If given the opportunity to talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself to focus more on the atmosphere of a campus rather than the presumed prestige of a particular school before making a final decision. Campus visits are very helpful when considering your options. The most important part of the transition into college life is that you are comfortable within your surroundings. It may not happen right away, as it is normal to feel apprehensive about leaving home for the first time, but if you feel out of place and uncomfortable on a campus, you will not be able to succeed there either socially or academically. In order to be successful anywhere you must be confident in yourself and it is difficult to do that in an atmosphere where you feel unwelcome. It is for this reason that I feel the atmosphere of a school is more important than the prestige of the university. I feel that, in many instances, you get out of your education what you put into it and if you are not confident in your abilities you have very little hope of succeeding.

The most important thing that I have learned about college life and the transition into to college is to not put too much pressure on yourself. During my senior year, there was a lot of people that told me that since college is a new beginning I would be able to start over. I found this to be untrue though because I put so much pressure on myself to make friends that I was not able to make friends and started to act differently so people would like me. I quickly realized that the group of friends I made did not really like me, they liked the fake me. So, my advice would be to just be yourself. You will make true friends that way. You are better off making friends that like you for who you actually are rather than the person that you created in order to fit in. Also, it is important to keep your old friends from high school, but do not let them hold you back.
Anyone that I looking for a school that is not too big, but not too small. There is a nice campus, so if you like spending time outside it is a good school to go to. The education program is very good.
The campus is beautful. The dorms are very nice. In the suites you get your own bathroom.

I believe that if a person wants to really take themselves seriously, willing to make fantastic, life long friends, that wants a good career, that is a very good academic person, and overall a kind and generous person to all should attend this school.
I believe that if a person are not willing to make friends, not willing to try something new and different, to engage yourself and to try a different studying habit, or to try to change their life for the better should not attend this school.

Our school is mainly known for our pride in our school. We have things such as Green & White Fridays where everyone wears our school colors; also, if we are stressed from too much homework or we need good luck for a big test, then we "rub the rock", in which 4 monumental rocks are placed around campus and we rub if for good luck. The pride throughout our university is incredible we are so proud to be a part of it.
If I could go back in time as a high school senior, I would tell myself to always work hard and to never give up when there is always more that you can do. When I was a senior, I worked hard; however, when it came to applying for scholarships I always thought they weren't important. Now that I am in college and had to obtain student loans to pay for it, I realized that this is the real world now and that it isn't right to "slack off" when it comes to applying for scholarships-- no matter how long they may take. Even if the scholarship is only $250, that is still a lot more than what I had before. In my future, I have a set myself career path. My dream is to become a dancer and perform for Disney Cruiseline, and even though that may sound like an amazing job, I know a dancer's pay is extremely low. Consequently, I know that if I try my absolute hardest to obtain scholarships and grants, my life after college will not be so bad. To conclude, I would tell my senior self, "scholarships are important".
A person who is interested in the field of engineering would not come to this school, or anything related to that field. Other than that, our university is very well rounded and offers so much to their students.

Don't stress out too much. Even if you struggle in high school, college is a new start. Anyone can succeed in college, as long as you are willing to put in the work.
It always seems to be raining in Slippery Rock. The campus is on a bunch of hills, so after it rains there are streams of water on the walkways.
The exercise science programs is one of the best. All of the professors are really helpful.

Senior year is one of the hardest and most confusing times in a young persons life. It's the year where you are faced with so many big decisions and options. It's also the time when you feel like every move you make is being watched under a microscope and everything you decide on needs to impress those around you. If i could go back and talk to myself, I would tell myself not to worry about what others want and focus on what I want. I would have told myself that going to college for undecided isn't going to dissapoint those around you. I would actually be more persistent about taking my time and making sure I was happy with every single decision. I would have told myself to relax and just let God take the wheel. I see now that everything worked out just the way it needed too and that all that worrying got me nowhere. If I could go back, I would be more precise and sure about every choice i made. Unfortunately I can't go back, but i can start using this advice now.
The best thing about the school I will be attending is the oppertunities it provides with the major I have chosen to study for.
The worst thing about the school I will be atteneding is how far away it is from where I live.

I would tell myself not to focus so much on my social life and focus more on my studies. I barely studied in high school, and if I studied more, then I could have gotten a higher GPA and possibly some scholarships. The little petty things that happen with friends and boys do not matter in the long run. Good grades lead to a bright future, not a boyfriend. That is why this year I am learning from my mistakes and focusing a lot on my studies.
There are a wide variety of people at SRU from nerds to jocks. So, Slippery Rock is for everyone. Although, whoever attends must not mind rain because it rains a lot compared to where I'm from which is south-central PA.

Amanda. I know you're confused on where you want to go to school. Just remember where ever you go have fun. Don't declare a major it will just put added pressure and maybe down the road you want to change it. You will feel lost in what you want to be, but thats normal. Also, don't try to do everything. You can't do it all. Take a step back and relax sometimes. Go to a football game, hang out with friends, play hockey but don't make it all about school. Remember all those naps you didn't take when you were little. Well here's your chance to make them up. During the day if you feel like you need it. Take one, but only for 30-45 minutes or your head will hurt. It will help you feel refreshed. In the end, always remember that you can do it and don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
There are a lot of things that are the best at Slippery Rock. I think if I had to choose one would be the proffesors. You really learn a lot from them and they all are so nice and helpful when you need it.

I would tell myself to make sure I say on top of my academic endavors becasue of my athletics for the school. I would make sure I knew that I need to study more than I had in order to keep myself out of grade troubles during the semester, especially during the sports season.
The things I am doing in my major because it is one of the top Exercise Science programs in the country. Also the things I have accomplished in athletics and the things I do with friends on the weekends.
