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

When choosing a collage the biggest focus should be on the opprotunities the school offers in the long term. I ended up choosing a school that puts me far away from home and friends and honnestly is a little out of my price range, but I don't regret it because every day I learn so much that will help move me towards my career goals. Not only that, but the school has a great network of almuni, friends, and national notability, all of which will be very important in helping me get a job. Tradition, partying, socializing, those should all come second, but that dosen't mean they won't be important. After my first year I had created a great network of new friends that I know I will be able to rely on for years to come.

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

I wish I had known how hard it was to be conservative about my spending.

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

Visit your prospective campuses. Get a feel for the general atmosphere but have a few conversations with the students and faculty to get some personal perspectives into the college. Set realistic goals for academics and plan out your time wisely!

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

I think you need to begin by really focusing in on what you are interested in studying. From there, zero in on locations, how close to home you want to be, if you want to be in a big city, etc. From there, it's research, research, research. Talk to other students, college guidance counselors, and even visit school's websites. Find out what they are about and if the programs seem like they would be a good fit for you. Make phone calls. You have to be aggressive in getting the information you need because it is your future, and ultimately, you are the one responsible for it. From there, visit. Make sure it's a place you can see yourself enjoying and being comfortable in. Get informed. It's the best way to make the right decision for yourself.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking for a small, conservative environment. NYU isn't going to give you your typical college experience. It certainly isn't what I dreamed up in my head. But, if you can get past that, recognize the beauty of the city and the resources it brings to the school, it can be the rigiht school for just about anyone.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the location, duh, because it's New York City. You get to wake up every morning and be reminded that you are where you need to be.

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

First of all, get all the bearocracy such as loans, financial aid, and registration done as soon as you can. That way you can concentrate on your schoolwork when classes start, rather than worrying about how broke you're going to be! Second, don't start drama over little things, it isn't high school anymore and theres no one to go running home to, so be an adult and try and make mature decisions. Which leads me to: Third, you don't have to impress your firends with how much you can drink, chances are your attempts to be a badass will lead to foul break ups, lost friends, lost lunch, and you'll more than likely wake up somewhere you dont want to be.

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

That I'm living in the heartland of a new revolution, and that major cities like New York City where my school is located are like wombs for cultural change.

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

If you feel certain about your career path, I would say apply to schools based on the quality of the program. If you're unsure, apply based on more personal preferences. If you're very independent and want a more fast paced lifestyle, apply to a city school. If you want the more traditional experience, apply to a suburban or rural school with a campus. When you first get to school, remember that you might not like it right away. If you If you feel like you're having a hard time fitting in, seek out clubs and extracirriculars. Most colleges have such a large number of groups covering just about any interest, and it's a great way to meet a lot of people you have something in common with. Definitely work an internship for at least a semester. Interning will teach you so much that you'll never learn in class, plus it will make the adjustment to the real world a lot less scary when the time comes. Be sure to put a lot of thought into what you want out of the experience, it will be worth it when you're at the right school.

What's unique about your campus?

For the most part, NYU students are very open-minded and there is a lot to learn from both the professors and my classmates. There are a lot of great internship opportunities in New York City, and a great alumni network. Living in New York is exciting and the campus is a part of the city, not enclosed like most college campuses.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People from small towns seem to have the hardest time adjusting. It is also difficult for conservative and many Christian students, but there are small networks and communities for every type of person if they seek them out. NYU is also a very hard school to finance, and financial aid usually comes in the form of loans. Almost every middle class student will have to work a decent amount of hours a week to support themselves while living in New York.

Location, location, location. The best thing about NYU, especially for someone intersted in the theatre or the arts, is the fact that we're IN New York City. You step out of your dorm onto 5th Avenue every morning, not a stuffy, preppy campus.

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

Students should always go with their gut when choosing their college. If you find a place where you step onto the campus and think, "Wow, I really feel like I could belong here," then it's a good shot that it's the place for you. College is about doing what you love and learning to make a life out of it. Be prepared for financial-setbacks, though. Plan very far in advance because sometimes, the universities can be sneaky and all of a sudden, you find yourself without enough money and you have to scramble. However, in the end, you have to decide if your education at this time in this place is worth all the craziness. If your heart says, "Yes. I'll forever be glad I went to school here," then I think, no matter what, it's worth the fight.

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

Experience. What is an experience? An experience may deliever some knowledge to an individual, or it may cause a traumatic event. An experience is an experiment. Thus, what you go into college with, is basically your preparations for your experiment -either you're prepared well, or you're not. For parents, they help with the preparations for their childs' experiment -either they raised them well, or they didn't. Therefore, it's what you as the student makes of it. Never blame it on the circumstances or what preparations you may have been given. Instead, adjust the ingredients and preparations you have been given. Create your own hypothesis and make your experiment successful. Visit the campuses that you might be a part of, and once you have made your decision, read up on the school. Find out what makes the school and what makes the students. Adjusting yourself doesn't mean changing who you are, it means to adapt to certain situations so that you make make the best of it. Maybe there is no "right college" but "right mindset" when you go into a college. Experience college for what it is -make yourself needed and deliver what you have.

What's unique about your campus?

New York University. It's known for several things, but for me, the best thing is the diversity of the students there. Because each different ethnic group comes from a different culture, many cultures and viewpoints are expressed at New York University. Therefore, there are many different personalities, there is always someone to get along with, and there are a vast variety of majors offered for the many different types of requests that may be asked.

Think about what you really like, students. What do you want out of the college experience? Are you looking for career prospects? Is your school specializing in whatever you plan to major in? Or are you there just to have a good time? Parents: protect your wallets.
