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

Take in to consideration where the college is located and what you may miss out on at home with your families. 30 minutes away can be as far as you make it. Parents, give your child space when they are making their decision, they may start out wanting to go far, but they will end up where they need to be in the end. Do not pressure a decision out of your child, they will make it when they are ready. Students, enjoy where ever you are... You will make friends that will last forever, and the experiences that you have are priceless. Stay at school as much as you can, if you don't, you will miss out on making friends and social opportunities. Happy College Hunting!

My school has nothing unique that stands out in my mind. the campus is growing, and if anything, that was something that caught my attention when applying.

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

The college experience should be anything you want it to be. If your first decision wasn't the right one for you, there is always time to change it. You do not have to be miserable for four to five years because you chose the school that wasn't right for you. After college, it's all about finding a job, making money and working day in and day out, so now is the time to have fun, make friends and memories. Find a good balance between that and maintaining some good grades.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I wouldn't consider this school for freshmen students. The campus life is not very exciting and they are getting very strict with their drinking policies.

RMU concentrates on public speaking and writing. It can give you a head up in the business world if you can write approproately.

Do not settle. Parents should not hold their kids back, even if you don't want your child to go to school away from home you have to let them go. They will only be miserable and hold it against you if they don't go away. And students don't waste your time, it flies by Be as involved as you can be, make as many friends as you can, and go where you will be happy!

What's unique about your campus?

If you are looking to stay in the Pittsburgh area and want to major in Business, Robert Morris Univ. has an excellent reputation. This makes getting an internship and part time employment while in school easier.

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

First I would decide whether you would like a small intimate class setting, or more of an auditorium class setting. Then I would decide on a major and look for schools that are known for that program. I would think about location, do you want to go far? do you want to be close enough to drive home on the weekends for visits? or do you want to be totally away from home? To make the most out of your college experience, I recommend joining a social group, whether it be a sports team or a sorority, or an academic club. This will give you a group of close friends that you can experience college with. It will give you people who have similiar interests to hang out with. Then you can meet all of those people's friends and roomates and really extend your own social abilities. Don't be afraid to be yourself and people will respect you.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about RMU was the people. The professors and administration are amazing. The cafeteria workers, landscapers, resident assistants, ACs, help desk people, everyone wants to help you. Also, the students are all very welcoming and there are a lot of diverse people. It is an excellent place to meet new people and you will feel very at home at this school. Everyone is welcoming.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I wouldn't attend this school if you are unsure of what you want to do. It is important that you know what career you want to end up in, because to graduate in 4 years you need to be focused on one major, not switching.

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

The most important thing that is unique about Robert Morris to me is their actuarial science program. Bobby Mo's program is the strongest I had seen out of the Pennsylvania schools that offer actuarial science. Their program is focused on guiding students to pass exams. Most students have two exams passed when they graduate (you have to have at least 1 to even get the degree). The professsors are very knowledgeable and helpful. RMU hosts a career fair just for prospective actuaries that brings in insurance companies from all over the US for summer inernships and full time jobs.

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

Yes, you go to college to get an education, but I hope you do not go to college just to get an education. College is about experiencing new things while transforming from a child into a productive member of society. It only happens once and you need to make it as enjoyable as you can. Your friends in college have the biggest influence on the type of person you will become in the real world, so make sure you choose a school where you feel you fit in. Don't try to force yourself into a college that doesn't feel right for you just because your parents want you to go there or because it is cheaper. And once you are in your college of choice, get out there and participate in everything you can. You will make a lot of friends and make your college experience a lot more meaningful. If you make a good group of friends while in college, your time there will be so much more enjoyable and those friends will stay in touch with you after you graduate. Go to learn, but also go to experience. Have a blast.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

This college is for someone who wants to enjoy the college experience. If you want to drive hard to learn as much as you can are interested in only academics and how well you can do academically, go to another school. Robert Morris has the teachers and means to provie a quality education, but the attitude here is more laid back when it comes to academics. Sporting events are big here and you have to love sports if you want to come here.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I would have to say that it is known to be a suitcase school, only because the majority of the students that go there are from the surrounding area and they tend to go home on the weekends. Yet there is still lots to do on campus for the people that stick around.

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

First thing i would say is you have to vistit the colleges that interst you. Because If you pick a college without going and seeing what it is like, you are sure to be dissapointed. Picking a college means pick your home for the next four years, you have to make sure that it is right for you.

What's unique about your campus?

The campus is really beatuiful. There are plenty of trees an mountains that surround the campus, along with very beautifully built buildings.

Robert Morris as a school is great, but the campus life outside of class is terrible.

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

When deciding where you would like to go to school think about what your extracurricular interests are. Look for the school that best combines what you look to do outside of class with your major and learning needs.

Leah
Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is small, friendly, expensive, and so business-oriented that I have barely learned anything about my actual major.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

RMU is a small, local college with a strong education in business.

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

Find a college that is affordable and worth the money you will spend on it. Make sure you check out the programs for the major you are enrolling in to see if it is right for what you need. My biggest regret is enrolling in a college whose program focuses on the business aspect and not enough on your individual major. Look into several colleges and compare them. Which has both academic and social activies that you would be interested in? The college education you choose may affect the rest of your life, so don't rush into it. Take your time and choose wisely.

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

College is great- make the most of it while you're there and be sure to get involved from the start. Try to pick a school that has plenty of activities for the students and isn't just focused on grades.

What's unique about your campus?

The way the people (teachers and students) work hard to make everyone welcome and fit in. There are always activities sponsered by the campus that you can go to. Also, it's close enough to Pittsburgh that you can go into the city with the school's shuttles and be a part of all that, but it's location on Moon is nice and can be quieter so it's a great place to live.

What kind of person should attend this school?

There's not one type of person that should attend RMU, there are hundreds. I think everyone would like it here.
