My school offered the most financial help and awarded every entering student a scholarship.

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

I would tell myself not to be afraid about the transition from high school to college because college is a million times better then college. The courses are not has difficult as people depict them to be. The professors do care about their students and are always available to help. I would advise myself to ask more than on financial counselors to help you find different ways to get more money to cover your tuition. In college there are different ways to receive more money in your financial aid packet without having to take out private loans. Also I would advise myself to not procrastinate when having to write papers that are 10 pages and more. You will end up pulling all-nighters and you will not receive the grades you want on those papers. Finally, I would advise myself take an early start in looking for law schools and taking prep courses before your senior year in college. Senior year is stressful enough with final requirements and final papers to worry about studying for a Law School entry exam.

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

The problem with going back in time to speak to myself as a high school senior is that I wouldn't be there. That person has never existed. Young, haughty, and dealing with sorrows beyond my years, I chose to become a statistic at the age of 16. School was my thorn; the beast I was never meant to tame. Lacking true guidance, I dropped out, sparking my premature entry into the "real world." However, this would not mark my story's end. Years later, the allure of academia seems to beckon my return. I am now a 25 year old college freshman, brimming with utter joy at the thought of redeeming the ashes of my education and turning them into beauty.Were I to cross paths with the frightened, broken girl of my youth, I imagine very few words would be exchanged. I would simply cradle that child, wipe her tears, pray for strength to find her, and whisper "hang tight, sweet girl." For I know what she does not yet see. When her world shattered, my dreams took flight. When her star exploded and all seemed lost, something new had emerged and turned to kiss the sun. Hope.

What is so unique about my school compared to other schools i considered is that it is much more closer to home, the transportation is conveint, there is no out of state tution, and they offered me money in a scholarship.

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

If i could go back in time knowing what i know now about college life and making the transition, the advice i would give myself is to save all the money i receive, get a job, always look for scholarships, and come to college with a much better mind set.

What's unique about your campus?

what I consider to be the best thing about my school is how much they do and want to help me. One example is receivinh scholarships. They referred me to many different websites such as yours to continue to help me pay for college.

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

Graduating high school and getting accepted to college may seem exciting and easy, but without the motivation and confidence college may become one's downfall. College is a new door to the beginning of an adventure. The most important thing about college is not about how many parties you attend or what fraternity you join, but keeping your goals and dreams priority. It is important to have fun and experience the college life, but like they say drink in moderation. It's not about memorizing every single word in the book. Just trust the process of learning and believe that everything has a purpose. Study hard, be prepared for everything, trust yourself and be consistent.

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

The advice I would give myself would be to be prepared to be independant and balance life. Balancing life is very important because there is no one telling you what to do, such as when do to homework, clean, eat, or socialize. It is important to also prepare yourself for the atmopshere that you will be in. Going away for college changes your usual atmosphere to a strange one, and it will take time to get use to it. I would also tell myself to not be afriad to speak your opinion and ask questions. Espcially when there is no adult to ask the questions for you. Also to be prepared to miss home, but going to school close by will make it easier to get home for a weekend. Lastely I would tell myself to balance money because when living at college where the food is not great and there is a mall nearby it is easy to lose control of how much money is being spent.

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

I wish I had known more about financial aid because I could have appealed my award letter so I could recieve more money.

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

The crazy majors that are offered, such as Martial Arts. Also how small, but beautiful the campus is. The Long Island Sound that is five minutes from campus and the great pepole that are on campus.

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

As of my college experience today, i have gotten a great deal of help in my education and knowledge of the world. In my first semester I took on classes that tought better ways to be successful in class. It wasn't hard to understand my classes and teachers. Unlike, highschool college has been something that i enjoy doing. I hope that I will complete my 2-year Commuity College education by the endof this year and immediatley go into a four year college degree program. College has given me time to think and really realize what i plan on doing for the rest of my life. Without the college education that I am now trying to obtain I wouldn't know what to do but jouin the Army or Navy. Thanks to the knowledge, information, and strength taught to me by my instructors I will never have that regret and feeling's that I could have or should have completed my education. In the end college may not be for everyone but i am grateful for what college has done for me.

The University of Bridgeport is a very small school in size (Campus, Students, Staff). You begin to meet everyone on campus and see familiar faces everyday. Everyone on Campus is really nice, as well as the teachers. Its size allows teachers to spend more time with you on subjects you might not grasp well. It's not like other schools where you're stuck in a room with 100 students and a teacher that barely knows your name. There are always activities for students so you're never bored.

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

Before attending college I really didn't care for learning music theory, notes, etc on the guitar. My first semester of college was filled with so much knowledge and has shaped me into a better musician. In my other classes such as English and First Year Seminar it really got me thinking. In highschool I hated to read, I hated doing homework but in college I enjoy it. College has really helped me want to learn and obtain the education I need for my field.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the amount of support they give. The financial aid is great. About 98% of students receieve financial aid. I am currently a music major and the music program is great! I believe that's the best part of the school. The music program has amazing teachers who are composers themselves and also a teacher who is a music engineer who creates robots that play music. It's quite fascinating.
