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

The best advice I have is to start with a college that your interested in and research it. A key thing to being happy at the college of your choice is to make sure it is a good fit for yourself. Some questions to ask are ; is the location right? is this college the right size? In order to make the most of your college experience, my best advice is to become involved. There are a number of clubs, organizations, fraternities, events, gatherings, and any other social event you could think of that occur at colleges. In order to be happy in college you have to have friends. I have found, through my 3 years of college , most of the people I have met are through campus related events. The college I am at is not the biggest and not the best located, but I have had a great time at this college because of friends. I will never forget some of the things I've experienced or people I've met through campus events.

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

The worse thing about the school is the construction going on in and around the school. The remodeling is a good thing, but at the same time they are working during class which makes it hard to concentrate.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Somebody who is not going to put forth the effort it requires to do well in this school. This school has a good reputation of being a good academic school, so a person not willing to do the work would not do well here.

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

The most important things to look for when finding the right college is how one will pay for school and how much tuition costs will be. Also it is important to know if the student wants to be in a rural or big city setting. It is also important to know what fields of study are available at the school that the student might be interested in. It is also important to know about the living conditions the student might be living in and what the options are for living accomodations.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend this school is someone who likes the rural setting and small town experience. Someone who is ready to be accountable to their teachers and fellow students. Someone who is ready to learn and eager to be a part of the college experience.

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

I brag about how good my academic advisor is and how she has helped me through every step of my educational program and she helped me to get the classes i needed to be able to graduate on time. Also I would brag about the smaller classes and the ease of most courses that I have taken at this school.

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

first off sign up for every scholarship possible; you can never have to much aid. Next find the university that fits your preferences; if you want to get far away then do it, or if you want to stay close to home do it. Apply to all colleges that interest you. Attend the orientations it is a great way to meet new people and make friends in a new place. Do your school work throughout the day instead of puttin it off until that night, so you can have time for activities and social life. The field you wish to go into upon graduating college should also be a deciding factor in the college you attend; choose one that is strong in that area.

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

My advice is to find a college that is right for the student, a college that meets academic, size, financial criteria. The college has too have the right type of degree program for the student. The college should also have extracirricular activies, clubs, or sports that the student is interested in. The college should have on-campus housing if that is where the student would like to live. Also having a college be in a good location, close to shopping areas and restaurants is one of the most important things for students who are out on their own for the first time and having things to do other than school activities and homework is important too.

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

My advice would be to apply and tutor all the colleges you are interested in, and get as much as info about each of them as you can. Don't just go to the school where your best friends from high school went, venture out and make new friends because college friends will last a lifetime. Ask lots of questions about the colleges you are looking at, no question is inappropriate. As for making the most of your college experience; get involved! Join intermural sports, clubs, campus organizations, etc. Its a great to meet people with similar interests and make great friends. Find a balance between your acedemics and social life. Both are important. You can't have a great college experience if you never socialize but you also won't have one if you never study or succeed in class. Go to class, skipping class is the worest way to ruin your grades! Don't stress out, but study hard and do well on tests early in the year so when finals roll around your grade will be secured.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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

I would say that students should go to a school that for sure offers the program they want to get into. One that if they are an athlete, has a competitive team. I have really enjoyed my time here at SWOSU, I really like the people and the professors, I think that is very important, you want to feel welcome and not out of place. I think that your financial situation needs to be considered, because you can not consintrate on school if your stressed about money. Other than I would just say to make sure it is a place where you can have fun, be yourself, and gain a lot of experiences, because that is a big part of college too.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

"The Focus Is You" SWOSU uses that slogan and it gets annoying as its not always true. The dean tends to act more friendly than she really is.

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

The class sizes are small and the majority of the teachers get to know their students.

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

Go on a tour, try to meet with a teacher and ask random students walking around the advantages and disadvantages of coming to their school. The students are honest, but get many people because some hate it and some love it, while others are neutral. Try to get multiples of each before deciding. Find out if the city around it has things to do, and what the school offers. The school is not the only important thing, its the teachers and your surroundings that make it a good or bad place to learn.

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

SWOSU has great academics, a wonderful atmosphere, and typically friendly people, I would encourage any high school students to attend this university.

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

First of all, I believe that students should not limit themselves to looking at only one school. There is nothing wrong with exploring other options, you never know the opportunities that looking around could provide. There are many schools that can make a student happy, but a person needs to settle on a place that they feel most comfortable and feel that they can achieve their best academic success. If a prospectant student likes to be involved in on-campus activities and community projects, the student should look around campus and ask other students what types of activities there are and see what they could become involved in. When new students get to their school they just need to be themselves and nothing else. There will be others who will like them for who the are, and with those people a student will have no problem in making many memories and friendships that will last them the rest of their lives.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The meal plan here on campus has a time slot where you can only use one meal per alotted time. By the end of the week I would have meals left over that I could not use up, because I had already used one meal during that time, so I simply ended up losing that money. It's completely unfair, but they have had discussions looking for changes to the meal plans, and they are talking about changing it.

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

Visit the college and talk to some of the professors that teach in your major and/or minor. If you don't know what you want to do, talk to all the areas that sound interesting. Don't be afraid to say you don't know what you want to do, everyone doubts it at some point and most people change. Look around the campus and be sure it isn't too big or too small. Also, try to find returning students and ask them the best and worst things on campus to them. Maybe they will give you tips on the dorms, teachers, and activities that they enjoy as well.

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

Religion. They are very pushy and won't take no for an answer. They want to know what you believe and why. Like one of my teachers was joking about when he had me introduce myself. "What's your name? Where are you from? What's your major? Where do you go to church?" It's not right and not their business.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The small town. There isn't much here. Shopping is limited to Walmart and antiques, the movie theatre needs to be redone, and the bowling alley has 6 lanes. Also, the food prices. Last I checked a box of Velveeta and shells was not $4.25.
