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

Just because you are a straight A student in Highschool does not mean you will be in college. High school does not prepare you for college. You have to be able to work extremely hard and have a high level of dedication and determination. If you don't have a goal your reaching for, it will all seem not worth it. It can be very overwhelming but it is all worth while.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The Dorms/On campus living conditions.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Hardin-Simmons is so great. The awesome Christian values that are learned along with the regulated schooling is so wonderful. I love encorporation my Christianity into everyday learning experiences. The campus is beautiful. the poeple are so nice, friendly and helpful. The only bad thing I can comment on is the cost. Since it is a private university it is rather expensive...however, I feel the experience is worth it.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very fun and like to have a good time. But at the same time they are serious about their school work. Everyone is so helpful and is so nice and welsoming. I love the environment and the people.

I advise those parents and students to really pray and seek where the Lord would have you to go. Make campus visits and talk to current students. They know all about being there!!! I also would say to look into financial aid. The Lord will provide if it is His will but it never hurts to look into it. I encourage the student to get plugged in and maybe even find new freshmen on facebook or myspace or something to already have started forming friendships. Apply for houseing early to make sure you get the room you want. Most of all...HAVE FUN!!!

Before picking a college, consider what career field you may want to enter. Think about whether or not you would prefer to be in a large student population setting or one where you would know most people and in return they would know you (students and staff alike). Take time to tour several campuses that you are interested in attending. Find out what financial aid is offered at different colleges and how this can benefit you. These will make your decision process go a lot smoother. After you have found the right college for you, introduce yourself to staff members and other students, learn about different activities, programs, fraternities/sororities, volunteer opportunities, etc..., that your college offers. In college you will make memories and friendships that last a lifetime so do your best, have fun, and try something new. College is an amazing time in your life.

What's unique about your campus?

The friendliness and positive interaction between students and staff alike is one of the best things about Hardin Simmons. The campus atmosphere and availability of on campus activities is equally important as well. These qualities are what make my learning experience a much more enjoyable and helpful experience.

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

Dont look for a college that just offers a good time, or one that has amazing things for your field of study. Look for a good balance of both. College is a huge step in life that makes you who you are, so dont miss out on making friends while hiding behind school work, but dont waste your time with friends when you should be making a foundation for your future. Find a way to connect to both sides.

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

Just make sure your child really does want to be in college. And if they don't, then just let them go get a job and experience life instead of coming to school and making it miserable to everyone else. Truth is, there's no point coming to college if you don't want to be here.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Non-religious people, and people who cannot stand mandatory chapel services. Kids who cannot stand living in the country far away from the big city.

Be sure to visit the campus before enrolling in classes because how you feel when you visit can make a big difference. If the school provides new student orientation always get involved.

What's unique about your campus?

I like the size and atmosphere on campus. It allows you meet a lot more people.

Be proactive when selecting your college. Do not let time pass you by and fill your head with thoughts of "I wish I had applied there, or I wish I would have gone there". Do things early and take your time when making a decision. The early you get things done the less stress is involved in making a decision. Most college students have lots of options, so applying early and looking all at the whole school will make it less stressful for you and parents. Look for an involved student body that wil be able to help you when you need it the most. Make sure the University of your choice is not run strictly by Greek Clubs. You want there to be extracuricular activities, but without behing held done by a Greek Club. Find the college that is right for you not for your friends. Try not to follow friends or relationships. Your in college be your own person. If they are truly your friends, you will be friends with them throughout college and after. And just think of the great stories you can tell each other. Lasly, take chances and take oppurtunities. Your only college aged once.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There tends to be a lot of unmotivated unwilling people who do not care about life. Unwilling: By unwilling I mean that alof of people do not want to try new things, to be random, to be crazy. Just the other week we drove through McDonald's naked on our road trip. Funny, a little unkosher, but exciting. I can't think of any other people that would do that besides my roommate and I. Unmotivated: there are lots of oppurtunities here to make money or to advance oneself and people dont take chances.
