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

Follow your heart and make your choices based on what you want. Don't let any one else influence your decisions negatively. Make good friends and be willing to work in groups with others and help others. Think about tutoring kids in Physics.

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

There's not very many resources available to commuter students and there isn't much parking. It makes commuters feel slightly unwelcome. Often computers in the library and computer labs are taken by studennts that live on campus and have computers in their dorm rooms. There is only one lounge with a microwave and that microwave never gets cleaned. There are no vending machines with food in them, only machines with snacks.

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

SUNY Fredonia is a place where a student can recieve academics, athletics, and a family type atmosphere all in one place, giving them the greatest overall college experience anyone could ask for.

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

Finding the right college is all about the desires and needs of the student. High school seniors/juniors looking at schools need to remember that choosing a school is their choice and no one else can make the decision for them. Parents sometimes like to give their input and try to persuade their child to go to a school that they feel is right for them but the choice that matters at the end of the day is the student. Students looking at colleges should visit them in person, do research on the schools, and talk to counselors and students. The best way to see what a school is like is by contacting a student one on one, so that they can get the real, uncensored, truth about what it is like to go to that school. But all in all, a student will know what school they want to attend when they visit a place and it just feels right to them, no matter what anyone else says. Overall, college is a new beginning where a person can find themselves , discover what they truly love while having a once in a lifetime experience

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

I think the worst thing about SUNY Fredonia is the recent raising of the cost to attend SUNY Fredonia. SUNY schools are somewhat cheaper than normal colleges in NY state, making them popular among young adults. The recent raise in tuition however, prohibits some students from being able to attend SUNY Fredonia and overall, miss out on an amazing life experience and a spectacular school

Make sure the school is the right size (in population) and place (urban vs. rural) where the student can feel comfortable meeting people and studying. Also, pick a school that offers the courses that the student will be interested in learning.

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

To parents, my advice would be to help guide your child to make a decision that is best for them; not to sway them towards what you would like to see them do. Give them a fair chance to find themselves as well as the profession that they wish to pursue. Growing up under that constant influence makes it difficult to branch out and act on your own accord.

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

How the competitive nature of the school provides valuable experiences & forces you to rise to a new level.

In choosing a college, i advise you visit it, more so then just getting a walking tour. You need to experience the atmosphere and environment of the school. Most people that i know that were unhapy with their school and/or depressed and could not make friends, where so because they did not "fit in" at the school. You have to spend 2-4 years of your life there, you need to make sure you will enjoy living there and be able to make friends and enjoy your life and time there or you will be unhappy and therefore your school work will suffer. I would also make sure to meet the staff, if possible. I LOVED my professors and that makes all the difference. After all, they will be teaching you and their believes and philosophies about your field will be taught to you over and over. It is important you agree with these and connect with your teacher otherwise your pinion on your field may be changed. You must make sure you know, trust, like, and agree with the people you will be working so close with.

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

The most important piece of advice I would give to parents about finding the right college, is to let their children decide which school is the right fit for them. Students, don't pick a college just based on the programs they offer, look at the community, the people, the extra curriculars. Put some thought into the choice, the school will become your home for the next few years and the people attending will become your family. Don't be afraid of what people will think of you, be yourself at all times, chances are you will learn a lot about yourself if you do. Enjoy the college experience, but don't forget why you are there, stay focused and have fun while doing it! College only lasts so long, so take it in and don't hold back!

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

I would have to say the wordst thing about SUNY Fredonia is the weather. In the winter it is freezing outside so you have to wear layers of clothing to keep warm. Inside the education buildings though, the heat is always turned up all the way, so you have to peel off the layers. In the Spring it is the opposite. The temperature outside is rising, and so is the airconditioning inside. Often times you'll have to bring a sweatshirt or jacket to class so you don't freeze.

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

My advice to parents and students about finding the right college is to figure out which school has the major the student is interested in by going online. Then make a list of their top ten choices, and then go on campus tours. Tours are great way to see the campus and get a feel for it. If you do not like just the feeling on campus you know that that place is not right for you. Also on a tour it is a great way to understand what the college's finicial aid policy is. It is also a great way for the students to network and meet some professors and other students on campus.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is that it is a bigger school but it has that small school feeling to it. There are a goodamount of students but mostly everyone knows each other. This is from the tons of on-campus activities that are avaiable. We have tons of clubs and also a great music school on campus. With this music school that means that there is always concerts going on. That is my favorite thing, that amount to do on campus and also that everyone knows each other.

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

I would have it so each major was rated and you could compare it against the average, or have the person accessing the site take a personality test to see how compatable they are with certain colleges.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Theater majors are everywhere. If you have a real major that requires work you will have to deal with people bitching about their workload when you have it 100 times harder in the physical sciences.

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

Fredonia offers a number of wonderful opportunities and programs that everyone should look at and get involved with. It really helps make the college experience all that it can be!

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

You want to find a college that makes you feel comfortable and has a program that will keep you interested. It also helps to visit around to see what the college has to offer. I would advise that the student get involved in as much as possible because it helps to meet new people and get to learn more. These extra activities and the people that you meet will give you life long memories and experiences that you couldn't get anywhere else. It truly is a great experience!

What's unique about your campus?

I believe that the music program is the best because it is competitive and it produces some of the most amazing music I have ever heard. It is a joy to be part of this program.

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

Visit all of the colleges that you apply to and plan to apply to. This is very important becuase if you decide to attend one college without visiting it first, and you end up hating the area, campus, etc., then you might have to transfer to a different college and go through the process all over again. And if you visit colleges, you will get a sense of what the atmospheres are like. Plus, you might discover that dream college of yours is the one you really want to go to, or is the one you definitely do not want to apply to. As for your college experience, get involved in at least one club/activity that you are used to, and get involved at least one more that is completely different. This way you will meet different people and make friends. You might even discover you like something new. But do not get involved with too many groups or else your academic work will suffer. Also go some parties to relax and have some fun, but do not get pressured into performing acts you do not want to do. And save the parties typically for the weekends.

What's unique about your campus?

The music program because it is very advanced and lets you get a feel of what you'll expect in the real world.
