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

I would tell them to visit every college and look over the likes and dislikes of every college. i would advise the parents to let the final decision to the student and to always support the student no matter what.

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

In general, finding the right college is like a lot of things in life. You can find what you're looking for, and you will. For example, if I went to any college looking for parties, I could find them. If I looked at any college for friends, I'd find them. One must decide what they want out of a college before they begin. Attitude is almost everything. When you start college, assume to spend all of your time studying, then when you have extra time it's especially exciting. Set boundaries for yourself and seek balance. Do your best in all you so you can be proud for all your hard work.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Since this is an Adventist university, we hold Christian values. Students should remember that they will receive a Christian education and that is an integral part of the curriculum. Students that are strongly opposed to Christian values may disagree with some rules that are required. In general though, SWAU is recommended to any student looking for a quality Christian education.

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

The advice I would give a parent or a student about finding the right college is to first pray about it. Leave it in Gods and do research on the different options you have. Set up visit times to check out the different campuses and the opportunities they have for you. Narrow it down. Don't limit yourself to one college do the paperwork for your several options. God will close the door for some and open it for others. Ultimately God will put you where he wants you and you need to be, and will work it all out. To make the best of your college experience make lots of friends, be open minded give your classes the most you have, work hard, and never ever let go of God's hand. Know that whatever happens he'll be by your side, waiting for you.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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

Really look for what you want. Don't go to a univeristy just based on one thing. There are many factors that influence how you will perform, so take them all into consideration. Also, the size of a university makes a big difference in the type of social life you plan on having so take that into consideration also.

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

Put friends, money, and practicality aside and chase your dream. Don't let your logic stand in the way of finding something you truly want to do for the rest of your life. The money you spend in college is an investment towards happiness, not contentment. A practical degree will not bring you happiness, but doing what you love will. The time and funds put toward your degree will forever haunt you if you do not choose to spend them on something you love. Do not be afaid to chase your dreams.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about the school is the geniuine care for success demonstrated by the faculty and staff. They provide an environment where students feel like they are being cared for.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person hoping to excel in the arts. There is no development at this school for art.

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

It all comes down to where you enjoy yourself while you learn new things. And that means that there are almost certainly multiple good options, So don't sweat the decision - if you hate it, you can transfer, if you find a better oppurtunity later, you can take it.

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

It seems there is no prestige attached to this school, or its degree, unless your an adventist, and even then it's nothing special.

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

For those people looking for the right college I would tell them to see what majors they offer and see if you would have to transfer schools to complete your major. It is hard to start at one school and move on to another one after you have a life started at another one. Also look at the activities that they offer on campus. Do any of them suit you? Also do not be afraid to make friends. Friends are what makes the college experience so much more fun!

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

I think that I knew enough about this school when I started attending. I did a lot of research and talking to tons of people at the school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think that all people would be welcome here and that the oly reason that you would not want to come to this school is if you were not intrested in religion at all since this is an Adventist school.

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

Find a college that will respect your beliefs and that would support you in whatever ways necessary. Student-teacher interaction is very hard to come by when you go to big colleges that accepts thousands and thousands of students. Also college experience should be a fun experience but there is limits to what fun is. Drinking, sex, and drugs should not be part of your college experience. Most of all just enjoy being in college and making friends that will help you become a better person.

What's unique about your campus?

This school is a very conservative school that really focuses on students. The teacher and student interaction in here is great unlike many big schools. I have always appreciated that they are also very religious and respect students culture and beliefs. The school is located in a small town which also makes it a quiet place where learning is really great.
