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

Students should take part in an overnight stay at the colleges that they are considering attending. This helps them get an idea about what campus life is like. Then pick the school that has the most for you. Parents you have some say in what your child does but let them pick where thwy want to go to school they are the ones who will have to attend this place for the next 4 years. When you do get to the college that you picked dont be afraid to get out and be involved, it will only help you in the long run. Most of all Have Fun!

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

I would tell students not to allow their parents to make decisions for them. They need to choose where they want to go to college on their own. I would also tell them to make the most of their college experience and get involved as much as possible and most importantly study. Sometimes it is easy to get wrapped up in hanging out with new friends that you sometimes push your work aside. I would tell parents to be supportive of their childs decision on where to attend college. I would also tell them to be there for their child when they need advice or someone to talk to.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

St. Ambrose is well known for its school spirit. We are a close-knit community in which everybody knows each other. We are known for our small class sizes and the oppourtunity for students to really get to know their professors and vice versa.

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

My advice to parents and students about finding the right college is to schedule visits to the schools you are considering. I believe it is important to visit the school during the school year as opposed to during the summer. Seeing the students on campus is almost more important than the campus itself. If possible, stay the night with host students and sit in on a class or two. This way you can really get a feel for what you will be experiencing if you choose to go there. Once you decide on your school, the best way to make the most of college is to go to class. The class schedule is so much different than high school and it is easy to justify not going to class because you only miss one at a time. This could come back to bite you at the end of the semester though. Since classes may only meet once a week a lot of material is covered in one class time. Missing class means you miss a whole week's worth of material.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

One bad thing about St. Ambrose is the fact that we are growing faster than we can accomodate. A new residence hall has been built each year for the past 3 years. Despite this, at least 30 students were in temporary housing last semester. Parking on campus is also an issue because there are too many cars and not enough spots.

Not diverse enough, Ambrose needs to grow because all minorities there only make up 7% of the school population.

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

I think finding the right college is crucial to one's academic success. A very important factor is class sizes. The less students there is, the more time professors have to work individually with them. I do believe this is the most important thing to be taken into consideration when looking for the right college. Also, making the most out of college experiences is very important. College is going to be 4 years of your life that define you as an individual. I think one has the opportunity to grow and mature with college and figure out those things that are important to them and those that are not. This experience is important because for most people it is their first time on their own and the first time their morals and values will be tested. Making the most out of the time you're given are always words to live by.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the best thing about my school is the professors genuinely want the students to succeed. It is hard to find professors that go out of their way to help a student in a university.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the small campus and small classroom sizes are the best feature to the school. There is no reason to skip class because the classrooms are so close to the dorms. I like the small classroom size so I have more interaction with the professors.

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

The people there are very click-ish...still act like they are in highschool.

Visiting is key, but also one should make a list of what his or her expectations/ aspirations are for college and look for a school that will provide that .

What's unique about your campus?

The big thing about my school is that people get to know each other because it's such a small campus. However as the years pass, this gets to be more annoying than nice.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The lack of new people frustrates me. It's the trade-off for going to a small school and if I did it over again I would not have chosen a small university. Our work out facilities are terrible and the school never brings any entertainment like concerts with well-known artists.

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

I think that a prospective student needs to access what is the most important aspect of college that they hope to achieve. The college you pick should match your specific needs. Students and parents need to make a list of these requirements before visiting any colleges. Both students and parents should be prepared to ask many questions to faculty, students, and staff so that they can get a real feel for the college and its priorities. As a new student, don't be afraid to try new things and be involved. I would recommend joining clubs, taking part in campus activities, and studying abroad to enhance your overall college experience. College can be the best time in your life if you make the most of every opportunity available to you.
