Don't be so uptight. Get out there and meet friends right away. And yes, your mom and dad were right about a lot of things.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very diverse, and extend from the people i hang out with on a day to day basis, all the way to the people whom i normally would not have been great friends with having not been paired as lab partners.

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

One of the biggest changes in the transition from high school to college is the level of independence in the student. Once coming to college i realized that my parents are no longer around, and i had to make my own decisions for my own well being. Much as i realized my parents were gone, i soon found that the teachers act in a similar manner. During high school teachers are constantly on students about which assignments are due, and on which days, however, in college, each student is handed a syllabus at the beginning of the semester, and is expected to follow that for the course's duration. If i could go back and discuss college with my high school self, i would talk about the difference in what faculty expects of the student in high school, and in college. Over coming this challenge was one of my biggest obstacles, but without learning it, i would be no where near where i am today. Talking to my high school self would allow me to have a jump start on the transition into college, and would further my success that much more.

What's unique about your campus?

Milwaukee School of Engineering is known for having a placement rate of 100%, and that was a big thing that brought me to this school. Having the cnofidence of finding a job when i graduate means a lot to me, and to many others attending this school. The trimester system is used, so students are able to start major oriented courses right away, and see that it is the field they would like to do, and obtain a career in that field, inlike many other colleges, whose tracks are filled with genereal classes, and not major oriented.

Take a tour of the campus, better yet try to be a part of a shadow day if they offer it. Go to the school, talk to the students and take what they have to say seriously. They know the school inside and out and can probably tell you if you would like the school just by talking to you for a little while.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe that the best thing about this school is the close interaction with the proffessor and student. Every proffessor i have had still knows my name and asks how I am doing and some even ask what I wish they would have taught us more of.

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

Find somewhere where you'll be happy--somehwere that offers all of the things you love to do. Students: be sure that the choice you make for school is yours and no one else's. Parents: be sure that the "right" school in your book is actually the school which your student wishes to attend. If the campus life isn't exactly what your students wants, the chances of a drop-out are far more likely. In the end, this ends up being more expensive for you. All in all, the most important thing is that the student is happy at their school.

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

I would definitely tell anyone who is trying to find the right college to choose the school they want to go to. Don't let anyone influence your decision; not your friends, family, or financial situation. You need to pick the best school for YOU. I can imagine it'd be pretty tough to wake up and go to class every morning at a school you hated. As for making the most of the college experience, I would just say do your best in every situation that comes your way. Whether it be with your classes, a sports team, or new people, if you put yourself out there and give it your all, good things will come to you. It's supposed to be the best years of your life!

What's unique about your campus?

I would consider the job placement rating the best part of Milwaukee School of Engineering. That's definitely the reason I'm in college after all.

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

Choose a college on the major you think you would enjoy to do the rest of your life, dont choose it just because it promises you a good salary after graduation. I would strongly encourage taking college visits, and ask some of the students that attend the school already about what they like and dislike about the college.

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

Having tri-mesters because so much information is thrown at you so fast, and there is a 50% drop out rate and most of your credits dont transfer because MSOE uses tri-mesters

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

We have tri-mesters so the school is very fast pace and drains you, and you have a least one test every other week. I pay about $25,000 dollars a year all by financial aid, which is rediculous compared to other colleges.

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

Do your research by visiting the colleges that your are interested in attending. Attend any open houses that the school might offer and talk with the professors and current students at the colledge and get their opinions of the school. Particularly, talking ot the attending students at an open house will help to answer your questions you may have about the school and aid in your decision making process. Touring the facility is also desireable. When you do decide on a college and are now in attendance, make the most of all that is offered to you as a student there. Don't be afraid to speak to the professors if you need help or are exeperiencing difficulty with a class - they are human and most often encourage the student to seek help if help is needed. Also, college is first and foremost a place of learning so studies should be taken seriously. Get yourself into a good study routine and also allow some time for yourself to enjoy the extras that the college has to offer as well and you will enjoy your time there and will make friends that will last a lifetime.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The Milwaukee School of Engineering is mostly known for their engineer students who come out of school with a job lined up before even graduating. The placement rate of this school is very high. Most of the top engineers in many different fields have graduated from The Milwaukee School of Engineering.

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

For parents and stuents who are searching for the right college and making the most of college experience have to think about the surroundings of the school along with if the school will fullfill there interests. I beleive having surroundings that fit your personality is just as important as the school fullfilling the students interests. Without the right surroundings and activities that fit your lifestyle, students are more likely to get into things that are not smart ideas. Also, having the surroundings that fit your lifestyle allows the student to focus more on school work and never get bored. Another good pointer is knowing exactly what you want to major in before going into your first year. This will help the student focus on their studies more than "which party am I going to tonight?" It will also give the student a jump start over the other students attending the same school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is career driven and knows exactly what they want in the future. You must be dedicated to your studies and want to succeed.

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

Look for a college that fits your personality and learning style. Also, do your homework on each college to determine which one will give you the best bang for your buck. Job placement is a big factor that should be looked at and make sure you understand what that statistic is refering to. Most important, have fun and enjoy the college life because it should be fun as well as a learning experience.

What's unique about your campus?

The job placement rate is amazing and this is what attracted me to the school. The technology program and labs are cutting edge for the theory you learn in the classrooms. When you graduate there is no learning curve from school to the work force. The small class sizes allow you to get one on one learning.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I feel like everything is being shoved down my throat. There are times which can be stressful do to the amount of work at any given time. The lack of females at my school is kind of depressing too.

MSOE provides a high-quality education, but it is a very challenging school - not for the faint-hearted.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

MSOE provides a high-quality education, but it is a very challenging school - not for the faint-hearted.

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

Parents and students should look for a school that has activities that the student will enjoy being a part of but that will not override their academic experience. They should look for a place that will focus on helping the student grow into a successful, mature adult that can hit the ground running when they enter the work world, but a place that encourages the formation of meaningful relationships and treasured memories as well. It is important to enter into an environment where the student will not become lost in a crowd and disappear as a number. It is important that they be able to connect with other students and faculty that will be friends and mentors throughout their college experience, and potentially, the rest of their life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who likes to spend more time partying than studying or someone who does not have good time-management skills or someone who wishes to meet tons of women should not come to this school.
