Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates are hard working, focused, and determined as most of them also work full-time and have families to take care of like myself.

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

I would encourage students to attend college immediately after high school. Waiting or taking time off is a waste of time. It's best to get started as soon as possible. I would encourage parents to talk about college with their children at young ages so the children understand the importance of college and feel that college is just part of a normal education. I would also encourage both to start a college fund at a young age. College is expensive and grants are not available to the middle-class. You have to be on welfare or be a teen-mom or single mom to get any kind of grants so it's important to start saving years in advance.

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

College is an experience for any person but you have to look at all aspects of it. Living arrangements, the transition of leaving home. GCU is a wonderful college that has given me the chance to further my life and have a better experience in my life.

Do your homework. Research the school to find out if it fits your needs. Don't forget to FASFA and do it early. On homework, do not put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Deadlines come fast. It never fails, complications come when their least expected. Early work ensures the likelyhood a question to the instructor will be answered timely. Finally, don't stress out.

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.

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.
