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

Start early, especially when it comes to applying for financial aid. Spend time at prospective colleges and get to know some of the students. Find out what employment opportunities are available for graduates. Plan to work hard, but take time for fun too. It helps relieve the stress and keep you going when it gets tough.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person who is serious about their career and education. It is recommended that you share, or are very tolerant of the Christian belief system.

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

My program, Communications in Video and Radio Broadcasting, has state of the art equipment and outstanding training. The program has allowed me to work part time for the radio station, and allows for public appearance, participation in various local events.

Don't be afraid to be out going. College can be lonely at first, but if you are willing to be open and friendly with others, you have the potential to make friends very quickly.

The best thing about my school is how they encourage you to live for more than just yourself, and to not be afraid to help others.

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

1. Don't worry about the cost, God will handle that for you: somehow. 2. Don't just go where your friends are going. 3. Have fun but don't loose sight of the work you need to do.

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

Dead on weekends, easy to go into the cafeteria and not want anything ( food is repeated often ).

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

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

I don't think that there is any advice to give someone when finding the right college. It is basically letting the parents encourage their child's abilities and talents and whether or not their child wants to continue their education. All I can really tell you is that the college you chose must be a reflection of yourself or how you want people to view you. Whether you attend the largest party school in America or a small school in the middle of a cornfield, the overall college experience is something you make for yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

Being an Art major I really appreciate that the Art Department has kept the overall courses simple not being able to narrow down to a specific major (ex. photographer to painter) and only kept a small range of classes offered, allowing you to push your creativity. Other then that the professor's want to guide you but also push you mentally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually to succeed in your area of study. At this college you are a person not a number.

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

How the impact of everyone around you is life changing for the better. This college provided me with the ability to grow at my own rate as a Christian.

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

The atmosphere of MVNU feels comfortable. Most teachers I have had are extremely nice and helpful. The cafeteria food is better than all of the other schools I visited. The worship in chapel is contempory, with a mix here and there of traditional worship, where other schools this conservative were all traditional worship. It does not feel too big, or too small.

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

In finding the right college, I would suggest that both parents and students consider visiting colleges within the students? junior year of high school. Senior year goes by quickly and deadlines for applications and scholarships approach without realization. Secondly, I would suggest that parent and student sit down together and form a list of what they look for in a college. With this list, it will be easier to narrow down which college is best suited for the student and is within the restraints of the parents? wishes. Lastly, while visiting colleges, do not be afraid to ask questions and participate. Make sure the student takes part in what the visitation has to offer, such as a meal in the cafeteria, a chance to sit in on a class, or a chance to spend a night in the dorms. All of these will better display the characteristics of the school. My advice in making the most of the college experience is that the student attending should get involved in activities as soon as they can. Friendships form quickly. Also, the student must learn very quickly to balance social life and schoolwork. Stay organized and conscious of when schoolwork is due.

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

That the tuition raises more and more each year. That I would not qualify for any financial aid other than loans. That the way the school spends money is all based on getting students to come to the school, and not on keeping students here. Much of our hard- earned money has gone to decorating the school, rather than providing housing, parking lots or bigger buildings which are all despirately needed. That the fruit they provide in the cafeteria is only good when they are planning for visitors. Meal plans are all the same.

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

The relationships between faculty and students at this school is quite different from other schools that were considered. There seems to be a bond between the faculty and students due to their common God-centered foundation. Faculty are enthusiastic to help their students are make attempts for students to receive help even when they themselves are unavailable to provide the help. The students in return give respect to the faculty because they know that they are respected and valued.

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

Hey high school grad, believe it or not but how far away from home your school is will matter to you so distance is something to keep in mind. Also, how much financial aid is available is a huge deal. Even though a school may have a reputation for being the most fun, if that school isn't helping you out to your level of necessity, then you may reconsider you enrollment. You don't want to be paying on school loans when you're old enough to have a knee replacement do you? Making the most of one's college experience should be based not on how high one's GPA is nor how many friends one has. Instead, surrounding oneself with genuine people that care for you enough that they would come running at three o'clock in the morning if needed is important as well as actually learning the material that is presented. All those assignments will do no good after graduation if one has forgotten the purpose of those assignments. Purpose is the foundation of an ultimate college experience and purpose can only be created by the help of genuine friends and the use of wisdom.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is that it not only focuses on the academic growth and well being of the students but also the spiritual growth and well being. The academic growth allows for progress toward career oriented goals. The spritual growth allows for one's world view to be shaped and for one to develop a closer relationship with God. These two aspects that are focused on the most at my school are essential in regards to developing a college student into a genuine and successful person.

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

I would tell the parents and students that it is important to visit the college campus before choosing a college, taking a visit day really does help especially if you can visit more than once and talk to the students about their experience. It is important to talk to more than one group of students though because their answer may be biased depending on their situation.

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

I wish I would have known that they charge you money to put credits onto your transcript.

Some of the best and most classy people I know.

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

I would suggest that you go with your gut feeling! I know this sounds too simple, but when you know, you just know! I loved my school and it was the first school that I visited! I would also suggest that you think seriously about the tuition cost. I have a lot of student loans, but my educational experience was completely worth it. Make sure you know for sure that your experience is something that you are worth paying for!

MVNU is very conservative and most of the time the students get a long with each other well.

The unique thing about MVNU is that, while there is alcohol use (rarely), most of the students obstain from drug or alcohol use.

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

Visit the campus and pick whichever one feels the most at home to you. If the campus does not feel comfortable to you do no pick it, you will be miserable the whole time you are there. If you feel at home at the campus you are attending you will feel so much better about yourself and the education you will be obtaining.
