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

Iona College is a great school. Students that do not get home sick or angry at the town surrounding this college really enjoy. It is said that you have to create your own fun at Iona. This is true. If you attend this school you have to learn to deal with boredom. Their are many weekends that students just go home. The upper classmen usually don't go home. Furthermore almost all of the professors are still working in their field. Because of this internships are plentiful here. If you cannot get an internship here I do not think you could get one anywhere. Iona sets you up for a job after school. And some of the professors are pretty funny. Overall this school was not my first choice, if I had the chance to choose a different school at the begining I would. I have, however fallen in love with this school. Even though the administrators hate me and I'm not even a troublemaker. They just like to get everyone in trouble. Beware of staff here.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People that should attend this school are people from far away. The appeal of Iona College only appeals to out-of-towners and they are the only ones who seem to stay long enough to graduate.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you hate guidos, dislike commuters, and hate the law then stay away. Also people who live near nyc.

Make sure you visit the schools and make sure they fit your needs. If you like big classes then go to big unoversity otherwise choose another school which is smaller. Check ratings of the school online and also see what other college students think of it. Another thing to look into is how many freshman go back to that school for their sophmore year.

What kind of person should attend this school?

a person who likes a small classes and small campus but loves to be close to the city

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

I would say to research all the colleges or universities you are interested in to the fullest. Don't rush into any decisions, and make sure you will be able to live with your choice for the next four years. Make sure they have the major you want, as well as the extra cirricular activities you enjoy. The friends you meet here are going to be the ones that you grow up with, in every aspect. They will help you through the good and bad times, and see you at your worst. Be ready to see many things you probably thought you never would. A lot of things go on and change during the college experience, and its best to love it and just go with it. There is no experience like it, and regret is the worst thing. Do your best regarding the work, and dont be afraid to ask for help when you need it. College is serious, its different from high school.

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

There would be a lot of students leaving on the weekends.

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

When it comes to finding the right school, the most important thing to do is to first make sure they have your major. If you have a learning disability, make sure the school has the necessary resources to help you succeed. For parents, make sure the school is in your price range, because besides tuition there many other expenses that have to be factored in. Make sure the school has a lot of extraccuricular activities to get involved in, so you can meet new people. I also say to visit as many schools as you can. Once you step on the campus , if it's the school for you, you will feel it. You might feel comfortable in more than place, and should find out more about what people like to do for fun, how the professors are, and if there are places nearby where you can pick up anything you may need at any time of the day. In order to make the most of your college experience, you have to get involved. Getting involved will help you make new friends, present netwroking opportunities, and can get you involved in community service activities that look good on a resume.

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

The school is small so when people start rumors they spread...kind of like high school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing is that there are plenty of students that do not get involved on campus.

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

I would encourage students to take the time to visit all of the schools that they are considering and to speak to current students so that they choose the best school for them. I would also encourage students to research the clubs and organizations of the schools that they are considering, as well as the majors, so that they are better able to understand each aspect of the college. Lastly, I would encourage students to choose the college that they feel is the best fit for them, regardless of what others may want for them. There are so many different things to keep in mind when choosing a college, including finances, majors, and the social community, but in the end you have to be happy with your choice. Make sure that the people are accepting and can relate to you. Also make sure that the college can offer the major that you want. When you are in college, it is important to be open and accepting of others. It is also important to remember to have fun, but have your priorities in order. Making friends is very important, but do not forget that schoolwork is as well.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There aren't many resources for commuters. As a commuter, it is difficult to make friends and find parking.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I think Iona is best known for being a college that is the perfect size, enabling the students who attend Iona to get comfortable easily to the college life. It is also a school that teaches students to strive and find a rewarding career after graduating.

I think what is unique about my school are the professors. I haven't had any problems with any of my professors; they are all wise individuals who are friendly and kind, flexible to your needs, and help you whenever you need help.

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

I think the key to finding the right college is the feelings you get when you visit, like at an open house. At Iona, I felt like I was part of the community and I wasn't even in college yet. If you see yourself being comfortable in that setting in regards to class size, student population, and the current professors and students you have met - then that is a very good sign. Afterall, you have to be comfortable in the school you are choosing - you're going to be there for four years!! And of course, the college also has to fulfill your academic needs, whether you want to be a teacher or an engineer take a look at the programs offered and see what school will give you the best preparation and academics to succeed in a career for the future.

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

The most important advice I could give anyone when trying to find the right college would be to look at the whole picture and to chose something that excites and interests them. Do not stick to the familiar, go outside one's comfort zone. College is about learning not only what is found in text books, but also about learning about ones self. Looking at the whole picture, choose a school that challenges you academically and socially, that inspires you to try new things and go above and beyond. You also want a school that can provide you with a safe and comfortable living environment, and the resorces necessary to achieve your goals and aspirations. Finally, chosing a school with a strong sense of community is essential. Knowing that people, whether it be students or faculty, are available to help you with any issues you may have is comforting. It allows you to avoid feeling overwhelmed and feel secure when you mistakes because you know someone is there to help.

Make sure you pick the school you want to go through not the school someone else wants you to go to. When in college, just have fun but remember you're there for school and dont let your social life disrupt that.
