

The school seems to have an endless reason for you to pay them money. Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors have to live on Campus, unless they're married.

The entire campus is only half a mile wide. I can get to all my classes is about 7 minutes coming from my residence hall.

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

Don't be afraid to visit colleges. It can be a little expensive if you go out-of-state, but college is a crucial season in a person's life. It's important to remember that changing your mind is alright; you are allowed to switch from place to place, but you can find purpose anywhere you go. Choose a school that emphasizes the kind of lifestyle you are looking for. An academically rigorous university is not the best place to hang out and not attend classes. There are going to be challenges anywhere you do decide to go; the purpose of college is to stretch you, and picking a school that has different values or emphases than you will do that. Embrace the challenges, accept that you have many choices, but realize that you can find your niche anywhere. Choosing a college, like everything else in life, is about your attitude. You will get out of it whatever you put in.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

People say they want change, but they are resistant to other people's differences.

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

I think that one needs to realize right off the bat that your college experience isn't going to be perfect. There are going to be a lot of times where you wondered if you made the right choice or not; sometimes things get rough and you wonder what it would be like at another campus. However I think that if you research the schools that you want to go to and go and visit them you have a high probability of finding the "right" college. The best thing a person can do is to visit the school. When you visit the schools eat in the cafeteria, spend a night in the dorm, and ask the student on campus what they think of their school to get a better understanding of what you want and what you do not want. Once you know what you like in a college you can better evaluate your top choices and then slowly narrow them down based on your criteria. Once you decide on which college you go to, just remember no matter what happens, you are going to have the time of your life!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who want to party, do whatever they want, and just have a good time should not come to this school.

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

Look for a college that meets your needs. So often do we look for the best academic programs, but overlook the fact that you (or your child) will be making a home there for the next four years. Find a location that you find beautiful, and make sure the faculty are going to treat you with respect. Find a school that will encourage your academic studies, and not dismiss them.

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

I wish I had known that the administration was not going to be every supportive of the artistic endevours that I was to be involved in. I wish I had known that they would not be very helpful financially to a theatre major. I also wish I had known that the student life department was going to regulate my spiritual life.
