Describe the students at your school.

As you enter your concentration area classes, the class size shrinks and you tend to have the same classes with the same people. You become somewhat of a family because you study together, and the bond is tight. Although I graduated May 2008, I still remain very close with my classmates.

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

The college process is both exciting and scary for both students AND parents. I suggest to students to go with an open mind, and get involved. They say college is what you make of it. They have clubs/organizations for everyone. Most schools, if they do not have anything you are interested in (which is highly unlikely) will typically allow you to form your own club/organization. It's easy to meet people both inside and outside the classroom. When you're a freshman, everyone is in the same place: scared, excited, and anxious to meet people. Take advantage of that moment. Be friendly and courteous to others. Also, make sure to go to class early and develop a good relationship with your professor. They are there to help you. Don't be scared of them. They're the ones that have the final say in your grade so try and get on their good side. Also, for parents, college students are stressed. Do not pressure them about grades/etc. They will succeed and learn to find their own niche.

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

I think going into college no one really knows what to expect. College is what you make of it. I knew that before entering college; and I wish everyone had known that. I was never one to sit in a dorm room by myself. By being an involved student with on-campus clubs and organizations, I believe I had the best time I could possibly have at college. Sometimes I felt like I did too much; but it was so worth it.

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

Tips for choosing and surviving college : Talk to your academic advisor about your courses and major. In addition, look at the college course catalog to have an idea of what courses are required for your major. If you are curious about campus life ask students questions that you may have. Some areas that you want to cover are housing, meal plan, classes, study areas, career development, guest speakers, activities, sports, dorm life, etc. You have to give a certain amount of time of studying and reviewing material that you have learned in class. Allow some time each day after class to review your notes. Then when it comes time for midterm and final exams you won?t have to cram weeks of notes and readings. Check the total cost of attendance of the school. If you are awarded scholarships or grants for a certain amount of money that covers part of your tuition and fees look at the balance and see what you can afford. Some scholarships don?t increase over four years regardless of an increase in tuition. Most colleges increase their tuition and fees every year. Therefore, the balance that you have to pay every year will increase.

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

The total cost of attendance. I did not learn how much it actually cost to attend Iona until the second semester of the my freshmen year . The school does not guarantee housing after sophomore year of college. In addition, the school is located right between two different economically areas of New Rochelle. The northern part is wealthy or well off and the southern part is not very wealthy. The school has a great campus ministry department that offers diverse opportunities for students to meet other people who may have the same interest as them.

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

There is a sense of community at Iona . In addition offers many programs that foster spiritual development and cultural awareness.

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

First and foremost, follow your heart. Second, follow your gut; if you have a feeling that a school is right for you chances are your right. Take advice from everyone around you, but weight that advice no more than 40% on your decision. Remember, it is your decision to make. Never worry about getting 'stuck' in the school you first pick. It is easy to transfer if you decide that the school isn't right for you after all. Choose a place where you can feel at home. If you're not able to relax and feel at home it wont matter how great the school you wont be happy. College is transition so dont be afraid to try new things. Put yourself out there and live it up. If you are discouraged at first, hang in there it usually gets better. College is a big change for everyone; this change can create the bonds of friendship and love the will last a lifetime. Embrace the change and enjoy the process. As much as everyone stress it, it is not about the destination of graduation but truly how you get there and who your with. Finally, have fun!

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

FInd a college that will give the biggest opportunity to succeed in both the social aspects and academic. I choose IONA for their great internship program, closeness to New York City and the great relationships that undergraduates have with the alumni. IONA Also provides easy opportunities to meet and socialize with new people making it easy to make friends. My suggestion to visit every school you apply to and get a feeling for the campus. You can generally get a good idea if this college is for you the moment you step on campus.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

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

Vist schools before you make a choice on where you will attend! Most of the time, when you walk onto the campus were you fit best, you will feel it. Take things like the class size and campus size into consideration. Remember how far you have to travel to visit home, people often get homesick. Check out the resources on campus. Make sure there are lots of places for studying. Find out what the extracurricular activities are offered on campus. When you finally chose your school, get involved! There are always events for freshmen, so take advantage! Sometimes they may seem lame, but people spend time on them to help you adapt to school. Parents--let your children enjoy school. Remember, this is where they will be for the next four years! And a students education will be one of the most important part of there life as an adult.

What's unique about your campus?

We have small class sizes which makes up a close community. Therefore, professors are always around to help you with your school work whenever you are in need. This makes me feel much more comfortable when I am participating in class discussion.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The amount of money that it costs. Since I am paying for school on my own, it is very difficult finding student loans with the economy.

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

The best advice I would you give parents and/or students about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience is to first understand who you, or your child really is. After getting to know yourself or other, start seeking out colleges to find out which one feels right. Do remember that the size of the college does not have to be necessarily bigger than the high school attended. Smaller-sized colleges are much more convenient and friendly as you are not just a number, you are a name. People, including professors, get to know you better instead of being student number: 4,089. Once enrolled in the college, get to know at least one faculty member, never hide your academic problems, learn to manage your time, get involved, learn from differences, and most importantly: study hard!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A terrorist. Terrorism is not accepted in this school and never will be. So if you're not a terrorist, Welcome to Iona!
