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

Make sure that where ever you decide to go it is somewhere where you think you will actually be happy. Somewhere where you feel that you can grow as a person and intellectually. Also, somewhere that is affordable for you or your parents price range. Also, always investigate their financial aid process and their schoalrship process. Have a major already decided once you figure out school you want to attend, it will make things a lot easier. Try not to let the party sences overtake you and remove your attention from what you go to college for. Make sure that your values are strong enough for you to make it through the daily life of a college student. Lastly, at the end of the day make sure you enjoyed college and learned needed skills. Make sure you can look back and smile and wish you could do it over again.

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

The worse thing is that some people have to come to college with out a college or mature attitude towards life. Although one may come across such people in many other surrounds and many other schoools.

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

The only unique thing about UAB that I find alarming is that they take as much money as they can from the students. If a student cannot pay, they will not bend the rules. Instead, they give the option of a loan and a late fee.

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

The most important thing is to find a college that best suits you. Although money should be a factor, it should never be the first factor. Explore the clubs, academics, and housing throughly. Always make a pro and con list for each college and make sure that there are going to be people there like you. Colleges like to say that there is always going to be a variety of people there and that students can always find friends just like them. They are wrong, many colleges do not have a big variety and if they do, it's usually extremely hard to find someone just like you. Try to relate yourself to something the college has - a club, organization, whatever, so you will know that there will be a place for you to fit in and enjoy your college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about UAB is that there are many people to help out with our "A" plans and "B" plans. They show us a variety of options and always make sure that we understand that we have to prove ourselves to the hiring companies or colleges.

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

Choose a school that fits the type of surroundings you would like and will give you the best possible degree for your major. A great school isn't necessarily an expensive school. Learn to deal with setbacks because they will happen. The more determined you are the more likely you are to deal with these setbacks and still achieve academically. There is more to college than just books, so be sure to meet people and have fun. Make connections that can help you later in life. A lot of times it still is about who you know. Internships and co-operative learning is a great way to get job experience, and if you already have to work like I did, a good way to work your way through school. If you do plan on joining any organization, make sure it is beneficial and actually suits you. The organizations you affiliate with will be used to represent you as a person and vice versa. Just remember that as long as you keep trying you will get there eventually.

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

Visit colleges and find the one that fits you. Do not go because your friends go or your parents went there. Also go to a school that specializes in your major. It may be a little hard to do the work but the degree will be well worth your hard work. Do not look at one thing from a school such as greek life or football teams and let that decide either.Also check the surrounding areas for attractions because no one wants to go to a school that is not entertaining. Talk to people on social networking sites that attend the school to gain a better understanding of what goes on there. Finally, remember this college is what you make it. If you go expecting it to be boring it will. Be active and make friends through social organizations but remember your main purpose is to graduate.

It is academically challenging, career orientated, and a door that can lead to many great opportunities.

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

To find the right college, a parent and child must act as a team. The child will have to find a college whose atmosphere and environment are fitting to them and will help them not only prepare them for their life careers but also help them to mature and grow as an individual. The parent will have to act as a guide because they truly know their children better than the children know themselves, though most kids of my generation will try to argue that. Most parents have already traveled down the college road, some being amongst the first of many to even step foot inside a collegiate building or classroom. They were the ones who helped pave the college journey for myself and others of my generation. Parents can tailor-fit their children's college choices, helping to narrow down their choices based on things such as distance, cost of attendance, special major fields, etc. Both must be involved in this process, from researching prospective schools to the application process to the move-in day.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who isn't seeking to be in the medical field, whether it be optometry, dentistry, health professions, public health. UAB is one of the top leading medical schools so it would be a waste of time for someone who wants to be a lawyer or a movie director or a teacher.

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

Parent/student before you make a quick decision you should spend as much time as possible observing the environment of your school(s) of interest, even if the choice is a couple of years away; because this will be the institution where the most of your money and/or time will be spent. The graduate will ultimately be the product of his/her environment.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing I like about UAB is it's broad field of studies.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who does not like large and busy environments should not attend this school.
