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

To my High School Senior-Self-- Congratulations, you alpha dog! No longer are you the innocent pushee, slamming into lockers--you are now the pusher! As you may know, over the next few months, an incredible transition is about to take place. And while you may not be able to see past the tower of homework, college applications, and AP-test study guides, I have written to inform you of what to do. Simply take the opportunities as they come. Do not, I repeat, do not be afraid. You will be approached to speak in front of 700 of your closest friends. You will, contrary to popular belief, go to college. You will meet some people you truly love, and some, well, maybe not so much. You will be invited to explore a brand new city. You will discover how to make a cake without measuring cups. You will really learn the value of patience and persistence. And, in the end, the roller coaster of life will seem that much more thrilling if you just take the opportunties one by one. Signed, Yours of the Future, Lauren E. P.S. Don't stutter on stage.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you do not want teacher interaction, then Mercy is not the school for you. Many teachers truly pride themselves on seeing students achieve rather than the paycheck they collect.

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

The diversity at Mercy College is absolutely incredible. Some colleges are dominiated by one particular racial background, students with similar hometowns and little inter-racial interaction occurs. At Mercy, this isn't the case. Not only do I have great friends from the New York City area, but friends from Haiti, Jamaica, and California. Everyone seems to just get along. Oh , and the school recently remodeled the library, which has gigantic windows overlooking the athletic fields and the Hudson River (with a beautiful view in the fall)!

Be sure to visitall the schools you interested in to go. Stay away from schools in the South. Appreciate the things and people that you have at home. You do not know how good you have it until you are away from home.

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

I WOULD TELL THEM MAKE SURE YOU DO A BACKGROUND IN THE SCHOOL. CHOOSING THE RIGHT SCHOOL IS VERY IMPORTANT. THEREFORE THE PARENTS SHOULD CHECK OUT THE SCHOOL WITH THE STUDENT. SEE HOW ADMINISTRATION IS AND IF ITS A GOOD COLLEGE FOR THEIR CHILD.

What's unique about your campus?

I DONT THINK MERCY COLLEGE HAS ANYTHING TO OFFER. ADMINISTRATION AND ADVISORS ALONG WITH STAFF DONT HELP THE STUDENTS IN THEIR NEEDS. STUDENTS ARE ALWAYS GETTING THE RUN AROUND. MERCY COLLEGE HAS A HIGH RATE OF TRANSFER STUDENTS AND I BELIEVE IT SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN.

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

EVERYTHING IN THE SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE. HOWEVER I WOULD HAVE TO SAY ITS ADMINISTRATION STAFF AND ADVISORS.

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.

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

It is a school that has great teachers and interesting classes in which we learn a lot about the field we want to major in; it is also a school that caters to its students abilities.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It is best known for understanding the student body and working with them to get them to accomplish their goals.

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.
