I wish I would have known that I would be only one of about three women in each of my classes.

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

Parents and students should make every effort to visit colleges they are intersted in. They should reach out to their network of friends and family to get recommendations or insights into different colleges. Students should ensure that the college they attend has academic programs that meet their needs. Other resources, such as tutoring and counseling, are also important factors to consider. Some schools help parents keep up with what's happening on campus with newsletters designed specifically for parents. Students can make the most of their college experience by being open to new experiences and new ideas. Both parents and students should remember that grades aren't everything and college can be about more than just book learning.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Serious students who are more intersted in learning than building relationships should attend OIT. Students who value small classes and personalized attention from professors would be a good fit. The school is great for students studying engineering or computer science.

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

I would advise them to visit the campus and interact with instructors, students and faculty. I would also encourage them to stay overnight to get a feel for the community and campus atmosphere. I would especially research the programs offered and the emploability of graduates and interview current students and graduates of your chosen path.

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

Hands on experience, practical, great opportunity to learn and small enough to be a part of a family at OIT

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

The level of expectation is high and the student body is very competative. I have seen those who are indecisive or who generally were good students in high school , struggle because they don't realize how much they need to apply themselves to succeed. This could also be attributed to being young and undisciplined, at least until they complete their first semester. However, having an unsuccessful first semester can put you out of phase for some programs.

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

As both a current non-traditional student and parent of a teenager about to enter college, I have done quite a bit of preparation and research into colleges. I believe it is of great importance to know your student/self. The student needs to evaluate what their goals, strengths and weaknesses, and comfort zones are. Once the student understands these, they should search for the college that best suits their educational goals along with the environment they would be most comfortable to develop in. The college experience is one that will test your abilities, stretch your knowledge, and provide many alternative learning experiences; all of which will allow you to grow and develop into a well rounded adult. However, there can be many distractions and temptations on a students first experience away from home. It is important they know themselves and how they will react in such situations, so as not to stray from their initial goals. While majors may change, college should be a unique experience where friendship and knowledge are gained on a students pathway to a successful and fulfulling career.

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

I would have to say because of the size of the student body, there are limited classes offered at different times of the year. This generally speaking would be the humanity classes, since we are a technical school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

OIT is best known for their excellent education, health profession programs, and engineering. The staff and faculty are committed to the success of the students. The collegiate sports are important to mention, too. The OIT men's basketball team is number one in the NAIA conference and are the national champions.

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

My advice to parents and/or students trying to find the right college is to go to informational meeting and take campus tours. You can get a lot out of viewing how the college runs and what types of people are there. Talking to current students will give you insight on the quality of the instructors and opinion of the school. Also, make sure that the school you choose has a variety of programs you have interest in because many freshman can change their major as many as 20 times. Once you are at the college of your choice, get involved with different people and activities. Join clubs and study groups so you have a positive college experience and have support groups when times get tough. People are more successful when they have positive support groups and friends they can trust. Last but not least, study hard to get good grades and make time for leisure so you do not get overwhelmed.

What's unique about your campus?

The instructors are phenominal. They are intelligent, caring, and want you to be successful. They are great resources and want you to achieve all your goals. The instructors have the education and experience that makes you look up to them and respect them. They are definitely held in high regard.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

OIT offers education in healthcare and other high demanding fields that attract students from everywhere! OIT is best known for the job success after college. I believe about 90% of the students that graduate from OIT find jobs in their career field within months of graduation. OIT is also one of the top schools known for their basketball team coached by Danny Miles.

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

I believe OIT is the best college located in Oregon and well known for its highest success rate of job placement after graduation. I would suggest to parents to visit the college, talk to current students and explore the opportunities your child would have by attending OIT. This college is one that can really help make a difference in ones life. However, you get out of it what you put in to it. I believe you have to be dedicated and self disciplined to succeed at OIT. You can find support among students, instructors, and tutors but you have to be willing to put forth the time and effort to get the extra help. I highly recommend you have a major selected when you apply for college. Having a plan and personal goals will help you through the tough times of college. You will also want to confirm your goals by interviewing people in your future career field. I believe you will succeed at OIT if you have defined goals with an ambitious attitude.

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

The worst thing about OIT is the parking. I love everying about the school but the parking is not always the best. The campus is pretty large and a student has to walk pretty far from vehicle to class which can be a bummer when its snowing or raining.

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

First, take a year off after high school. Durring that year move out of house, get a job and experience life a little bit. If you can, do some traveling. This will help give the student some perspective on the world. With this new found knowldege of life, the student will have a better idea of what they wish to do with their life and their college career. With a better understanding of what they want out of college, they will be able to choose a college that will best fit their plan. This may be two years at a community college and then move on to a four year university or maybe they will go straight to a Universtiy. Any way they do it at least they have a better idea of what they want and will most offten do better in school and not wast money by failing classes.

Definitely visit the campus and talk to current students. Colleges have a great way of sugar-coating potentially attractive details while masking anything that can be seen as a flaw. Actual students are more willing to give an unbiased view of their school than the school's recruitment committee, which will certainly attempt to advertise the positive aspects of the school with little or no mention of the negative aspects that go along with it . The only way to really know what a particular college is like is to get a sampling of students' personal opinions, which is why I think this survey will be a great tool for new freshman seeking the perfect college.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Unfriendly, tons of pressure to get good grades, professors that don't seem to care if students do well

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

I would advise students to personally visit the schools they plan to apply to. Many schools offer programs for potential students to get to know the campus, sit in on classes, and talk to currently enrolled students. This is a great chance to determine whether you could see yourself at a particular school, or not. I didn't want to go to OIT at first because I had heard horrible things about Klamath Falls, where it is located. I completely turned up my nose to it based on other peoples' personal opionions. However, I ended up visiting OIT, much to my dismay, because I knew they had a dental hygiene program, my planned major. I attended an event designed specifically for new students. After this, I knew deep down that OIT was the place for me, regardless of what other people had told me. I love my school. At that, my best advice is get to know the schools you are applying to. Make sure your choice is really the right one for YOU.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about OIT is it's location. For people who are used to living in a city, going to school in Klamath Falls can be an adjustment. There are many things people expect to do in college that they'll never do, at least during their college years, if they choose OIT. Quite frankly, students drive out of Klamath Falls for concerts, shopping, etc. The good thing is that there are mountains outside of town for snow sports, in addition to campgrounds and hiking locations for those who like the outdoors.

I would tell them to exhast all options. Make sure the campus is a safe place for the student, and easy enough to get around andthat they don't feel scared. Think about the cost of the school. Going to a community college first can save money, and is also good if the student doesn't know for sure what field of study they would like to go in to. Find a college in an area close to home or to family and friends if you don't like to be too far away. It has helped me only being three hours away rather than 10 or so. I came from a smalll high school, so finding a school that isn't really big was comforting to me.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

someone who wants to go into a medical field, or computer and enineering.
