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

Take college one day at a time. There will be days and maybe even a whole week where you do not think you can make it, but believe me you will survive to see the next day. Also, do not worry about picking a major right away, and stressing yourself out trying to figure out what you want to do for the rest of your life. You will find the right major and love it. Being away from your family and taking up more responsibilities is part of the process of growing up- it is not as bad as you think, it is actually rather nice to be on your own. Above all do not forget that college is not just about school work, it is also about the experience. The experience of meeting new people, new cultures, new activities, and along the way finding out who you truely are and want to be.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Finding a parking spot can sometimes be difficult. Also, registrating for classes on-line is very frustrating. Everyone is trying to get on-line at the same time which causes the system to have errors and sometimes it takes a long time to get your classes.

Do not wait until the last minute to get your work done, college is totally different from high school. The professors do not care if you come or not rather than in high school you get in trouble when you decide to play hookie in the mornings. Focus and make the books and your study habits your best friend!!

What's unique about your campus?

The environment and the friendly people. Everyone is easy to get along with and the academics are amazing.

My advise to you going into college is dont get involved your first semester, but keep your eyes open at organizations and its members to see whinch ones you would like to take part. Go out and have fun but make sure you stay close to God, and dont let your grades in the process. Get an agenda and write all your teachers office hours in them and numbers with emails and go to all of your teachers offices. And make sure you netwoek fro day one by the way you carry yourself!

I would go back and tell myself to start making the decision as to what school I really wanted to go to. Don't stress your self out so much because it is not worth it and it is not going to get you any where. Take your classes very seriously and study hard. Don't do all of the playing around and dont do things because your friends are doing it. Follow your dreams to becoming what ever it is in life that you really set your heart to do. When it comes to picking a college, go take a look at it and see if that is the kind of environment you can see your self in. If that is somewhere that you can see your self being the rest of your college life then go for it and look at all of the social events that take place on that campus.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing I really like about my school is that it the campus and classes are not too big, but not too small. I also like the people here on the campus. They make you feel comfortable while you are here. It is your home away from home. The people that live in this community are very friendly.

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

The things that I tell my friends are that the campus and the people here are really nice. I feel really comfortable being here. Everything in this community is very convienent for all students.

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

The day i turned 16 i got a job, my freshmen year. i worked through high school doing 40 hours or so a week. The more i worked the more i saved. I bought a car and a house when i was 17 and moved out of my parents when i was 18. In doing so i learned how to take care of myself and balence my life around school, work, and friends. I got my life together when i was young and no matter what happeneds to me i know i did the best i could have and would only tell myself one thing. "no matter what happeneds keep up the good work".

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

well, its only my first year here and honestly the only thing i didn't like was not knowing anybody here. meeting new people has changed that for me and i love this place.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

i would have to say finding housing is entirely to frustrating.

The close-knit community of SFA created a unique sense of becoming a part of a long-lasting family when I became a new student. Students, faculty, staff, and community members go above and beyond to make students feel welcome. Becasue Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas, students here get to experience a unique culture of rich history and small town pride. I believe SFA is a university that provides students to experience a secondary education in an environment that is unparalleled.

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

The primary advice that i would give to students about finding the "right college" would be that they "embrace discovery". When students are seeking to find the "right college" it is important that they sincerely embrace the task of discovering new cultures and belief systems. Students can accomplish this by visiting both prospective colleges and colleges that they may not have a strong interest in. By doing this, students are able to discover each respective college while, becoming acutely aware of themselves and what they are truly looking for in a college setting. Regarding the college experience, I would encourage students with one small phrase "live richly." In order to make the most of the college experience it is important that students truly take advantage of all that the college experience has to offer. By becoming involved on campus and in the community, students afford themselves the opportunity to experience a plethora of potentially life changing events. By opting to "live richly" in college, a student can cultivate her character and serve her society.My final advice to students is this: "Carry these principles past your college experience; in all things seek to embrace discovery and to live richly."

My school is a place people come to succeed, but those who dont come to succeed drop out and flunk out quick.

Applying for college is a stressfull process, but once the process is starts, life is much easier. Do not delay in apllying - get it over with as soon as possible. Thats the first bit of important advice. Secondly, no matter where someone may be attending, its best to go in with an intellectual attitude . If someone goes into college with an attitude that isnt ready to learn, they will fail. Dramatically. When looking for a college to attend, understand that most Universities are going gto have incredible professors - thats why they are Universities. You may not be going to the best school in the state, but your still going to have professors that are incredible. While there, find friends that make sense to you. People will find friends when they joing organizations, so dont just sit in the dorm all day doing nothing. Go out and have fun, theres more to a University than studying!
