Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Lewis University is known for providing excellent academic opportunities to both traditional and adult students.

Since you're heading off to college, take time to inventory your life and goals and know what matters most to you. This will be your compass and provide clarity in the decisions that lay ahead.

Some of these options will be better suited for you than others and you'll be able to make wiser decisions because you'll be able decipher what lines up with your goals and matters most to you. While you're getting established on campus, line yourself up with a mentor or academic advisor who can provide you with direction and encouragement. The college staff is there to enrich your learning experience and provide help along the way, take advantage of their excellence! You're about to enter an exciting season in life. Enjoy your new freedom. Make new friends. Join clubs. Stretch yourself and your limits. Make a difference. Be determined to suceed. Recognize your strengths. Develop your weaknesses.

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

Since I'm a stay-at-home mom returning to school I appreciate Lewis University's accelerated adult program, which provides flexible scheduling, online and evening classes to accomodate working adults. This gives me the needed flexibility to complete my degree while maintaining my personal obligations.

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

I would have told myself to become more educated on the transfer process so when I was transferring from my junior college to Lewis I would have been familiar with the whole fafsa process. Also I would have told myself that studying in high school and studying in college are different, and to start reteaching myself to be more indepth on a topic and not just know definitions.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that does not want to work for their education, someone who wants an easy A without putting any effort towards it.

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

I tell them that Lewis University is well known for their excellent aviation and nursing programs. Also their nursing program had an 100% passing rating on the Nursing boards last year. The school is challenging, but the teachers truly care about how well you do and help guide you to success.

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

I would tell myself to have as much fun as possible for the first two years. Since I started my major classes in nursing I have limited time for friends, family and a social life. When the general education classes are getting done in the first two years that's when you have time to join lots of clubs and still have time to study. I wish I would have known to relax more before I really had to settle down and hit the books hard.

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

I wish I would have known that they continue to enroll students but they do not accomodate as far as facilities go. I wish I would have known that the dorms are not very sound proof. I wish I would have known that my sport is not given the same benefits that other sports that go to my school receieve.

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

If I were to go back in time and give myself advice knowing what I know now, would tell myself not to stress out about college. In high school, I thought it was going to be difficult to make the transition. In reality, it is not so hard after all. The hardest part about college is deciding what major I am going to declare. I do not want to declare the wrong major and end up mad all the time because of me hating my job. If i choose the wrong major, I could end up going back into school and declaring a different major so that I live a happy life. Also, in high school, I was worried about whether or not I was going to be able to make new friends. It turns out that making friends in college is easier then it was in high school.

What's unique about your campus?

The teachers at Lewis University know me by my name because the maxinmum class size is not as big if I were to attend a public University.

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

The worst thing about my school is there are not alot of variety of places to choose from to eat compared to other larger schools.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would most definitely stress the fact that AP classes should be taken seriously. Knowing that I could've had college credit and saved myself a whole year of Physics seems so much more appealing now that I have to take the class all over again. AP courses really allow you to get ahead in credits and even graduate earlier. Having that knowledge now makes me look back at my senior year and see how immature I was in my thinking that senior year was a time to coast through to college.

What kind of person should attend this school?

In my perspective, the person that would fit in the best at Lewis is someone who likes personal attention in an academic setting. Being at a big school can really make someone feel like their educational journey is a lone endeavour. However, at Lewis everyone gets to establish a personal relationship with the professors so you never have to feel like there is no one to seek help from.

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

I brag the most about the fact that Lewis has awesome athletic programs. With such a small school it feels really comforting to be surrounded by athelets all the time. Also, because Lewis offers so much in its athletics the Chicago Bears are considering moving their training camp to our campus, now thats definitely something to brag about.

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

First of all, it would be really hard to give myself that bit of advice because I never completed high school. I went to go get my GED during my freshman year. Although if I were going to give a high school senior advice I would tell them that college is really hard especially if all you are thinking about is how to party and have a good time. The one thing that makes college more difficult than high school is all the freedom you get. You have the freedom to make your own choices, and do what you want. Everything is not handed to you, you have to earn it. Don't procrastinate because it makes everything a little bit harder. Also, another thing is that you cannot rely on others because everyone else has a busy life, too. So try not to miss as much as possible because you may not be able to get the work from someone else. Also, always read the syllabus given to you at the beginning of the semester. The syllabus can be very helpful in teaching you how your professor is and what he/she is looking for in a student.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are looking for a party school this is not the school for you. Also, if you aren't someone you would consider to like religion I would not go here because they make you take at least one Theology course which is the study of religion.

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

The fact that they make you take at least one theology course as a general education requirement. The reason why I don't like this is because I am an athiest, and those classes can be very boring.

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

As a freshman, I've learned that the transition from high school to college is not an easy path, but it most definitely is not an impossible one. If you truly want to succeed and know where you want to go, you can get through it without hesitation. Of course you are going to struggle and there might be a point where you feel like there is no way you can make it through another hectic school week, but you have to push yourself and not give up. One of the main things that you will learn through your transition is to manage your time efficiently. You will learn that there is going to be less time of fun and games and there's going to be more of reading and studying in the library. However, this doesn't mean that you will become anti-social, it just means that you will need to put more time into your studies hence time management. In the end everything will pay off, you will have the career of your dreams and had gone through amazing experiences. They do say college is the best four years of your life.

What's unique about your campus?

One of the best things about my school is it's diversity in events. There are tons of events going on every week, from multicutural feasts to a sport game or plays. I definitely believe your study work should be your most important priority, but you need time for yourself and for your friends once in awhile. At Lewis University you have a lot of activities to pick from.

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

Before I started at Lewis University, I wished I had known that I needed to change my study habits. My study habits from high school were horrible, but it worked for me then and I believed that they would work for me in college, as well. However, my old habits would have set me up for failure if I had continued with them, which was a lesson I had to learn the hard way. So it definitely would have been nice if i knew this before.

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

Hello there Bianca, this is your counscious of tomorrow. Here I am to give you couple of advices about your future. From here I can forsee that if you engage in a sport team, just like a volleyball player that you used to be, you would get a brilliant scholarship to support your gear. Also, if you have never given up on piano, you also would have few arts and ideas scholarship to play in the band or just in some concerts that school provides. On the top of everything, while you are in class, do your best and focues in each single subject, because those are not just important to career but to your knowledge and wisdom. Everybody always want to have a talk with smart people, they fullfill you with sharing experiences. Now, when you get here, in the future, make sure you meet a new person everyday and keep in touch with them until life make you apart. We never know what the future holds for us and what those people could do for you!!! Believe in yourself more than you already do and give another step forward. You will definatellly success!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Persons that seek a natural and quite way of learning should attend this school. The environment is just right for those who want to build a bright future and expect success. Staff and faculty do make their best to help each single student throughout the journey. The school provides perfect environment for researches such as the library and a diverse environment with students from different cultures. It fits just perfect in my everyday life. I wish I could just keep on studying during my lifetime. :)

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Because this is a LaSallian and Catholic university I would not recommend people that have faith in different religions and follow it very restrictly; even though, it would be very interesting to learn about different religions and beliefs as well. Other than that it hard to define would not be allowed to go to school. School is public to any individual, from youger ages until later. Come in and ejoy it! Studying is always fun in here!
