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

My parents did not attend college, but always had set "college" as a goal for me since childhood. I guessed their reason was so that I could have a better life than them, perhaps having greater earning potential or a wider array of job opportunities. However, having experienced college myself, I have learned that the college experience has helped me attain far more than financial security. These things cannot be quantified in dollars and cents, but have added a richness to life that I value beyond money. The greatest experience for me has been meeting professors and classmates from all over the country and world. I have learned so much in these interactions. The knowledge, insights, and stories that they each bring have broadened my understanding of the world, enabling me to imagine and think things that I would never have imagined or thought before. I have thoroughly enjoyed classes where discussion and critical thinking is encouraged. There is freedom to represent my own points of view, which encourages me to continue to shape the ideas that I already have within me. The college experience has helped me to become more of who I was meant to be.

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

As a student in high school, I always had in mind to attend a big university and have an everlasting experience but as time passed I realized it wasnt where you start but where you finish and the effort you put into it. Therefore, I decided to attend a Community College near home, not only were classes are cheaper but they were also easier and considering I had house payments and bills on my sholder I knew it was well worth it. I am currently transferring to big universtiy as I always wished (Universtiy of Houston) and I can say I did the most smart thing any high school graduate could possibly do. Ive learned not only to manage my time wisely but how to be more responsible with procrastination, the value of education and how lucky we are to be in this country were in schools you dont have to pay for anything until we get to college.

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

the most important thing i can say about my college experience so far is that it has made me grow up. i never lived on my own before this, i didnt know how to cook before this, and i didnt know how to wash clothes. So i can say that college has matured me. College has been a valuable for me to attend because im at one of the top nursing schools in Oklahoma and when i graduate i will be able to find a good job making anough money for me to live comfortably.

the worst thing about Langston University is there is not enough extracurricular activities for students to do outside of school. If u are not part of a sorority or fraternity is really nothing for you to do outside of homework and going to class.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

the kind of person i think shouldnt attend this school is a person that does not like to be invovled. thats the only way you will enjoy yuorself at Langston is if u get involved with the few activities they do have on campus. Although Langston does not have much activities to do, they do have alot of clubs to join.

In attending Langston University I have learned how to stand on my two feet, and to always take care of my responsibilities. My first year I struggled with a financial problems, but now as a second year college student I have learned to manage my money better and make sure I keep my priorites straight. I have became more independent , hard working , and determined more than ever attending Langston University. I have learned many things attending Langston which I feel is just one piece to my learning puzzle,and has made it a very valuable lesson to attend.

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

I have gotten a good education, thus far. I have learned to build relationships, network. I've made life long friends. I am learning how to compromise. All of these have been valuable to me because Langston University is a great school, once you cut out all the negativity that surrounds the name. It's a great HBCU and I would have maybe never learned all that I have.

Make sure you are disciplined. College life is a fun, memorable experience, however, it is easy to get caught up in all the "fun" and neglect the real reason you are there, to get an education. There are no parents there to force you to get up and go to class, no one to give you consequences for negative behavior. It is up to you. You will be the first in your family to finish college. Be proud and make the most of it. This is a time for you to learn and grow. Utilize all of the resources available to you. There is a lot of knowledge and wisdom within those college doors, soak it up like a sponge. Knowledge is power and this is the place for you to gain that knowledge. Take advantage of the opportunities that are given to you. I know that you can thrive and be a successful individual.

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

I feel that the location was not the best. The school was kind of in the middle of nowhere. It was difficult if you didnt have a car.
