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

When I left high school I was not prepared to go to a school that demanded as much from me as it did. I would have saved some money by immediately attending a junior college before transferring to a University. However, how could I have know that I was not prepared for a rigorous curiculum until I was put into that position. Regardless, the programs that are now established today for the transition from junior college to a University are much more solid than they have ever been. It's a great way to bridge the gap for students that are unsure of which direction they would like to initially take.

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

First off I would tell myself to get ready to work harder; the transition from high school to college really threw me off at the beginning. Then I'd tell myself to join the theater group, SODA (Society Of Dramatic Arts), here at LTU because I've made some great friends there. It's also helped me improve myself as a person and has made it easier for me to open up to social situations. I'd also tell myself who the friends are that I've met since coming to LTU so I could meet them all the sooner.

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

I wish I had known how to handle my finances better. It's difficult to learn how to manage loans and scholarships and still keep up with the school's workload.

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

I definitely brag most about the small class sizes here. I don't think I've ever been in a class, lecture or otherwise, that had more than 25 students in it.

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

This school contains a lot of extremely smart and high income students who may be intreverted; howeever 80% of the students here are involved organizations which creates a great social supporting network.

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

I would advise myself to finish my senior year at an engineering prep school so that my transition to a really demanding engineering private school would be easier. Also so that I would be on the same page as the other students who had great advantages over me like: having successful family members who are engineers, or having been to many engineering camps as a young child, or having many resources and higher incomes.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustating thing about my school is that it is best for those who have a naturally great learning ability and for those who don't need much detail. I have trouble following most professors which may be a personal problem, but I found that many students agree with me. I believe that I would have a good GPA if I were able to go to a engineering prep school like the successful, higher income, students here.

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

To you or your parents: You'll only succeed in a school where you're happy but truthfully, if you're willing to seek out what makes you happy that can happen almost anywhere. Also, dreams come true in baby steps so don't expect everything to fall into place at once. If the school you're interested in doesn't fit perfectly, try it out, and the adjust is to fit you. Leadership will get you extremely far in any profession. Most of all, best of luck and enjoy the ride!

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is hard working, open-minded and optimistic. Also someone who is concerned for their career after school and will do what it takes to get there.

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

How hard we're all willing to work in order to achieve our dreams.

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

What's unique about your campus?

Students always help each other and we are all know each other and we are friends.

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

The cost of the school. It is hard to be stable all the time with the financial aid I get.

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

In order to find the right colege for you, it doesnt matter if you know someone who is going there, or if your boyfriend or girlfriend is going there. You have to go to each college and experiance it first hand before you make that choice. Take advantage of the campus visit days and/or weekends. See what each college has to offer both academicly and socially. College is not all about studying and cracking down on your studies. You need to balance it with fun social things as well. Another important thing is the professors. When you visit a campus, ask to sit in on a class. This gives you a first hand look into how classes would be if you went there. Finally, never be afraid to ask questions. Ask as many questions as you can think of and that should help you decide if the school is right for you.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

They are best known to be a "hands on" school that focuses on preparing students for a career in engineering. They are not a research school where students learn how to learn like many of the large engineering schools are. They pride themselves on having small classes and a lot of one on one time with the professors.

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

I recommend starting at a local community college. They are much more affordable and it will help you decide if your chosen degree is something that you really want to pursue. In saying that, make sure that the courses that you enroll in transfer to the four year university that you are interested in.

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

They have issued laptops to every student but their infrastructure does not support the laptops. In the study areas there are not enough outlets so you have to plan ahead and conserve your battery.

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

When looking for an appropriate college for you or your student, it is very important to consider what degree that you or your student are persuing. Doing a lot of research will present to you the school with the most appropriate program in your or your students prospective field of study. Then consider cost, financial aid, distance from home, and living conditions. I recommend that freshman or new transfer students spend at least one semester in student housing. This will help to instil a student network for friends, study groups, and advice from students who have experience with the school. Also, school is going to cost more than just tuition and food plans; adjust your financial status to sustain this extra amount. Consider trips home, money for transportation to and from grocery stores and off campus forms of entertainment. Students do need a break once in a while. Also, try to involve yourself with the school through clubs, sports, or any other kind of extracurricular means. Most of all, approach college with an open mind and a positive outlook. This will help to give you the most out of your college experience.

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

Our school gives out a lot of work and truly challenges you. If you are thinking about Lawrence Tech for a school that you can slack off and still pass, do not go here. I work very hard during the week so that I have some free time on the weekends. Most often I end up still doing work on the weekends though.

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

The class sizes are very small and you get a very personal experience with your professors. In turn, they tend to care a lot more about your experience and are more apt to helping you out to the maximum of their abilities.

Small camups, that lacks a sence of community, but has a strong academic backing.
