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

At SWU, almost everyone knows who you are. But beyind that, they care about your academic, social and spiritual growth. Here, we aren't just a student body or faculty an staff, we're a community.

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

My advice to parents and students: Start early, have lots of options, and VISIT the campuses. One should really start looking at colleges the summer before the senior year high school. Make your campus visits in the fall, since that's when most colleges are busiest, and apply early. Most scholarship deadines are in February, and financial aid is awarded as early as March. As for finding the right school for you or your kid, my best advice is to look at aspects of schools like size, proximity to mom and dad, etc. And remember, there could be more than one school that's right for you. To make the most of your college experience- make college as different from high school as possible. If you stay close to home, LIVE ON CAMPUS!! So many students miss out on the college life after classes by commuting from home. To me, this a shame because they miss out on the experrience of living with people from all walks of life, and learning to adapt to that. Again, start the search early, keep your options open, and visit often. Once you get there, really commit. Get involved, stay on campus, and enjoy!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are looking for a cold, impersonal school with apathetic professors and thousands distant peers, then SWU is NOT for you. The classes are small, and faculty are willing to go above and beyond to help you succeed. The students are among some of the most kind and caring people you will ever meet.

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

Finding the right college is all about finding an extension of yourself. You want these next four years, or maybe more, to be the most exciting time of your life. Not only will you be training for a career but also you will learn how to grow up and mature and become the person you where made to be. College allows you to experience new people and cultures, so get out there and go for it! Make college work for you, and to do that, just choose the one that best fits your lifestyle, beliefs and values.

What's unique about your campus?

It is small and a very loving community. Friends for life are made here and your spiritual life will grow as well.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is very expensive and since it is small it is hard sometimes to get a specific major.

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

Visit your campus before making the decision. Make sure that the school's rules are rules you can follow and if you can come up with more than 5 things you don't like about the school befoer you even attend it... don't go there. That list will only get bigger once you're there. Understand though that you won't find a college that is "you" such a neat part of college is that that is a place where you can find out who "you" are.

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

We are a Christian school and thats great. My distaste comes when we have athletes who were lewered into our school with scholarships who along with others who are here for financial reasons and they don't feel the same way tha Christians do. I feel that our school pushes Christianity on to those people without caring if it is how they want to be treated.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who drinks should not consider SWU. Drinking is against school policy and more people get kicked out for that than anything else. I don't think this is the school for someone who is not Chritian either, becasue unfortunately as the school tells so many about the love of Christ, it is not accepting of other faiths at all.

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

We are a Christian university, but are not limited to just Religion and Ministry majors. There are several majors varying from education and business. The difference is here you are able to see how to apply your Christianity into your future career, and see how to glorify God in everything you do.

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

Your process needs in choosing a college needs to start early. The earlier you start, the slower the process will be and that way you are not completely stressed 2 months before you graduate high school. In deciding where to go, I would strongly encourage to visit each campus of the colleges you apply to. Because the program may sound awesome, but as for your social life, it may not click at all. And when you do decide what college to go to, in order to get the best experience, I would encourage you to get out there and make friends! The friends you make at college last a lifetime. I know that because I have already been in one wedding, and will be in another in Jan. 2009. Get involved in the school's activities and have fun! These 4 or so years will help you define or rediscover who you really are.

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

To find the right college for you, it is vital that you find out all the right ingredients that you need that make up the perfect college for you. To find this out, you need to just think of what kind of person you are. Do you like alot of extra-cirriculars? Do you like large classes or small classes? Do you like cities or small towns? And the most important-how studious are you (because if you are not focused on getting the grades and passing the classes, then college is not for you)? These are just some of the questions that you would need to ask yourself. Also, write down all the answers on a sheet of paper. Many put so much emphasis on what the college ranking is, but in reality, the rankings do not really matter all that much. What matters most is for you to be submerged in an environment that you will excel in. What really matters is getting that degree.

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

I wish that I had known that even though you feel free and away from home, you aren't. You must make the decision every day to get your job done no matter what.
