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

Lawrence Tech is small but growing. The rec facility is great but no pool. Housing is appartment style. It is a private school so be ready to pay. The architecture program is difficult but in a good way. Campus is clean. Not easy to walk or bike for off-campus errands.

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

Don't count on any funds you don't already have in your accounts. Save early. If you know what you want to do go to the school that has made a name for itself in that field. go to the cheasy freshmen pre-semester events at the very least it is something to make fun of with other students as an ice breaker. Try have conversations with everyone students (not just your friends) faculty (not just your own) Studnet services staff (they can help you or tell you where to get it) and even matenence/janitorial staff just say hi everyonce in a while get to know them and you wont be the one with the broken whatever all semester and you may just learn a few campus secrets that can save you time and money. Keep an eye on your spending. Most importantly budget your time school, work, play, excercise, YOU time, homework. Jump at opportunities. Have fun it'll be the best time of your life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Slackers unless they can spend 6-7 years on their degree Transfers may have credit recognition issues Students with undecided majors

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

Start early and even if you have found a school that "works" for you don't stop there. Always travel to the school before hand and be sure that you like the area surrounding the school as well as the school itself because it will effect the experience you have. Also don't be afraid to apply to several different schools; it is always better to have to make a choice than not to have one.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about our school is our reputation. Lawrence Tech gradutes are the highest choosen workers in the Architecture field in Michigan. However, you must create your own reputation within the school to get yourself to the level that previous graduates attain. It is extremely hard for students to do well in this school; that is why we are so small. But the graduates that this school creates are exactly what firms want: hardworking and environmently conscience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

To do well in this school you must be willing to work long hours, sleep at your work station, and even run yourself a ground for your projects. The work is never done here and if you don't want that for your life then turn away. Any architecture school is going to be the same way because that is what the field is going to be like but the difference here is that you are going to have to have a job while going to school here. Tuition alone is 30,000 a year. So good luck.

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

Make sure you look at all your choices, I decided too early and got into a field that I ended up disliking. I was lucky LTU had another field that has been exactly right for me. I regret not looking at other schools and other majors more. Also if you can live on campus, do so. It will make your social life much better. Get involved, you get 4 years to make friends and learn, start as early as possible. There are many campus organizations, join as many as possible (depending on how much free time you have).

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

small and expensive, to keep financial aid, I need to do well which causes stress.

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

I would advise students to visit the college and really talk to the students and get an understanding of how things work on campus, what is expected from students, and see the type of work these students are doing to see if this is what they really want to do. They should visit the campus in the beginning of the semester and closer to finals. This would give any prospective student the insight they would need in making the right decision. Parents need to really talk to the financial aid counselors and get a feel for what will be expected from them so tuition payments can be made on time and so they can prepare the forms in a timely manner. Most of all, any student searching for a college needs to visit the campus and interact with the current students.

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

It is overpriced. I feel like I havnt learned much because there is so much work to do you dont have the time to take it all in.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any person that values sleep and a personal life.

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

It's a somewhat expensive place that's great for engineering and architecture students, but others may feel left in the cold by the myriad of new programs being developed that are not yet completed.

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

Don't let your worries about getting into your perfect college get you down. Though a better college may entail some educational benefits, a truly bright individual with fresh ideas (and most of us are, we just don't know it) has the potential to be successful wherever they go. It is all too easy to become a victim of stress and burnout. Pace yourself and remember that there is more to life than just going to school and having a career. Take a walk outside. Smell the roses. For God's sake, read a book for fun once in a while. Above all, think. All of this education that we pay so much for and invest so much time in will have no effect whatsoever if we don't take the time to think, analyze, and question.

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

Small class sizes, professors really care, practical learning experiences (in some cases)

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

The best way to find the right college is to do your research. First, find out what schools have the degree(s) you are interested in. Next, take time to research the schools and talk to people who may have gone there. If possible, visiting the school is best. Many schools have some sort of visit day and offer tours, take advantage of these. You can also visit a school's website, which can give you a good idea about the school. A nice, helpful, organized website is a good sign. Consider the size of the school and average class sizes. Smaller classes can make personal communication with a professor a lot easier. To make the most of your college experience, you need to get involved with activites that interest you. (Homework should come first!) Fraternities could be an option for you, but pick one that actually helps the community, instead of one that spends dues money on beer. After all, you do go to college to get a better education, so don't just pay money to go to a never-ending party. Most importantly, enjoy what you are studying!

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

Lots of foreign students. Some communication issues.

Amazing balance of Theory and Practice. Top of class instructors, small class sizes, very friendly and helpful faculty. Amazing student project and group opertunities.

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

Look for a college that fits your personality and study style. Little is accomplished parting all the time and you will burn out if you are in classes our of your league when no help is present. Dont let the size of a university fool you pay close attention to class sizes and resources. Look for a well rounded university while studing liturature may seem pointless while persuing engineering the skills you learn subconsiously are priceless. Also make sure that your get practical experiance while in school. Graduation is too late to learn work ethic and how your job works in the real world. Once at college dont become a hermit, dont bury your head in your books learn to be social. With those skills you can be a great business person. Also on the flip side dont party the whole time to get your dream job you have to graduate first.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Closed Minded and unwilling to work with others. Followers and slackers.

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

You have to visit the campus. That is very important to see what it is like and then you can ask students that you see what they think of it. I love giving students advise on what professors they should take and other helpful information.

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

It costs a arm and a leg and the price keeps coming. I wish I would have gone to a community college and then transfered the credits to Lawrence Tech.

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

Go where you heart takes you. Never base your decisions on what others think. Never go based on a significant other. Don't go where they give you the most money, go where you think you will like the most. Be prepared to move out of your comfort zone (like far from home instead of close to home).

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

Cost, gender percentages (more guys thans girls etc).
