There is element of religion and Chistianity at my school that can be intimitating in the beginning. I have learned that even though we my not be Christians and have conflicting religious affiliations we can still work together and share our lives with each other through prayer.

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

Parents do not hover over your children during the first years of college, because students learn many valuable liofe lessons during college. I can garantee see some choices are not going to be the best choices but this will lead to a stronger individual later in life. Try to support your child the best you can, and the will succeed. Also go for what you want in a college, and if it doesn't work out, there's always plan B. Don't be afraid to take advantage of school resources such as counseling, tutoring and other activies provided by the school and student body. Get invovled!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school, like others, is completely defined by the amazing individuals who work/study hard in their field and encourage, instruct, and guide any and all people around them as often as their social, academic, spiritual, or leadership position allows.

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

I am a student admissions counselor and interact with high school students on a regular basis concerning this issue. Of course, before a school can be eligible for consideration it must offer the right major(s) and should be affordable for the student. In addition, a campus visit (hopefully including a few nights in the dorms/apartments and class visitations) prove vital in almost every case. A student's heart deserves to embrace a new environment. From this time spent on campus one establishes an instinct toward the university, which proves vital for future conduct, respect, involvement, energy, and effort in one's future college lifestyle. If a student senses even a slight ownership in a selected school their performance and attitude will be healthy and resilient to the adjustments and pressures of university life. However, my experience concludes that above all the assessment of the quality of the staff and faculty must be involved when choosing a university to attend. Regardless of an excellent student body, a community will be incomplete without the involvement and heart of the professors who touch students' lives every day. A student's academic success improves if professors prove caring, respectable, energetic, and personable.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those who dislike religious presence and spiritually emphasized conversations ( that is not necessarily coservative or liberal) between people of the administration, faculty, and student body may not apperciate this school's greatest strength. Most people of every background can fit in comfortably here, but it really depends on the demeaner of one's academic class. A student should be fairly comfortable with a small school environment. I would discourage a person who engages in drug use or even alcohol consumption from attending this school - it makes for pretty rough road that normally does not lead to one's graduation.

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

Apply to a lot of colleges. Don't just assume one or two is enough. The more colleges you apply to the more they will fight over you. Oh, and get good grades!

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

The other day one of the professors in my department invited me over to have thanksgiving dinner with her and her family. I feel like I truly know my professors, they are not simply a stranger behind a podium.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

What financial aid? If you are not the son or daughter of some sort of Nazarene pastor or missionary then you feel rather on your own.

Search out all school options that fit your needs regardless of their costs. You can then narrow them down by the packages they offer you. You need to pick out schools that have the major or majors your are looking for. Also other majors of interest, because it is not uncommon for a student to change their minds during the college process. Make sure you pick colleges that have a climate you will like as well as an area you are comfortable in. It is important to feel comfortable in your surroundings as well as being comfortable in the classroom. Always give a school a year before deciding it is not for you. Sometimes it takes that long to get acquainted with the area, the school and the people.

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

The students are more friendly and share a closer friendship with each other. Proffessors will go out of their way to help students succeed in the classes they are taking. Even the students are willing to help each other to succeed in school.

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

When selecting a college look at the people who a student will be assosiating with and how much proffessors are willing to take out their time to help students. Also parents need to look at the availability of extracaricular activities that their child might be interested in.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who wishes to get a broad spectrum of learning. A person who is willing to work hard for grades and someone who does not let failure affect their quality of work for the worse.

Go visit the campus before hand and get to know the professors that you may have with your intended major.

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

I already knew just about everything because I had visited the campus before. Plus I had heard things from an older sibling.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

How conservative it is. The mind set is SO conservative that most the time faculty can not see outside of the box.
