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

I would have to stop myself in the hall and tell myself, "Self, college, the thing people refer to as post-secondary education, is waiting for you. I'm telling you now that you must make the most of every moment. When you find yourself with nothing to do and more free time than you know what to do with, use it to study. And when you've studied to your heart's content, step outside your dorm and make a friend. Create relationships with others so that you never have time to feel "alone". Attend as many lectures as you can, as they can only make you smarter and don't just join clubs, create them too. But don't ever forget how you got to college, how you graduated high school, or how you started preschool so you could go to elementary school and eventually middleschool. Be sure to call your mom when you're away and tell her that you love her with your big heart and that you've sent an air-kiss same day mail, that it should arrive in the evening. She would love this as she loves you. Start something big."

After seeing all "top notch university's" my mind completely changed after St.Thomas University's open house. Just driving in one feels like if campus was in someworld else, due to it's landscape, diversity and buildings. Yes,STU may be a small campus but one thing is forsure they are defently BIG at heart. Unlike others, STU interest was not what benefited them, instead me. When they say they are developing leaders for life, they mean it. St. Thomas is not just a university, it's a family filled with diversity!

SELF: DO NOT make a decision based on others experiences, go out and experience your own. Only because 50% of your peers and classmates all agree on the University of Florida being the best University in Florida, doesn?t quite mean you will. Common mistakes such as SCHOLARSHIPS are made by most us, therefore avoid any. What one should do is instead of going scholarship crazy look into the universities in which you are interested in and see what they offer in terms of $$$.Scholarships that pertain to your major, should be strictly looked into. Talk to current students in the university?s you liked, as well as professors who teach some of the courses in which pertain to ones major, and even the undergraduates who are currently taking the courses. Make sure you have a plan, if you?re lost during you?re transition from high school to college, you will still be lost once you get there. And please do not freak out if first College grade exams aren?t all that joyful, it happens to almost all of us!

St.Thomas University is somewhat small with a 1-4 ratio between student-teacher relationship. Classes are very hands-on and a relationship between the student and proffessor can be built easily.

Dear Cameron Philip of 2007, College is a very independent learning environment that allows you to discover yourself and focus on your future goals in life. Remember in your senior year there was always someone behind you making sure your work was completed, made it to class on time, and assisted you with any matter, well college is significantly different. College is an exciting place where you experience a vast majority of life lessons, people of different backgrounds, and cultures. Cameron, as a college student you?re an independent student trying to be successful in life through a higher learning program. There are many unplanned obstacles that come about when you least expect them, but the best way to handle such situations is with patience, faith, and self-control. Academic dishonesty is not like what it was in high school. There are major consequences for plagiarism and cheating, which can affect you in the present and in the future. In conclusion, the last words of advice would be to stay focused, determined to succeed, be thankful for your blessings, and never forget those who helped paved the road for your success.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who shouldn't attend this school would be a person who prefers a big campus, not friendly, or cant get along with people of different racial backgrounds and beliefs. A person who isn't able to take their education serious and waste their parents money just because they are wealthy, because are many who wisht they could attend college but can't due to financial issues.

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

Get a job and save as much money as you can for your education. Hone your studying skills and apply for scholarships and grants. Do as much as you can, as quickly as you can, to get through school, and apply yourself to research. Learn the art of grant-writing! Try to enjoy your senior year, but avoid spending money on frivolity, and keep your goals in sight.

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

Perhaps the worst thing about my school, or schools in general, is the evergrowing expense of tuition. The problem is not related to the quality of the scholarly experience ; surely, a good education is invaluable. However, the ability of students and/or their families to pay for it is rapidly diminishing. In the face of our shrinking economy, with its job-losses, dead property values, and the everpresent disproportion of wealth in the world, it is getting more and more difficult for those seeking academic achievement and career promotion to afford the price of an education.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person who shouldn't attend this school is the one who does not wish to learn about multicultural and ethnic diversity; a person with no desire to explore and/or challenge his or her spiritual beliefs should stay away. The kind of person who does not believe in striving, learning, and working intently at gaining an education should not attend this school. Further, the person who picks the prestige of a large 'name' university over a small, close-knit network of scholars, educators, and clergy, and who hates volunteerism in his/her own community shouldn't apply.

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

Hey buddy. Stop goofing around. Pay attention. You need to buckle down and pay attention to your studies. Start thinking about what you like and don't like. Don't panic. You don't need to decide right this minute what you want to do with the rest of your life. But do get ready to go to college. You don't need to decide on a major the minute your start college. Take different classes. You'll know whether you're interested in particular field or not. Continue with school after graduation. Do not take time off. Yes, you're making a few bucks now at that job you have. That's OK for now. But as you get older, it won't be enough to sustain yourself. Don't be fooled. You're not living in the real world yet. You're not paying rent, groceries, car insurance, light bill, phone bill, cable, bill, car reparis. etc. You need to think of these things. You won't be living with Mom forever.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The person who is determined to learn and prosper should attend this school. Even if you don't know what you want to do with your life, come to this school. You will receive a well rounded education. You will be exposed to new and exciting courses of studies. You will discover things you never imagined existed. If you are unsure about college at all, come to this school. Here you will find encouragement and guidance and general help with your decision making.

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

Often teachers and students of the latin background, or spanish speaking countries, do not find it rude to speak spanish in front of others who are apparent english-only speakers.

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

Take the time to explore all public universities. The costs are less, and the education received is based upon a national standard. Private colleges are misleading, although promises can be made of a higher education standard, this is not always true. Public institutions also provide more exposure to activities centered around the student at all times, with limitless possibilities.

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

That I could have applied to a Florida State University instead, and it would have cost me less money to attend since I am paying for it on my own with loans.

Describe the students at your school.

Some of my classmates are just too comfortable with a C and a low GPA average not realizing that out there, is the real world competition exist. But there are others that are very smart and talented in their field.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I guess is because is one of the few Catholic Universities in the area.

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

I would recommend a school where students take their work seriously. I would recommend a school with a student life because one must take at least an hour break from school and relax to clear the mind. I would recommend a school where people compete so that when one graduates, it is easier to deal with the real world.
