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

Do not, under any circumstances, allow your beloved offspring, or lack there of, to attend this travesty of an institution and tax dollars by the PA state citizens. I hate Ed Rendell, and you can blame him for cutting the edjumacation budget.

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

How much the administration doesn't care about studying abroad and how valuable languages other than Spanish and French are, and how important the social sciences are as opposed to their uncanny obsession with making gym teachers and "theraputic recreation" counselors. True story.

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

I feel like I haven't learned anything, although I write a lot of papers and do a lot of discussions, my language classes are mediocre and the school doesn't care about study abroad programs.

Describe the students at your school.

Eager to learn, prepared, fun and enthuastic about life, friendly, career orientated and normal is how I would describe the classmated at SRU.

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

My advice to parents and students is to take their time and decide what school is best for your education based on academics. It is important to consider all finances along with academics when choosing a college. Don't choose a university because your friends or family have attended or will be attending there. College is the beginning of a life long career and it is crucial for a student to be in the proper surroundings. Also, I would suggest to a student to meet with the staff and faculty and become a familiar face in the classroom. If ever the time should arise when you need advice or assistance from a professor, it would be beneficial if they already know your face. Enjoy your college career for what it is and you will get more than an education in book smarts.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I am not frustrated with anything at the university.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Slippery Rock University, like any university can be hectic and stressful at times, but seems to be a very welcoming kind community.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are usually social people who are slow to warm up, but generally kind once you get to know them.

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

The strongest advice I could give to a student/parent, is to visit the college, get to know some of the staff and be sure to take note of the interactions of the students on campus. Pay attention to your own feeling of the campus and whether you feel you would fit in, or feel comfortable at the college. Make sure you assess the intrested course programs available, to determine whether you feel like the educations experience will be worthwhile. The other aspects, like sports, involvement, food, getting to class, ecetra will fall into place. Focus on the desireable degree available first, then how you will feel at the college. Remember, you could spend around four years at this college, if you don't like it when you look at it, you probably won't like it later.
