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

It is an amazing community that allows students to learn, grow, and achieve greatness while they are attending school here and the faculty and staff work hard to assist students in not only learning in the classroom but also learning about life skills.

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

Looking back at my transition from high school to college, I realize that, overall, the transition was quite smooth, but before long my visualizations of what I thought college woul be like, changed drastically. When I was living at home, I said I would move to college and never come home. A month after move-in I found myself on the road headed home. I never fully appreciated the comfort and warmth my childhood home held. Now, I have found myself going home about once a month to enjoy the wonderful feelings that home evokes. Having lived several hours from home helped me to fully appreciate not only home, but also my family. Now, I realize how wonderful my life is and am thankful for the loving family that I have been given. While in high school, if anyone would have told me I would go home every month, be excited when a package from home shows up in the mail, or look forward to the family visiting I would have called them insane. Therefore, I would give my high-school-self the advice to value home more while I am there becuase everything is about to change shortly.

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

Campus is beautiful, especially in the fall when the leaves change color and it is arranged very conveniently for almost every student.

From other schools, I think this school is a more tight knit family almost. The pride that this school carries is tremendus and is something that a lot of people enjoy here. The size is just perfect, not too big but not a small town feel either.

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

I would make sure to take as many classes as possible in my senior year. And by that I mean varrying. In doing so you will better prepare yourself for college. There were some classes that just threw me for a loop. I would also say to make sure you know a couple people on campus. It makes the first couple weeks fun and easier. You'll always know some one on campus that you can hang out with and eat some meals with. Make sure to get involved with whatever you can on campus. Be prepared to be introduced to new things. Don't come in with a closed mind. The more open and understanding you are of everything the better your experience is.

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

Dear Amy, I know this is a busy time in your life as you are trying to finish high school strong and still get ready for college next year. Although you are doing a good job, don't forget to have some fun and relax. I know everyone tells you this and how fast it is going to go, but it is really true. You will really appreciate it later if you make some fun memories during your senior year. I also know that you are nervous for next year, but don't worry. Everything is going to work out fine. It may be stressful at first and you may feel all alone at times, but don't worry things will get better. Be confident in yourself and don't be ashamed to ask for help, it OK not to know everything. Stay strong and keep up the good work, it will pay off. Love, Amy

What's unique about your campus?

I think one of the best things about my school is that it is a dry campus. This means no alchol is allowed on campus. I appreciate this rule and I think it helps keep the campus a safer place.

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

I would have to say the worst thing about my school is walking outside is the winter. I wish the parking lot could be more centralized and that more of the buildings could be connected by skywalks or something.

Describe the students at your school.

In the large classrooms my classmates are more quite and are not as friendly, but in my small classes people interact more and you get to meet new people which is always a plus!

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

I would tell myself, " Amanda, don't listen to what everyone else says about having plenty of time to pick a major. Yes, you do have time but once you get into college it is even more overwhelming to try to pick one then when you are in high school. Also at the beginning talk to everyone, you need to make connections and get involved to make the transition easier. Oh, and another thing I honestly don't recommend that you start dating anyone before you go to college if they plan on staying in your hometown and you plan on leaveing because it just adds stress and confusion to starting your new life and it may ruin your friendship that you had before you started to date. Finally, have fun and be yourself, if people don't like you it's their loss and you will find wonderful people like you to be friends with."

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

The worst thing would have to be that there are to many opportunities to do things or become involved in that I want to do so many but don't have enough time or money to be in as much as I would like.

There are so many words to describe the classmates I have met so far including friendly, ambitious, helpful, and easy to reach out to.

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

The first thing I would tell my high school senior self is to stay eternally positive. Being a positive person not only keeps your own attitude upbeat, but draws others to you. I think for most college freshmen there comes a time when you feel down, alone, and lost. You are in a new place, everything is unfamiliar, and you are away from your friends, family, and everything else that you are used to. But you get through it, and soon things look up. If you give in and give up during the hard times, you aren't giving yourself the chance to turn things around. Instead, you need to stay positive and trust that soon enough you will adjust, learn how to function in the new place, and make awesome friends. Don't let yourself fall short of being happy.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There is absolutely no one who cannot fit in here at NDSU. There are so many people with every kind of personality, ethnicity, and religion. Of course, the best way to ensure you fit in is to be friendly and laid back. Don't sweat the small stuff, try not to judge others, and don't be scared to talk to the person sitting next to you. Even after only one semester here, I have friends in almost every class. As long as you make a small effort, people here are very easy to reach out to. :)

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

As a sophomore in college, I feel I have not found the right path in college quite yet. As a high school senior I thought it would be easy to find myself. So many students around me know exacltly what they want to do in life. But I am lost. I have accomplished declaring my major in Apparel and Textiles and Business Management. In the beginning as a freshman, I was confused and overwhelmed by all the choices offered. There are so many careers to choose from, it seems almost impossible to know what path is right for you. If I could go back to talk to myself as a high school senior I would say this. Do not be afraid of taking risks. Put yourself out there and hope for the best. Once you start to take chances, you find yourself and what works for you. Never be anyone but yourself and you will succeed in life. Now that I understand what it takes to be successful in college, nothing can stop me from success.

What's unique about your campus?

North Dakota State University has a variety of resources and the entire staff is committed to helping the students attending the institution. The best part about NDSU are the professors in both the programs I am enrolled in. Every professor I have had strive to push their students to success. It creates determination and feuls my ambition to do well in school. Not only are the professors great resources for the classroom, but for life as well. I go to them to seek advice on friendships, financial problems, and ways to succeed. Their knowledge is a vessel.

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

I would advise my self to apply for only non-local scholorships since university supported scholorships are less selective and easier to obtain.

Although I enjoy the academic opportunities at North Dakota State University, I don't appreciate the cold weather or the sluggish road construction.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school has a great campus with many amenities offered. They are great when it comes to distance education and assisting their students to achieve maximum potential for success. The professors and advisors that I have met so far are very kind and will make time in their busy schedules to help you out when you need it.

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

If I had a chance to go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to stay strong and focused because the hardest of times are yet to come. I would explain that college life gives you so many opportunities to make something of yourself and if you follow your dreams and shoot for the stars, you can do anything you put your mind to. Just as the saying goes, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams!" I attended a 2-year college already and I have never been so proud of myself as the day I graduated with honors and received my Associate in Applied Science Degree in Practical Nursing. I now plan to receive my RN Bachelor's Degree. Therefore, another thing that I would tell myself as a high school senior is, "Go to college and make yourself and your family proud and don't give up when times get hard!"

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If a person is not fully commited to applying their knowledge to achieve their goal of success, they should not attend this school. It is an honor to be accepted to such a great university so I do not recommend attending if you are not going to focus and try hard to reach your goals.
