When choosing a college it is important to ask students on your visits about the pros and cons of the school you are visiting. Making sure that you ask for the bad parts of the school force s attending students to give you something compare with. Also visit the places on that campus that you will be using priamrilay!

Some advice that i would give to parents and students about finding the right school would be follow theirheart. Plan to visit the college campuses you are interested in to see how you like the environment that you might be living in. find a school that provides all the things you need to succeed. once you have been accepted and you start college make the most of your college life by being involved in campus activities that are important and interesting to you but never let your social life take away from your education as that is the reason why you are in college. the most important thing is to have fun, don't stress, work hard and do your level best

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

Students and parents my advice to you on choosing the "right" college for you would be as follows. Do your homework, select a school that will accommodate your indivdual needs. There are many schools out there and many of these schools tend to make great promises to incoming students. If you are an individual who does not do well in a large group enviroment, then research the smaller schools that fit your needs. Research the climate and visit 2 or 3 of these interested schools. Climate can definitely be an issue. Sometimes students from the south think thats it great to go to a school in the north, until they get there and have a difficult time adjusting to the weather, this also goes for the students from the north, summer in the south can at times be brutial.Also, take into consideration the distance away from your family, family support is extremely important. In conclusion, I suggest again to plan and research the right school for your academic, social, and financial needs.

1. Be informed, vist a varitey of different schools before making ur decision. 2. Make sure u have or can have the money for college for ALL FOUR YEARS its horrible to see someone attend a university for 3 years and not afford to graduate 3. Research on and off campus activites to see if what your intrested in is avaible 4. Research a major being undecided is just a hassle 5. Find surrounding airports train stations etc. because you want it to be as easy as possible to make it home 6. Get out and do things make friends and memories, HAVE FUN!!!!!!

What's unique about your campus?

Small class sizes and availablity of your professors

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The upper faculty, such as the presidents and deans. They are out of touch with the student and quite frankly the time period. Also the Freshman dorms were built in the 50's mold and insects are all over them.

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

Look into not just the school but the surrounding area ask the current students question about how they like the school, advisors will tell you the good things, only the studnets will tell you the bad. These things will help you better decide about the school, also think about the distance, I live 800 miles away from my home and it is expensive to travel back and forth, in the childs first year they are going to want to travel home more.

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

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

My advice to students is to visit several colleges before you graduate from high school. Go on the internet and look up a college you are interested in and see what days they give tours and go to the college on one of those days and check them out. Inquire about professors for your interest major. Inquire about class sizes and the living situation. Also ask about scholarships, loans, and grants availiable. Don't just go and nod your head. Take part in what may possibly become your future life. Once you have chosen a college if your first semester or even your first year doesn't go well don't give up on college altogether. Look for different professors, look for a different living situation, look at the different opportunities the college offers. If all of that fails look at another college. Don't give up on college and potentially your life just because you have one rough year.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person which should attend this school is a person who is interested in staff that care about he or she. Everyone here comes from a different walk of life and everyone has experienced emotions that are different from others. Here students can come together as one community and share in triumphs and turmoils together and rejoice in the fact that professors know them by their first and last names rather than just as a number. At Methodist University anyone can get a personal relationship with their professors if they come here.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People that think college is their first chance of freedom and intend to drink or party continuously with the attitude that class and "the real world" come second to their lives should not attend Methodist University. Methodist is a university designed for those who want to graduate and do something with their lives. That opportunity starts with the Freshman year here. Students cannot just pick up the required classes they need their Senior year here after they have spent the past 3 years partying. Students must work from the beginning.

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

Making the right decision for college is very tough, especially for the first time. During my college search, I knew exactly what I was looking for in a school. I wanted to play soccer and do my major, while saving some money. Three colleges, of the three that I applied to, accepted me. I knew money was an issue with my parents, so I picked the college that would best suite them, and my needs. It turns out that Methodist University was that pick. I couldn't have picked a better school. I'm able to do all of the things I want to do in college, while helping my parents out a little bit. So my advice to parents and students is to mind a medium. Both parents and students need to be able to agree on the college, especially if the parents will be on ones paying. If they can agree, then everyone is happy, and the student can do well with the transition and the parents can cope with the finacial part.

What's unique about your campus?

The ability to play a sport and do the things required in my major without punishment is definitely one of the best qualities at Methodist University.

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

Find the college that works for you. Visit the college multiple times if need be and meet the instructors. Buckle down and study hard and know that what you do in college today leads to the friendships and careers of tomorrow. Parents, support your kids and give them some space but still stay involved in their lives and grades. College can be an exciting experience but remember first and foremost, you are there to prepare for your future.

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

I really wish I would've realized how hard it is to be a adult in my 30's and to go back to school. I am a mother and a wife at home and I find it difficult to relate to the younger kids that are just entering school. My outlook on life and my priorities are much different than so people who are going to college for the first time and they seem to be very interested in the social aspect whereas I am focused on my education.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Methodist has a little something for everyone. I believe that everyone can fit in here. I do believe if you are looking for a large population and a environment that is less emotionally attached Methodist may not be the place for you. Our classes are small and our teachers are very involved in our lives. They really know you and how you think. I think that is a great part of Methodist but some may differ.

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

Finding the right college is so important for everyone. It's important to know what school has a particular major and/or minor and what extra-curricular activities are available for more of a hands-on experience in the desired field. That, I think, is the easiest part. Making the most of one's college experience should be easy but honestly it is not. Every student wants to fit in or feel like they belong. He or she will get involved with a group of people, for some good and bad reasons. The most important thing is to find a group of friends that one has similar interests but at the same time remain focused on school and anything else he deems important ie religion, family, or work. Keeping a positive attitude each and everyday will only make things better for the student. There will be bad days, and of course good ones, but as long the student remembers why he or she is here, they can get pass the "in-crowd", peer pressure, and the bad roomate who gets up before 7 every morning...they will see the bigger picture and be happy with their daily choices.

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

MU has no school spirit. Some teams are favored more than others but that should not even matter. Parents and alumni are the only ones at the games, the pep rallys are not long enough to really get excited about an upcoming game, and there just doesn't seem to be very much excitement when it comes to supporting the teams at this school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Methodist University would be a good choice for a traditional or nontraditional student who is used to being close to home, but still wanting to experience a little bit of a city life. Most of my friends, including myself are from small towns in North Carolina. We all enjoy going out during the week, but all enjoy being able to get home whenever we please.
