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

Take your time and find the college that is right for you. Don't just choose a college because of the rooms or the town that it is in. Doing this will only make you miserable when you attend the school. Don't give up on a college just because the price is too high. Most likely, there will be a lot of financial aid available. When you are at the school, stay the weekends and don't party too hard. You want to remember your school for more than just the parties. Don't be afraid to go up to new people and get acquainted. They most likely won't bite and will be friendly. The people around you are the same as you - wanting to know other people. Work hard but make time to have fun sometimes.

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

I wish I would have known that the job placement was not really done. I wish I would have known that the dorms and the new apartments were not going to be worth the money. I wish that I would have known that it would rain so much. And I wish that I would have known that it would be so easy to lose a professor.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who attend Trine University should like to learn by reading articles. If the student gets annoyed easily, he or she should not attend this school. A student who attends this school should be able to think outside the box yet have common sense. Students who attend this school should be open to new experiences and like a small town setting. People who are against people drinking should not come here. Athletes tend to do very well at this school.

This school is small and friendly with the only downside of not being able to find many other fun activities to do on campus.

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

I would advise parents and/or students to visit each school that he/she is looking to attend. I would also advise them to figure out exactly how much it would cost for them to go to each school that they are looking to attend and to look into the kinds of scholarships and grants that are offered at each school. Lastly, I would suggest that parents and/or students interveiw or talk to a student from each of their prospective schools to get an idea of what they think of the school and to see if they can give any helpful advice and choosing a school.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about this school is the professor to student ratio and how helpful and available the professors are.

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

Look at class sizes, smaller classes are better for me. Look into what the campus offers for students on weekends and during the week for social events.

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

More about coaches, and how good teachers were and how much we learn.

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

Fun place to be at, small class sizes which means teachers know your name and say hello to you in halways and around campus. I know a lot of people here and like everyone here.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of the people I have met have been nothing but friendly. I do not recall ever meeting someone here that I do not get along with. People are laid back and always willing to meet someone new. The campus is nice and small, too, so once you have met someone, you will usually find yourself seeing them again and saying "hi" to them in the hallways; you will not be forgotten.

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

My advice for prospective students would be to make a thorough search when looking at schools. Students will hear it from their parents, school counselors, and anyone else that gives them advice, so it may sound clich?, but it is the best advice I have received. If there is a school you like, visit it. Apply. There is no such thing as applying to too many schools; you can always turn down a school, but if you choose not to apply and change your mind later, it may be too late. Also, very importantly, talk to the students on campus. This will result in the most valuable information you can receive, because if you go to that school you will be with those students, and will most likely share their thoughts and feelings about that school. I have talked to many college students who regretted the choice they made after realizing how poor their program is, or how poor of a reputation their field has with very few jobs and low salary. Talking to students going through that will open your eyes and help you make the right decision. The best advice out there really is to simply investigate first.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

This college focuses a lot on their engineering program. Therefore, it is the best one here, and other programs tend to suffer from it. While our science department is in the process of improving, I would definitely recommend a pre-med student or music major to find a school better fitted for them. Almost all of our programs are constantly on the move, but most of them pale in comparison to the engineering program.

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

At Trine Unviersity, formaly Tri-State University, the most unique thing is the campus itself. To start off with classes are only about 30 or so people which makes class time a little bit easier when a student is confused in a subject. Another unique factor is our campus is growing! Each year something new is added. Within the last two years 6 new apartment style dorms were built and 2 new building for recreational activitys. So this school is extremely unique from any other college I have ever visited. Its also a very relaxing home enviornment to be in.

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

The best advise I could give to a parent and/or student about finding the right college would be to get your name out to as many colleges in your range of schools. The best way to find the right college is to get accepted everywhere you can and then visit all of them. Don't rule any of them out either, until you have compaired Financial aid packages and seen the campuses. Then as you go on, all you need to do is rule out the one that are too far away or the ones that may not give you any Financial aid awards. As you narrow down the colleges your dream school will begin to slowly sneak out of the pile. When you have it narrow down to 4 or so schools make another visit to all that is left! Visiting is the best way to get to know your schools. Then after visiting again your mostly going to have a really good idea on where your going to want to go. If not visit again and keep on comparing Financial aid until you feel like your making the correct choice.

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

I would tell students looking at colleges, to ignore where their friends are going to school. The only thing that is important is that the school you plan on attending fits you as an individual. The schools your friends goto might not be the best fit for you, while fitting their friends perfectly. That's the beauty of going to college, you get to meet a bunch of new people. You just have to go to the best school for you and then get out there. Be outgoing. If you are not outgoing how will you ever meet new people, at school? Meeting and making new friends is one of the best perks of going to school.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about school is that if you need help you can get it. I like this because in other schools it seemed harder to get help. While here they have help centers open everyday, at convient times for the students, not necessarly for professors working them.

Trine University is a great place to grow as a person, there are so many clubs to join and everyone is willing to lend someone a hand.

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

I believe a lot of students go to schools and transfer out after the first semester or year because they have not done there research on the school. There are many websites out there that have information about schools and there are even a few books that have a lot of great information you cannot find on the web. I would start off with a list of schools you would like to consider and slowly cross off schools after you do research on them. I started with a list of 20 schools then made a list of things I want from a school (ex: size, sports, average gpa, location, do they have your major, etc.) After countless hours of looking over every aspect of each school I narrowed it down to four. Then I took a campus tour of those schools and stayed over night with a member of the golf team (I do play golf), I believe not only visiting the school but staying a night or two there is very important.

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

Most people believe that college is all about having a great experience, well, you'll get that no matter what school you attend. The most important thing is to find a school that will give you an affordable way to get the education to lead you to a career you want to do. The education comes first, everything else, such as good times and fun, will follow. If you can get a job in the career field that you want, you will be much happier with your life. If you are confused when you start college, go to a big school, by the time you figure out what you want to do, you'll still be able to transfer to a school that specializes in that field. The education should always come first, but use that time to find out who you are as well. Develop the habits that will be most useful to you after life in college. Be who you are, no matter where you go, there will be people who share the same feelings and interests as you.

What's unique about your campus?

specialized teachers help out their students the most.

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

the way the administration runs you around when you have a problem. They seem to think that the school is perfect and that there is no need for them to actually do their job
