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

I would tell myself that first, there is nothing to be afraid of. College campuses are a friendly enviornment, the students and faculty work together and are more mature with each other, and you have been prepared for this work. College sounds overwhelming and difficult, but because you worked so hard during high school, you have prepared yourself to handle the classes and amounts of projects. You will also literally be on your own when making you schedule. No one tells you to go to class, you have to make yourlself. And your professors won't hunt you down to finish your work; that is your responsibilty. You will have to learn how to manage your time throughout the year, and learn how to tackle classes, and job, and a good social life. Universities offer many extra-curricular activites, so making new friends is very easy. Dorming also gives you a good and independent expierience, so go for it! If you're worried about tuition costs, Financial Aid is easy to obtain. So don't be picky with your schools, go explore!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who wants a good college expierience but doesn't want to stray far from home, or spend thousands of dollars.

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

Southern has a very diverse campus, and everyone enjoys each others company. You will see groups of students, such as the art scholar, guitarist, break dancer, and football player, having a blast together, even if career interest's or hobbies aren't similar. Everyone is always smiling, and it's just a calm, friendly environment.

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

When it is time for a parent to prepare a child for college, it is very important that the parent understands that their child will be attending a school for 4+ years, and regardless if they live on campus or not, they must respect that their child has their own personality, just as every college does, and which ever college they choose, know that its because they have researched it well enough to know it fits their every day lifestyle. Students should make sure that their financial aid is in place, since time are getting harder for everyone, the more financial help we as students can receive from grants, scholarships, and the governement, the better. Students should remain focused and know that there is always time for fun, but the most important thing for the next few years is a powerful education.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone can attend this school to be honest. As said before, Southern is very diverse, and there is an activity for everyone. They do alot of residence life programs to keep everyone happy and active as well. A person who loves to feel as if they were at home would most definitely enjoy this school because the people around you turn into family for the most part.

If the opportunity comes to go away to college take it, being away teaches a person responsibility. It is also important that both the parents and students keep an open mind.

Southern Connecticut State University is unique compared to other schools that I considered because it really is driven for success. Being one of the best schools for educational studies I knew from the begining that this was my school. I have dreamed of being a teacher ever since I can remember. Also being that Southern is such a close nit school, I wanted to be in an environment that I felt confterable and I knew that this was possible here.

SCSU is very diverse. Everyone seems to get along, and it has a lot of different classes to choose from.

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

The best advice I can give to parents or prospective students is to keep looking at colleges until they find the best one that suits their own personal needs. I chose what college was convenient to get to, and which was easily affordable. Even though a school might be convenient and affordable, it's not always the best choice. I'm happy with where I'm at, but I do wish I had applied to more schools and looked around more before settling on a state university. If you enjoy where you go to school, it's much easier to succeed. Check out every aspect of the school, including the campus housing, the department you are joining, clubs, dining halls, and even sit in on classes. The more you get involved before you attend the school, the more you will know if it is the right place for you.

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

I highly recommend a place that requires students to live on campus for the first year. It really gives students the ability to find out who they are and become bonded with their fellow classmates. It should also have a low crime rate and excellent reputation for their teachers.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who is willing to get a quality education.

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

It is a great school with many opportunities to meet new friends. It has a very modern library to do research on those hard term papers. Excellent teachers and staff.

What's unique about your campus?

The large school but close knit family.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person should know who they are. So many of the students have no idea what they want and get stuck at our campus for years trying to get a degree with no guidence.
