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

The best advice I wwould give, that I did not use myself was to tour the university beforehand. I believe the student and parent should get a feel for the environment and the people in it. Take a day to observe the other students. Decide if the university is a place you would like to be.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any student who is not willing to work hard and apply themselves. Someone who isn't open to diversity and different people.

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

I would advice students and parents to absoluetly tour the campus and campus life before making a final decision. You don't have to spend several days there just do the orientation tour (which usually consist of a present student taking you around the campus) and afterwards maybe getting a bite to eat and asking locals about the college and the social life at the college. Just asking a few simple questions might make or break your decision about the college. But students just live and love the experience and make the best of everything! Good Luck!

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

I wish I would've know that the experience of going to college was going to be so full-filling. I do my best to encourge all younger students in grade school to keep there mind open about college. I feel like everyone should experience going to school and being as successful as they can be!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Oddly enough, my school is known for its beautiful housing. It also has a great program for Education majors.

No matter the institution, college is work. choose a college that has a lot of scholarships available, good retention and graduation rates. Base your choice on size, location, and the academic programs in which you're interested. Housing is important because if you plan to live away from home, you have to live on campus. and you would want to be comfortable.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

College is only frustrating when your time management skills are poor.

Look at academics and class sizes when you get into major related courses. Dont be afraid to pick schools with more choices on weekends, otherwise you will find your child at a house party more times than not.

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

Finding the right college is very important for students and parents. I would suggest the students and parents sitting down and picking 2 or 3 colleges in a safe area that the student is interested in. Then I would suggest that they go to the campus tours. Learning about the school, area, and all that it has to offer is very important. The student should remember that education is first at all times. Have fun but be safe and always remember where you are.

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

Working and going to school in order to pay for housing.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you don't like small cities or a clam environment this school is not for you.

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

The actual city is the best part compared to other schools. I attended Knoxville first, and Chattanooga just fits me so much better. The school is just the right size and drinking is not the only college activity available. You can rock climb, hike, bike, get out on the river, take a carriage ride through downtown, visit the sharks at the aquarium, or just drive up to signal mountain and sit on a perch and look out over Chattanooga.

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

I would suggest that the students really look around and consider more than one option. It is important for the school to feel right otherwise you can spend time depressed and perform poorly as a result. I would suggest leaving as soon as possible if the first college is not right because the longer you wait the harder it is for credits to transfer and the more time you waste on being unhappy. I would suggest that parents really listen to what their children have to say and at the same time use their knowledge from life experience to help guide their children in making the right decision.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who appreciates the beauty of the city; from the old downtown buildings to the endless span of mountains. It is a diverse place that can be enjoyed by dreamers and deep thinkers. People who are accepting and open minded and enjoy art..

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

Students: Go where you are comfortable. If you find a place where you can see yourself fit in just apply. Don't let your family/friends pressure you in to going to a certain type of school. In the end you might regret it, because you are following someone esle's dream and not yours. Listen to the advice that is giving to you. Listening doesn't mean you have to do exactly that but do take under consideration when making your decision. Try not to get frustrated or overwhelmed with the small details, please know thati t will all work out. Parents: Trust your students. Please don't try to force anything upon them. Just try to guide and give advice in the right direction. Please be totally honest with your student about any they ask. Do not do everything for them when applying to college. If you start helping too much in the beginning they will continue to need you throughout school. College is the perfect time for your student to grown up and be responible for themselves.

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

No, not at all. Even though this was not the dchool I wanted to go to at first, I was very comfortable as soon as I arrived.

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

Advice I will give students about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience, is to make sure they are choosing the college that they want to attend, and that they know what they want out of the college life. They should know that college is not fun unless they make it fun. They also should not chose college based on the location or how much parties there are, they should chose college based on what type of education is being offered.

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

My advice to student preparing to choose the right college is think about what is important to you before you decide which college to attend. If you have the opportunity stop by the college during a non visitation time in order to get a true essence of the school. Talk to professors and upper-classmen in order to get the best advice about the quality of the school. Also, talk to a student who isn't employed by the school, because they're trained to promote the school. Remember the school you choose effects the people you meet and opportunities you will have in the future. My advice to parents is trust that you have taught your child well and allow them to choose the school they want. Guide them if they ask for help but do not make the decision for them. If you force your child to go to a school that they are not sucessful or happy with, they will end up resenting you. If your child is searching for colleges, you probably have taught them well.
