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

My college experience has been excellent. If I were in the high with the knowledge I gained in college my advice would be to take advantage each class, were more organized with homework. My university experience has helped me in part to be the professional person that I am today, I think the high would have that in mind too.

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

Everyone lives their own experience in college. Dont be scared for what other people tell you. When you go to college you make your own experience you just have to make it a good one. Meet new people that add a little every day to your views and values. Everyone is different so dont expect to meet people who agree in everything with you, but open your mind to what others have to say or think. There is time for everything you just have to distribute it properly and never loose your focus. You have to study and study hard, its not like back in high school that you could study for a test the night before and get a good grade, in college you will have to work for it. There will be ups and down but when you graduate and look back you will see that the road you walked was a great one and very much worth it for your future.

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

The worst thing about my school is that there is not much to do in it. Some classmates just like me have long free periods of time in which we cant find an activity to do. There are 2 pool tables in the whole school but they're always full and theres almost no equipement to play in them. Though it is true that we can use the free time to study and do homework i find it very difficult to study for 5 consecutive hours which im practically forced to because of the lack of activity.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school would be the lack of knowledge shown by some administrative employees. In the financial aids office the employees are very poor orientating students on other scholarships aside from FAFSA i believe its because they dont have the knowledge. In the accounting office the employees dont have the right attitude towards most students in campus, they can be very arrogant and unprofessional.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My college is best known for the great preparation and enthusiasm of the faculty to teach the students and prepare them for the future, also it's known in how they involve the students in the catholic faith and the different values.

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

I would tell myself to focus on my studies and not to lose time because I am working on my future and creating a better society not only for me but also to our future generations and I would tell this advice to all my friends because the future depends on us and on what we are willing to give to make it better.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I don't really think there's nothing frustrating about the college, but if I have to tell something that for me is not great about it is that there is not a girls basketball team. But I can ensure that if we have the initiative we can change want we don't like about our respective colleges and help them get better.

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

First of all, that community college education you’re getting ready to undertake is a great idea. You’ll graduate in May, then transfer to Virginia Tech, where you’ll receive your Bachelor’s degree in two years. However, take another foreign language while you’re at the community college. It will broaden your horizons. When you get to Virginia Tech, don’t worry about a double major. You need to graduate with your BA, then you can obtain your MAED, but don’t leave the college yet! Go ahead and get a second Master’s degree, this one in English. It will help make the road of your future a little less bumpy. Move out of your parents house quickly upon graduation, or else you’ll be stuck there forever. Don’t quit Galileo when you’re offered the job at the Governor’s School. That’s where everything went downhill for you. Keep your chin up. You can make it through the tough times.

What's unique about your campus?

It's a small campus that allows students to know their professors better.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I don't find anything about my school frustrating. I don't live on campus and commute, and the teachers in my program are amazing. I'm very lucky.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My university is best known for its excelent and compatble education offers. It is recognized for being one of the best universities in puerto Rico. Besides offering an excelent education as in becoming a professional, it also offers spiritual education just so we can have a sense and learn more about who created us and the reason why we exist.

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

I would recomend to learn and get used to being independent. Also paying more attention in class and not to be shy to ask questions. I'd also recommend to always do assignments on time and no matter what don't ever give up. To help others so you can be helped to and just remember everyone is there to learn!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person with qualities such as responsibility and determination to complete a career should definitly enter this university. Simply anyone with ambition to succeed and complete their goals must be there.
