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

I would advise that finding out as much as you can about the school that you are considering will only help you with your decision. Knowing yourself and what you expect from the college experience will help you narrow your choices down. I grew up in a very small academic community, so I knew that I wanted that for my college experience.

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

How small it was and the campus life that it provided.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The size is both a good thing and a bad thing; it does not have some of the opportunities that other large schools have to offer thier students.

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

The most important thing to consider when searching for the college that's right for you is how you feel when you visit their campus. I know this may sound corny, but they say you "just know" when a college is where you want to be. I would definitely recommend visiting each college you apply to because it's a big help to see what it's like to live there and be a part of the campus and its activities. If you don't like what you see and feel when you visit a college then it may be time to reconsider. I know academics and other activities are important , but you won't feel like participating in anything if you hate being at school. I think in order to really do well at college you have to love being a part of the school you choose.

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

I think the neighborhood around the school is the worst because it is somewhat unsafe. You have to be very careful about what time you go out and if you're going out alone. I personally would never go anywhere off campus alone at night. The school security does do a great job keeping students safe though.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I would say someone whose major revolves around art. We have a pretty good art program but I know there are other schools that would have more resources for an art major.

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

I think its important to visit all types of colleges but they should narrow down based on size, how academically challeneged they want to be, and the area surrounding the school. These are the most important factors because they will affect your happiness at your school. I decided that fact that my school was in an urban aread didn't matter. Even though I love the school, I don't like that I sometimes don't feel safe in the area. This is important to consider.

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

I had friends who attended the school so I feel like I knew a lot about the school when I came.

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

There are many things to consider when choosing a college or university. After all, your decision in this area dictates a significant portion of your future. There are so many schools in so many places that its understandably easy to become overwhelmed, but the thing to do is stick to the issues that are important to you. Before you start looking, make a list of specific things that are important to you: school/ class size, majors and minors, tuition cost range, housing, city attractions, diversity. That way when you do your research or begin actually looking into different universities you know which ones will be a fit for you.....and which ones won't. This simple step will save you a great deal of time, and it will help you narrow down your focus more quickly to the school that is the perfect fit for you.

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

I wish that I had known how to study. Sometimes at this school studying is vital for encoding information. Many of the classes are difficult and demanding, and having a good study base from the get-go would have helped me tremendously.

Make sure to pick a college that fits you personally. Don't just pick a local University because most of your friends are going there, don't pick a big school just because you want to party, and don't settle. Your high school friends will always be apart of your life but don't be afraid to go away and meet new people. You will be surprised how quickly you will adapt. College is a once in a lifetime experience so it is important to make sure you are content with the surroundings of the University. I know too many people that complain constantly about school but if you choose a school that fits your personality then I believe you will be happy. We have the rest of our lives to work but only 4 years in college so live it up and find the one that FITS you!

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

I think that a student should go with their gut feeling about a school. This is a big decision, and there are so many options and ways to afford a college education. A student should really make time to meet people, and find surrounding areas to get involved on and off campus. Most importantly, live your life! College is a time of change and experience, and it's so important to be open minded because you can learn so many things about yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Rockhurst are the teachers, they are very willing to help and always flexible.

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

Choosing the right college or university is like a marriage. Make sure that when you make your decision that you are elated but understand that like all great marriages, there will be ups and downs. I would highly encourage prospective students to understand the philosophies of the institution they are planning on attending and make sure that it is in line with personal philosophies. It is important to take at least one if not a few over night visits to understand the dynamics of campus. In the end, do not settle with less than the perfect match.

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

They definately need to visit they campus, tour it with and without a guide. They also need to sit in some classes, see if they like the feel of the atmosphere. They need to tour around the campus, because the student will be living there, they need to see how safe the neighborhood is and how convient everything is to campus. If they know what their major is they need to make that school offers it and if they do sit down with the advisor for that major and have a talk with them about how long it will take to graduate. They also need to see if they are for example, trying to get into nursing school, what the prereqs are and see if they have to have a certain grade in those classes to get accepted into the program. But the big thing is it should be about how the student feels about the school and if they like it, they are going to be spending aronnd 10 months out of the year for 4 years their; they need to be comfortable with that school of their choice.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is trying to be academically challenged and willing to put in a lot of time and effort; they should also come here if they are looking for a career.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

They should not attend this school if they do not like small campus' or classes, they should not attend if they are people who blow off class and only want to take tests for a grade, participation is key to this university. Also they should not attend if they are not willing to put in the time and effort to study, if they dont they will flunk out.
