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

Make sure it is the college the students want becasue if it is what the parents want, you are going ot have an unhappy student that has to live with it

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

Find a place where you get the "home" vibe and you will like it. If you're not comfortable in the environment you will not be comfortable in the classroom. Try an overnight stay if you're still not sure. Talk to a few professors on a college visit.

Saint Mary's College is very small, but more attention is put on by professors.

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

I went on 12 college visits my senior year of high school, and Saint Mary's College was the last college I visited. The first 11 college visits just didn't ignite any sparks. But, when I visited Saint Mary's, I knew that this was the atmosphere I wanted to be a part; especially being very close to the University of Notre Dame. I love having a place where I can act like myself, not feel ashamed by my background, and NOT being pressured into something I do not want to do. Finding a college is a very hard decision to make; but, once you know, you know! :)

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

To parents of a highschool student who is looking at colleges I would say to trust your student, he/she knows what will be best for themselves. It is a difficult time in both you and your student's lives, so try to be understanding and do not put too much stress on this decision because if you do then they might make the wrong choice. Things for you to look for in a college are a college's security and acedmics departments, since these are the two main areas of worry that you will face once your student leaves for college. To the student looking for that perfect school. Make sure you stay opened minded and consider all your options before dismissing a school off your list. Do not just worry about the type of social/night life the college has but also consider housing, academics, and athletic facilities. To make the most out of your college experience be yourself, strive to do your best in your classes, and make friends. To ensure that you keep academics and your social life balenced just remember to study hard and party harder.

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

I would consider the fact that the majority of the students are from upper- middle class and wealthy families to be the worst thing about my school. I feel this way because it is often hard for students who come from a lower class to easily fit in. Being an all girls school, we often try to fit in by looking at what the fashion trends are, but when the majority of girls are wearing North Face coats, Ugg Boots and carrying around designer bags, it makes it very difficult to fit in.

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

First off: plan ahead. There are a lot of things that are going to be new for you and your family when going to college. It may or may not be your first time without them and it can be hard to adjust. Don't give up. It will get better. Second: Only you can decide what is right for you. Everyone else can offer opinions and advice but only you can make the final decision. So do what is right for you. It's your education. Third: To get the most out of college, be yourself! You'll be surprised to find out how many people share your same favorite movies, tv shows, etc. Next thing you know, you have a whole group of new best friends! Don't be afraid to try new things and don't be too quick to judge others. Try to keep an open mind and open heart and you will be able to take full advantage of everything college life has to offer.

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

This school is a lot more challenging than many give it credit for. We learn a lot in our small classes. I wish I had known that there is a little bit of animosity between Saint Mary's girls and the Notre Dame girls across the street. I don't know why, but there is. There are plenty of people on both campuses however that do not take part in this animosity, but be on the look out for those that do.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That there are no boys on campus! Seriously, it is so nice getting up in the morning for class and realizing that you don't have to look especially nice for some guy that's in your class. It makes it a lot easier to keep social and academic life seperate because when you are in class you can focus on your work.

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

The smaller class sizes and attentive professors make every day an exciting learning experience. The professors are committed to helping you make the best of your college experience and being the best you can in your field. The small class sizes also encourage students to actively participate in class discussions and ask questions.

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

Talk with the professors! If the professors care about the students and have a passion for their field, they will inspire that in your student and your student will in turn at least enjoy the class.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The fact that because SMC is an all women's college, I don't have to put on make up or dress up to go to classes! Also the fact that the professors were the ones that got me to choose my major and minor because of their passions.
