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

Don't listen to anyone but yourself. Find what fits you best and what you want to do that will make you happy in life. Also, give your school a chance. Wait at least a year before deciding to transfer; you never know, things may surprise you.

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

The most important thing to remember when selecting a college is that every college is different, and one that may be great for one person could be a terrible choice for another. Before your visits, take the time to research which colleges are strong in your field of interest. Then, most importantly, take the time to visit at LEAST three colleges. Every college has its own personality, and every student should try to find a school that will compliment their personality. A special piece of advice for incoming students; don't worry about where your high school friends are going. You can still see them over break, and chances are that if you pick the right college, you won't miss them nearly as much as you would imagine. Once you pick a school, come into it with an open mind. You will be challenged from every angle, but resist the temptation to go home every weekend. Be willing to let go of some old ideas, but never forget where you came from. Meet your roommate half-way, even if you don't like them, and always assume your professors want to help, because they usually do.

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

Go somewhere that you feel comforatble. I felt comfortable the moment I walked onto campus. I loved everything about it: the people, the classes, the buildings. I'm from a small town and it gave me that same kind of feeling. You will just know when on campus. So you really do need to do a campus tour and maybe even sit in on some classes.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

That there is a lot of clicks once you get there. Sororities hang out with girls in house and people in each sport hang out the same way.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Great liberal arts education. No matter your major, you get a diversity of classes and knowledge in a wide variety of areas. You come out very well rounded.

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

Sometimes, your child cannot explain why a school feels right. Other schools may seem to make more sense, but when you go on your campus visit and research the school, you just KNOW if it feels right for you. Follow your instincts!

What kind of person should attend this school?

An outgoing individual who wants to be involved on campus, have an active social life, but also keep academics their focus. There are activities and groups for virtually everyone. If you enjoy a small campus setting that offers all that a large city like Lincoln does, NWU is perfect.

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

I transferred here, so I found the staff including janitors extra friendly and personal, and the arts much more supported by all faculty and staff. I love it here.

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

Visit lots of schools, spend time there. Sometimes local small schools are better than the top expensive ones, depending on the area of study. Study hard, but not too hard. Party hard, but not too hard. Enjoy.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It's a private school , so it is expensive. I wish I could take more classes and be able to afford extra hours.

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

What I believe to be the greatest asset to an education is finding those people that challenge you and provide alternative manners in which to look at the world. In that way I believe that anyone can find a quality education in any institution as long as they do the work to seek those people out. In my experience I have found these people at my institution because of the ability to receive one on one time with professors who truly care about helping students develop their ideas and career. As a result, I really truly feel that if you want a great college experience what you need to do is have ownership of your education and extend your hand out to the community of learners that you are involved in.

What's unique about your campus?

The small class sizes and the relationships you are able to build with professors.
