I would advise students who are seeking to further their education to make of list of their top schools. Do research on those schools and choose the best one based on their background- morals, beliefs, affordability, and comfortability.

My classmates that I have had thus far while attending this school have mostly been lazy and in school for all the wrong reasons.

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

Words of advice that I would give to a parent and/or student about finding the right college and making the most of their college experience, would be to do a great amount of research on the college they are interested in. In the research that the parent and/or student will be doing, it will behoove them to research all the qualities of the school that will be most beneficial to them. Some of the qualities that a parent and/or student should look for in a school are: tuition, room and board (if staying on campus), quality of the learning environment, learning resources, student to teacher ratio, safety of college campus as well as the area surrounding the college, percentage of graduates each year, and make sure that the major in which the parent and/ or student is seeking is offered at the school. If the major is offered, make sure that the professors teaching in that major are qualified to give the parent and/or student the best quality education available.

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

Before i came to this school i wished I would have known that the faculty and staff are so lazy. Mainly the Administrative staff are the ones that are lazy. I also wish I would have known that the quality of the cafeteria food, along with the quality of technology equipment is very poor.

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

Giving advice is never a waste, but not recieving it is. Not going to class, not doing a term paper, and most of all not studying, now that's a waste. I would have to tell them to make sure that the college offers your field of choice. Make sure that the student-teacher ratio is something you can handle, and is that campus too big or small. I would tell them to make sure that the college meets their academic requirements, don't settle for who accepts you, go for the school that you know will help you, and if you do choose the first school that accepts you, make sure all of your credits will transfer. Choosing a school that won't contridict your personal life is never easy. If you research the school and take campus/classroom tours, you should be fine.

What's unique about your campus?

the best thing about my school is that the classes are not too far from the dorms.

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

Embarking on the academic journey of higher learning, in my opinion, should be treated like the adoption process. College provides that real life experience in the absence of direct parental guidance. Parents know they have instilled strong values in their child, but they need to put their child in an institution that is conducive to maturation into adulthood. College campuses are more than sanctuaries of academia. The most important lessons learned by college students usually do not take place in the classroom. Parents need to do serious research on the universities they plan on releasing their children to for college. They need to be aware of on campus activities as well as what goes on in the area surrounding the institution. Parents give their lives investing in their children so they should be careful who they release their investment to. We live in a technologically savy society, students need to use their social networks to get inside information. Taking tours of campuses helps, but parents should know they are not seeing the true institution, but a superficial representation orchestrated for the sole purpose of getting your money. Research and communicating with current students is imperative to selecting the right college.

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

Before I came to school I wish someone would have told me to save as much money as possible.

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

Finding the right school depends on the students enviroment he or she is used to. Do not put a student in a fast paste school if they are not able to handel it. If the the school is much to slow and your child needs something more challengeing seek out that type of school. If you can help it make sure that you find out all finacial aid requirements before you enroll. It would probally be a good idea to go to the school and sit in for a week or so, do that once or twice before your child leaves high school. Maybe even set up somthing so your child could get the exsperience of attending college. One last thing try to find as much money for school as you can. Because having to work and attending school can be hard on a student, and can affect their GPA.

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

The worst thing at my school would be that some of the classes I wish to take are during the wrong time of year or sermester.

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

Parents should be involved with the students choice, but don't make the decision for them. The only way that your student will enjoy their college experience and make the most of it is if its their decision. But be sure to explore all options and speak with advisors at your highschool as well as at the colleges or universities that are being considered. Be sure they offer classes that are the right size that will be best for the student's learning style. Also be sure that the student's desired major and/ or minor are offered at that particular school.

What's unique about your campus?

The closeness of the people and how everyone is willing to help. I also love the setting; its not too large and I don't just feel like a number. My professors are wonderful and because of the smaller classes I'm able to get in my questions and I'm able to comprehend better.

What kind of person should attend this school?

anyone looking to move forward in life. To better themselves and push towards obtainable goals. Anyone that has a clear view of a career for there future. MIles College is a community of people making a conscious effort to help you move forward in life. It feels like an extended family; from the students to the professors. Its a wonderful school.

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

The advice that I would share with parents and students about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience is to encourage the students to apply to every college that has majors that they have any kind of interest in. Then visit the college and take a tour. After the tour, just show up another day just to see what the campus is really like. Allow the student to sit in on a professor that they may take when attending the school to find out if they can learn from the professor. Most importantly, make sure that Financial Aid is applied for, admission requirements are complete, and the cost for school tuition and expenses are complete. In addition, attending college is different from highschool, so in order to be successful students must prioritize. Most importantly, if you're going to pay for your education, the least you can do is to make sure your professors are giving you the best beneficial education possible, and college is not all about work so have safe clean fun for a good balance.

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

The worst thing about our school is the attitudes of certain people in the Business and Registrars offices. Other than that, Miles College is the Best HBCU in the state of Alabama.

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

When telling my friends about my school, I brag on our Honors Curriculum Program which helps us compete against top notch schools and prepares us for our career. I also brag about our mandatory study hall for softball players. Last but not least, I brag about how our division chair cares so much about the Biology, Math, and Computer Science students because we have the most technologically advanced equipment and computer labs.
