Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are a little full of drama, but for the most part we always have a good time. our time together is always one big joke, however, we are all very serious about our studies. We know how to have a real good time, but when it comes to our careers, we are all focused. Being pilots, we cannot afford to let our studies slip. The nursing majors at our school are more strict with their studies, but still know how to have fun

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

My advice would be to simply take your time. Start looking at schools very early. Try to get a feel for the class sizes, campus sizes, and campus types that you are looking for. Visit as many schools that interest you as you can. The biggest thing is to not stress. Parents urging kids to go to their college, or pressuring kids into deciding fast only adds to the stress level. Choosing a college is the first part of the college experience and you dont want to start off stressing. When you are making your decision, remember to base your decision off everything. Most people I know who transfer do so because they based their decision on only one or two items, most often social life or sports. When you choose and start at a school, keep in mind, that some people just dont fit in well or get along with a school type. It is ok to think you'll be alright in a large class only to find out you prefer smaller. It is perfectly okay to transfer for those reasons. But most importantly, have fun! These are the best years of your life! Enjoy them!

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

I wish i had already become a private pilot. It would have made my freshman year a little easier, and it would have saved me a lot of money. i also wish i had known how much it was gonna cost to become a pilot. The advisors here sugar coat the costs of flying to attract students here. They dont tell us the real costs of the average student, they just give us the very unrealistic best case scenario.

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

The campus is absolutely beautiful. You are able to have personal relationships with your professors. I have had several classes with only 3-15 students in them.

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

I would encourage them to set up a visit day at the school. I would also encourage them to find students who love the college, students who are indifferent to the college, as well as those who dislike the college. It is important to have all perspectives. I would also take into account finances, class sizes, and location. Not every school is right for every person.

What kind of person should attend this school?

An individual who is self-motivated and enjoys having a personal relationship with one's professors. Lewis has a great nursing, athletic training, and biology department. It also has a strong psychology department, but offers very few opportunities for research.

Lewis is a Lasallian University. Expressing the ideas and teachings of St. John Baptist De LaSalle is always among us.

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

Apply to atleast 7 colleges and narrow the pick to 3 or 4. visit these colleges and let the student make the final choice. ask about the various student activities and clubs to join.

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

I had a really hard time making my final decision on what college I wanted to go to. I had researched alot and still found it hard to make a decision. To find the right college, I would say the most important thing is to go to the school and see it for yourself. A lot of ideas look good on paper and don't pan out in reality. I didn't know that my school was where I wanted to be until I went there and saw student life for myself. You don't even have to take one of those university tours. I just drove to the campus and walked around for a while meeting the students and seeing the sites. It is so much better than the staged photos you see online. Once I saw the school, I knew I'd be comfortable as a student there and that it was the right school for me. Being at ease and comfortable in your new surroundings is extremely important in making the most of your college experience. If you don't like being there, then you won't get out, make friends, and have a good time.

What's unique about your campus?

I love that Lewis is a small school because I like that my teachers know who I am and want to help me succeed. I like that Lewis isn't located in a big city, but that everything or anywhere you would need to go is close to campus. Chicago is only a short trip away (30-45 mins if no traffic) and since Lewis is a commuter school, only about 1000 students actually live on campus. I like that because the resident students tend to know a lot of people and make really good friends.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Lewis is a great place to be if you don't mind small classes and professors who actually know their students' names. The small atmosphere is friendly, but since it is a commuter school, alot of the students go home on the weekends and alot of the services on campus are closed. Most of the students at Lewis are serious about their education and happy to be a part of the Lewis community.
