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

The advice I would give to parents and students about finding the right college would be to look for a college that is known for what they are majoring in. I have found that the professors and advisers have a better understanding of what is being taught, and what is required for the major and the order the classes need to be taken in order to graduate on time. However, if this is not possible (and even if it is) it's a good idea become informed. By informed I mean knowing what classes are offered fall and spring semester (is it just one or both) and knowing when they are offered (every year or every other year). It's not always easy for advisors to keep track of every indivdual so take responsibility. I would say the best way to make the most of their college experience would be to get involved. I'm not saying join every group but join one or two. Don't make the mistake of becoming a "mole" and stay locked up in the dorm or apartment. Studing is essential to doing well in college, but don't let it define who they are.

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

Above all else, be honest with yourself throughout the entire process. Be honest, not only in deciding on what major you choose, but what school you go to. See what colleges work best for you personally, regardless of cost, prestige, or location. Certainly keep in mind what is said about what your college has to offer in your particular field(s) of interest, but when it boils down to it, choose which one feels most right for you. I've seen far too many people be forced into expensive, private schools who really wanted the down-to-earth, friendly environment my college provides. I've also seen many people choose majors unfit for them, simply because they thought that's what others expect of them. No lifestyle, no job, no major is fit for everyone, so there's no reason to assume that a college must be defined through its prestige alone. Do everything you can beforehand to get to know each college intimately, and watch how responsive each college is to providing you with ways to do that, whether through tours, interviews with departments, etc. Through this process, you can learn what's best for *you.*

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People focused on a sports-oriented or prestigious environment shouldn't attend. People who don't like harsh winters or small cities or towns.

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

The friendly environment of the campus, awesome professors, (they're like a little family,) and the accessibility of the academic advisors and staff. Also, the natural environment of the campus looks beautiful in any season, even winter. The small campus size is easy to access, and the set-up of the buildings is simple and efficient.

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

When selecting a college it is best to tour several universities, look at class options, and visit with professors in your major. College is what you make of it; make an effort to make friends, get to know your professors personally, and develop good study habits. Make wure to read your course syllabus for each class and put due dates of papers and tests into your planner so that you are not surprised. Study each day so that you are never caught by surprise with quizzes or tests that you are unprepared for. Join some student activity groups. It is a wonderful way to meet people and helps keep students involved in worth while projects. Also, joining a student group of your desired profession is an excellent way to learn more about careers of interest.

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

Minnesota State University-Moorhead was a great school to attend; it has a moderate sized student body but class size is small so everyone gets the benefit of the attention of dedicated professors.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A student who is not motivated to do well academically should not attend this college. While the university does everything in its power to provide assistance to students with learning disabilities, the professors and peers have little tolerance for students who do not do their work or habitually hand in late assignments.

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

Finding the right college can be a hard process. When you are doing college visits, one will stand out to you. Go with that one. If you really want to make friends, I would recommend going to a smaller school where the class sizes are smaller and you have more personal conversations. When you are in college, join clubs and groups that seem interesting to you. Put yourself out there and try to make friends. When you walk into the cafeteria, instead of sitting by yourself, sit at a table with a group of people you don't know. Also, while you are in class, chat with they people that are sitting next to you. If you are struggling in a class, ask people to make a study group with you. If you are having trouble in a class...I guarantee others are too!! Don't be shy...ask your teachers tons of questions. The library is your friend, go there often. It is quiet and they also have internet so you can facebook in between study breaks! Have fun in college and try new things! College is the best 4 years of your life!!

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

The desks in a lot of the classrooms are TINY!!! They are hard to do homework on.

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

Make sure you like the campus and feel like you could fit in and everything else with come with it. All students come worried about making friends, but once you start a conversation with one person or at least say hi to someone then it gets easier to make friends and after a little while you will have lots of great people to share the college experience with.

They are for the most part friendly, some are too politically involved and it interferes with my studies.

Figure it out early, and make as many trips to schools as possible; get a wide view of the college life.

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

Tour as many places as you think you may want to go and while there, talk to students who currently do go there. Getting a feel for the campus and how students see it will help you get an idea of what is the right fit for you. Just looking at a brouchure does not do the campus justice. Personally, I almost went to a school based on what I thought it was like, until I went on a tour and found out the truth. Also, dont just go wherever your friends are going. If you want to meet new people, it is way easier when you branch out.

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

The importance of making sure that what I was going to school for was right for me. After working for a degree for 2 years only to change it, i will now spend an extra year or 2 working to finish my major and 2 minors.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The online classes offered make it hard to keep up with them along with other classes. Some programs require online classes, but it doesnt seem like students gain much from them. Yet, some programs are growing more and more online every year.

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

Find a college that offers all the programs that you have any interest in. Most people don't know exactly what they want to do so selecting a college with a number of possibilities that interest you is a must.

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

I would tell others to go with what they feel is best for them. Don't go to a school just because all your friends are going there. Base your decision on which school will be the best for your major. As for making the most of your college experience, get involved with student activities. Most schools offer such things as sororities or fraternities, sports, intramurals, clubs, etc. Don't take your college years for granted.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I don't really find anything all that frustrating.
