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

Fit: A word that has recently been tossed around as important when applying to college; an important criterion. How does one know what fits? Both empirical and intuitive forces can help to determine what is right for a certain individual. When both are considered, the holistic viewpoint is worthy of a choice. However, sometimes it is just one that can help you choose. If intuitively a student hates the ?feel? of a campus the moment he/she walks on it, this is of significance and not something to be understated. Fit is about comfort and more than comfort. A student applying to college should listen to what is important to them personally. I want to stress the benefit of visiting colleges before applying. Even if you do not want to get attached somewhere you may not get in, without sacrificing this potential feeling, you will never know what other campuses have to offer that you may not have considered. I will leave you with insight I learned. After ruling out an all women?s college, I visited a friend who went to Scripps and then loved the entire night. Now I am here, and I love my choice.

What's unique about your campus?

The consortium of five schools is definitely one of the best things here. There are so many different types of people, there are quite places and loud places and plenty of resources of a large school but with a small school feel.

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

When first arriving it is hard to adjust, but that is probably the same anywhere else.

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

There is absolutely nothing that can replace stepping onto the campus for a visit. You get such a good sense of the students, the quality of on-campus life, and the undefinable "feeling" of whether or not this place would be a good fit. When you first start school, try out everything that sounds interesting, even if it isn't something you've ever done: sports, on-campus groups, volunterring, etc. As your first semester progresses, you'll get a good sense of what it is *you* want out of a college experience and campus life based on the things you've done and the things you're missing.

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

You don't strictly need a car, but it is very diffcult to get outside the city of Claremont without one.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone looking for a small, friendly liberal arts college where you know most of the students and are involved in further developing the school's short and long-term goals.
