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

the best advice i have for new students is to find out what the school does in regards to activities and whether you find them fun or not. try to find a student with your intended major, that goes to the school, so you can go on a school visit with the student and sit in the classroom and experience the classroom so you can judge it for yourself. You can see first hand what you'll be in store for. do not just settle for the campus "visit" where you walk around with a guide. also find out what the general interest is within the school and find out if students like the school before investing time and money in the school. Check out the grading policy, some people may not agree with a plus minus grading system. My general opinion in finding the right school is search early, make sure the school fits your personality and satisfies all of your needs before you enroll.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing i like about my school is it is close to my house, and that the class sizes are wonderful

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

the class sizes are small so the teacher knows you personally which can be a great thing. Also, my major is business so my classes are all in one building. I am in the sorority and that allowed me to make close friends who i will remain close with my whole life.

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

Go see whats out there! Schools you may have never thought of attending may be the school for you! Bigger is not always better! Don't let tuition costs influence your decision; everyone is struggling to pay for it too! Ask questions, chances are you're not the first who has wondered that! Don't ask what you can do for your college, ask what your college can do for you. Get involved in clubs and organizations! Not only does it look good on a resume, you'll have fun! If you have the chance, STUDY ABROAD! It is a life changing, eye-opening, amazing experience that you won't forget. Make friends! Get a life out of school! Keep in touch with old friends. Talk to your parents, they actually give good advice. Most importantly, be yourself. If people don't accept you, they aren't people you need to be associating with.

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

Commuting between the newer campus that housing is on and the original campus is a pain! But, they have shuttle services that run frequently to make it easier. But if you have classes on the other campus, you need to leave a half hour before. No rolling out of bed an going to class unless you're lucky and have classes on the housing campus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who isn't career-oriented, friendly, and doesn't like fitting in. This college (now university) is very friendly and strives to make sure that everyone finds their niche and get the most out of their colleg experience.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I'm not from the area so I'm not positive what its reputation is, but everybody loves the dorms and I think people in the community respect the school.

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

I would tell them to choose a school first based on major. I know a number of people who have had to transfer from their college after they decided on a school which does not offer what they want to study. Go to a school with a vibrant social life and where students have a lot of pride in their school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is going to be able to get all their work done and still go out and have a good time on weekends.

What's unique about your campus?

The personal attention that you receive from the professors.

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

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

A small school with big school oppurtunities and somewhere where you learn who you really are and meet some amazing people along the way.

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

Visit the schools, it can look great on paper but a visit could completely change your mind. The biggest school isnt always the best school.

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

Our class sizes as well as our Career HQ program. Also the fact that I'm very likely to be in graduate school or have a job when I graduate. This is like a family setting and VJC makes me feel at home.

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

Choose a college you know will help you best in your success. Make you you will not be in overwhelming debt as well. If you need a small loan thats great but having a huge loan turns into a problem. Look at different schools and visit them to get a feel of how they will be when you are there. Do not be afraid to ask question because that will better help you understand their structure. Pick a school you know you will be able to get your work done but also have a social life where you can interact with people who are in the same position you are at school. It is a great help to meet with advisors to help you make yourself feel comfortable with being at that college or university. If you are not sure on a major choose a community college and figure out what you want to be while getting all the required prequistes. It is easier to make these decision so you will not be in a bind in your junior year at a college that you are not happy at.

What's unique about your campus?

The small class size and getting to know your teacher on a personal level

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I feel that not being able to afford basic things such books and supplies hurt my chances to succeed.

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

Make sure that the college that the student wants to go to is their choice, not yours. Extensive pressure for students to go to their parents' college is not fair to the student. The parent is not the one going to college! I also think its important that the over protective over involved parents release their parental grip on their children. Let the student experiment. College is not just a place you attend to go to learn. There is a lot of mental and emotional transformations that take place at college and a student should be able to experience every tear, every let down, every late paper, every broken heart, and every laugh that coming to college has to offer. Students.... take this opportunity to find your true passion and once you find it, strive to do it well. Lastly, parents and students remember: college is the beginning place to become who you will be for the rest of your lives.

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

The worst thing about my school is the quality of food. I strongly feel that more fiber enriched, whole grain, and overall wholesome foods are needed to prevent disease and sickness.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is small, but growing quite a bit. We now have two campuses, but it is easy to get classes on either. The campus is small and the classrooms are easy to find. I love the library because it is often quiet and it is filled with all kinds of books. The professors are very knowledgeable and usually very helpful. The school altogether is warm, inviting, and friendly.

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

The first thing I would tell students or parents looking for the right college is always to visit them. The website you look at may seem great, but actually going to the college and talking to students and professors is the best way to get to know the school and if it feels right to you. I visited a couple of different school and came to find that I prefered a small school with smaller classes, but someone else might prefer lectures and higher student to teacher ratios. To get the most of your college experience, I would say to try new things whenever you can. Often school have orientation days or social events that have tables set up with the different clubs and organizations available for you to participate in while on campus. Talking with the member of the clubs will give you insight on whether or not you may want to do that activity while giving you a chance to meet some of your peers and start creating relationships. This will also give you a great opportunity to make friends in clubs. The best way to find a college and experience it is just to try new things.

What's unique about your campus?

The class size is the best. Classes are generally small so I am able to get more help from teachers and it is more personal. I feel that I learn more in small classes because we are able to have more discussions and are able to learn from each other, as well as the professor.

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

Do whatever you feel like doing during your college years. Don't stress about things; everything will be fine in the end. Look at different schools and do more than just the campus tour. Have someone show you the campus that actually attends the university! Go there on the weekend and get a feel for student life.

What's unique about your campus?

How close everyone is. People are very freidly and everyone is pretty outgoing so you make friends quickly.

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

How small it is becasue nobody ever stays here on the weekends and everyone knows everyone else so you never meet anybody "new" all the time.

Describe the students at your school.

Atfirst i thought everyone was stuck up, but then i realized they were all shy just like me. Now i have some of the greatest classmates and friends someone could wish for. We are always there for eachother and everyone is always willing to go above and beyond to help someone else out.

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

Go into the college experience with your eyes open, relaxed and brain working. Think not only what you look for now but a school that will help you look forward to our future as well. Somewhere that will prepare you for everything that comes up in your life so you will never be taking off guard. Look for a school that will keep you safe, will bend over backwards to help you, teach you and tutor you if needed. Find somewhere like Villa Julie, when you walk in the door everyone smiles.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who should attend this school should be career focused and serious on their future. Villa Julie is a school with great pride and it is not a school people pay alot of money to go to and joke around. I would recomend being outgoing, ambitious, and a hard-worker.
