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

Visit many schools and ask students who go there what they think. Use resources like these surveys to determine what the firsthand experience of the students who attend is.

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

Probably the activity level, campus life, and social life.

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

Now that you have graduated it is time for you to venture out on your own and make some decisions for yourself. So, no matter what your parents tell you, the final decision is in your hands. This does not mean to not consider your parents insights but, it does mean to not let them (or anyone) pressure you into a decision. I have seen so many of my friends attend a college and study for a major that they have no interest in because of their parents attempts to live vicariously through them! Therefore, look around, be open-minded and weight all the possible options. It is your future and you do not want to look up 1-2 years from now discontent because you chose a university to please others and did not follow your heart.

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

I wish I had know that there was not that many scholarships that they offered here.

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

That it is always organized. Unlike most institutions Marymount is very good at doing things in a timely manor and making sure that the student gets the personal attention that he or she deserves.

My advice for students is to go with what your heart tells you. If it honestly tells you that you should go to school where your friends (one example) are going that may not be such a bad thing. I can tell you from experience, being alone at college while knowing no one is a miserable feeling and although your parents send you there to focus on your school work and do well, not having friends or even a social life with hamper your ability to grow as a person. Just keep in mind though, that it's a time to being to prepare for adulthood while still having fun as a kid, not yet pushed into the real world. My advice to parents is to listen to your children. You've already done college and it's their time to experience it. Don't force your opinions on them and make them do what you did or wish you had done. This is their time to experience life and this is a very important time in their lives. If you make all their decisions for them, what kind of adults will they be?

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Marymount is a place where everyone of every background would feel at home. There is a pretty diverse student background here at Marymount and since it's such a small school it's easy to meet people and make friends.

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

My school is a small, Catholic, liberal arts university only a short ride from the heart of our nation's capital.

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

Students should choose a college that will cater to their interests and needs. You should never settle for second best. Choose the school that will offer the best job opportunities, and also consider the extra-curricular activities offered as well. In order to be a well-rounded person you need to be involved in a variety of activities, not only academics. Students should always work hard, because their success in college will help determine their success later in life. Drinking may be fun to some, but always remember to stay safe and make wise choices that you won't regret later down the road. One slip up could potentially ruin your academic career. Don't sweat the small things and try not to stress too much. Life is too short to worry about the little details. Work hard, keep in touch with your families, and have fun!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A closed-minded person shouldn't attend this university, for it is a Catholic school with individuals of a variety of cultures and faiths.

First, find colleges/univeristies that fulfill your future goals; this is the biggest step in finding where you want to put your money and time. After you find a campus that suits your requirements then worry about money and location. When it comes down to it, the college up the street might be inexpensive and close, but if it doesn't have your major its worthless. As a parent/student you want a campus thats lively and fun. For the most part, your going to be away 8-9 months out of the year, you don't want to be unhappy. The bottom line is take as much time deciding where you want to spend 2-4 years of your life because its one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make.

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

Because the campus is so small, parking is a great issue. There aren't enough parking spaces for professors and students so its always so crowded.
