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

To find the right school first determine the passion of the student. Next, what school' s program of study best fits his/her passion. Finally, does the student's personality match with the setting of the university. Some students are not comfortable with certain college settings. I believe in making good choices in these areas, the college experience will be a great one and an easy transition.

Grand canyon is exciting and different. I recieved some information on this school through my employer and I must say I was very impressed with what Grand Canyon University had to offer educationally.

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

Finding a college is hard. There are so many factors to consider such as, location, what is availible to the student, class ratio, friendliness by staff and students, and most of all; what does the college have to offer to ensure you are getting the education that you desire. Diffenently take your time and listen when you are touring a campus. Always have a list of questions to ask to make sure its the college for you. You can always schedule an appointment with an advisor if needed. Lastly, remember to breath. Searching for the right campus can be overwhelming at times.

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

The advice that I would give to parents/ student to finding the right college is to research the school,.Before you go off to college or attend a local college, make sure you can afford tuition, books, and other expenses. Make sure the college offers the degree and the major you are willing to take. Class sizes should meet your approval as well as living arrangements. No one should be stressed out about expenses or anything that does not pertain to academics. Also, make sure that you are willing to work hard at college. It is not a time to be free, it is a time to grow and develop as an young adult, and to be a very wise and independent adult. Your future can be bright and wonderful if you choose the right career path. So think hard, choose wisely, and your dreams will come true.

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

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

Each college and university is different. While they may offer similar programs, the learning styles are quite different. I would suggest that you choose a school that the potential student can be active (in other words, participate in sports and / or fraternities / sororities), as well as receive a good education. Many parents have a difficult time with this, but it's best to allow your student to attend school in a different city and state. I suggest this because the child then really learns to become independant faster, and cannot rely on family to bail them out of jams.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person should not attend this school if they need one on one from the instructors. The instructors are not easily accessible to their students. They are very friendly and are willing to help, but do not have the time. The learning is very structured, and can tell that the sylabus comes from another source.
