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

Be honest with yourself about what you're looking for. I thought I was looking for a Christian school when I really just wanted a semi-conservative school. Leave yourself some room to adjust rather than picking a school based on very narrow criteria.

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

I wish I had known that the religious affiliation of the school would make the culture prohibitive to exploring new ideas openly.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school is very, very christian. If you don't believe in Jesus, this is definately not a place to even consider. If you're looking for a place with a free flow of ideas, this isn't it either.

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

Stuents need to visit every college campus that they are interested in. Being on campus and actually experiencing the atmosphere is incredibly important. Eating in the cafeteria, interacting with current students, even speaking with faculty members, will give you a very perspective of what life for you will be like over the next four years. Don't be afraid to dream big, and look out of state. Private college tuition is the same for everyone, in-state or otherwise. There's not harm in visiting; you might be surprised once you step on campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who is serious about challenging their faith and growing in an environment where Jesus is present. If you have a desire to serve other people, learning new and different ways to be an active part of your community, locally and globally. You don't have to know Jesus personally, but if you have an open mind and a willingness to have your world-view radically changed, then MVNU is the place for you.

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

The opportunities to travel abroad and develop relationships with people of an entirely different culture than you are used to rocked my world. I tell everyone about my trips to Venezuela. We have some great athletic teams for a small, private school, too.

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

There is strong focus placed on the students academically and spiritually. The profesors here are very personable and friendly, often taking time to get to know you by inviting you to their house, etc. This is a Christian university, and I feel tons of unity among the students. We are encouraged to strive for excellence, not just for ourselves, but so that we can glorify God. This is a great place to learn and challenge yourself! Lastly, the friendliness of the staff you daily encounter, the availability of on-campus jobs, and the intramurals make this college great!!! Come here!!!

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

In order to really see if a particular school would work for a student, they should visit the student. Go through a guided tour, talk with students and profesors, and walk through a normal day in the life of a student, including going to a chapel service if offered, eating in the cafeteria, and looking at a normal dorm room/apartment. Don't buy in to the fancy words and souped up descriptions found in brochures that schools send you. One you find your school, go crazy! Experience everything you can, at least the first year. Value your independence, don't go home every weekend. Don't neglect your study time (make sure you read your textbooks), yet don't forget to be social. The friends you make in college will be life-long. If you start struggling academically, check out your school's Academic Support Office and make sure to attend any supplemental instruction sessions or group study environments. Don't be afraid to use each administrative office if you must, they are there to serve you. Overall, experience as much as you can, because the four years fly by. These are the best years of your life!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There are three things that frustrate me about this school. First, the school is located in a small city, so there's not much to do off campus. Second, the Financial Aid and Student Accounts offices in our school often make mistakes with the students already enrolled in the college, and are often late in posting how much scholarships you have or how much left you have to pay on your bill. Lastly, I have an on-campus job, and for some reason, most of my paychecks do either not arrive when they should.

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

School credentials mean little if a student does not feel comfortable at his/her college of choice. The right college, and the one that provides the motivation to get involved, is the one that both challenges a student and accepts him/her at the same time. An institution that does not fit the social needs of a student will not be a posititve environment for fostering good study skills. Dedication only comes with an awareness that a person's accomplishments have purpose and significance. Parents should be open to how the college feels to the student, and students should consider finding a place that gives them the best social and spiritual opportunity to discover themselves.

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

Make sure that you ask about extra cirriculars. I got involved in some sports related clubs and they are pretty sweet. Its a good way to meet new people and to get your name out there around campus. Also, the food has to be good. Your going to be eating it everyday if you live on campus so make sure its worth it.

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

The worst thing about my school is the drive from home. Its about a hour and a half to my house and just paying the gas money for the trips is ridiculous. Other then that I have loved this school since I have stepped foot on campus.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Sometimes the professors get wrapped up in their work and will not have our tests, papers, and quizzes back to us on time. But normally they do a pretty good job about doing everything to help each student out in anyway possible.

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

My advice for parents is to be supportive and active in helping their child find the right school. It is a daunting process to look at schools and try to figure out what will be the best choice, and it is encouraging to know that they (as a student) do not have to figure it out on their own. My advice to students is to figure out what factors (such as location, academics, or size) that are important to them so they can choose a school that will be a good fit for them. Go and visit the schools they are considering- set up a visit where they can get a feel for campus life by sitting in on a class or eating lunch in the cafeteria. Do not be afraid to make a decision- the worst decision to make is not deciding anything. Once a college has been chosen, get involved in activities on campus so they can meet new people and find others that enjoy similar activities. The way to make the most of a college experience is to not be too focused on grades or having fun, the key is finding a balance between these two.

What's unique about your campus?

The friendly atmosphere of students and faculty. I have made lots of friends the last several years including professors who have encouraged me both academically and spiritually.

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

Too strict sometimes. There are a lot of rules that seem unnecessary.
