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

I would tell them to explore all of their options and to not settle. Do not worry about financial matters because that can all be resolved. Put your everything into school and become comfortable with uncomfortable situations.

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

It is very small and has very little school spirit.

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

Advice that I would give to parents and students when trying to find the right college is to start by actually visiting the schools that they feel would be right for the student. In order to decide what school would be right the student should question whether they want to be a number or a person in a school. Do they prefer large lecture classes or smaller classes? Do they want to live in the city, or rural area? Once they do that go with the students gut instinct on what they are going to like the best and what school is going to help them succeed to the best of their abilities. Once they move into their dorm for the first time and start school, I would advice joining clubs, leave your door open and say hi to people that you don't know. If you want to play sports join a sport or go to sporting events and support friends you make that are in sports. The last thing is to remember to be yourself and stay true to yourself in making friends at school and choosing the right school for you.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The cost of the bookstore, and the quality of food that Chartwell's serves. The food is over priced at the Cardinal and Cotter Cafe, and the food in the Cafetria is unappealing and not very good. The bookstore is making more money off of us versus making money off of us and making books affordable and accessible.

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

Advice I would give to parents and students about finding the right college and making use of your time there would be this: College is a place where one transitions from youth to adulthood. You need to pick a place where you feel comfortable, yet feel enough pressure to drive you do excel. You need to keep in mind the relationships that mean the most to you, like having family and friends close by. You need to remember that while it is only four years, it is four years of constant growth and self-discovery. The place where you choose to go to school should have the major you want to pursue, and also offer things you're interested in and a community that you will find support in. Making the most out of your experience is up to you. The best thing that I ever did was become active within my community, making it mine and feeling like I was contributing. Joining a community is how you should look at finding a great school for a college education.

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

You need to know what you want when looking at colleges because there are so many different ways to go. Choosing the right school is so essential because you need be able to do everything there including studying, learning, being able to express yourself fully, eating, of couse having fun, socializing, sleeping and living in this environment. College life is completely different from home life and for the better or not comes from choosing the right school. Always stay focused on your goals and do everything you can to keep them in your grasp. It is always a good idea to get to know your professors because they will be able to help you with what you what to do. Always be yourself and have fun.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the lasaillian based teaching style and sense community the school provides. I feel this school teaches you what you will need to know in the work place, but also the rest of the world. The school helps shape you to be an inspirational person and to do your part in forming the upcoming world that we will all be living in.

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

I wish I had actually known more about myself, because I learned so much in the first year and it was all for the better. The college atmosphere is a great place to learn about who you are and what you want to be in life. It gives you the freedom to simply be yourself and learn about the world you live in.
