Students need to find the right school to suit their needs, and best educate them in their career field in life. Parents should help their kids find a school that is affordable so their student won't have a lot of debt when they graduate.

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

I would highly recommend that parents and/or students first look closely at any and all opportunities to get an inside peek of the college. Many schools offer the opportunity to preview the campus before attending. This will give the prospective student the opportunity to get a feel for the college environment. Not only this, but it also gives the opportunity for questions and concerns to be answered. How thoroughly the school answers these questions is a good indicator of the investement the staff and administration are willing to make in their students. I would also encourage a prospective student to look closely at the academics offered. I have watched as many students have entered their college education uncertain of what opportunities lie ahead for them. Not only this, but they are just beginning (within their Freshman year) to experience some freedoms they have not yet known. As they do this, they are discovering "who they are" and beginning to find outlets to express this. I would encourage any serious college student to wisely declare their major; assurring that it is a field that they will truly thrive in.

My classmates are extremely driven and spiritually gifted individuals who want to use their talents and education to bring glory to God.

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

I would tell them to start early in their searching out of colleges. Sit down and really contemplate what you're looking for in a college. VISIT!! There is no better way to know about the college than to go there, and don't go on a school sponsored weekend. They pull out all the big stops then but that usually isn't what the college is really like. Take some time to get to know students that go there and go on an off weekend when you can see what the campus normally looks like. Then take that experience and sit down to seriously think about whether or not that college would be the best fit for you. Make your decision wisely. Don't just go with the first college you see. Visit all prospective schools if possible and then weigh the pros and cons of each against each other. That will help you make the decision of which college is the best for you and then you probably won't have to transfer and go through all the hassle that comes with that. Be educated is really the best thing you can do.

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

I wish I had known how little there was to do around here. This town isn't exactly suited for your typical college student. Its boring and there's really nothing to do besides go out to eat and go shopping at Wal-Mart.

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

Finding the right college can be a extraordinary experience; as one plans for the next four years and possibly the rest of his or her life nerves start trembling. As decisions are made, one hopes that the finest college is picked for the best experience. The best advice that can be given to an incoming freshman is this: choose a college that describes the student?s personality in environment, academics and personal future goals. The environment will set the scene for the new student. If one wants a fast-paced and artistic feel, then an urban area would be a perfect fit. A book-loving coffee drinker may enjoy the quietness of the mountains. The academic spectrum of college is obviously huge. A student should base his or her decision on the diversity of classes and opportune majors. A college decision should be based on academic reputation that has influenced students of past. Personal future goals should encourage a conscious decision. One should look at the opportunities the college offers post graduation, and effective classes that prepare one for prospect realities. The college?s environment, academics and the student?s idea of future goals will encapsulate an unbelievable college experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This college is a Bible College, therefore I would say only Christians should come here. And when I say Christian, I mean those who are actually living out what they believe. I say this because we have Bible courses that are mandatory, and try to make this community one that is in unity with what Jesus Christ stands for.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who is not interested in spiritual growth, accountability or Jesus probably should not attend this school. This school obvioulsy does not look down upon or hate people like that, they are just not tolerant of a "typical college student lifestlye." Those who live a lifetstyle opposite of what Christ teaches probably would not get along with, or agree with what we learn.

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

I would have to say that the best thing for a prospective student to do in looking for a college is for them to go with the place where they have the most peace about attending. Once they get to school, a freshman will find that since they picked the right school they don't have any regrets about it.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best know for the water fall on campus and it's missions program. It has one of the best cross-cultural programs in the US.

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

I would recommend that students go to the school for a visit during the regular school year. Not during campus preview because then you get a more accurate view of the school. Also spend a night in the dorm if you can. Look for a school that has the majors that you are hoping to have, if you are unsure then it might be wise to go to community college and get your core classes out of the way first. It is much less expensive that way. It also prevents needing to transfer because the school does not have your intended major. It is also really important to know what size of school you would like. If you are more interested in smaller classes and knowing the people on campus then you should look for smaller schools. If you enjoy big classes and lots of activities and sports then look for a bigger college. Area is big too, do you like urban settings or rural settings? Do you want to be close to home or far away. These should all be considered in looking for a school.

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

There is little to do off campus. I f you do not like the outdoors there is only bowling, church, and Wal-Mart.

