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

Choose a school that best fits you! If you like a small town atmosphere, then choose a smaller school that has a smaller student to teacher ratio. Campus tours also help narrow down choices, and make sure to ask current students questions about the school and if they like it or not. To make the most out of their college experience, my best suggestion is not to be afraid to meet new people. I chose to attend a college where I didn't know anybody and I've met life long friends. Also, make friends in classes you take. It helps when finals week rolls around and you have people you can study with.

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

One of the things I wished I would have known before attending this school was how to study properly. I wish i would have known how I learned material best. It took me most of this past term to learn how I study. Its definately a key thing in succeeding at any college and it would have been very helpful to have known before taking anatomy and physiology.

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

I would say the weather and location are the worst part about my school. In the winter it can be nearly impossible to commute around town and back to where I live. The town is also at least an hour and a half away from any other town. Many of the students that attend there also live far away, making the trips home limited.

Describe the students at your school.

I am a sophomore in the dental hygiene program and I am surrounded by extremely intelligent students who love to learn and be the most successfull student they can possibly be while making life-long friends in the process.

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

To make the most of a college experience while ensuring the right college specific for each student a person must tour, ask questions, explore different campuses and programs they offer, and find what best fits the students needs. For parents, I suggest that they explore many colleges with their son/ daughter because what is important to the student is always important for the parent as well. The key to making the best of every situation is having a positive outlook on life and what it holds in store ; to make this possible a student and parent needs to be completely satisfied with the college curriculum, professors, living conditions, and campus social life. When as student is positive and is enjoying college life it only brings success for that person. A successfull student has a bright future ahead for their life after graduation.

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

There are many techinal programs that this school offers and graduates are in high demand when they graduate. The school is small enough to get to know all your teachers and students in your class. It really helps in getting the most out of each class and program.

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

You must decide right this second what you want to for the rest of your life. Hurry up! What school will you attend? Don?t you know yet? What program will you apply to? Make a decision! How much will it cost and how will you pay for it? Figure it out! These are the overwhelming feelings and questions that we are bombarded with when trying to choose a college to attend. Take a deep breath and make a list of the top ten qualities and necessities you wish of a college. It is not required that you know what you want your future career to be, but if you do, it can help immensely in narrowing colleges that will be perfect for you. Do not feel bad if you end up changing your mind about what you want to do. It is completely natural to feel out what you like and dislike. In the end it makes you a stronger person who knows more about yourself then when you started and that is something that should not be regretted. Always remember that a college education is a privilege, so take advantage of it!

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

This school is the most progressive school in the nation in regards to Renewable Energy. It offers the only Renewable Energy Engineering degree in the nation, and the campus will be exclusively powered by green energy soon. If you have a desire to free the world dependence on fossil fuels, come to OIT (Portland, OR Campus).

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

Truely think about where you want to live, rather than what school you want to attend. Most internships and job opportunities occur in the same town (close proximity) as the university. Also, most students switch majors two or three times during college, so do not attend a school only for a specific program. The school does not have to be "ranked" high to be a good school. It truely depends on how much effort the student want sto put into the program. And finally, don't be affraid to go back and get a second degree, there is plenty of time in you life to change directions. I prefer it.

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

I wish I had known about more college scholarships before attending school. Get as many as you can!

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

A first impression of a college is one that you should consiter before attending that college. Also, remeber, when you visit, most colleges will try to sell their college, and sometimes will give you skewed information to try and encourage you to join their college. Do not rule out a college just because of its distance from home. The most important thing to remeber is, it is your education, and your future, not your parents or relatives. So with this in mind, chose a college that you want to be at, not where others think you should be at.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The multiple campuses spread across Oregon and Washington that help integrate the school with businesses and offer diverse locations for people who are not able to travel and live at the Klamath Falls campus. The multiple campuses, especially the ones located around Portland, are also designed around providing continued education for people going back to school - offering primarily night classes and distance education (web) classes. OIT also integrates well with other colleges and has strong connections to community colleges as well as Portland State and OHSU.

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

Theres a few things to consider when deciding on which college to attend: First, do you know what degree or field of work you want to go into? If not, you may want to attend cheaper community colleges and and explore different fields of study - this is a great opportunity to complete your basic requirement courses like math and writing while getting a feel for the college environment. Community college are also usually well connected with universities and are a great place to find information on programs and other fields of study. Another question to ask yourself is what kind of social environment do you prefer? Some colleges are more known for their 'college party experience' aspects while others have a more serious environment. Extremes of each are rare and every college has its own variation of educational attitude. Average class size and professor outlook is also key to look at. It's important to consider social environment because it plays a large role in how well you will learn and how best you learn. One last thing to consider is how well can they help you get into a career? Some colleges are more connected to businesses than others.

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

The Portland campuses offer less of the 'college experience' in that they lack the range of clubs and extracurricular activities that the Klamath Falls campus does. Also, the time line for payment and refunds for classes is pretty narrow (must pay within the first week of class and percent refundable drops per day of the second week).

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

To students attempting to find the college that suits them, don't go to a school known for parties. There are two significant groups of people. There are those that waste the money of their parents going to a shcool to drink irresponsibly, and there are those that want to learn more about what they are genuinely interested in by going to college. If you want to waste time and money, you don't have to go to college. And don't go to college because everyone says it's the right thing to do; go because you want to. It's only time well spent if you do it for yourself. There is a college out there that teaches what you are interested in, and there are plenty of ways to find it.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the fact that the teachers know what they are doing, and are very effective in delivering information. I have never learned a subject as well as I learned C++ from OIT.

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

I wish I had known that scholarships like this one are not as effective a way of finding money for college as high school teachers and counselors suggest. You spend time on them that you could be using to earn money on the job, and then hope that you win. It's nearly a form of gambling, what with the time spent on them, and only some people are lucky enough to receive the prize.

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

Most students usually want to get away from home, but what i reccommend is for students to do what they believe will benefit them most. In choosing OIT it was less difficult for me because I have a place to live in and it is way cheaper. Most students should enter college with a great mind set. Each student should be determined and should have a broad idea on what they want to major in. Ask a variety of questions to professors about the material just to get clear on what they expect from students. Students eventually get tired of college and tend to give up, well when that point comes stick it through and finish strong. Thats my advice for a student who is trying to find the right college and making the most of the college experience.

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

It is really competative. Its really hard to get into the programs you want. The classes in general are really hard

What kind of person should attend this school?

Students that are eager to learn and are willing to put forth the effort.

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

Well an advice I would give students and while your still in high school, you should start planning ahead on what you want to do when your in college. Alot of students on college tend to change majors alot and struggle on what they really want. A lot of people want to make the most out of college, but there is a time to play and a time to study. If you do good in college everything else will pay off in the future.

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

I think alot of college students struggle with this, and also myself. I wish I had known what I wanted to be when I grow up.

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

I think the worst thing about OIT would be the location. In the winter it snows TOO much and we would still have school. Klamath Falls is a small town and there isnt much do to here but study or have get -to-gethers.

Talke the time to find out what will help you while persuing your education. Do you prefer large classes or things more hands on? Also look at the surrounding areas, not everyone wants to be in school all the time. :)
