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

When searching for college one must learn to be a bit selfish. One has to think about themselves. Despite what everyone else wants you to do you must make your own decisions without the influence of others. I learned this after experiencing it personally. My family wasn’t ready for me to leave the house. They felt that I could achieve my goals by going to any college that was close to home. They didn’t help me realize that sometimes even if it may seem difficult one must leave our comfort zone and explore. If I would have been open to the idea of leaving home many more opportunities would have been available to me. Despite my family’s dependence on me, I feel that they would have been benefited by not having me around. In addition, if I would have known about certain opportunity programs such as the HEOP or the CSTEP programs I also would have applied to some colleges I felt were out of my reach because of the cost of tuition and other expenses. To have a great college experience and use its maximal benefit one must do lots of research and be open minded.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The thing I dislike the most is the course availability. I am a freshman going into my second semester and I have been frustrated by my class schedule. This college does not offer enough courses with a variety of times. Since I am a commuter I feel that I am at a disadvantaged when I have scattered class options. Coming from a low income family I would be benefited by an increased amount of options because it would allow me to obtain a part-time job, which I am in great need of in order to afford attending college.

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

It gives you a sense of independence and sets you up for real life experience. In college you don't have your parents telling you what to do anymore so you have to make your own decisions. I have learned hard work can get you wwhere you want to be. In college you are going to need to work harder than you did in high school to get the grades you want.

What's unique about your campus?

Community Service projects because we get to help many other people in need

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

I learn more about myself and the world around me everyday by pushing and challenging myself through college. Higher education is not an easy path, yet I find it is a necessary path for me to follow in my efforts to advance and strenghten myself as a strong young woman.

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

As of today November 13, 2010, I am unemployed an having a hard time finding a job. The Unemployement Office is sending me back to college to get my degree in Business Administration and I need more help to fund my education. Its hard finding a job I go out each and every day searching for one. With just an Associated Degree In Accounting which was back in 1981 everything have changed and I Believe that once I get my BS in Business Admistration I will be able to get a job with out any problems. Once I get my BS in Business Administration I will be more equipped to be a leader and service in my communities. I believe today, more than ever, education is critical for advancement and professional opportunties. On January 31, 2011 I will be attending Mid-Continent University Advantage as a full time student . In closing I would like to say Thank you, for allowing me to better my self and advancing my career at the same time.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are student leaders and role models of Edmund Rice which we share in common the goal of being the change we wish to see in the world.

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

I have developped a skill set to be a leader, a role model, and an activist to be the change I wish to see in this world. Iona College has given me a valuable education because my knowledge has broadened with new ideas, concepts, and theories. I have developped a deeper understanding of the world and a greater appreciation for Edmund Rice. When I graduate, I will be one in my generation who will stand out with confidence and make a difference in the world.

What's unique about your campus?

Iona College is where role models and leaders are made who will continue the work of blessed Edmund Rice. Iona is a traditional Catholic college that is centered on the life of Edmund Rice. Iona encourages students to be role models and leaders of Edmund Rice in their generation by giving back to the community. Students are exposed to harsh realities of our world such as poverty and hunger. Iona has organizations such as the Edmund Rice Society where student leaders participate in midnight runs, soup kitchens, and charity events. Students develop a skill set to continue being a change.

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

My school is a close-knit community based powerhouse of education, complete with a very strong faculty and abundant benefits featuring a beautiful campus.

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

I have found a new place for myself in society. Enterting as a timid freshman, I had an emmense fear of the change ahead, but I approached it head on and was pleasantly surprised. Not only have I gained education and experience, I have found new peers with whom to share my experiences. My experiences have been very valuable because I have already learned so much about life and the vast world around me. After going to grammar and high school with many of the same people, finally branching out was refreshing and offered a whole new point of view.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing is the closeness of it all, from the closeness with other students and roommates, to the closeness between students and professors, not just space-wise (since the campus is cozy), but emotionally as well, it provides a sense of security and belonging.

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

A chance to grow, develop, and affect changes to achieve my career goals. My challenges of pursuing a better quality of life have given me a renewed sense of self. The rewards received from hard work have propelled me further in wanting to achieve my chosen career. I have also met some very committed people during my college career and they have helped me to see what it means 'earn your life.' Like the old saying goes, "You are what you eat," in this case you are what you decide to be. Live your dream and settle for nothing less. My favorite quote helps me to see this happen everyday: "In the land of 'never-will,' do you dwell contently."-JEM

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

I am a single parent of two small children. I had them at a young age. The most rewarding experience was to walk with my camp and gown with my son in the crowd cheering me on. Through my learning experience, he too now knows how important a higher education is in this competitive market today. I am requesting this assistance to show them the sky is the limit.

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

At the time Iona College was a small one. Now it has grown significantly to meet the needs of a growing population

What kind of person should attend this school?

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

I would tell myself that boys and relationships are not as important as they seem, everything will come in due time. Sex, kissing all that is definately worth waiting for the right person for. Fiting in should not be your priority, be proud of what and who you are it's cool to be unique and independent. School work is important! It's a lot harder to "wing" things in college than in high school. You are gunna have to study for some things and doing your homework actually counts a lot! Talk more, get involved; while theres nothing wrong with being shy and quiet you need to know thats its improtant to speak up for yourself. Don't let people influence you. Participate in class, don't worry about looking like a kiss up, trust me at this point your professors opinion of you is way more important than that of your peers. Keep your parents involved in your life they may not be the best but they're all you've got. Be honest about everything especially with your parents trust me it will make life so much easier. Don't skip class its not worth it. Work!

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

It's important to not lose focus on what your really there for. Time management and prioritizing are a must!

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

I tend to brag about how cute the guys are. We do have some pretty cool professors that give tons of chances and the students are laid back and goofy for the most part.
