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

Visit the schools you want to go to and spend a day there getting a feel for the place, the people, the teachers and the buildings. The environment is a big part of feeling comfortable at a school for me. A liberal arts school is really worth it to be able to have a broad knowledge of life as well as a major in a specific field. Dorming is a good thing, atleast for a couple years.

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

The classes are super small and you interact directly with professor who are very willing to share their knowledge. The classes are very laid back along with the whole feel of the school. The spiritual life on campus is great and there is a lot of support given to all the students.

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

The right college and experience truly depends on who you are. No matter what others might mention about the school, it all depends on what you yourself are looking for. Perhaps what intrigues you is the social activities they offer every friday night, or maybe the special program orientated majors they have. Whatever it may be, the key success to the right college is your needs and wants. Many of the students I have talked to agree that when making your final decision, make sure you visit and stay at the campus. Experience it first hand and don't settle on other people's words and advice. Once you decide on that dream college, live it up! Involve yourself at orientation and get to know your fellow classmates. Go join that pre-professional club! It'll only reap tons of benefits for you! Involve yourself in your school, it'll only bring positive outcomes during your four years. Involvement leads to your enjoyment and love for the school. But don't let extracurriculars take up all your time! Remember, academics first.

What's unique about your campus?

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

During the application process, college may appear synonymous to stress, competition, deadlines, and lack of sleep. Perhaps the nervousness of hoping for acceptance into our dream schools creates such an intimidating picture, but college is more than academics. No matter how rigorous a college program is, if the professors, classes, and atmosphere do nothing to help us, students, transition into a conscious development of where we are and how we want to live our lives, then our undergraduate experience will be incomplete and unsatisfactory. Academics are important, not so that we can regurgitate lectured information, but so that we can be inspired to learn about our world, its different perspectives, what our past teaches us; and most importantly, so that we can apply research and opinions in a meaningful way to our present. College is a transition, so we should look past general appearance and reputation. Each one of us enters college at different levels of experience and growth. We must remember that we are not made for a college?s success. Colleges are made for our success. In the end, it is a simple question of how well the university?s graduation robes will be tailored to fit us.

this school is good for the small classroom feel and for making close friendships, but could do a better job at providing more ways for students to feel financially at ease.

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

Do as much research as neccessary before making up your mind on which college to attend, and once in school, surround yourself with positive people; people that you know will not make you slack off throughout the school year, people that will encourage you to do your best; usually, these kind of people are also fun loving and can balance out both fun and work. If neccessary, find a part time job (on campus)!

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

Enjoy the experience. Most people will actually see this as the biggest stress of their lives, when in fact it's just a new beginning of the first taste of freedom. Choosing a place that can help you achieve your goals is one thing, and i fullly think that there are many schools that can fill those requirements, but there's also all the extras that you should keep in mind when it comes to choosing a college. Instead of being stressed out, you should see it as all these different schools are working really hard to get you to come to their school...enjoy the pampering!

What's unique about your campus?

The diversity, there is just so much at La Sierra that its amazing. Another thing that I really enjoy is the Christian environment here.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you really don't like rules, and are willing to break them for the sake of your own fun, well either be reall discreet, or don't come, because the rules will be enforced. Another thing is that La Sierra is a Christian school, and so if you have a problem with Christianity, then there's going to be a problem at La Sierra.

La Sierra University is a very diverse, educational and fun enviranment were everyone no matter race or religion can come to gether and make a difference in the world.

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

think about the environment that you want to be in, what your main focus will be when you go to college and whether or not you want to go far from home. dont make your decision based off of where your parents went to school, or how much the school cost, where you friends will be attending or anything like that because in the end it will be you that has to spend 4-6 years at this school: not your parents or your friends.

What's unique about your campus?

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

Conduct extensive research on the school, in terms of the school tradiation/history, financial aid, housing and whether the graduates feel as though their education in that school actually helped them once they were out in the real world. In terms of making the most out of a college experience, do not miss any orientation. Also, try to live on campus, at least for the first few semesters/quarters so that you can get to know more people & find out what kind of people will eventually be your friends. It's so hard knowing people when you live off-capus since you don't study with them or hang out with them once classes let out. Don't be afraid to ask for help if you're stuggling academically; most schools have tutoring centers where the tutors are students your age who've taken the class so they know how to help you. Don't let your advisor make all the decision for you: look up classes you need to graduate rather than relying on your advisor. Take advantages of your summers - look for internships and keep yourself busy since what you do in the summer counts after graduation.

What's unique about your campus?

We are ranked as one of the most diverse campuses in Southern California - everyone's represented here: White, Black, Latino/Latina, Asian, International Students etc.

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

I wish someone had told me how expensive this school was...these past few years have been so financially challenging
