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

Find a college that best fits your social, academic, and aesthetic needs. Do not let the size of your school hold you back from attending. Studying and work should alwatys come first regardless of your desires to go out. Work is only temporary and is vital to your future as a successful U.S. citizen. Put God, friends, and family before yourself at all times. A selfless person will be rewarded. You will do great and don't forget to go above and beyond to reach your dreams!

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

Find a college or university which is right for you. Don't make your final decision based upon where your friends are going or because it's where your parents want you to go. Choose a college in which you will fully benefit from. Yes, your friends and family are important, but remember this is your life and your experience. Therefore, choose an insitituion in which you will prosper, where you will make lifetime friends with people you wouldn't expect, where you will be introduced to things you never would have otherwise, where the professors and advisors make you their priority, and most importantly where you will receieve academic challenges and opportunities you wouldn't recieve elsewhere. Choose a school for you.

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

To not let the cost bother you, you can't put a price on an education or experience.

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

Coming out of High School I was always forced to have a my life planned out. I needed a college picked out and what my degree would have to be in by my senior year of high school. I started at Kent State University and decided that it was not the right college for me; so i moved onto the University of Cincinnati. I then realized that its not the end of the world if you transfer and are not sure what you want to do with your life, yes it is a pain in the butt to transfer but If I can get through it then anyone can. So my advice it to sit back and enjoy the ride, its called life!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school would be the professors. Most are very interesting and down to earth. Most of them are very easy to listen too and you feel like your opinion is worth something.

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

I would tell parents and/or students that the best way to ensure your making the right decision when picking a college is to go on a college campus visit. Visiting a college really gives you sense of how the campus is layed out, what the dorms and buildings look like, and it also gives you a chance to meet some of the administration. Unfortunately, I never went on a college visit before I made my decision to go to Bowling Green State University. I feel that if I had the oppurtunity to visit the campus before I had made the decision I would not have made the decision to go to school there.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frusrating thing about UC is the part of town that it is in. It is not safe for less than 4 people to be walking anywhere at night, and a girl should really never walk anywhere by herself during the day. There is also a lot of crime and with UC being in the middle of the city it sometimes seems dirty. There are also a lot of homeless people around the campus.

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

UC is a very fun school to go to. The education is great and so are the people. I have nothing to complain about when I talk about UC. Professors are helpful and classes are just the right size. I also tell my friends how close everything is at the UC Main campus.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for our school of engineering, and DAAP. Both have programs that are ranked very high nationally, so they bring in a great deal of students from out of state, and country.

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

I would visit the schools that you are thinking of applying for as early as possible. I'm a tour guide at my school, and the earlier you visit the school, the less people you will have with you on your tour. Most tour guides love talking about their school, and if you are in a smaller group you will learn more because the tour will be more tailored to your individual needs. You will find out more information about the school that can help you in deciding what school you want to spend the next four to five years of your life at. It's not all about the schools academics. You grow intellectually, as well as emotionally at college. You want to make sure that you choose a school that has an environment that you will thrive in. For example, do you want to live in a big city or small city? Both have great schools, but they offer many different extracurriculars. I researched colleges, and then went and visited only those that were on my list. It was a very easy decision for me because I knew right away where I felt at home.

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

In my own words, I think you should just consider what makes you happy and not everyone else. You need to think about the pros and cons in a school. Start off by thinking about what you want in a college. Remember you pick the college the college doesn't pick you.

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

Try to talk to some of the professors before hand and see if you can find out what they are really interested in. If they put more value on their labwork than teaching then I'd think twice about attending that school.

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

With a few acceptions, it seems like professors don't really care about their students. Most of them basically just read the book to you making attending classes a waste of time. Teachers at my school need to work on building off the material in the book instead of simply copying/repeating it. I would think everyone going to college could read.

What's unique about your campus?

UC was the first school to start a co-op program. In my opinion this is the best thing you could offer college students. It does take a little longer to graduate, but the real world experience is irreplaceable.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

It's a large group of very diverse people seeking either education or the "college experience."

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

I thoroughly recommend the 3 R's: research, research, research! Be educated on what each college has to offer: location, size, what the campus is like, what the people are like, financial aid options, major offerings, and special programs like study abroad and internships. Also research what YOU want. What size is preferred? Are you looking for a competitive or relaxed setting? Knowing what you want before you get to college and knowing which colleges have that are the best ways to find the perfect fit. Know what you're looking for and research, research, research, ALL your options until you find it. Finding the best fit will undoubtably make for the best college experience. Once you get there, all you'll have to do is get involved and do what you love!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A shy person, the school is so huge, there are a ton of people there. It's not hard to fit in with people, you just have to be outgoing enough to find them first.

UC is as focused as it is unfocused, basically, anyone can find or lose what they are looking for if they set thier minds to it.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

UC is best known for its research departments, music, design, and co-operative education. The Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, DAAP, and the Co-op program are the major highlights.

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

Start with what will make you happy. If you are academically driven, find a school where you can focus. If you have strong morals, find a school where students and faculty value your beliefs. Try not to feel pressure. Sit with your family and decide what your goals are. Are you looking for a good paying job? Are you looking for challenges in character and integrity? Are you looking for companionship? When you find that school, be satisfied, but only to a point. Many students get to school and become overwhelmed and/or lose focus. Try making friends and getting involved in school curriculars that focus on your goals. Focus is important in every respect. As you enter the adult world responsibility no longer lingers over your present. Everything you do has an impact on your future from here on out. Try to be creative and friendly! Be open to new ideas but also conservative to your beliefs. And finally, please, please, please, don't worry about having fun! No matter where you end up, if you are doing what you love, fun will find you! Good luck!!
