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

That I would feel that way. I felt down about myself for awhile, because I thought I was not good enough.

Hayley

I wish I had known that we wouldn't know who our voice teacher is before we arrived. I was lucky because I love my voice teacher (I am a voice performance major) but some people may not get so lucky.

Kelly

I wish that I had known all of the extra curricular activities offered for free such as rock climbing, ski trips, hiking trips, plays etc. I did not know these existed until my senior year.

Financial aid, scholarship information; how to manage or get more money. Financial Issues--the paperwork is overwhelming and the feedback from a lot of people -confusing; the steps that have to be taken and you never know if you are making the right decisions; you could have done more for yourself, etc.

I wish I knew the conditions of the dorms. Most of them are really poor condition. Also i wish I knew how the food was because the food is very low quality and charge too much for meal plan.

Desirae

I wish that I would have known that most students go home on the weekends. However, Rider has started doing a lot more events on the weekends to try and get students to stay instead of going home and it has worked.
