Grades aren't everything. It's getting an education that's important. Make sue you pick a school that will give you a great education but also encourage you to make friends and be social. College drinking is a waste of time. Make sure your friends are people who you want to be around when you are sobber. The realtionships will be deeper and you will have much for fun.

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

Make sure that the professors in your designated area of study are professionals (masters or doctorate). Make sure you like the size of the school and the way the community is set up. Make sure that they have opportunities beyond on-campus activities i.e. studying abroad etc.

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

There is not much I didn't know that would have mattered that much.

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

The worst thing about Taylor is the fact that some students are fake and afraid to be who they really are because of what the community will think. However, I do think that staff and faculty have had a strong influence on this issue.

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

I would suggest visiting the campus and spending a night or two in the dorms. It provides you with more insight as to what the campus will actually be like than simply talking to the admissions office. Ask questions of anyone and everyone and don't feel shy. Make sure that you spend time wisely once you get into college. Studying is important but it's not everything. Grades are important but they aren't everything either. Learning is what's really important, so make sure that you are learning and don't worry about the grade so much. Also make sure that you spend plenty of time with friends as studying all day will kill you.

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

I wish I could know which classes to take and which not to take and with which profs.

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

Make sure you know yourself and what you really believe before you decide to go to a religious school. It makes a huge difference in your college career. Pick a place where you want to go, not just where your parents want to go. Those are probably the biggest pieces of advice I can give from my own experience.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who doubts their faith or does not want to be around a bunch of Christians.

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

Finding the right college is a huge deal. However, finding the right college is also a very exciting and wonderful time of life. Decide what kind of person you are. What are your interests? What do you want to major in, or study? Are you looking for a religious school or secular one? Will you be participating in extra curricluar activities? These are some of the questions to ask when you are considering a college. Once you have found colleges you like, apply, then choose which one is the best for you personally. College years are known as the best years of your life. So making the most of the experience is important. Right from the start, make as many friends as possible. Meet and spend time with as many people you can your freshmen year. This will get you plugged into campus life and the community. This will ensure your happiness and love for the college you attend, which is the most important aspect, aside from education.

Think about what you want out of a college first, then search for it. But, be ready to make compremises. Don't forget about the end goal of who you want to be as a person when you graduate from the school.

I wish I would have realized that not everyone comes from the same background as me, and therefor not everyone will always be ok with my point of view.

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

The best thing prospective students can do in searching for a college is to start the search early. The student should spend time thinking about what he or she is looking for in a school and then visit several different schools to get a good feel for the environment and the campus community as well as the academic, social, and cultural opportunities. Starting early allows the student to visit many schools and have sufficient time to process his or her thoughts. It has been my experience that those who are least satisfied with their college choice were those who made hasty decisions and only visited one or two schools. Students who took time to visit and really think about their choices, starting early and doing the necessary research, are generally much happier with their college choice and consequently do much better in school because they know they are exactly where they want to be. Start early! Ask questions, do some searching, think about who you are and what you want your college experience to be like. If you start early and invest some time in your college decision, your college experience will be truly rewarding!

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

Look into the residential life. I have learned more in the dorm from sweet conversations with upper classmen and interactions with my hall director then I have in my classes. My classes are great and very stimulating, but the community and Res Life has had way more of an influence in shaping me then my classes. When you look at colleges, spend atleast a night in the dorm. Try and get a feel for the community. Observe how you're treated. Do people take a genuine interest in who you are and what you're into? College is so much more then the academics. Academics are important, but relationships with people are more important and carry more weight in shaping who you are. Make an educated decision, but when it comes down to it, go with the college that will invest in you as a whole person focusing on your mental, physical, and spiritual components. Look for a place that has an environment that encourages community and stimulates relationships. The most important thing you can gain from the college experience is life long friendships with people who care about you. Look for a place that puts emphasis on relationships.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Don't come here if you want to party.

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

The community. Dorm life is so awesome. Freshmen are mixed in with upper classmen and that is invaluable. I'm making life long friends with solid men and women across campus.
