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

In choosing the right school for you or your child, decide what characteristics are necessary in a good educational institution according to you or your child. Decide first these characteristics, and search for schools keeping those characteristics in mind. Read the mission statement of the school and see that it matches your values. Once you have started college, keep in mind what you want to get from the school. This includes educational aspects and social aspects. College is expensive and you want to get the most for your money, so decide what is most important to you and strive to get your money's worth!

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

The process for deciding on the right college can be stressful, difficult , and at times deceptive, but with a bit of guidance it is ultimately rewarding. Start by using that mass of glossy mail to get a general idea about each college. It is perfectly acceptable to be somewhat arbitrary in deciding what schools belong on your short list. There is such a quantity of options that you may need to just pick five to focus on, otherwise it will be too hard to manage. A campus visit should bring you the most insight, but never assume that the real experience will perfectly mirror that microcosmic view. During your first semester as a student you will decide if you chose correctly. If it is impossible to find reliable friends or you are not receiving the education you paid for, you should think about tranfering. In order to survive college remember that you need make time for friends with whom you can study, laugh, and commiserate. Do not forget why you came to college though, you should not let your friends take over your life and your grades suffer. It is all about finding your perfect balance.

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

Visit the college first and spend a night or two on campus if you're planning on living on-campus while attending. Before visiting colleges, write up a list of requirements for the college (including programs offered, sports, music, size, location, class sizes, etc.) and narrow down choices to ones that fit your specifications. Ask questions. Get to know your professors and ask questions when you can't figure something out. Be diverse and get involved in activities you wouldn't normally become involved in, such as intermural sports, theatre productions, choir, art, etc. Get to know those around you--they may end up being your friends for life. Get a job on-campus or off-campus for some extra cash for those late-night snacks, movies, eating out, etc.

Goshen College is a school that gives students an experience that you cannot describe in words, but something you have to experience yourself.

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

This college will give you an experience you will rarely see at a large state school. Because of the small size, there is more of a living community. Goshen College has an excellent study abroad program that will get you learning and living in another culture, which in itself will give you a learning experience that isn't possible to achieve in a classroom. Teachers and other students are very friendly. You'll learn a lot about yourself and how to become a more responsible and socially understood person.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates at Goshen College are engaged in the learning process, have diverse interests, and become well-rounded successful adults.

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

I would suggest strongly that parents and students alike consider personal and career goals before entering college life, in order to make the most of the experience. It is important to find a campus where not only are you comfortable to share your values with others who support you in those choices, but those who also challenge you to broaden their interests and global awareness throughout the college experience. It is important to recognize that though personal belief shapes social and academic lives on any campus, one must remain open to shifting goals and ideals according to influential peers and professors. While location and income of any school influences quality of education for each individual, it is not as important as those environments formed by individuals and groups themselves each year. I have found that the most important factor, apart from remaining engaged in extracurricular activities to supplement academic focus, is that of maintaining close and trusting working relationships with professors. Much knowledge and life experience of others can be used to form and refine life goals of any student.

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

There's a strong emphasis on openmindedness and acceptance among students on campus. Sometimes people get into serious debates, but it's always entered and completed with friendliness and an honest desire to understand where the other person is coming from.

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

I would say that it's about finding what you love and going with it. Find the atmosphere in which you would be most comfortable for a college campus and you may be in the right place. As to the experience, I recommend choosing your major based on the classes you would like to take. It is good on your resume just to have a degree; it is not necessarily pertinant what it is in as long as you can show you followed through the four years to complete what you set out to do. Another word of advice is not to spend all of your time in your room studying. Yes, it is important; turn in all your work on time and make sure to have plenty of time to complete it, but do not isolate yourself. From college, you are going to remember the times you spent growing closer to your friends and having times of bonding.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone interested in the arts and simply learning about the world. It's a liberal arts education, providing a well rounded introduction on multiple subjects. The students at this school tend to be interested in art in one form or another whether it's drawing and decorating or just decorating creatively.
