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.

Someone who does not like the city.

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

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

First, parents and students should discuss the student's interests. Also, taking time to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the student will help determine the student's calibur and be able to translate that to the level of difficulty a prospective school may offer. Second, parents and students should identify the major and minors of interests. Within this conversation, students should tell parents about the possibilities of adding a major or minor. After this, they should search for schools that offer any combination of interests. Third, they should take time to find schools that have organizations they are intereseted in. Any school with an organization you may want to join is a bonus. If a school doesn't offer the organization you want but has your majors, then that student should create an organization to fit their needs. Last, when the student arrives at school it should be known that the opportunities to have a fulfilling college life is available, but it is up to the student to take advantage of them. If they don't take advantage of them, it is the student's fault and not the University's.

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

I think the worst things about my school are the housing facilities and the computers labs. The printers in the computer lab always seems to be needing service. The bathrooms (although largely the students' fault) could be cleaner. Also, some of the built-in appliances such as the heaters in the dorms could use an upgrade. Point blank, a lot of things in the dorms are old.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who depends on the kindness and generosity of their professors to give them good grades without actually working for them. A person who thinks last minute papers deserve A+'s. A person who does rushed work and hopes that the professor will be lenient towards their grade and show mercy in grading.

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

Make sure your daughter/son is sure that they feel comfortable with the surrounding areas. because if you come from a significantly different location (IE: rural moving into urban) it could be a hard transition.

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

I wish that I had known that most students go home on the weekend, resulting in boredom or studying on the weekends.

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

The fact that since its in an urban city setting, there tends to be more crime then schools located elsewhere.
