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

The advice I would give to parents and/or students is that finding the right college is not trying to make the most out of college experience but, is what they can get out of college. The knowlegde to help better their life for the future. This doesn't mean they can't make freinds and be social. You can find and make friends any where in the world. They can just find any college to go to but to get the most out of college experience is to learn while making friends. For example, my brother and I go to 2 diffrent colleges I attend a high cost college while he attends a community college back home. Often we become somewhat jealous of each other he gets to save money and make intelligent friends to help him with school work but, I very social friends. But if i went to the same college as him I wouldnt have been able to have a 3.5 gpa for the NJStar program to later transfer to my college. Beside those point any college would be good it just how well the students apply them self to succeed.

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

I would tell parents and students to definatley do their research on what college they really want to attend. Every college offers different things. Some colleges have better Business, Engineering, or Nursing programs than others. Students should go to their orientation dates so they can actually get a feel of the campus and what it has to offer. Also, actually meeting with a counselor to talk about their goals and aspirations can help them choose where they actially want to go. Students should make the most of their college experience by actually getting involved with on campus activities. Colleges have many clubs and organizations to join. By joinging these organizations they have the ability to meet new people and make new friends as well as give back to the community by participating in community services. I would also recommend to dorm at least one year of their college years, especially freshman year because I enjoyed it so much. You get to meet new people and actually have new responsiblities, which help you grow as a person. You would not get these opportunities in any other places other than college.

Visit all the colleges you plan on attending and talk to the students their to have their input and ideas as to how campus life is.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who wants to surround themselves with ethnic diversity and be able to be around people who offer thoughts and ideas from different parts of the world. It is a commuter school, so there is not much socializing that occurs on this campus.

Not someone looking for a active social life, because majority of the students go home after a certain time.

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

Make sure you start looking for the right college early in high school. there are so many different atmospheres and college settings, that it is never too early to look for what is right for yourself. College offers you an opportunity to build on everything you learned from kindergarten through your senior year of high school, make sure you choose a college that allows you to push yourself to your limits and learn new and interesting things that will allow you to be successful in the "real world." You need to find the right balance both in your college life and in the atmosphere at your college. Sure college is supposed to be about expanding your knowledge and building a foundation for a secure and successful future, but at the same time you need to make friends and build relationships that will allow you to feel complete after you have finished college. Lastly, be yourself and learn from others, college is where you meet new people and are exposed to new things, don't let these aspects of college change you, but allow yourself to become more exposed to such differnces to better yourself as a whole.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who knows what they want to do with their life and is highly independent. This campus does not offer a lot of guidence for students and you have to figure a lot of things out for yourself.

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

When it comes to picking the best college for you, it is important to be sure of what type of person you are. I knew coming out of high school i wasn't ready to, just move away from home and go to a large school. I took the community college route, which is probably the first very good move I made. by doing this this allowed me to be sure the major i chose was the one for me as well as focus on the location of the school or university i would be eventually attending. Two years later i decided to go to Rutgers-Newark. i think this was a good choice. the school is honored one of the most diverse campuses, plus my dream of attending a law school is even close when i can see it out my window every morning. at the end of the day it is where you feel the most comfortable. choose a school where you wont mind living. not being stressed out because of your enviornment will help you adapt to a campus as well as your academics a lot faster.

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

Rutgers is a very diverse well known and well respected. There is good school sprite, with lots of school activities and school clubs. The only problem I would say is that there is the Rutgers New-Brunswick campus and people tend to think the Newark campus is a much lower level.

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

take it very serious, should have fun but make sure to get your work done and get good grades.

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

If a student is not strongly pulled by a degree, they should go liberal and make sure all the core classes are done. I made a mistake by 'thinking' I was computer intelligent based on the fact that I use a computer everyday. So I took Computer Science, and long story told short, it was a bad experience and ended up recieving close to no credits for that semester. So take the core classes that will transfer to any degree.

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

The worst thing about my school is the parking situation, there is no where to park. They have 2 parking decks and 1 parking lot that I still dont know where it is. If one doesn't get to school more than 1 hour earlier than their class, they will be driving around for an hour until the parking deck opens up.
