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

Visit the campuses before making your decisions. Realize that tuition increases every year. Know that some degrees don't have a clear cut job path and researching job positions is important. Do as many clubs and activities as you can because you meet people through these opportunities.

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

The study abroad office was not organized and made it a tedious process.

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

Choosing where you want to go to college is an extremely personal , and frequently stressful , decision that teens and their families have to make. In order to ease the tension of picking a college one would determine what you might like to study or major in at college first, giving you some idea of a career. One could develop a list of criteria you want to use to evaluate and weed out colleges. For instance, distance from home, financial aid assistance , or class sizes. This would help to lessen your options. Another thing would be to visit the college first. The brochures might show you one thing but when you actually visit you could be expose to a whole new world. Th greatest outcome of the college experience is finding yourself in the proceess. With new responsibilities and a lot of time it is eeasy to discover something different in yourself. When you do, you embrace that innner person and apply it to the rest of your life.

What's unique about your campus?

The small class sizes because you get more stuudent professor interaction.

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

The diversity because one group of people overpopulate the school, then that particular population gains more privilege.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It's high-level business program, as well at its ability to help its students get a job out of college. Also known for its small class size.

I didn't apply to any other school. I briefly entertained University of Florida, but the classes were too huge and it was too large for me. So, Stetson was much more personal, closer, but extremely expensive.

Find out a situation that you are most comfortable with, and go with the college that best suits these needs. I weighted my need to stay at home with my divorced mother heavily in my case, and don't regret it. Because of this I picked a school nearby, and lived off campus to save money. If you're social, and feel that in order to experience college-life to the fullest you need many friends and need to be able to immerse yourself into academic and social pursuits, join a sorority/fraternity and definitely try living on campus. If you're into the arts, focus on schools who offer reputable Arts and Science degrees. Being a business major, I looked into the reputation of Stetson University's Business School before applying. It was rated #1 in the state at the time, so I knew I'd be getting the most out of my money. Always remember that you (or your parents) are paying for you to attend this college, and because of that you should be experiencing college life exactly how you want to. Never go second best, and always think ahead for your future in your career!

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

I would pay attention to the size and the kind of environment that will be best for learning. It's also important to know what kind of financial aid each school gives becuase it is different at every school.

What's unique about your campus?

The size was really good becuase you know people and get to know your professors. Being able to learn in a close community really helped me excel in college.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who loves school, and wants to know everyone, likes small communities and wants to learn about a lot of different things and other ways of life.

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

For prospective studnents and their parents, I think one of the most important things they can do together in selecting a university that fits their needs, is sit down together and make a list of all the features they want at a school and then continue to go through the process of selecting schools together. No one should choose a college without also visiting and seeing what the vibe is at every school they are thinking of attending. Don't choose a university just because your best friend or boyfriend is going there; make the choice that best fits your dreams and aspirations for your life. Follow what you think is right for you, and you won't be disappointed.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The person that shouldn't attend this school is someone who like the big city life and having a large campus. Stetson's campus is spread out, but there are only 3,000 students, so don't go here if you want that big school feel.

Very helpful and outgoing.

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

You want to make sure the college fits your personality. Also you want to think on situations such like not being close to home or not having small classes to see what your fit is.

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

Find a college that first of all will cater to the academic needs you are looking for. For example, if you are wanting to get a degree in biology, find a college that has a solid science degree program. Make the most out of your college experience by getting involved as much as possible.

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

I wish I had known that the way money is distirbuted to certain projects would be unbalanced. I wish I had also known that despite the school being originally part of the Baptist association, everyone is quite liberal.

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

The campus is quite beautiful. The city is, at the most, two hours away from major cities. Also, the education here is phenomenal. You get teachers who are experts in their field or have world-class experience.

It's very small, quaint, and isn't as interesting as it looks when you first see it.

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

If you enjoy small town atmosphere, with little entertainment, and a demanding workload, you will enjoy Stetson University. This is a school for those who intend to work hard. For your $40,000 tuition you will receive a fraction of what a larger school can offer you in terms of resources, entertainment, and etc. All in all, if you have money and lots of patience Stetson is for you.
