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

Okay, Shelby, I know that hte best thing in the world is to get out of high school as fast as you can so tha tyou can "get on" with your life. But listen, this IS your life! Livein the here and now, in the moment. Don't rush this next year of your life ecause if you do you will just keep on rushing to the next best thing, never stopping to enjoy where you are. To successfully transition into college you have to enjoy the moments you have now. Planning and looking ahead is not a bad thing, but if you start making the future your focus you are going to miss every moment that you encounter. Essentially, you are going to misss your college years. You can never get them back. Trust me, you are going to a great college. One where you will make life long friends. Appreciate the education you are getting because you will come across people who don't. Don't make their mentatily your mentaility. Finally, I know a part of you is scared. Fear cripples us from doing great things. In this next phase, do not walk by fear, but faith.

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

I wish I would have known that the program I was in was not accreditted at the time I was enrolled.

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

This school has an excellent environment. The staff and students are friendly, caring and campus never seemed to be a dangerous place. It was comforting to be surrounded by students who shared the same belief as yourself.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are determined, striving to succeed in all that they do, and they encourage others in order that those students around them may also accomplish great things in all that they do, both in and out of the classroom.

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

“Life may seem simple and easy now, but hold on because everything changes when you go to college.” This is the sentence I wish someone had told me as I finished my senior year and looked forward to starting college with excitement. College is a whole new world that is enjoyable but is definitely a balancing act that takes a lot of practice to master. Learn to manage your time now, so that when you have the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want, you will be able to prioritize and get the more important things accomplished first. It is good to be busy with classes, friends, and other activities, but do not forget to take some time for yourself. Sleep is also very important with such a busy lifestyle, so do not let yourself miss out on at least a little sleep every night. Finally, soak in every experience that happens at college because life only happens once and some of the best memories are made during your college years!

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

When talking about college, the point I bring up most about Lancaster Bible College is the wonderful community that is present among the students and staff. Everyone is so friendly and genuinely concerned for each other, and this is incredible because it forms one big family that is hard to find elsewhere. No matter where I go on campus, I always run into people that ask how I am doing and they are interested in what is going on in my life. It is this sense of openness and friendship that excites me about Lancaster Bible College.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Lancaster Bible College is best known for providing a sound education based on biblical principles and worldview. We are known as the second best Bible institute in America. Our classes are based on providing us the students with an understanding of how God and our spiritual life fit into the topics we discuss or overall our major.

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

College life is a lot different and more challeging from high school. There are two major things I would tell myself if I could go back in time and talk to myself. The first would be, always make sure you are accomplishing your work and doing your best at it. This is important because in high school you could possibly get away with missing an assignment and the teacher would not care but in college it is a completely different story. Teachers don't want excuses they want your homework done and for your best work. The other thing I would tell myself is, be open to new ideas and be social. In high school your days are basically set but its different in college you have to do stuff on your own and make new friends. Being social is a great way to interact with people and gain friendships that will last a life time. These are the two things I feel are the most important and would tell myself if I could go abck in time.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about our school is most likely the food. Overall it is decent but there are just some days where you feel like no matter what you pick food wise it could be a wrong choice.

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

Lancaster Bible College is an excellent experience for those who desire to understand the Bible and to challenge themselves spiritually as well as academically.

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

As a high school senior, I did not prepare myself enough for the college life. I can recall missing an astonishing amount of school days, coming late to my classes and leaving school early. I purposely took mediocre classes so I would not have to try too hard to pass. I definitely slacked off during my senior year, not realizing that just in a few short months I would be responsible for a completely different work load and many new challenges. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would encourage myself to first of all try harder academically. Instead of taking classes that were perhaps even bellow my level, I would challenge myself to take at least one challenging honors course in order to prepare for the vigorous work load that comes with college courses. College professors do not tolerate too many absences or tardiness I would motivate my high school self to try to never miss a single class. High school and college are two completely different worlds and there are many ways a high school student can prepare themselves for the drastic change.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who has no desire to know God and learn about His Word would not enjoy Lancaster Bible College. This school is in a very calm and rural area, so a student who loves the city life might not enjoy this college.

