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

I would tell myself as a high school senior to not go back into my old habits that I was set into during high school. This time sets your future career and no one will be able to help you turn around from your mistakes. It also costs you a lot from your pocket and time when you put the effort you need in coursework. It feels much better to get an A grade, rather than just passing through with a C. I would also tell myself to explore into different careers and participate in some volunteer work. Now I don't have the time that I would like to "try out different careers". Every moment now is spent working and trying to pay bills instead of trying to figure out what career would be best for me. Its much easier when you don't have so many responsibilities.

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

The worst thing about my school is how big and spread out the campus is. The lack of parking will be an issue as well.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of explaination I receive. There are so many students there, so things cannot get done on time.

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

Considering all the transitions and complications I have experienced throughout my senior year of high school, I would say that I now have a lot of handy tips for the "old me". Tip number one: no procrastination. Procrastination is a horrible habbit for anyone; it's easy to get off track, but it is critical to stay focused. If you keep putting things off until the last minute, you will stress over assignments and you will be rushed to finish them. In the end, lack of time does not allow you to think to your full ability. Tip number two: sign up for more scholarships earlier. Scholarships are awarded all the time, even at the beginning of senior year. Get off that tush and get ahead of the game! Everything counts and receiving just one scholarship could help pay for books, tuition, or other educational expences. To arm any future college student with this information would be enlightening for them.

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

Honestly, I haven't found anything wrong with the school. Being a freshman this year, I am still getting used to everything and everyone around me. Down the road, I will probably find little things here and there, but for right now I haven't found anything wrong about it that I need to go run and tell anybody about.

What's unique about your campus?

The best part about attending Georgia Southern University would be the close-knit and friendly environment everywhere you go on campus. The school focuses on making sure that every student is comfortable about the new environment and new students around them. If the students are not as comfortable as they would like to be , Georgia Southernn has many different ways to make sure each student is as comfortable as possible.

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

Go to New Student Orientation – This is the fastest way to get information on college resources. Time Management – Understand that taking 15 credit hours is equivalent to a full-time job. Plan on spending 2-3 hours of time on coursework outside of the classroom for each hour spent inside the classroom. Take Initiative – Ask questions, seek help, attend every class, get to know your professors and follow your degree plan. Self Reflectio

What's unique about your campus?

College is so much better than high school because you have so much more freedom! You have freedom to choose what time you want to have class, what you want to take, with who you want to take it...etc so it is much more interesting and easier to study because a lot of it will be for your major! Also, there are tons of parties!

What kind of person should attend this school?

You’re going to want to be polite, and have a lot to put on that application: do some stuff with clubs, student government, intramurals/other sports activities, possibly go greek, and of course have good grades!

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

If I went back in time to give any advice to my high school self, it would be to "Keep a positive mind set. The mind is the most powerful tool in the world because everything you see before you was in someone's mind before it came into reality. In fact everything you do is first proceeded by a thought, and then it becomes an action. Scientists proven that your thoughts are real because they cause biological and physiological effects. Your body responds to mental input as if it were physically real. Moreover you can use your mind to think good or bad things. In high school my thoughts would limit myself; my mind was literally trapped in a box. But now I'm telling you thinking optimistic can unlock your potential, and thinking pessimistic will block your potential. If you want to be class president go ahead! If you want to join the basketball team, you can do it! If you see a girl you like, then you go and get her! ' You can do anything if you set your mind to it!' Finally stay away from negative people because they will lower your mind to their level."

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type of person who shouldn't attend this school are the types that are not serious about their school work and life. One of the most dangerous things to do is waste your time because time is the currency of life, and time wasted is life abused.

My school is like a family. Everyone that goes here loves the school and wants to make a difference here. During sports events, all the locals come and I think that is very unique.

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

I would tell myself to get them ost involved as I can while I am first year. The friends that you make at the beginning of college are the friends you will have forever. I would also tell myself to take advantage of professor's office hours because they care and want to get to know their students as best as they can. This would also help in the future for references for scholarship or getting into a certain school. I would also tell myself to know how to separate you social life from your school life. I had a few friends this semester that messed up because they did not focus on their school and just worried about their social life

What's unique about your campus?

I love the size of my school and the amount of students in my classes. I like having the smaller class sizes because I learn better in these settings and have better relationships with my teachers. Everyone I talk to is kind and always asks if I need any help if i look confused. Everyone here is willing to help even if they do not know exactly what is going on.

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

I would say it is never to early to prepare for your future. Start thinking about what you are passionate about and network into that field. Volunteer as often as you can, where ever you can because that experience could qualify you for a job in the near future. Always ask questions because people love to see you willing to work and learn what you need to do to succeed. Also don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone beacuse you never know what you actually like until you try something diffrent. Enjoy your time beacuse it goes by so fast, so don't wish the future to get here so soon. Be sure to work hard first and play hard after. Take a break when you need to, because you will need the energy later, and learn how to manage your time wisely beacuse too much idle time is never a god thing. Last, but not least do everything with integrity and represent yourself well where ever you go, this means honesty, trustworthy, and dependability. Find a support system of likeminded indiviuals or friends to motivate each other through hard times. Dont worry Be happy! Smile

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

Study and get the best grades you possibly can. Take AP classes and a variety of subjects. Take Spanish!!! You will be in a working world soon and you need to be able to communicate with as many people as possible. Don't party so much...plan for your future. Spend time reading as much as you can now of the books you will need to know for college. Apply for scholarships because college is EXPENSIVE!

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

Friends, I've made so many new friends here and I've kept my old friends as well. Walking to and from classess allows me to run into people that I may not see otherwise.

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

Limited access to the big city. I lived in a suburb of Atlanta and now I'm 45 minutes away from any meaningful Mall shopping or a wider choice of physicians.

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

The advice I would give to my high school self would be to search for as many scholarships as you can and to get involved in as many ways as you can within your community. When you are all done with the paperwork for college and you get onto the college campus, college becomes real; not just a dream or vision anymore, but a reality. Scholarships are very helpful in that they can assist in paying for your schooling as well as living expenses. When you live on your own, bills begin to pile up and money becomes not a pleasure to have, but a dire necessity. I struggled through my first year of college because I did not try to get as many scholarships as I could; I just stuck with a few. I promised myself that I would try harder and apply for more scholarships this year. Another thing I would tell my past self is I that getting involved with the community brings up a lot of opportunities to meet people and give back. College is more fun when you know your peers and are involved in something that intrigues you.

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

Make school and your future your number one priority. Every decision made after high school will affect the outcome of your life to come, so make every choice count! You have all the tools necessary to succeed and are more than completely capable of achieving everything you want your life to be, it's only a matter of doing it. How others handle and approach their personal decisions should not affect you in the slightest. Truly take time to figure out what you want and what you need, make a plan, then act toward those goals. The honest truth is life isn't easy, but a little hard work now, will pay off immeasurably in the future! You can do it, I believe in you. So get started!

What's unique about your campus?

Variety is the best thing about Georgia Southern. From the full spectrum of majors to the multitude of extracurricular activities, there are always a myriad of things to get involved in. Fun is easily had at this school and there is never a niche you much uphold. Any activities both on and off campus allow you to seemlessly meld into the environment including in all social aspects.

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

Learning is learning no matter where you go. But the out of class environment is unlike any other. An important part of college is to know how to balance both work and play. The latter aspect is definitely catered to at Georgia Southern allowing for that perfect balance between the stress of papers and projects and the relaxation gained from video games to intramural sports.
