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


That I should not be as stressed as I had been, and that I would be able to make new friends, meet amazing people, be invovled in activities, and also keep my grades up all fairly easily. I also wish I had known to not fuss over my future major, or my future career, because there will be plenty of time to figure that all out. I wish I had known that it would all work out.


Upon coming to Loras College I wish I knew what I wanted to major in. Since I was unaware of my major I had a late state on my required classes. I would of loved to study abroad, but my schedule does not fit that in.


Loras College seems to act more like business and doesn't seem to care much about students like me who didn't have much of a background in my field of study and also my finanical status


I wish I had known not to worry about not knowing anybody here. I was the only person from my high school that ended up going ot Loras, and I found a solid group of people to hang around with in a very short amount of time. I'm also kind of a shy guy; I don't really put myself out there that much, but I found a great group of people really quick here. Loras has some very good people that attend it.


I love Loras College, but I wish I would have known that the tution was going to increase so much. It is a huge blow to my family's buget.


One thing that I wish I knew before coming to Loras college is what organizations Loras has to offer. Meaning what programs they had to offer to me that fit my future plans and help me to get into Med school.


That it takes a lot of time doing work even on the weekends. Also being better at time mangment.


I wish I had known how much there was to get involved in around campus. It took me awhile to find everthing that I could be involved in.

I wish I would have known how financially strapping it is. It is a very good school, but the combination of tuition, living, books, and meals is really hard to keep up with at times. I have a very busy schedule, and have a part time job in the fall semester. However in the spring during baseball things get very difficult.


I wish I had known that bookstore prices for books are extremely expensive and not worth buying them there and that you get practically nothing when you sell them back.
