When choosing a college, college visits are very important. It is essential to visit the campus and learn about the programs offered and the enviornment surrounding the campus. The enviornment can tell a significant amount about the campus and how comfortable the student will feel attending the campus. Also, look at the programs that are offered and how these will benefit you in the passions you have for your future. When you make the decison in confidence, you will know you have chosen the right college for you. Then, when attending the college, you can make the most of your experience. Although campus life may distract you, it is important to stay focused and disciplined in your class work. By working hard, you will be getting the most of your choice of college, you will feel passionate about school, and hopefully the enviornment will lead to meeting new people who can encourage you and grow with you. College is a wonderful time of learning, personal growth, and preparation for the future. Hopefully whichever college you choose will encourage these things, and you can make the most of your college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the classes at Kent State. I have only had a few classes and professors in which I have disliked. Otherwise, the professors are extremely helpful, always available to offer advice and help with difficult classwork. They are passionate about the topics they teach, which leads to an increase in the passion for the class. Also, many technological devices are used to help aid learning, making it easier to learn the materical. Overall, I thouroughly enjoy attending Kent State and I feel I am already well prepared to continue in my major.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about Kent State Universtiy is the lack of knowledge some of the advisors have. It has been hard for me to receive the same answer from different advisors, so I have had to search and develop information on my own which is sometimes challenging when scheduling classes.

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

Looking back on my college experience there are a few things I would tell parents and students about finding the right college. As a recent college graduate I would tell them to take a deep breath and enjoy their experience, because it will be over before they know it. In order to do this, parents and students must make sure that they research each college, the internal and external environments and the opportunities within the program they are pursuing. Having the best college experience is about taking advantage of the opportunities within your college and outside the college within the community.

The classroom atmosphere is big enough yet unique enough to wear each student knows the teacher and they professors can relate and want to get to know their students.

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

You have to figure out want you need and want out of a school and nobody else.

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

That everyone is very laid-back, alwayswilling to lend a helping hands. The university is really involved during the sporting season. The teachers are willing to work with you and lots of them are grad students and easily indentify with the undergrads they teach.

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

Visit a college you are NOT interested in attending first before you visit the college you have a desire to attend. You will then be able to make better and more objective comparisons between the colleges. Look into the food plans and food courts, the "party" style, the availability of drugstores, grocery stores and jobs, used book stores, internet access, and finally how well the college structures student behavior.

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

The advice I would give to parents/ student about finding the right college is to do research!! Word of mouth is a wonderful thing that ultimately your decision has to be based upon your individual thoughts. Make sure you visit the college and take tours. Set up an appointment with an advisor with appropriate department of your major of interest. Sometimes what you thought might me a good fit for you may not turn out to be the case at all. When you arrive at college have a social life but make sure that is not the majority of your focus. You and your parents are not paying money for a social life. Academics must come first but they should not be everything. Take a break every once in a while when your work is complete. A fresh and relaxed mind will help you be even more responsible and successful in the classroom.

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

the size of the school. It was big enough so that you felt like you were attending a university but small enough that teachers and students could have individual relationships

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

The worst thing about my school is the lack of social scenery surrounding campus. You must go to neigboring cities in order to go out and have a fun time

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

I would tell a student or parent that to find the right college it is very important to visit the college and even sit in on classes to get a feel for what that school is like. There are many important things about college not only studying and class but friends and building lasting relationships.

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

I brag mostly about the sense of community I share with my fellow musical theatre students. I also brag about the individual attention from all the staff and faculty. The faculty really care what their students have to say and care about making their students the best not only performers but people they can be.

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

Chose a school that has a good prgrom for your child. If your child is not exactly sure what he wants to do, then send them to a school that has a variety of classes they can take to figure out what they want to do. The most important thing is chosing a school that is right for your child. Find a school that they feel comfortable when visiting and has a strong program for whatever carrer your child wants to enter. College is not all about having fun, work needs to be done as well. While many college students today tend to be a lot more social and not focus on school work, to get a good job and suceed later in life, they need to get in to a good accredited program.

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

The fact that this school offers so much is what makes it unique. It is like a farm school for other big schools. It is a good start to get you going in the right direction, however, there are only a few solid programs that are good to get a degreee in. They also offer a varitey of extra curricular activites that make this school unique and diverse. There are plenty of activites to be involved in to meet people and make good friends.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is open minded about everything. Someone who is willing to be open to others ideas and opinions. This school is very liberal and has very many opiniated people who are very stubborn. This school is not too strong on academics but does have some good progrmas that are well respected. Another type of person who could go here is someone who is not sure what they want to do with their life yet. This school offers a varitey of classes that could give someone a good idea of what they want to do.

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

Research your prospective college, make sure it has a good program for your field of study. Research the financial aid at your college to find out what their financial aid package consists of. Find out what the job situation is on and off campus. How is the housing situation if you are going to be living on or off campus. How accessable is the campus if you are commuting, ie parking. Is there a good food plan. How new are the facilities, how many computers does the school have and is there good avaliability to use them. What kind of educational value will you get for your money at this school, and how marketable will you be after graduation.
