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.

Find a college that best suits your child's future plans. Without an education today it is very hard to find a job so a little bit of schooling is necessary now. Make sure it is a college that fits with your child's personality and their career choice.

Someone who wants to work hard and find a good career.

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

The best advise I can give is narrow your list down to 3 or 4 choices and visit them all. Find an advisor that you feel most comfortable at and find the school that makes you feel special. Don't rush the process of choosing the college you're gonna spend the next 4 years at.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The University of Findlay is best known for their Equestrian Studies, Pre-Vet, Animal Sciences, and Nuclear Medicine programs. The classes for these fields really prepare you for grad school or the real world. I am part of the Equestian and Art Education programs and it is really preparing me for life after college.

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

In my opinion, I would make an effort to visit the schools before deciding. I visited my university and fell in love with it, and I still love it here. Also, make sure you do not hold back, meet new people and make friends. It makes the whole experience so fun with people there with you along for the same ride.

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

I would have to say the only downside to this school is getting approved for off campus housing. There are a lot of circumstances that need to be met before one is allowed to live off campus. It is expensive to live on campus, pay tuition, and any other fees needed. To live off campus, it would make paying for the school not as hard. If they would be a little more lenient about living off campus it would be a lot better.

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

The University of Findlay offers great opportunities for students to become involved, develop friendships and succeed academically.

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

Students should definitely look at more than one college to obtain a broad understanding of what college is like. Asking numerous questions is very important, whether they are about financial aid, academics, or the social life on and off campus. If financial aid is a huge factor of chosing a college, always talk with a financial aid advisor because they will make sure you will be able to afford that particular school. After narrowing down the choices, make several visits to each college to get a feel of the atmosphere. Make sure the enviornment is comfortable and safe. Overnight visits are highly recommended. This option allows students to attend classes with upperclassmen and engage in a variety of activities. It is important for the school to offer extracurricular activities so students can be involved. Once the right school is chosen, make friends on the first weekend before classes begin. For the first few weeks of school, stay there and get involved. Many students want to go home. As a result, they are missing out on the opportunity to make new friends and engage in different activities. The main thing is study hard, have fun, and be involved!

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

The housing staff is very unorganized in placing students in on campus housing. It is required that one lives on campus until they are 22 years of age or if they live outside a 30 mile comuting radius. There are more students here than available housing so many students are told to find a place off campus and expected to move out in 2 days.

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

I would say let the student pick their major. Don't try to pressure them into anything. Chances are if you feel comforable on your tour then you will be comfortable at the school. If you feel uncomfortable they should go to a different school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The biggest things are the equestrian program, the pre-vet program and the pharmacy program. They are said to be very good programs and the school is very well known for them.

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

Number one would be to visit, and visit many different colleges. Looking at a variety of sizes, and atmospheres that all have the program you are looking for. Without stepping on campus, you will not truely know what you are getting into. Half the college experiance is the campuse life. Also, attend as many activities on campus as you can, esspecially the ones that your dorm floor can all attend. You can get to know the others on lyour floor and meet may new people throught those events, don't lock yourself in your room all the time. Get our and meet people.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who doesn't want a big school, and is good at finding things to do. The campus does have at least one event everyweekend, however, there isn't a whole lot to do in the town. But also wanting to have more of a personal connection in the school setting, the profs are very supportive and incourage questions and meetings when we need help.

Just not a great school. Kids really don't have to work hard here to do well.

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

Equine program and Pre-Vet were both offered, but the equine program was awful.

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

Visit and stay overnight if at all possible. Attend some classes as well and really get a feel for the campus before you decide.
