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

Do as much research as possible about any schools you are interested it, if in doubt apply!! then once you have your exceptance letters compare financial aid offered, with school visits(never enroll in a school you have never visited!!!) and talk it over with family and friends. once you have found the school for you, get out there!!! attend orientation events(no matter how lame you think they are) , you will make some really good friends there and learn all about your new school. join clubs and socialize with your peers, once the first week is over you will need thoes new friendships to make it through the year ahead! the goal is to never look back and wish you had joined that club, or attended that class, this is your time to grow into person you will become, and enjoy it!

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

that it is a small school perfectly located near Chicago, which is important for my major.

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

It is located in the city, complete with public transportation on campus, and yet it maintains a suburban feel. It is also small enough to be a real community, not just a bunch of people crowded together who pass each other on the sidewalks from time to time.

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

I would tell parents not to worry, but to still ask questions. Also, parents really can trust that their student has an idea what he wants in a school and often, what he wants to study. The student certainly knows his interests better than the parent! For the student, my biggest advice is to get involved and learn the good things about your school. There are always unique and exciting things at and about a school, you just have to find it. By getting involved, you will get more out of your college experience, and you can still do just as well (or better) in your classes. You'll also develop life-long friendships and helpful networking connections that will serve you well when you reach the "real world" and are looking for the best job or someone with certain knowledge to work with you when your specialties are not the only ones required. Also, use resources provided by your school, whether that is free tutoring for a class you are struggling in or career fairs, a career center, and/or an alumni network for finding a summer internship or post-graduation job.

What's unique about your campus?

A strong academic focus with many opportunities to keep your life balanced spiritually, socially, etc. Also, a close community that allows for the development of life-long friendships and many networking opportunities.

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

Do more than contemplate where you want to go in life. Hit the books, talk to your neighbors, friends' parents, whoever it might be that works somewhere you're interested in. If you want to go into engineering or science, read up on the basic fields to get a feel for what they are and the importance of each. For some, it seems best to pick a college where you'll have plenty of friends from high school to help ease you into this new environment. For others, high school seems better forgotten completely. All in all, it's probably better to just leave this problem out of the selection process. College is great either way. Many who have gone either way have had wondeful college experiences. Those who go to a school where everyone is a new face will find new friends immediately if they so desire. It's simply a natural response to a new environment. If it seems intimidating, step back and take a breather. Very often, the people you meet in the first two weeks of college can become your best friends for the rest of your life.

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

The connections I have made through the school's programs, and the useful material I have learned in my field already. I am motivated to start working on projects of my own with my knowledge of electrical systems and circuitry.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

We don't have anything binding us together. There's no spirit because most people don't have a good reason to be spirited. Our strongest talents need more publicity. For example, there are many students very talented in martial arts that go to this school, but there is no team, or even an intramural club for them to interact or be watched and praised.

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

A lot of opportunity but student initiative and involvement necessary for that to happen; Things are not going to come to you so find out what you want out of college by trying the things offered to you and get involved because there are so many opportunities.

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

To find the perfect school for yourself or for your son or daughter, figure out what setting you are most comfortable in. Decide what has the opportunities you'd like to have and make a decision from there. It is so important to visit the school and talk to people who aren't just admissions representatives. Also, no matter where you go, college is what you make of it. There are plenty of people on a college campus and it isn't hard to join or even create a group or club that pertains to your interests.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who is open and accepting of new things. Who wants to experience different things, cultures, religions, events. Also, anyone who is interested in science egineering or architecture will definitely benefit from being at this campus. There is a plethora of research opportunitites and a lot of professors want their students to succeed.

IIT has the idealism of twisty paths across large grassy squares and between striking modern architecture, but everyone's too busy to notice.

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

Choose a school by its extra-curricular activities. Anyone can apply themselves to a subject and master it, but the true difficulty in doing that is in how much of your old habits you're forced to give up. You can't go out drinking every night and expect to master brain surgery, but on the other hand, earning your Ph.D won't make you happy if you are forced to give up those hobbies that you truly love to do so. Watch the students on campus and see how they direct their free energy. If they spend every night partying, they probably aren't being engaged by their courses, but if they are totally devoted to their coursework, they are losing sight of the bigger picture. Intelligent leisure, like hobby robotics or any kind of art, that students devote themselves to as much as to their school work is a sure sign that that college is doing something very right.
