The teachers spend time with the students outside of the classroom. Everyone knows pretty much everyone.

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

It's important to find the school that fits your needs. Some people like the idea of a large school and some like the idea of a small school. Check up on the college's history and academic standing. Look at the surrounding location of the school. Make time for social experiences but do not let them take priority over your academics. Keep in touch with your family while away at school, but do not go home every weekend. The longer you are there, the sooner you will adjust to the new environment.

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

To make the most of your college experience, you should always contact actual students attending the university because they might be more truthful than the faculty/staff. Another idea would be getting the school to let you stay for a weekend just to see if you would be comfortable with that environment. It's hard to figure a place out just by passing through it on foot or by car. If you can stay a weekend and you feel it's a good learning environment and you are comfortable, then try it. Durring the semester if you begin to feel uncomfortable you might want to stay off campus or transfer. Also, sitting in on some classes before you enroll to see how professors teach their course will help as well. I feel that a professor can either make you or break you. I learned that the hard way. Definitely find the college that you are most interested in and ask questions to students and find out important facts about the daily life and weekend life on campus.

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

To start there is a lot of partying on the weekends and the secince departments are not academically strong. We have some very good professors and some not so good ones. I wish St. Andrews could be a better place and not have accreditation problems. I also wish they did not have financial problems.

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

The campus is beautiful with the green grass and trees. There is also a lake that I enjoy passing on my way to class.

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

Please make sure that you investigate the college before you decide. Sit in on a class, and see what the professors are like in real classes. It is different when you come for open houses and things like that. Also, investigate many different college settings. There is something right for everyone, and it may not be the first colege you look at, but it is out there.

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

I wish I would have known how awesome all the people were. It is a really great atmosphere, and everyone is incredibly friendly. I also wish I would have known that the classes were so student focused instead of large conversational group.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There isnt really anything frustrating about the school other than the buildings desperately need renovation.

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

I would say always research the school and make sure you make a visit if possible. Visiting a school allows you to really get a good look into what that school is about and has to offer socially, academically, athletically, and culturally.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wants a small enviornment with a lot of focus on school.

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

I think when students and parents are looking at colleges you have to take many things into consideration. You have to look for the school thats going to fit your persoanl, educatinal and career goals. I think a college tour is key. You can look around on campus and see how things look. When your doing this i think its important for the student to ask a current college student about campus life. Do it when the parents arent around and get the college student to just be straight up with you about everything from the professors, to the partys on the weekend.

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

I wish i had of know what the weekends were really like and how they are what people talk about monday morning. Its crazy here sometimes, but most people make sure they have their homework done before they go out. Security trys to bust people on underage drinking, but they dont do a very good job. As long as your not crazy drunk and bringing attention to yourself, your most likely not going to get caught.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think anyone who doesnt like being really involved in class discussions shouldnt come or someone who really hates drinking.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are friendly, funny, nice, hard working, and all around great people that are extremely focused on their goals and not there just to party.

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

My advice would be to pick a school you think is best for you. Also, don't be scared to try new things, and meet different people. Also, make sure you are prepared to pay for college or will have ways to pay for college. Never wait last minute and always keep contact with the faculty. Don't be afriad to have fun either, let loose and still keep your values. Don't be afraid to make friends. Just go out there to live, learn, and experience different things.

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

I tell them how beautiful my school is, and how the people, classes, and faculty are amazing and helpful. All of my friends know how much I love my school. I tell my friends back home about the grear classes I get to take, and that I am chanellged everyday in each of my classes and only in a good way. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
