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

Students, choose a college that is comfortable to you and not just because it pleases your parents. If you are not happy with the school your academic standing will probably suffer.

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

Do your research beofre committing to a college. Visit the campus, talk to the students about how they feel about their university. Compare caosts from surrounding schools, and make sure you get the most value for your money. Don't forget to aplly for financial aid and scholarships--many colleges have lists pages long of scholarships that are given away every semester!

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

The lack of school spirit. The students only really get behind the sports teams that are consistently winning. Many students do not follow many of the sports, such as baseball, softball, etc.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are innovative, creative, very determined, and never give up on solving a design problem no matter what obstacles are in our way.

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

There is no harm in research. Many students I talked to went on tours to a variety of college campuses. If you know what you would like to do, then it narrows down your search tremendously. You have to find what's right for you. The best thing to do is go and get information. The more you know, the more informed you can be and can make a more educated based decision. I find it disappointing when people choose a college campus because it looks pretty or it feels right. This is only part of your experience. The real reason you are in college is to learn and take advantage of every academic opportunity that comes your way. Your college experience is what you make of it regardless of where you choose to go. To make the most out of your college experience you must work hard and know self disipline. You must make sacrifices, but still have fun a long the way. Just know everyday you slack off, someone is going to come up and pass you. You must be on your game at all times. It's a balancing act and only you can to master it.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about going to school is the conflict of ideas. In classrooms, working with groups, meeting new people, one is exposed to a variety of backgrounds and methodologies. All of these combined shapes a person everyday to be ready for their own future. Without this interactivity I feel it would be extremely difficult to be ready and successful to go out and grow as a person once you started to establish a career.

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

When choosing a college be sure to chose one that suits you and your interestes. Find one with an amazing staff that will be willing to see you as an individual and help you sort out your personal problems. If you have trouble with large classroom, choose a small, more personal school. BE INVOLVED! Join a club or an organization. Get out there and meet new people! They will make your life so much easier!

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

I wish I would have known how windy and cold it is. That way I could bring warmer clothes!

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates and I have gotten to be very close. Being in the Nursing program with only 100 other students has helped us all to bond very well. We help eachother study and are very encouraging with the grades each of us receive. We have fun together but always put school first because we realize how important gaining knowledge for our profession is.

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

The advice I would give is to just follow your own desires and not worry about impressing anyone else. The choice you make is an important one that you need to think about seriously. You need to be excited when you think about the school you choose and not dreading it. Every school has great things to offer, you need to find the one that best suites you, your lifestyle, and your career goals.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Kent State University is best known for it's variety of very good schools. We have such a variety of great majors which have wonderful reputations. We are also known for being liberal but located in a small town that is very friendly community.

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

To find the right school for you, you must seek out many different schools. Take the time to go on tours and see what is out there. You may be suprised at the choices you have, and you also may be suprised that the school you thought you wanted to go to isn't really the best one out there for you. Ask as many questions as you feel necessary, because there is no such thing as a bad question. Once you believe you have chosen the right school for you, make sure to be outgoing and try to meet as many people as you can. When you know more people, it is easier to make the most of your college experience. It is also important to get involved at your college. Being a part of a group is a very gratifying experience, and it also gives you different opportunities during the day and evening. College is an experience that you can make or break. It is up to you whether or not you have a good colege experience, so enjoy it because it shapes your future.

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

The worst thing about my school is the fact that it is quite large. With a large school, you don't have the opportunity for many small classes and you also have less of a chance to meet people.

What's unique about your campus?

Very good way to meet new people, fun environment. It is very nice also because there are plenty of spaces to study which helps you get your work done when you don't really want to. Nice and quiet for everyone, but fun when you need it to be.

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

The Student and Parents really need to go visit a wide variety of schools. Do some research and narrow it down the schools you really want to go see. If you know what you want to study then research the top schools for your field of study. Some students have a hard time being far from home so if that's a problem it needs to be considered. Although being one of those students I would recommend being close enough to get home but far enough that you don't depend too much on going home. The Student needs to find their place at school and enjoy the experience!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Really any kind of Student would fit in here. It's such a big school that you will find someone or a group of people to settle into and make long lasting friendships.

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

As far as finding the right college, go with what you feel is best and fits you. If you feel right when you take a visit and it has a great program for what ever you chose to major in, go for it! By making the most of your college experience, get out there and join school clubs and become involed. This is a great way to meet new friends. Also go out with some friends and explore the area around your campus. You never know what kind of new places you can find to go eat or hang out at. One more piece of advice, do not overload your class schedule too much, make sure you leave some room for relaxation and fun.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is not open to experiencing and leaning new things.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

How windy it gets. When it rains sometimes you can not use an umbrella because it will blow away.

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

I would tell them to not rush. There are so many different types of schools out there. Go on as many college visits as you can and when you go, go during a regular school day. This lets you get the feel of how the school really is. Try not to base your decision on how much the school costs. There are many ways to pay for school. Once you find the school you like, go out and try to get involved. Most schools have many programs, so find the one that interests you. Once you do that the friends will just naturally come. If you are having trouble at first, give it time! I know many people that gave it one semester or a year and decided to go home. Believe me it gets better. It really is hard to adjust for most people, but by your second year you usually know where you fit in.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone, especially art students!
