Pick a college that reflects who you are. Don't go to a college because you believe it is the best you can do or because everyone one thinks you should. You want to enjoy your experience, adegree is a degree no matter the college or university you attend.

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

Choosing where to go to school after high school can be a tough decision. I myself was scared to go to a larger school, so naturally Glenville State College was the overall best choice for me (close to home, friendly people, small classes). Make sure you get a good feel for the school, its faculty and staff, and its current students. Ask plenty of questions and don't be shy when asking those questions (ask both students and faculty/staff to get a point of view from both sides). Make sure you check out the resident halls and if you want, sit in on a class or two (most professors won't mind) to help get a feel of where you will be living and what your classes may be like. Once at the school you've chosen, make the most of your experience. Be outgoing, make friends, join groups/clubs, get involved! Take random road trips with your new friends, experience a party or two (I never said to engage in activity), and enjoy your newfound freedom. Just remember, college isn't all fun and games, be sure to keep up on your studies and attendance in class!

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

People in general are not very friendly when it comes to homosexuality. Yes there are open minded people; however, many tend to look down upon it. That has been my biggest struggle on this campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you prefer small classes, a tight-knitted community, and lifetime friends then Glenville State College is right for you.

Describe the students at your school.

Most are in the same major as myself. They are for the most part aware of their academic standing and care about school and their grades. They participate in other curricular activities.

They are the best school for my major.

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

Really look around. Do not settle and ask the student's what they think of the school and not take everything the faculty says to be truth.

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

When determining where to go for college a student should consider the quality of the insitution, location, and what kind of a person he/she is. Parents need to consider their child's hopes and dreams, the quality and location of the institution, and budget. It is important for the student to choose what is going to be the best fit for him/herself. However, it should be the parents responsibility to guide the student to reputable and quality institutions. Sometimes students get more concerned with the social aspect of college when it should be a good balance of growing up and earning an education. I think it is a good idea to visit a variety of schools and generate a list of pros and cons to help determine what will work best for the individual. It is not a decision to be made lightly so I would also suggest considering schools in 10th or 11th grade so you can begin the application process early. Get to know everything you can about the school, professors, community, and students. It really helped me determine where I wanted to be and I could not be happier with my decision! Go Glenville State!

What's unique about your campus?

Friendly environment. Helpful teachers. Beautiful campus. Small class sizes. Variety of activities.

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

Needs to be more considerate of commuters...parking and timely announcements of delays/cancellations. Needs a Walmart or 24 hour store during school.

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

I would tell parents to make sure their child visits the school (if possible) to make sure that they are attending the right college. Also, that their child doesn't have to go out and party to have fun. If they can find people with similar interests they wont feel the need to binge drink and party all the time.

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

I wish i had known that there wasn't as much cultural diverity has I was used to in high school.
