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

Make close friends right at the start. Dont get wrapped up in a social life, make grades your first priority. Get involved freshman year, dont wait till later, you will be missing out on a lot of amazing experiences and meeting great people. Make connections with upper classmen they will be a great resource for you. Remember to always have fun and learn as much as you can along the way.

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

Make sure you prioritize. Always place your classes before your friends. Keep in mind that your GPA follows you forever--friends come and go. When you are given an assignment, always go the extra mile and do research on the topic--even if research isn't required. One of the most important bits of advice is don't assume you know everything beforehand. Chances are you don't.

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

Being a music student, I tend to brag about the quality of our music school. Our ensembles are on the level of professional musicians.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Stetson University is geared toward highly motivated individuals who know what they want. Self-starters would find the environment particularly condusive, whereas students who require daily reminders about assignments will not feel at home here.

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

Start early, and make sure you have an open mind to all possibilities. Make a list of your goals, and see what school matches up to them. Then make the dream into a reality

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

Have fun with your parents when you start looking for colleges. It is an amazing experience looking for the place you will spend the next chapter of your life, so enjoy every minute of it. Make sure that you visit the schools you are interested in, because seeing is believing. You will know when you step on that campus if you are meant to live there or not. Make sure you ask lots of questions. Talk to admissions counselors, professors, and even students. All of these people will give you different perspectives, which will help make your decision even easier. Once you are at school, make the most out of your college experience as possible. Learn with an open mind and soak in as much information as possible. It's a crazy world out there and you'll need to be as prepared as possible. But when you have spare time, live it up. Have fun with your friends, go out and meet new people. College is the best place to make connections and build bridges. Live without regrets and laugh at every chance you can. Not everyone can go to college, so appreciate the moments you ive in.

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

I wish I would have had a better idea of what I wanted to major in so that I would not have wasted so much time as an undecided student, which has now caused a problem for me in determining if I will graduate on time or not.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the housing situation. I wish we had more apartments available for students, especially underclassmen. My friends that go to larger universities start living in apartments their sophomore year and I won't be able to live in one until I am a senior, so that is frustrating sometimes.

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

Throughout high school I never knew where I wanted to go to college. I grew up in a small town where just graduating high school was a big accomplishment. However what I did know was that I wanted to find my own path in life. Don't settle for less when it comes to your education. Try things bigger than you thought you were capable of. I applied to many colleges and even though my SAT scores were not perfect I still made my application reflect who I was inside. Colleges really don't just view you as a test score. So get involved, show what your true interest are and apply for that Ivy League school even if you think your scores don't make the cut. If you are truly a great fit then they will select you regardless of your scores as long as your grades show that you have to foundation to do something with what you've learned. I got waitlisted at my dream school even though all my teachers and even my guidance counselor told me I didn't have a chance. I still gave it a shot, and it made all the difference.

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

Stetson University is unique when you compare it to other school becasue of its charm and dedication to academics. My largest class size over the past three years has been 30 students! The small class sizes allow professors to engage students and take stock in their academic success.

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

My first piece of advice to parents and students is that college is not for everyone! Some students are not mentally prepared for the freedom and responsibility that comes with college. Too many of my friends from freshman year flunked out or dropped out because they realized college wasn't for them. So students: Be prepared! Along, with you extra long twin sheets and fake ID, bring some wisdom, some responsibility, and a drive to do well academically. And Parents: Be prepared! Your college students don't need to hold you hand anymore but along the way they will need your wisdom, your encouragement, and your approval. Please don't keep them chained to your hip and please don't drop them off at the curb with only a goodbye.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person who should attend this school is of any race and any ethnicity. They are a financially stable person wiht a can do attitude. They are outgoing, flexible, strong academically, and they care about the academics of others. They don't mind a small town or walkign to class everyday. They can take the heat and they own a pair of rainboots!

You run into alot of closeminded people. The food is not great especially if you come from a family with great meals. School spirit is not great but they are working on it.

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

The college search is all about finding what is the best fit for you as the student. Make sure to look at schools of all sizes and compare them to eachother. This will help you notice the differences in each school so you can really find what you do and don't want to be a part of. Be sure to also focus on what schools are offering for scholarship and grant packages because you don't have to pay these back, however, for loans, you will. In addition, make sure that the school accepts outside scholarships from your high school, employer, etc. Finally, look at what majors and organizations are available and also consider how flexible the school is in creating new programs. A school that is willing to help you customize your future is a school that cares.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The gap between innovation in each academic department.

Stetson University is a fantastic experience, and academically, it will NEVER dissapoint. Be aware, however, that the freedoms that come along with attending University and being on your own for the first time can be overwhelming, so stay connected and interested in the life of your children even when they are out of sight. With that said, however, don't assume that things are wrong just because they don't want to call you every day.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The financial aid office; not being allowed to move off campus if a student desires before their senior year.

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

The community. This school emphasizes "family" within the school and seeks to encourage its faculty as well as students to support each other. The faculty are very close and keep each other accountable for what they are doing, while the students feel a undeniable care from the faculty because of this. The students are encouraged with this sense of community and they are also very close to each other. This sense of community is like none other and definately helps the student striving to complete their education.

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

It is helpful for the student/parent to keep in mind to do their best to find the right college but at the same time they mustn't stress or worry about it. When the right college comes a long they will know without a doubt that they are meant to go there. This experience involves much hard work, but at the same time there must be a relaxed attitude---in respects to not being stressed and letting that rule your life.

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

The level of excellenece in the teachers. The teachers are very well-educated themselves, and very experienced in their field. It is an honor and privledge to be taught by them.
