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

You. This word, without a doubt, is the most important of all that I can give to those who wish to make intellegent choices about college. The college experience is about finding yourself, not only in terms of ideological, political, and career affiliations, but also in terms of determining what your purpose is in a world FULL of college students and graduates. You must know (or at least be willing to discover) who YOU have been in the past, who YOU are now, and ultimately, who YOU want to become in the future. With that said, the only advice I can give is to focus on that three-letter word, and know that it makes all the difference in your college and life experiences.

What's unique about your campus?

The experience you recieve meeting different types of people.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is comfortable, confident, and willing to learn about different types of people.

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

I would suggest spending a week on the campus. See want the campus looks like mid-term and assess the demeanor of the student body, the range of activities both academic and extracurricular, and the conveinence of shopping, entertainment, educational resources, and grocery stores. Also it is good to see what the weekends are like on campus and off. Becoming at least vaguely familiar with the city is a great way to make friends and stay safe.

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

I wish that I had known more about the city of Atlanta. I came from one of the largest cities in the nation I feel like I am too big for this city. Atlanta has the potential to be a big city in ten years but is currently poorly run with archaic methods.

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

I would advise students to first know what the want to major in and then go from there. There are so many wonderful schools in the United States in which I am very proud to be an American and have this opportunity to explore my dreams as they will also have to explore theirs. I would also inform the student to not to be in a rush when looking for that college that they feel in good for them but to take their time and do a lot of research and then once they feel comfortable about what they are looking for to go on and apply. Make sure they do their reach to make sure that college have what they are wanting to study.

What's unique about your campus?

I Love how the students here get together in study groups and try very hard to help each other out with their studies. Sometimes it gets hard but I keep working. I like the hours of the cafeteria which allows those of us that have early or late classes to still get a good meal. I like the way that problems are handle in the dorms. I am grateful for the workstudy program because it allows me to have a little cash in my pocket and that helps out for washing my cloths and getting my other personal items.

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

I tell them how blessed I am to be accepted into such a good and solid school. I express how proud I am to be able to get fiancial aid as well as loans to come to More house and live my dream, study hard and hopefully fin the job that will take me to the financial level I desire to be at one day soon.

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

Do not find a college based on peers and family. Follow your heart, follow your dreams. Try to put it into a realistic term, but only use it as a trainning tool to help you expidite your progress. Never deny yourself of your dreams. Again, you are making the choice of a lifetime so choose wisely. Explain your decision to your peers and family. Have them completely listen to your opinion and vice versa. Let them know that this is your future and though you value their opinons, you have to make this decision yourself. Parents, its the begining of adulthood. Let them find themselves, guide them, but do not force them. Remember, this is the start of their independance. Listen to what they have to say. Try to understand, and if you can't, then its time to learn about your child, you have a limited amout of time before the world is introduced to them. Don't overreact. Relax. Its not the end of the world. It's the beginning of your teen's future!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is looking to make a change. This college will give you the challenge to work in the real world.

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

The best advice that can be given to any college student is that education comes first. College is a time for error, evalution and improvement. Take the time to exprience all three! The parties and all the fun will still be there after you study.

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

I wish I had known exactly how small the campus was before I got here.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about school is securing finances. Although financial aid is available, it is still hard to secure all monies needed for the year.

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

Encourage your child to visit the colleges in which he/she is interested. At those colleges, let your child interact with the students on his own, to see if he/she can picture himself at the institution and apart of its student body. They will be there for 4 years (in a perfect world), so its important that they feel comfortable there.

What's unique about your campus?

The comradarie and brotherhood among the student body.

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

Sometimes the competiveness amongs students is so strong, that it's sometimes divisive

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

I would say do your research and make sure that you travel different schools to see which one fits you the best. I would also say that it is good to get away from home, while it may be hard getting away from home and growing up is essential to becoming an adult. The last thing I would say is it's very important to live on campus freshman year. There is no year like freshman year. This is the year were you meet the majority of friends throughout your college career, and the year that molds you the person you will eventually be.

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

I wish that I had known that the food wasn't that great and therefore I wouldn't have purchased the most expensive meal plan.

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

I tell fellow peers that the school spirit at this Prestigious college is unmatched. I also tell them that when you graduate from this college Jobs come looking for you because they know the name Morehouse.

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

Morehouse College is the single greatest consortium of black male intellectuals and leaders. There is no place like it in the world. Upon entering the student is quickly absorbed into a culture of excellence and, by the end of four years, is transformed into a modern renaissance man.

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

Consider the culture, community, and prestige of the college almost as much as you consider its academics. The role a college has in developing you into adulthood is crucial; choose a college whose values reflect who you seek to become. The reputation of your school can give your degree weight equivalent to those with higher academic ratings. The prestige of a school - as well as the prominence of its alumni - can open more doors than a good GPA. Also, choose a school where you can foster strong relationships with your professors. Often times you will be learning from serious scholars in their respective fields and it behooves you to learn as much from them as possible (their recommendations are also critical for postgraduate school). Finally, a school where there is a sense of shared community and family is paramount. Go where relationships grow.

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

Everybody who attends Morehouse College says the same thing: They love the college, but they hate Gloster Hall - the administration building. The administrative support is the worst thing about attending this school. The faculty, community, and culture are phenomenal. However, the administration is often unhelpful, lazy, and quick to give students the runaround. One often learns how to be persistent and force results through when they need to.

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

Find what it is that you want to learn about and have a career in. Find the school with the best reputation in that area and resources to help you succeed.

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

The great companies that come and recruit year in and year out.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The poor customer service that the school staff shows towards the students.
