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

You must choose the school that can best help you achieve your goals. You should choose a school at which you are comfortable. Not comfortable in the way in which your classes don't push you and challenge you to become better, but in the way that you know that if you work hard and earn it you will succeed. You should also feel safe, not only amongst your teachers and classmates, but also amongst those visitors whom your school allows onto the campus. You should feel as though your professors are mentors as well as teachers; mentors who not only inform you but guide you in your own discoveries. You should never feel pressured to agree, but sincerely encouraged to disagree. You should feel as if you learn more outside of class than in it, but that is not to say that you don't learn anything in class. You learn a lot there too, but the experiences you have outside of class prepare you so much more for your future. You should most importantly feel that your school's main concern is your well-being and success. Your school should care about you and show it too!

What kind of person should attend this school?

One who is comfortable in a pretty small environment. It isn't that small, but small enough that your teachers and classmates will know you by name. You will have to participate in classes and find your own voice because there aren't so many people in the class that you can just sit in the background.

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

Research many colleges before making a final decsion. It is also great to visit the college and possibly sit in on lectures. Another important thing to think about is make sure that college is really what the student wants to do. Most importantly, know what you want out of life, it will make it a lot easier finding the right college because you will know exactly what you are looking for. Lastly, when in college, stay focused on your goals and never get distracted.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who knows what career path they want to take in life, who loves to be academically challenged, and who does not want to go to a schoolt that is nether small nor large.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustating thing would be tuition.

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

In order to find the right college, you must know what kind of enviornment you works best in. Some people tend to work better in smaller class enviornment, and if you are one of these people you might want to look into a smaller campus with small class where you can get the attention you need to succeed. The social aspect of college life is also very important. You want to make sure you choose a college where you can get a good education and also have fun. You might want to look into the activities and clubs that each school you are interested in offers. The best advice I can give you is to go and check out the schools you are interested in for yourself. You will be able to get a feel for the environment and you will also get a little taste of college life. Remember, a good college is a place you can learn and enjoy yourself. You only get these years once in your life. Take advantage of them!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Mercer University is its small class sizes and understanding of the professors.

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

When searching for the right college for your children, parents do not try to force your child to live up to your dreams. Talk with your children so that both of you can express your ideas and thoughts. Consider location, academics, and finance. Students should take into consideration their career choice. From your career choice you should narrow down the choice of college. Find which one provides the resources and opportunities that will allow you to achieve your future goals. Think for yourself and don't let others like friends and families influence you not to do what you want. It's all up to you so carefully plan out your choices carefully and as soon as possible. Do not wait until the last minute.

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

There is nothing that I wish I had known before I got here because everything was basically explained and outlined in every aspect by all the professors and the school.

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

The worst thing about my school is that it does not have a football team. Football is a sport that I like to watch, and without it I feel as though I am missing something in my life. I just go home and watch my high school team play.

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

College is a big decision and the most important advice I can give is finding a school that you can afford or feel would be worth the amount of money you are spending. Also visit the campus and see if you think you would fit in with your surroundings. Make sure to look at the community as well as the campus. Also, makes sure you are happy where you are, that you are confident you would make friends and enjoy it there. If it doesn't feel just "right," do not attend that institution. And parents please remember that it's your child's decision to make, not yours. They are the ones who have to live there for four years, not you! Most importantly, enjoy yourself!! College is about having fun, learning about yourself, and making friends while also educating yourself and becoming acclimated with the world!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone with some money who is intelligent and outgoing.

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

Parents and students need to be aware of exactly what they expect from a college before they make their decision. It is not the school's fault if it does not meet your standards or being too big, too expensive, etc. if you knew it beforehand. Costs are very important. Do not choose a school that you know you cannot afford. It is difficult enough to stay focused with school work without having to worry about how you are going to pay next semesters tuition. Begin looking early so that there is plenty of time to find the right one for the student.

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

Explore your options far more. Even check out schools out of state. To get the best out of y our experience though, choose a school an hour or two (or farther) from your home.

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

That the school seems a whole lot smaller than the numbers show. Also, the people here are in general not very friendly.

Mecer University is very expensive and cheap with its financial aid.

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

Don't allow college to change you. Make the most of your undergraduate experience because you only get it once. If a party school is going to be too much of a distraction, don't attend that school. Choose a smaller school. Choose a school that has the environment that is going to help you stay focused. Do not waste your scholarships and your opportunites by comprimising. Play it smart

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

Financial aid and sororities and fraternities is the problem. This is because the sororities and fraternities tend to build a sense of segregation among the students. Although they are told to support each other, there is also a sense of hatred among the groups. This is normal among many schools, but the issue is they cause a lot of controversy, not allowing one another to spend time with who they want. Financial aid is given to new freshman. Several people lose their scholarships their freshman year. I believe that these lost schlarships should be given to other students.

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

College is an experience that I believe all people should have, whether it is in a vocational setting or an academic one. The most important factor in determining what college or post-secondary school to attend lies in knowing how that institution fits with what you see for your future. Know your own personal learning style and have some goals in mind when looking for the right institution. Don't choose a school just because your best friend is going there. In other words, do what is right for you!

What's unique about your campus?

The Mercer campus I attend is a satellite learning center geared toward adult learners. It offers night classes on an 8 week accelerated program. This is the best fit for my situation.
