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

The help that I get from the staff is great. The other places I looked into it seemed the student's there are just a number in their grade books, but when you?re at HPU your more than just a number.

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

Do your research!!! Look and travel to campuses and take into consideration the surroundings and how your children feel about the surroundings the college in particular. What do you feel about the college and is it for your child? Make sure you plan in advance and just do your research. Ask people what they think, ask them how the professor?s was and overall experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

In my words whoever wants to learn from a great college. The atmosphere is great; the teachers are really good and understanding. It's a great place to learn.

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

It is very focused on the career path I have chosen. It is also much smaller and more hands on that other schools that offered a good program for my major, marine biology. Also, it is in one of the best places in the United States to study animals of the ocean.

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

The toughest part of the journey is digging deep to the feelings inside you. First lead with your head to direct you in the right direction, but once you have found that path, let your heart lead the way. Finding a college that meets your needs is the first step, but that's not enough. When you step foot on campus for the first time and it just feels right, that's when you'll know you have found the school for you. Making the most of the college experience is all about having fun. Do what you have to do, work, class, homework, exams, but make sure to have fun. Talk with teachers to make the class more interesting, get help on homework, and study ahead for exams. This will lessen stress and allow for more "down time" to just relax and enjoy life. Meet with friends between classes to just chat or have lunch, and always focus on the "NOW" don't concentrate on what is to come or what has happened. We live in the present and it is the biggest gift of all. Why else would it be called a present?

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is not motivated and plans to sweep through college like a breeze. You must have strong motivation, determinaion, and integrity. Also, you need to be willing to go out of your way to do well by meeting with teachers during office hours and calling and e-mailing them with questions.

I would strongly encourage the students and their parents to visit the college(s) they want to attend and get a campus tour.

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

On the Windward campus, for residents living in the dorms, it can be a hassle to get to any business.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is frustrating that the Windward campus does not have any other options to buy food and that there is only a certain time you can buy food from the cafeteria.

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

Help your child find out what they want to major in before they begin college. Being in school for something they don?t want to learn lessens the enjoyability of school, and wastes time and money. Once I switched to the major that I am truly passionate about, I liked school more. Since I am in nursing school, which is demanding, it is hard, but I have fun in school. When you have a major, you know the classes you need, to take, and you know the goal you are trying to attain. However, when you are just taking classes because you don?t know what else to take, it becomes boring and pointless. In order for your child to know what they want to pursue before college, encourage them to volunteer in different settings. If perhaps I had ever volunteered at a hospital in high school, maybe I would have known right away that this is what I wanted to learn and be in school for. Encourage our child to learn about the different possibilities out there, not just the few that have been exposed to them.

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

I wish I knew what my major would have been, so that i wouldn't have wasted a year

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

One urban campus, one liberal arts campus, one research facility; diversity from across the United States and all over the world. A one-of-a-kind university.

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

Scour every single college in existence; evaluate all the pros and cons of each school that piques your interest. Visit the school as early as possible as it will certainly factor into your decision for going to college. No college is truly out of your reach unless you think it is, so the stars and moon are your limits. If you're worried about the cost, then start with AP Tests and take community college courses and transfer into your dream school later on. In the end, this is your education, no one else's and you have to the most out of it. Remember to never stop learning, ask questions, and take nothing for granted.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This person should be open to diverse cultures (even as far as having a foreign roommate) and be extremely mature; this is not your typical university! You should come with an idea of what major you want to be because in the end, you will be responsible for your education. If you're looking for a drinking/party school, this is not it!
