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

It will feel right when you are on your college visit. Check out their library, Resident halls, student union, and sucess center because if they are not right for you, you won't feel comfortable living the college students' life of work and play. Apply for financial aid! Have fun, make friends, live healthy, and ask for help when you need it. Always go to the college that fits your personality rather than choosing it for the material goods. Always ask questions.

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

The losing financial aid when living off-campus or other situations.

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

Don't be afraid to explore different possibilities. Be sure to visit each school you are interested in and ask as many questions as you have. Parents, let your student make the decision about where they want to go. Otherwise, the student may end up hating where they go and blame it all on you! Just don't be afraid to search and search and search some more until something feels right.

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

I came in with an open mind, so I don't think I would change anything. I have enjoyed getting to know the campus over the years.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants to go to a big school and likes the ability to get lost in a crowd of faces should not come here. The professors know their students and truly care about them, so it is hard to hide.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for its academics. Many employers trust that we graduate with the best degree possible. The students start early getting experience in the field of study they have chosen. This allows them to gain the experience and make the decision to keep going with what they are studying. We , as students, feel well qualified when we graduate and are challenged everyday by our professors. Manchester College has some of the best academics around.

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

Parents and students always wonder if they made the right decision with the college or university they have chosen. My first advice when making this important decision starts with making many visits to many different colleges or universities. Do not limit yourself to a few. When you visit, ask yourself how welcome you felt? How many people did you meet during your visit? I believe the more people that you meet, the more encouraging and entusiastic the faculty is at the school. Ask the school about their graduation and drop out rates. How many graduates find jobs right out of school and how much help does the school give the students to find these jobs? These questions are important to your success at a college or university. Did you get to visit a classroom and meet many professors? Check to see how involved students are around campus and get a list of different clubs and activities. My last advice would be take a chance! When you choose a new school you are starting fresh. Pick somewhere that gets you involved with the best academics. Do not sit back your first year. Start volunteering and meeting new people immediately.

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

I would tell parents' that its all about balance. As parents, you want your children to receive a stellar education that prepares them for a solid career while socialization may be a littler higher on your childs priority list than you'd like. Check out the town that the college is set in and see if it has stores that you may need or even restaraunts if you wanna change up from on campus food. I would tell the students to really enjoy yourself and make the most of it, but do your homework. It's somewhat of a culture shock moving from high school to college and more times than not homework ends up on the back burner, I know I sound like a parent, but doing your homework helps so much on exams and professors see it as a sign you're trying and will often times bump your grade up a tiny bit in the end. Ultimately it comes down to acceptance and cost. The most important thing you can do is take a campus visit and even stay a night if possible.

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

Before I came to Manchester College, I wish I would have known about the difficulty in dealing with the administration. I also wish I had a stronger view of their Athletic Training program, as that would had made them my first choice

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

At Manchester, although it is important to be successful academically, the focus here is on learning. The type of learning stressed here is not particularly facts and figures, but cultural learning, social learning, learning about environmental responsibilities, learning how your actions affect the lives of others, learning through practice, learning how to challenge your beliefs, and most importantly, learning the danger of passive acceptance. The professors here challenge you to think for yourself, including searching out answers to your questions, going beyond the textbooks and digging deeper into the subject, and asking the opinions of others.

At Manchester, although it is important to be successful academically, the focus is on learning. The type of learning stressed is not particularly facts and figures, but cultural learning, social learning, learning about environmental responsibilities, learning how your actions affect the lives of others, learning through practice, learning how to challenge your beliefs, and most importantly, learning the danger of passive acceptance. The professors here challenge you to think for yourself, including searching out answers to your questions, going beyond the textbooks and digging deeper into the subject, and asking the opinions of others. Manchester College is a wonderful school but may not suit your individual needs. The point is, find a college that will challenge you to examine your thoughts, beliefs, and actions, instead of focusing on nothing but textbook material. Sit in on a class or two, and ask about learning experiences outside the classroom. Once you have chosen your college, take advantage of any learning experiences outside the classroom, including volunteering, cultural workshops, extra-curricular activities, and any outside guest speakers. Most of what you will take with you for the rest of your life will be from outside the classroom.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about Manchester is really not even about the school, it is about the people attending. What most frustrates me is when students do not take advantage of the learning, cultural, and social experiences here and just sit in their rooms and play video games.
