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

The advice that I would give parents is to not interfere with the college process and to let their children decide where they want to go.

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

More about the first year program. I didn't know much about it, since I didn't get a lot of information about it.

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

I would tell the parent/students to visit as many schools as you want. Try and set up a tour of the school and try to spend a night at the school so you can get a good feel for it. Make sure the campus is in a good location. I believe that most people when they step onto a campus will know whether or not they will like the school. Also make sure you get involved with as many activities as possible on campus to socialize with the student body.

Small campus in small town gives you a college town. Lots of things to do on campus

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are preppy environmentally concious people who say they care about the environment and world issues but rarely do anything about it if it were to involve real effort or work on their part.

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

I would tell them to spend an overnight at the school, and see if you can get a good feeling for what the school is like on weekends. You don't think it will be that important now but it will be once you're stuck there. Also, take the time to meet professors because it will give you a good feel for what kind of teachers the school employs.

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

I wish I had known what little there is to do on weekends if you don't want to drink all weekend long. There isn't much going on besides parties and if you want to do other things you usually have to make it happen yourself. The school also makes a lot of promised it doesn't keep. Don't buy what they tell you. You become a number here very quickly and they don't really care that much. Some professors are amazing and others suck so bad.

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

Pay attention to the location of the school and how far away it is from your home. My home is only a little under two hours away from my school, but that is far enough that I have my own life here at school (my family rarely visits), yet going home for breaks is convenient. I can just drive my car, and I don't have to worry about traveling or the amount of luggage or anything. Also, definitely visit the campus. All schools look pretty in the brochures, but when you actually visit the school you get a feel for its nuances and for the social atmosphere. My chosen school was very open with the tours and such, and other schools i have toured made it seem like I was bothering them when i asked to see certain buildings or dorms. The school should WANT to show you their buildings and facilities. If they don't, then ask yourself, "What are they trying to hide?". If you can do an overnight stay with a student, definitely do it. You learn so much more about the school when you spend time with actual students, not just tour guides.

What's unique about your campus?

Financial aid. 50,000 dollar a year tuition, but i pay about only 9,000 dollars in student loans each year.

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

The best advice I could give someone about finding the right college is to go to a college that fits you. It should be the size you want in a community you have hobbies to partake in. Class size and the feeling you get on a visit will tell you a lot about how it will be attending there. Its a good idea to talk to some of the kids that go there and get their insight on what happens on campus before you decide if its the college for you. And also check out the menu at the dining hall, if its stuff you could see yourself eating thats good, but if you dont like it, youll still be stuck with it for 4 years once you are there. Go to college for you, not your family. Youll be the one spending 4 years of your life there.

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

the variety of housing options. there are a lot of dorms to live in and townhouses for seniors but not a lot of choices in themed housing which people like to take part in

St. Lawrence is much smaller than the other schools I considered

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

To find the right college, you really need to visit the largest variety of campuses possible. You need to feel the atmosphere of both large and small schools, public and private, before you can make the right choice. Once you're there, it's important to get involved with everything you can think of/have time for. Join a club, try out for a team, even get an on-campus job; all these opportunities will allow you to meet new and interesting people.

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

SLU is a diverse school with various opportunities and a close community that is open to all views and has a strong value in academics.

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

Students should try to be as involved with the campus community as possible without letting it interfere with academic responsibilities-especially the free events since your tuition has an involvement with it. Try to participate in a sport, especially intramurals or a theatrical showcase because the friends you make there are those that'll stick by your side when you truly need it. When it comes to finding the right school, look for one that'll have the class size that'll suit you, along with the geography and location of the campus. If you like small communities, check out the campus to make sure it's fitting. If you dislike winter and snow, try not attending a school in the snow. Make sure the school offers what you need academically then worry about location, weather and extrecurriculars because that's why you are going to school, the fun stuff is simply a bonus, but a campus that has activities will help you destress as well as make frienships that'll last a lifetime!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those who are closed minded and not wanting to succede.

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

St. Lawernce or SLU as we call it, is an amazing place. There are not that many students here, becasuse we are a small liberal arts school, but what you gain are really great solid relationships. You get the chance to know people which is great. It's very cold in the North Country but you can not even tell because people are so kind and welcoming. The advice I would give to parents and students looking at schools, would be that students should really visit all the schools that they are considering. You never know until you get there. Don't let the price of a school dictate if you apply or not. Just believe in your choice and there is a way.
