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

It depends on the student. If you're academically oriented, I would suggest a small school over a large or even big name school because interaction with professors proved the most helpful in my academic development. If you're looking for a 'college experience' with a huge sports team, then a big state school might be best for you. I have friends and family who have done both and enjoyed both, but be sure to think about the importance of class sizes and interaction with professors (not TAs) if you're thinking abotu doing graduate work after undergrad.

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

Small classes, great interaction with professors who really care about student success. Friendly and personable faculty and staff. Plenty of leadership opportunities as well. I loved my undergrad.

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

An excellent school that sometimes gets screwed over by the polotics that are played in the higher up offices.

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

Go to the colleges you are thinking of attending. College is a place where you need to feel comfortable and going to the campus' and talking with the students there that are not on the tour faculty will give you a great view of the way the university really functions. College is a very personal choice and you need to make sure you treat it seriously and don't go somewhere just becuase it has a good name. You need to make sure it's right for you.

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

How much some of the things I did in high school would affect scholarship considerations.

Describe the students at your school.

Everyone is really supportive of each other. I'm never afraid to ask a classmate for help inside or outside of class.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

OCU is best known for the arts in the artistic world, the law school in the law world, the nursing school in the nursing world, and the business school in the business world. Though everyone seems to stick to their own group, OCU is especially well known in those areas. However we're primarily known for our music and dance programs.

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

Actually spend a good chunk of time visiting the campus, as well as the surrounding area. Observe as many classes and meet as many faculty and students as you can. Your school is soon to be your home away from home, so you're basically looking for your second family. Be assertive and ask questions. Do not feel as if you are imposing, because the school is probably observing you too. Choose a college you feel comfortable in and inspired by. Oh! And apply for as many scholarships as possible - and do it early!

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

Get as much information about your interested college major before making your decision to attend. Test the waters your freshmen year, and only get involved in a few organizations to start out with.

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

I wish I had known how hard chemistry class is.

Describe the students at your school.

Some of my classmates are very intelligent and focused on what they want to do for the rest of their lives. They are very motivating and up-lifting.

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

Money has been an issue for my family and maybe for many students who will be going to a college or university. I would tell parents and students that they need to pick the school that will give them the highest return on their investment. I don't only mean that financially. The students need to pick the school that they feel best comfortable in, even if its more expensive. The happier the person is the more open they will be to new ideas. The student needs to be in an environment where they learn best and are academically challenged to succeed in the field of their choice. Make the right decision because the years that will follow will be some of the best in your life!

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

Since this is a small campus you really have to get involved. Get involved and become a member of social groups, otherwise you will not enjoy this school very much. Focus on your studies and don't let things get in the way of your dreams.

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

The best advice I could give to anyone looking for the right college for them is to visit as many schools as you are interested in. IT really is just the most important part of chosing some where you will be truely comfortable with. Most people go to see universities with their mind already made up, but one visit can change your mind! When you visit the school you meet the students, the faculty, you get to see the dorms and what the campus feels like. Once you have researched the schools you are interested you have to go see them before you are registering for classes, it can make or break the deal.

What's unique about your campus?

The profesors are very atentive to their students.
