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

Make sure that you keep your work ethic high. Your parents aren't going to be there to shove you out the door to be on time or pester you about homework. Just believe in yourself.

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

Quincy University is very friendly! Since it is a smaller school ther is a sense of community. It makes you feel like you are at home.

QU is small, laid-back, not very academically challenging, and Catholic only in name but not in practice.

Visit a variety of schools and visit more than once. Stay overnight if possible. Ask current students who aren't paid to give tours what they think, because they will give you the most honest answers. If you don't like the school at first, wait it out for the first year before transferring; it will probably get better. Be involved on campus and have a voice about what goes on at the school. If you want to change something, don't complain about it- do it. Get involved with a lot of extracurriculars, whether academic, social, service, athletic, ect. because both schools and employers like students who are involved, and you will meet friends there who share your interests. College is fun no matter what, so work as hard as you can and you will be rewarded with a satisfying career. Always try to be the best, and even if you're not, somebody will notice that you are trying. Accept help when offered. Take advantage of resources- library, study sessions, etc. They are a waste if you don't use them! Don't stress about finding your best friends right away- you will find them!

What kind of person should attend this school?

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

One of the most important things to do in finding the right college, is to do research. Doing research on a specific college or university will allow the student and the parent to choose wisely. Sometimes it is not about what the campus looks like or where it is located. I believe that it is important to know what the college has to offer: degrees, majors, activities, and tuition costs. It is also good to know if the college or university will be beneifical and will meet the needs for the career that the student wishes to pursue. As far as getting the most out of the college experience, there are plenty of nice people on campus to make friends with. Getting involved in sports, campus clubs, and campus clubs will help with social life. In my opinion, I think that living in a dorm during freshmen year will help a student connect more to the campus and build a friendship with many people living in the dorm. However it is really up to the student to make a college experience worth their while.

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

I wish that I would have known how many flight hours they provide each year. I am majoring in Aeronautical Science (Professional Pilot), and my goal is to have as many flight hours logged in before I graduate. Apparently Quincy University does not meet my needs

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

You need to know your own personality, educational goals, and an idea of what field you want to have a career in. Answer these questions and find a school that best serves your interests. Do you want a small, medium, or large school? Does the school have a good program for your area of study? And the most important question is, what type of opportunities are provided outside the classroom? About 1/4 of what you learn in college will be in class. The other 3/4 is from all your other experiences. Look for a school that provides lots of opportunities. Do they have clubs and organizations that interest you? Look for sports teams you would play in, theatre departments you would get involved with, internship possibilities you could benefit from, and all the clubs and organizations that you could participate in. These extra opportunities can help cover for some of your classes that will inevitably lack value, and they always look great on resumes. Not only that, but they could be the most fun and rewarding experiences in your college career. Good luck college hunting!

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

Parents and students should know and understand that they should take their time to find the right college or universty, because rushing to find the right one may cause the student to not only suffer academically but socially.

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

The worst thing would be the unwillingness to get become a more socially diverse campus. The campus only one fraternity and two sororities. Last year a group of my friends pledged to bring another fraternity on campus and were not allowed to and were not given any reasons as to why.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that like a small campus environment, but does not necessarily like to be social.
