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

College life... is just as hard as you thought it would be accademically. Life-wise, it's going to be a million times harder. Just stay focused, stay calm, and think through things thoroughly before you act. Make sure you really want to do something before you jump headfirst into it. As long as you keep to that, you'll do just fine. Just remember: you'll make it through, no matter how rough things get. It's not a matter of making it through. It's a matter of how you want to have acted at the end of it all.

My classmates are fun, energetic, social, friendly, easy to get a long with, helpful, and down to earth.

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

A Christian community that focuses on equipping students to be experts in their field, and people that actively participate in the fellowship of the international Christian church and the world around them with compassion and courage, as witnesses of the name of Jesus Christ.

Describe the students at your school.

Young people devoted to becoming more than an adult with a degree, but a Christian with a vocation who in all things acts in integrity and faithfulness.

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

Soak up these last moments of childhood, spend time with your family - never, ever take them for granted. But face the reality you are becoming an adult - it is exciting, but unless you shoulder the responsibility with opportunity, it is wasted. Go to class. Appreciate professors. Love to learn. Never take learning lightly. Dream enormous dreams, but unless you work hard, they'll never come true. All that said, college community will shape you as much as academics. Find great friends, spend time with them - study with them! When you're tempted to make a choice you know is wrong, get out right away. Forgiveness may be easier to get than permission, but your choices now are shaping you into the adult you will be for the rest of your life. Don't waste the time. Study hard, embrace responsibility, enjoy life - it isn't all about a GPA. It's about changing the lives of people around you, and the people who change yours. You will be a person you never imagined on graduation day - remember that when tests are hard, and the relationships difficult...it is worth it. Nothing is impossible, but opportunity only comes to the faithful.

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

I would definitely recommend visiting a school before you decide to attend. You'll learn about the community environment there, the reality of the classes & professors, the dorm life, the caf, etc. That's where you'll get the best picture of your next four years. Talk with your parents/student about every area--financial aid, desired major, etc. to make the best decision. Pick a college that matches your philosophy as well as your needs. Also, try to get a few classes taken care of beforehand at a community college if you're looking to reduce costs. Enjoy it!

What's unique about your campus?

I love how the Bible impacts everything we learn about, and that even in dorm life, we are encouraged to love one another as Christ loved us. I love the genuineness and the care that goes into campus life, and the professors who want to see us become more like Christ and succeed in our educations. I'm thankful for the emphasis on service and community at The Master's College. I think there is such a real picture of Christlike living and Biblical interaction at our school. It's a blessing, definitely. I recommend it!

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is committed to learning to live like Christ in whatever field of study they want to work in, should attend TMC. It is not for the lazy student, or the person who isn't willing to keep track of assignments and be proactive in getting them accomplished. It's also a school of accountable Christian living that nurtures Biblical community. People shouldn't enter the school who don't value that. Someone desiring to learn about humble, loving, Biblical service will love this school. People who want to be well-rounded individuals will love it here.

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

A degee is a degree. Fancy name aside, it is most important to find a school that offers specifically what you are interested in and has a simular philosophy on life that you do. Balence is the key to a successful college experience. The first semester most likely will be a test run. Classes, study, extracirricular activities and social life are all pertinent aspects to a healthy, well-rounded college experience. Time management is an art that takes time to master. Begin homework as soon as you're out of class. Take naps. Sometimes a 20 minute break from studying will help you absorb the material better. Laugh. Take pictures. =)

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The "No Dancing" rule. And the fact that not all rules are enforced equally.

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

Definitely look into more than just one college. You might think you want to go to a certain one, but once you look into it more and explore other colleges, you might find a college that is a better fit than what you originally thought. Also, it is a good idea to view different colleges to get a feel for the campus, its size, the amount of students, etc. Looking into the finances and financial aid is also very important. Schools offer more financial aid than most people realize, and it is a huge help in the long run. Ultimately, choose a college that goes along with your worldview and way of life, that is closely associated with your beliefs, morales, etc. Choose a college that will be a stepping stone in your life to get you where you want to go.

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

The "Bubble." It is somewhat difficult to get involved in the community &/or be aware of local or national events/news. The college campus is almost like its own community functioning separately from the surrounding area. However, once a student realizes this tendancy, they can easily take steps in order to become more involved and more aware of the world around them.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Sometimes the rules were a little frustrating. They are a stricter school when compared to most other schools. I personally didn't have too much of an issue with them, because a lot of the rules went along with the way I was raised. However, when talking with other students, the rules are something that seems to bother a lot of them. (These include a curfew for freshmen and sophomores, dress code, & other things along these lines.)

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

I don't know of anyone who would not benefit from a small classroom, academically focused, progress driven college experience. I attended two universities and the bottom line for success is professor to student interaction. The point of college is to come away with not only knowledge but also the ability to keep learning. With training that focuses on the student, the learning experience is heightened. I would avoid programs that involve too many big lectures taught by TA's and instead try to find a school where the professors are not only friendly and student oriented, but also have high credibility in their field. There is no sense in paying thousands of dollars for a piece of paper that says you snoozed through yet another 300 person class. It is important to find a program that gives you the skills and the correct educational goals and drive to keep learning once the job market or grad school is on the immediate horizon. That is the best advice I can give.

What's unique about your campus?

The Professors. They are knowledgeable and organized. They really care about their fields and do their best to help students learn to love their classes.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I made the mistake of visiting in the summer, when there were no students around. The student population is incredibly conservative, often coming from a home-school/Christian background. I did not identify with most of the students and my transition was hard. After a while I found friends but my first few months were tough. Someone who is willing to sift through the overtly conservative Christian population in order to find an identity as a kind of outsider in order to pursue a superior education should apply to Master's

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

The best way to get a sense of a school is to go spend time on the campus, sit in on some classes and talk with some of the students. And, if you pick a school that doesn't work out for you, there is nothing wrong with transfering to another school.

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

Talk to current students and see what they think about it. No college is perfect, so if it sounds like the students seem to think so, then keep looking. Get a balanced outlook on campus life. To students: college is a completely from high school. The work is hard, and expected to be turned on time. However, you can experience life without harming your GPA, and this balance depends on your major. It's true that this is the only time in your life that you will be able to experience anything like college, so make the most of it. Do the homework that is assigned, turn in projects on time, and there will be little to worry about.

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

The higher-ups don't care about students and kick them out if they make too much of a fuss.

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

The Master's College is only as life changeling as the person it teaches. We still have drugs, drink and sex running on the campus. Students will not exit as the next Nathaniel Taylor nor are ready-made pastors wives made here. Some old roommates of mine are leaving the faith entirely, as it is taught here that to keep up appearances is the worst sin of all. Student Life Services will not complete the job of raising up strong Christian men and women; that was the parents job. And that have better be the condition that the student comes in as, otherwise they will not strive at all.

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

How much work realy goes into a 2000 word essay and theological studies.

The staff in my department (Comunacations) are experenced profesonals who impart their views of life as well as their materal.

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

There is not enough room to express differing view points on issues. Especially politics.

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

Look for a college that will stretch you both academically and socially. It is imperative that you find a school that will test you, and make you consider your view points. You need to look for a school that will not necessarily be comfortable. You cannot go looking for places that will be just like it was at home. You will not learn what it truly means to be human, and a contributor to society unless you go to a school that will make you consider what that means. You need to find a school that will incorporate all of these things, while having a strong grasp of the subject that you wish to study.

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

It is extremely well rounded academically. The professors are always around, and willing to help. The community is one of a kind, and you cannot make better friends than the ones you would make here.
