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

Don't be afraid to go far away! Too many people let their fears and misconceptions about college hold them back and keep them close to home - but the academic challenges and life adventures that face you when you really assert your independence and invaluable and really help create great life experience! Don't let stereotypes or misconceptions keep you from going where you feel, in your heart, you need to be.

What's unique about your campus?

It is an open learning environment with a constant flow of ideas. It is a very engaging environment and a place that makes even the most difficult subjects easy to learn.

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

Being in New Orleans, there are huge temptations that hamper education that may not be properly addressed by Loyola staff. Too many students take up time and distract from education due to high amounts of alcohol and drug abuse.

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

My best advice is to pick a college that suits your needs. Thus, this requires campus visits and tours. I cannot stress how important these are; they are your first chance to experience the college. I suggest that you sit down, and write out your ideal college. Include things such as size, location, major of study, etc., but don't forget to include the other important factors that weigh in on a college decision: the life factors. The college that you choose to attend will most likely be your home for the next four years, so if you are someone that hates the cold, don't choose a school that gets horrible cold weather. It is your job to find somewhere that you can be happy for the next four years, as well as succeed academically. If you do choose a large university, it is essential that you ensure that professors get to know you. This is critical when it comes to letters of recommendation. How can someone accurately portray you if they don't know you? My last bit of advice is to go away to college if you can. It opens up a whole new world of experiences.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe that the size of the school is ideal, because it allows for more faculty/student interaction. At Loyola, teachers get to know their students. They know your name; you aren't just a number like at big state schools. The small size of the university also allows you to meet and get to know many of your classmates. The only disadvantage of a small school, is that you don't have the wide variety of course options, but the school lets you take courses at the other universities under the consortium.

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

In all honesty, hurricanes. I know it sounds stupid because everyone knows that hurricanes exist, but I never realized how much of an impact they can have on the school and the city. Hurricane Katrina happend on my first day of class freshmen year. I was not able to start school at Loyola, instead I had to transfer somewhere else, and transfer during the spring semester. While hurricanes like Katrina are rare, even the small ones that approach the city call for mandatory evacuations and campus closures. This, in return, causes the semester to be shortened and thus breaks.

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

Find a school that is relatively small. During Hurricane Katrina, I went to Louisiana State University, where the classes were quite large (50-500 people). I had no connection to the teacher at all... I was a number, not a name. It was extremely difficult to schedule a meeting with my teachers. At a smaller school with smaller classes, a student will be able to develop a healthy student-teacher relationship that is critical to the development to the student.

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

Parents: I think it is important for you to be active in your child's college choices. They are adults, and it is their first adult decision, but it is nice to have your feedback. We hate to admit we are not really ready to let go of you either. Students: Even if you don't end up at your dream school, make the most of your situation. There are so many people who look back and wish they would have gone to college. You have the opportunity, make the best of it, and be great in whatever you do!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The small classes generally lead to class participation and class attendance as huge factors of one's grade. This hurts my grade sometimes. The rules are more strict than my high school. Many professors will not acknowledge "excused absenses" which is unfair because sometimes life happens, and you have to attend to it.

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

First the student should know what they are interseted in and see what fields they can get into that they would enjoy. Then pick a college which is strong in their interests. Parents should never try to pick what college their kids should go to. Because usually the kid ends up hating it because its not what they wanted. Parents should just be supportive in what ever their kid decides. And if the kid doesn't know, then the parents should ask what they are interested in and guide them in their decisions.

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

I wish I would have known sooner what I wanted to do after i graduated. Switching majors in the middle of college hinders my ability to successfully finish on time and get an internship, but Loyola is great with helping me along the way. With their help I think I will be able to get a career out of college.

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

You only live once and you should absolutely make the most of your college experience. I would definately recommend going Greek! I have made friends that I will have for a lifetime and have learned so much from then I will never know. Also in Greek life you associate yourself with pwoplw you might not under different circumstances, so it give you a different outlook on other individuals. Also you should visit as many campuses and take as many tours as possible that is the easiest way to get a feel for college life and to really grasp what is going to be expected of you. Do not give in to peer pressure. I know it's in high school, but in college it's a whole new ball game. Remember to uptain your morals and holds what's most dear to you close to your heart.

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

I wish I would have had a better understanding of how demanding college life is in general. It is quite a culture shock once you move out of your parent's house and have to live on your own. Also the professors aren't as giving as high school teachers. This is a more independent life. You are expected to follow a syllabus and sometimes aren't reminded of upcoming assignments or exams. It is up to you to know on your own and be responsible.

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

My school has many diverse people. There is a group for everyone. No one is ever left out. The academic courses are challegning yet reasonable. You learn what is necesary and then some. Overall I love where I go to school and I would recommend it to anyone. Greek life doesn't play a huge role in campus life. In fact only ablout 20% of the student body iis Greek.

I brag about the computer lab exclusively for graphic design students.
