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

Make sure the campus has a focus in your chosen field. Understand if you (or your child) are interested in graduate school or career placement. Certain schools focus on different aspects for "after university". While intentions and career decisions may change, going in with a clear plan will help your advisor and the school know how to help you. Make the most of your college experience by being involved with your department and the extracurriculars the school offers. These will look good on either job or graduate school resumes.

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

Lack of research focus ans opportunities.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those who really want to focus on their studies or work with the best proffesors in their chosen field.

Visit the college. Don't be afraid to ask questions or talk with any of the professors. They are their to help you decide what path for you is best and will help you to succeed in the future and in finding the job that you will wake up in the morning and want to go to. Don't be afraid to go to a college where you don't know anyone, you will meet people there who are a lot like you and may end up being the best of friends for the rest of your life. Get involved. Try something new! Maybe that one class will give you more insight in to who you are than you realized. Clubs and sports are a great way to meet people and to help you stay focused during your time away. Get to know your professors and be sure they know who you are. You are more likely to get the help you need if you ask for it and make an effort to succeed in that class. Enjoy yourself! Find something you'll love to do and do it.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is willing to learn and is not afraid to exposed to a more hands on way of learning. Someone who enjoys getting involved in their classes and is willing to go out on a limb and do something out of their comfort zone. Definitely someone who enjoys the smaller classes and getting to know their professors.

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

I would like to give parents and students the following advice about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience: Research the school and the program(s) that your are interested in and find out someone from your area that is going or had gone to the school to find out what they liked and disliked about the school. I would also suggest that they spend time at the school and areas around the school to know ahead of time what there is to do and see and explore. I would also advise them to look at the housing options, weather issues, and think long and hard about the how the time at college will be spent. I would also advise them to consider as many of the possible issues they may have , for example, car problems, money problems, etc., and how they would or could be solved. Also, it would be great to find other students from their hometown to bond with until they are able to make friends at school. The final advise I would give someone that would like to make the most of their college experience is to be involved in everything.

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

The lack of parking in the areas around the school

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Not being able to get information from administrative people about financial aid or career counseling that would be helpful to me.

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

The best advice that I could give to students and parents about finding the right college is to keep your options open. Make sure to apply to lots of colleges and go on lots of college visits before you decide where you want to go. Also, be involved as much as you possibly can with campus activities and organizations to make the most of your college experience.

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

I wish that I would have known the surrounding area a little better.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Very liberal, artsy kind of school in a city type setting, but it still feels like a small town because of the amiability of people in the community.

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

Make sure you look at the community the college is in, as well as the college itself. you'll be living in that area for four years, so you want to make sure you like leaving campus sometimes too! :)

What's unique about your campus?

small class sizes, and professors who are willing to help/vouch for you when needed. also, challenging course work that isn't too incredibly daunting, but still teaches you a lot.

Let students choose the school they want to go to, have them look into things they are interested in and find what school's are best suited for those interests. Don't force your opinions on them, they are growing up. It's okay to let them. In the end they will be happier where they end up and enjoy the experience more.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Make sure that you have all the facts about the colleges you will be applying for. In order to get the best scholarship offers, hold off actually enrolling so that the schools will up their antes to get you as their student. My mother and I played it safe when I applied and as a result, I was unable to get the scholarships my brother has now been offered because he waited. Once you are in college, make the most of it. You are paying a lot of money to be there, so you're only cheating yourself out of hard-earned money if you skip class or fail a course. In the end, you are competing against yourself to get the best education. It doesn't matter if other people are smarter than you or get better grades than you. At graduation time, all that matters is you did your bst and worked your hardest to learn how to see the world in a different light.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who can self-motivate and look for answers. Our administration sucks with organization, so be prepared to do the paperwork for all scholarships or financial aid to ensure your money comes through.

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

I would advice parents and potential students to make a list of non-negotiables, must have qualities, before checking out a university or college. It is good to have a general idea of what you are looking for when you begin looking.

What's unique about your campus?

It's small enough so it's not overwhelming, but large enough that there is diversity and a plethera of great acedemic programs.

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

be sure to check out the total cost and be prepared to assist with some homework or tutoring costs if needed to assist your child in retaining the best possible results for the education choice. be sure that your child is mature enough to leave home and follow the rules of the school as I have seen quite a few kids get into trouble due to not being mature enough to handle these decisions on their own. Make more than one trip to the school and visit with many different students to get a better scope of the whole school experience.
