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

Start with a small college for your basic classes and then transfer to a larger college. Check out the larger colleges find out which will fit your needs educationaly as well as personal needs. Make sure you are acquainted with the layout of the college and the time it would take to get from one building to the next when college is in full swing . This will come in handy when you schedule your classes fom year to year. Get to know the teachers. Check with students to see what the teachers are requiring so you can be prepaired. Go expecting to be challenged.

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

The lack of Tutors in the advanced Math field as well as the hours of the tutoring . Several students work and can not go to tutoring during the 8 to 4 scheduled times. This make a hardship on the students with other jobs and with a family. This is a field in which we have a great demand but not many who have the ability to tutor in the higher Maths.

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

I would apply for numerous scholarships and grants as possible, my advice would be to make sure I stay very well organized, determined, stay positive , being focus, and studying and writing for college is a necessity. Spend less money and stay away from the loans, and credit cards, and excessive spending. Prepare and challenge yourself. And my main goal would be to graduate in top of my class. Make sure I get a Bachelor degree. I would stay around positive people as well. Listen to all adults advice.

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

I would tell myself not to skip class because it isn't like high school where if you miss it's not really a big deal, just make up the work and you're done. If you miss a class in college, you miss valuable lectures and class disussions that would help you out significantly on the tests. There isn't a whole lot of homework so it makes it tempting to skip class, but don't skip. It's not worth it and you're paying them to teach you so why would you not show up? I would tell myself that the tests are a lot harder than they are in high school and to study as soon as you get the material instead of cramming the night before. That doesn't work like it does in high school. There is a lot more material and it's more of do you really understand the material, more practical uses of the material instead of just reciting what the teacher said.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There are no dead days before final exams begin. The parking situation is not very good and it's hard to find a spot to park.

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

If I coiuld go back to advise myself when I was in high school, I would tell myself to relax. It would have been nice to know that I don't have to be responsible for everyone and everything. It would have been nice to know that there would be a day when I wouldn't have to help pay my parents bills. It would have been nice to know that my siblings were going to be ok when I left for college. In general, I could have really benefited from knowing how to relax, and knowing that the world wouldn't stop when I started to take care of myself and nopt everyone else.

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

The advisors are not quite on top of things. You have to send multiple emails and visit them several times just to get one thing acomplished.

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

The teachers make a point to get to know you, and help you.

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

My school is small enough to where you can park and walk to almost every building on campus and still make it to class on time. But large enough to provide numerous opportunities. Other schools tend to be so big that it can be hard for students to make it to where they need to be in a timely manner and it can disrupt the learning process and focus.

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

My advice for students would be to take a leap of faith. Even if you feel like college isn't right for you, take a chance. It's amazing the opportunities and chances you'll have once you walk on the campus. Take time to enjoy your college experience and meet new people while still planning for you future. It's never too early nor too late to better yourself and college is just the thing to do that. My advice for parents would be don't worry about money. There is plenty of help out there and plenty of advisors on campus to help you and your child in finding that help. Also, don't be afraid to let go. Let you child experience life to it's fullest. Encourage them to take chances and to get out there and make a name and a life for themselves. All in all, college is the one place you can go to ensure positive influences and brighter futures.

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

The worst thing about my school i would have to say would be the cost. I work and go to school. It's hard to make ends meet and pay for tuition and books. I want a college degree so i can succeed and go far in life but the cost just seems to keep rising. That makes getting a degree hard.

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

First, apply to all the colleges that you are interested to, and visit them. Sit in a classroom and listen to the lectures. Second, apply for every financial aids you are eligible for. They are a lot of ways to get money to fund for your college experience, but you have to be willing to look for it. Third, get involved on the campus because thats how you find friends, and find things you like to do outside of school and studying for you courses. Getting involved and being social can be a nice break from the rough courses and the studying. Last, if you can afford it, live on campus. It beats having to get up and fight for a parking space, and most of all its a great way to learn how to be independent, and find a lot of new friends that will end up being your friends for life.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about our school is how well the students help each other when another student is in need, and how the faculty provide the same help. The professors have a fixed amount of offive hours every week, and they are very flexible when you need to contact them whether it be via e-mail, by dropping by there office, or calling them they are always willing to help you.

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

I wish i would have known more study skills before coming here, but it wasn not hard to adjust and learn what you needed to learn to succeed in your academics because of the help from the students and faculty.

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

Parents, let your kids choose which college they get to go to, don't hold them back for selfish reasons. They only get to go to college once, so let them go where they want. They won't let you down by not learning, they'll actually try harder, to make sure you won't be disappointed. They may make some bad choices, but you live and learn. They'll do better after learning how not to do it.

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

It doesn't have as much classes as other universities. Foreign languages, for example, i wanted to take Korean, but they don't have it here.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

That it isn't the school that I wanted to go to.
