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

The first semester is the hardest--just wait it out. It may be hard being away from home, or seem to expensive, or too much work, but just wait it out--it will get better! And even if you don't think going Greek (sorority/fraternity) is right for you, try it anyway--even if you choose not to become Greek or become Greek and quit later, you'll still meet a lot of amazing people that may end up being lifelong friends. Also take advantage of on-campus housing your freshman year, and leave your door open for the first few weeks--you'll meet a lot of people you wouldn't meet otherwise.

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

I would tell them to look for the right feel for their children. The schools needs to have a major they will be interstead in, also the right kind of atmosphere. Meaning the right kind of people, laid back, or really fast moving people, with the right kind of feeling, so people who are study freaks, or people who like to have more parites, or somewhere in between. Also they need to have the right kind of classes, like choir, or band. After all of that make sure you can see your child there, can you see them walking around the campus fitting in, and being part of the college life. If you can see that, and your young college student can too, then you have yourself a good college, no matter D1, D2, or even community.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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

Finding the right college is a big descion, and I think that the best way to decide is to write out all the pros and cons and take into account everything, from living enviroment, weather, the town the college is in, and the career placement rates. And making the most out of the college experience would be getting involved in anything, the student senate, greek life, attending the games, and meeting people within your major. Get to know upperclassmen so you can learn about classes you have to take and the teacher that you should take them with! And just enjoy, I am not saying it is going to be the best for years of your life but it is the time you can make mistakes, learn from then, succeed, and find out who you really out and what you can achieve!

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

There is really nothing horrible about this school but the Union where we go get our food could be better and more choices in what was can eat.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that hates snow or can't stand to see snow from the End of Nov to about the Beginning of March. The weather in the winter is cold and snowy all the time. So if you hate the cold snow and ice. I would not suggest this school.

Northwest Missouri State has a lot of school spirit. Being a football player that was a big influence on my decision to come to school here. I like having a big crowd at all the football games.

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

Go to a school based on what you think about it. Dont choose a school because your friends are going to go there because chances are you are going to make a lot of new friends. Choose a place that you feel comfortable and at home and you think you will be given a chance to get a good education.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The one thing that is most frustrating to me is trying to decide whether I want to go out or stay in on school nights. There is usually something going on every night of the week so it makes it tough to decide.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are highly aware that paying attention in classes is important, helping others is common, and personal originality is expected.

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

"When searching for the right college for you remember to always look at all aspects of the school, such as the academic involvement from professors, student-teacher class ratio, school activities offered, surroundings, classes offered, cost, and location. Students that make the right choices are more likely to succeed than the students that make the wrong ones."

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

The worst thing about my college would be my battle with keeping my social life separated from my school work. I have struggled to stay in school. Many professors recommend help, but don't offer enough. I'm in a prgram called Student Support Services (SSS) that Northwest Missouri State University offers is somewhat helpful but also provide activities(social involvement) that I shouldn't attend; I should be studying instead. I meet new people, but this school don't focus enough on the students amount of studying, they focus more on student involvement and social activities.

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

Northwest feels like one big family. There is very much a sense that everyone is here to help you. Overall, this campus is one of the most inviting places I've ever been.

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

In my opinion, college is more than just a series of programs and classes designed to earn a degree. So much of what is learned in college has nothing to do with class work. There is a very deep personal evolution that takes place during the college years, perhaps even more so than in high school. Thus, finding the right college means a little more than looking for one with a multitude of degress or a sterling reputation. A good college needs to serve as a true home away from home in which one feels comfortable to grow and explore their potential. The allure of a good college is not how fancy the buildings are or how expensive the equipment in the classes is. Rather, it's the feeling of belonging, of acceptance and encouragment that should spark an interest. For myself, this inviting sense was almost palpable at Northwest and I believe it is because of this enviornment that I have both the confidence and the drive to succeed in the real world. In the end, discovering the right college is like falling in love: it may be unexplainable, but once it happens you know it.

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

The only thing I wish I would have known prior to attending was that gas prices were going to rise so high. Since Northwest is located in a smaller town, it is often necessary to drive to other cities for shopping. This can sometimes add up and I occasionally wished I had taken this financial burden into consideration, although it really isn't that much of an issue.
