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

College is mandatory for success in today's day and age. Because of this, one may think it is dry and forced, while the college experience is the contrary. College years are the best time in one's youth he or she will experience and will never forget. The right college depends on a few key factors. Tuition cost is high on the list because struggling to pay for each semester will weigh heavily on one's mind. Proximity to the rest of his or her tasks is also important. Find a school where classes are close to home or at least easy to get to on time from the dorm. Also, the right college depends on major. Certain schools are known for certain majors. For example, Stony Brook is great and known nationwide for it's medical program. Making the most out of college experience depends what is desired. Social life takes stress off of daily tasks. Good professors change a long day of classes into an exciting time. Make friends with people from all different ways of life. One can learn alot from someone from different culture with different customs and beliefs.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

CW Post is not for one without ambition. Those who try to skate by with little or no effort will not succeed. Being late, being unprepared (no pen, reading material, notebook) or those who do not do at home readings should not attend CW Post. Most importantly, those without the grades, money, or athletic ability should not attend CW Post - tuition is astronomically high.

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

To find the right college, you need to go and visit. Take into account the tuition, and loans, and what you will be paying back, and how long it will take. Make sure you will have a secure job, look into the job placement percentages of right after college. For the parents, make sure your child is happy with their decision, and make sure that they have a backup choice. My first choice was originally Hartford, CT. I visited, and absolutely hated it. Make the time to get a tour of the school and if your child is living on campus, ask to see a dorm room, so you know what the living situation will be like.

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

The worst thing about this school is that they over book their dorm halls, and the cost of living on campus is way too high. We pay enough for tuition, and over booking dorm halls when we pay for what we pay for is rediculous. Also, the fact that music majors dont have enough time to become RA's. We are on scholarship, but it is never enough to pay for everything.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that were to attend this school should be friendly, personable, and someone who is going to work for their grades. This person should have a good work ethic, and know what they want to accomplish. This school, as well as just about any other, is way too expensive to be changing your major two or three times before you graduate.

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

Attend a college that you are going to be happy at no matter what the cost. It's well worth it despite the stress of the money, which most of the time can be paid back beginning after you graduate. Do research on schools for your major and keep your options open. It's better to apply to too many schools then not enough. Have fun at school, and try not to stress over the little things. Start your work early because due daters tend to creep up quickly and more likely than not the dates will be very close with one another for all your classes.

What's unique about your campus?

What kind of person should attend this school?

someone looking for a more rural looking school that is a determined worker. All of the majors seem to have great resources, and their art prgram is excellent.

Describe the students at your school.

The classmates differe depending on which courses you take, but for the most part all of them are very similar. You have those who really care about getting an education, those who are there because it's the only way their parents will support them or those who are a lot older and are coming back to take a few classes. The strongest vibe you get from these people, is that they really don't care how well they do in college. Their attitude is just as pathetic as the professors.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I guess I'd have to say it's best known for music. I mean we have a huge music ceneter located on campus that does a lot of in an outside performanaces.

Advice for students: Don't base you college choice because your friends are going there or because it's the farthest away from home (yes, you will miss home). Your job as a student is to make sure that you find the right college by looking at its academics, the field in which you think you want to major in, affordability, clubs, life on campus & off campus (easy access to stores or where ever you might want to hang out when you're not on campus) & location location location!! The best advice is to stay over night at your #1 college choice, experience the night life and see if it's something that you are interested in. If it's something you're interested in, then, great! If not, then go to your second choice and if you like that, then great, if not move on to the next college While you are visiting the college, you should sit in on a class to get a bit of what college classes are all about. You have to find out which college best fits you. So before you make a decision, double check everything you like about that college & good luck!

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

Most incoming students are at the age where all these "big" decisions are to be made in such a short time...it can become very stressful on both the student and parents. College is a big step in one's life, but try to remember that it may take some serious time to consider all your options and what your likes and dislikes are. Overall, you're trying to find a school to match your personality. I would definitely suggest visiting various types of schools to really get a sense of what fits for you. Take everything that you find important to yourself and apply that when trying to find a school. Once you have found a winning choice...make sure to fully engross yourself in everything. In class..speak up! In clubs/activities...find your niche and excel, in your social life...become friends with people that you are proud of, don't become someone your not just to find "friends." The college experience is a time to find out how you truely are so try to embrace every moment of it!

What kind of person should attend this school?

There isn't a certain type of person that best fits in..it isn't high school. In my own opinion C. W. Post is a well rounded school with various people with different likes/dislikes, activities, educational standing, backgrounds, etc.. We have a fair share of people from the sterotypical backgrounds as well as people who don't necessarily fit into those perimeters, but find harmony in coexisting together on campus.

Visit multiple campuses see which one fits you best. See what degrees, clubs and activites they have to offer. Plan out roughly how much you will be spending at that university, and compare it to others.
