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

First of all I would say once you've choosen a few colleges to apply to, visit them, because a school could have everything you're loking for , but you may not like where it's at, and even though that's not what you're going to school for it plays a big part in it, because no one wants to go to a school where you have to worry about your car getting broken into all the time or you can't take night classes because your are afraid to walk across campus at night just because it's in a bad neighborhood. We all know that the academics are the most important thing but look at everything else that comes with that school. Also I would say look at the the student to teacher ratio of the school. If you like not being noticed by your teacher then you might want a larger class size within the school , but if you like getting in good with your teachers you might want a school that has smaller class sizes, because when it comes down to it your teachers can be of the biggest help to you in school.

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

I can't really say if there is a worst thing about my school. They encourage us to do our best in our academic studies and we do. An the facilities that they provide for us wether it be dorm rooms, science labs, or class rooms are great.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The only thing that I can say about my school that is frustrating is the begining of the year financial aid problems. Of course the lines are long and you have to clear your whole day to get your everting straight because that's how long it will take. And sometimes they do give you the run around, but other than that everything else is good.

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

Knowledge of yourself is the most important part of identifying the RIGHT college. If you know who you are and what you want to accomplish, you are more apt to make the best decision about school. Knowing yourself allows you to base your collegiate decision on what major you are interested in, what social activities matter to you, how close you want to be to home, your ability to care for yourself, and your ability to live with/get along with others. These things are very important in choosing a school. You also have to be aware of your dedication, self-discipline, and responsibility. BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF! If you know that you are not very responsible or are easily distracted, you should choose a school that reflects those things. Visit the schools that you are interested in and speak with some of the students to get a true feel for the school. Make sure that the decision you make is one that you are sure about and is one that you make for yourself, not your parents or friends.

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

The surrounding area of the school sometimes impacts the school. For instance, crime in the area puts a damper on the school and outings for some people. There is a lot of change taking place at the school currently that will be very beneficial in the long run, but it can be a burden on the students now.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are not dedicated to your education, then you should not attend this school. Because of the rich social life and various activities, if you are not here for the right reasons, you can become easily distracted. The location and things that are available here can be a blessing and a curse. It just depends on the person.

NCCU is a community not just a college.

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

I think it's important for parents and students to visit the campuses they are considering before they choose a college or university. When a student finally finds the university of his or her dreams, it is important to find at least one campus organization to participate in. While earning a degree it is also important to give back to the community in which your going to school so that you become apart of it, not just a visitor.

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

I would tell them to make sure they do a lot of research. Visit the school during the middle of the week when there are a lot of students on campus and more activities going on. Also to ask questions to current students. If the school allows visit a classroom of your perspective major to view class size, teaching style, etc. Most importantly do well in high school so that you may have schools competing for you!

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

I wish I had known that I need to have a lot more patients beefore I attended NCCU.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about North Carolina Central University is the lack of communication between the adminstrative offices. If students go to one office they reffer them to another office, then that office tells them to go back to the first one they went to and so on. I feel like if the administrators don't know what to do, there is no way we're supposed to know either.

My advice is to let your child be able to explore their options before entering the right field of which they want to study first.

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

Some Advice that I would give parents and students about finding the right college and making the most of their college experience is, to the parents you should have an active role in the college your child choses. Sometimes as future stundents we choose schools based on the wrong things such as parties, sports and extra curricular activites. All these ideas are wonderful, but should not be your main choice in deciding a college to attend. Students should focus more on the retention rate, graduation rate, acrediablity, and last but not least the student teacher ratio. Students when you first walk on that campus get to know your fellow classmates and school mates. Making friends before you start a particular college will allow you to make the most of your college experience. And lastly Get INVOLVED!!! Weither it be with the Student Government or a social club, this will allow your resume to expand and open up new doors for you. Always remember time management is an essential key to making sure you actually get to stay in school. So learning how to balance your time now will work out for you in the end.

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

Honestly, there is no worst thing at my school. NCCU experiences the same problems any college does.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The Most frustrating thing about North Carolina Central University, is the long book store and finicial aid lines at the start of a semester.
