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

Go to a college that is the size and preference that you like. For example if you like smaller town atmospheres go to a smaller school. Also, start a college fund even if its only 10$ a month! I didnt have that and my parents didnt go to college so they didnt know what to do and now i am so far in deft with loans and owe the school so much money I just dont know what to do but try and stay positive.

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

The financial aid help, I am completely broke and have no way to pay for school right now, and the campus involvement. Everyone goes home on the weekends because there is nothing to do here.

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

Your intended major is the biggest concern you should consider when looking for colleges. Smaller colleges, in my opinion, are the best options because the students have a better opportunity for one on one with the faculty. Extra-curriculars are also a big factor, because if you child is bored outside of class, they will be dissatisfied with their college experience, and they may not do as well as they could and/or should.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is interested in the arts, or education would be perfect for this university.

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

I have a little brother who is a junior in high school and I gave him this advice: Choose a school that fits. Don't pick it solely on atheletics (my mistake). Don't pick it cause your family tells you that's the right choice. Even if you are a partier, don't pick it because it has the best parties. Visit the campus, meet the students, and find a way to explore the campus life, on and off campus. The idea is to pick the school that is going to give you the college experience that YOU have always imagined, academically and socially.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the small class sizes and small campus life. I attended a large university previous to this one and it can be a little overwhelming.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you are looking diversity, it's not here. In the last two years that I have been they have made an effort to improve it, but it seems to be a losing battle. Also, if you're looking for a campus that is exciting on the weekend and on the weekday, then go somewhere else. Campus groups host many fun events during the week, but people tend to live close by and this wound be considered a suitcase college. Students tend to live on the weekends unless there is something really big going on or an athletic event.

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

What makes Morehead so unique is its size. it is big enough to accomplish what you want to do.Yet it is small enough that you are not a face in the crowd. most of my classes have less than 20 people in them. The professor knows who I am.

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

When looking for a college to attend ,I think the best thing to remember is this. Bigger is not always better. You should look for schools that have the program available that you want,then look at the smaller schools and communities. I feel smaller is better because you are not a face in the crowd. You have a name ,professors know you,and you tend to get a better education because of it. You want to get the most out of your time in college. This is the best way I feel to do it. Another reason why smaller is better is the community is smaller. The businesses know that you are there for a reason. They tend to help you out,and take care of you. The police force also tends to be more of a presence on campus,and there is less trouble. So don't always think bigger is better . Look at the small schools and communities . There just might be the right one for you in a little town near you.

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

When people ask about Morehead I brag about the new equine facilities. I also tell them I love it there because of the size of the school.

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

I would advise parents and students to visit as many campuses as possible so that they have a good understanding of what is offered. In my experience, a college may look good on paper but until you visit the campus you never really know what it is like. The best time to visit the campus is during the regular school week so that you can see what the college will be like on a regular basis. I found that it was best to set up a private tour of the campus instead of coming on an open house day because you were able to see a lot more and could ask more questions. Once you have chosen a school, make the most of it by getting involved. Most campuses have student activity boards that plan fun things for students throughout the week, so keep a sharp eye! I found that once you start putting yourself out there people will flock to you because almost everyone is just like you--nervous and looking to make friends. Most of all, don't be afraid to try new things and meet new people because that's what college is all about!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about this school are the small class sizes because your professors actually know who you are and show a personal interest in you.

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

The advice I would give would be to visit many universities and look for the the situation and place for that particular student. I believe that given the right environment anyone can succeed. The time you spend at college should not only be academic but be social and fun. If you won't enjoy your time at a particular university, I promise the academics will slip.

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

Morehead State University is a diverse, friendly, and relaxing environment for people to come from all over the world and work towards the advancement of their intelligence.

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

Go to all the school's you are looking at and make sure they fit right to you. If you know someone who attends the college, try and arrange an overnight visit so you can see the dorm rooms up close. Get involved early, whether through the greek community, SGA, church groups or major-related clubs, getting involved is important to making the most out of your college experience.

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

A quiet small town university that is predominately white/eastern Ketucky students who come from poorer backgrounds than other people.

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

No matter how much they tell you there?s no way you will ever be prepared. For every school you?re considering you should visit for an entire weekend. The things they never tell you about happen on the weekend. I?m not talking about the parties but the student activities, the studying. On the weekend you see the true living at school. If you feel you could find yourself living there for nine months, check into what degrees the school has to offer. Then consider what your interests are. Its true what ever your current interests are will have an impact on what you decide to do with your life. There?s simple searches you can do to see how people rate the school. So you can see how your opinion compares to others. Just because the school has amazing academic standing doesn?t make it a good school. You should also check it stats. Such as how many graduate within 4 years. How many drop out each year. The number of students that receive x% amount of aid from the school. It sounds like a lot but before you pick a school make sure you do your research.

What kind of person should attend this school?

You have to be ablt to adapt to the country lifesyle very easy. You should have an idea of what you want before you com. if not you will feel like you are running in constant circle. which gets you no where. you shoudl also be ready for the peer pressure. what ever you had in high school times it by 10 at least. You should get your self ready for tons of homework. each professor gives homework as if they are the only professor that will give you homeowork.

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

The freedomis amazing. From what classes to take to the people you hang with. there are wide choices of what to do off campus o you are not bound to school 24/7. If you really want to learn something then this is a place you could consider. Overall it is not a bad school. But is is a culture shock for many which I enjoy. It is nothing like home in the city. So if you want something new this could be it.

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

Advice I would give to students and parents about finding the right college is to first find out what kind of college you're interested in. Take into consideration teacher to student ratios, the amount of studying needed for each class, the availability of the professors, and possibly the traveling distance. The advice I'd give to students about how to make the most out of their college experiences, is to go to the university's programs and meet new people. Sign up for a sorority or fraternity, join a club or organization on campus, become active in your campus' activities. Students should be theirselves and remember to not become too wrapped up on the social part of college and forget about their coursework. The last advice I would have for future students is to know what kind of student you are and to always allow time for studying and doing homework!

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person who should attend this school is the type of person who is willing to work towards a degree to their career. Anyone who enjoys small classrooms, one-on-one help with the professors, and a close group of friends. This school is perfect for students who are outgoing, determined, and responsible.

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

The thing I brag most about my school is the natural beauty that the school has to offer. Morehead State has a beautiful campus! The natural beauty is amazing here! A student can walk to Eagle Lake and spend hours there without realizing it. The nature that surrounds this campus is amazing and a must see for anyone.
