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

I would recommend that students look through college brochures with the parents so everyone will be on the same page when it comes to applying to those schools that are appealing. There are a few things that should be carefully looked over when choosing a college. First, tuition is by far the most important factor becasue it can have major affect even after graduating, what with loans and all. So, look into scholarships, grants, and any type of financial aid that will lower that tuition bill because it can stand in the way of registration and graduation. Second, location affects tuition and independence. A person who attends school out of state will learn to be independent quite fast when they realize they won't be bale to run home as they please. Third, majors and minors definitely need to be well examined and chosen. When deciding what career to go into, it is important to pick the right major(s) and/or minor that will transition properly into graduate school, medical school or the job market. College is probably the most important time of an individual's life because it allows growth mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. So, choose wisely.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about attending Johns Hopkins is the reputation that it has throughout the world. I enjoy all my fellow students who attend Hopkins and can easily relate to me intellectually. It has always been my desire to live and study along others who have the same academic and career goals as I do. The high quality of education that I am receiving now plays into the reputation that Hopkins has, and therefore, is the best thing about my school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who keeps to himself/herself and doesn't like to interact with others will have a difficult time staying socially in tune. There are times to remain to one's self, but there are many opportunities to get to know the people who are at school with you.

Hopkins is missing a lot of things like school spirit and pride, but people here complain too much.

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

I think it was important to visit and schools and spend time with students away from parents and meet-and-greet events. By doing this I got to see the negatives that were not advertised. The most important thing that defined my college experience is that I got what I put in. I joined a fraternity, a varisty sport, and other groups to have a better time and I never took school work to the extreme that other students here did. My best advice is to know who you are and where you will succeed. I imagine its easy to make friends and enjoy life at a big school and it might be a little harder if you attend a small school that does not fit you. Try your best to know where you'll succeed and try your hardest to make memories wherever you go.

What's unique about your campus?

Its a small school so its easy to get involved and succeed in groups.

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

Finding the right college is about finding yourself and your likes and dislikes. First, sit down and figure out what your passions are. Then see if if that lines up with your career goals and look for schools to aid you in that. If undecided, that only means you have more opportunity to explore many different subjects until you find your true calling! Look into different types of programs, but not just academic- extracurriculars are just as important! Also think about the location and size of the campus- are you more partial to urban life? Do you like a small, closed campus? These are all important factors when choosing the right school for you. As for making the most of your college experience.. get out there! Meet a diverse group of people and join clubs. Focus on your academics but don't kill yourself. It's all about balance.

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

it's got the best pre-medical program in the nation and also is a leading research university. it's the #12 top university in the nation.

What's unique about your campus?

great campus, perfect size, good opportunity for research

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

Let your kids decide. Visit over night. Ask students what it is really like. Making the most of college: Don't forget that college is a learning experience for life, not just for acedemia. Grow as a person, get better, be the man you want to be when you leave college and learn some knowledge along the way.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who don't work hard. People who need a lot of pushing from some one else to accomplish tasks.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The administrators and staff are terrible. It seems strange that with professors so brilliant and medically inclined that health and wellness asks if you smoke and then hands you condoms on your way out when you clearly have a non drug related, non sex related illness.

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

The first thing any high school student should do is pick an area that he is interested in. The student should ask himself what his strong qualities are and make a list of colleges that fit those standards. He should then pursue more information regarding these colleges by going to his career center, researching the university online, or even visiting the campus itself. The student should think about what the pros and cons are for each college, and weigh out which university will be most beneficial. These things will help guide the student towards the path that is specific only to him. There will be a myriad of things to explore in college. The only way to find exactly how the student fits into college life is to surrender to all new opportunities. He will be most successful if he understands that there are no closed doors to stand in the way of pursuing any future. It is completely normal to open a few doors and realize the one opened is not the right path. Failure should not be discouraging, but should inspire the student to continue to try and find his niche. Self realization is a life long process.

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

Johns Hopkins has the best Biomedical Engineering program in the entire nation. The only students that attend Hopkins are cream of the crop and are very hardworking.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who are not responsible, hardworking, or care about their future should not attend Hopkins.

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

Johns Hopkins University is a school which has a very demanding workload and its' vigorous competition constantly stresses out students who don't feel like they are as good as others.

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

Despite the fact that Hopkins is in the heart of Baltimore city, it is very safe and has a peaceful look to it. The undergrad size is perfect and when walking around campus, i believe it is a pretty site. Also, a major reason for deciding JHU is that it is close to home which sometimes I like to go to and relax when I am too stressed out from the competition and workload.

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

Many high school students see college as an opportunity to move far away from home and the communities they grew up in. However, after being in college for a year, I have learned that being close to home was possibly the best decision I've ever made. I still live on campus and can enjoy the 'college life,' but know that if I want to sleep in my bed I'm just a short drive away. And believe it or not, a majority of my friends that have left the state to attend college returned home within the year and transferred. Students- you might not believe it or realize it, but home is truly where the heart is. As for both students and parents I recommend looking at all options when selecting colleges, from the types of meal plans to available housing, security and activites. While the school's popularity is highly ranked in a students mind, it often distracts from the things they should be looking for-size, comfort, and flexibilty. Afterall, if you're not so close to home, then your college will become your new home and you want to make the best situation possible.

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

The most important thing to keep in mind when entering into the college experience is to keep an open and fresh mind. As a student, you have so much in front of you that if you let your prejudices get in the way then you will be missing out on a great deal. Also, don't do yourself the disfavor of confining yourself to just academics; explore a little bit. At the same time you should still be prudent and pursue academics with zeal as it is easy to underestimate the commitment required at first.

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

The level of commitment required to do well at this school surprised me and so I wish I had known that before hand.

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

Allow for a visit of more than just one day! Stay near campus and walk around and talk to as many people as you can. Also, walk around the surrounding part of town/city. Find out everything you can about what students do for fun! If there are sports games or concerts going on while you are there, attend them! This is the best way to feal like you acctually go there! If you don't feel like you fit in within those couple days, you may not.

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

I wish I would have known more about the financial situation.

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

The worst thing about my school is the money. It is very hard to recieve any kind of financial aid to attend this school. Anther problem is that this school has many campus's and not all of them are renovated and up-to-date.
