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.

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

I would strongly recommend that you make at least one visit to whatever school you are considering. In terms of making the most out of your experience, I would just say to try and get involved with a variety of groups in your first semester, and then narrow your involvement when you discover what your passions really are. Don't just lock yourself in a dorm and do schoolwork! Get out there and interact with different people and ideas.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the best thing about my school is the community feeling the faculty, staff, and students work hard to establish.

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

I would encourage prospective students to pick a few colleges and go visit them. Talk to the student recruiting office and see if you can stay with a student for a night or two to see what campus life is really like. If you are looking for a college that lines up with your beliefs, ask any student there what the college stands for. If they do not know, then you should probably look elsewhere. In any case, talk to random students that you meet when you visit. Notice how they react when a random person comes up to them, and you can get a good feel for the overall campus atmosphere. Ask them what they think about the college and if they'd go to the college again if given the chance to do it over. Overall, talking to students at a college is the best way to honestly learn more about the college.

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

Taylor University is really a great place that fosters learning, encourages spiritual growth, and allows for wonderful friendships that will last your whole life. I feel completely prepared by the degree and education that I received, and I feel I had to work hard to achieve the degree that I did.

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

I found a college visit very helpful, especially staying the night in a dorm. Don't waste your time partying in school. Seek out good friendships and relationships, work hard, and stay on track.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A strong Christian who has a heart for the world and for influencing the world through the love of Jesus Christ. A person who wants to receive a quality education in a field that is not necessarily related to missions, but they want to be prepared to be a 'missionary' in their daily life.

Describe the students at your school.

They are very eager to learn in class and to do the best they can. They enjoy making friends with the other students on campus.

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

If you feel like you fit in with the students and feel a sense of community (not only between the students, but between the students and proferssors as well), then I would run with. It will be worth it, no matter how much it costs or how far away from home you will be. I know I am glad I came to Taylor and I came for those very reasons.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Having to walk across the campus in order to get to my classes.

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

My advice to a new student trying to find the right college for them is to do your research. Make a list of things that you want in a college. Then when you go and visit your different options, mark down what criterias on your list that college meets. No college is perfect and will meet all of them, but there will be a college out there for you that meets most of the things on your list. Go where you feel connected and where it feels right. Consider your options and make a plan. Also, remember that all colleges are expensive, but don't let money be your only factor in where you go. If you know where you want to go and are supposed to be there, then everything will work out. Have faith and believe in your decisions, be confident and decisive.

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

The worst thing about Taylor is that they give more financial aid to the athletes than they do those with strong academics. I am receiving no financial aid to go there and it is a pretty expensive school. I cannot affor to go there for all 4 years unless a miracle happens.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants their college experience to be filled with parties and drinking. Taylor has very strict rules about activities like drinking, smoking, and being sexually active. There is a very strong sense of Christian community there and everyone keeps eachother accountable

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

Don't get caught up in activities that will hold you back. Do what you love. Find a real group of friends who loves and accepts you for who you are. It sounds cliche, but college is a time to prepare for complete independence. Make the most of it.

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

I think people tend to emphasize getting a degree to become marketable. I strongly believe a student should do what he or she loves.
