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

Choose the best school that you think you can have a very nice learning environment. It also helps to visit around different schools of your choice and choose the best one that you feel comfortable with.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Nothing really. Sometimes its hard to get in touch with professors over the summer and also get in classes that you want due to them filling up fast.

Don't be below trying a community college before going to a school, if you are unsure about your major

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

I wish I had know what major I really wanted, because I ended up spending a lot of money for a underdeveloped major, and I wish we had better technology.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you don't like to get involved in school or be apart of a school... If you want a foot ball team.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best know for being a private school with really great values. Everyone here wants to be here and they are not here because they have to be. It a really great school and all of the people have great values.

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

Research as much as you can about the college/university. Pick the best one for you. The one that you will fit into best.

What's unique about your campus?

The classes are very small, even the basic classes. You really get to know your teachers and class mates. This makes the learning environment more enjoyable and easy. I have had classes as big as 35 people to as small at 8.

The students here are very kind and loving, but are not afraid to let you know how they feel about any particular subject.

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

Please research your students particular field of study and plan early than their senior year of high school. Look for as many financial opportunities as possible. Look for colleges that have a wide range of strong programs to make the most of your education. Never sell yourself short of what college you think you can and can't attend. Make the most of the time you have in college studying and getting to know yourself. You may never get the same opportunity again. Don't try to please everyone. Find people you can trust. Care about others and they will care about you. Keep close contact with your professors and respect them because they write the recommendation letters and get you scholarships and jobs. Get as much sleep as possible. Never give up.

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

Recognition is not as high as other, but that is quickly changing. HBU has a huge endowment and an incredible future. The academics are extremely strong and the school is well known for this.

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

Most importantly, do not make your decision based upon the prestige of the university. Small, rigorous universities will give your children the opportunity to shine and involve themselves. Small universities enable students to build there own names. Prestigious, name-recognized universities quite often just charge you for a name. Always build a name, never buy one.

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

The small and focused classes, each instructed by very dedicated and well equipped faculty. Addionally, the school has incredible connections with businesses, due to its location in central Houston. Also has phenomenal new facilities and living accomodations.

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

Talk to actual students. Not the students hired by the school to promote its best aspects. Not the ones that voluntarily give guided tours. Talk to the guys on the soccer team, or the senior who has a few years of experience. Talk to as many different REAL students as you can find. Ask questions, regardless of how dumb or redundant you think they are. Try to figure out what you want in a college and don't be afraid to say "no" to the ones that don't fit. These are the best four years of your life. You will make lifelong friends and memories. You'll experience things that will shape who you are and who you will become. Don't be afraid of making mistakes. And don't be afraid of your professors. Most of them chose to leave their respective fields and teach. They are there to help you become the best version of yourself. So speak up. Make your voice heard and opinions known. Trust who you are and don't give up.

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

I wish I had known more about the Nursing program. I chose HBU specifically for that program. I also wish that my Nursing advisor had been more competent. If I knew then what I know now about how the school operates, I would be a few semesters away from graduating. Instead, I'm a junior who just BARELY finished my pre-requisites and got accepted into the program. I now make it my personal goal to inform all Pre-Nursing students of all the things I learned too late. Also, there aren't very many cute guys.

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

We have a new president that is taking our school to new heights. The only problem is that we don't yet have the resources to reach the new goals set for us. Thus, the tuition is sky-rocketing, and by the time the changes come about, I will have already graduated. I feel like I am being robbed. Also, since Hurricane Ike in September, a lot of our buildings and resources have been shut down. It has really killed some of the spirit on campus.

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

My school is a small, close knit community comprising of people from different cultures and beliefs, different financial backgrounds, and a dominant female ratio.

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

To start your search for the right college will take time. You should make a list of qualities of what you are looking for in a college. You should list what your interests are, what activities you enjoy, what you hope to accomplish academically, and more. This list will serve as a guide to compare your top college choices. Next comes the research. Attend the college night at your school?s facility, read over the appealing brochure, and visit the college website. Learning as much as you can about the school will help you when you visit the school. Visiting the school should give you a good feel of the people and faculty. All that lies next is your decision. However, now that you are in the perfect school does not mean you will have your amazing college experience. To accomplish this means to come out of your dorm, hang out in the local spots, get involved in different organizations, and attend the lectures. Don?t be afraid when asking others about their different cultures; you are at college to learn. Always be excited about what you are doing. Excitement will ensue a happy college experience.

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

The location of the school. The area does not seem too safe beyond the university's gates.
