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

Concerning choosing a college, actively seek what will give you the best broad education possible. Do not be timid ? hold each school liable to the highest degree concerning weaknesses and give due credit when you find a school that does something well. Use this to gage where your calling lies. This will be your alma mater, your school for the rest of your life. Take hold of the opportunity and pursue it with industrious fervor. And by no means are you to expect that once you are at school that your college experience will simply come to you. No! Be active as much as you can in all number of extracurricular activates, Greek life, music ensembles, and political activism. This is the college experience which you seek when applying to a school of higher education ? this is what it is all about. Much luck to you and your family as you begin the greatest part of your life so far.

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

That small schools have smaller facilities / ability to proved facilities etc. That smaller schools have smaller social circles and as such there is less you can do without everyone knowing it.

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

I would definitely encourage students to visit the campuses that they have applied to. A visit will allow them to experience the college or university's atmosphere firsthand. When you actually begin college, go out and participate in extra curricular activities. This will help you find a group of people who share common interests with you and allow you to make new, longlasting friendships!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A focused, driven, and outgoing individual would do great at Lenoir-Rhyne University.

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

Making the final decision on what college to attend kind be extremelly stressful. It is important for the student and family to visit each college that they are interested in. It is also important that the student base their decision on the career path that they have choosen. I am a nursing major and I feel like the small school environment has helped me to excel in my academics. Being a socially driven person, the distractions of large schools could have lead me off path and into trouble. With all the many scholarships available, the cost of private institutions can be minimized. Go with your gut feeling, any school you choose will feel normal, just be sure that the decision has been well thought out and finalized for the right reasons. To the students, listen to your parents and advisors. Do not pick a school just because you like their sports team or just because your friend is going there. Look ahead into the future and imagine how you would like to see yourself in five years. Pick a school that you feel can help you reach that goal, because remember, this is why you attend college.

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

It's very small atmosphere encourages a kind-of family feel on the campus. Everyone is also very friendly and they all get along with each other.

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

Get outside of your comfort zone!! It truly helps you to become stronger as a person, and to become more social which will, in turn, help you as you choose your career path. Pick a school with a lot of activities and clubs, it is great to get involved with people who believe in the things that you do!

What kind of person should attend this school?

One that is looking for a small, intimate school, with a strong academic background.

Talk to a career counselor before declaring a major to avoid wasted time as a undeclared major. Make sure its the right choice for you and the money will follow.

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

My school is very small, not focused on alcohol or partying. My school is very goal oriented, advisors focusing every student to stay on the right track.

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

I would definitely advise every student to go to the campus(es) that you are considering and see if you could see yourself adapting the area. Also, I would consider picking a school not because of friends or relationships, instead chose the school that will help you in the future. The school that you will benefit you the best with your goals.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The labs for most science classes has more homework and studying than the lecture class of the same science classes. The labs are once a week for an hour, whereas, the lectures are 1hr and 15 minutes, three days a week.

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

To find a college do not go to a college purely for an athletic scholarship or any other scholarship/financial aid package. The students must love the size and style of the campus as well as the opportunities the particular institution has for students. In short, this college is the best time of your life so you should be at a school you love.

What's unique about your campus?

The Greek Life because it is the best way to get involved and meet a lot of new people.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates at this school range from the funny and outgoing types to the more reserved, but still sociable types of students..with an atmosphere and environment that welcomes people to have free personalities, people can't help but just..be themselves!

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

First of all, I would tell parents and students to find a college that offers the student's known major. Afterwards, students should go visit the campus of the school of their first choice on a designated touring day and on a regular day. Get a feel for the campus and talk to the different faculty/staff available to converse with. Once you arrive at the college of your choice, make sure to get to know the students on your hall-believe me, they're just as nervous as you are. While at school, make sure to be involved in the things that interest you and always remember your first priority: doing well in each of your classes. If you have kept in line with all of these helpful tidbits, you're sure to reach success in your college life and in life after college as well!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

To be honest, anyone should try to attend this school. If at first students may think that this school does not seem to be what they are looking for, they will begin to find out very soon that it is actually just the school that they need. With plenty of majors to choose from, professors that are eager to help, classmates and friends that are here for you, and a friendly envionment that welcomes all, it is hard to imagine someone that shouldn't attend this school!

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

Talk to students at the college-not just the ones admissions/enrollment are paying. Look up someone on facebook. Ask about stuff that doesn't seem like a big deal, just as much as the stuff that seems really important. Those little things become big things if they build up and it's easier know them ahead of time. Don't worry about what your friends are doing or where they're going. Choose the right place for you.

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

How much it would really cost-tuition and room and board sky rocket every year and you end up paying more each year you're here.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who actually wants an academic challenge (unless they're in the nursing program).
