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

Be sure you can afford the school for the entire time of attendance!!!! Parents let your kids go off and do their own thing, if they call you everyday stop answering. They need to learn not to be so reliant on you. If your kid ask for more than $200 a month and they do not live on campus either they shop too much, drink all the time, and/or doing drugs. DO NOT BE IGNORANT! Your kid is going to drink and party, get off their back! The more you lay off the less fun it is for them. (Reverse Psychology)

What's unique about your campus?

The class size is great for teacher student interaction. However, the expectations of some of the teachers is almost out of reach for students because they do not make themselves available to the students

Just double check where you look and make sure it is the right one for you. Don't base it off of the orientation or the tours they give you. Experience it for yourself for a weekend or so.

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

The school spirit and the size of the classes.

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

Just make sure you visit the campus and talk to real students who live and go to school there. Also talk to the faculty and professors that you will be working with day to day. DO NOT go to a college or university just because someone told you to. As for making the most of your college experience, well there isn't much to experience if you don't get out there and get involved. There is so much to do if only you put forth the effort of doing it.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are so outgoing and fun to be around. There is never a dull moment in my classes. Even when everyone is dead tired at 8:00am, theres always someone who brings sunshine to the classroom discussions and makes everyone smile. The professors also love it when students do this, it really gets everyone sitting up and ready to learn.

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

I would encourage both the student and the parents to visit the potential school on more than one occasion. One visit to the place that the student will be spending at least the next four years of their life would most likely not be rewarding enough. When visiting the campus, one should visit many aspects of the school and investigate different programs and activities the school offers. The student should feel pretty comfortable speaking with student leaders of the various activities, especially since these are the people they will be associating with for the next few years. Parents should feel uneasy about letting their ?baby? go off to college, but it is part of growing up. The parents should enjoy getting away from the house to visit every once in a while. College is such a rewarding and life changing experience! When you find the right campus for you, you just know, and your future just starts unfolding right in front of you. If you find the right campus, you don?t get homesick; and when you?re home on holiday breaks, you can?t wait to get back to school!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Stephen F. Austin might not be a good choice for a student that is very quiet and to themselves. Although there are so many people around to make friends with, those who don't get involved to meet those friends become very depressed and stay in their rooms a lot. Then they end up going home every weekend and then switching schools at semester. You have to let your gaurd down a little and meet new people.

Everything is student lead. There are very few active professional adults other than the regents who have any governance on campus. Students lead, organize, and are responsible for 95% of the activities. Students are also responsible for judging unbecoming conduct.

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

With me being a sophomore in college, I've already broken the ice and know how things go. To parents, allow your child to make his or her own choice in where they want to attend. All you can do is guide and show them what is to come because in the end, they are the ones that are going to have to take resposibility for themselves and realize that they come to school for an education. Support their decision in everyway possible, and believe me when i say they do miss you more than you ever know even though their actions might say otherwise. To students, how many parties are thrown and how cute the opposite sex is shouldn't be a determining factor for the right college. You are at school for an education to better yourself as a person for now and the future. Don't stress yourself over boyfriends and girlfriends because it is nothing more than a distraction. Always keep in mind that college campuses are one the biggest STD and HIV/AIDS infected places you will ever be in. Make good, sound decisions that you can live by, and think everything through.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about school to me is there is so much to do but so little time to do it. There is always something going on to fill up your day.

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

I think the school spirit is what sets this school apart from the other schools. People love to go to the sporting events here. They tend to have lots of fun around here. They tend to go all out too. Face paints, painted axe handles, purple haze shirts. Its all good fun.

That its not about what you may want for your kid as a parent but what they may want for themseleves. Make sure that your child wants to attend that college so that they will be happy. Let them be optimistic. Adventurous so to speak. But if I may speak about SFA a lil bit, I honestly believe that dropping your child off at this school may be the best decision of their life along with their child's life to come to school here. They will make life long friends as I have and meet plenty of people so that they will never feel out of place while they attend school. Classes are interesting never boring, people are always trying to make friends with one another and everyone always has that one person that they have around to look out for them. Im my opinion, Stephen F Austin State University is a great choice for you or your child.

What's unique about your campus?

Becuase everyone at this school is so nice. They are always trying to find ways to make new friends and make other people around them happy. Im glad I decided to come to Nacogdoches because its not to far from home and its just right in case of an emergency.

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

It's important to actually visit the school in which your are thinking about attending. And just because you don't like something in the brochure doesn't mean you should rule it out completely. It's also really important to remember college is very different from highschool and should not be treated as a highschool. Just because you had some bad experiences in highschool does not mean you will have a bad experience in college. So, it's best to keep an open mind when choosing a college.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those students with really low GPA's from highschool and those who aren't serious enough. EX: The students who will instigate professor's irritations. Students who can't follow the rules or have a history of vandilism should also not be allowed to attend. We have too many students who vandilise, pull fire alarms and steal others belongings. A little honesty would be nice when you find something thats not yours .
