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

Try to figure out what you want to do after college. Then pick a college based on what you want to do. Don't just pick a college because thats where everyone goes or the fact that it's a good party school. I picked nursing so looked at colleges that were known for nursing. But with some of those colleges that I applied to, acceptance into the nursing school wasn't guaranteed. This really narrowed my options. Luckily, for me, it all worked out and I'm happy where I am.

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

The area my school is in is not the safest area of the city. It is sometimes scary walking to the subway when the shuttles are really behind schedule.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of parking spots. When you can't get a spot in a parking lot, there is not alot of on-street parking that won't result in a parking ticket.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very creative and artistic. They enjoy what they do and are very proud of their work for the most part. They are very friendly and helpful.

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

My advice to parents and students would be to choose a school based on the vine you get from the campus and on the professors. Friends will always be there, however a professor can really make opr break a course. So, visit alot of different campuses and really try to get a feel for the people and environment. If you feel comfortable and at home than it is probably the right school for you. Also, be independent. Do not choose the local college just because your friends from high school are going there. Go out on your own and see the world, it is the best way to be prepared for life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who enjoys city life and small class sizes. If you want to have close relationships with your professors and friends it is perfect for you. However it is very expencive so that must be taken intyo consideration.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It is best known for being a rather small but respected school that turns capable adults out into the world. It is not revered for certain sports or academic prestige but it is a good school that offers its students a well rounded education and the ability to intern in the city.

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

Just try to find a school that you feel comfortable at, you are going to be living there for four years you need to be able to picture the next four years of your life at that school, otherwise it isn't the school for you. Being in college isn't all about academics, you cant spend all your time studying and doing school work although it should be a high priority! Get out and do things too!

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

Probably the proximity to center city Philadelphia, it is very easy to get into the city and into the surrounding suburbs as well.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

La Salle University is best know for its rigorous academic curriculum and its ties to the surrounding Philadelphia area. Students who attend La Salle are encouraged to participate in many of its clubs and organizations, many of which participate in community service events.

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

La Salle University is a small intimiate school that allows students to have small class sizes. Professors are very interested in the success of the students and always make themselves available to help them along their way.

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

There are three pieces of advice that I would offer to parents or students about finding the right college. Some of the most important factors that can influence someones decision is their ability to pay for the institution that they would like to attend, its location relative to the student's home, and the programs and activities that the college has to offer. If a student would like to complete the program at any given institution, they should have the means to pay for it. Colleges are extremely expensive and being able to pay for tuition, room and board, and books and other expenses should be considered before accepting the offer to the school. Otherwise, there is the danger that they will not be able to pay for it later on down the line. If the student would like to come home during school breaks or even more frequently, they should be sure to have convenient transportation home. Schools that are not in big cities are harder to travel back and forth to. Finally, the student should consider programs that the school offers for career placement and clubs and organizations. Involvemnt in organizations will definitely impact the students social experience.

Basketball, Soccer, Greek Life, Clubs for everything you can think of. We are a big nursing school and buisness school but the communication department and psychology department are excellent.

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

I would tell parents and students to research the school that have the study you are interested in. After researching those colleges narrow them down to about 5-10 colleges that by figureing out if you want to live on campus, what kind of setting you like for example city, rural, suburb. Then visit those colleges to see if you like the food because that is a big deciding facotr since you will be eatting there for the next four years of your life, then close off campus food areas when you get tired of campus food, what the dorm rooms look like, how big the college campus is, the average class size, and possibly the sport you to play if you are interested. After that students should sit down and talk to their parents about the financial situation and what kind of route they are taking whether its loans, or they are paying for it out of poket. Then once you recieve the acceptance letters from your schools see which school gives you a bigger financial aid package and fits all your criteria for "school that is for you" and then you the college of your dreams.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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

When you visit schools, whichever school you immediately feel most at home, and most comfortable at is most likely to be the school for you. Get involved and try to become good friends with the people in your major because they will be the people who will pull you through the next four years, especially knowing that you are all in this together. Find a balance between schoolwork and going out because once you find that balance you will be able to have both a high gpa, and have an amazing time with your friends and make memories that you will never forget.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who does not want to be in an urban setting

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

At this point, the parents and students alike are probably overwhelmed with advice on how to go about choosing the right college. My guidance is to ignore it all. It's important to choose a school based on your own stipulations, as too many find out the hard way. College can be a much more satisfying experience knowing that you chose where you spent the most important years of your life.

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

The shuttle system! It's supposed to be at each stop every 15 minutes, but it's been known to take over 30 minutes or more.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone lookins for a small, private college in Philadelphia.

Get involved with on campus clubs, sports and other activities. This will help you meet so many new people. Parents always try to get as much financial aid as possible, because it is possible.

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

In finding the right colege I believe that it is important to visit the college to see the school's surroundings. I also would suggest to apply for a school that is highly rank in what ever field an applicant is appyng for. In addition, I suggest reviewing the requirements of the school as well as the standards of the school sush as GPA, the gradutaion rate, diversity, etc is important. Finding the right school also invovles making sure the school is affordable and to look into financing options. Appling for FASFA is important so that the applicant is able to receive as much financial aid as possible. Paying attention to deadlines is important such as FASFA and application deadlines. Joining activites and interacting with others is also an important tool in school. Lastly, interacting with teachers is also important as well as asking questions because they are there to help throughout the college experience.
