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

Key advice I would give is to do your research. However, you will not know exactly what the campus is like unless you visit it in person. Also, do not count your parents opinions out, they are a bigger help than you expect. When visiting, do an overnighter, or eat lunch in the dining hall. All of these things that you could do while visiting the college, are important to see if this is the right school for you. When you find the right school, both you AND your parents will know it:) While at college, your experience will be more enjoyable if you get involved. It sounds cliche, but it is the truth. Not only does getting involved in an extracurricular activity give you something to do, but it is an easy way to make friends. Getting involved also helps you manage your time more efficiently because it makes you set yourself on a schedule which is crucial. In conclusion, making the right choice of college to attend is undoubtly a difficult one, but when you do your research both on and off the computer, and get involved, there is no way you can go wrong.

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

The best way to find the right college is making sure one finds the college that best fits the student. The student should search for a college that accommodates to his/her personality and study habits. Some students may prefer a small school over a large one, and vice versa. Some students may be able to attend a socially active college and still perform well academically, others may not. Whether a college is affordable is important. Students should apply for as much financial aid as possible; this includes loans, grants, and scholarships. Grants and scholarships are more favorable because they provide money that doesn?t have to be paid back. It?s best that students visit the colleges they?re applying to. Different colleges have different environments, and are located in different environments. Visiting a college will help a student determine which environment is best for them. A student shouldn't choose a college because it?s an ivy-league or ?well-known? university. They also shouldn?t choose one because their high school friends are going there or their parents went there. If a student finds a college that best matches them, they?re more likely to perform well.

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

No sororities or fraternities, many students plan to pledge when they go to college. Because Marymount doesn't provide sororities or fraternities, many students are repelled.

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

Carefully think and weight all your options. Visit each campus before deciding on a school. Ask students around campus how they like the school. Research a variety of schools and narrow the list from there. Once in a school, go to class and socalize. Find a happy balance between school and social life. Both are important in the college experience

I think what makes it unique is that it is a small Catholic school in DC. It gives the best of both politics and religion.

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

How do you find the right college in a sea of potential schools? It is not an easy task. Sometimes a student grows up dreaming of attending a specific university, only to find out when they visit that it was not what they had dreamed of. My advice to parents and students is to take time and visit several schools. It gives the student a chance to envision themselves attending that school. Sometimes just seeing it gives a person the feeling of ?this is it? or ?this is so not it.? Try to attend a class or two on campus in order to experience how the professors teach. If a student feels they cannot adjust to certain teaching methods then that schools is not for them. Once the right school is chosen the fun part begins! To make the most of their college experience, students should learn how to balance their academic life with their social one. It is wise not to take on too much the first semester of college. Time management is the key to a successful college experience. With the proper balance of school and fun college is easily four of the best years of ones life!

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

I would tell students to evaluate their experiences at high school. Look at what worked for them and did not work for them as far as academia, social aspects, sports, size, and faculty. Then make a short list of schools they would like to attend and visit those schools when class is in session so you can get a feel of what going to that school would be like. Take good questions to ask students who already attend that school on those trips. Apply to your top four picks early for early placement.

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

The lack of financial aid for the second degree students that attend the school is the worst thing. The school attracts second degree Nursing students with an accelerated program yet does not provide any financial aid to help them compensate the financial burden.

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

Both parents and children should listen to each other when looking for a school. Parents have experience and knowledge on their side that will assist their children, whereas new students have a pretty good idea of what will make them comfortable in college. They also know what they want to experience and they should be allowed to experience life for themselves and not what their parents want them to experience.

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

I would advise any student and parents of students to really evaluate what type of degree the student is trying to achieve. When that is determined, then the student should make a list of the best universities and colleges that are strong in that program. Also, the student should list out what type of area they prefer, what type of activities they like to do, and what sorts of events they like to attend and then research to see if that specific university or college have those types of activities and events. This will help students get the best college experience that they are looking for.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that likes a small environment

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

I would just like all of the students to know that despite what they may think, mom and dad know what they are talking about. Even though students may hate the choices their parents make they should listen because their parents are just looking out for their little boy/girl. My mom had the final say on what college I attended and I hated it. But it turns out she picked the right school for me because believe it or not she knew my personality better than I thought. But parents hear your kids out. Talk to them about their options and decide together on the best university. If you just go out and pick a school without consulting your child it caould be a disaster. The best thing you can do for your child is to take them to vist the school for themself.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you are willing to work hard and not fool around then you should apply. Professors dont have time for games so unless you are serious about learning don't apply.
