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

The advice I would give myself if I were to go back in time would be to take school more seriously. I would tell myself to stick with it and still give it my all even for my senior year. I would also tell myself to try and take a few AP classes so that I could start at higher level classes in college to save time and money.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Some one who wants to save some money and be able to work or live at home should attend Mcc.

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

The advice I would give to mtself would be to never give up. I have always wanted to be a Nurse. It is my passion and when I see Seniors from High School who just enver put forth the effort to go to School and make a difference. Knowing what I know now about College life and making the transiton, the good advice would be stay in school and graduate. The way the ecomony is today and the job market. You will need a College Degree and more. So, to all the High School Student out there, be somebody, amke a diffefrence, make your parents proud, and not onlt that make yourself proud. The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think one person might not want to sign up to attend this College is a person that is not sure of his or her self. It is important to want to go to College and be successful. It is important to make it happen, if fnot then wht bother.

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

I brag most about the professors. They are fantastic. I'm proud be hear great things from other people that have attend Monroe Community College and can give thoughts and opinions about their experience there.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates were very diverse and friendly. Most classmates communicated with each other, especially if someone had a question or was having troubles with a particular course. Some of my classmates approached me for help and I would approach otheres when I needed help.

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

Ariel, Take it easy. You think you want to be a doctor but life choices and experiences will lead you where you are suppose to be. I know you are beating yourself up for denying that small scholarship to University of Rochester, but don't. You only applied to Monroe Community College and maybe you should have applied to more colleges to broaden your options, but Monroe Community College is good for you. You love to help people and you will do just that at MCC. You will find yourself above the average college student there academically but that's okay. This will give you the chance to help people with their grades and meet new friends. You may want more challenging classes but MCC will provide you with the basics that you think you already know but you really don't. Don't put MCC below you because it is honestly over your financial standings; don't put anything below you. You need to work your way up and you will do exactly that. You will be able to work and go to school and save money. Don't take a single day or class for granted. Always smile.

What's unique about your campus?

Monroe Community College was an easy transition from High School to College but is an extremely well known Community College around the nation. You receive the education you need for a fraction of the price and class sizes as a university.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

My school has the most amazing dorms, which were built within the past 10 years. The dorms are huge and they give you an amzing experience to meet new people through all of the activities and events. Mnroe Community college also has great professors, for a much lower price. My professors and advisors have helped me so much already to figure out what path I want to take in order to acheieve my career and further schooling goals.

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

If I could go back in time to my senior year of high school, I would tell myself to work harder on applying for scholarships. I am extremely happy with my choice to go to community college, but if i had scholarships for it, my pursuit to go to a University in the future would have been much less expensive. Scholarships are an extremely important part of college that you ignore as a senior because you are excited about starting a new life and having freedom. I recently went to my high school and told this advice to current seniors so that they can keep in mind how important it is to research ways to pay for college.

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

I wish that I knew how many people lived so close. Obviously, since it is a community college, people live close, however, it is tricky on weekends and breaks when people go home and I cannot. I live in New Hampshire, therefore, going home is not possible for me on weekends. I wish I had thought about this ahead of time, but luckily I have extended family close-by that I stay with and work for when my friends go home.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

Huh this is difficult. I would say rude people. Its sort of accurate as i said earilar it seems like people don't have any manners.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

This is tricky as i am not really in acadmeic clubs. I can tell video gaming is popular. I see alot of people in the video game lounge. But also Anime club is fairly popular. Not in that one any more but yeah i am impressed how popular it is.

What are the academics like at your school?

So so. Some professors are jerks. But most of the ones i have had are really nice and helpful. They have alot of neat classes. Some that might even have opportunities to go abroad.

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

If I were to go back in time to my high-school self I would have a lot to say to myself. I'd sit high-school me and tell myself everything they should expect. I would tell myself to study hard, go get extra help every free chance I get. I'd tell myself to talk and create relationships with professors in the future because this can help improve on grades , understanding a class better, and professors love to feed knowledge to students. Another thing i would tell myself is to join clubs I'd enjoy because its a great way to meet new people wall doing something you love or something knew you have always wanted to try. Before I leave my high-school self I'd tell myself college just isn't about test, homework, studying, but you need to take the time in your college years to find out who you are as a person and who you want to be.

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

When first going to school I wish I knew how big the work load. I really did not take work seriously and it jeopardized the first half of the semester very badly for me, but now I try to stay on top of my work each and everyday.

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

The worst thing about school would have to be taking test. I have always had very bad test anxiety and free up during test and quizzes. I'll spend the whole night studying to only have the test put in front of me to draw a big white blank.

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

I would tell myself to go get my permit and license a lot earlier because commuting to college without a car and license would be a huge hassle. Relying on my grandmother and mother to drive me back and forth is not only a pain for them, but also a pain for me because I can't stay on campus for too long. I would tell myself to learn to manage my time better. It's true that the assignments aren't all too bad, but they are time consuming. I would remind myself that college is only as hard as I make it out to be, so I should focus on getting assignments done earlier and not procrastinate like I have done through high school. Procrastination will only make things harder for me. Also, the second most important advice to myself, sign up for classes as early as possible! This will help to avoid signing up for classes on the weekends and week nights. The most important advice is to not give up. You made it as a senior and you will make it to college. Keep going and don't look back.

What kind of person should attend this school?

As a person who wasn't too sure about what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go, I decided to go to Monroe Community College. Because I was unsure of which college I wanted to go to, MCC was a good option because I would be able to save money in the long run while still be able to continue my education and find what I want to do. A person who is unsure and still needs time to figure things out as well as not be financially able should go to MCC.

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

When I talk to my friends about my school, I tell them about the great marketplace that the school has. It includes a Subway and Dunkin' Donuts as well as other fantastic places to eat. There are many places around the school, lounges and study areas, that allow you to sit and study or hang out with your friends, make new friends.

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

Making the shift from High School to College was not as difficult for me as other people made it seem. If I could go back and tell myself one thing about college at the start of senior year, I would say that college is really "thirteenth grade". The only significant changes for me were the amount of homework assignments, the amount of people around me that I know only as strangers, and the freedom you experience without teachers over your shoulder rushing you to class all day. The advice I would give to myself as well as any other high schooler nervous about the shift would be to not stress. The homework is easily manageable if you budget your time; set aside a few hours every night and you will get it done I promise. Next I would advise everyone, outgoing or shy, to take a chance and talk to new people; look for people similar to yourself or friends and start a conversation, who knows where it will lead. Lastly I would tell myself to enjoy the freedom while it lasts; soon enough we'll be adults in the real world working towards even bigger and better things.

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

I wish I had known more about student activities on campus before I came to MCC.
