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

The best advice I can give is to visit all the schools you're interested in and even a couple schools that are in your price range that maybe haven't really sparked your interest yet. You never know, you could love the school once you visit. It's a lot about finding a school where you feel comfortable. All universities have good education programs or they wouldn't be universities. You have the find the best fit for you and usually that's more about where you'll be living, who you'll be living with, and the town where you'll call home for the next four or five years of your life. Find a place that is comfortable to you and you'll have nothing to worry about!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Getting outside sources of financial aid to come in on time. That's not really Missouri State's fault though.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

People come here to party. This place is run by the Greeks, the Liberals, and anyone other than educationally-based, religious learners.

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

Find out who you are, then pick a school that matches your personality. I know that the world may be overrun by different people, but instead of blindly accepting and conforming to differences, one should learn how to defend their beliefs and ideas rather than learn to best become a herd animal. What are your politcal views? your religious views? your personal involvement with society? Surround yourself in a place that matches you--not a place that wants you to match them.

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

...that there is a difference between education and college. In other words, I didn't know that I was going to be teaching myself instead of being taught.

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

I would tell parents to encourage students to apply to as many school as they can, even to ones that they think they would only get into in their wildest dreams. This is the beginning of their individual lives, encourage them in whatever decision they make. Just make sure it is their own decision, because you want your child to make this experience their own.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wants to get a great education.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There is not a lot of diversity.

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

Missouri State is a medium-sized melting pot school; it is very easy to feel accepted and at home here, while also receiving a quality education.

When picking a college, make a campus visit to each prospective school before making a final decision. This allows you to get a feel for the academic atmosphere as well as the social aspect of each school. Try to remember that, while it probably is a factor, cost should not be the ultimate deciding factor. Every college has financial aid opportunities, check them out! The first thing I would advise about making the most of the college experience is to get active at your school right away. Being involved on campus allows you to meet a lot of different people and also to better your school, community, or what have you. Get involved, and stay involved. Don't be afraid to reach out for help from classmates, floormates, professors, anyone who can help you succeed academically. Forming study groups or just studying with a partner are great ways to prepare. Your first year away can be stressful, and even a little scary, but remember that there are many, many students going through the same thing you are. Never be afraid to ask for help. Make the most of your college experience!

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

I believe the worst thing about Missouri State is that a lot of attention is put on sororities and fraternities. As a young woman who has no intention of joining a sorority, I feel slightly out of place. However, I do have many friends who are in sororities and fraternities.
