Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Johnson is best known for its reliability as a place that churches can trust to send them good ministers, youth ministers, children's ministers, and worship ministers. It is also known for its excellent Counseling and Teacher Ed programs that offer top of the line education in their fields. To those who have visited Johnson, it is known for its friendliness. The students, faculty, and staff here are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. You can't walk across campus without getting a "hey" from five people. There is also some beatiful views seen from on campus.

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

I would say that the best advice initially would be to figure out exactly what it is that would make you happy to do for the rest of your life. After you have done this, start researching how you can go about accomplishing that goal. Look for a college with the best program for the money. Don't ever rule out the thought of going beyond four years. While in undergrad, have a good social life, but do your best to limit any alcohol use, avoid drunkeness and recreational drug use. Do things that are going to benefit your future. Don't be afraid to try something new. Seek out things that interest you to see value they can add to your life. While completing your program, look for internships that are directly related to what you want to do and take them. Find out if it is what you really want to do. Don't be afraid to change your mind, just don't make a habit of it. Take your undergrad to enjoy your life in it's prime. Set yourself up for a successful future and pursue the most education you can for your field of study.

What's unique about your campus?

Johnson offers a place where students can come and gain the knowledge and wisdom they need to go into a field of ministry, counseling, or teaching. The small class sizes allow for students to be in a better learning environment. The smaller campus size makes getting to know other people easier. With less people around the faces are much more familiar than those at larger schools. The friendships you build here will be ones that last. If you work hard at it, this place can be a spiritual training ground to prepare those going into ministry for battles to come.

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

Johnson is a private Christian college with a rich history. The campus is beautiful and well maintained. The teachers and students are very considerate. This is a great place to be for those who want to pursue careers in the Ministry.

It is a smaller, more conservative campus. It is bright and colonial and maintained very well. The students and teachers were very considerate compared with other schools I visisted.

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

When chosing a college or university for one's education a few ideas to think about include size, learning style, career, degree programs, and cost. First, importance must be placed on size and learning style because the two go hand-in-hand. I prefer smaller class sizes because I learn better from discussions, personal contact with the professors and students, and visual aids. Most colleges have visual aids, but when the school has a larger enrollement, generally class sizes are larger and participating in discussion and personal contact are more difficult. However, if an individual learns better from lectures in visual and audible learning styles then a larger university will suit her. Second, career and degree programs also factor into a decision. Smaller colleges usually offer less programs, while larger colleges offer more. For instance, my school specializes in Ministry careers, and may not be for someone who had not decided what to do with her life. Larger Universities contain more programs and areas of study, and allow more room for those who are undecided. Lastly, cost has much importance, but should not interfere with the previous options. The right education for an individual is priceless.

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

To find the right college I would advise parents and students to visit a few colleges and take the tours around campus. Knowing the background of the college and what it offers your son or daughter is vital to there growth in character and stature. Pick out a school that you know they will work hard but yet still enjoy the college life and atmosphere. If you have a chance to go to a couple classes of your degree area that you want to pursue this would be the most beneficial to finding out if the teachers are enthusiatic and passionate. Also, after visiting the campus and the housing that your student might be staying in go check out the town and see what it has to offer. Does it have places to work, or eat at, or recreation to enjoy, and lastly are there places to serve at and get connected? There's that old saying you pay for what you get, and no matter what college you go to it will be expensive, but no amount of money is worth to much for your child's education.

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

Remember to give your child the space they need to make a decision but offer to give advice. Remember that you know them better than anyone, you raised them, but they are becoming adults and may not want your advice, don't be hurt by this. You can still call them, but ask how often they want to be called. Or ask them to call you first and if they don't after 2 weeks call them ONCE! They aren't you and they have there own desires. Pray for them, and know that they'll make mistakes. Let them know you love them anyway. Set phone dates so you don't "intrude" on their new lives. Offer your house as a place to bring a friend who can't travel home for the holidays. Don't lose hope. You will miss eachother and the college life is very different, but pace yourself and stay focused on your goal!

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

I wish I had known a little more about how we're treated. Sometimes I feel because we are being held accountable we are also still treated like high schoolers. I love that we are held accountable by professors and students, but I feel like there are so many rules, and so little commitment to correct us when we're wrong and offer tough love. I wish I would have taken my first semester more seriously in setting standards for my academics.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who has a growing faith in God. Someone looking for real opportunities to serve in the Kingdom of God. Someone who already has there identity set and won't be shaken. Someone who isn't afraid to be above reproach. Someone who loves God with all there heart and soul, mind and strength, and knows what it means to live that way.

Find a college where your friends will be good family! The people you meet will shape you into who you become, so find a school with a community of people who you wish to be like. Find a good family!

Johnson does not give scholarships for athletics but does for academics. It makes it cheaper to attend. Its hard though wanting to do athletics because the school does not take athletics very seriously, so do not expect to do well in sports because of bad coaching etc... You will learn a lot about the bible though and is a good place to get a degree to someday go into the ministry.

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

It meant so much to me during my childhood that my parents saw my interests and my strengths. They nurtured me and encouraged me in these areas because they thought it was more important for me to live my strengths than to just conquer my weaknesses. The point for most of us going to college is to study and learn in an area that will eventually be what we spend most of our life doing. I feel like college is just another step in my journey. It is important to find a school where the student can learn more about what they are already good at, so that someday they can do what he/she loves to do. So much of the time people go to college just to get a degree and end up just making a living. Your education should be a continuation and extention of who you are and what you can become. What a novel idea, getting paid to do what you LOVE to do. Thank you, Aaron Early

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

Find several current students to ask questions of. Professors and administrators are partial to the school. Students live it and are where you're considering going. Ask different students. Some students are over optimistic and some students are particularly negative. Have lists of questions prepared, by be sure to ask what the students had wished they had known before they arrived.

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

The Media Department is built up to be a little bit more than it is. They don't really tell you that there is only one video and TV professor. Because Meida is my major I was disappointed.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The Science classes. The profess or is old and a good percentage of students fail his classes. You have to take his classes because they are required and there is only one science professor.

Making sure that the college you send your child is where you want them to go. Also make sure that they are able to get things for their dorm and for their needs. And it helps if your child knows people at the school. It doesn't make them feel like they have to make brand new friends.
