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

Making the most of the college experience is vital, but finding a good college is the most important thing. First, you as the student need to know what you want out of a college, whether it be a large community or small. You need to know what enviroment would be best for you. When looking at colleges see if they have your major, and look at their track record as a school. Submit your address for the school to send you imformation about their institution. Making the most of college is very important also, getting involved it vital. Join a club of your intrests and become a true member by attending meetings. Go to functions they may have for freshman to become involved in their class or in their field of study. But most of all enjoy the college experience.

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

As a senior in high school I was faced with the same question. Some of the important things to look for when trying to find the right college is credentials, just make sure that the school is accredited in the field that you would like to pursue even if your undecided look at the possibilities. One should also look at what kind of environment they would want to be around including things like peers, size of student body, greek life, sport life, etc. Also look at the housing arrangement for incoming college students that have decided to reside on campus. These things were essential to me and they helped me decide which school was the right one for me. One thing that I advise parents and students to take into consideration when making the final decision about college is the total cost of school. Sometimes students do not realize the cost of school, so make sure that you can afford it without taking out too many loans because they can quickly add up and lead you into high debt before you even graduate. Taking these things into consideration should help the students and the parents make the right decision.

start early is the best advice I could give. If money is a factor then you defintely want to start early, funds are out there you just have to know where to look. Make sure that this college fits your needs as an individual. If having big classes has always been your down fall then find a small school. Research is key.

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

I would first advise parents to seriously give thought as to whether their child is ready for the college experience. If the answer is yes then they need to sit down with their child and his/her guidance advisor to discuss how to find the right college for them. Consider what career choices your student wishes to persue then begin researching colleges and universites that offer degrees in that area. Criteria to consider in finding the right college are many: affordability, size of the campus, help for a learning disability, racial diversity( or lack thereof) etc. You and your student need to narrow your final choices down to no more 3 schools . You can get overwhelmed if you don't! Take a road trip(s) with your student to the school(s) they wish to attend. Make an appointment to meet with the department chairman, financial aid office, admissions, even the president of the university if possible (they don't bite). Making the most of your college experience is a balancing act. You must prioritize your life: academics first and everything else second. Unfortunately, I did not take my own advice and am now struggling to undo many, many mistakes.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

You should not attend this school if you have not developed good study habits, and is not serious about their education.

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

I tell them Tuskegee University is the only university in the U.S. that is a national historical site, how beautiful the campus is and how rich it is in African American history, i.e. Booker T Washington and George Washington Carver were educators there ( both buried on the campus), Tuskegee is the home of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, and subject of the disgraceful Tuskegee Experiment initiated by the United States government! I brag that the marching band is the "bomb"! (exceptional) and the football team is awesome. It has some good down home southern cooking in the cafeteria!!

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

Other than, Booker T. Washington founding the school and George Washington Carver- one of the greatest scientest of all - starting the science backgroung of Tuskegee University, our president- Dr. Bengimin Payton is a very conservative man with upstanding values.

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

The advice I would give is to make sure to do background checks on whatever college their looking into- as ex... student/teacher ratio, academic stats, rape/death toll, local sex offender count, STD/HIV stats...ect. To parents, these can be the most critical years in your child's life, so they need you more now than they ever did; don't abandon your child, instead become their best friend. To prospective students, the reason for college is to further your education; not to party your life away.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There is something at Tuskegee University for every kind of person. (Thats one of the reasons I love this school)

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

Parents and Students, please be advised, level of interest is definately IMPORTANT. Students, it is important to research the college or university you are interested in attending. Get invloved with social networks and ask students who currently attend your potential college about the ups and downs of their experience. Also, always ask questions. If you are clueless about certain topics, then your questions are not classified as "stupid" or "dumb". Parents, it is imperative that you make quality spending time with your child during their first semester as a senior in high school to discuss what their future goals will entail after graduation. Also parents, you must encourage your future college student and let them know the importance of mainaining a good Grade Point Average (GPA). The student's GPA will determine their eligibility for scholarships, grants, and the potential school's financial aid offer. Students, make sure you find the right college for you. Don't attend a largely populated school if you desire simplicity. Also, do not feel embarassed if you change you major more than two times .Your collegiate career is the most important part of life, make the best out of it. Be strong, be deterimined.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A potential Tuskegee student must be prepared to go through the official "HBCU Run-around". The "HBCU Run-around" is when the administrative staff and faculty tell you to go to certain buildings to recieve particular service. During the "HBCU Run-around", you will either walk into or pass buildings, valued with distinct and historic prestige in the intellectual movement of African-Americans. Also, a potential Tuskegee student must be able to stand strong when barriers get in the way of his or her destiny. This person must be stong willed and determined in order to suceed at Tuskegee University.

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

For bragging purposes, I tell my friends about the historic scenery and the fact that we have a hotel, on-campus. And since my school is a proclaimed National Landmark, there are a lot of things to talk about. I start off telling my friends about the buildings and how they were built by the students during the late 1890s, up to the early 1900s. Then I move on to Tuskegee's historic chapel, where national dignitaries have spoken. The George Washington Carver Museum is the #1 attraction for worldwide tourists, and finally, "The Oaks", home of Booker T. Washington.
