Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

A private university with most of it's emphasis on diversity and the getting along of different peoples and also emphasizing a small classroom setting.

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

The fact that this school is of a certain religious denomination and therefore practices certain religious beliefs.

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

Research different places, take the student population into consideration as well as the academic programs that are offered, and ways that the campus strives to be safe. While attending school, staying on top of one's work is KEY. As always, procrastination only makes a situation more difficult in the end. I believe one of the important things you need to really succeed in college is between 1-3 close friends that will help you do two things: 1. help you do well in school (help motivate you) & 2. know when it's the right time to have some fun. It's the type of people you hang around that will influence you. I could have done a way better job at finding that kind of friend. Though I enjoyed the company of the friends I did make, I feel that one friend in particular held me down a little. It's normal to feel down at times and happy other times. However, to always look at the negative side of things and/or to always complain, can really rub off and affect you. Such an attitude isn't going to help anyone. Choose wisely and have common sense!

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

Make sure that the parents and the student agree to what college/university they want to attend. Find whether the person prefers a liberal or conservative school becuase there is a big difference between the two.

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

When it comes to looking for a college to attend, be sure to consider the fact that the student will be spending the next four years of his/her life there. Expense is not something to neglect, therefore situating the financial aid and family contribution will be enough to cover tuition as well as supporting the student during the academic year. You must not forget the programs reputation. For whichever major the student picks, look at the success rate during the course and after graduation (for job placement purposes). Ensure that the student and the parents are happy with the choices made, thus leading to a great outlook on the students college career.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is seeking a healthy learning environment, not only for academic purposes, but also for those who want spiritual guidance. La Sierra can be a place to find yourself in a way one may never have thought to be found. This school is for someone who enjoys the solitude and quite times and have just as much as the fun.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you're someone who doesn't participate in religious events or just simply not open to them, you should probably not come to La Sierra. If you don't like a small school and would prefer to be in a larger fast paced environemt then LSU is not for you.

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

What I have learned after two years is that you should know what topic you want to or are interested in studying. Really look to see if that school has your major and also look to see if the school has a good environment. It makes things alot easier on a student if they feel welcomed and comfortable at their school. Really get involved in school, such as clubs or sports. It helps to make friends and knowing people is a great thing in college.

What's unique about your campus?

There are many biology professors that care about their students and are willing to better their education. They do everything possible to help students pass with the highest grade. There are also some administration workers that go out of their way to help a student get orgainzed once admitted.

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?

The friendliness of staff, professors, and workers.

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

The amount of money that they wouldn't provide after the first year.

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.
