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

Various campus organizations that are available to students to be involved in, such as Greek organizations, Students Government Association, and so on. Especially, if students are interested in fraternity or sorority pledging, then try to learn about each organization of your interest in prior to the initiation. You might later regret your decision that you made while not fully informed.

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

I would do my best on the SATs and ACTs to boost my chance to receive more scholarships from schools for which I would apply. Finance was one of the major reasons that led me choose MSU, which offered more scholarships than any other schools, and sometimes I wondered whether I would have gone to a more prestigious school, had I been guaranteed the same--or better--financial support from other schools. However, I would give myself this piece of advice: no matter where you end up--whether the school is presitigious or not--, the degree of satisfaction in college depends on how you make up your mind to be. You can always find all kinds of fascinating opportunities to enrich your experiences in college--you just have to explore it yourself. So before you grumble about how small and mediocre your school is, look around to see some amazing aspects of your school about which you didn't know, and start imagining how great it would be to your advantage to intergrade those awesome factors into your life! There are always interesting things to explore in college, and you will be sorry if you don't start it now.

Take everything that your teachers teach you, you'll use it ALL down the road. Also, if you thought you were studying in high school, you have no idea!

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

I wish that I would have known my major. Changing majors put me a little behind, MSU is doing great with getting me back on track though.

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

Before I started college I thought that it would be just like highschool. But little did I know I would actually have to TRY to get good grades. If I could go back to highschool I would for sure work harder and learn better time management skills, as well as studying skills.

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

The worst thing about Murray State University is the lack of availible transportation. While the campus is within decent walking distance it would be nice to take a shuttle out to the farms and various other locations on the campus that are too far to walk.

What's unique about your campus?

The people are laid back and helpful yet education is still priority. Diversity is big, but Murray is small, so cultural connection is bound to transpire.

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

Extensive pressure is put on high school students about finding the 'right fit' in a college. Although I do recommend finding a place that suits you, many are led to believe that can only be one place. Decide first the approximate size of student body you want and what kind of area would be desirable to live for the next four years. Look at the programs you are interested in and how you see them shaping your future. Cost is important and careful consideration should be taken to look at scholarships. Imagine your life immediatly after college and how freeing it would be to have little or no debt but do not compromise the quality of education for this feeling. DON'T STRESS! You are not married to the school you start out at. Find somewhere you'll like spending time and take social life into consideration-The coffee shop on the corner you'll snuggle up in on Saturday's ... and the exchange student that will broaden your horizons. Be optimistic about the new people you'll meet and the things you'll learn, not only in lecture but the first 8 times you scorch your microwavable macaroni dinner!
