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

You should always visit the school, or schools you have in mind before you make a concrete decision. A lot of people go to whatever college accepts them and gives them the most money, but it's more than that. I visited the school I now attend and from our tour, my parents and I felt more comfortable with the school. You just can't read the viewbook and expect to pick your dream school. To make the most of the college experience, GET OUT OF THE DORM! I sat in my dorm my 1st semester of school and didn't meet many people. Even if you are shy, you have to step out of your comfort zone to enjoy all college has to offer.

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

Most students live at least 30 minutes away or commute, so the social aspect is sometimes split between people who live on campus and those that do not.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone looking for greek life and a large party school.

Our school is very diverse in culture. The Professors are very helpful and want students to succeed not fail. There is alot to do outside of our campus with friends.

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

All students MUST visit the college they are interested in. Do not settle for less! There is a college out there that meets everyone's wants and needs! Also look up some professors that teach at the school of your choice so you know what your getting into. Most of my friends loved their school, but realized they were in the middle of no where. Make sure you take a good look at your campus, but also look at your surrounding areas. Remember you do need a social life and it should not all be spent on campus. Go out and take a load off the books!

The best thing to do is actually get out and visit the campus you're interested in. Really think hard about what kind of school you want to attend: big, small, city life, country, etc.

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

This school is too small and too conservative; it's like being in high school still, not college.

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

When deciding on a college, make multiple visits, once by yourself, and once with a tour guide. Visiting by yourself allows you to see what is really going on with out interferance, but a tour guide will show you the highlights of the campus and give you a students view point. Also, research the teachers, alumni, anyone related to the school to see who you are going to be dealing with and what reputation the school has in the actual field, not just academics. Discuss what is important to you before applying, financial aid, distance from home, class size, activities, job placement, socializing, urban or rural location? And remember while at school, you are working towards a final goal, so keep your eye on the prize, but don't let it be all that you see. Part of college is getting an education ofr a carer, but the other part is learning who you are, what you want in life, and expanding your social circle and views.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that is looking for a large school, classes are small, the campus is small, and there aren't that many students compared to other local universities. Someone in search of fraternities, sororities, or traditionals sports, we have not frats or sororities, and out main sport is field hockey, there is no football team. Someone who is intolerant of other views, the school has a large number of homosexual students, and students from other cultures.

I like it that Marymount, although quite small, is extremely diverse. Our student population represents most of the states and more than 63 different countries worldwide. I've learned so many people from different backgrounds and it's really been a great experience! I believe this makes Marymount truely special.

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

I believe that your college experience is what you make of it. I applied to one school (Marymount University) after looking at only 3 others. The main things I looked at when making my decision were the academic programs offered. I made sure that the school offered all the majors that interested me in case I felt the need to switch majors. This way I wouldn't have to transfer schools if I switched my major. My first semester, I was really tempted to transfer to a bigger school, but I stuck it out and came to appreciate Marymount for its size. I found where I fit in and now it's like a home away from home. I realize everyone has a different way of adjusting to things, but I found it most helpful to connect with people on campus (students, professors and employees) to make the most of my experience at Marymount.

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

I wish that I had known how little the sporting events are attended. Coming from a high school with a lot of school spirit, I was expecting a college with lots of school spirit and was a little disappointed.

My school offered more financial aid wise than the other schools I was considering. Also, my school is close to Washington D.C. and the metro. Having metro accessibility is important for field trips and other fun activities.

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

The first piece of advice I would give to students and their parents is to visit the campuses of the colleges that they have applied to. Make sure that the student goes on the weekends to see if the campus is dead. I would also advise students to talk to current students attending the college/university and ask questions regarding housing, financial aid, and professors. I would advise parents to stay in the college selection process until the child has successfully been accepted and has started attending that college/university. I would suggest that once students are accepted, that they get involved in a few activities and clubs that will enable them to make friends easily. I would also suggest not taking on too many activities or else it may interfere with school work . Overall, students should enjoy their college experience and get the most out of it that they can.

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

Start early your college search. Pick the school that is right for you and that you know you will be happy with 4 years down the road. Pick the school that has lots of student activities and job opportunities available within the community. Your college experience is not all about studying and books, its about becoming independant, responsible, networking and starting your own life. Your college experience is your moment to make adjustments before you take off into the real world.

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

That tuition goes up significantly every year.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

That there are not many class times offerred.

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

College can be a scary place, but if a student finds a college where they are comfortable and have access to support from their classmates and faculty, the college experience can be wonderful. Sometime we tend to stereotype the college experience as long hours at the library or crazy parties at a fraternity. College is so much more than that. The experience should teach a student to grow not only in their knowledge of a subject matter, but as a person. A good college is one that provides a student the oppourtunity to experience new things, learn about other cultures and beliefs, and to explore independence in prepararion for life and a career. . A university that provides safe and enjoyable outlets for a student to separate from their role as a child and learn how to be an adult will be the most successful in encouraging and fostering the growth of a student. The ideal college will be one that best fits the indevidual and provide the environment that a person can identify with and enjoy. To make the most of it, have fun, stay focused, and appreciate the oppourtunities that you have been given to grow as a person.

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

Parking. There really is not enough as the school is small and commuter based near washington dc.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is uncomfortable with the catholic religion, as it is a catholic school and there is a strong catholic community and presence on campus.

Marymount University is unique for its student run programs. The Peer Mentor Program, run solely by upperclassman, assists freshman adjusting to college. This program started in 2004 at Marymount. A small idea that students wanted in order to inform others about what to expect when entering the college life. This program evolved into a three credit First Year Experience class, which deals with time management skills, transition issues and a focus on research. This program was started by students and has continued to be run by students. Students coming first, a motto that Marymount strives to stick to.

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

Be prepared for transition. For most students there are five phases seen in the first year of college. The first phase deals with a student?s honeymoon. Here students meet new friends and find that they have much more freedom then in high school. This leads to the second phase, the culture shock. This phase deals with students missing their high school friends, becoming homesick and realizing that midterms are coming. Students finally realize that college involves work. The third stage deals with the initial adjustment. Students here, usually in the third month, find their routine. This also coincides with the end of the semester and a sense of accomplishment is felt. The fourth phase deals with mental isolation. Here students find that they may not like their major or just do not like college. This is when most students, usually in the middle of the second semester, find college the most difficult. The final phase is the acceptance stage. The year is almost complete and the student now sees the university as a home. To sum it up, having parents and students recognizing this general outline of transitional issues helps both see that these types of issues are normal.

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

My advice to students is to find the college that best fit your lifestyles. An example of this is if you?re a person that likes the outdoors find a college that has plenty of outdoor activities and not a college that in the middle of a big city. One also has to remember that college is a fun learning experience and that you also have to have fun. Enjoy college it only comes around once.