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

Choosing a college is a lot like buying a house. The first thing that you do when searching for the right house is to knock on the front door and wait to be welcomed home. The same thing is true when searching for the right school. It is wise to submit your applications and see who invites you to their school. When looking for a house, there is so much more than the four walls that make up the exterior. You must look to see if it fits correctly in size, curriculum, beliefs, and community. It is important to look beyond the buildings themselves, and get to know the people, programs, and values of the school when making one?s choice. Spend time getting to know the faculty and students. Once you have made your decision of which school to attend, it is important to not assume that you will learn from books alone. The relationships, mentors, and experiences that you will have make up a large part of your educational experience. You will be at the school for the next 2-4 years, and it is important to not only live in the community, but to thrive and invest.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the best thing about this school is to be the envrionment in which we get to live 4 years of our lives. The faculty, staff, and students all contribute to this envrionment as well as teh surrounding area in which we live. There is a strong commitment to loving God and loving others. We get to see that lived out every day in very practical ways, through our professors caring for us, the staff demonstrating godliness, and the students working together to serve oneanother and teh community. We really are a good example of the body of Christ.

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

I wish I would have known how wonderful living in a community like this would be. That would have made it less difficult for me to move away from everything that I knew. I would have spent a lot more time investing myself in learning to be a part of a community, rather than prepare only myself to move away to school. Living with others is really what makes or breaks your college experience.

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

Your college experience is one you will keep with you the rest of your life. Find a campus where you can thrive, where you can feel like you can make an impact on the people around you and get the best education possible. Look into the housing, see if that is a place where you can feel comfortable and really connect with the people around you. Make sure that your school will train you in the best possible way so that you can meet your future goals. Finding a school that can meet social needs and scholastic needs is essential! There needs to be a strong sense of community and school spirit to get you through those times when the papers and assignments are rolling in and you just feel crazy. To have friends and a campus that you love will make your experience so enjoyable and make you never want to graduate!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about our school is that it is so community focused. People here really care about each other and look out for each other. It is awesome to feel that you are connected with everyone on campus, upper and lower classmen alike. It is great to head into the cafeteria or into the gym and know that you will be included in whatever is taking place. This is a small enough campus that each and every person can feel that they fit in and that they belong.

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

The worst thing about our school is that we are kind of in the middle of nowhere. It is easy to become bored because there aren't many exciting city-type aspects. So you have to learn to make fun for yourself and get our there to make new friends and find new activities to become involved in.

Describe the students at your school.

Almost everyone is caring and accepting, willing to reach out to other people to befriend them and love them, and a lot of the students are enthusiastic and eager to learn, rather than having a negative attitude towards classes and homework.

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

First, I would recommend having at least a general idea of the things that the student is potentially interested in studying, so that they could pick a college with a wide variety of majors that would interest the student. It would also be a good idea to have an idea of what size college the student would like to attend, and what kind of atmosphere they want to be a part of. Once these things have been considered, more than anything, I would recommend visiting the college. It is the only way to really get a feel for the school, and to thoroughly answer any questions. To make the most of the college experience, I recommend balance. It is foolish to completely abandon school work for friendships, but it is also foolish to completely abandon friendships for schoolwork. Both are vital aspects of the college experience, and both will have a significant impact on the rest of the student's life. Also, if you view classes as an opportunity to learn something helpful and interesting, they will be much more beneficial, while homework will be much less stressful.

What's unique about your campus?

The Faculty and Staff. They are committed to helping the students in any way that they can, whether by going far above and beyond in securing loans and scholarships, or professors being readily available outside of class, or simply in their efforts to help us grow spiritually, both by setting an example in their own lives and by challenging us in that area, as well as challenging us academically.

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

College is so much more than education in a classroom and getting a degree. It is a crucial part in students' lives because so much of college changes and defines who they are and how they percieve themselves currently and in the future as part of society. Everyone changes in some way when they go off to college, and the type of college is what instigates those changes. When a high school student is looking for a college, they need to evalute what direction they will to go in life. This is ultimately what makes students decide on a college but another crucial factor that I would suggest examining is the community that the school has and how it shapes the character, not just the minds, of the students. Schools need to produce educated individuals, but those individuals can learn so much more than what is outlined in a text book. College needs to produce individuals of intellect and character, willing to be a participant in the American society. These two aspects should be asked of the student when deciding on the right college.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I am always bragging about the atmosphere that is created by the staff, faculty and the students. The community that is created helps to form your identity and is a source of strength, inspiration and encouragement. The loyalty, friendship, trust, wisdom, mentoring, leadership and love is something that is unparalled on other campuses. I feel that my education is not just in the classroom context but it is also within the community context of the campus where we are living life together.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about the school is when the atmosphere that you love is disrupted. This is a natural part of college and life in general, but it still does not take away the frustration. For example, there are students who do not wish to participate and be an active part of out campus community and surrounding community. Their selfish distain for others is an aspect that I find very discouraging.
