Do your research. Pick a school you feel most comfortable at and believe will be the best suitable choice for your college career.

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

I would suggest visiting the college before you go, and also visiting Financial Aid and keeping on them all the time because they have to deal with thousands of students a day and won't remember your situation off the top of their head.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is looking for a school that is big but a the same time homely. You will become very comfortable living there so it is easier for you to do well in school. I think a person who is laid back should attend because it is a very laid back school.

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

Speak to students on campus as much as possible prior to acceptance as well as visiting living areas, eating the food available and checking out the classrooms your program will be conducted in. Most of all check the schools reputation for giving the proper funding to students in a timely fashion. In our shakey economic times presently, it will be imperative to not leave school with a mountain of debt, especially if it may have been avoidable by having the right people invovled in processing your information. Lastly, I would say attend college because you are passionate about a specific subject. If your reason for attendence is anything but that you will be wasting a significant amount of time and money and should reassess your long term goals.

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

I wish I had known what a scam it was in that the programs I was apart of were heavily underfunded, while the gym was coated in brand new equiptment. I wish I had known how to beat financial aid and bursar at stealing my borrowed money. I wish I had known a school that carried my major other than this one, since I could not find an undergraduate program offering the same degree. Most of all I wish I had gone somewhere else.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person looking to get through academics without very much effort who would prefer to focus more on thier social life. They should also be the kind to have their parents pay for their schooling because a) it is excessively overpriced, and b) financial aid is heavily incompetent so your debt will skyrocket.

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

It can be very difficult sometimes to find a college that is directly suitable for you/your child, because there is no real way to tell how the experience will be. To try to find the most suitable one, make sure you/your child understand(s) in some form generally what you/he/she would like to study and what kind of environment is desired. To make the most out of the experience, you must put in some effort to receive benefits.

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

Being able to pay for the loans. Because it is a private school, tuition is very expensive and is rising steadily.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Some professors do not know what they are talking about, although there are a handful that are very good in their field.

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

make sure the school you chose is the one that you want to stay at for the next 4 years or so, because as well as your academics are important, you will find yourself at home and grow to love the school and the ppl in it, you will build a second family...make sure that the staff and administration are efficient, ask someone that goes or went there, because academically wise if the school turns out not to be what you expected it will be harder for you to transfer out because you've grown so attached...Get financial aid in order, make sure you like the environment, consider accessability to the outside world, qualification of staff, and campus attitude...Good Luck

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

Students trying to find the right school should always consider what they want to get out of a college education as well as the campus community. Always take into account where you think you want to be within the next four years and not just about how much fun you want to have while attending college because it is about alot more then fun. You grow as an individual through the college that you choose to attend and try to make sure it is really what you want. As for the parents, do not force your kids to go somewhere that you want them to because it is financially beneficial to you. There are thousands of ways to pay for a college education, do not let money hold back your kids from something they are entitled to. It will be the best thing you can do for your children if they go to college where THEY WANT TO.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about CW Post is the lack of parking on campus for commuter students.

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

Be open to your child's needs anf flexible and what schools you will approve for them to consider. I think that finding a school that is the right fit is often essential to the success of the student in being able to use the knowledge they gained in their degree. I also would look for schools with a large emphasis of experiential education to provide its students the opportunity for hand-on experience through real-world applications.

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

I talk about how I am trying my best to make the school more environmentally-friendly and overcoming frustrations with this endeavor

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The unwillingness of the administration to listen to students' needs, and wants combined with an overall ignorance and a high level of beaurocracy

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

Go on a tour of the college. Do not be afraid of talking to students that attend the school. Visit and speak to the staff in your particular major, financial aid, academic counselor and job placement offices.

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

The ability to commute was a cchallenge often. Especially with the class schedules in the evenings.

The campus itself is different. It's very nice to look at and be a part of; there are many places to study on campus or socialize with other students.

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

Definitely visit the campus before you decide to attend. There are many things you can get out of it by visiting that you wouldn't by simply reading about it through brochures or applications. Talk to other students and staff; find out their opinions and what is required at the campus. Also, time management is one of the most important things you can learn. Make sure to make time for all of your work and studying. If you need a break, take it and have a little fun. Just don't forget your priorities. Money management is also something that should be learned quickly. If you're not careful, your money can be gone before you know it and you'll wonder where it all went. Budget yourself, and stick to it. It's okay to have fun and indulge sometimes, but make sure you have enough for what you need.

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

This school offers small classes, available academic counseling and friendly peer mentoring. The freshman seminar class enables students to become acquainted with the campus while learning the feel of college. As a whole, the classes are enriching and the campus is beautiful during every season.

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

There are many different things I would tell students when researching and choosing a college. First, everyone must keep in mind that a college experience should be one that students will value for the rest of their lives. Students need to choose somewhere they feel at home and safe. As a commuter, I spend more time at my college than I do at home. Colleges are safe places to be because they foster social skills and academics. I would also recommend that students visit all of the schools they apply to. The decision of where to go depends highly upon financial means as well as grades and other opportunities. Students should exhaust all of their options and think carefully about this decision as it effects the next four years of their life. Finally, students make the most of their college experiences by being present. While the social scene is fun, it should not interfere with learning entirely. Whatever you do with the next four years of your life will shape your entire future. As scary as it sounds, the future is in your hands alone and your family can only help you make the most educated decision for yourself.

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

I wish I had fully investigated the scholarship requirements before making assumptions. Students of any college should also be aware of all degree opportunities just in case they decide to switch majors.
