Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I believe that our school is best known for it's great computer, and information technology programs. As well as the textile programs, and high hiring rate straight out of college.

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

I believe that the best advice I ever got regarding finding the right college was to just take my time with it. Too many students get caught up with the hustle and bustle of graduating from high school and being told that they need to hurry up and find a college so that they can continue their education that they don't take the time to seriously consider their choices. This can make the whole experience more of an ordeal and considerably less fun and exciting. Take your time, weigh your options, and even talk to people that personally know the school you are looking at and I guarentee it will be much more enjoyable. I would also reccomend that if you are debating between colleges and you can't really decide just go with the one that is your first instinct. Today transferring between colleges and carrying over your credits is a process that is, while not easy, fairly straightforward. If you go into a college and decide it isn't where you want to be, simply finish the semester and transfer over to another college. Many students at SPSU use this technique to boost themselves into Georgia Tech.

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

I believe that, while not terrible, the parking and alot of areas just aren't designed for the in-flux of students. But they are quickly working to build and expand to accomodate.

It has a unique blend of disciplines with emphasis on career after undergraduate school.

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

The best thing parents and their soon to be prospective students can do is physically visit the schools they are considering investing in. It will make a world of difference to physically go there and feel out how the student would feel in that environment and possibly talk to first hand sources i.e. students & faculty. It is also good for investigating the resources that would be available to the student at that location so as to properly weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the competing offers. It will help the student determine what would be the most efficient living arrangement for that school which is probably, from my experience, the most key influential factor in how the students attitude will mold itself concerning his or her academics. A nice productive, clean, lively and friendly, not dead & dull, atmosphere tends to give the proper motivation for the student to grow and continue growing as opposed to partying too much, not having any fun at all, or becoming completly unmotivated to their school work. The family should also check to make sure that the university has diverse oppourtunities to expose their child to career paths, culture, & volunteer services to broaden horizons.

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

The only advice that I can give to parent and students about finding the right school is to keep your options open and when you do get ready to choose a school pick the school that not only sets you up best for the rest of your career but the one that will give you the most practical or useful education of your money. As far as making the most of your college experience, you have to know that no matter how many hours you are taking or how hard your workload is you can still have an awesome time at school. All of the partying and things like that are an accessory to this fact. The amount of fun that you have depends on you and how you choose to spend you time and energy

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

The worst thing about my school would probably be the administrative staff, since they tend to run things inefficiently which ends up being a headache for many of the students.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating things about my school would have to be the fact that on the weekends there is nothing to do due to the fact that it is a small mostly local school and most people tend to go home over the weekends.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

This school is best known for its programs of study (i.e Architecture and Engineering).

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

Always give yourself more than one option. Everyone has that "Dream College" they want to atend but that school may not be what's right for you. Alway keep an open mind and schedule college tours so you can personally get a feel for a school's atmosphere.
