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

It is very important to do alot of research on the colleges of choice. Visiting a campus and having a hands-on experience with the students and facilty will help a student to pick a college. In addition, parents should visit the campuses and determine whether the enviroment is safe for their child. And both parent and student should determine whether the financial aid and academic scholarships are financially effective.

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

Many students do not realize the importance of a college that offers academic and social programs, and they end up missing out on their most important years. I would advise students to look for a college that would be best for them. Searching for a college that meets that criteria can take a lot of time. But in order to gain the most from the college years, students should look for a college that will satisfy them academically and socially. Once a student enrolls in a college, he/she should try to make the most of his college experience, by participating in both: the social and academic aspects of the school. A student should not spend all of his time on school work and ignore social events, or spend his/her time on social events and ignore schoolwork. Both aspects, with the right balance, are needed to allow the student to make the most of his/her college experience.

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

To Parents: I think it is very important to allow your child to research and apply to schools that they are interested in. Pushing a child one-way or the other, could result in an expensive mistake! Do the research with your child, give input and offer to visit colleges they are interested in. To Students: Find what you want in a school, but don't skim over any details. Wherever you go will be your home for as long as you stay there. Make sure to check out extra-curricular courses, as well as sports teams and available after school activities. Also check the variety of courses, because it provides the student with the ability to change their major, or pick up an unrelated minor. The best way to get real information about a school is to speak to the alumni, because most of them are going to be honest. Check out the websites of schools that you are interested in. Majority of them offer a way to contact alumni. Once you get there, be social, ask questions and find your niche. Having a good support group of friends is crucial in adjusting to your new world. Good Luck!

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

The financial aid department and the cafeteria. The financial aid department is extremely unorganized, and no one knows what is going on, or what to do with each student. There are always mistakes. The cafeteria is WAY over priced and the staff can be very rude. The food isn't so good either because there aren't any healthy choices available.

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

Start early. Visit every college you are interested in. Ask questions. If you are undecided, it's okay. Take your time and make the right decision for you. Do not rely on anyone else to make your decision. This can affect the rest of your life.

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

The worst thing about Mercy College is its reputation because a degree from there doesn't mean as much as a degree from a different institute.

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

My advice to parents and students about finding the "right" college, is it is not a simple answer. It could be a trial by error case for you. I would say do not settle where you are not happy, make the most out of your college experience, you only live it once. I would also give advice to not rush into a major. Every school has specific course requirments they want you to take, so in the process of declaring a major take the necessary classes then your sophmore or junior year figure out your path. Most importantly my best advice is to enjoy every second of it, I know i have so far!

What's unique about your campus?

i believe that the small classes are the best about my school. And the five differnt campus'.

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

I believe that the admissions process is not the best at my school. They should be more organized and offer more classes at differnt times to accomodate all students.