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

I would have placed a stronger emphasis on education, academic proficiency, and study. I would have read more books and engaged more in various subjects. Also, I would have placed a greater emphasis on computer knowlege and typing. I have been out of school for many years before I came to college but the transition went very well because of my great desire and passion for learning and education. I didn't care too much about college when I was in high school and I wish I would have been more concerned and focused. I would have told myself about the great need for college and the great blessing and impact it would have on my life, maturity, matriculation, and career.

What's unique about your campus?

Teachers are great and interact great with students. Academically proficient and competant. Strong focus on education, calling, and career placement.

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

Nothing really. This school meets all my expectations of a Bible College and I am very satisfied with it.

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

I am satisfied with the way I transitioned from my senior year in high school to college life. I would tell myself to enjoy all the free time because in college you have none of that, your life rotates around homework and work. I would definitly tell myself to enjoy all the free time I had on my hands.

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

Lancaster Bible College is a great school filled with caring professors, staff, administration, and students who want to see you grow spiritually and academically and they will help you do that.

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

I would tell myself to be more dedicated to my school work. I am good at getting things done, but lack some motivation. I would also tell myself to be prepared and not afraid of change. I was very afraid of coming to college, but it has been such a blessing and I absolutely love it here! The professors, administration, and students are all so caring and I have truly been blessed and blown away by them. I would tell myself that God is in control so I don't have to worry about change because he has it in his hands. I would tell myself not to procrastinate. I tend to procrastinate and while I always get things done on time, I normally have at least a couple things in a year that I wait until the last minute to do. I am very blessed to be able to attend Lancaster Bible College.

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

I don't really have any complaints about Lancaster Bible College.

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

Lancaster Bible College is a school where the faculty, and fellow students, want to see you achieve to your greatest potential; and they are willing to help you push through the bad time and will walk with you in good to see that you get to where you should be.

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

I would say: Study hard... Focus on your education and then worry about having fun... There is more to life than just having fun; although having fun is part of life... Love others and focus on them before you focus on yourself... Read your Bible like your life depends on it, because it honestly does... Stay humble yet confident... Find poeple that will help you get through the hard times and will be excited for you in the good... Think before you react or speak... Soak up as much as possible in the lectures and as you study... Do not rush into anything without thinking it through and consulting others... Be patient with others... Love learning... Do everything to the best of your ability... and when you feel like everything is caving in on you and there is no one to run to, run to God and He will help and comfort you.

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

I boast mostly in the community and the faculty that is present are LBC. The other students care for you and the faculty are always more than willing to open their homes up to you, talk with you, and be there for you. There are hardly any schools that are like this.

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

If I could go back to talk to myself as a high school senior, I would say the following: Jonathan, you're in for the experience of your life. You are going to love LBC. The teachers are great, the campus is the perfect fit for you, and most important, the people/students are incredible. The people that you will meet at LBC will change your life for the best. College is what you make of it though. Get involved early. Be involved with all that the campus has to offer. It's going to be a lot more challenging than high school though (as you already know). You've heard it a million times, but get into those good work habits early. Also, make sure you find the right balance between staying on campus, growing closer with your friends, and keeping in contact with your family. God, family, friends...keep these things your priorities and you'll do great.

What kind of person should attend this school?

It's a Christian school. So a Christian that is looking to grow and be challenged spiritually and academically would be a good fit here. Everyone feels accepted around here because the campus is just so friendly. So pretty much all personalities are enjoyed because it adds that much more to the campus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that is looking to party their way through school would not be a good fit here.

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

Stop trying to find yourself. Life is about becoming. Find good study partners and go the extra mile to be helpful to them. If you get something before they do, spend some time helping them to grasp the concept. Teaching someone else will vastly improve your understanding of the subject, more so than if you focus on learning it yourself. Besides, you never know when you will need a set of notes from someone who does a good job at it. Also, avoid bad company (hard drug addicts, party people - they will distract you and give you nothing in return - , extremely antisocial people).
