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?

Find the best college that is fit for you in every aspect of your life and keep a strong family and friend support network throughout your college years. Always have a plan B, work hard and give it all you have. Don't be afraid to explore and challenge yourself to new things and new people.

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

The great and brand new dorm buildings and the access we have to our professors in each class.

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

To find the right college, follow your heart, but also visit as many colleges as possible to find out what athmosphere you like better. To make the most of your college experience, remain focused despite the numerous distractions that will come your way. Also, make use of all of the resources that you will have available. that's what they are there for.

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.

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

Make sure you visit the college campus in order to see if you feel safe and at home. There is nothing worse than showing up to move in to the campus and discovering that it is not what you want it to be or what it looked like in the brochure. In order to fully get the college experience make sure you interact with those around you, even if it is just about class. Do not be afraid to talk to others. Attend events hosted by the university of your choice. Above all make sure you learn how to manage your time in order for all of your school work to be done and still have time to play.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People that want to get lost in a crowd

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

I think Saint Xavier provides a closer knit community than other Chicago or big state schools are able to provide to its student body. It's nice to see familiar faces everyday on campus.

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

I would tell parents and/or students to take time in finding the 'right' school. It is, indeed, time consuming but the result is well worth it. I would tell them to not only look into how the academics are presented in the school but also other services/programs the school provides for leisure purposes as well. I would also tell students to participate in as much extracurricular activities as possible so that years after their college graduation, they will not regret NOT doing something. In short, have fun!

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

I wish I knew that Saint Xavier's faculty and staff are a lot more willingly to help you out than I initially led myself to believe.

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

Figure out what is best for you, a small or large classroom setting. The most important part may not be the social scene, but rather the educational aspect of the college. Also look into the availability of the professors, that is very important

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

The social life on campus can be dead on weekends. You really have to extend yourself to find something to do. Also, the location is not exactly "city living" like the school promotes. Although it is located close to stores restaurants, it is somewhat difficult to get around. Also, the workload expected by the professors can seem overwhelming, and somewhat difficult. In comparison to other colleges it seems very extreme.

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

The small living community is great! The oncampus apartments are beautiful. The safety is phenomenal. The environment is clean and safe. It is a good place to live and work in!
