My school underwent a name change a few years back, from the University of Missouri-Rolla to Missouri University of Science and Technology, and that change illustrates exactly the traits for which my school is renowned. Missouri University of Science and Technology produces some of the brightest scientific and engineering-minded individuals in this country; we are an island of innovation and science in an otherwise agriculturally-focused state. Our solar car team competes against Ivy League schools. Our student body is diverse. The STEM education here is truly world-class, and student's pride couldn't be higher.
Some of the best advice I could give myself is to practice time management. It's something so simple, but it can be the difference between dirty laundry and clean laundry or an A grade exam and a B grade exam. I had no idea how much time a single subject requires to fully grasp. Another thing I'd like to tell a younger me is to not stress about making friends the first week. Most people are generally friendly, and it's easy to get forced into a group with whom you have a poor connection.
Our student body is more than willing to make room for people of all backgrounds and interests. While it may seem that my school is angled toward a certain type of individual, a niche exists for everyone. If a student desires to learn and to express who they are, Missouri University of Science and Technology will develop and nurture that student's talents. If a student is from another nation, we have a diverse and supportive community to aid in their transition. Further, there isn't a single employer who scoffs at a degree from our university.

I would advice myself to be very wise and very open minded. Ther is more responsibilities in life than you would think. I would advice myself to stay more focus on my work and being around the right crowd of people. I would advice myself to not fall into peer pressure and not allow negativety to get in my way and hender me from becoming successful. Life is what you make it so make the best of it but do it the right way and become successful.

If I had the chance to go back in time and talk to myself as a senior my biggest advice would have been to go above and beyond. When I say, go above and beyond, I wish I would of taken high school more seriously and completed more classes that would futher me in my college career, even before starting college. I see students walking around campus half way through their degrees because they took the time as high school seniors to take the writing 121 class or buisness 131. I don't regret the decisions I made in high school because I have come out on top, still attending college where most studnets have lost the drive to want to go to school. I would let my past self know not procrastinate when it comes to school work. Getting behind in college is not a good thing and can quickly get anyone into a lot of trouble trying to catch up. Out of everything, I'd tell my past self to enjoy what college has to offer. Don't be so quick to turn down opportunites, they may lead to bigger and better things.

The University of Missouri-Rolla if full the best and brightest from all over the world. Like every school there are those who strive to succeed and those who strive to simply get by. This school by far has the most people with not only the intelligence to proceed but also the willingness to grind through every paper, every lab, and every homework assignment with gusto.
The decision you are making right now will shape the entirety of your life. There is no getting this time back. Make a decision and stick to it. There will be those who question your every move so be confident in every decision you make and cling to them like they were words out of the holy book. Invest your time in everything that progresses you to be the best you absolutely can. If it is not beneficial avoid it at all cost. Laziness is a virus. Very contagious and once you have contracted it is impossible to cure. The destination is not the only goal; the last few steps of a journey are not the hardest or the most important. The steps with the most importance are then ones directly in front of you. Be sure to only look at the past like a rearview mirror. If you focus all your attention on it you will crash but if you never look back life will sneak up on you. Most importantly remember the reasons you make every decision. With every choice comes a consequence and some consequences although necessary are difficult to bare.
Being smart is not a requirement to go this school. Having intelligence and the ability to learn is another story all together. To thrive at this institution it is necessary to want success more than you want the benefit of the diploma. Laziness is more than frowned upon it is shunned similar to a leper by both peers and more importantly professors. The outcome as to exactly how lazy beings are treated at this school can be inferred by this. Overall the only necessity to conquer this school is the willingness to do whatever it takes for every assignment.
My classmates are all highly motivated in math and science and could be easily described as "nerds".

Congratulations on surviving to your senior year of high school. I know that being a senior has given you a sudden burst of confidence, mainly because you no longer have to be intimidated by upperclassmen. My advice is to hold on to that confidence. Don’t be ashamed of the fact that you love calculus, embrace it. Also, stay focused on school and don’t stress about other things too much. I know you feel like you have to be a perfect dancer or a perfect flutist. What you will realize as you begin college is that those activities were merely ways for you to express your creative energy. Let’s face it there is no way you could survive the stressful life of a performing artist. You have always excelled in academics and your place in life is a steady career where you can apply all that you have learned. College will get you there. So, don’t be scared of moving so far from home, being at Missouri S&T will only increase your burst of confidence and help you realize that you have the strength to tackle life’s many challenges. Have fun and good luck!
The best thing about my school is the fact that most of the students here are people who actually enjoy subjects like math, which many people despise. Math has always been one of my favorite subjects and being around other people who enjoy it as well has allowed me to find confidence in myself and realize that liking math is a great thing that I should be proud of istead of something I should hide.

Lori, You are naive and sheltered. Please listen closely. You will have four beautiful children in your lifetime, and you will love them with every ounce of your being. There will be nothing you won't do for them. Please spend the next years studying--you will need money to truly enjoy life, and to give your babies the life and example they deserve. I love you, Longo P.S. You will have 3 girls and 1 boy. Cherish them always.

If i was able to go back in time and tell myself about college i would tell myself to learn time management. When your in high school you have people telling you what to do, bells signal when you shoud leave and go to class, et. In college you don't have that you have to rely on yourself and if you hvae poor time management, its really hard.

I attend the University of Portland, it is unique in that it provdies a lot of opportunities for study abroad (50% of students study abroad) and for education majors it allows you to work with classrooms as early as freshman year (most schools wait until senior year). It is also great in that they really encourae service, and provide a lot of opportunities to volunteer in the local community of Norh Portland, as well as areas around the country and abroad.
That I can double major and study abroad and graduate on time, that the campus is gorgeous, and that as an elementary education major I can work in classrooms as early as freshman year, and thus gain invaluable experience.

Your classmates here are more often than not going to be very helpful people of which understand and sympathize with your struggles, as well as help you get past them. The people I've come to know here are a great bunch, and one never goes around forgotten here.
It's a highly difficult school to attend, but very well worth the effort. The coursework is brutal, but the challenge is satisfying, and there are very few institutions where the enterprising student can develop connections to employers like MST.
Knowing what I know now, I would tell my past self several things. First, as difficult as it may seem, never procrastinate and waste time on any assignment, no matter how trivial. I can't count the amount of times I've seen people fail out because of poor time management. Second, always be sure to get a good amount of sleep each day. Running on five hours every day is a very brutal way to go through college, so planning time effectively can allow for the sleep one needs to function. Third, get to know the people around you. The people you can find here are a greatly diverse bunch, with skillsets as unique as their personalities. Perhaps others have the skills that you lack? In such a case, ask for their help in acquiring such skills for yourself. This way, you can do a bit of learning from places you may never have realised. If I would have known these things coming in to college, I guarantee I would have done quite a bit better.

It is a diverse culture of students and top-quality faculty that focuses on academia, giving back to the community, and promoting lasting relationships with others on campus.
If I could go back in time, I would advise my high school senior self to enjoy the learning process and all that school has to offer. Learning can be fun if we open our minds and embrace the experience. Enjoy being in school and take advantages of the opportunities it affords you - big-girl life will happen soon enough!
I wish I had known that I would be accepted, regardless of age or anything else.
