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

The most important advice that I would give a parent or student to making the most of college would not fully be to look for the perfect academic school, but a school where the student can grow into a good person, while achieving there career goals. College is not completely for what you want to be when you are older, it is something so much more. You create who you are and make friends that you will always have with you. College molds you into who you will be along with what you will be doing. I am not saying just choose a school because it has a great program of study, but to be happy there needs to be a range of things that includes diversity of culture, social life, religion, if the professors actually care and know their field, and pretty much anything that will make you feel comfortable so that you can learn your program of choice, while still figuring out who you are and will be as a person. College should not be limited to just the academic life, but the life of how you will live. This will truly define what college should be.

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

Before attending this school, I wish I was more prepared to know how life on campus really is. I expected college to feel more like college and less like highschool. I also wish I would have known how this school actually was academically. It has such high reviews, but I do not completely understand why it is praised for being such a great school.

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

The worst thing about this school is that it is so small, so there is not really a lot of groups to become friends with. it seems like there are two groups, one that all they do is drink because they dont know what else is fun to do and then there is the group that doesnt, and that is about it.

Students :Whatever college you choose to attend, have a positive attutide and appreciation for the process of becoming a college student. Be constantly looking for ways to get involved and meet new people. Parents should be responsive to the needs of their children, and understand that college is a full time commitment.

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

Make sure to visit the colleges you are considering, sit in on classes and stay on campus if you can. Talk with the students, not just the guides getting paid to try to convince you to go to the school. Once attending your school, go to all your classes, getting the most out of your money. Attend concerts and plays, and take part in other school programs, join clubs, socialize. Take advantage of school services like tutoring and a student activities group. Participating is the best way to learn things and to meet people, don?t be a hermit!

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

Rocky has small classes and the professors are willing to work with you about any problem you may have.

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

Find a school that will help you throughout your college career. Also, make sure you find a school that wants to make sure you graduate in four years. A school that helps you find a job after college is also helpful.

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

If I were to give a high school senior advice about choosing a college I would have to tell them to go with their heart. If you want to visit ten colleges, vistit ten colleges, but go with the one that makes you feel. Don't base your decision on what your friends are doing or want you to do. Going away to college and having the new found freedom is one of the best feelings. Being on your own and away from your comfort zone is what it is all about. Embrace every new experience offered to you. When you start to feel home sick or times get hard, don't succumb to the pain, push through it. You will never regret going away to college, it is truly one of the best experiecnces of your lifetime and there is no wrong way to go about it. Choose a place that makes you comfortable and happy and the rest will fall into place. As far as the parents go, let your child make the decision, no matter how much you want them to stay close. Just support them in every way possible.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It has an excellent pre-professional program in the health sciences, and has an 88% overall job/graduate school placement rate. It also has excellent professors who know their subjects extremely well.

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

Find a college that suits your needs and also fulfills your extracurricular and social interests. You do not want to spend the next four years of your life in a place where you don't fit in or don't feel confident at. Find a school whose programs are reliable and professors who have a thorough knowledge of their subjects. Decide how large you want class sizes to be; I've heard of class sizes ranging anywhere from 4 students to 300 students just within the state of Montana. Basically, find a college that suits your personality and your goals. When you get to college, take part in whatever sort of orientation your school offers. You make great friends and meet new people, which will make your transition from high school to college a lot easier. Keep in touch with old friends, but remember to spend time with your new classmates. You never know when those new connections will come in handy down the road--whether it is for notes or study groups. Put your best effort into your studies, but remember to have fun and enjoy yourself--you're only going to be in college once!

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

The drama level at the school tends to run high sometimes. There are also few activities that coincide with a science-based class schedule, so I would recommend attending a larger college if you wish to pursue things like sororities.

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

Make sure that you visit the campus! Try different events on campus and make sure you actually can picture yourself at that college or university. Otherwise, you will be in for a rude awakening when classes start up. Apply to various schools, don't limit yourself to just one or two: "The more the merrier"! Talk to your admissions representatives and tell them what you feel and think, they can try to see if they can help you so make sure to be nice to them they have MANY connections! Good Luck!!!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is dedicated and wants a small school that can help your future!

When looking at colleges remember to be yourself and think about what makes you you. The next four years are very important and you want to be in a place where you can have fun and learn as much as possible. Look at schools that you wouldn't normally consider, step outside you box a little and really look at all the possibilities around you. Listen to your parents advice but remember that it is your life and you must make the decisions for yourself. Don't be afraid to try out for a college sports team, a lot of people don't think they are good enough to play on a college team but you just might be. Also being on a team is a great way to make new friends and ease your way into a new school and possibly city, state or even country. When it comes time to move into a new school dont be shy, try your best to be outgoing, and last but not least if someone asks if you need help take it, cause you never know that person that helps you carry a box could turn out to be your new bestfriend.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Rocky is probably best known for its great ski team, mens and womens. They've taken national titles a few years in a row now. Either that or their not-so-great-but-getting-better football team.

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

School size is very important when looking into colleges. If you went to a large high school, then a smaller campus, such as Rocky, would probably be too small and you would be better off in a larger school. However, if you went to a small high school, then a large college would probably be too intimidating and you would have a better time at a smaller school. Campus size is related to class size also; It's easier to learn in smaller classes, so if you have a tough time paying attention in class then I would suggest a smaller school. No matter what, make sure that you feel comfortable on campus and that you can fit in. If you're uncomfortable and feel out of place, then college could be a potential nightmare for you.

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

I would honestly have to say that the price of tuition is ridiculous. Yeah, Rocky's a private school and the education is great, but I don't think it's worth what I pay. If it weren't for scholarships, I wouldn't be able to afford to go here. There are a ton of great people who would be great at Rocky but just can't afford it.
