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

Look for the college that best fits you. Don't let your parents, relatives, friends tell you where to go or what to study. Every college is different, each best in its own way, so when you look for the college you want to attend fr 2 years or more look for the college that you would like to attend, not the one everyone else wants to attend.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Not all the professors are friendly.

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

The advice that I would give students about finding the right college would be class size. It all depends on how you learn, if you can learn without one on one contact, you can go to a big univeristy. But if you enjoy that one on one contact, pick a smaller school. It's always important to get all the help you can in college because it is totally different then high school. Making the most out of college is impoartant. I was always the shy one and was a transfer student, so I was in a room with 5 strangers, who became my best friends!! You really have to let your gaurd down when going to college so you will fit in and really be happy where you end up. I believe that is the most important part of a college experience is friends, because without them you will not have all the support needed for an amazing college experience.

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

The area because there is not a big area for that much fun off campus, unless you go across the border.

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

Find a college that suits your expected experience. When you think of going to college or sending your child to college, what do you picture it as being like, the campus, the courses and community? Is it where you want to learn to know and become part of the social community of? Is it financially feasible? Do you know people already going to that college or university or do you look forward to making new friends? Do you want a classroom filled with hundreds of students or a handfull? What kind of weather do you prefer to live in? How far from home are you willing to be? Consider career interests and different majors and programs offered by different schools. Look forward to a brand new experience that can be as confusing as you let it, but know also that no matter how crazy things may seem, many have been there before you, and many have suceeded. The opportunity is there, the choices are yours to make. Don't expect everything to always go flawlessly, and never stress over the smallest things. Always buy required course books, and try to buy offline cause bookstores usually aren't cheap! Good Luck!

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

Small campus size, great nursing and criminal justice programs, fisheries and wilflife, good hockey team, and good size that's not too big.

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

The best advice for students looking for the right college is to go ad visit the college first. If you know someone on campus that is the best way to find out about the school. Tours of campus don't always point out the best parts, such as, you don't have to clean the bathroom if it is a community bathroom. While you are visiting the campus ask questions and make sure your needs will be met. Also, you have to make the college experience, the college won't do it for you. Go out and meet people, if there are icebreakers offered go to them and meet people. College is not fun if you don't have friends you can hang out, study, and even get food with. Above all, make the college work for you. You are paying them so make sure you get your money out of the experience. Inlist the services which they provide when you need them and have a good time.

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

I would make sure parents look into the program their child would like to study is offered. Also, I would look into the job acceptance rate after graduation from that college. This is to guarantee the student is getting a good education and they have a good job waiting when they're done. Parents and students should be aware of the food being offered. Its always nice for parents to send healthy or goody boxes of food to a college student. Sometimes college doesn't offer the best food. Generally, colleges have extra-curricular activities and such so that's really nothing to be worried about. Try to make your dorm/apartment comfortable. It makes it feel a little more like home and a little less like jail.

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

I wish I had known just how small the school was. Also, I wish I had known the extent of the food variety (there isn't much).

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

Don't choose it based on friends or a girlfriend. Pick it because it's the right fit for you, and because it has a program that you want. Choosing a college based on factors other than academics can be a bad move in the end. No matter what college you go to, you're bound to meet at least some people with similar interests, and many who will become friends for life. Keep an open mind about your school and the people there.

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

It's very small. Due to this activities can be limited at times.

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

Big dorm rooms, free sporting events, Canada within sight.
