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

I would get experience in the construction and design industry before going to school. For example, I would have taken more drafting classes in high school, or job shadowed an engineer. I also would have taken more advanced physics classes. Also, I would have applied for more scholarships!!

What's unique about your campus?

Small school, small class sizes

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

Take some time to figure out what you want to do in college. Take some classes that interest you so you can better figure out what you want to do and who you want to be in life.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school is focused on primarily the engineering students, so the other majors don't get enough time or attention.

95% of the people I have class with are very friendly and help with any questions I have.

I will tell myself to learn how to take better notes and study more. I would also say college is tough, study harder and don't quit.

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

I think the school it getting too liberal. I am a non-smoker but they just banned all tabacco from campus. To me this is wrong, they single out one group to please another.

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

The transfer from high school to college is a major step in growing-up and being on your own in the world. As we learned in high school grades are the most important part in becoming a successful student. Hard work, dedication and self reflection are a huge part of getting good grades and becoming the successful student desired. At times there will be a good decision to be made as well as a bad decision, its all about making the good decisions and not letting others peer perssure you into making the wrong (bad) decision. Doing what you need to do is the first step in becoming successful, not only as a student but in life as well.

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

The job placement rates, and the fun environment around school activities.

Explore! College offers a vast array of opportunities from which you can learn about yourself, what you are good at, and what you like. Both socially and academically, don?t allow your past experiences to define the path of your future. If a door opens for you, walk through it. Don?t stop to wonder if it fits into your career plans. Some practical advice: -Eat a well balanced diet. For example, don?t eat a bag of jelly bellies for dinner... at least not on a regular basis. -Exercise! I know you hate it, but it really does make you feel good. -If the door that is opening for you happens to always lead to a bar, don?t keep walking through it. -Go out on lots of dates, but not with jerks. -Go to class and do the homework. It?s way easier to learn something if you follow this simple plan!

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

I suggest that parents and students look for a school that has a good balance of school life and social life. Montana tech is good about balancing these in the first three years, but your fourth year in engineering is dedicated to gaining "real-world" experience as quickly as possible, and it seems that leaves no time for the social life that was once enjoyed. I suppose my next suggestion would follow that potential parents and students should talk to a graduating senior to get an inside look into the degree program and the requirements for graduation.

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

I wish I would have known where to find friends that didn't drink.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

someone who is not willing to work will not succeed. Also people who drink too much.

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

Parents need to be supportive of thier kids and help them find schools that study what the student wants to learn, not what the parent wants them to learn. Sit down with the kids at the beginning of thier senior year and talk about what the kids want to study and then look for colleges online, that fit your criteria for a good college. Dont base college on just the price or location either, they are factors but not the only factors. Also have the students take tests online to see what kinds of carreers they may be good at. Students when you get to college have a postive attitude about it. Be friendly and make friends with people in your classes. Join clubs so you can make more friends and do something you enjoy doing. Dont be afraid to ask for help when you need it. If you feel like what you are studying isnt right for you, dont feel bad about looking into and switching degrees or even schools. You are the one who is going to be going to class and having a career in whatever field you pick and you should love it.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Off the campus there isnt alot to do in the town and it can get dull if you arent creative.

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

When sending your child to school, make sure that you size the school to your child. In essence, if your child is social, a smaller school might be adventagous due to the fact that at a large school there is always a lot more going on that can drag a student away from studying. Also, make sure that the school fits in with their value set. You would'nt want you child to go to a school where the value set differs drastically from their own. A samller school also offers the advantage of small class sizes and if nothing else attending a small school is a good way for a student to ease their way into college while being able to get the pre-requiset classes out of the way.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Tech is the small class sizes and teachers who know your name and care about how well you are doing. The 95%+ placement rate for jobs is also an awesome thing about Tech.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone looking for a strong engineering degree and a great job coming out of college. Also, anyone who loves the outdoors with access to the continental divide, national forests and lakes and rivers all within a half hour of campus.

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

Start your college search early. Find other people that have attended schools that you are interested in. Apply early to all your choices in order to save application fees. (often the university have early no or low-cost application). If you enjoy the outdoors, look for a place that offers opportunities to explore in close proximity. Once you start your college career, don't load yourself on credits the first year. Being away from home can be overwhelming so don't add extra stress by taking on too large a load. If it is at all possible, don't work for the first year, except maybe on campus. Expect a lot of late nights studying. Eat heathy, Exercise, make friends that are like-minded. Get involved with campus activties to meet people. Stretch yourself. Keep in contact with your folks, and be honest about your stuggles. Pray Pray Pray

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

Make sure you find a school that you know you will like instead of one you think you might like. Make sure you check out the campus before committing to a school, and make sure they have to degree program that you really want to go into. Don't settle on a school just because it might be close to home or that it might be a little less expensive.
