Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates are conservative folks with religious values. This mindset prohibits them from accepting other ideas, and creates a quietly biased atmosphere on campus.

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

Research, research, research. There is no way to know what kind of a college you or your student is attending until they actually spend an academic year there, but it is easy to get a ball park picture of what campus like will be like at any particular institution if you do the right leg work. Remember that most things the admissions people send you in the mail are public relations packages designed to talk you into giving up your hard earned college fund. Try and see past the razzle dazzle. If you have a family friend who's son or daughter attends the school you are looking at, talk to them. There is nothing better than first hand experience. Just don't get fooled by the admissions office. Never forget that their job is to generate as much tuition money for the college as possible.

The school has a large reputation for its quality of Music degrees. Also, the women's field hockey team has gone to the NCAA playoffs every year I have gone there.

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

Research is the key to finding the right school for an undecided student. When I researched finding the right college, I mapped out the characteristics I wanted. I knew that I wanted to live in a small populated school relatively close to home with an extended social scene, variety of extra-curricular activities and an excellent reputation in my field of study. Knowing what I wanted to major in helped narrow down my application submissions and eventual choice. For the person that has a difficult time understanding what type of school they would like to attend or being undecided with a choice of major, I would suggest visiting a variety of campus sizes, locations, specializations and landscapes. In fact, there are some colleges or universities that will allow a visitor to spend the weekend on campus with a guide and be immersed in its environment and atmosphere. A person should choose a school based on gut feelings and impressions rather than award rankings found in magazines and books. Above all else, I suggest not worrying. Even though some people transfer, most people love their choice of school and will have success in their lives because of it.

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

Be smart and pratical about your chioces . There will be a lot of vioces along the way telling you what is right for you - make sure you listen to your own first before you trust the words of others. (And yes, you're parents will be right most of the time; yes, you will learn the hard way, and no, it won't always be perfect - no matter how much you strive to make it so) This is the start of your new life as an adult, your chioces, your schooling. Don't forget your past and what you've learned from it, concentrate on your present circumstances and remember to think about the future every now and then. Don't be afriad to try new things - even if you are scared to death! These will be the experiances you will remember, the ones you cry over and the ones you'll laugh about later on. Remember: learning is something more than textbooks and lectures: It's friends, events, failure, experiances, mistakes, accomplishments, pride, discouragement, success, re-dos and life. Don't forget to smile, becuase you'll be laughing 10 years from now.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our community atmosphere. We function more as a community than an actual college and students are very proud of this. Also the achievements of the students.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking for on campus residences is a bit frustrating because we have to park 10 minutes from campus and the fact that there is only one bridge over the train tracks.

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

Allow your students to always visit schools that interest them and let them sit it some classes to get a better feel of the school. Always start early in your search for schools along with financial aid (scholarship) searches. Definitely do not be afraid if you go into a school not knowing exactly what you would like to major in. You will take that one class that interests you the most and it will just click!

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

To put it simply parents and students should not sacrifice quality or preference over price. Four years can seem like a long time, so choose a college that is right for you. Many colleges have aid available to those in need, and federal aid is always helpful. Once at the right college for you, make the most of your experience, but remember that you are in college for an education. You will have to work for your grades, and can't rely on someone else to help you get by. You want to do well. Afterall, you're paying for it. Find an appropriate balance between academics and socializing. Socializing could include community service, or even an academic club - it does not have to involve parties or Greek life.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about LVC is the Chemistry department and its emphasis on research and laboratory skills. The professors are great, and become great mentors and friends. If not for this department, I would have transferred long ago.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who comes here and expects people to hand them things, or someone who does not like small town area.

It is best known for its wonderful music and science programs. It is also known for the financial aid and different scholarships that are available to students.

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

Finding the right college can be tough, but you just have to remember to stay true to yourself. If you like large classroom sizes, look at "bigger" schools. If you want more personal, one-on-one attention with your professors, look at "smaller" schools. Also, any college you look at is going to come with a cost, and most colleges provide some sort of financial aid. It is best to look for one that you know will help you in receiving the best education possible for the most reasonable cost. Lastly, it is good to look at schools that have a strong program in what you wish to major in.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is a great school, but pretty pricy. It gets a little frustrating trying to keep up with payments and wondering if you will be able to continue in the following semester.

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

It is vital to visit a handful of schools that you feel will better your field of study. First, go on the internet and look at their website to get basic facts. Then, schedule dates for you to go visit the school. Make sure you visit the school during the class hours so that you can get the atmosphere of the school. If you are an athlete, artist, musician, etc, make sure you check out those individual programs too. They will be a major part of your college experience. Last, talk to students that have went and still go to that institution now because they will be able to give you a student perspective rather than an administrative perspective about the campus.

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

I tell my friends that I will have a better job when I get out of college because of the high academic quality of our school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is the same size as my high school was. However, this is a good thing to develop long lasting friendships. I also wish there was more involvement in sporting events.

In smaller colleges all of your teachers know your name, you are not just a number. This helps if you ever have problems with assignments or understanding a concept because teachers are more willing to help.

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

My school is made up of a small community of people from similar backgrounds. There is a large range of majors with the most popular majors being music and education. It is a mall school located in central PA. There is nowhere on campus you can't get to in 5 mins (except the freshman parking lot). It is a pretty campus and the school spends a lot of time keeping it that way.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very open-minded and welcoming. We all get along very well despite our differences. I wouldn't say we are all close friends, meaning we don't hang out on a regular basis, but we talk, help each other, and study together.

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

It is really important to find a school that fits you. Don't choose a college based on what your family and friends think, because if you don't like it you won't enjoy your time there. I think the most important criteria to consider are location (distance from home you want to be), the strength of the program you plan on participating in, and cost. I think it is also important to consider the faculty in your decision.. The more commited to your education they are, the more enjoyable your educational experience will be. The most important advice I can give you once you're in college is to meet as many people and participate in as many things as possible. Once you graduate, you will never have the same opportunities again. Join every club you can as it is a great way to meet people and you can always quit later if you decide it isn't for you. Take every opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. Don't judge people on first impressions. You'd be surprised which people could end up being your closest friends.
