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

If right now, as a freshmen college student, I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior again, there would be a tremendous amount of advice I'd give to myself. For one, to start off, I would tell myself to take my courses and studies more seriously. In high school, if I would have studied a little bit more and took advantage of all the oportunities of the grasping and memorizing all the material, it would have better prepared me for college and all of the triggerous work that was in store for me. Another thing I would tell myself, to take key advice of, would be to get more involved in my school. I'm now doing it at Salisbury Unversity, where I try to take part in every activity and learning experience I can get my hands on. Doing this now makes me realize the experience it makes and all the help it can truly be. Finally I would tell my high school senior self good job! Good job for trying so hard and making it into Salisbury Unversity, as it has been my best decision so far.

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

I brag most about how strong and united Salisbury Unversity is. It is a very big school, but yet I feel as though each and everyone of us are in our own little community together as one.

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

If I could rewind the clock I would reveal to my Senior self one thing that I have now learned in my little time at Salisbury University, and that is that this transition into adulthood and indepence is one that you can not take lightly, when you arive on camous you should take advantage for all that the University has to offer, after all you are paying for it anyways! Try everything at least once, give things a chance that you normally wouldnt have given a second glance. College is all about choices. A wise Resadent Assisent once told me "Pain is temporary but GPA is forever" and acording to the college life stigma its impossible to get acceptional grades without pulling all nighters or last minuet cram sessions, well I say thats not true at all. One lesson I've learned is never sacrafice sleep for studying cause while you might feel as though you are trying harder your brain is slowly shutting down. The point is there is no need to overwhelm yourself with stress because "everyone else" is freaking out, do not feel obligated to pulll your hair out. Like I said before college is about choices.

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

“It is the best four years of your life” an adage every high school senior has heard as they bid ado to the comforts of home. Following graduation there was plenty to do; the appeal of college life was irresistible, and the new freedom, palpable. Within the first few weeks mandatory orientation seminars and classes facilitated the growth of friendships which flourished in the absence of parental control and the presence of alcohol. An inverse relationship swiftly developed between class attendance and “extra circular activities” resulting in inadequate academic performance. A new definition, balance, was one which needed to be understood and practiced. Instead, in the remaining years academics consumed my life, as I switched majors and frantically worked to improve my GPA. A dwindling social calendar and an increasing GPA, accompanied by extensive involvement in research manifested into a bachelor’s degree. After graduation all that remains is a piece of paper and memories of “the time of my life,” but only the paper remains. Earning my degree and exceeding academically came at a price; because of the absence of balance, I could not have both an elaborate social calendar and shine academically. Learning balance would have been beneficial.

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

It would have been very benificial to have known that if I did switch majors that it was going to be difficult to graduate on time with my new major. I am aware that this is my own fault, however the program was not set up in a way that was prepared for students who may have already completed general education courses. It made it difficult as I had some of my most demanding classes within my final two semesters, along with my other lab sciences.

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

Advising for post gradute life was non exsistent, this was an opinion gathered from a students. In my situation my advisor did not really indicate that I had any other options outside of returning to graduate school. I was not completely confident in what field I wanted to recieve my masters. Additionly there was never a discussion about the types of jobs that could be offered to a student with a bachelors in biology or how to go about finding those jobs.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Salisbury University is best known for being a school of National Distinction. This university prides itself in being a public school providing the education of a private school. It is a smaller school that is known for it's close-knit community and making education the forefront of your experience.

What is unique about Salisbury University is that it is in a small city on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Besides that, it is ranked #65 in regional schools of the North in the US. That is pretty impressive for a school in a city most people have ever heard of. Coming from a small town, I find it comforting to not have to go off to a big city, but still get an equal, or better, education than most of the bigger institutions in this state.

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

If I could go back and talk to myself I would definitely tell myself to be confident. The worst thing about being where I'm from is that most people stay in that area. If they do leave, it's always somewhere no more than an hour away. I woulld tell myself to apply to more than one college because I'm not as dumb as I thought I was. That I shouldn't be so concerned with how much everything will cost, but moreso being focused on accomplishing my dreams. I want to tell myself that boys are not important and you could have gotten straight A's if you really had put in the effort. I ould tell myself that life has so much more to offer than what I thought. That, regardless of where you come from, it's where you end up that matters. Finally, I would tell myself to believe in me, because not having confidence and faith will get you nowhere. That you can do anything you put your mind to regardless of what anyone else has to say about it.

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

If I could do it all over again, I would have stayed in community college for the first two years and finished my general education credits and figured out my life. Then I would apply to schools overseas so I could study foreign language in other countries like I always wanted to. However, I don't completely regret Salisbury, it is a good school as far as education goes and I feel safe here. I just don't think it was the best choice for me!

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

The organization in the administration office and whoever schedules courses.

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

Salisbury University is like no other college. The feeling of love and acceptance that one feels while attending the University is almost overwhelming. Everyone is accepting of other people's views; there is not discrimination unlike other universities. All of the students and staff strive to help other prospective students on campus not only get good grades, but also learn the material. Professors are willing to work with any student to help them excel in class. Likewise, when one is not in class, there are numerous events going on around campus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There is not any "kind" of person that should not attend the school. As mentioned before, Salisbury accepts anyone and everyone that is willing to put forth effort to continue their education. There are a substantial amount of clubs and organizations for people to join and find something that they are passionate about. Similarly, Salisbury has career services, counseling services, senter for student achievement, etc. There is not a possiblity that someone will not find a club or place that they love. Salisbury is meant for everyone!

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

Every morning, I wake up with hope for the new day and with a personal passion that I have held since I was a child, which is to become a doctor. Considering what I know about college now, I will repeatedly advise myself to get ready for challenging and frustrating, but fun and learning environment. Since I was a child, the health care field impresses me because it encourages critical thinking and creative problem solving; it involves working collaboratively with a team of professionals toward the same goal, and these are things that I enjoy doing. As an adult, I always look forward to learning and growing my knowledge and expertise. I believe that the best place for me to learn, grow and accomplish is four years university-Salisbury University. However, I learned that it is not easy to get a bachelor degree or become a great health professional. It needs time, energy and money. Furthermore, motivation and determination are very crucial. Since I learned that there is a long and challenging journey ahead until I reach my goal. I will tell myself to bring more commitment and determination to hard work and success to my Bachelor of Science program.

What's unique about your campus?

The professor care about their students and the program that I'm in is tough but very focused. Everything we do help us to be best health professionals in the future.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

We have a lot of assignment and sometime we will have two tests per day, which is a little frustrating to handle many things at the same time.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for its partying, honestly. People are separated into cliques, but once you find some friends, you should be fine. There was no orientation for transfer students though, so I didn't meet anyone.

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

Take all different kinds of classes. You will not figure out what you want to do with your life until you take all of the wrong classes and take the right class a year too late. Don't be intimidated by the work because I promise you will benefit from it. Don't be afraid to speak up when you need help. Also, don't try to fit in with the people you aren't. The sooner you realize this, the sooner you will be happier. Go out and meet people more! Don't be afraid to come out of your shell! Stop sitting at home and watching TV. Make something of your time. Don't be afriad to ask someone to go on a hike, or to borrow a canoe. Try anything and everything because you won't know if you like it or not until you do. Love everyone and everything...until they do you wrong. Then just stay away. You don't need that in your life.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the campus. It's very small and cute. They are making efforts to make the campus more environmentally friendly too!
