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.
