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

I would make a list of everything I wanted out of a college and look for universities. I wanted something that was on the smaller side, close enough to go home whenever I wanted but far enough away to where I still had my freedom, and a place that was very strong in my desired field, and thats exactly what I got in my school. Also, campus tours are amazing.

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

That this isn't high school, and that I actually had to apply myself. That just because I can do something doesn't necessarily mean I should. That my original major wasn't for me, before I wasted 2 years on it.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Summer classes dropped at the last minute.

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

Find as school that makes you feel at home. Forget about where your friends are going or the finances involved. The only thing that matters is that it makes you happy. When you get there, keep school a priority. You may get off track at times, but you learn from your mistakes.

What's unique about your campus?

I would consider the small stature of the campus to be the best thing about school. You feel as if you belong, rather than a speck on this Earth. If you don't know someone on campus, then most likely you have seen them around.

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

The fact that school is a "suitcase campus" is the worst thing. Every weekend a majority of the population goes home, most likely due to the lack of activities available to students.

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

Go on many college visits, visit interesting colleges more then once. Find that college that makes you feel happy and at home. If you are not comfortable on campus on a visit, you wont be comfortable attending there. Don't be afraid to stop students walking by you, they were in your shoes before. Look at the town/region the college is in, a tiny college in Appalachia is not right for everyone neither is a large Ivy League school. Also, don't limit yourself to the colleges where all your friends are going. You're going to make new friends. This is your life, your college, and your future. Once you move in to the new college students, be yourself, a lot of new students will think they can make a huge change just because this is a new school. If you're uncomfortable with yourself it will show. Make a few small changes but stay true to yourself. And lastly, do not be afraid to try new things. But remember some things aren't for everyone. Just don't forget you went to college to get an education above all else.

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

It is in the middle of no where. But it is still close enough to get to major cities and home in a few hours.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school requires you to run around to get every problem solved.

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

My advice would be the one that fits you the best. There is a place for everyone! Find one that has lots of school involvement and small classes for individual help. Asl where the students and staff are friendly to make your college experience worth it!

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

I wish I would have know how much I am going to be in debt when I graduate, I didnt realize how much it was to come here. I came here for a $250 cheerleading scholarship, and thats all the financial aid I recieve.

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

It is important not only to look at what the college can offer academically, but also the affordability. Morehead State University offers strong academics, affordable prices and life-long friends.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing is the class availability, friends and the teachers.

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

My school has an excellent teacher to student ratio. The teachers will know your name and will say hello to you when they see you around campus. They love teaching and want you to do the best you can.

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

The first thing you need to look at is the ratio of teacher to students in the classroom. You are there to learn and you need to make sure that the teacher will know who you are and is concerned about your grade. Also, go somewhere that has the right social or e.c activities that you want to take part in. and most importantly, pick the school that is right for you and what you want to do. It may not have a big name that society recognizes but it may have a big name in what you want to do. you just may notknow it yet.

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

About the town that surrounds it, or lack of. It turned out to be bette in the end because there is no distractions that would take me away from campus.

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

The school is rustic, old and backed into a mountain, but very nice and comfortable at different times of the year.

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

Look for the place that you like the most visually, academically, and socially. You won't always get a second chance so try to make the best of your first choice. Remember that things always go wrong somewhere, so be prepared to have to break out and act on your own to get things accomplished. It is a rough world out there but with the right help and enough planning you can figure it out.

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

I wish I had known how long the campus was since it is spread out in a cresant shape instead of a circle.

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

Before going to any collage, both the parents and student need to know their options and what they can afford. Students don't need the stress during school of worring how they're going to get the semester paid for. In the economic crisis america is in now, money is not has easy to come by anymore and finanical aid recieved is not enough for most families. Work on the scholarship based websites, visit the school before hand and see what they have to offer. For those who are going to attend a school a good drive away: BE PREAPRED! You will be on you own; there won't be parents around telling you to go to classes, do your homework, or your laundry. College is the time where students realize it's time to grow up and take care of their responibilities. Parents prepare your child by starting at home. Teach them to do thier laundry (yes, there are students who come to school are don't know how!!), show them how to cook so they don't have to depend on fast food, and most importantly... show them how to be responible with their money. And Good Luck!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about morehead is that it is a small town and community. For those who aren't so motivated in school being in the middle of no where has it's advantages, like the time to study instead of the go out everynight in the big cities. Everything that needed by a student is in walking distance, which is great for those who don't have a car.

What kind of person should attend this school?

To come here you must be goal/career oreinted and determined. This school(or college period) \ is not lke high school and it's not those communtiy colleges either. You do have to work as some of the classes to recieve a good grade, but it's not like you'll be stuck in your room all day. It will be all worh it the end.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Morehead State is best known for its name. It's a school name that many people laugh at when they hear it because of the sexual innuendo.

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

Go with your heart and follow your dreams! If you want to be something, you can; Just give it your all!!

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

I like to brag about my fraternity and the greek system and how close we all are. Pi Kappa Phi on our campus is the leading organization when it comes to grades, community service and brotherhood! Also, for being a small school we are decent at sports.

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

There are scholarships available. Don't necessarily worry about the money, worry about the quality of education that you are getting and the sense of purpose that college gives students.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that shouldn't attend this school is somebody that doesn't want a loving and caring environment about their education. They shouldn't attend if they don't like being involved in learning and making friendships that last forever.

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

I brag most about our music program. As I am a music student, I am biased. However, we have world class faculty that give us the tools to be better musicians and teachers in the Music Education field and Performance areas.
