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

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.

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.

There are not many big lecture classes. The classes are kept small and more personal.

College is what you put into it. Go where you can afford and make the best of the situation and if you work hard and put the time into it you will succeed.

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

What I do not like about this school is on the weekends sometimes it is dead and I live far away. Overall the school is great. In the near future, however, they will need to upgrade some buildings.

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

Lazy. In more ways then one. It seems the administrative staff has no patience and/concern for the students, the staff is too old and thus burnt out not providing any real challenge in courses, and he students being aware of this generally produce alot of excuses to get by without fulfilling their coursework. Also, this school continuously gives bills with aproximated fees and later applies a series of charges that seem to be unexplainable by the staff, implying they are unessessary fees. Have been scammed out of thousands of borrowed dollars by this university.

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

The best advice I can offer would be not only to check out the facilities on campus and speak with the staff but more importantly speak with the current students! The staff is being paid to speak highly of their employer so no one will ever hear negative aspects of the college or university from their own professors. Speaking with the students currently enrolled , from various programs not only the one you may be interested in, provides a cross-section of the social climate and overall student satisfaction from a group that can be considered peers. Also, apply and investigate a minimum of three colleges, this will give a good basis for comparison and aid the future student in finding where they feel most comfortable. Finally, do not be afraid to leave the state! I think in most circumstances not having the cusion provided by ones parents living in close proximity forces the newly established young adult to depend on themselves, thus propelling them into adulthood. I found those whom I had known to stay home or close to it through college, never grew up due to never leaving their comfort zone or testing their independence and capabilities. Good Luck!!

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

It is a private school with a good reputation, though I do not know how they obtained such a reputation due to the lack of student satisfaction.
