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

I would advise students to take initiative about the decisions that will impact their future. Your parents should not do all the work. Research schools using the many resources available and narrow your selection based on the best fit for your personality and goals. Take the application process seriously and again use resources available to assist in the process and with the essays. To make the most of your college experience, get involved! Keep an open mind, don't be afraid to ask questions, network, study hard and make good decisions. Embrace the new friendships and the opportunities to create lifelong memories. College is but one phase of your life, live it to the fullest and you will reap the rewards.

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

It offers a lot of community activities as well as on campus activities. The classes are relatively large, but the professors always make it known that they are available when we need them.

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

Look at all of the choices you have put in front of you, and try to visit most of them. Once you visit them, make a list and try to put them in order of the best to the worst. Remember, you are the one going to the school, so you should be the one to make the main decision. Make the choice based on how you felt when you went the campus and if you were comfortable or not. You will be attending that university for 4 years, so you want to make sure that it is the right one for you!

What's unique about your campus?

The location. It is convient with a lot of stores, the mall, banks, parks, river, restaurants, etc. It is also convient for those students that want to stay at home because it isn't a far drive from the other cities around it.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Probably the movie We Are Marshall, our science department, and football even though we haven't been good for a while

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

It is important not only to find a college or university that has your field of study but to also find the school where the atmosphere fits your personality and learning style. One of the most important things to look for is diversity. You should be able to explore different cultures, traditions, and styles within the safety net of your quasi-adult stage of life. You will never have another time in yoiur life where you will be able to interact and explore as freely.

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

I would tell them to visit the schools while classes are in session before they make their decision. This would give them a feel for what it is like to be a student there on a typical school day. Also they should ask students questions about the faculty and staff. That way they can see how caring or uncaring they may be. They should also ask about any extracurriculars they may be interested in.

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

I wish I would have known how hot Huntington can get. I wish I would have known how cold it can get in the winter.

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

I brag about our campus. It's beautiful, small, and flat. I brag about getting to go to Division 1 football games for free. I brag about the friends I've made here.

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

Just look at what the college offers and make sure it's what you will need. Also, look at the campus itself as far as size, diversity, etc. and see if you actually like it and wouldn't care to live there 8 months of the year.

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

The quality of education because our football team sucks so I can't brag on them
