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

My advice to parents and students searching for the right college is to be open minded. Don't look at schools with a set in stone expectation because most likely you will not find your perfect school. To make the most of your college experience the student needs to be out going and once again open minded. you can't be afraid to throw caution into the wind and try something different. To really make the most of college you need to take chances, while being safe and having fun.

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

How hard of a transition it is from High School to College, no matter who you are. Freshman year needs to be taken more seriously. I wish I new to be more independent of myself.

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

When looking for the right colleges for your child make sure to take your time and travel around each one. It is important to explore the surrounding area and talk with students on campus, not just the tour guides. You will find out much more from a student sitting at a local restaurant than the tour guide. Also, find out the average increase in tuition per year. Sometimes schools award small scholarships, but by the time your child reaches their senior year their scholarship is no longer worth as much as it once was. Students, get involved. Go to your schools club fair and sign up for every club that interests you. This is the best way to get involved, meet friends and find out new and exciting things to do on campus. Even if you do not stay involved with the club, you will meet many new people that be able to help you in the future. Also, find balance. Yes, school is for learning but not just the curriculum, you are also learning about yourself. Get out and socialize, meet people, but do not forget the main reason why you are at college.

What's unique about your campus?

THe best thing is the fact that it is small and personal but that is also one of its major flaws. I think it provides its students with wonderful opportunities for their future. Meeting with proffessors is never an issue, and they all are there to help you.

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

There are a alot of things to consider when choosing the right college. The greatest thing you have to make sure is that the college you choose, will be able to give your child the greatest education, so you have to look at if they have their major, and a good selection of classes. Also, you should keep in mind the condition the dorm rooms are if they are going to live on campus. For most of the year, they will be on campus, so the room has to be pretty decent . If your child knows that they will make friends, that they know its the perfect size school, and that they have their major and can get the best education possible, then that's the college you pick for them. As long as your child is happy and content, that's all that matter when going to college to get the most possible college experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who knows what they want from their life. Someone who will work hard to study, and do well in their classes. A person who would like to make friends, and would feel at home and safe. Someone who will do anything to acheive their goals.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Getting a lot of homework at the same time. Most of the time I have a lot of reading homework to do for all my classes that due on the same day, so it gets frustrating at times.

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

In finding the right college, if you are going to live away from home you first have to be able to picture yourself at this school, 24/7. If you can't seeing yourself living there but can see yourself taking classes there, then that is not the right school for you. You have to feel 100% comfortable with the dorms on campus and with the feel for the campus. If you like smaller groups and are used to a smaller size high school, go for a smaller/medium size college. On the other hand, if you are used to a lot of commotion and large schools, a larger college will be a better fit. To make the most out of your experience, you have to get involved rather then just study and do well in your classes. Take challenging classes, join many clubs and then take leadership positions at the ones you like best but limit yourself to only a few clubs so you can dedicate more time to them rather then try to divide your time into many of them. Get to know a lot of people, and have fun because college is once a lifetime.

What's unique about your campus?

The class sizes and the professors. They are here to help you as best they can

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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

Visit colleges during senior year in high school to get a good feel for the environment. Look at college web sites & talk to current students while visiting the college to see what their experiences are like. Make a good group of friends from your dorm and classmates in order to have a support group available. Study hard but have fun during your free time.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Goal-oriented, responsible, outgoing , & dedicated person.

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

Classroom sizes are just the right size where you know all your classmates & the professors can easily know you. Especially if you need help, they are there to help you & know you by name. The on-campus dorms are all renovated and feel very "home like".
