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

The most important part about choosing a college/university is making sure it's where you want to be. If you feel like you won't fit in or won't get the most for your money, don't attend that college/university. It's crucial that you feel comfortable where you're going to school. Check out the campus life and make sure you get involved. Make new friends as much as you can, but stay academically focused. This is your future! Have fun making it, and do what you want with it!

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

My advice is to check out the campus and housing, as well as the surrounding area to know what is available on and off campus for you. You should make sure that the school is about what your goals are and that there are things for you to do that you are interested in. The curriculum should be geared toward what your goals and ideas are, but the surrounding area on and off campus mean alot to. Make sure that there are things for you to do that you enjoy in your spare time and have some fun together with the new friends you will make!

What's unique about your campus?

I think the best thing about my school is the people here are all very friendly and helpful, I have made alot of friends from all over the country and am having alot of fun!

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

I wish I would have known it is hard to get an off-campus part-time job to help out with my finances.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Findlay is best known for the equestionian program. They are known nation wide for this program they complete at a very high level and have a very good program in this field.

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

My advice for anyone who is trying to figure out the right college for them would first be figure out what you want to major in and then base your college mostly off that. There are always going to be other intangables that will alter what college you want to go into, but your only going to attend that college for two to five years. Your major or future job your going to have to deal with for your entire life. So find a college that is going to best prepare you for your future job, get you a job after you graduate, and be willing to help you out along the way. I got lucky enough to find a college that is willing to do those three things and beyond and I hope you have the same.

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

I would have to say I brag most about the education department at Findlay. They are very helpful and willing to help their students no matter what. I tell them how their are around twenty teachers and they are have different parts of the field they specialize in. They make sure you get the most out of your education. I think this helps because one day you are going to be teaching students just like we was when we was in high school and elementry school and they want the best education for them.

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

Parents and students need to be able to choose a place best for the student. Weather this means acidemically or socialiy or noteriety, students need to feel comfortable in the place they choose. If they are not comfortable, it will not be a good choice as the experience gained will not be as much as it could be at a diffferent school. Parents need to be flexible with their children in helping them decide where to go to. After all, it is the student's decision in the end. However, the student should be aware of financial budget so as to not become in debt in the future.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

the maturity level of the students is rather low.

Go visit your college before you make any decision about where to go. And once you get there if you are unhappy, leave. College should be the best time of your life, do not stay becuase you think you are obligated to.

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

Write down what you are looking for and see what each university provides for your needs. Choose your friends wisely and don't change your morals to fit with popular people. College is a bigger high school.

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

A large population of students go home on the weekends and there are very little activities available on the weekends.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is focused on getting a degree and working hard for it.

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

I would say that students should go with their instincts. Visiting a college camups gives a very good impression of the kind of school it is and the kind of students that go there. When it comes time to choose, try to pick the one that is the most like the students' personality. Because no matter how much it costs or how high it is ranked, if it doesn't feel right, it won't be.

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

That there are very few job opportunities for out of state students. Most businesses will not hire you if you're not from Findlay because you go away over breaks.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is looking to be part of a close-knit community.

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

To find the right college, I would suggest visiting all the colleges you are interested in and getting a private tour. The tour guides give you a lot more information in private tours than in public ones, and you will be able to learn more about each school this way. After visiting all the possibilities, I would make a list of the pro's and con's of each school. After reviewing the list that was made, I would then decide which school made you feel most at home. You want to make sure you go somewhere where you feel comfortable. Your academics will be affected if you don't feel at home on campus. To make the most of the college experience, I would make sure to get involved in as many organizations as you are interested in. The more things you get involved in, the more friends you make. Also, make sure to go to the on campus activities. There are always more students at these activities than you would expect, which gives you another opportunity to network with other students. Your college friends become your family, so the more you have, the better your experience will be.

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

That there was absolutely nothing to do on the weekends.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who isn't looking fo extremely hard classes but still wants a good, strong education.

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

My advice to future college students and their parents about finding the right college is to one, definitely visit all of the choices. When you visit a college , one can get an idea of what the professors are like, the student population, campus facilities and where they would live for their college career. Ask lots of questions to the tour guide, students you may pass on campus, the professors and also administrators and staff of the college. Also, take a tour of the community in which the school is in, one may love the school, but if it is located in an undesirable area, then that could damper one's college experience. To make the most of the college experience, get involved on campus. If a student is involved on campus, they are more likely to do well in the classroom, socially, mentally, positively affecting a student's overall health. Being involved on campus has helped me adjust to college life and helped me further my education.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school are its opportunities for work or employment. There are many jobs on campus and off campus. I have two on campus jobs, one as a Resident Assistant and the other as a Computer Lab Assistant. These jobs give me opportunity to meet new people, get familiar with campus facilities and buildings and give me more responsibility as a newly independent student and adult.

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

I say that my school is great. I am always involved in activities on campus, extracurriculars, and social activities. Being involved on campus is what keeps me here at school, keeps me interested , and it makes school and the college experience more fun.

Describe the students at your school.

Findlay is a very conservative school. However, there is a lot more acceptance of the liberal minded amongst the conservatives despite their differeing veiwpoints, than other places I have lived down south. There is some racism, prevelant. More so by the locals, but it still can get perturbing. Campus is shifting towards being more green, but there is resistance and laziness. Most of the students that have been here for a while are very driven and focused, and the ones that aren't (be they drinkers/partiers or not) usually transfer due to the price.

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

Research the school thuroughly. Make at least one visit to the school, and no less than one. Don't necessarily decide what school to go to based on the programs they offer (since you might switch programs). Try to stay overnight on campus and attend at least one class. Get a copy of the universities policies (on-campus living, behavioral, academic expectations) before deciding on a school, so that you can find a school that fits your personality and habits better. It is extremely frustrating to find out these things later on. Greek Life is incredible: in my experience it has not been anything like what is perpetuated by Hollywood stereotypes. granted that does take place in certain locales, I am sure, though it was much more that way in the early 90s and before. Greek Life has offered me a frequent opportunity to do community service, invaluble people skills, social and business networking, academic standards (much higher than the school's), and a home away from home. I would highly encourage any motivated individual to look into Greek Life at a small school, and possibly a large school too, but DO NOT stand for hazing.
