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

I believe that students and parent should visit as manu colleges as possible just to be sure that the campus is of their best interest. Parent should check out the financial aid deparment and students should look closely at on campus housing. Over all a student should weight their option from different universities and pick the one they feel will make them the happiest and allow them to focus on their work and stil have fun.

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

Visit lots of schools. Don't be set in your mind where you want to go without doing so. Don't pick a school because of the football team or the parties. Pick a school that you feel can provide you an atmosphere in which you can thrive academically, socially, and culturally. Parents: Don't pressure your child into attending your alma mater, but let them be their own person. The aspects of college that you sought when looking for a college to attend aren't necessarily what your child values. Students: once you are in college, don't take anything for granted because it will be over before you can blink an eye. Play a club sport, join a special interest organization, and pledge a fraternity or sorority. Focus on schoolwork, but remember that communication skills developed through your social activities will be the most valuable supplement to your degree that you could ever possess. Who you know is as important as what you know. Most importantly: USE YOUR RESOURCES. The only thing I regret is not taking advantage of free tutors, writing labs, and other great resources that could have benefited my college experience.

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

I would visit as many colleges as you can before you make your choice. That way, you get to see how things are at small and large colleges and which ones seem to fit you better. Making the most of your college experience is all about getting out there. College is, in addition to getting an education, about expanding as a person and meeting new people. Join a sports team or a club on campus. The number one thing that everyone has to do in order to succeed in college is GO TO CLASS. Most of the people I know that are struggling neglect to go to class like they should. Most professors are very understanding and appreciate your continued attendance and effort in their class and will often take that into consideration if you have a borderline grade.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the teachers. I have encountered very few "bad" teachers. Almost all of the teachers that I have had have been amazing. They were always avaliable for questions and were more than willing to work with you about extra credit assignments and attendance issues. You could tell that they really cared about you being there and wanted you to succeed.

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

The worst thing about my school is their admissions office. A lot of the people that work there seem to be ill-informed and have a short temper when you have questions. I have been told many conflicting things about class pre-requesites and requirements. Questions are never answered the same across the board. You really need to know who to talk to about what to get things taken care of.

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

Make sure to VISIT EACH CAMPUS before deciding! Check out what types of activities occur throughout the school year by talking to current students. Ask what type of students the university setting caters to most. RESEARCH to find out what types of financial aid are available. Do not be close-minded and be sure to HAVE A BACKUP PLAN. Pick a VARIETY of schools to apply to then make a decision based on the STUDENT'S best interests. Once enrolled, ALWAYS add an extra class every semester in case you decide to drop a class. Also, if you leave home for school and are not a morning person, don't sign-up for morning classes because your parent IS NOT THERE TO WAKE YOU UP anymore!!! Trust me, I know from EXPERIENCE. If living on campus, GET OUT OF THE DORMS! That can't be stressed enough. Find people to INTERACT with and MAKE FRIENDS. Remember to ENJOY life while in college because, afterwards, all that's left is work.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone that loves doing outdoors activities would thoroughly enjoy this campus. Also, if they like to hang out with friends or occasionally go out for a night on the town would find this school perfect.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that is an excessive party goer should not attend this school. Someone that doesn't like nature or being in a relatively small-town setting should not attend. It's also not the best social environment for people that aren't inclined to go out and make friends on their own.

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

In finding a college, my best advice is not to worry about where you end up. Every college offers something unique and a place for you or your student to fit in. If after a while, one college doesn't fit, try another. You will end up at the institution that is best for you. In making the most of college, my advice is to be open-minded. Don't say no to a person, an organization, a place because of preconcieved notions-Check them all out and then make a decision based on your first hand observations. College is about exploration and self-exploration; By saying no to something, you are denying yourself an oppurtunity to discover.

What's unique about your campus?

It's a great small university in a fantastic town. It's a beautiful city and the people are friendly. If you are looking for a university that is in a city with some culture and in a beautiful setting, this is it.
