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

The college you choose should be all about you! You cannot simply look at colleges because your parents went there, your sister went there, or because your best friend wants you to go there. However, that should be a college you visit, along with a college you would love to go to, and a few colleges you think would be practical based on your future career and financial situation. You will visit all of them, probably with your parent(s) or guardian(s) and something will just hit you, out of the blue you will absolutely know you are in the right place. You will look around and all of a sudden you cannot imagine this college without you, or you without this college. The scenery, the class sizes, your future teachers, and the tour you complete will all lead you to your college destiny. Your mind and heart will tell you what you need and do not need. And after visiting all these places you will end up in the college of your choice just like me. My mind and heart led me to Nebraska Wesleyan University?Where will yours lead you?

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

That single mothers would not get the support they need.

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

Nebraska Wesleyan is a small school in the city. We get appropriate attention from teachers but still have the opportunities the city offers. Because of its size, NWU is a great place for leaders to get experience in several extracurricular activities. Professor here are understanding of other commitments and helpful in addressing time conflicts as well as how to improve accademically.

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

Find a college where people are friendly and helpful on the tour. They will probably continue to be that way through college. Besides that, college is what you make of it. It's challenging and encouraging, and almost all colleges can give you what you need as long as you put the effort into finding it.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the fact that because of the size no one is able to slack off. We all need to work in order to keep things running. We need more officers in organizations and perhaps less programming. Unfortunately, no one can decide what needs to stay and what things can be taken off the calender.

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

The one thing to consider when choosing a college is finding the right size for you. I prefer small classes where I can get to know my professors and get one-on-one help, so I chose Nebraska Wesleyan, but the choice is up to you. Try not to worry about the cost of the school. If it's where you want to go and you are accepted, then work hard on getting scholarships and loans. It can be difficult, but if you work hard, you can usually get most of the cost in scholarships. Another thing to consider is what you want your major to be or if you are undecided. Community colleges are good for those who aren't completely decided, that way, you can get the generals out of the way. If you know what you want to do, try picking a college that focuses a lot on that specific area. Don't pick a school because your friends are going there or your parents want you to go there. Pick the college that is right for YOU!

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

I love my school because it is small, so I feel a one-on-one connection with my professors and students that go here. The other thing that I love about NWU is the fact that it's very easy to get involved. There are plenty of opportunities for anyone. The best thing, though, about NWU, is the fact that the students are pushed academically to do well. The professors and advisors want their students to succeed.

Don't just go where your friends go. Find the college that is the right fit for you, this is the best way to get the education you want. I love my school because it fits my needs and wants!

What's unique about your campus?

I think the small town feel in the city. All the things are clase and you are right next to a little area that looks like an old town (it actually used to be it's own little town many years back.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

You are required to live on campus for 6 semester unless you want to try to petition it. Which is a hard process.

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

When deciding on the right college, I think it is most important to visit the campus of several colleges and visit with the professors at that school. If the campus does not feel "homey" or comfortable, it is not likely that you will enjoy being on that campus. Getting to know the professors is very important when learning about the type of classes you might be taking in that particular major. Another important aspect of choosing a college is knowing the campus life and activities on campus as well as the financial aid offered by each school. At times, scholarships can be the most important factor when choosing a college. College should be a home away from home, and if you do not feel comfortable, safe, and optimistic about that school, it is probably not the right school for you. You should follow you heart and look past the monetary issues if everything else falls into place.

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

The worst thing about my school is the lack of diversity on campus. Because it is such a small university, not many ethnic people prefer NWU over a larger university.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking for a large university with a lot of diversity, large class sizes, someone who is not academically motivated, or someone who does not want to be known by name should not attend this university.

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

Wesleyan is a small school in a big town. You have the closeness of a smaller high school while still being in a big city. There is another huge University in Lincoln so it is a college town for sure. There is always fun things to do in the city, but you can really concentrate and get fully immersed at this school as well. It's the perfect mixture of size and opportunity.

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

The college search experience can be one of the most exciting and scary times of your life. It's important to fully immerse yourself in your search and try to get as much out of it as you can. Parents- it's important to give input. You might have experience that can be shared. But don't pressure your children into something they may not want to do. Students- take the information that your parents, counselors, friends, etc. give you and use it all to make the best decision. Only you can know what school will best fit you. Never be afraid to ask questions! I work giving tours on my campus and I don't believe there are any stupid questions. Make sure to visit campus before you decide anything. Don't forget to have fun! Enjoy every aspect of the college search and be excited to embark on the next part of your life. College has truly been the best experience of my life. It might be a little nerve-wracking, especially if it's your first time away from home. But trust me, you'll look back on all of it with a smile on your face.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Wesleyan is great for all types of people. There is a place for everyone here. I know all different types of people that go this school and they have all had a positive experience. It's probably more for people who really like to get involved. They want to stand out and not just be a number or a face in the crowd. People that go here are very outgoing and friendly.
