What is your overall opinion of this school?

It had a familiar vibe to what I had been used to from Catholic School in the 60s. I have enjoyed very close advising attention. The class sizes are small. The faculty is inspiring and brilliant. I noticed that I might be running out of classes that appealed to me.

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

I went to college right out of high school and immediately declared a major in psychology. I even took the extra step of working as a lab assistant in a psychology lab. I was set up for success, but then senior year came. As my undergraduate degree was wrapping up and it was time to apply for graduate school, I realized that something was missing. The excitement I should have felt for my future was not there and I ended up dropping out. I realized that I had been diligently pursuing a career that I really was not passionate about. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would give the following advice: “Take your freshman year to find your passion.” I felt so much pressure as a freshman in college to declare a major and decide on a career and it led to me to waste a lot of time and money. This fall, after a lot of exploration, I will be pursuing a degree in interior design. I have found my passion and at last excited for what lies ahead in my future.

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

Small classes mean accountability. Most people love Marylhurst for their small class sizes, usually around ten students. Because of this, you can not get away with missing class or not turing in assignments. Your teacher and classmates will notice. This might sound intimidating, but it is actually really great. Not only do they notice, but they also care. Your teacher will work with you to get you back on track if you stray and your classmates make up a supportive team to help you get there.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Marylhurst is a school for those that are serious about getting a quality education. There are a lot of non-traditional students for this reason, with people of all ages and backgrounds. It is not a college mostly comprised of 18-22 year olds. If you want to go to school for a party, Marylhurst is not it. There are no fraternaties, sororities or sports teams. It is a school comprised of students that are there to learn.

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

As a high school senior, I had no friends. I was the loner that none of the students talked to, but all the teachers loved. I was a hopeless dreamer and my only wish was to fit in and have friends. If I could go back and give my high school senior self advice, I'd say, "Don't worry about all of these losers you're going to school with. You'll forget about all of them (except for maybe one or two) in a year's time. Just focus on getting the best grades you can right now, and everything else will fall into place. Once you get to college, your life will change drastically. You'll have friends, and the best boyfriend you could have ever hoped for. You'll be the happiest you've ever been in your life. Just hang in there; only one year of high school left. And I promise, your life will be amazing."

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

The food on campus is pretty expensive.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend this school is someone who is very focussed on studying instead of partying. The only parties that take place at this school are study parties. Despite that, the social life is very fulfilling, if you like studying and talking about nothing else but school.

Brilliant, driven and supportive. My classmates are conscious and aware of creating a safe and open learning environment that is enclusive and engageing.

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

Take the time to look into all kinds of schools. Start out going to a community college first to complete your basic core work first! Dont rely just on loans. Apply for scholarships and grants, as many as you can. Take advantage of every oppertunity to make it through school without debt. Stay away from credit cards and listen to your advisors. They know what they are talking about!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The limited amount of courses offered, including the times and the terms they are offered can be challanging for a full schedule.

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

I would tell myself to save a copy of all my papers and notes from every class. Also I would take photographs of every piece of artwork I gave away to keep for memory (and for my portfolio.) I would have been a bit more organized about keeping notes of the valuable information in a separate notebook, for example my ceramics teacher told me that in life it isn't the shiny things that matter, it is the connections you make with fellow humans.. we were talking about buying new cars, and how it is best to just get a nice old toyota corolla for cash than to go into debt and have a shiny new car and a lot of stress that would take energy away from the important things. I would tell myself that sometimes a crappy teacher will give me other kinds of lessons that might not have anything to do with the subject I signed up for. I would tell myself to savor the experience and to take it as slow as necessary to be present for the kids and to not worry about the degree so much, it will come in time.

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

I love my school. The worse thing is that it doesn't have childcare available for students that need it.

