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

Make sure you ask alot of questions and take more than one tour. Talk to some of your professors in the field of study that you want to go into and make sure you like them. Make sure you look at housing and how much books and everything is ging to cost. Make sure it is the right distance you want to be away from your family.

Choose whatever feels right. I would highly reccommend getting away from home to gain independence but staying close enough to home that you stll have a little bit of comfort and a place to go! :)

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

look at all the options and if you know the major look at resources and courses offered, what looks to be best for the students future and how much the student will learn for the price. also if it is an enviroment you want to be in. even though cost shouldn't matter it tends to so financial aid and scholarships should be a factor but not a main one when deciding a college to go to.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you like and are comfortable with small towns. after a while there is not much to do on weekends. if you have a lot of friends and things to do back home it is a big change. depends on your major if this is your best choice.

The advice that I would give the student is tour the campus before you pick. Because you might think you know because of pictures but once you get there it is different. Also to get the most out of college is join club/ groups that you want. By doing that not only will you meet new people but you will also find that you share a lot of the same things. Those people will make college feel like home. Also call home to mom or dad they would love to here from you. My advice to the parents is let your student pick the school because they know what they like and want. Also send them letters once in a while, it is always nice to get mail from home. A care package is the best maybe some cookies added in. It is just an idea!

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

I wish that I knew how hard it is to room with someone you don't know.

My advice would be to visit alot of schools, and find the one that really fits who you are. Make sure it has everything you want in a communitiy as well as school, as well as social things. You will know when you find the school thats right for you.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A very laid back easy going person, who is ready to experience growing up with a little help.

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

When you're looking for a college, don't find the college and see if it has what you want. Make a list, and then look at each individual college. Compare them and see which college meets the most off of your list. Make sure there's a variety of things on your list. Cost, the quality of education, quality of living arrangements, students, and surroundings are all important, but so are convenience and fun. What's the use of going to the best school with the best numbers and the highest tuition if you don't enjoy it. Make sure you pick a college that you can be proud to be a part of and wear the colors proudly. Once you're on the campus of your choosing, don't stop looking at it. If you're not happy, don't let yourself get stuck there. Give yourself other options. And then, of course, work hard in class. Use the help that the campus provides. It's there for a reason. Join a few groups, but make sure it's something that interests you. Don't make a dedication to something you're going to grow to hate.

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

Study habits are an important asset to college classes. If you don't know how to read the book and study and take notes on your own, you're most likely going to struggle. There are also very few classes that are possible to pass if you don't put a lot of effort into them.

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

Maryville itself gets far colder than anything I'm used to, which makes walking to class almost unbearable. Also, there should be a kitchen, or at least a sink to do dishes in, on each floor of the Dorm Halls. Having to go to the basement every time dishes need to be done is a pain in the butt. Also, there aren't a lot of quiet, comfortable places to study, especially with internet access. And wireless internet should be available to everyone as long as they have their s-number and password (including off-campus computers.)
