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

If I could go back and decide again, as a student-athlete, I would research about the community and social network on campus. Reasons for doing this is because one might realize he/she does not like playing a college sport, but if they love the college then it is worth staying where they are. Do not chose a college based on the coach and sport. Now as a student, I would pick a school that takes you out of your comfort zone and pushes you to get experience in your field. The more experience you have, the easier it is for an employer to hire you, due to a high quality resume the college helps you build.

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

I brag that job placement if very high and you feel confident and prepared when you graduate.

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

If you want one on one attention and small classrooms this is your place. You need to find a school that has good academics first and that will give you the best oppurtunities after you graduate.

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

Some of the teachers here do not utilize the technology making it harder for some students to learn the material.

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

It has to be somewhere you are comfortable. Make sure the major you're going for is offered, it has a strong curriculum and knowledgable professors and somewhere you think you will be prepared to enter the real world after you leave. It also has to be somwhere you think you can live in, whether you prefer cities/suburbs, big classes/small classes, big campus/small campus, what extracurriculars are available, etc. Make sure they all weigh into your decision so when you make your final decision you'll have no regrets about the school you chose.

What's unique about your campus?

Class sizes are small so each student gets to be recognized and is known by a name, not a number and the teachers interact on a personal level with the students

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

Do not look for the instant gratification. Take the time to set goals and realize that these long term goals will pay off in the long run. Make time for fun activities but do not get discouraged when your friends are out partying every weekend and you?re in studying because you chose a difficult major that will pay off in the end. Also, the networking at a university is amazing. There is almost an unlimited amount of information a conversation away. Most professors are more than happy to guide you in this chapter of our lives.

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

The beauty of it. Mercyhurst College takes a lot of pride in its landscaping. From its wonderful entrance gates to its wooden walkway paths, this is what hits you first when you step onto the campus.

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

Finding the right college was perhaps the best part about my applicaiton process. I can remeber driving through the big iron gates to what is now my campus and just thinking that this was the place I was supposed to be for the next four years of my life. The best advice I can give to someone looking for the right college for them is to make sure you visit the campus and then just go with your gut. You do not really get the experience of a college until you visit the campus, the department of your possible major, the cafateria and anything else that will play a major role in your life there. You need to be comfortable with your final decision because your college experience really does help you develop into the adult you will always be.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that is hard working as well as goal and success oriented. Someone that wants to make the most of their life and is willing to work hard to put themselves on top.

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

The school that I attend is very small and everybody knows everybody for the most part. At the other schools I was considering, it would be very difficult to know who everyone is.

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

Visit as many schools as you possibly can and pick whatever school you felt the most comfortable at. If you find a school where you feel comfortable you will most likely enjoy your time at school. No matter what the other characteristics of other schools have, choose the school in which you feel like you would fit in the best.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the diversity of people. Most of the people here are white caucasian and come from upper middle class families.

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

Before you begin the process of choosing a college, it is very important to make a list of the qualities of your ideal school. The list should include such information as the size of school, the programs of study avaliable, the location (urban, rural, east coast, etc.), and the student activities avaliable. After you have made the list, rank your criteria in order of importance. Having a list of important factors will help greatly in the search for the perfect school for you. The list will help eliminate colleges that do not fit your criteria, saving a great amount of time. Choose a handful of colleges that best represent your ideals. Once you have applied and been accepted, make sure that you choose a college that has the most possible matches to your list. Be sure that you choose a college that fits at least your top two or three criteria, if not all. Your college experience will be the most enjoyable if you attend a college that allows you to participate in the activites and studies you enjoy in a place you feel comfortable in. You will be happiest if the college you choose fits your personality.

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

Mercyhurst College is unique because it is a small catholic school. It offers small classes with more opportunity to communicate with teachers/faculty. There are a number of core classes that are required by the college. These classes are a great way to broaden one's knowledge. The classes range from religion, to world cultures, to basic maths and sciences. The students are friendly and easy to get along with.

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

I think that the most helpful advice about finding the right college is to make sure that you are somewhere that you are happy. This place, college, will be your home away from home for the next four years. It is an important decision to make that you are in a place that you love! It is also important to not only find a place that you will be comfortable but also a place that you can afford. You can be in a place you want to be, but might not be happy because of financial difficulty.

What's unique about your campus?

Thebest thing about Mercyhurst College is a tie between its size and location. The size of the school is fairly small as mentioned in the above essay. It makes it easier to speak up in class. The teachers are more accessible, which makes it easier to succeed in classes that one may find difficult. The location of Mercyhurst College is also a great thing because, there are many things to do there. It is not far from home and there is always something to keep you busy.
