Describe your favorite campus traditions.

NSU is known for its areas of nursing and physcology. The Crew/Rowing team is also nationally known. For the Louisiana Scholars' College, students are known for their work in research along with the professors, and successes in internships. NSU is also a part of the ISEP program, in which students have the ability to study abroad at the price it costs to attend NSU.

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

As a young adult making the treck into the 'real world', you have to ask yourself some things before making important decisions: What do you want to do with your life? What makes you happy? What is your ultimate goal? When you consider these things, make them a part of your future. If you force yourself through something you don't love or have any passion for, chances are you will end up with a job you find more of a chore than anything else. It is your life, and you only have one- so why not do something that you love and will wake up every morning happy to do? Don't allow anyone else to make your plans. If it is what you truly want, and what you truly love, go for it!

What's unique about your campus?

I attend the Lousiana Scholars' College at NSU, and I believe it is a humongous asset. The academics are challenging and create situations where students have to think for themselves, and work in ways that will help them in the future. There are many areas you can study, and even "create your own major" through the Scholars' Core program. I highly suggest LSC for anyone who wants a fun challenge with close knit families like ties. There is also an amazing opportunity for studying abroad with the ISEP program. You shouldn't miss out on something like that!

Compromise with your child. My mother wanted me to stay close to home but I wanted to move away. I am now attending a college that's an hour away and I'm still getting an awesome education! Also, do not force your child into any clubs, organizations, fraternities or sororities but do encourage them to get involved. This is an important asset in college because you can meet other people who can help you out with your classes and you will have a social life which is really important because you can't study ALL the time!

To find the right college, do some research on schools and the program of interest that each school offers. The factors to consider are cost, quality of program of interest, and overall atmosphere. Visit colleges to get an idea of the overall atmosphere. Ask yourself if the college has a friendly environment and if the surrounding community is friendly. As for making the most of the college experience, I would say get involved. Join intramural sports teams. Keep an eye out for student-sponsored activities such as movie nights, concerts, etc. Maybe even join a fraternity or sorority. Last but not least, make friends. The friends you make in college will be your friends for life.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school is in a town I think is a little small for my taste. There is not a lot to do off-campus in this town.

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

When looking for the right college you want to remember this pay attention to the cost of attendance, the size of the campus and the amount of students there, the location, and whether or not it has your major of field of study. It would be in your best interest to select the school that is best for your major and that is known for producing successful people in that field of study. To the students always remember to make the choice that is best for you because parents sometimes have a way of manipulating you to choose the school that they want you to attend. To the parents remember to help the student make the best decision for them and don't try and make it for them, and when the student is going off to college it is important that the parent believes that they have done the best job in parenting and are able to let go enough so that the student can make their own mistakes and learn from them. Students once you make it to college don't be afraid to socialize because there is another world of people out there to meet.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is goal-oriented and knows what they want out of life. Someone who is not big on the party scene and won't mind a lot of peace and quiet. I hope whoever decides to attend won't mind being in a small country town.
