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

Your college is the most crucial part to molding your future. For the next four years, it's what shapes and defines you. Don't choose a cheap school just because it's affordable. And if you choose a lofty school you love to brag about, you might just be in debt for the rest of your life. Pick a reasonable school that feels right for you. Don't worry about what anyone else thinks but yourself. I declined my first choice dream school because it was 45 thousand a year. The school I attend currently...let's just say when people ask where I go I respond with "oh just ____." I was discouraged when I found out that financial aid wasn't going to help me so I ended up going somewhere really cheap out of spite. PREPARE YOURSELF. Make sure you want to be there. Make sure you're smiling when you're walking around campus. Make sure you can relate to the people there, and you think they look like potential friends. My classmates are my most trusted allies; my most valuable research tools. There's so much to learn from people if you just ask.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best for the nursing and teaching program that is offered for students. It's also known for its competitive athletic teams such as the football team, and the women's basketball team who have both made it into the NCAA tournament.

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

Picking a college is one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make in your life. After all it's the stepping stone that will help lead you to create a future for yourself. The process can be stressful and chaotic , but if you learn how to do it the right way, you will soon discover how easy it can really be. The college that you decide to attend usually determines a lot about the kind of person you are. For instance, I like to be active, I'm a hands on learner and I'm very family oriented. Looking within myself to find out who I truly am made the process of picking my college out a lot easier. Remember you?re usually attending college for four years, so when making this decision make sure it?s the right one. College is a big part of anyones' life. You make life long connections there, you discover yourself, learn new things, and most importantly you set the path for your future. Make the best of this experience because you will never having anything else like it.

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

The worst thing about my school, is how it's underconstruction and will be for a length of time. Getting into a dorm is also another hassle at Southern. It's extremely competitive, and if you don't pay your housing deposit on time, you most likely won't be able to live on campus. Changes are desperatley needed in order to make this university a better place.

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

The best part about my school is its location. It has a very nice balance of urban and rural settings. New Haven is a nice small city that is not overwhelming, and it does not take long to get to places where you can experience the joy of the outdoors. I am from the country so it is very nice to be able to have places nearby that are not too urban and that remind me of home.

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

The best thing you can do when searching for the right university is to go to the campus. Walk around, see the area, and try to get a feel for what your environment is going to be if you are to attend that university. Getting a feel for the environment is extremely important; more than anything you need to be comfortable at your school. Being comfortable in your school environment gives you one less factor to worry about while you are at school (believe me, there are a lot!). If you are uncomfortable, it will be even harder to adjust to college life. It will be harder or near impossible to become academically comfortable so you can study and talk with your professors and do all the academic necessities you encounter; it will be harder to become socially comfortable and make friends; it will be harder to become emotionally comfortable in order to deal with the different stresses you face with this great change in your life. If you attend a university that you are comfortable with, you will be able to make the most of your experience, and you will be able to expand your education to its fullest.

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

I wish I had known more about the acamdemics. I was unsure of what I wanted to study, and I wish that upon enrolling in the school I received more academic advisement before I signed up for my first semester of courses. I would have liked to have been able to talk to somebody from the university one-on-one about my education.

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

I think it's very important to look at many different schools to find out what is best for the student. Many times students say that they want a small school, but then realize that it's just like high school. They may also say that they want a large school and feel very overwhelmed. Take tours of the campuses and sit in on classes. If you can, try to arrange an overnight with other students to get a complete feel of a typical school day. It's all about the application process and you have to test the waters at every school you're looking at.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the best thing about my school is that the professors are very open and helpful. Southern's a pretty large school and it's difficult to find professors that are willing to help out their students in whatever way they can. Whether its an issue in their class, another class, or non-academic the professors are very helpful and only want you to succeed.

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

Picking out the perfect college can be a very difficult task, but finding that college is key to success. It is very important to pick a school where you feel at home, but also a little bit out of your comfort level at times. This allows you to experience new things and new cultures. Also, class size is very important. You need to decide what level of familiarity you wish to have with your professors. Do you want to be a number or do you want to be a name, face, and personality? You also need to decide if partying is important to you because, let's face it, everyone knows there's some kind of party scene on campuses and the amount of partying (whether or not you'll be participating) affects your school work, social life, and stress level. Most important though, is academics (as boring as that may sound). College is the path to your career and receiving the best possible education is very important and key to success. Check into the different programs available at your school to make sure they are exactly what you're looking for. Good luck!!

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

The worst thing about Southern is dealing with those in the Registrar's office or Financial Aid. They are very rude and condescending and tend to give you the run around. The best thing to do is immediately speak with a higher up. Most people working in the offices tend to seem bothered when you ask them for help or just for them to do their job.

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

The size and the personability of the professors with the students. The president is seen all over campus mingling with students and the professors are very kind and willing to help.
