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

To determine if a school is right for someone, one has to categorize factors into what they want academically and socially. For academically, one needs to identify the class size they prefer. Knowing the preferance for class size is helpful in maximizing one's learning. Another academic category to look into is the style of teaching. One should determine the degree one wants the school in their hands-on experience. The more hands-on experience, the more one understands the workings of the system. However, hands-on experience is a self teaching education. One who would like the guidance of a professor would probably profit from learning through lectures. On the social component of determining finding out the right college, one should take a look at the college's location. The more urban a school is located, the more options the students have in interacting with the surroundings. Unfortunately, some students can develop academic problems due to high amount of activities that can be done. Also, the clubs and organizations in a school can be important as it can help connect students with similar interests. If a school can approve both categories, than one has found the right school.

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

I wish I had known that the school has somewhat hardtime getting connected to Boston.

My school is best known for our academics and sports. We have people who like to achieve goals and keep high grades to stay on the sports teams. Our teams are always supported by their large amount of fans and everyone enjoys watching the schools winning teams.

Make sure that the student applies to many schools and narrows the choices down to the school that suits them best. Check out everything including sports, the size of the campus, the different variety of majors, and the dorm situation. Have a good time at school but remember to stay on task and study.

Make sure you choose a school who offers an environment that the student will be comfortable learning in. Trying new things is one thing but do not set your self up for failure by choosing a school that will be to big or to small.

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

I tell them how the small classes allow for a better learning environment and better student teacher interaction.

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

My advice would be to visit as many schools as possible during junior and senior years in high school. The only way you can truly understand each college experience is by going to that college for a night to experience it hands-on. Also, before researching colleges, make a list of specific things that you want to find in your school. This will help narrow down your search. You need criteria to help minimize your choices. If you already know your major, research schools to find the one that best corresponds with your major. You want a school with good resources, etc. Also, you may want to research internship opportunies and job placement statistics. These things are very important later in your college career. I would also take the time to eat in the cafeteria. You will be here a lot and if you do not enjoy the food, you will be miserable! You may also want to consider how far away each school is home. This is very important because if you are far, you will only be visiting home a few times a year! I would say research is the most imporant part of chosing a college!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants a big school with alot of people.

The most important thing to do is to visit all the colleges that make it to your list of potentials. Figure out what the most important features and attributes of a college are to you. Then visit each college and see if they have what you are looking for in a college. Also, picture yourself attending that college and being with the students, and ask yourself if you would like being there. Making most of the college experience is having the right attitude and socializing yourself with the other students. Engage in your work studies, and make time for fun. If you balance the two out you'll have a great experience.
