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

I would tell them to make sure they find a school that they are looking for. They need to get in mind what kind of atmosphere they want to be around and the types of people they want to meet. I would encourage them to get involved and volunteer to make the best out of their college experience.

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

We have a lot of school spirit, and I have the best professors!

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

The worst part about my school is that parking is very little and you are only allowed to park in the designated area that you buy your parking pass for and they way over priced.

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

Go with what your heart says, and if you dont know then go anyways, there are people to help you decide. Life is about making hard decisions and at college you learn to deal with them and make wise choices. It is the best way to transition into real life. And the experiance is worth every penny you spend.

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

I would incourage students and/or parents to find a school where you would feel the most comfortable with the type of students that go there as well as the surroundings. Most all schools have good education programs, so if the schools one is looking at already has a good education program and professers, then really one of the most important things is for the student to be comfortable in their surroundings. The way the weather is is something that can really be a downer or upper for the student and social life and activities are another thing that can really effect one's college experiance. Also making the most out of college is a must. I would advise to do as many school activites and attend as many events as one can, because you only have this college experiance once in one's life, so definatly do not waste it. A student should really saviour the time they spend and the things they learn while at college.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

someone who is really conservative shouldn't go here. Also someone who doesn't like the cold and snow.

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

Get a school that creates great internships and gets people involved with their campus and community. A school is not only an adventure in itself but is supposed to help you with your next adventure. Your career.

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

I attend NAU - Yuma. Yuma is a growing city so the campus itself is located in the middle of homes. In addition, there are few programs available to offer students. In addition, the campus is divided with Arizona Western college.

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

I would first tell the student to visit as many colleges as possible and go to the one that really makes you smile when you get there. Go to a place that you feel most comfortable because you will need to surround yourself in an environment that relaxes you when all the school work feels overwhelming. The perfect college is out there, a place the has both your prosepective major as well as a nice atmosphere. To the parents I would say that while it is definately okay to add in your opinion, let you child make the finally decision and support them. It is your child who will spend the next few years of their life there and they need to be somewhere they appreciate and enjoy. Most of all though, your support in such a big decision will only make them appreciate you more and work harder throughout there college experience.

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

There aren't so many students that you never run into yyour friends unexpectedly. You can usually count on someone being in the doning areas when you want someone to eat with. The environment is very clean and very friendly.

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

One of the most important things in my opinion to finding the right college, is making sure that you like the atmosphere of the campus. Try to visit the campus Before you choose it. If it's too far away, check out some pictures or talk to someone who's been there. Living in an area that you don't like can stress you out, and the last thing you need is more stress. Think about the weather, the size and population, and the kind of activities available. Don't focus entirely on the atmosphere. You want to make sure the education is going to be right for you. Keep in mind what you want to study, but that people tend to change their major. How to make the most of college? Get out of your room! Take a walk around campus. Relax. Join a team, club, or check out a fraternity/sorority(they don't all follow the stereotypes that you've heard of; some are service or professional). Be open to the thoughts and opinions of others. Say hi to people you don't know. You're likely to make some new friends that might last a lifetime.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who doesn't like the cold, or who is unable to accept people who are different.

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

Don't rush into this, and also dont procrastinate. It takes a lot of dedication and persistence to find the right college for you. Remember, mistakes will be made, and if the college you chose is not right for you, then transferring to another that fits you better is the way to go.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is able to go to a school that is relaxing and can live in a small town.

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

Work is limited, and often the weather is a burden

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

When choosing a 4 year university be prepared to work hard and focus on a specific major. Before attending school observe and/or intern in the field that you are interested in before starting a major that leads you down a career choice that doesn't suit your skills.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Lazy, looking for a hand out, non - ambitious
