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

Make sure you know what you want out of a college. I never visited my college campus and ended up hating the small classes, and small community. Remember that you are not stuck with the choice you make, so try new things out. Anything is possible.

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

Go to a university that fits you as a person. do extensive research before applying and finally choosing the school you desire. because if you dont , you may end up in an overpriced institution with a really bad social atmosphere such as rockhurst university.

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

I found it the easiest to say go where you are comfortable and at home because it will be your home for the next 4 or 5 years. At the same time go to a place that will challenge you to expand your mind and you thoughts,wiht room to grow in a safe enviornment.

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

The location can be kind scarry especially if you grow up in the KC area but the campus overall is pretty safe

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

Rockhurst is incredibly accelerated. If you put a lot of work into it, you will find that it will reward you greatly. If you slack off however, you will not achieve anything here.

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

When taking tours of schools, don't listen to what the ambassadors tell you. Watch the students and people on campus interact. When they give you breaks, definitely try to talk to people there. It will give you a great idea of how the school really is. The right college isn't about what will get you the best job, it is about a place where you feel safe and secure. It is only in a place like this that you can find yourself and the path you want to walk through in life.

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

The worst thing about Rockhurst is the inability of the Financial Aid Assistants to help in any way. They feel it is more appropriate to try to give more aid to the students coming in than to giving it to the ones graduating soon.

Describe the students at your school.

Do-gooders with big hearts, goal-oriented behaviors, and well defined ambitions to pursue a life of self-understanding, goal seeking, advancement of education, and speaking up as leaders within their own communities.

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

The perfect school probably will not be your first-choice school; young adults will make life out of what they're given - so find a place that is student-centric in attitude, with a diverse and comfortable number of students. Don't let distance matter; the perfect school for you is the one that you attend. Live on campus, meet as many people as possible, and don't be afraid to chase your dreams. The only regret you should have in college is having not met enough people, tried too many organizations, or laughed too hard. Enjoy it - it is the best time of your life, and will create for you a life in your future.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who care little for the human condition, for others, and for the pursuit of a life of success, happiness, and aid to others.

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

Making the most of your college experience. Try to experience as much as possible. Go outside of your comfort zone. Take a random class. As a High School senior I chose to attend college out of state so that I wouldn't know anyone around me. I would not trade that experience for the world. Everyone that I met was new. Everyone had a story to share. As a College Freshmen I had already chosen my major, nursing, however, through taking required classes outside my major I found that I was passionate about serving the community. My new majors became Nonprofit Leadership and Theology. I have thourghly enjoyed participating in both majors as well as getting my feet wet with multiple internships. Looking back after graduation I know that the hardest semester that I had emotionally was my first semester, not knowing anyone, being in a new city. My hardest semester accademically was my last semester, I was taking 23 credits so that I could finish a semester early. My last semester was also my favorite semester. The friends that I made and have kept are the best friends anyone could ask for. Take classes that are right for you.

Describe the students at your school.

A lot of fun to hang out with but close minded when it comes to race, sexual orientation, they tend to be judgemental.

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

I would definitely encourage students to get involved with on-campus activities to meet new people, and service opportuinities. It is so imporant to manage your time by not taking on too much. I believe an emense amount of schoolwork is the number one cause for depression and a general sense of unhappiness among the student body.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing would have to be the on-campus housing and the ridculous rules enforced and the way they carry out the punishment.

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

I would suggest focusing on what finding a school that is most geared around what you are looking to study, and also fits your personality the most. College is about getting an education, but the extra-curricular activities are also key to enjoying your college experience. I would recommend a parent or student looking for the right college find out what ammenities the school offers to get you ahead in life. It comes down to finding that happy medium of what you are looking for with school size, learning environment, city/town atmosphere, and ability to have an enjoyable experience.

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

that it can feel really small at times, the school spirit is less than what you would expect at a big school, greek life seems to dominate the social life on campus with those students being most involved on campus, the facilities are not the best for research

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

small classes, professors know you by name, in the heart of Kansas City with small school atmosphere, friendly students mostly from the midwest
