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

Mars Hill is unique because of the size and how family oriented everyone is here. The clogging team is also exceptional here and competes all around the world and bring back a medal each time. The mountains are beautiful and teachers make the out of home experience as nice as possible in being there for students when needed.

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

The advice I would give to parents and students would be to always tour the campus of the selected school and the town the school is located in to be sure your going to like it. Secondly, If you like to go home on the weekends, try to choose a school a little away from home but not too far so it takes more than 2 hours to get home. Lastly, choose somewhere a little far from home to be able to develop into your own person without the family orientation of what you grew up into. All the experiences from college will create a better you.

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

The most important thing when choosing the right college is going to it! Walk around it, see it, meet people, and sit through classes. See how welcoming they are and what they have to see if it even meets your interests. Never settle for the one school or the first school you get into! Always look around, see your options and then that way when you decide which school you want you know you will be happy there!

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

First of all, make sure the academic setting is right for you. If you learn best in small classrooms, a large university probably isn't the right school for you. Make sure the library offers everything you think you would ever need for research projects and papers, and that the school has a dependable network and internet access. Once you've explored all academic aspects of the school, make sure that the extracurricular activities offered through the school and the community-based activities relate to your interests. If you can't find a place to plug in an get invovled, you may find your social life suffering and you can typically then become unhappy. Find a school with a lot of school spirit. Speaking from experience, it is not too much fun to go to an athletic event and only be surrounded by twenty of your fellow classmates. Get excited and be proud of your school. Choose a school that offers your desired major, has good academic settings and programs, offers extracurricular activities that interest you, and has a sense of school pride. Chances are if you find all of these, you will be happy during your college experience.

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

I chose to attend Mars Hill College in hopes of receiving a large scholarship. However, once I moved in they informed me that my EFC was too high. Had I known I wouldn't have received that scholarship I would have attended Appalachian State University.

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

Narrow down your college search to specific things you are looking for such as size, religious affiliation, distance from home, majors and minors. After applying to many colleges within your interest range compare how they respond to your admission. See if there is a personal caring response and if your questions can be answered before you make any decisions. Once you move into school attend the orientation and social events set up by the school. You may have to step out of your comfort zone to meet new people, but it is totally worth it. Attend a variety of social events and be out in open areas instead of staying in your room to meet new people. And don't go home on your first weekend at school, even if it is really tempting. Staying at school will help you make connections with other students at your school.

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

I brag about the professors and great classes available at my school. As well as the social life I have. It is a beautiful campus where I can have so much fun with my friends outside and in our dorms. We have a 18 hole disc golf course that is unique for a college campus. It is the perfect size and I love it.
