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

Go visit the college and get a feel for the campus and how campus life is. One of the most important things at college is to feel comfortable in the envirement. Also, talk to students other than the ones that the college presents to you so you can get the real story of what goes on on campus.

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

Be sure to stay focused and not get caught up in everything going on around you. It is important to have a good social life, but you will never make where you want in life being lazy. Stay on top of what you need to do, and make sure you finish on time. So get up, and get back to work!

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

When choosing the right college for you it is important to know the size of the school you are comfortable with and how far away from home you want to be. These two things can help students and parents make a general decision on what kind of school is best and in what location. Some other things that are important to consider when choosing a college are the area around the campus ( if there are restaurants, grocery stores, and entertainment close by), the availability and cost of on-campus housing, and the kind of interaction between people on campus. The best advice I can give is to visit a college more than once before making a decision. This allows you to interact with students on campus and decide if they are the people you would want to be around every day. When it comes to making the most of the college experience my advice is to join as many student organizations as possible. This is the best way to make friends who share your interests, and good friends are the key to a fun and well-balanced college experience. Always Choose friends who are supportive of your goals and ambitions.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

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

When choosing which college or university to attend, one must take into consideration the following criteria: degree options, financial commitment, prestige, and campus life. The best way to further explain these criteria is through my personal experience. In 2005, my mother and I conducted a nation-wide search of college dance programs. At first I wanted to double major in Dance and Business, but then I discovered my dream degree: Oklahoma City University?s Bachelor of Science degree in Dance Management. Next we decided if OCU was a reasonable financial option. OCU was pricier than we'd hoped, but never underestimate the power of high SAT/ACT scores, scholarships, and Student Loan programs. Once discovered, OCU appeared everywhere! OCU?s dance and arts management graduates are known worldwide for their technique and professionalism. I had to become a part of it. After visiting OCU I was hooked. I loved the small class sizes, friendly atmosphere, and numerous student organizations. Campus life was exactly what I wanted: fun without being a distraction from my main purpose, my education. Therefore these criteria can help one choose the college that best suits oneself, resulting in the perfect match and ultimate college experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who enjoys small class sizes, a strong sense of community, and always seeing a friend/acquaintance on the way to class. Most people come here for the following majors: dance, theatre, voice, music theatre, business, religion, or nursing. Also, someone who won't be devastated that we don't have a football team, because I was pretty disappointed about that. But don't fret - we have 18 other sports teams you can go watch!

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

Visits are very important, but more important for the student than the parent. The student needs to feel comfortable with the campus, and the parent needs to respect the student's choice even if they feel it's not right. Visiting a campus and touring/speaking with administrators/faculty/staff is critical.

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

The school's large focus on the arts is so heavy that its high-caliber sports don't get enough attention.

a school where your son or daughter can be acedemically happy as well as socially happy what ever that means to them, not having one or the other can take away from the college experience.

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

The class sizes are very reasonable, and the professors know your name. There are no graduate students teaching the classes and grading your papers.

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

Examine your goals, strengths, and weaknesses, and figure out what you want out of your college experience. Then, make a list of schools you may be interested in, and talk to seniors at those schools. See if their experiences sound like what you are hoping for. After you decide on a college, remember that you only have four years there, so make the best them. Meet new people, try new things, and have fun.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

You should not attend this school if your goal is a low paying job, like teaching. This school is just too expensive for that.

College is a different experience to everyone. Find the best possible college that fits you as an individual. It's sometimes hard to come up with the money, but do not let that be the deciding factor holding you back from your dream school. Don't let the work load deter you either. If you work hard you'll get through it. I am a living example of this. I have struggled with severe dyslexia all my life but with the help of my professors and peers I am making a 4.0 this semester! I takes hard work but it is by no means impossible. While the work load is sometimes enourmous, college is also social trainging. It's training for when you go out into the real world. I would go as far to say that college is 50 percent acedemic and 50 percent social. You have to react alot more with your professors to tell them what is going on with your acemdimic life, espeacilly if you go to a small privite college like me. It is sometimes easy to shut yourself off but DON'T. You will be missing out on of what your paying for.

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