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

My advice to a student looking for the right college for them would be to find one that is known for being a good academic school, but not completely out of your budget. If you want to go to a big name school, transfer after a year or two from a state school because that could possibly save you a good amount of money in the long run. Make sure you feel comfortable at the school when you go to visit it. You should feel like you really belong there if it is the right school for you.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Student that isn't looking to spend lots of money on college, but still wants to get a good degree. Someone who isn't white-bred and ignorant.

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

I would say that there should be no stigma attached to going to whatever college you want to. Even if it doesn't have a huge name that everyone will recognise, it shouldn't matter anymore, all that matters is the quality of your education and employers know that. Also being able to recive the same education a a fraction of the coast was a huge aspect ofwhere i chose to attend, so this is not a desion to take lightly for sure, resurech! Before you commit t anything.

What's unique about your campus?

TRhe best part about SCSU is the teaching program, they are recognized as one of the best education schools in the country and they deffinitly live up to that. They put you in the classroom and in the field at all levels of learning iti extremly nice. Also the the campus is exremly nice, and the location can not be beaten it hass the perfect location for me.

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

The worst thing about SCSU is the dorm life, it really stinks. Plus the students mostly only care about drinking but besides that which is to be expected on any campus its fine.

Describe the students at your school.

Many students in the lower-level courses seem as though they could not care less about their academic career. Some of them are rude, and will even go so far as to make fun of professors during class. It seems like some of them have trouble reaching the maturity level of a true college student. Once I started taking courses in my major, I found that I had a lot in common with many of my classmates and many of us are in the same classes each semester. We collaborate and work well as students of the Foreign Language Department.

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

There is no actual bus/shuttle schedule- it just comes whenever it pleases which is mind-boggling. The campus is also split in half by a city street that students have to cross just to get to class every day. We have a good reputation for our Education and Nursing schools.

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

I would say that any experience is what you make of it, but having said that, you also get what you pay for. Check out the Administrative aspect of the University and how it functions because it can make such a huge difference- something that Southern Connecticut State University really needs to work on.

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

Choose a college that is right for you. Dont go there just because friends are, and make the best of it. Be open to meeting new people, and doing new things. Make the best of college, because its probably going to be the best expierience of your life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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

I would definitley say go on a tour of the school before hand. I know so many people who just applied to a school to go somewhere and didn't even visit the campus before hand. I really feel like you have to go walk around and see how you personally feel there and although you will be nervous since it's such a big change you will know what school fits you best after actually going and visiting a few.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing would be the amount of help you can get outside of the classroom and how understanding most of my teachers have been up to this point. Another thing I really like is, I feel like I am the perfect distance away from home; not too far and not too close.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who for a social life likes to go downtown a lot, or go home on the weekends. I feel like they would have the best of both worlds since the work here may be stressful at time but it is still managable so you can still have a life outside of school work.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are hard working individuals whom try very hard to study and get somewhere for this competitive working enviroment and don't hesitate to celebrate with friends and have a good time.

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

Be your self, try hard, and don't let yourself down by not getting the most of this oppritunity to have a good education and make something for self, and earn a bright and happy future. For the parents, you have done an excellent job getting your child to this level, and that parents must continue to be supportive for their children thus further. College is an excellent experience, and whether or not you live on campus or not, you will make friends, and experience new things almost every day. The professors teach you things you have never known before, and enhance subjects which you already have developed. College is a good answer for a bright future.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who should not attend this school is someone who is not comitted to their future or an education.

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

I would tell them to visit the colleges that they would like to attend, so that they would be able to witness the school that they may be attending. Also ask as many questions as possible, know your surroundings and make as many friends as possible. Make sure the school can offer you what ever it is that you may need as well.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The person that should attend this school should like different type of people.And should not be afraid to be socialize with people from different backgrounds. They should also like decent sized class rooms the classes here aren't that big and some are even small with like 20 people in them.

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

I would try to find a college that fits the enviroment that you want to be around. Once you find the right college there are always going to be activities that are easy to get involved with and most schools offer almost everything a person can think of. There is a place for everyone at every college and it is important to find a place where you feel comfortable and offers all the activites that you wish to participate. Also if you find yourself in a position where you are not enjoying your college experience figure out why and the transfering process has become easy and there are a lot of people that are there to help with the process of transfering everything you accomplished at anohter university. Lastly enter school with an open mind and be open to new experiences, there are many oppertunities for stuents to experience new things and not taking advantage of that will hinder the college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

Small campus that allows for a lot of interaction with people and professors around the campus

What kind of person should not attend this school?

someone who likes big schools, doesnt like small interactive classes and likes to go to big parties

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

When looking at colleges for your children, make sure to visit the colleges and ask as many questions as possible. Even try to have your student shadow an upperclassemne to sit in class with them. encourage your son/daughter to fight for theor grades and to go to the colege that they want to attend. Speak to guidance councilors about colleges, and do not forget to do fianancial aid right away. It is a pain to do it last minute. if your son/daughter does not get into the college they want to get in, still encorage them to keep their grades up and maybe they can transfer.

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

The worst thing about Southern Connecticut State University is the location. there are always sirens being heard, and off campus is not safe to be at night. If anyone is to walk off campus they should be in groups and use the buddy system which is sticking with the same people or one person for the whole night. The best thing is the security, cops are always patrolling the area and send the students alert messages when somethigng bad has happened.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that is willing to learn to the best of their ability. someone that will put all of their time into school and put their best foot forward. Attending this college was the best choice that I could have made. I am close to home and still keep in contact with my friends from high school. the enviornment is very friendly and ther is a lot of help among faculty and staff. the classes are tough and a person has to stay focused and turn their sociual life on a lower level.
