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

I think it is great for students to have there parents assist them in researching colleges, and trying to find that perfect school. However, when it comes to making the final choice, I think that should be left to the student. After all, it is where they will be spending the next four or five years of their lives. As the parent I would make sure to research the campus security, as well as overall safety of the area of the university. Most students (including myself) seem to overlook the importance personal safety. As far as making the most of the college experience, I'd say to have fun. But keep in mind you are there for one reason, and that is to get a quality education. With college, you get out what you put in, and putting forth a great effort, and the study time, you are sure to have a great time, while passing all your classes, and achieving the ultimate goal, graduating.

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

The commuter parking is the worst. They removed the biggest lot we had to build another building, and raised the amount of the parking permits.

Most of my classmates are outgoing once they are comfortable with you. They are always open to new ideas and can always give a helping hand when you need it.

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

Campus life is very important. The choice of the campus your student is involved in can affect their life. If the community is very involved then more than likely your student will a sense of getting involved and making a difference in the community. If the campus is too small and not much really goes on, then chances are that skills such as leadership might not be developed and your student will miss out on some extraordinary opportunities. When looking for a university to send your student to needs to be one that will affect your students life the most and make them change into the person they want to be and to be a more-rounded person. This kind of person is important for the future.

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

I can brag about which teachers are the best to take. Education is important when it comes to your teacher. I think most of the teachers at the school have good teaching methods and I can tell my friends who to stay away from. We also have good campus involvement and everyone is real friendly.

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

Students should take their experience at college seriously and make it a priority to get involved on their campus. You will get out of college what you put into it and there is a wealth of experience and opportunities there waiting for you to discover them. Don't be afraid to go meet your professors, they are there for you and are not scary at all, in fact, some professors will be more lenient and willing to help you if they know your name and know you want to do well. Don't forget that you're at school to learn and to get a great education, but active participation in the activities/organizations of your choice are an essential part of being a well-rounded person. Also, once you finally graduate, don't think our education is complete- be a lifelong learner!

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

I brag about the close-knit "community" athosphere, the great faculty and administration and above all, the outstanding degree programs.

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

Know who you are and what you can handle. If you are close to your parents do not move far away (you will get home sick and your grades and social life will suffer). Only take classes that you can handle and do your research on your proffesors (ratemyproffessor.com is very helpful). Also have an idea of what you would like to major in. That way you can join clubs and organizations that will help you in your feild. A campus tour sounds lame but it is VERY helpful. It will give you a chance to really see the campus and the surrounding areas. Networking is also improtant talk to students that are attending the college., this is possible with myspace and facebook (it also helps if you can not visit the campus for yourself). Living in a dorm or on campus your first year is also important in developing friendships and getting involved in on campus activites. Also most importatly GO TO CLASS!!!!!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is looking for a campus that isn't overwhelming. I like this school because it offers a wide variety of courses and majors. Most of the proffesors really want you to succede and offer tuttoring programs. It isn't to expensive compared to the surrounding colleges and UCO does offer scholarship programs.

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

Finding the right college is a tough decision and is different for each student. I suggest taking a campus tour, and if offer more prospective student servises, take advantages of them. Speak with students with varying majors about their experience, and look into the number of student organizations if you are looking to be involved. If you want to go greek, attend an orientation if offered to see if you really want to participate in that school's greek atmosphere. If the college has on-campus housing, you should definately live on campus your first year. You meet the most people and learn from them that way, and it's a really good experience to have to share a room with another person and a bathroom with a lot of other people. You learn a lot about other people and yourself from living on campus, plus it's so convienent! The more involved in campus activities, the better, because most activities involve some amount of volunteering, which is great for resumes, and it's a lot of fun to do somehting besides just classes. Judge carefully and have fun!

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

I believe a prospective student should pay attention to what is most important in terms of size of classroom. Whether you like a larger size student ratio to teacher, then a bigger school is your choice and vice-versa. Also, the availability of on-campus housing is important. If the housing isn't as one would expect, look at other options. The staff should be determined to be there to help you succeed as a student. If the professors are thinking they're there for a paycheck, then make a better choice.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

One who loves school spirit should not attend this university.

Describe the students at your school.

Try living on campus. It will get you involved and you'll find things about school that will help ensure that you stay in school. Always go to class. Its important to push yourself to be a better adult. You are here to learn and that means outside of the classroom as well.

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

Life is about learning as you go. You don't have to have all the answers when you enter college. In university you will find many new paths and interests that will help to point you in the right direction. You may not have all the answers when you leave. There is never an end to learning. If you like your feild and want a more specific degree try again with a higher degree. But don't push yourself when you are unhappy. You will waste a lot of time and money if you are doing something against your wishes. Don't expect yourself or anybody else to be perfect. Always try harder to reach your full potential.

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

Sometimes there is too much going on. There are many extra curricular activities and ways to get involved but it is easy to get distracted from school. So that at the end of the semester you are scrambling to get everything done that needs to be done.

I would first tell them to visit the campus. Do not just pick a college because it is popular or has great sports teams. Go to the campus, take a tour, and see if you could picture yourself living there and being happy. Pick the campus that you are most comfortable with even if it isn't a huge college that you always thought you would go to. Parents, don't put too much pressure on your kid to go to a big state school right out of high school. And about the college experience, do it all. Have fun and remember to always be safe. College is some of the best times of your life, don't ruin it doing something stupid.
