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

When looking for the right college find the one that makes you happy. The one that can help you reach your goals and help you find your way in the world. This is not always the most well known school, but it will be the one you come to know. Do make the most of your college experience, just remember you are paying for it and you will only experience it for the first time once. There is a lot to do so try everything at least once and that will help you find your place and new friends. Good luck!

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

The advising portion of my education has been the worst thing about the University of Findlay. Your personal academic advisor does not know you personally nor do they pay close enough attention to your progress and classes to keep you on take for graduation.

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

Advice I would give to parents and students looking into the right college would be to find one that seems right for you (the student). Do not go to a specific college because you feel pressured to chose it because another sibling went there or a parent went there. Education is a great gift to have and not everybody can strive to get the best education they can in the same enviroment as somebody else. So look into where you want to go, whats around the campus (is there activities you enjoy offered int he community?), and what kind of classroom enviroment is offered (is there a small student to teacher ratio?). So take your time and do not accept the first school you come across because your going to pay for an education and you want to make sure it is the right one for you.

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

I wished I would have known about the country side of the school and how much it is apart of the school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who love andneed to be in the city and in a fast paced enviroment should not attend this school. It is more of a country/equine based school.

It's smaller so you're closer with friends and you know a lot of people around campus. That is definitely nice!

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

When you visit, just make sure you feel "at home". Make sure that it fits you and that it's not too big. Make sure you can afford it as well, being in debt is NOT fun.

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

We have an amazing basketball team. There is always something to do on weekends. Classes teach you what you need to know in the long run. Professors are WONDERFUL! It's nice to walk around and know almost everyone.

The University of Findlay is a small, caring, and friendly campus with many diverse students and professors; where the professors care about their students work and progress in the class.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The University of Findlay is a small, friendly campus while other schools are much larger. The University of Findlay students are known by their professors and will receive help whenever needed. Tutoring services are also available to any student. Professors at the University of Findlay are helpful and care about their students work and progress. At the University of Findlay, I know professors care about me, help me find a job, and help with my studies.

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

The advice I would give to parents and/or students searching for the right college is does the college suit the student. When I visited the University of Findlay, I knew this was the college that I wanted to attend in the fall. The university is small, clean, and friendly, just what I was looking for. Also, the University of Findlay has small class sizes, where the professors knows the student personally. The professors help students with their studies and care about them. Faculty and staff are friendly and helpful, so students feel comfortable around them. To make the most of the college experience, be involved on campus and in the community. I am involved in many different organizations and volunteer service because I enjoy meeting new people and helping the university and community. Also, meet different people on campus. The University of Findlay has many diverse people from all over the world such as India, China, and Japan! Therefore, students can interact and personally know other students from other parts of the world. Also, to make the most of the college experience, attend different activities such as theater plays, social events, and athletics. Make yourself a well-rounded person!

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

The main focus of choosing a school is the reason your are going to school in the first place, the academic part. Try to avoid choosing a school based on its proximity to home, how many of high school friends will be attending, or how big of a party school it is. No matter what school is chosen, great memories and life long friendships will be made. However, great memories need to take a back seat to class work. There is nothing more important than getting good grades. The purpose of college is to gear up for the "real world" and must be taken seriously. If students stay on top of their work, good times will generally be easier to come by because there will not be as much stress over grades. Stay level-headed, focused, and keep a sense of humor throughout, and college can be a collection of some of the most rewarding and fun experiences in life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone. There is something for everyone

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are as interested in the subjects as I am, determined to get as much out of the class as possible, willing to help other people in the class with problems and form study groups, and similar in their major choice.

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

Choose the college that offers the most student support for academics and offers a strong program for your major. Pick a school where you immediately feel like your at home or that you will easily fit in with the student body. Pick a school where it is easy to get involved and make the most of the college experience.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Some teachers aren't as qualified and don't have as much experience as they should be since tuition is so high. Also, some of the open hours of some of the facilities.

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

Searching for the right place to further your educational career is a very stressful experience. However, it may also be one of the best experiences in an individual's life because it is an opportunity to selectively pick your future. Advice in this situation is critical and I would advise a new student to: narrow the search down to a handful and then take visits, select a campus that is right for you not your friends, join extracurricular organizations, enjoy your independence, and most importantly interact with fellow students. It is crucial to narrow your search to a couple campuses so you do not waste your time with schools that aren't for you. Also, this is your future and not your friends so it is important to select a school you like and not one that your friends like. Once you are on campus you need to join organizations so you can quickly make new friends to help reduce the inevitable home sickness. Independence is a great thing however; do not abuse it because you can quickly be in over your head. These are a few suggestions I wish somebody would have told me prior to my college education.

What's unique about your campus?

The University of Findlay has many positive attributes such as small class sizes, a small town environment, and most importantly extraodinary professors. The professors at the university are extremely enthusiastic and always willing to help. As a student athlete I have had the opportunity to work with professors in order to make sure I do not miss any class work. In all of my experiences the professors have been flexible with my schedule and have offered their free time to review the material. Overall, the professors at the university are the strongest quality because of their enthusiasm, dedication, and flexibility.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Selecting a college is the hardest decision students have to make because no one school is right for everybody. For students who do not want to attend large universities and prefer small class sizes the University of Findlay would be a great choice. Individuals who are more interested in learning than partying should consider the university because it is an alcohol free campus. The University of Findlay has a strong religious community where students regularly talk about their faith. The University of Findlay has something to offer to everyone and at the very least should be given an opportunity.
