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

Taylor is located in the middle of not-too-much. Students here rely on their social skills and ability to create their own activities. In this way, students at Taylor are challenged to balance themselves out academically and socially in a healthy and positive way. If all else fails, a big city is just an hour away.

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

The academics of a school are very important- we all know that. I would challenge students and parents to look at a school's social setting and environment. A college student learns what he or she needs to in order to advance a career in the classroom (about 15 hours each week), but learns what it takes to grow as a person outside of it. People are such important learning tools. People give hope, encouragement, and examples. After 2-and-a-half years away from home, I have built significantly upon the values instilled within me by my parents, due to experiences I have had at my school. Get involved at school, but don't get overwhelmed- find a good balance that helps you get involved in other people's lives, but make sure to give yourself enough time to be on your own. If you go 100-mph all the time, you give yourself no time to reflect upon your experiences, and therefore deprive yourself of a healthy growing experience while at school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is comfortable in who they are, but is willing to be exposed and accepting of others' ideas and views. Someone who wants to be challenged not only in the academic sense, but mentally and socially as well.

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

As you are looking for a college that suits you, make sure you think about things you'd like to get out of your college experience. Whether its spiritual growth, challenging academics, study abroad programs, etc, keep that in mind while you're touring. Ask questions! And most of all, find what feels comfortable. When I chose my college, I knew as I was touring, that I could see myself going to this school. And I have never regreted my choice.

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

I really can't think of anything I would have liked to have known. My experience has been pretty good.

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

The worst part about this school is it's lack of diversity. Because it is a private, Christian school it only attracts certain types of people. However, the reason for it's lack of diversity is also it's best characteristic. I find that education, reinforced by faith is the BEST part of Taylor.

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

A lot of colleges offer similar things. You will, most likely, get a good education from whatever school you attend, but there are countless schools to choose from, and many of these schools would be a poor choice simply because you just don't fit in with the rest of the students. Lets face it, most kids do not have the slightest clue what they want to do with their lives or what they they would chose in which to major. Finding a school with a comfortable enviroment where you can figure out what you want to do, what you should major in, and where you can learn and make lifelong relationships is what is important. Spend a night in one of the dorms of a potential school if you can, because this will really give you an idea of what the life of a student is like. If you feel at home, attend some classes the next day, and if not, go to another school and try again. The right school will find you eventually, just have a little faith.

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

The worst thing about Taylor University is the lack of a large college town. While civilization is only about 30 minutes to an hour away, not having a city within busride or walking distance can be rather upsetting.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is easily offended by Christians, or someone who does not like social interaction should not attend Taylor University. The campus is vocally Christian, and pushes social interaction on all occasions. If you cannot balance your school workload and your social life when oppertunities present themselves, then Taylor is not right for you.

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

Search for a university that will provide you with a quality education, opportunities for growth, and an atmosphere that will support you in success. If you are able to find ways to finance your schooling, private and small universities are able to provided these things more so than public universities where there is more of an influence on parties and socialization. Ask yourself what is most important to you and seek out those qualities.

What's unique about your campus?

The Christian spiritual emphesis and opportunities to grow while attending school is the best thing about Taylor University. College is a very influential and developing time in life. To be surrounded by positive influences is very rewarding.

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

I went to a very challenging university. The education I recieved at Taylor University was very well-rounded, comprehensive, and prepared me well to enter my career and life after college.

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

I would say that you need to look into yourself and find the strengths that you have. Also discover the best way that you learn. Then look for colleges that support those. I know I had to learn a new way to learn when I went to my college. I love my school, and I would suggest that instead of just looking at the buildings, you look to the people and the teachers, because in the end, it is only a building. The people are who you will be interacting with, and it helps if you enjoy their friendship or teachings skills.

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

I think that the worst thing at my school is the open house hours. Boys are not allowed into the girl dorms unless it is the weekend and the same for girls. The only exception is if a floor or dorm has a special open house and then all genders can go to that dorm until 11 p.m.

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

I talk about how wonderful my teachers and friends are. This campus is very focused on relationships, and it shows from the dean of students to the people you live with.

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

When looking for a college, the most crucial deciding factor is that the values of the school should match the values of the family and individual looking for a college. Also, nothing substitutes for a campus visit: being able to interact with both faculty and current students is a unique experience that cannot be attained on-line or in a brochure. Never be afraid to ask questions, both to teachers and students. Students can give the inside perspective of the campus that even some professors may not be able to. A wide range of schools should be looked at to give variety and differences of perspective. When a college has been chosen, the student needs to live up to his or her values as best as possible to create a meaningful experience for that student. If getting a job after college is most important, then the student should make this his or her focus. If getting accepted to graduate school is most important, then that should be the top focus. It all comes down to prioitizing. When the student has his or her priorities in place, then the college experience will be most meaningful.

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

It is an integration of faith (in Christ) and learning with a strong emphasis on community.

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

It was ranked #1 in the U.S. News & World Report and has high standards. Also, the employment rate after graduation is among some of the highest in the nation. The classes are small and the professors friendly and helpful.

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

I would say that to find the right college you should go to a place where the people are most like you whether it be how driven you are, what activites you are interested in, or your religion. If you find a college where most people have the same view and outlook on life as you it will be easier to fit in and you will be more likely to make friends and actually like your professors.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you aren't at all interested in Christianity or Christian Community this is not the place for you. If your idea of College is crazy parties all the time this is not the place for you.

Try to get as many scholarships as possible. Go into college not looking for what you can get out of it, but how you can benefit the school and your peers.

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

Community. Strong academics, a difficult but challenging school. Intigrating faith and learning.
