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.)

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

The advice I would give students about finding the right college is to find a college where you feel most at home. The environment of the college should be friendly and welcoming. It should fit your personality with the campus size and style. In order to make the most of your college experience, you need to expand your friend network. You can spend your whole college years immersing yourself in your schoolwork, sequestered away in your room. However, after you have graduated, you will not have the long lasting friendships that college is good at forging. Get out, get involved, and don't be afraid to meet new people!

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

I would say - go with your gut. Even if your student hasn't decided on what they want their major to be... go with that college that seems more like what you and they are looking for. Don't be shy. Try new things... cause after you graduate, It's a whole different world. :)

What kind of person should attend this school?

A Person who isn't afraid of work. A person who is willing to break out of the shell. A person who is looking for a place just far enough away from home that the parents aren't just going to stop in at any moment, but still close enough to go home and do laundry.

Northwest Missouri State University is a strong Football school that has a hertigage of education being emphasis in the college.

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

I would advise for students and Parents to search for colleges that really allows you/or your child to flourish. Go out and see the different university at the tours and contact if possible students from that college. One other thing you could do is go find out where the teachers went to for college to get a perspective from them. This would give you an Idea wether you would be confortable coming to the univerity/college. I would of course advise you to do some research online about the college. I believe that looking at the university by th strengths of program is good. However I believe people put to much emphasis on it as they choose the school. If you do not feel comfortable about going to the university you more then likely will struggle and not work as easily in classes. The school websites would be biased to you going there so then you would have to search sources that aren't biased. My Best Advisement is to pick a college/university that you are comfortable with going to classes, activities, and living at.

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

The campus is very nice compact yet with beauty. The teachers really do put time in to help you out in classes and career help. If you need any help the school really has the resources for you too get it. We have a specific Tutoring program and many of the GE courses have an Student Instructor which helps you out. The school really strives itself to be two things Technically Advanced and Environmentally friendly. Every Student gets a Laptpop for them to use and the computers updated. The school itself has a Recycling program which gives the University Energy.

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

I would advise the students to seek out the university that has a broad range of majors to choose from, because statistically they will switch at least once. I would also advise them to decide if they really want a "party" college, or if they are going for an education, and base part of their decision on that.

Stay open minded. College has a lot to offer as long as you take full advantage of what is around you.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

This school is best known for being an electronic campus as well as one of the best educational schools around. This campus provides any student with a laptop. Also, there is a lab school on campus. This is very beneficial for elementary education majors such as myself because we are involved in the classroom our very first year of school.

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

When you are deciding on a college it is important to put your best interest first. Don't choose a school just because thats where all of your friends are going. This decision has a huge impact on your future. Its not like high school. College is expensive and you should put every consideration to thought. You should choose a school that is affordable and is the most suitable for the major you are considering. Once your in college, you should most importantly focus on academics, but still get involved even if its just a little bit. Its not necessary to get involved right away, just gradually do a few activities so you can also enjoy yourself while in college. Most importantly, academics should always come first, but having a little fun every once in awhile will help ease the stress of school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is very outgoing because there are so many activites always goin on.

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

Take your time and find the school that has what you are looking for. Tour the school and more times then not you will feel more comfortable on one campus then another. Make sure you really want to go there before you decide to go to a certain college. Get involved make lots of friends and have fun, but make sure you study and do good in your classes hard work makes fun/free time more fun.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There is not a lot of things to do because it is located in a small town. Sports are good but on weekends there isn't a lot to do.
