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

Relax. This is exactly were you are supposed to be. You will be fine. Make friends with other students and the teachers. They are there to help. Make your dorm room home. Take everything you could ever want in the first trip. You will be amazed at how much stuff you can fit in there. Leave the door open. Everyone else is just as lost as you are. Take a chance and do things outside your comfort zone. Freshman orientation is loads of fun. Go for it.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is that most people have the same goal I do: living to the glory of God.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school has a major focus on living the Christian. You are expected to give back to the community and reach out. If you want to sit in your dorm room and be unsocial, don't come here. Everyone is friendly regardless of age, gender, race, or anything else.

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

Danielle, don't worry about anything. New friends will come along quickly and they will be the kind that will last for a life time. Try not to sweat the small stuff and if someone annoys you, forgive and forget. And don't worry so much about your classes, just because you had a bad experience with an online course the beginning of this year, doesn't mean that your classes will be bad. Just have fun in college and don't freak whenever everyone else knows what they want to do with their life. You'll figure it all out eventually and have a great time along the way. Have fun girl and see you later.

What's unique about your campus?

The atmosphere here is amazing. Everyone is willing to help out and the professors are very helpful.

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

I would tell myself that I should take dual-credit courses to get through some of my basics. After taking the required classes that I needed for my basics, I wish I had taken dual-credit courses which would have saved me a lot of time and money now. I would also tell myself to stop being depressed all the time and be happy that God loved me and that life isn't all about High School.

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

The worst part of Howard Payne University is the visitation policy. Guys and girls are in separate dorms and only allowed to go to the opposite sexes dorm from 7-9pm monday to saturday and 1-9pm on sundays. I have a fiancee and I would like to be able to spend more time just hanging out with her in the comfort of a dorm than going somewhere where there is a lot of people.

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

The Christian fellowship here is very inspiring. I accepted Christ while attending Howard Payne, so I am not ashamed at all to openly tell of how great it is to be here spiritually.

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

The best advice to give parents and students: take a deep breath! The next couple of year will be the most exciting and trying times of your lives. Finding the right college all depends on the student's career choice. Make sure the college has the right degree program and the connections for job opportunities after graduation. To make the most out of college is to jump into everything possible. It will open the door for endless friendships. Making the right friends will make or break your college experience. Lastly, take time to "smell the roses." The next couple of years will fly by, and remember to enjoy every minute!

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

First of all, it starts with your high school career. Get your grades in place then start looking at a variety of colleges early. The earlier you start looking and applying for different colleges the better chance you will have at getting the one you want. Choose different colleges with different sizes visit them and get a feel for what you may or may not like. Parents, don?t decide for you kids what school they want; it?s their future so simply give them the pros and cons of your opinions. Students, choose something you can live with for the next four or more years. You are going to be spending the majority of your time there, so make sure it?s a place you are not going to hate in three weeks. Next start looking at the cost and then the scholarships they offer. Make sure you get something you can afford and won't be paying off the rest of your life. After finding the right one, get settled in and make the most of the beginning of the rest of your life. Corny I know but it?s for real. Mostly, study hard and have fun!

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

The small town. You have to drive an hour before you get anywhere to do anything fun. But its great none-the-less.

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?

Find the college that fits you best. Some people will do better at smaller schools and some won't. Find out what schools are out there and don't think you can't afford it. And don't write off a school because it is smaller.

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

I wish I would have known that being open minded is a huge need for a person to learn. If I would have known that I was going to change my views and opinions I think I would have began to learn things quicker.

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

The atheletic program simply because they don't do a very good job recruiting. And because of this the turnover rate is not very good. Some kids who have no business playing college sports are allowed to come and try out with the hopes of playing and then when they realize they aren't going to get to they leave the school because they didn't really come to school they only came to play sports.

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

The great thing about HPU has to be the small class size. I have yet to have a class with over 27 people. It's great. The professors know who you really are...a person, not a number!

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

Really think about what you want in a college. Think about the size of your high school...was it small? big? Do you really want to go to a school of 20,000 students or would you do better in a school of 1,500 (Howard Payne)? Look into the social activities the school provides...what are you looking for in that? Yes, you have chosen to go to college to earn your degree, but you also are there to live and begin your adult life. Also look into the town. How big is the town and what is there to do? Will the town just get you in trouble or will it help you further with your education?

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Everyone will feel welcome at HPU. This is a private, Christian University and everyone will make you feel welcome regardless of your religious, racial, or ethical backgrounds.

Parents: allow your children to pick where he or she wants to go. Dont force a school on your child, bu simply suggest visiting schools to find where he or she will fit in most. Money should be an issue in helping your student find a school. Now-a-days, they have great scholarships and loans that can fit your lifestyle best. Students: its not impossible for you to find a college that suits you. Going to a college where you fit in is the best choice you could make. Allow yourself to be vulnerable and make new friends. Dont worry about it being to expensive, ther are many opportunities to pay for school, just ask. GOOD LUCK!

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

the food. although its really good, it sometimes becomes old, meaning you eat it over and over again

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

Finding a college is like finding a pair of shoes; they may look great but sometimes they just dont fit you the right way. Look for the school that feels great, fits you, and has what you want it to have. First impressions are often correct, so trust your instincts and pick what best fits you.
