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

Always go with your first instinct. If a school doesn't feel right, don't go there. Also, bring your friends with you if you can. It always helps to have a support system if you are far away from home or even if you are close to home. Just do what you think is right in choosing the right college. Also, have fun. Meet new people that you can be friends with forever.

It is situated right next to an ExxonMobil plant. They are huge contributors to our engineering college. Also our faculty to student ratio allows professors to engage one-on-one with the students, allowing for unique research oppurtunities much like graduate school.

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

I would encourage students and their parents research the universities that they are thinking of attending: check on the student/teacher ratio, the graduation rate, the job acceptance rate, the research opportunities, the social environment of the college, alumnae's opinions, diversity (cultural, racial, sexual, and religious), and the overall ideaologies dominant in the community. Weigh these in the balance when comparing one colloge to another. As for making the most of one's college experience, I would reccomend that the student do their best to network starting that crucial freshman year. Network with societies and organizations, with academically minded friends and fraternities, the career center, tutors, advisors, and especially with faculty and staff that are influential in the areas of scholastic and financial benefits. And never, never forget to form a personal relationship with your college president, vice-president, and other executive members. This is a must.

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

In my opinion, the best place to start your college experience is close to home. That way you have the love and support of your friends and family. Then if you still wish to go away to school, you have and idea of what is required of you at college.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The financial aid department. I've made some mistakes when it comes to my GPA but I'm trying to fix that. Last semester I had a lot of family issues and wasn't able to pull the 2.5 required to keep my aid. I received a 2.0 and tried to appeal but was still denied even after explaining my situation.

Chose a college that fits you and your future, oh and your wallet. My motto that I live by is 'try everything once, twice if you like it.' Trying everthing once in your life allows you to live life from the experiences you make not from a rule book they give you.

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

Make sure that the student is well prepared for what is ahead of them. They are on their own and need to be responsible for their own work and actions. They should not be babied any longer and should never complain about all their work they have to do to other students, because everyone is in the same boat they are.

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

Most people my age have graduated college already and only ask me how my classes are going. My main comment to them is that because I am an older student, the professors tend to treat me with great respect.

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

College should be a great and memorable experience for every student. Some advise from me would be to make a list of all the colleges the student would like to consider and do some research on each one of them, writing down certain points about them. Some points could include costs, availability of student organizations, size, location, etc. The student should then eliminate a few of the choices to come down to about three or four final choices. The student should then apply for those colleges and, if accepted, begin looking for financial aid if needed. The last thing a college student wants to be focusing on and stressing about all year is how they are going to pay for the next semester. Living on campus is also something every student should consider because it helps one get more involved on campus because it is their home while in school.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Lamar is the jobs that students can get after graduating because of this school.
