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

When a student first walks onto a new campus, there is often an initial gut feeling. My best advice is to follow that feeling. Of course, there are many different criteria to determine which schools may best suit the student, but it is more likely that a student will succeed if they are comfortable with their environment. This feeling can include positives and negatives about the scenery, the current students, the way they are treated while visiting, along with many many others. Make a list of criteria the student will be looking for and document or take notes on these while visiting, not after to keep the information as accurate as possible. Above all, make sure that this new campus can be a comfortable home for the next two, four or even more years.

What's unique about your campus?

Healthy social environment with a strong pull toward academic excellence.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The town of Nacogdoches is often referred to Nac-a-no-where because it is literally that. To students coming from larger cities, especially, it is easy to become stir crazy.

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

Its different for everyone you can't choose what college you want your child to go to. You have to let them be of their own mind and body. Tour all different types of campuses all of different sizes to see what you would like. Small colleges tend to have less people and you won't get lost in the crowd. Make sure you get the most out of the college that you attend, go to different functions, but also use the library and tutoring services even if you don't like them. College is all about finding out who you are away from your parents, and being independent. Make the right decisions and you will have the best time.

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

I wish i had learned to study in high school. It would have made college so much easier.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person can attend SFA. We accept anyone. It doesn't matter what your race or religion we offer many programs that fit into your life. We have different organizatons that involve everyone so there is no reason why anyone should not be envolved in school.

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

Make sure that the college you want to go to is the right size, the right distance from home, and has the best of resources. Talk to professors, counselors, and other staff. Also find students and talk to them about the campus, classes, and social life of students.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The red mud gets everywhere, and it gets cold in the winter.

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

I would advise the parents and students to look for a school that will better the student's education at a reasonable cost. I also think that while touring a school, they should pay attention to security posts, turoring opportunities, and the overall cleanliness of the campus. It is also important for parents and students to notice the layout of a school to determine how far things are from each other which impacts time management. Also, it is important to recognize whether the community and school work together when it comes to interning, social activities, or volunteer work. Good Luck!

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

I wish I would've been a little bit more organized with time, and learned how to manage my time better. I think it's mostly due to being alone for the first time, and not having someone tell me when to do things and when not to do things.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I believe any type of person can attend this school. SFA is very diverse! The school president and faculty are very open to listening to student's ideas and opinions. I think that anyone thinking about coming to SFA should expect classes no bigger than 100, a beautiful environment, freedom, and a variety of activities & food (on and off campus). He/She should also expect a small town of a little over 27, 000 (not including the students), historical monuments, and some small/dark country roads. If a person can't handle these things, they shouldn't attend SFA.

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

Visit the schools, once you have been accepted, selecte your top two. Between those two visit them, just walk around on a week day, see how helpful they are at getting you to go to school there, because that will probably be the best you will be treated, during your stay there

What's unique about your campus?

Small Town feel, frendly community, and conviently designed campus

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

Check into the community and surroundings of the university, because the local community will have a significant impact on the students ability to adjust to thier new environment. As far as making the most of the college experience, dont be afraid to try out different opportunities as they are set in your path. Not everything is set in stone, and college is a great time for first time experiences. Anywhere from getting involved with a sorority/fraternity to going to campus housing activities is a great way to make new friends and keep you feeling connected to the university as well as your studies!

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

The lack of campus/city wide transportation for students leaves most feeling disconected from everything

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

Our campus is one of the most beautiful campuses in texas! The facilities and opportunities are fantastic!

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

Intense barrage of social life combined with the freedom to do as you wish gives the campus an air of social confusion, that takes precedent over all else at times.

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

To go ahead and weigh the amount of freedom that your child has been given, to the social voracity of the campus in which you will be putting your children. If you have not properly prepared them, they can very well be swept away in a torrent of alcohol and the opposite sex; leaving their studies to drown in a sea of confusion. Take great pains to work out financial aid, housing, and everything else BEFORE you get to campus, it will make life easier on you. Don't buy textbooks until the first day of class, otherwise you end up either spending too much, or buying the wrong materials. Make sure that whatever your reasons for going to school are being fufilled, otherwise you will end up wasting your time and efforts on ventures that would best be left for a later time and place. Try and keep a job while you're in school, work gives a very good structure to your day, and helps keep you from becoming distracted by various things that would otherwise pitfall your attempts at achieving your collegiate education within the timeframe you set out to accomplish it in. Good Luck, Keep Learning.

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

Be sure that the best resources are available be it professors or facilities. Hands-on experience will benefit you when looking for a job.

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

The need to update some of the science labs is the worst thing about my school. They are functionable but it would be better for the faculty and students if some updates could be made.

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

Make sure the college you have selected fits your personality. It helps to stay in the town that the school is in for a couple of days and take a tour of the campus. Another good idea is to talk with someone from the major you want to do.

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

How long it would take to adapt to the small town

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person that likes to be social, because everyone here is very friendly
