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

Know exactly what your college offers and what kind of students attend the school. Imagine yourself being a student their and if it's the kind of lifestyle you really want. Keep all your options open and go with your instincts.

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

There is too much racism. When I first started, there was not a lot of diversity so not everyone got along very well. It's too small of a school and everyone is consntatly in your business. Undergraduate dorms are unhealthy and unkept. There is violence in our area and I feel unsafe.

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

That it is close to the city and the professors enjoy what they do.

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

Find a school that has a variety of course offerings. Take different courses that expose you to different cultures and viewpoints. Ask for help immediately if you need it. Put academics first then socializing second, but maintain a balance. Strive for excellence in whatever you ontake, if you are going to half do something it is not worth doing at all.

What's unique about your campus?

The friendlyness of the faculity and staff. They are always encouraging and willing to assist whenever needed.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is serious about their academics.

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

Make sure it is what you want. Some people may like the big universities, others may like the smaller ones, but make sure that the college or university you choose is the best fit for you the student. As for making the most out your college experience, don't party too much because a lot of the new freshmen that comes in the school, especially the ones that live in the dorms, parties a lot because they feel that they are finally free from their parents, but they fail to understand that yes you are going to want to party, but college is a whole new field from high school and it requires more attentiveness and more studying. So my advice to the students is to stay in the books and do as best as you can your freshman year because it is only going to get harder as the years follow.

What's unique about your campus?

The diversity of people and clubs because without that, our school may not be as diverse as it is.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The food! There is hardly any variety and the food always stays the same. Another thing that is frustrating is the fact our meal plan cannot rollover to the following semester and that we can't use our transfer money to pay for books.

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

It's close to my house and where i've taken irish dance lessons since first grade, so i can still irish dance at my dance school. didn't have to transfer dance schools.

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

Make a list of everything you love to do. What are you passionate about, and what are your goals in life. I'm an Irish dancer. I started in first grade and it's something I don't want to give up, so I chose to live at a college that is close to my Irish dance school. Also, the college I attend has a dance team (pom and hip hop). I tryed out and it has been the most wonderful experience and I have made some very close friends. Another passion on my list is music. I also joined the radio station at my college and have my own show and hold am the promotions manager. I have learned so much that will help me with my ultimate goal (my career choice). I am working on my degree in Mass Communications and hope to one day start my own record label. My college courses along with experience at the station are preparing me to make my goals come true.

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

sxu paw prints. the dance team. we freakin rock : ) too bad we're considered a "club activity" and we don't get much funding so we do fund raising on ouw own to compete at nationals.

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

In order to succeed in college several criteria must be met. Colleges and universities are as diverse as the communities they are in. Thus, it is important for a student to take time to consider the fact that the college they attend is suited properly for them. Students must consider whether they enjoy large classes or small classes, rural life or city life, public schools or private schools, as well as have a general idea of what field of study they want to pursue. Once these questions have been answered, a student can substancially narrow his or her choices of possible colleges down. When making the final decision on what college to attend, it is important to look at the average students who are attending that school on a daily basis. Schools will always put their best foot forward on orientation day, so go on a private tour when the school isn't having orientation (many schools offer this option), and look at what the day-to-day life at the college is like. If you can picture yourself being happy at that college, and in your field of study, then that it is probably the right college for you.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who enjoys city life, yet likes the small campus environment. This school is ideal for students who enjoy small class sizes and stimulating classroom discussions.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The financial aid department tends to not work with students on an individual basis. As a whole in the university, studetnts are treated with respect and dignity, but when in the financial aid office, you're treated as if you're just a number on a computer screen.
