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

I would tell myself how to be a better roommate in the dorms. Honesty and being forthright are essential to maintaining a good relationship with your roommate. I would also warn myself about the rampaging gossip that spreads around campus. It spreads like wildfire and it is incredibly hard to stop or trace. I would tell myself to step out more, you don't have much of a college experience if you never leave your dorm room. I would also tell myself not to lose my values because of the peer pressure, it's definitely something a lot of people underestimate about college.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who really wants a good Criminal Justice degree, or something in that field, should attend this college. This college is also good if you like or prefer smaller classrooms and campuses.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

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

Finding the right college is pretty difficult. I personally started with college search engines like the Princeton Review, which start you out with information based on schools that best support your academic interests. I highly suggest visiting schools, as well. It's like online dating; first you look at the school's profile, get to know the school better through research, and then you meet to see if there is any chemistry. School visits are key in the latter part. Once you have chosen your college and gone through orientation, it is advisable to join something, anything, that will allow you to make friends and really enjoy your time on campus. Many people do go down the sports path. However, many campuses have clubs and organizations. Some of these clubs are even major-based, and will really help you not only in the classroom, but in networking. Other clubs are interest based. I highly suggest joining at least one of each in order to achieve a well-rounded college experience. Many schools also have on campus activies, as well as trips, in which a student aspiring for the college experience can participate.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I cannot stand the fact that the dining hall ever closes. I take most of my classes back-to-back so that i have a few days off each week, but by the time I get out of class, the dining hall is closed.

Describe the students at your school.

i think it to be true in most schools the freshman can be very irritating b/c no one is watching them and taking them by the hands any more they are really on their own for the first time and the freedom can be over whelming for some after the first year most everyone else is focused on their schooling and getting good grades to get a good job

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

First i would say trully look at the high school experience. If they went to a big school and didn't do great i would say look at a smaller college, they may need more one on one experience to live up to their full potential. If they went to a large school and did well they may be fine going to a large or a smaller school and vise versa with smaller high schools. Than look at the area that the colleges are in. If they will be out all night in the city obviously you would want to go there to party and not the school. I also encourage campus visiting if possible. Gives you a sence of the college you get to see first hand what it looks like. Get involved with at leat one or two activities every year. Dont be afraid to ask questions and get extra help you are not being a nerd if you do and no one will make fun of you for doing it. College is the steping stone from being a child to adulthood you will learn a lot about yourself enjoy this time next comes the real world.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

parking, because the school is getting more and more students each year and not expanding a parking lot

Some are annoying and shouldn't be here, and some will be well off in life, and are on the right track.

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

I would give parents and students the following advice in finding the right college for them and making college the best experience possible: First of all, my advice would state that when looking for a college, look at the best place where your son or daughter, or whoever the prospective student is, can grow the most. Usually big schools such as Yale, Harvard, Cornell, UB, Buffalo State, and others, are relatively larger in size compared to smaller private colleges that may offer better opportunity for community involvement and growth as an individual. Going to college isn't just to get a good job in four years, it should be looking forward to growing and maturing as a person as well. This leads me to what can make the college experience the best one to have. The advice I will share with you, is get involved! Do as many activities as you can, and really learn how to manage your time! Play a sport, or join a club, or even take a alternative spring break trip. Do something others wouldn't to make yourself stand out, and put those things on your resume! Overall, look for the most growth and involvment!

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

First you need to deceide what you want out of your college experience. Your the only one whom knows what you are expecting, and you are the only one whom can make it happen. Your college exeperience is what you choose to make of it. Whether your active or not, is up to you. What you like to be involved in is also up to you. Make sure when looking for a college you are aware if staying on campus of your surroundings and if eveything you will need is close by. Grocery store, doctor, emergency room, gas station, bus route. Also, when looking for a college you need to know what your learning preference is, do you like large classrooms, with lots of students? Or small classes, where it is easy for personal attention from the professor if needed. To be good at what profession you have choosen you need to go to class, pay attention, do your work, and be the best that you can be. If you slack off, don't attend classes, turn assignments in late, then your grades will suffer, this isn't high school anymore, excuses don't fly. Good luck and God Bless!!!!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone whom likes small classes with more personal attention from the professors.

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

The most important advice I could give would be to research perspective colleges. Pay particular attention to enrollment status and procedure, graduate success rates, career placement, preparation for graduate school as well as programs or designated places for academic assistance. One of the most important criteria is the size of the campus and the individual learning style. It is important if a student requires more one to one learning to find a campus that is smaller in size. I found that open houses can provide a great insight into the how the campus functions and the type of individuals that are employed and enrolled. It also provides a insight to how large or small the campus is. Personal interviews and tours and highly encouraged as they provide greater insight into the desired program curriculum as well as the professors within the specific program. Communication is another key to success of the college. It is imperative for all departments to be in constant communication regarding your academic and financial status.

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

Find out not only what you want to become in college, but who you are as a person. Pick a college that you feel as though you can learn the most from both academically and mentally. Make sure that you don't take any moment at college for granted because it really is the best years of your life, and make sure that you study so you are making good use of your money.

What's unique about your campus?

Has a lot of services avaible for people that need extra help
