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

In my opinion, the most important aspect in finding the right college is finding one that the student will feel comfortable attending. It is up to the student to decide whether or not they want to attend a college that has a large student population or a small one. The amount of extra-curricular activities is also important. College isn't just about school work, it's also about students interacting with others and getting to know themselves better. The experience a student has at college will stay with them for life, so it is very important that they make the best of college life. They should become involved in social activities, make many new friends, and just enjoy life. College can be an anxiety producing time for anyone but this dosent have to be the case if the student makes a careful decision on where to attend college. They should find a college that fits their personality and lifestyle so that there is only a small transition into college as oppossed to a large one. If all of these aspects are taken into consideration, the student can easily make their college years the most enjoyable experience of their lifetime.

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

I would say that the worst thing about my school is the tuition cost. I feel that the education is often worth it because there is a strong dedication from faculty to make sure that all students are academically successful. A wide variety of graduate and undergraduate programs are offered, giving students many choices for their career paths. Most importantly, I really feel that I am recieving a good education and actually learning something meaningful. However, as mentioned, the tuition continues to increase each year, which causes many students to transfer because they are unable to afford the cost.

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

When choosing a school, you should definitely visit more than one, because comparisons can save you from ending up at a school you might not actually like for 4 years. Also, follow your gut and make sure you choose a school where you can see yourself living and studying for 4 (or more) years. Once you choose a school, make it a point to find out all that the school has to offer. Joining clubs and organizations helps you meet new people and really adds to the overall college experience.

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

My school is located a few miles from Lake Erie, so I always tell me friends about visiting the lake and the beaches.

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

Choosing the right college is one of the most difficult processes in life. Students should research and know what is important to them. Parents should hold back and only assist in the process, not make the decision. Overall searching for the right college should be fun and exciting so get out there, tour, visit and talk to other students. Good Luck!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking for a big school and parties.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Not having a lot to do in the surrounding community.

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

It is much smaller, but a little more expensive. There are not many things to do off campus.

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

My first piece of advice would be to look into the students major; is this the major you want? Does this school have a good department for what you want to do with your major? Second, what about the college is the most important to you? Do you want a college in a city? A town? Do you want large classes or small personal classes? Third, and probably the most important to parents, what is the financial situation of the school? What kind of scholarships can the student be offered? Are there any loans that could be received through the college? How much will the student and parent be expected to pay throughout the school year? Can you afford it for the next four years? The worst thing you want to do is show up to college on that first day and not have the money to finish the school year, or have to change schools at the end of the year. Remember, your education is priceless; cheaper could mean better... Good luck in your search for the perfect school!

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

That Erie never sees sunlight... Honestly, if you think Forks from Twilight was bad, wait to you come to Erie where it's always raining or snowing.... That and I wish PA knew what a snow plow is... it would make life so much easier.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Having the largest core curriculem in the country. This causes time issues because you have to complete the core and all your major requirments in order to graduate. Another annoying thing is that some major classes are only offered everyother year, and a lot the time at the same time as something else you have to take... it sucks because you have to find a way to take both classes.

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.

Jennifer
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.

Ernest

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
