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

Finding the right college can be a difficult process but go on a lot of college visits until it just feels right that you are there. Be sure they have a variety of programs you are intrested in case you switch your major so you don't have to switch schools. Also, makes ure they have a variety of activites to get inolved in. Once you find the right school and start attending there be sure to get involved. In the dorms make sure to get to know your neighbors, you will always have somebody to hang out with at night. Get involved in intramurals, goverment, student activites, and religious groups. By staying involved and focusing on getting to know people the transition from home to college is an easier process. Also it helps you enjoy the school much more, the college experience is what you make it.

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

Make sure you visit the college campus. Talk to students attending the college, and always go with ur gut feeling for a school. It helps a lot, even if you don't know why you want to go to a school do it anyway, it will be your best decision ever.

What's unique about your campus?

I like that the professors are easily accessible, and the small community of people that can be found to hang out with that respect you for you.

Parents, let go of your children, they can handle themselves. Kids, be yourself, have some fun and let loose. Boozin and boobzin isnt what school is all about. Get a good group of friends and college will be a blast. Parents, seriously, when your kids come back home, dont treat them like children, they're adults now. LET THEM BE! And everything will just be fine. Trust your kids, kids trust your parents.

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

Choosing the right college is crucial to you son's or daughters experiences in college. Make sure that they will stay active on the campus and encourage them to take part in as many activities as they have time for. School isn't all about homework and exams, but also focus on the happiness of them. Make sure they are completely satisfied with the school before committing to it.

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

The best advice that I can give to parents is be there for your children. College is a difficult time for them and it makes things a whole lot easier to survive when you know that you can count on your family.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is looking for friendly and personable staff, small class sizes, and an all around good experience.

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

First, find a college with a general atmosphere that fits you well. Look at the students, as well as the professors views/attitudes. Second, when you do find a college that fits, do not go home for at least a month. You will never really feel like you're in college if you go home every weekend. Third, get involved! Get into clubs, campus activities, anything - just get involved as soon as you get to college. It's a great way to make friends and jump into the college life. As far as classes go, do not procrastinate. It will eventually get you in trouble. Look at it this way, you might as well learn good habits before you're kicked into the "real world". Lastly, I would suggest staying away from the party scene. It may seem fun for awhile, but it will eventually negatively affect every part of your life. Besides, you'll want to remember your college years for the rest of your life!

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

As much as the Student Activities Committiee tries, most people aren't interested in campus activities - unless they live on campus already. It's hard to get those who live off camus to really do anything on camus except class. More often than not drinking/partying is the preferred past time.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who enjoys smaller towns, with small/intimate class sizes and a general college atmosphere.
