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

If i could go back to my senior year in high school the best advice i could give myself would be to start becoming more independent. In college the teachers dont keep reminding you when due dates are, or when tests have been schedueled. In college you become very independent and realize that other people are not going to make you succeed, only you can make yourself do well in your classes. You also have to be prepared to talk to the teachers and guidance counslers in your college to take care of your financial aid needs and picking classes for next semester. High school is meant to get you ready for college, but i dont think that students realize the major diffrences between the two until they have lived their first semester in college.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that should attend this school is someone that likes small class sizes and the feeling that the teachers are always there for you. They know you by your first name, they know how your work habits are and they really try to get to know you. If you like the "Big" school enviroment then Medaille is not for you. If you decide to dorm, the friendships you make are awesome because of the small class sizes. It's more of a family enviroment.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The thing that I find frustrating about Medaille is there scheduling process. You have to wake up before 7:00 A.M. to make your schedule and by the time you get to the front of the line sometimes the classes you need are already filled.

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

As a high school senior I would tell myself to believe more in yourself, with academics and with college life. Coming in as a freshman can be tough but be true to yourself and know that with hard work you can achieve your goals. College is suppose to be a challenge and knowing that ahead of time, gives you a chance to prepare. Now being in college for two years the first year I did fairly well academic wise but the confidence in myself to achieve those grades were not where it needed to be. Having the self confidence that you did well on an exam is essential in order to continue to enjoy college life. In addition, do not be afraid to be who you are, because that is what makes you; you. Being at college allows you to be the person you want to be and remaining true to yourself can help you in every aspect of college life. Most of all, have fun in college! College is only for a few short years and yes, grades are the most important but developing friendship and being active is just as important.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Medaille College is the Veterinary Technology program that I am enrolled in. The program is filled with deciated teachers and a well developed hands on experience. The veterinary technology provides a solid backround for your boards and allows for continuing education classes to keep bettering yourself. The program allows for the professors to gain a proffesional relationship for each and every student. The hands on experience of working with animals is essential for the field and being able to do that the first week of class is one that is very rewarding.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating is the outside activities with the school. The school does not gear activities for commuter students and a large part of the student population commutes. Therefore, the solution would be to try and see what the students would like and when would be a good time to do so.

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

I think that finding the right college has to be made by the student not the parent. The size of campus and classes has to fit to the student. Also the students need a chance to meet their professors to see if they can offer the education that they need. To make the most of the college experience a student should live on campus. This allows a student to meet new people and really get a feel for the campus.

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

I think that the campus is so small that it tends to get boring after a little while.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who likes small classes and wants to do work and meet new people.

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

Go with your gut feelings and make the most of it. Remember that just like life there are good people and bad people every where. Live on campus if you can. Be open to making new friends. Remember that if you ever felt like you couldn't be yourself, now is the time to be free and be all that you can. Encourage others to do the same. Lastly dont forget to figure out who you are if you dont already know.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type that shouldn't attend this school are people that need to meet and see new people everyday. The type of people that wouldnt like Medaille College need more out of a school, people,space, choices.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very supportive and i love the fact that they a ll like to work together as one. This is something that will allow us to interact with one another and hopefully help us in the future.

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

College is a place where in individual should seek education. Picking the right college is very important, because it determines your future standing. When picking the right school, make sure that your major is offered and try to meet with professors before hand. Once the school is chosen, make sure that a tour of the school is planned. Taking a tour of the school helps an individual determine that this is the school is right for them. Above all, school can be fun, but never let social life take over academic life. The purpose is to learn new things and succeed in life!

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

Medaille college is a very small private school. The diversity there is very low. According to a medaille survey, last year their was approximately 10% African Americans , 5% Latino, and 85% Caucations. I think that medaille needs to become more engaging in student life, so that other outside people who are interested in medaille will see that Medaille is so much more than a private school that is very expensive

My school is best known for its small class sizes and close friendly atmosphere with staff and students.

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

Don't just choose a school because your friends from high school go there. Choose the one that's best for you. One that has the right class size for you, one with many extra activities, and well liked, friendly professors.

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

dont rush the decision. and definatley dont base your decision on one factor, such as athletics. Academics are what you go to school for, and its all you have once you graduate, so make sure you do the best you can for yourself. Also, dont be afraid of the sitcker price of the school. many schools offer financial aid to almost all students. its like buying a car. the price is never as high as the MSRP sticker.

What's unique about your campus?

the community feeling shared among students. we all support eachother, especially the athletes. students are always being recognized and attending games for other sports. Athletes supporting Athletes.

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

Administration should be easy to work with, able to answer your questions, treat you kindly, and dont beat around the bush. Always stay ontop of your financial aid. Consentrate on your school work, make it your priority. Work hard because it is all worth it.

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

My school is a very close community. Everyone knows everyone and compared to most schools this school is like a big family. No one judges other people and everyone is helpful and kind. I like that Medaille is a comfortable learning enviornment.

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

Finding the right college is all about feeling comfortable and fitting in. As a student I was always concerned about small class size and feeling comfortable. I reccomend visiting schools and maybe shadow a student to see how classes are an what the campus is like. As for parents, it is easier and less stressful on a child if you simply just support their decsion and ae there for them when they need you throughout the college process. As for making the most of your college experience try to everything you want to do without overwhelming yourself. It will make you feel more comfortable at college if you are a part of a team, group, or club. A life long friend can be made. Lastly just have fun and enjoy every minute of your college experience.

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

That college is not as bad as it seems. Also that the parking is very aggrivating. All freshmen have to take a shuttle Metro bus from the Buffalo Zoo to the school, that was my only upset with this college. There is no room for parking!!!!!
