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

The sky is the limit at SCSU, and truly take advantage of the countless resurces and connection to the professional world available. Also, do not forget to get involved in a few of the amazing and unique groups on campus.

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

Having Long trem goals is the key to knwoing what college is right for you because all college is is the path to wherever you want to be for the next 20 or 30 years of your life. If you have a final goal and ideal job, then choosing what school that will best equip you for that will therefore be that much easier.

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

I brag mostly about the beautiful campus, opportunities, and unique student body at Southern.

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

Southern is very deversitied and offers a lot of trips to places off campus, which is really a great way to meet people and stay on campus. the housing and dorms were also a lot better then many other colleges. Thought there was enough space for two people in one dorm room.

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

The best way too choose the right college, is to really like the on campus living situation because that is your new home, and if you dont like the rooms or feel uncomfortable showering or anything, its not right for you. Also make sure you do not mind having too small classroom size or too big, you want the best for you and what you feel comfortable being a part of. One will know walking around how comfortable they feel there, and if its right for them. Always look into everything and do not go by what other people say, do what you feel is right, and pick a college for you, not becasue of a friend or boyfriend.

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

the worst thing about Southern is the signing in and out, and all the little rules living in an on campus apt or dorm. Sometimes they can be a little too strict and treat you like babies. Also the shuttles should go around more places besides just on campus buildings.

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

That the advisement is not good and to talk to other people attending the school before registering for classes.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wants a degree. It is very possible for anyone who tries their best.

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

Finding the right college is very important. It can help you find who you are and finding who you are is very important. Make the best choice upon the schools you are looking at. The ones who benefit you the most and the one who will make you the happiest. Besides it being the best school always make the most of out everything. College is ladder to your future.

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

That it is not very school spirited and a lot of people go home on the weekends.

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

i would tell parents and future college students that it is a good idea to take lots of intro level classes because you may think that you want to do something, but could find something that is even better for you, it is okay to change your major even if you are going to need to take a summer class or two to get caught up, in the long run it is worth it! Going to class is the hardest part of college as long as you show up, and listen you will learn so dont skip class! Get involved with the campus community, it is the best way to make friends and meet people who have the same interests as you! go out and be friendly the more friendly you are the better chance you have to make more friends, and dont judge people until you know them, just because someone may wear differnt clothes, have different interests or even look different it does not mean that you cant be friends with them!!

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

that you have to take 3 "W" courses before you are allowed to graduate, yet the school does not offer a lot of "w" courses each semester so it is easy to not take them, therefore it is easy to get behind!

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

Ask the questions that really matter to you/your student. If they're really into extra-curriculars, ask. If they want to know about academics, contact the department head of their chosen major and ask to have a meeting with them. Take tours, ask if they have an alumnus who would like to tell them a bit about what the school was like for them. If safety is a concern, talk to the campus police and gather statistics about the surrounding area. Also, get your scholarship/financial aid paperwork done early, excessively early. Once you get to college, have a life, and go to class. You only get out what you put in, so you need to expend effort if you want to do well in your classes. Set priorites, because you're not going to have time to do everything that you want to do, so do what's important to you first. Don't forget to make friends and be social. Part of the college experience is meeting new people and making lifelong friends. It's all a balancing act. You need to be able to manage your time well and have a little bit of everything.

What's unique about your campus?

Extra-curriculars and the friendships formed there. I made hardly any close friends in any of my classes, but all the people who were involved in the same clubs as me (particularly theater club, which I was most active in) became like a second family. There are a lot of fun and educational activities that clubs put on, and they are the most worthwhile thing about the school.

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

The administration. They lose everything from paperwork to payments, frequently drop students from their classes without reason or notification, and change rules and don't adhere to the law of "grandfathered in" like they are obligated to. There are a million stupid rules and ridiculous amounts of tedious paperwork in order to do anything, and the administrative staff is more concerned about power trips and covering their own asses than they are with helping students or listening to reason.

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

The education program at Southern Connecticut State University is amazing, I had only applied to the state schools and by far SCSU had the best education program, it also has a wonderful nursing program for anybody pursuing that.

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

I would tell students not to worry about distance from home, that was my biggest concern when I was choosing a college and it limited me so much. Being away from home and gaining your independence is what college is all about. This is a time for parents to let go of their children, and if you can afford it I would defineitely reccomend living on-campus or at least away from home for college. Living away from home was a big step for me in gaining my own independence and I have reccomended that to all my friends that have since graduated and applied to colleges. Just find a school that you feel comfortable with and feel that you fit into, no matter how close or far from home you may need to go.

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

I brag the most about how much I love my classes and the people in them.

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

Always ask questions. I wish I would have asked more I figured that out this semster. Now I talk to everyone that I meet in my classes and try to take advise from everyone I can.

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

That I would not finish in two years like they make you belive.

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

Nothing, I dont get to see my friends often because Im taking six classes and all I do is work and go to school.