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

When I was a high school senior I could careless about getting good grades. I was all about fun and games and just passed high school with C's. When I started at Naugatuck Valley it was a rude awakening for me, but it was great for me at the same time. College is all about being independent and mature. It's up to you to complete your homework on time and hand it in. If i were to give myself advice as a senior in highschool i would say Alexis, Wake up! Getting a degree is my number one priority right now. I would tell myself how tough it would be and how different I would become. I would tell myself to take highschool seriously and get the best grades I can so i would not have to take all the prerequisites that i had to take. 3 years later I am 21 years old, i have a full time job and i am completely independent. I have been working towards my associates degree and i am almost there. I am extremely motivated, and working extremely hard at work to get myself there. My bachelors degree is next!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Upon considering this school, recognize that for all intense purposes, this is a very expensive school. However, one must consider that this is an extremely learning focused, liberal arts, quality vs. quanity educational environment; if you truly value educational experience over "learning factories" then, this is the correct environment for you.

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

There has been a considerable gulf of time and experience between my graduation from high school and when I actually enrolled at a university. I feel I have a very tangible comprehension of who I actually am and, I can directly trace this to my willingness to engage in life, rather than accept paths and goals that others wanted for me. I understand that purpose of these questions is to gaze backwards reflectively and make generic statements like: "I wish I had understood how difficult it would be to keep up with my studies, I should have focused more." or, "Pay attention to your parents and teachers advice, it will benefit you in the end." For myself, I think that is nonsense. I knew who I was at eighteen and I knew what I wanted; education without clear intention or self-directed focus is a colossal waste of time, money and life. I was unsure what I wanted at eighteen yet, I definitely knew what I didn't want: I didn't want to end up stuck in a life, job, relationship that others set before me. Pay attention young man, follow only your path. Your going to be fine.

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

I wish I had known about the high cost of tution based against the amount of funds that an undergraduate would recieve. I also wish that I had been more aware of the community surrounding Marylhurst; despite Marylhurst's considerable liberal tendencies and leanings, there is a definite feeling of old, religious values that appear to die hard.

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

Dear High School Geneva, You need to go to college now and you can do it if you find the right resources and people to support you. This is completely possible! You need to find one wise adult, preferrably who has been to college, who will believe with you that you can do it. You need to find one person who can show you the steps. Be persistant in finding this person, then be persistant in following their advice . Make this your number one priority. This is far more important than anything else you might wish to do right now. This is going to be hard. Become very determained. If you don't know what you want to do for a career right now, that is OK. You will know more as you progress through your education and you can always add on more training if needed. Take steps in your life to show the adults that you are serious about going to school. You need to look like you are serious. You need to seem like a good investment. Be serious. Be a good investment. Work hard, and do this now! You can do it!

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

The classes at Marylhurst are interesting and small. The instructors are well educated and interested in each student as an individual. The campus is beautiful and serene.

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

I was such a quiet person when I was a senior in high school, I didn’t realize all the opportunities that were waiting for me. Furthering your education can be simple, give you a career that supports you financially and feeds your soul. The thoughts of attending college were so intimidating I couldn’t fathom starting college. Applying and attending college is not as frightening as it can seem. By talking to a college advisor you are able to define what your personal goals are. Determining what satisfies your soul and can provide a career may give you the motivation you need to get started on an educational path. Choosing a profession does not always have to be the typical careers that we hear about. There are many occupations that are seldom heard of and many more that can be adapted to fulfill your financial and personal needs. By expanding our knowledge into the unknown we are expanding the opportunities life has for us.

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

If I would have known how wonderful Marylhurst is I would have started as a student earlier. Although the financial aspect still hovers over me, I finally feel that I am on the path of uncovering my full potential. Every aspect of the process of enrolling in Marylhurst has been easy. I went in to find out what Marylhurst was all about and left enrolled. I was given advice on what courses were helpful for me to develop a career path that would feed my soul.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I don’t feel like Marylhurst is for everybody. Following the path of a liberal arts college such as Marylhurst is not just academic development, it is personal development. Because Marylhurst is a writing intensive school showing your knowledge in writing is not just duplication to pass a test, it is personal expression of your acquired knowledge. This reinforces what has been learned during our courses and gives your newly attained understanding direction. There are individuals who prefer to finish required courses to move into a career. Marylhurst gives you a foundation for a prosperous life which includes your career.
