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

Look seriously into the cost of attendance and the fact that currently there is no cap on the cost of attending a university, keep in mind also that the tuition rates and fees will change and suddenly be much higher then when you were told while they were "selling" the school to you. Find one where you feel at home. When you get there, and see it and meet the people of the town, you'll know if its the one.

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

College is the place where you discover the person you will become. You make your life long friends there. You build the foundation for the rest of your life. Therefore, it's no secret, the college you attend will have a direct impact on your future. When selecting the right college, keep in mind how you would like to see yourself in 20 years. Don't limit your decision to the size of the school, the location, where your other friends are attending, or the "party" atmosphere. Rather, approach your decision with maturity and respect for yourself before anyone else. While at college, make your parents proud. As a student, you will represent your school for 4 years, you'll represent your parents, and whatever other organizations you decide to participate in. In effect, you should take responsibility for yourself and realize that your behavior impacts others as well as yourself. Study, work hard, keep an open mind, talk to your professors, you'll be surprised what you'll learn from them and how much you'll have in common. Above all, enjoy - this is the beginning of the rest of your life. Good luck.

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

The school is small and well suited to hold a little over ten thousand students with a rich small town experience in the woods while we pursue our degrees. Everyone is generally friendly and always willing to help. I can disappear into the woods whenever I feel like to take some time alone or if I need to study.

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

I would advise students to seek out the school that would best suit their educational and social needs. Every college is different and they should at least visit potential campuses at least once before deciding. You will get out of the college what you put into it. Going to events for the college also helps to build a spirit of community and students should always take advantage of what the faculty and organizations have to offer. In the end you reap the benefits of long lasting friendships as well as the education the student desired. Parents should support their children in their decision and take part with their students but also to allow students to try out their freedom. Nothing is to be lost seeking out the best choice.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who needs a decent and affordable education while surrounded by a community of caring people and faculty should become a Lumberjack. Stephen F. Austin will treat anyone who takes it seriously quite generously.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I think SFA is best known for being a drinking school and for having a newly updated campus.

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

If I were to give students or parents advice about finding the right college, I would say don't choose a school based on how many of your friends are going there. Once you get to college you are going to meet tons of people and make many new friends. Choose a school based on how much you like it when you visit it and choose one that is good for you. A great way to meet people is to get involved in some sort of activity whether it be a greek organization or a group on campus. The more involved you are on campus the more people you will meet and you will have fun during your free time. Also try to go to sporting events and get spirited, no matter how small the campus is. There is nothing like going to your school sporting events and cheering on your team.

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

I wish I knew how good the Communication Department was before I came here so I wouldn't have wasted a year trying to figure out what major to decide on.

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

It helps to look at the size of a school and if you don't know you want to major in, its probably not best to choose the most expensive college just because you get in and it looks good unless you have have the money to burn.

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

The worst thing about Stephen F. Austin State University is the cafeteria food. The school has consistantly started buying worse and worse food over the last couple of years. When I was a freshman at this school, the food was actually pretty good. Now, I'm mostly buying mac and cheese or soup from Walmart because I can't stand the cafeteria. Not to mention they are over crowded and way loud. When I do go to the cafeteria I usually get a to go box. But they have decided to reduce the size of the boxes.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the policy on pets. I would love to have a dog, and I completely understand not allowing a bunch of dogs or cats in a new dorm. But have students agree with a roommate, no more than one or 2 furry animals in a room (a decent size room) and pay a down payment fee in case something gets destroyed...or just take it out of housing fees and put a hold on grades until the damages are paid.

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

When looking for a school do not just depend on recruits or the website visit the school and ask some of the students going there. The university center is probably the best place to go. Once you get there always keep in touch with your parents and be honest about your experiences. Parent have most likely experienced some of the same things and can give you advice on how work through them and laugh about them later.

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

The worst thing about my school is the lack of stores near campus. The nearest Wal-Mart is pretty far if you don't have a car.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person looking for a university with fun students, and an understanding faculty.
