What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience with rust went well. Its like this college has so many opportunities and the people are very nice. From my first look at the school before i walked in i thought this school was stupid, but once i got to meet and interact with people i felt right at home. i felt bad for making accusations about the school before i actually went inside.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rust College is a small private Methodist historically black college. The professors show a genuine interest in your success and are usually pretty accessible. The college is in a small town in MS, so it is not a TON of stuff to do. However they do have a recreation center with pool tables, a small theater, ping pong, and usually have activities on campus for students to engage in. Greek life is prevalent. There is no football team but the basketball, baseball, and volleyball teams keep you in school spirit. There was an obnoxious amount of locals on campus though.Rust College is a very good college. It is so diverse. Some of the professors are kind and respectful. If you are having trouble in a class, they are sure to find you a tutor. I would change the lunch menu.My experience at Rust was wonderful. My first year was full of surprise . However the staff is great so is the school and students. Everyone is so kindhearted coming from a big town city to a small town will teach you so much about life. Although one thing I would like to see change at Rust college is a better view and fun campus for the students.I enjoy attending Rust College. I make new friends every year and further my learning experience to get my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. I enjoy meeting new people, trying new things with friends and even some of the teachers. I do wish some things about the school would be fixed or upgraded some.I love the learning environment and the school spirit. The professor try their best for us to learn and the student body itself is a support system. I would like to see a change in the living conditions, however.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The academic department of Rust College is outstanding. The professors are very hands on and the student body helps each other. However, the cafeteria could use better food choices. Also, the living conditions need to be improved immediately. The school spirit is very overwhelming. We take great pride in our school and loves those who comes in and out.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Rust is an outdated extremely easy school. The dorms are moldy and old. The classes are too easy I rarely feel like learn anything. The food is okay but were served basically the same thing everyday and the same thing every week. The only good thing about it is that its very affordable.

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

Well I would mainly tell myself to enteract with more people. I say that because I get very nervous with public speaking. I would ask could I talk in front of the lower classmates just to practice speaking in front of crowds. At my graduations it seemed like I only needed to practice because I practiced my speech a lot of times and I had to speak in front of a lot of people. That's about the only thing I would tell myself because in high school everything was nice. I ranked number one of my class out of 109 students. I had a 4.2 grade point averge(GPA), I was on the honor roll all four years of high school, I was in the national honor society, and I am was in a intership.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the best thing about my school would be it's a chruch school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The only frustrating thing is that it's very far away from home.

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

After my first year in college, i have realized a few things that I would tell my previous high school senior self. I would start by saying "DO NOT! I repeat DO NOT bring all of your clothes with you because you tend to shop when you get bored; so there is no reason to bring old things when you get new things every weekend." I would also tell myself "Don't stress out when you do not get what grade you want in a classroom. It's a lesson you have to learn to know what you have to do to be better in the next class you take." The last thing I would tell myself is "Be open to new things and people. You've been so afraid of new people coming into your life because of past problems and situations, but it's not worth missing out on people you will never forget at college; all you have to do is let them in."

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The lack of communication between the students is the most frustrating thing about my school. If we could al come together as one big voice, we could get a lot of things down around the campus; and become more as one big college family.

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

When being asked the question if I could go back in time and give myself advice about college, I would tell myself you have to be alert at all times. Though you are away from home and you dont have family around you to tell you what to do you have to be familiar with your surroundings because anyone can come on the campus. Also I would tell myself that partying is not everything, it is ok to go out and have a good time but if you do decide to go out, come back to your dorm at a decent time so you can get hours of a good sleep and time to get ready for class the next day. Futhermore I would tell myself to build a relationship with the professor's that you have, the professors are willing to help you with any questions that you many have and even activities that you would like to be apart of. In addition, I would also say is stay tuned in with God because he will never leave your side, also I would say is stay in touch with you family because they are here to help us.

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

When I was applying to this school it was very little that I knew about it, the only thing I knew was both of my parents and their friends went to this school. The things I wish I wish I knew about this school before I came here is that its a very small campus, books are free, and also that its a Methodist school. Overall its not alot but I wish I had known those things about the school I attend.

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

Attending Rust College the worst thing I would say about the school is the dorms. I say this because as a student the dorms that we have to live in are not comfortable at all. Being a student and having to live with many different females with very different personalities, they can be very nasty. If the dorms are put together very sloppy then they female students who live there are going to treat the dorms as if it's not there home where they have to stay. Thats the worst thing about Rust College.

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

If I had the opportunity to talk to myself as a high school senior, I would encourage (almost force) myself to start college immediately after graduating high school. During my senior year of high school in 1998, I was accepted into the Milwaukee School of Engineering with a partial scholarship. However, I chose to move four states away and live with my boyfriend instead. I struggled to earn and keep employment over the past ten years because I did not have a college education. It took me over a decade to realize that a college education really makes a difference. Today, I am happy to say that I have an associate's degree in business management (graduated in 2010), and I am currently pursuing my associate's degree in accounting and administration. I still have the same boyfriend and we have a wonderful 9-year-old son. A college education makes all the difference in the world! I am extremely grateful for my current college opportunity. What an experience!

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

The advice i would give myself about college life and making the transition within myself is always remind myself that you are the master of your own environment. I will continue to remind myself that i have the power to choose and act accordingly.

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

Rust College has moded the students into future leaders in this society with excellent administrators and professors that care and are willing to walk alone our academic journey with the students.
