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

My advice is if your son/daughter is trying to become a doctor I suggest their child get into the BS/DO program (Bachelours of Science Doctoreate Degree) otherwise don't let your child get into this school. First three semesters consists of pre-med students however later most of them will either drop out or transfer. There's a saying for NYIT, Next Year I Transfer, as for social activities there are none. There is a lack of on campus parties because of the lack of on campus housing, which can be found on SUNY Old Westbury campus, so if your child is dorming at NYIT, he/she isn't going to live on campus. As for the food, its too pricey, it could be lowered. Some people may find NYIT to be an easy college because of some of the courses that are given are too easy. One really big issue on this campus is parking as well because this is a commuter college there's a lack of parking spaces. If your child's first choice for NYIT, make sure he/she has more options available as well because NYIT shouldn't be there only choice.

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

No not really, there's no point of bragging to my friends about my classmates because there aren't many social activities

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

Make sure the college has a sizeable staff where students have choices when choosing classes. Small colleges tend to have fewer course offerings, therefore the student has to wait a year to take the class again if they fail.

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

That required courses in my major were only offered once a year.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants more choices in classes.

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

You need to find what you are comfortable with. You need to also never fall behind on your work because you will never get yourself back on track. And finally you should get involved because school is what you make of it, if you do nothing you will get nothing but your degree out of it. If you get invloved you will have the most amazing time and will get the most out of your degree.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking to just skate by and not get involved.

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

We have one of the most susseccful architecture schools. Also that students and faculty are on the same level as one another.

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

In my own opinions is Find about the school reputation, education, sports. And the most important thing is for me if the school have new buildings, well maintain, clean hallways and green lanws you will put more attention to your studies.

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

Learning more the computer programs before I took the classes

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

Most importantly visit the colleges but not just for orientation. Stay for a few days weekends and weekdays and get a feel for what the college life is like there. That way you have an idea of what your in store for. If you as a student aren't 100 percent dedicated and think you want to party do yourself and your parents a favor and do your first year at a community college .. it will save you a lot of money. Basically you won't pay 30, 000 a year to flunk out like most students.

What's unique about your campus?

The teachers definately. The teachers at this school are inelligent, experienced and there to help you and they make that very obvious from day one.

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

The worst thing about the Westbury campus of NYIT is the "clicks" of ethnic groups that form and the fact that people continue to just let that happen. White with white .. black with black, I personally don't care but i think that it is because I am a little older and more experienced than your typical 18 year old students.

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

Make sure you pick the one that you feel in your heart is the right choice. Remember that you can always transfer if you feel the need to in the years to come. You may want to leave home because you cannot stand your home life, but most people will become home sick, which is why I chose to live at home. Living on campus I have heard is fun too but it is based on perference of the individual. You must do what you and your parents feel is right and suitable for you.

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

If you don't know what you want to do (major) then go to a 2 year community college first, do your best (3.0 or better) and transfer to the school of your dreams. If you know what you want to major in, get as much information about the major itself and the schools that offer the program. Talk to your advisors, talk to people working and attending those schools, most of all listen to your gut instinct, and especially listen to your parents. Make sure you VISIT the schools and when you do TALK TO PEOPLE. Walk through classes, get an idea of what those people are doing in class and where they go after school is over. Make sure you love the school. If you're still not sure, just go to a community college and work off of that.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

commuting. No dorms. poor teachers. Poor classes. Poor education. No advisors. No help. No jobs. No study abroad. No future. No design. No art. No creativity. No fun.

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

First, I would say apply to everywhere you want. Anything that looks interesting to you, apply there, because it just may be the right school for you. In the same vein, apply to more schools than one, as that is what I did and now regret not exploring my options when I had the chance. If you're not so sure what you want to do with your life yet, don't worry. Not that many people have it all together by the time college rolls around. You'll get there too. Just look into anything that interests you and find the college that offers that subject. As for college experience, I stayed local and commute. The best advice I can offer there is to just meet people in your classes. Remember, it's their first time at college too (most of the time) and they're just as nervous as you. There's one thing you have in common right off the bat. You'll always have the chance to meet new people, just make yourself open to it. Before you know it, you'll have made a bunch of new friends and you'll have a blast.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I feel that for a person to succeed at this school and find a job in my field (Communication Arts), it must be more luck than anything, or at least that is all I've noticed so far. A person who wants a more comprehensive education with a better chance at getting a job later on should be a medical or architectural major. The programs for those majors are really well structured. As for the kind of person, I think it lies more with the merit of the program than the actual person enrolled in it, on a success level.
