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

It may seem cliche, but these really are the best years of your life. I know that the reason I'm at college is to get a good education but the social experiences are what make college fun and interesting. I learn more from social interactions than I do from classrooms and I'm surprisingly comfortable with that notion. College is like true love: when you find the right one, you just know and it clicks. Don't settle for anything less than true love.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who wants to be in a big city. After the first year, you know everyone and eveyone one knows you...that includes any gossip even remotely related to you. Almost half of the campus is Greek because without it, there would be nothing to do.

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

I would recommend to perspective students and parents to take a tour of the campus. I am a tour guide for my university, and I believe that the tour is one of the most important aspects of the college selection process. With a tour perspective students get to see the campus through the eyes of a student, the tour guide. After a while many of the universities all seem the same on paper. But when students actually see the campus and the type of people which attend, then they can start to see if they would fit in or if they could see themselves going there our not. I believe that also talking to the student giving the tour gives a much needed perspective to possible students. The tour guide obviously likes the campus or else would not be giving tours. So teh possible student can talk to the current student to see if they would like the same aspects of the university that the current student does.

A lot of times, just simply by visiting the institution, it will be evident if you would be happy there. If you are extremely carrer focused, attend a well respected instiution. However, if you are not worried about how good the univeristy you attend is, find a college where you are more likely to be sucessful.

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

Choose a college that feels comfortable and one in which you know you could feel at home . If you have a specific major or area of study in mind make sure the college has all of the necessary requirements you need to complete your desired studies. When assessing the college, make sure an emphasis on the professors' level of involvment and interest with the students is present. Joining extracurricular activities is always a great way to make friends and make a more welcoming environment to be a part of. If the the tuition for the school is expensive and is going to be a stretch for your family to pay for, think hard about your decision because it could cause unneccessary tension in your family situation when you could be just as happy at another, less expensive institution. However, if you are sure that you could not feel at home at any other school, take all the measures towards receiving financial aid.

The classes are just the right size - the only large classes are some entry level science courses. The student to faculty ratio is amazing and through your first three semesters you can be really flexible with figuring out what you want to major in.

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

Think about the top three things you want and the top one thing you do not want in a college and find it. As long as you have those four aspects to hold onto, your college career will be great. Don't get caught up in the rush to make friends the first week of classes - just wait it out and soon you'll end up with the people that'll stay in your life long past graduation. Be sure not to become overwhelmed in figuring out what you want to do with your life, that's what college is for - not your first two weeks of freshman year. Most importantly, stay in touch with your family and best friends from back home, you'll need that base to lean on if things get rough.

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

It's pretty easy to get stuck in the "Trinity Bubble," which is fine for some people. However, you do have to put forth some effort to see what else is out there.

The poeple here are very tolerant of all kinds of people. Everything seems to go. I once witnessed a professor dressed in drag and strutting his stuff on the catwalk during a lesbian, gay, bi, and transvestite tolerance show.

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

The mental well being of your son or daughter is something that is often overlooked when looking for colleges. If your son or daughter dose not do well in new situations or away from home, then it might be best to choose a college that is within a few hours driving distance.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This is not a party school. If you are looking for a school that is heavy on the fraternities and sororities, then this is not the place for you. The campus is pretty quiet with students mainly spending their free time hanging out in small groups, playing computer games, or touring downtown San Antonio. Many student are involved in intramural sports where the focus is on fun.

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

As much as students think that college is about more than academics, that is the only part that counts. The attention that i get from professors that are experts in their field is invaluable. They should go to a small school and focus on making relationships with their professors, that will take them a lot farther than belonging to any fraternity or sorority.

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

The biggest thing when selecting a school is realizing many school are quite similar; and quite frankly you may be finding youself having trouble deciding between several. When confronting this situation realize you more than likely cannot make a bad decision. Visit each school, sit in on and class, and make sure you attend a social function; from there make your decesion and don't look back. College will be the greatest time of your life at many places, there isn't just one right fit.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those who are driven and want an diverse education in a fun city with people similar to them.

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

Student, know thyself. Albeit short, this phrase is rich and powerful and lends to making the most out of one's college experience. Knowing oneself means knowing one's interests allowing one to find the school where one can best develop and refine those interests, as well as discover new ones. Typically, in the process of refining interests through participation in groups, one forms strong friendships with people who may come from completely different walks of life but share a passion for the same interest. It is these friendships that contribute to the best college experience. Parents, encourage your children to believe in themselves. That is, encourage your children to pursue their interests. Do not let your own ambitions for your child cloud your child's personal goals. Ultimately, your child will need to be self-reliant and so allow your child to take responisbility and own their choices. The best thing you can do is to encourage your child to pursue their interests with a passion and work hard at it, whatever it may be. The most fulfilling choice is one that was chosen, worked upon, and achieved by oneself. Through teamwork, you can find the right college.

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

This school is full of conservative elitist rich kids, who don't like to socialize with people outside of their group. If you aren't Christian or in a frat/sorority, you won't have very many friends. There isn't much economic diversity on campus.

This school is much more welcoming than the other schools I considered. It is also more focused on its undergraduate students versus graduate students and research. Further, the class sizes and professor student ratios allow for strong and accessible one on one time with professors. The environment surrounding Trinity is beautiful, the weather is a bit bipolar at times but the scenery here is beautiful, lots of trees. It being a smaller campus makes it easier and faster to get around, nothing is more than ten minutes away. I love it!

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

The only piece of advice I would give parents and/or students is to make sure this is what the student wants, not what the parent, friend, or someone else has pushed onto the student. The key to success in college is to be content with where you are and the people and environment that surrounds you. If the student is unhappy at the university you are attending, I can guarantee they will not do well and probably fall into some kind of depression. So, no matter what you do or where you go, make sure it is what you want and that you are happy with that decision because it can make or break the next four years of your life. Good luck and live it up!!
