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

I would tell parents and future students to stick to their instincts about a school. You can usually tell how well you will like a college by the people that you meet while visiting. Make sure to ask lots of questions and to get a good sense of what the school is like. It is also helpful to match up as best you can the right size, academic, athletic and extra curricular activities with your own needs and wants. If you can sit in on a typical class, to get a feel for the classroom. Meet any coaches that you may play for in the future and ask them how their players fit sports and studies into their schedules. Anothers important factor is location of the school. I would suggest keeping the distance from home, close enough that you could go home if you wanted to or get away when you need to. The environment around the school is important, make sure you appreciate the scenery because you will be spending the next four years of your life there. My last words of advice is that when you do get into a school, remember what a huge accomlpishment this is.

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

The food is bad. the school keeps promising us better food and service and so far all they ahve done is remodel the cafeteria.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Because it is a liberal arts school, we do not focus specifically on one area. they are training us to be jacks of all trades and masters of none

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

Many different social groups where one can find others like them.

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

I believe that the first impressions tend to be right ones. When visiting a college, future students need to feel comfortable and excited about their new school. Parents should keep in mind that the choice of the college belongs to the student. He or she will be the ones living at the dorms, going to classess and interacting with other students on a daily basis, so it is only natural to advise but not "tell" their kids which school is "the one." Also, new students should put as much effort as possible in the coursework and classes their first year. This first year in college tends to be the most difficult and sometimes the acquired gpa after the 2nd semester is less than satisfactory. I hope this advice helps, good luck!

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

In order to sucessfully determine which college is the right one, prospective students should visit the college at least one time and speak with several students from the school that are in different years. This will allow the students to gather multiple views about the school and come to a conclusion on the general attitude of students towards the institution. Additionally, prospective students should speak with professors and sit in for a class within the field of thier potential major. This will allow the students to get a more accurate feel for the academics of the college or university. Lastly, students should also communicate with their parents about the pros and cons of each school, especially if the parents are funding their child's education. This will help the student make the best possible and plausible choice when determining which college or university to attend.

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

College was going to be a lot more academically challenging than I expected it to be. If one wants to do well in a science major, it is more difficult at John Carroll than at most other universities.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There are not many majors and the class selection is very limited due to the small size of the school.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates, most of whom were nourished with silver spoons in their mouths as children, are well-focused on their studies while always aware of maintaining proper "social lives".

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

Parents, students, it is imperative that you take into account your financial situation while, at the same time, seeking the best education that you can afford. As regards to the college experience, I suggest that you do stay on campus if possible for the first year or so. Nothing can relate to such an experience when one is one his or her own and making friends. It can really be a great way to open your eyes to the world and to interact with a variety of different and wonderful people from all over God's green earth. It also helps one to re-evaluate his or herself. This has proven true with my own experience and is something I'll never forget; in being of a unique breed (Qu?b?cois), I have had the chance to mingle with people much different than myself and even came across some who share a common ancestry. Do not, by any means, feel obligated or compelled to go out on Thursday nights or weekends, as can often be the main talk around campus. Be an individual/yourself and you will profit more than you think any alcohol-related social gathering can promise.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A sincere individual with hopes to learn a great deal of useful information should attend this school. He or she should want to expand their mind for no reason other than to benefit the human race is some way(s) in the future. This person will have already realized that life is quite short and, therefore, that the knowledge and experience of this caliber will prove invaluable throughout his or her life.

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

To truly make the most of you college experience, you need to be organized and set boundries for yourself. It is very important to remember that you are at school to get an education. As alluring as facebook is, do not waste your whole day looking at pictures and bumperstickers. If you stay on top of your work during the week; you have plenty of time to go out and have fun on the weekends. Furthermore, you should try to get involved in extracurriculars on campus. They help you meet new people and develope skills that future employers will be looking for. I personally am very involved in two organizations on campus. If you can stay on top of your work, extracurriculars do not hinder your GPA. If you do find yourself to struggling in class, talk to your professor. Even if you do not find their help usefull, it still shows you are invested in the class. One last word of advice- be kind to your roommate. Even if you are two completely different people and cannot stand each other, be nice and respectful because at the end of the day they still have a key to your room.

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

Classes are very hard and require a lot outside work.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who likes to work really hard and likes to have fun

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are usually cooperative with the teacher, like to have fun and fool around in class but still learn at the same time, and are easy to get along with.

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

When looking for the right college, look everywhere. There might be things that you're looking for specifically but then realize it's not what you want after all. Definately make a list of things you want out of a school but be willing to give and take. Just because a particular school doesn't have everything you want, it may have everything you need. Look for activities the student can get involved in. Having a social group is vital to your health. If your social life is slacking, then school work slacks too. Physical activity is also important.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is willing to work hard but play hard. They should be the kind of person that can deal with stress because reguardless of what you're involved in, the course work is challenging and they have to be willing to put quality work into it.
