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

I would suggest that parents and students ltogether look closely at every area of the school, not just the areas they like at orientation, but look at every aspect, from the meal plan to the parking plan. Also, look into how much the school works with the students and ask around for what current students do not like about the school, that way every aspect can be considered. Colleges and universities can be a lot of money so make sure it is a school that you love and respect.

Describe the students at your school.

There are a few classmates that I have encountered who didn't care about the subject nor the teacher, but they did do well in the end. North Central University is all about academic excellence.

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

There are many different things to consider when looking for the right college. For some it may be all about the althetic department, and for others it may be how well the school does academically. It all goes with how well you can do the little things. For instance, if you get a football scholarship to lets say Notre Dame. You want to make sure that the school is the right "fit" for you. Check out the school, the dorms, sit in a classroom, eat the food, hang with the students, do whatever you need to do to make sure that you are 100% sure that this is the right school for you. Now, just because I mentioned Notre Dame doesn't mean that you have to start there. Go to all sorts of schools, public and private. There is one out there for you. You just have to look for it. I did.

What kind of person should attend this school?

They type of person who should attend this school is one who is looking for more of God and/or ways to get involved with a community that is ethnically diverse.

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

Having been through the process as a recent high school student, helping out with recruiting as a collegiate coach, and looking into further schooling for my Master's, I have had to spend quite a bit of time looking into how students decide on schools. What I've found is that while there is no way that can adequately prepare you for everything about the school, personal experience and relationships are about as close as you can get. I would encourage any potential student to visit the school, at least once, and to see for yourself what you like and dislike about it. College visits aren't a bright new idea, but what you do on them might be. Go with a list of questions and be intentional about connecting with several current students. If a student enjoys their school, they will be glad to take time to tell you about the true 'ins and outs' of the school. With all the social networks it is very easy to stay in touch without it being awkward. This way you get the real feel of the school to add to the scripted response of the paid admissions staff.

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

Small college campus - there is a ton to do around the campus, but the overall campus is pretty small

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

I would tell the student to make sure that they know what career they want to go into before they decide on going to college and wasting their money on something they never wanted to do. I would also tell the student to do a thorough check into the competency of the administration in the school as well as what's available to them for housing. A lot of times schools will put on a front and when you get there you don't realize who they are until you're two years into your college education, on the verge of your jr. year, and trapped there because it's to late to transfer, in order to shy away from this I would recommend really doing a lot of research into the school by contacting people who have gone there through facebook and other means.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Conservative Christian person who still is following the orders of mommy and daddy, and their pastor at their church. Also, somebody who is closed minded to any religion other than their own. Somebody who doesn't take their career or education seriously. Somebody who wants to be a pastor.

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

It is important that while looking for a college you find one that will fit your belief system and will encourage you in the direction that you are wanting to go in. It you have no idea which direction you are wanting to go, it may be wise to pick a more structured community to live is so that you may gain insight in to what your intrests are and have support and direction to accheive goals that you may have. It is also important that you are able to follow rules of conduct and standards that a school has in place. There is no point in applying and attending a school where you will spend most of your time with faculty and staff dealing with discipline becasue you can't follow the rules. It is also important to find out about the social life of a school before you vist to see if you would be comfortable living in that community. It is wise to vist the school prior to attending.

What's unique about your campus?

THe best thing about my school is the fact that they hold to a strict code of conduct based on the Bible and what the school was founded on. That is unique to our world today. North Central University has a great team of leaders that seek the Lord on direction for the student body and faculty. They desire to see and out pouring of the Holy Spirit on the lives of students as they are equipped to become leaders that are going to change the world.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is bisexual, homosexual, partier, dishonest, dresses immodestly or is rebellious and disrepectful to authority should not attend this school. You must be able to follow the rules that are set by this community. When you apply to this University you will recieve a list of Community Standards which you have to sign in order to apply. If you don't agree, or cannot follow this list of standards while attending school here, please don't apply. You will not start a revoloution to change this school, please don't try. It is already a great place.

Don't waste your time and money on a program you aren't sure about. Choose "undecided" as a major until you are sure.

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

I wish I had known how little room there is for religious differences at this school.

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

Find a college that fits who you are. So if you are musically orientated, find one with a major focus in the arts. Essentially find a school that fits everything about you, whether that is a school close to home or on the other side of the country. Also important is going to a school that is going to stretch you. Do not just go to a place that is comfortable and is easy for you. To the parents, let your children have freedom in where they go and not only that be supportive. They will be muvh more liely to listen if you are being supportive and know you support them in whatever they choose. It is there life and you cannot live it for them.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the on campus community is one fo the best things about the school which is hleped by its smaller size. Also i really enjoy being close to downtown Minneapolis.

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

research and visit the colleges you think you might be interested. Stay over night if possible when you visit. Get to know the area surrounding the colleges so you can get a grasp of what is available, lifestyle, etc. Once you're in, reach out. Do things you may not have before. Look for quality relationships that will last. And although initially you are there for school, don't forget to have fun once in a while.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Some times the clash of beliefs and where you stand vs them ex: liberal vs conservative. The contiuing rising price to attend. And the always on going problems with internet unstability.
