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

I feel that college has been a valuable experience for a couple reasons. First, being a student that commutes, I was forced to adapt to a very tight schedule. I work two jobs and attend school. In order to make everything fall into place, I have adapted to being very time conscious. If I were to waste an hour, my whole schedule would have been thrown off. Second, I feel that going to a community college has helped because I have developed a good work ethic. My work ethic has really increased since I have been in college. When I was in high school, I did exactly what my boss or teachers made me and that was it. In high school, the teachers and parents would force kids to do their work. Being in college has made me self-motivated because I have to force myself to do the homework. College really begins to show who works hard for what they want and who just does not care. Since I have been in college, I have started paying my own bills, I have been promoted to a manager position at work, and I have been able to organize my time.

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

In short my college experience has provided me with growth. Not only have I grown in scholarly knowledge, but in knowing what I am capable of completing when I set my mind and determination on a selected goal. This experience has also allowed me to go outside of my comfort zones and conquer activities that would cause fear and inaction in the past. An example of this is being able to speak up when no one else is and even to speak when I am unsure if what I am expressing is correct. I have also learned how to communicate better in the written format by particiapting in on-line classes. These types of classes have shown me how a community can be formed and grow even when the particiants are in different locations. I would not trade my colledge expereince for anything and think everyone can experience some form of growth from participating in higher education.

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

I have gotten many insights from my college experience.. Being a young mother of a 2 year old has taught me the importance of college and all that it has to offer. I started off at a technical college and discovered there is so much out there to learn. I have learned how to interact with people of many different ages, how to take responsibility into my own hands, and how to succeed in my future. I believe it is very valuable to attend college. College is our ticket to success in the real world. I want to be a teacher so I have to go to college and get a degree to make sure I can give my students everything they need. Overall college has been a wonderful experience for me so far and has opened up many future opportunities.

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

By going to college I am bettering my life by giving myself a career and not just a job. I will also be one of the first and few people in my family to go to college, and that to me is a wonderful way to give back to my loved ones who gave so much to me.

North Idaho College is a nice community college on the shores of Lake Coeur D'alene, with kind and down to earth staff members and students.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to try and focus more during the first semester of college. I found that the first semester was a little overwhelming and it would have been much easier to focus had I not been working. I could have instead done work study at the college which would have cut out lots of time spent driving the 60 mile round trip it took for me to drive from the college in Coeur D'alene, Idaho to downtown Spokane, Washington. Also, because I didn't go to high school in the same state as the college, I would suggest I be a bit more social and try to make more friends during that first semester because I think it would have helped me to adjust to the new environment a little quicker. The more connections you have, the easier it is to settle in and find activities and groups that fit your educational goals and interests.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are looking for "the college life" as in frat parties, this is not the school for you. This is a calm, laid back community college in the heart of downtown Coeur D'alene, Idaho.

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

I feel that NIC(North Idaho College) is more of people college i guess you could say. What i mean by that is, it's a comfotable atmosphere. Its been 14+yrs. since i last attended school, and i was so nervouse until i actually went and spoke to an advisor, he was straight up, honest and very helpful. The other schools i looked into basically told me what i wanted too hear, not what i needed to hear.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior the advise i would give myself would be, STAY FOCUSED on what's important! Think long and hard about your future, because life can, and in your(our) case, will be a struggle. Life shouldn't be, and doesn't have to be that way though. If you make the right choices, finish school and go straight into college before you make the bad choices I made, it will be so much better. Besides, you'll have 3 beautiful daughters that will need you, and setting a good example to them will make a huge impact on there future!

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

When speaking to my friends about NIC i'd have to say that i brag mostly about the atmosphere of it all. I'm a big believer in comfort zones, and well, at NIC, i'm very comfortable.

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

If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself to lighten up about people and to work harder for my education. I would tell myself to go and do things out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about North Idaho College is definetly the teachers. The teachers at NIC care about you and what is going on in your life. They want to help as best they can but they also dont smother you.

I wouln't wait to get it done i would tell myself to just go and get everything done so your in college and no worry. and that i wouldn't have wasted my time on the first school i went to which was an aviation mechanics course when i knew i didn't like mechanics in the fisrt place at all. but just get into school and get it done with so you don't have to worry about not getting in or not having the money.

What's unique about your campus?

i consider the best thing about my school is that its smaller and my classes are five minutes from each other for walking and only twenty minutes from home and its on the lake. there are not a lot of people and that makes classes way better.
