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

If you have a general idea of your major or field of interest, research all of the schools that provide a degree within that field and narrow your list down to the schools that best fits your needs. After you have created a list of schools, research the activities, clubs, sports, etc., that you are interested in within each school. It is important that you find a school that has a strong college for your specific major, minor, and/or field of interest, but also one that sponsors activities that you are interested in.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the College of Education. This school has the best school of education in the state, and those who wish to become the best teacher they can possibly be tend to choose Northern Arizona University. The faculty is extremely knowledgeable and professional. As a student, I know that I can always seek the advice of one of my professors when in need.

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

The advice I would give to future college students is to find a school that works best for all of your needs. Find a school that has the major you want and the financial aid you need to attend the school. Everyone is different in their needs as a student so find the school that can best help you be who you want to be in the future. Choosing the right college is difficult so in order to organize your thoughts, make a checklist of what you think you need from the school or at the school. Then compare the schools you are interested in. Also go and visit the schools, once on campus many people find that they just feel like they belong at that school. To make the most of your college experience, I would advise you to get involved in something that you are passionate about. Also, make friends in college, because those people will be your friends for life.

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

i would consider the worst part about NAU is the neighborhoods surrounding NAU. It is scary to walk through them, they are also very run down.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

for me being a student athlete, the most frustrating thing is not have enough time to get extra studying in or have time to meet with professors because of my busy schedule

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

I would tell prospective students and their parents that going to community college first is a viable alternative to going straight into a 4 year university. If you aren't sure what you would like to get you're degree in, going to a 4 year university can potentially waste a lot of time and money. Also, it helps to speak to a college counseler before you enroll in classes each semester so that you can make sure you are still on track to graduate in four years. Having a job while in college is also beneficial, if you have the time while going to school, having a job teaches you to manage you're time more wisely as well as teach you financial responsibility. Last but not least, look around for grants and scholarships and fill out a FAFSA, there is money out there for students who want to work for it. It can make the cost of college impact you and you're parents a lot less, saving you money in the long run.

At least narrow down your school choices by the enviornment you want to learn in, and than go based off from the potiential they can offer you. Money is always an issue sure, but their are a way around that.

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

This school is quiet, it's in a small community and the school is literally centered in the town. There is alot of interaction between students and towns people and for the most part all of the students know eachother.

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

I think it is imperative and students visit a campus before they decide to attend. They should probably stay overnight as well in order to get more of a feel for the campus community and the students in that community. When picking a college its important to pick one where you feel comfortable in your surroundings, you think you might experience something you never had before, and one in which you will be academically challenged. Making the most of your college experience is simple; go into every class with an open mind, you may learn something or meet someone you never thought you would, and develop good time management, that way you will be able to get your work done in an efficient manner and still have a fun social life. Make sure to take in all your campus has to offer you, it will be the experience of a lifetime.

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

The worst thing about my school would have to be that there weren't enough sports and that there was a lack of diversity when i attended. I wanted to opportunity to be around people of a more diverse ethnic backgrounds and I wanted to view and maybe even participate in some sports that were not offered.

Visiting the colleges so you get a feel for the campus and what the students are like. It is important to find the right fit and you will know just by seeing the college in person.

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

The advice I would give parents, is to listen to your child when choosing the right school. After all, they are the one's going to school (you can't relive your glory days through them). Give lists of affordable colleges if cost is an issue. And if your child chooses a school that is out of your price range, make a solid effert to look into all financial aid and scholarships to make that school choice a reality. But other than that, let them decide what college they think is best for them. As a student trying to find the right school for you, I recommend touring the college and imagine yourself living there. Does it fit? Do you see yourself living and studying there? I toured over 30 schools and I only felt that way about one school. And that school is where I have spent 3 almost 4 years now! Choose a school that feels like it could be an exciting challenge, but not too far out of your element of comfort. And when you get there, involve yourself with groups or activites that make you feel a part of your chosen campus!

What's unique about your campus?

The small classroom size really helps students to not be intimidated or scared out of asking questions or participating in classroom discussions.

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

Make sure you can deal with he snow and the altitude. The campus is small compared to the othe state schools but it is interactive and really diverse. You won't have a problem finding a niche to identify with. The professors are nice, kind, and caring as long as you make sure they know who you are; so get to know them. The cost is worth the beauty of both the campus, and the education. The people are generally nice, and the RA's are genuinely interested in creating community.

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

How hard it would be to be a Christian on campus.
