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.

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.

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

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

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

Make sure you/your student look into many different kinds colleges. Try to stay the night with someone on campus. When you find the school of choice, get involved! College isn't just about academics; it's about defining who you are as a person and as a student... Clubs, Greek Life, and other organizations can help mold you into what you will be come and you shouldn't pass on that oppurtunity. Most of all, don't be afraid to try something new. You never know who you'll meet or how that can totally change your view on life. Make the most of your college experience, you won't ever get the chance to get the same experience again. Oh, and parents, lighten up a bit. College is important, but your student finding out what they love (or what they hate) is far more imporant than your notions of what they like.

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

I wish I knew more about the surrounding community of Findlay.

Findlay is unique because it is so close-knit. Students get to know their classmates and professors very well, which is handy when it comes to work in the classroom. Often you see people you know. Students here build friendships that will last a lifetime.

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

First of all, to find the right college, one must visit several colleges that he or she is interested in. Parents need to be involved in this process as well. One needs to get a feel for different campuses and find out if that college offers his or her major. A student must feel comfortable on campus, whether it is just walking around or talking with other students who go there or with professors. College is one's second home, and he or she must feel like they are at home. To make the most of one's college experience, one must be proactive. One must be confident, willing, and eager to meet other students to build healthy relationships, which may help him or her in the future. Also, ask questions! Do not be afraid to ask professors or faculty workers about something if you are confused. They will only want to help you. Last of all, have fun! Studying hard is obviously expected in college, but you need to let your stress out once in a while. Most colleges offer tons of activities that are sure to reduce stress, so take advantage of them!

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

I believe the worst thing about my school is the housing policy. We are required to live on campus for the first three years unless you are 22 years old, have a senior status, or live with 30 miles of campus. Most colleges let students live off-campus after the first year. This is just a way for the college to make more money because it is very expensive to live on campus.
