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

visit as many schools as you can to get a feel for what you want before you even begin to apply, dont apply to just the schools your guidance counselor gives you, do your research and get a feel for where you will fit best. 4 years is a long time, you should make sure you're completely happy with your final choice, and always remember that if you aren't completely happy, you CAN always transfer! its not a big deal!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

a person that wants a big school feel, lots of shopping and nightlife... at stetson there is just enough to be happy for four years and its in between daytona and orlando so while there is a small town feel, there is beach activity and other college nightlife nearby.

What kind of person should attend this school?

someone that is really focused on school

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

Just look for a college that you find would be the best extension of yourself. Because it is you, who will be attending the school. You have an idea of what you want and what your possible career will need, so pick a college that will give you what you need. And you should think of college as an investment in your future so you shouldn't fret over the cost too much unless there is no way you can afford it. You should also do your best to meet new and interesting people becasue the friendships you make in college will last for a long time, possibly a lifetime. And the friends you have will make the time spent at school even more awesome. You should also try new things and find out who you really are.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Open minded people who lie small towns and small classes.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Backwards alcohol policies and visiting hours, incompetent and power-tripping public safety service, administration at almost all levels is very difficult to work with unless you have an "in".

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

Visit the college you are interested in. It makes a difference to talk to real students, not just the ones who are giving the tour of campus. Shadow someone or a class. Do not be afraid to look at a school that your friends are not going to.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants anonymity or a football team.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who likes community and close relationships, close interaction with professors, who likes to be accountable for their work and engagements.

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

Finding the right college takes much time and research. You must in order to get a feel for the school go on camps tours and talk to some of the students already attending. You must feel comfortable in you environment and make the most of your experience by not being afraid to go out of your comfort zone. Meet new people and join as many clubs as you can. Making connections and having those friends will allow for a smooth tansition. Always do your best because this is the only opportunity you will have to show people what you are made of. Always remember you have friends and family to support you as well as professors and faculty. You are never alone.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who has money because it is really expensive. Also, a person who wants to have a small class size and really close-knit community. Stetson is a good school because of the Alumni and Music program.

It's easy to get in but hard to stay. Greek life is a very positive experience. Stay away from Dr. Emily Mieras if you are a man.

Honestly, at the end of the day, you can get a very good education at a lot of schools, but it's the people there - the people who you meet who matter. That's why I've stayed at Stetson University.

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

Lots of very small classes and accessible professors. Lots of pretty girls.

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

You need to find a balance of academics and financial aid. If you're not sure what you want to major in, look for a school with strengths in a lot of areas so that if you change your mind, you're not stuck in the wrong place. Go with your gut in picking a school and hang in there -- everyone wants to transfer their first semester.

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

Choose a college that offers the most amount of activities that suit your child/self. I strongly believe that college is what you make of it, but if you are surrounding but people that are not culturly aware, or surrounded by activites that you dont participate in than college can be a real obstacle. Prepare yourself for the work load, because college can be very extensive, ivy league schools are not neccessarily the best schools, you can easily recieve a top notch education from a public or private institution.

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

The people can be very jaded and ridiculous. There is a lack of diversity hear at Stetson not only among the students but also among the faculty. The financial aid office can be helpful, but tend to give financial aid to people that dont needed rather than the individuals that really need it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is very dedicated towards education and has a clear path for futuristic goals. Someone that doesnt mind the lack of diversity and someone who is heavily into the fraternity/sorority seen.
