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.

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

When looking at colleges it is most important to think about what you want your experience to be like. If you want to get involved make sure the school has organizations you are interested in. If you want a nice place to live make sure there is satisfactory housing. As long as you are honest about what you want you won't be disappointed. Also, do plenty of research about the school and even talk to students at the school when you visit. They usually give you the most honest and dependable answers, the stuff the admissions office won't tell you.

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

Unless you are in a sorority or fraternity there is not much to do on campus.

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

The best advice I could give anyone is to focus on what you came to school to do. Dont allow friends or others aroud you distract you from what your money is paying for. College is supposed to be enjoyable but also productive. Pick a school that has at least one or two friends there. That sounds like bad advice but I went to a school where I knew no one and it is very difficult to make friends in college. I was always jealous of my friends who went to school with people that they knew.

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

Selecting the right college is hands down the biggest decision high school students and their parents will have to make. My best advice for students is to choose the college that simply feels like home, and NOT just attend one simply because your friends are. Secondly, get active! Participating in events around campus, such as volunteering, joining clubs, or even getting a job near campus can make your college experience all the more amazing. I have met some of my best friends in college from joining clubs my freshman year. Plus, it?s an awesome networking tool. It?s not every day one gets to go skiing 1,500 miles away in Colorado with their closest friends from 8 different colleges; its possible because we? re all active in YoungLife at our schools! It is said ?college is supposed to be the time of you?re life,? and as of right now I would have to agree. Once you have chosen the right school; get active, meet friends, have fun and make memories, but most importantly don?t forget to study!

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

I wish i had learned to properly study and manage my time.

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

We recently have gotten new lighting across most of campus, replacing old bulbs with new energy efficent ones. However, some parts of campus could use the new blubs, because they give off a yellowish/orange glow and do not provide adequate lighting at night--feels sketchy.

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

i would advise parents and students to take tours of the schools before applying and maybe spend the weekend in the area just to get a feel of the atmosphere. i would also advise them to ask actual students of the school any of the questions they may have to guarantee that they get open, honest answers.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of parking for people that are visiting or for people who would rather pay a meter than buy the expensive parking passes.

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

Best advice would be be sure that you are ready to be away from home, you can still attend school within the city and stay on campus, that way you'll still be out of your parents house, if going out of town parents let your child go without there car at least for the first year or semester. You make friends faster, learn the city better and stay out of trouble without a car. More then likely your roommates will become those long life friends make the most of that, they become your family away from home, they can help in every area staying on campus is the best way experience college. Last but not least develop long lasting, true relationship with your professors and their assistants, don't wait til the end of the semester when you need help to go to your professors. Enjoy because those four years will go by and then your in trouble because the good ole fun days are out the window, Real World here you come.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Most frustrating thing about school was the fact that i wasnt financially stabled and had to take out student loans that still didnt cover all of my tution expenses, but that frustration became motivation to finish.
