Make sure that you are going to a school that has a solid program that you intend to study. However, community is also important. Make sure that you feel at home.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I can't think of anything that really frustrates me. I'm quite satisfied with things even though they could probably improve.

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

College has the potential to be the best investment of your life, but you are the one who determines whether it has fantastic returns or dismal ones. Begin by making a list of skills that you want to build or enhance before you enter the "real world." Don't forget to include social and relational skills, physical or athletic goals, spiritual disciplines, and artistic experiences. Next, think carefully about what teaching styles unlock your imagination and what settings encourage you to thrive. Consider what groups and clubs you want to join. Do not rule out college athletics. Pick two or three schools that meet most of your qualifications and get as much information about them as you can. Compare them point-by-point. Also compare the costs. Remember that some expensive schools compensate with generous scholarships. Visit each campus in person and talk with the staff, faculty, and students. Once you chose a school, the real investment begins. The best school will let you down if you do not take personal, active responsibility for your success. Most shortfalls in any school can be overcome choosing to do whatever it takes to chase your dreams and reach your goals.

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

Unlike many Christian schools, NCU still has a strong majority of staff, faculty, and students who desire to serve God whole-heartedly. It is a very friendly college that does an excellent job of building community. The athletics department is fantastic and has it's priorities in a healthy order. If you want a coach and teammates who will actually care about you as a person and not just as a stat, this is the place for you. If you want small classes and professors who know your name and care about you, this is the place.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Not everyone here wants to serve God. The professors do, the staff does, but some of the students are here because someone made them come here. You have to chose your friends wisely so you don't end up with a crowd that will drag you down. Similarly, there are some hard-working students here and some who spend their entire time watching television, playing nintendo, or wasting their time in any number of other ways. Again, chose wisely. Finally, if you are looking for a school with a strong focus on math and science, I wouldn't recommend NCU.

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

I would tell students and parents to take there time and right down ten interests or wants in their college then look for those wants and make sure atleast your top 3 are in that college. It's important to feel safe and comfortable in the place you learn. Rememeber nothing is perfect, but it can be managable. Good Luck!!

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

Be focused. Some schools have a lot of cool things to offer, but won't necessarily help in your career choice. College is certainly a fun time, but you will have fun regardless. Don't pick a school for it's "enjoyment factor." Pick it because when you graduate from there, you will be ready to go into your field, and be the best possible.

it's religious-affiliated. it is in the city. it's small enough to where mostly everyone knows everyone else. the food is really good, compared to what i've heard about other schools.

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

Look at a lot of different schools. Don't limit yourself to the nicest campus in the best area. Your program is the most important feature to look for in a school. Consider which school will best accommodate you and your needs; you are going to be paying them 60k + over the next four or five years, so be as picky as you want! Do not settle for less than you had originally planned. It can be hard at first, but don't let where your friends are going be the determining factor in where you want to go to school. Your college friends are likely to be the ones that last!

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

Make sure that you research what the school is like. One of the things that really helped me in choosing my school was building a relationship with a current student. It is also very important to visit the school and get a tour from someone specifically a student, because they can get you a little more insight sometimes on what the campus is really like. The staff tours are good as well, for more practical reasons. When you get to college, don't expect it be anything like high school was. It is so much different both academically and socially. Prepare yourself to be challenged and pushed acedemically, it won't always be easy, but you can do it. They wouldn't have accepted you if they didn't think you could.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Those who are interested in a spiritually focused, above average school. If you desire to be a part of a very strong community that builds eachother up and respects eachother. If you wish to leart more about what you believe and understand it better to be able to convey that to other people.

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

Make sure you check out the school before you get there - preferably on a visit day. It can make or break your decision. Just beacuse the website says that they are an awesome school - go there in person first.

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

First, I would suggest looking at as many colleges as possible to make sure that you've covered all of your options. Second, choose a school based on their programs, whether or not they offer the major/classes you're looking for, if it is affordable, if it feels comfortable for you, and if you can see yourself attending. Don't choose a school because your boyfriend/girlfriend or friends are choosing it. You may end up ending your relationship with these people and be stuck in a school that doesn't fit you. To make the most of your college experience, live on campus your first couple of years. The dorms are a great place to meet new friends and to learn how to live in a community. Attend campus events, join clubs, and volunteer in and around your school. Take classes to learn the content and apply it to what you want to do in the future instead of working for the grade alone. Take your education seriously but remember to have fun and enjoy this time in your life. It only happens once!

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

I wish I would have known that it is better to be single your freshman year of college.

I love my friends that I do have, I am not close with everyone though, and in class generally a rule of thumb is the less you talk the sooner you are dismissed from class.
