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

When choosing a college the student should first look at the school that best fits the degree they plan on attaining. This first step should give the student a short list of colleges. Then the student should look at the price of attending the prior mentioned colleges, this cost analysis allows the see which college is the best buy. The final deciding factor should always be a visit to the college, in which the student gets a feel of the environment (social life, teachers, accommodations and the city in which the university is located) of the university. Thank you for your consideration for this scholarship Sincerely Jason Haraway

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

Pick a field of interest and find out what the school has to offer in that field. Some schools are more oriented in certain departments than others. This does not mean that you have to pick your major yet. Think about if you would rather live at home or on campus. Visit the school and decide if it has a good learning atmosphere as well as suitable campus housing. Keep in mind that the total costs should be affordable and that you should be able to pay off any student loans on time. Also see if the school accommodates all of your needs such as a special diet or any disabilities. Apply to more than one school of your interest and see how much money in scholarship each school is willing to award. Do not pick a school just because of your favorite football team, unless you are planning to play on the team and know that you will make the tryouts. Education comes before athletics. Finally analyze all of the criteria and pick a school that will guarantee you the best experience and a valuable degree.

What's unique about your campus?

UAH is a fairly small school, so everyone knows each other and the students can get more attention and help from the faculty.

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

Pick what is best for you. Do not do what your friends are doing. You will make new friends, friends that will last a long time. The way to be the most involved is to go Greek. Be in the sorority or fraternity that you fit into. Your sisters or brothers will be your life long friends, and most likely be in your wedding. Enjoy it, do not rush through it. Take it all in and grow because of it.

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

I suggest that in order to find the right college for a particular student, the student and parents research several different schools in depth. The colleges that they look at should definatley have acredited programs in the student's desired major. This ensures that the student will be taken seriously in the modern competative job market. The size of the school should also be taken into consideration when choosing the right college. It is easy for professor to overlook a particular student in a large school, so if a student needs help academically, a smaller school is probably better. Another thing that should be taken into consideration is the social activities that students engage in at the campus. If most people at the campus have similiar social intrests as the prospective student it is more likely that the student will make friends easier. Making good friends quickly is very important and can make the difficult transition to college alot easier. Ofcourse these are just a few of the issues that a person faces when choosing a college, but these are the issues that I feel have the most impact on a student's success at a particular university.

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

I wish that I had known more about what people did around the campus for fun. Students here often just enjoy playing video games and watching tv. I like going hiking and camping.

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

As a student looking for the right college for you, it is important to do your research and find a handful of colleges in a variety of locations with different pros and cons. These different schools can offer a broad range of possibilities for you to experience, so once you choose these core schools, visiting them and seeing where you feel most at home is the best idea. Once you find your school, get yourself involved in student activities to make those long term friendships that you will always remember. Find those friends that will encourage you and push you to do your best. Most of all, enjoy yourself! Do not stress over the little things, just try your hardest and know that you will succeed if you put your mind and heart into it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who attend this school should be dedicated to learning and working hard to achieve their goals yet open for having fun times with friends.

Science related majors and engineering. We are known for being right next to research companies, where students find jobs right out of college.

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

People should not go to college until they are ready. I went to college immediately after graduation and quickly discovered that I was mentally and emotionally unprepared. Success in high school does not always translate into success in college, especially for students who did not have to work hard to make good grades. In hindsight, I would have either taken a year off to work or enrolled in our local community college. Community college is slightly more demanding than high school but less demanding than a four-year school, thereby giving students a taste of college without overwhelming them. Starting at community college is also a wise financial decision because students can earn credits for core classes at a fraction of the cost. Tuition at community college is far more affordable than four-year schools, and most of the credits can be transferred to another university. Also, community colleges have more flexible class schedules to accommodate working students. This means that students can easily find a full time job while they are enrolled full time in college. After two years of community college, most students will be much better prepared than high school graduates to succeed in four year universities.

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

The worst thing about this school is that it is part of the Alabama education system. Education is funded by sales tax; when the economy goes into recession (as it is now), money for education dries up. That means that the universities have to raise tuition and cut costs. Also, Alabama does not have an education lottery like our neighbors in Tennessee and Georgia. This would be a great way to help pay for school, but our citizens have voted against the education lottery. Most Alabamians are more interested in maintaining low taxes than improving the quality of our education.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I believe that UAH is an excellent school and I would recommend this school to anyone. This school is especially great for engineering students because of our university's relationship with employers in the surronding area. I am a history student, and I am very proud of our liberal arts department. Our faculty is extremely gifted, well educated, and hard working, and most professors seem to genuinely enjoy teaching. So whether you are looking for an education in the "practical studies" or liberal arts, UAH is a fantastic choice.

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

I would advise parents to visit as many colleges as possible in order to compare the schools of interest. The college experience is completely up to the student.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Everyone is welcome at UAH. There is something for everybody.

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

UAH is a very difficult university acedimic wise. I would say that I brag about being a three year engineering student.
