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

I would definately tell parents and students to go visit as many colleges as they can. I went on lots of road trips with my mom to visit colleges, even though I ended up going only about 25 minutse from my house. I would definately reccomend living on campus your first year that way you can be involved in orientation. Every freshman is in the same boat, they are looking to make friends and have the best college experience that they can and in order to do that I really think nyou need to live on cmpus your first year. And one last thing I would reccomend is not to dorm with your high school friend, even if they are your best friend. You need to branch out and make new friends, im not saying that you should dump your old friends, but its important to make new friends, especially ones that have the same major as you, that you will be able to connect with them throughout your years at college.

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

I wish I had know how much students drink. I need my sleep and as a fresman living in a dorm I did not get much sleep on Thursday nights because Thursdays were the night to go out and it was very noisey.

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

It's a smaller private college. It's hosts a friendly campus and easy access to the buildings. Security here is also very friendly and know most students by name, not because they have caused trouble but becuase security genuinely cares about the students. The faculty here are also very friendly and many professors carry out casual friendships with current as well as former students. Being located in Newburgh brings with it the stimulus of crime and danger, but the campus is very secure and safe for students.

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

For students: Make the most of everything offered at your school. Go to the programs and branch out, this way you make more friends. Talk to the faculty whenever you get a chance, this way when you need help it's easier for you to approach them. Don't forget to have fun amongst all your studies. For parents: Make the most of campus visits. Get any questions about the campus that you may have answered. Talk with your child about his/her goals to try and keep them on track. As much as you are going to want them to come home, have them stay on campus for the first month. This will help them get adjusted to the campus as well as to living on their own. This will also encourage them to make friends and attend campus activities.

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

The worst thing, that's harder to answer. I guess it would have to be that nursing is one of the hardest majors offered at this school, placing a lot of stress on nursing students.

Describe the students at your school.

Very racially divided with many ethnic biases.

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

I think it is important that the student makes connection with the staff an other students around campus. They should investigate the program or study they are most interested and what will be expected of them in the next four years. Some schools offer trimesters and more hands-on education, some have smaller privte classes, and some offer large lectures and diversity. Being in a comfortable environment is very important for success-this is your home for 4 years, and it is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.

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

Visit a lot of colleges. Dont be afraid of asking questions when you're on campus, it is so important to research the community the school is in and what surrounds it. Try to observe campus and see what it seems like, the type of students who go there, how vivacious it is etc. Above all go with your heart and parents... dont try to force your child into chosing a school that you want them to go to. Remeber, if you're unhappy you will not be successful.

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

Just how unsafe the area around the campus is, it is a fantastic school but there have been quite a few security problems while I've been on campus.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

In the hospitals MSMC is well known and respected for their training of nurses. I hear only good things, and as we training we always get a great reception.

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

Let the person really think about where she/he would like to be in 10 yrs. I graduated and was very unsatisfied, it took me getting in to the world to see where me path was. Now I love Nursing as my profession. As I grow nearer to graduation I could not be anymore excited. Also, join groups that you may not have in high school. Use this as an experience to not only learn new things, but to meet new people. It can never hurt to see life through a new friends eyes; regardless of the career choice. Once you choose a profession try to pick a school that is strong in that area, this way you get the best possible instructors who are competent and are very knowledgeable in your intended field.
