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

Research and visit all the colleges you can. It helps to visit as many schools as you can in order to help you eliminate the schools that are not a good fit for you. It also helps to research and visit schools so you can see what aspects you do like in schools. If you can try to, talk to alumni of schools you might be interested in. See what the alumni have to say about their experiences at that school. Make sure you know how much growth potential a school has; see where it was 10 years ago, and what it hopes to achieve in the future.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wants a school where you know your professors by name and recognize majority of the people in your classes.

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

My advice to give would to let your child decide for themselves what kind of school they would like to go to. Also to allow them to take time to think about what it is they would want to major in. It seems that a lot of students are pressured to pick a major from the start of college. It can be difficult to know what it is you want to do with your life. Also take advantage of school activities and don't be afraid to meet new people even if they are different then what you are used to, you never know who could turn out to be a great friend.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It's very expensive and a class in comparative religions gave false information about Muslim's.

It's small and friendly so it is easy to meet people and see them around campus or in class.

Don't be afraid to take chances and really decide on what exactly it is that you want in a college so that you will be completely happy with your choice in schools

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

I wish I had known how small it would be and how challenging the classes would be.

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

For students keep your options open. Look at different schools, private and state universities, big ones, and small ones. Maybe spend the night in one of the dorms. If you get a tour and you feel comfortable and safe; you just feel like this is like a second home then go with that choice. If it turns out that it just wasn't right for you then you can transfer. Get involved in things, go to activities and games, but also take nights off. Do go out drinking all the time. I think the most important thing is to just relax. Don't go home the first month (unless there is something very important) it will help you get over the homesickness. You can call your parents, its okay. As for parents the first few days may be rough but just relax and let your kids learn on their own. You don't have to come to every rescue.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is open to new things because this school supports whoever you want to be as long as it doesn't got to the extremes of harming others.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There tend to be a lot of parties on the weekends and sometimes they get loud (drunk students out walking around, you can't actually here the party). However, the security and RAs do a good job. Sometimes the hired Per Mar security people are annoying because they do unnecessary things and don't trust the RAs or Hall Directors.

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

Choose the college that feels right to you. Just because something looks good on the outside doesn't mean it's the right fit for you. Visit the campus, talk to the people. And follow your heart. If that means going a thousand miles away from home, so be it. You're the one in college, not your family. To the parents I would say just to support your children in whatever they decide to do. And don't think that you have to fix everything for them.

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

I wish I had the chance to meet my roommate and get to know her before school. It was not a good situation and she moved.

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

My school is fun and lively, it feels like it is its own community in the surrounding one! My school has small more personable class sizes, great faculty and staff, great access to resources, a student success center for tutoring and other needs, and a large job placement program. There is a great art scene here with amazing plays and exhibits and guest artists. There is a large athletic part to my school and the football and basketball games are really fun. It is just a great school with a great feel and great people.

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

Make sure the college/university fits you. Don't just go there because your friends are, there is a lot to be said for a smaller college/university that fits you and recognizes you as a person compared to a college/university that is so large that your just a number in an oversized lecture hall. You want to be somewhere where you will succeed and at a place where the faculty and staff will try their hardest to get you there. You want a place that kind of feels like home but is different enough that it still feels like school. There has to be a great deal of activities and extracurricular things to get involved with no matter where you go, the key to a successful and happy college/universty career is feeling like you fit in and belong, without that your studies will be difficult. My bigest thing to look for is a great school with a lot of resources for success and a great campus life, somewhere that fits you perfectly.

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

I would have to say that there isn't a whole lot of things that I think are bad at my school but I think that there is a little less focus on commuter students than on residents. This isn't a big dillema because there is still plenty of things that are offered to get transfer students involved, I just think that there is room for improvement in this area. But, I'm a commuter and a transfer student and I love it here!

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

Pick a college you feel comfortable at. Don't just choose a school because they have the best reputation, or because people know that school, or because your relatives went there. You ahve 4 years there, make sure you want to be there.

The great opportunity people get from attending this school.
