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

Normally, when people are asked for advice by others, it serves as a good resource for the advisee and an ego boost for the advisor. With this boost in confidence or ego, the advisor tends to expound almost everything he or she knows and will slip in the more useful aspects occassionally. I will only give students one piece of advice which should serve them not only in college, but also in choosing a work place or a place to live: find the place where you feel you could most be yourself and not the person you wish to be. Many times, we are set in a certain mind-set of needing to be a certain way to "fit in" our world. There are so many colleges to choose from! Don't get stuck on the rankings, simply find one where you won't betray your true self on the way to class or while working on a project. College is a way to enhance the self, not learn how to mask it even further. Good luck!

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

It's lack of community would probably be the worst part but being in New York City, the city's vibe has simply permeated into NYU.

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

There is not a great sense of community between the students.

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

Find what you the student is most passionate about career wise and pick a college that helps you furthur your experience in the field. If something in your gut tells you that a college isn't right don't pick that school. Sometimes you need to take a leap of faith and go with what your heart is saying. College is a big step in life. It can also be a very daunting decision to make. Trust your instincts and go after your passions. You'll be happier with yourself if you follow your dreams. This is your life and not your parents'. Don't let others influence your decisions. Also, enjoy your time at school. These next few years are the last moments of least responsibility. Take advantage of that. Grades are not everything. There is a line between academic time and social time. Remember to make time for both. To sum up, go after what makes you passionate and smell the roses along the way.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I have always said that a person that believes that there is only one way to fit in a school would not do well here... We don't have an overarching sense of community; you have to make friends in several different circles. It's a different way to look at college, but it means that a lot of people can find a good fit here!

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

Part of the college search requires being informed--studying up on a school, looking up which schools are best for your particular academic interests, even looking at the ratings and reviews--and part of it requires throwing all of that away, and really taking the time to feel out which campus is right for you, which school seems like the most logical transition from high school to college life. It helped me to take a look at my high school and identify what things I would keep about it and what things I would change. When you actually get to a school, the most important thing is to GET INVOLVED! Don't wait for the information to come to you; be proactive about what kind of experience you want to make for yourself. Get to know your professors--it'll help to establish a relationship if you ever run into problems during the semester. Hang out with the people on your floor, especially your first year, because those people will stick by you in the years to come. Finally, take the time to discover yourself--build on talents you've had before, and develop some new ones!

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

As a student, go to the college that feels best for you from the moment you walk on that campus. As a parent, do not force your child into a school where they are not interested in going. These are the best four years of your life and it is important to be comfortable in your enviornment. College is for finding yourself. Choose a school that has many resources and cultural activites to truly broaden your opportunities and scope of life. Follow your instinct and talk to students on campus visits!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The students at my school (Stern) within the university have very different goals than I do and can be described as "Sternies" who are very focused on majoring in finance, and take their school work and careers very seriously, and tend to be somewhat exclusive, something that is very different from what I am used to.

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

Visiting colleges, time permitted, is crucial. My school doesn't have a campus, and perhaps that isn't right for your child. Visiting a campus during junior or senior year in high school also gives you a sense of the culture in which the school is located in. My first college was in Savannah, GA which I was told was a city. But their definition of a city was completely different from mine, because when I think of city, I think NYC or D.C. Also, look into different schools within the university. Some schools within the universities stand out and so you have to choose the right school based on their creditation, not the university overall.

What kind of person should attend this school?

You have to be confident in yourself and determined to do well because the school is extremely competitive. You can't be afraid to say what you think and have your own opinion. If you graduate from Stern, the diploma will be worth a lot and will help you get a job, but again, must be very focused and most students here major in finance with several marketing majors and some management.

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

Do a lot of research and visit multiple schools. Doing the research helps you compare schools and find things that you do or don't like which can help you make a decision. Visiting the schools is very important. The school might sound amazing on paper but when you get there you might end up hating it. Research cannot completely convey the atmosphere or how you will personally feel there. Sometimes you just get a feeling.

visit the college, research the college: its ranking, its majors/programs, how successful its alumni are, etc. location does matter: if you are likely to be homesick, choose a college nearby or closer to home you don't have to go to the same college as your friends: you'll make new friends
