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

Finding the right college is really just about finding where the student is comfortable, and where the student can really see themselves becoming a part of a community. Everything about the school should be taken into account, class size, campus size, dorms, food, cost, academics, social activities, facilities, the surrounding area, etc. In order to get the most out of the college experience, the student has to be able to know where to go to get resources, whether it be for homework, a job, or finding the group of friends that they will know for the rest of their lives. The best way to be sure that a college is right for a student is for him/her to visit the college, sit in a class, spend the night in the dorms/apartments, take a tour, hang out with current students, to really get a feel of what life would be like at that college.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Individuals who are genuinely interested in learing and self-motivated.

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

A smaller university that is very hands on and practical in education and extracurricular activities are available if you really want to be involved. Those who are involved usually are more socially active and seem to have more fun.

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

I think that students sometimes make mistakes when they look at college just for the social activites. I understand that some people need a social life, but even with smaller universities there are many opportunites to get involved if you really want to. Also, students should not pick a university on which ones their friends are going to because meeting new people makes the college experience. A college or university should mostly be picked by the academic courses they can provide for your major. You are going to college to learn, thats the whole idea! So pick the place that has the best program for your major and you will learn so much more. College should be fun, but it is the time to move towards your goals in life. Set the standards and push yourself to improve.

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

I wish I would have taken more art classes in high school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My university is best known for its architecture and engineering programs. We have professors that work in the fields that they teach and that helps with the information we learn because it is based off of real life experiances. Also, because we are well known for those two fields, we recieve job offers before a lot of our opposing colleges.

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

Plan. Plan for college. Save money, take your time to pick the right university for you, talk to the professors if you are able to, visit the campus, and look into as many scholarships as possible. Personally, I love my university and my position at this school. However, college life is about studying and breaking free from your childhood. When a student has to focus on their finances and aren't able to put the effort that is needed, into their student life, then they aren't recieving the experience that they deserve. Visit the universities you are considering to attend. Take a tour; talk to advisors and professors, and even talk to some of the students that are walking around. Ask them all what they think of the campus and the university as a whole. Ask them for any advice they can give as existing students and LISTEN to what they have to say. People with first hand experience always know better than those that just study the experience rather than living it. Last, get involved. Play sports, act in plays, compete in class related competitions, join a club. Research what you enjoy and get involved. Enjoy college.

What's unique about your campus?

In my eyes, the best thing about my school is the small class sizes. It gives a more personal touch to the classes and makes it easier to learn. With smaller class sizes, there is a larger teacher to student ratio than if we had larger classes wich provides the sutdents more one on one time with the professors.

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

This college is mainly for the upper rich wealthy people that doesn't mind spending money on anything that likes to be bored on campus and eat horrible food.

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

The advice I would like to give those who are interested in college, is to do a lot of research about the college, what he/she has in mind and ask others for advice of that college. Your'll be amazed of the response people tell you about that college you thought of. Also, get involved in the financial aid process with the college, while asking several financial aid question about loans. There are lots of information out there for example: www.fastweb.com, www.collegeboard.com has some information on colleges, these are helpful sites. Basically ask around and do plenty of researching while attending those pre-view days on campus. Good luck with your choices.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

At this college, the most frustrating thing was the internet connection, cafe food, hard to find any jobs, there aren't any actual sports, the financial aid office was not able to help students pay for college , and getting actual help from some professors.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The campus at Lawrence Tech is smaller than most other universities. I like the fact that the University gives every student a laptop to use while they are enrolled, and in most places on campus, there is wireless internet access. This school is very male-dominated, to the point where sometimes I am the only girl in my class. The class sizes are smaller here, and a lot of the faculty in the architecture college are working in the practice.

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

Students in high school who want to have a successful career should start thinking about what it is that they want to do. Think of what is important and what you want to do. Then research and figure out what career path matches with those goals. When you know that, then you can make a good choice of what college to spend the next 4 years or so at. Talk to people. Once you get to college, make sure you keep up with what is happening in classes and around campus. Get involved. Be active. Be social. Just don't let those things get in the way of your education, which is the reason you are spending the money to go to college. You or your parents are not paying for you to sleep through boring classes. If you don't understand what is going on in your class, talk to the professer. They are there to help. Take advantage of the resources offered to you by the college. They are there for your benefit.

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

That I would not have to repeat so much highschool education.

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

Perhaps the worst aspect of this school is the immense cost associated with attending. In many ways having the financial backing necessary would allow me to experience all the strong academic aspects of this school instead of just having to pick and choose.

Describe the students at your school.

The students that attend my school are very goal oriented. Many of the students come from across the world just to attend this school because it is one of the best for engineering and other majors. The students in general are of all ages; mostly ranging from 20-30. Some are the types you would expect to be there such as the ones typical people would call "nerds" or "geeks" and other students are the ones you wouldnt really imagine attending a school like Lawrence. All in all every student is different because they are their own person.

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

The advice I would recommend is to let the students decide what they would like to do with their lives. Yes parents should be involved to an extent but lets look at it this way; The parent have lived their life , now it is time for the student to make an adult decision. So to all the students out there, the main thing would be to look at the school that fits your needs. Dont look for schools that dont care about you. Look for the school that will expand your mind, body, and soul . The school that will shape you to the best of their ability and to make sure you are ready to accomplish things you probably never thought you could do. The best school I believe for any student and parent is the one who satisfies the educational , mental, social, and financial aspects of the student and parent. That is really the only advice I have to give, I have attended for three years and have not once looked back and regreted my choice. Yes I have days I wish I were not there but that happens to everyone, but I look back and enjoy the experience

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

The worst thing about my school I would say is that there are not enough power outlets in the engineering building. Like really, the whole campus is a wireless community and they give a laptop to every student. Yet the engineering building and some parts of the University lack the electrical outputs that are needed to go on these laptops if it were low on power. Another thing I think that may be able to change is the studying areas, yes there are ALOT of places to study, but I feel that some areas should be expanded upon or created.

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

The school I don't mind, the stress and work load I apply to myself is the only real issue I have with this college.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Only people that are truly dedicated to their education and the amount of energy they need to apply to this level of education should ever consider attending a college like this.
