Some professors are nice but there are those with a god complex that will not work with the students. This is an email I received from my professor after a family crisis:

Subject: RE: Final Portfolio
I am sorry for your loss, but you should have called or emailed me. My phone number and email are on the syllabus.
Students who do not turn in the final portfolio on time, and who do not make other arrangements with me beforehand, are not acting responsibly enough to pass the course.
I love the this college. I am glad that my parent made me look into small college because feel like this is the best fit for me. I love the Criminal Justice program and feel that all of my professors truly care if I success and if get enjoy my time in the program.
I love it! I’m more in tuned to a small school! The class of no more than 25 is awesome! And the teachers are always available for one on one help! There are lots of social things to do and the food is great! Totally awesome atmosphere couldn’t ask for a better learning experience.
The perfect small town college. It's located directly between two larger cities, Chattanooga and Knoxville, that offer plenty of "big city" things to do. The professors know you. You will not go unnoticed by the faculty. The small school provides a comforting environment. The school's athletics are competitive.

I would tell myself to be more prepared. It's alot different than just switching from Elementary school to middle school then High school. It takes alot more effort and alot more studying is involved. So I would recommened getting everything ready in advanced and not beat around the bush. School can wait but only for a little bit. You can't just keep putting everything off. Sometimes you don't have time to do things at the last minute. I believe that anything is possible if you try try and try again. Don't give up even if you seem to fail at something because sooner or later you will get the hang of it.
Be prepared at Tennessee Wesleyan to be in an environement that is prepared for learning. Be ready to engage in great discussion and lectures with your instructors. Be prepared to hit your career ready to succeed.
The school is best know for its friendly staff that work here.
Someone who wants to party. This is a christian school and you will get suspended if your caught.
I consider my school to be unique because it so small compared to other colleges that considered. The class ratio is tremendously smaller than the other schools. It is also different because of it's religious background.
The worst thing about my school, Tennessee Wesleyan College, is the cost. I love the campus and instructors, however the cost is out of my price range. I am currently getting student loans to help pay for classes and will pay them off on a teacher's salary after I graduate. After transferring colleges three times, Tennessee Wesleyan College offered courses that would help me graduate quicker than other area schools. In the end, the timing of graduation, nice campus, and loving instructors are keeping me at TWC, despite cost.
The friendly environment and how everyone gets along and can hang out with any issues. The college has the students best interests at heart.
Tennessee Wesleyan College is a private, Christian/Methodist based college with a small comfortable campus, great staff, and they really treat you like a person not like a number.
Free tutoring, Commuters lunch deals. It helps alot that they offer these things because i can't really afford it other wise
Students who want to go to a smaller college,but still wants a good education.
I wish I would have known the classes were as tough as they are. I started out with 18 hours plus baseball and I had to drop a class to see straight. I love the challenge and it was a very blessed challenge.
Not being able to make up classwork or tests that you miss due to sickness, and sports
