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

One of the greatest pieces of wisdom I can give parents and students when finding the right college, is to really get a feal of the atmosphere. The best thing you can do is plan your own trip, try and see that university how it really is, by not going on scheduled tours, and by understanding how a "normal" day really feels. Sure, cost and quality are important things when deciding where to further your education, but if you're not comfortable in the university's environment it's going to be difficult to put your nose to the grinder when you need to get the work done. You won't be at your highest level of performance, and your grades and health will suffer. So, in earnest, the greatest piece of advice I can give to parents and future students is, go off the beaten path. Spend a few days at your university, and try to blend in to the daily life. Be comfortable where you are, your nerves and your mind will thank you for it.

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

I can't really think of any major piece of information, but perhaps the number of options when it comes to getting books.

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

I most often comment on the quality of the co-op program, as it is top notch and provides a great service to me and every student who takes advantage of it.

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

I would tell parents that they should find a college that they feel their child would be safe and get the best opportunity to gain a good degree. Also, let the student choose somewhere they are comfortable. If the student isn't comfortable, stress could be added to their already potential hectic school and social load. Students should not choose a school just for its popularity. Sure it would be more fun to be a place where sporting and other social events are exciting, but if the school provides too much of a distraction, the students grades could suffer. Also, don't be afraid to talk to people. The more friends you make, the more willing people there are to help you with what you need and the less alone you will feel.

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

I think so much of "choosing the right school" is actually how you react to school once you're in it. You can go to college anywhere and get a great education- it's all what you make of it. Visit the campus and see if you vibe with it. Tune out unimportant factors, like where all your friends or your significant other is going, and ask yourself if you can really see yourself walking around campus. Check out the activities and what people do on weekends. Going with your gut instinct usually works, and even if it turns out to be different than you expected, be flexible and open-minded. Choosing to participate in activities, going to class regularly and getting involved in a social scene is where the real college experience is, no matter what city or state you're in.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The "typical art student" thing doesn't really fit here like at most art schools- this is much more career-oriented and practical problem solving rather than out-there artistic.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If someone is going to enroll in the DAAP program (the college I attended) they need to be creative, smart, ambitious and willing to learn.

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

The University of Cincinnati has a very big coop program that allows the students a wide variety of jobs in many places across the world. The other schools i looked at did not have a coop program as extensive as this one and i think it is very important to have experience in a job before you commit to the career.

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

The best advice I can give parents and students about finding the right college is to visit the campuses of the schools you are interested while school is in session. This will show you what the campus will really look like when you are there and allow you to see the different types of people that go there. Most incoming students have no idea what they major in so focus on a campus that you like and could live on for many years. The quality of education is important but so is the college experience so I encourage people to live on campus for the experience and the independence.

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

I like to brag about how nice the campus looks. There are a lot of new buildings that are interspersed with green plants that makes the college seem separated from the city that surrounds the campus. Almost everything on campus looks newer and there are few buildings that are old and dilapidated. The campus kind of combines the look of a traditional college with some new and innovative architecture.

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

Uc has so much history, my dad attended there for a year, and he never finished college. It is unique to me becuase going here makes my dad and my family really proud. Also, there is a community surrounding the college, cafe's, restaurants, and shops. Another unique quality are the buildings. Some have been added on to, and it takes a while to learn all of the tricks to getting around campus, but its easy once all the short cuts are learned!

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

Go looking at colleges in the junior year of high school. It seems really early and overwhelming, but the sooner one checks out schools, and applies, the pressure seems to lift a bit. Take advantage of your high school counselor, ask about what steps you need to take to get into college, and how to prepare yourself; take all the college preparation courses the high school offers for students and parents. Keep your grades up!! DONT LET SENIORITIS GET TO YOU!! Visit the colleges you are thinking about attending, take the tour, talk with the students and see what college you believe you will be the most comftorable at. Take advantage of student activities at your college, for instance like a game night, or a study group. Dont skip classes. You or your parents are paying for it, so instead of throwing money out the window... GO TO CLASS EVERYDAY!!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I would say trying to get a hold of your advisor, and just calling to try and get help in general. Usually the lines are busy, and you have to wait on hold for what seems to be forever!

Make sure you take time to visit the campus and see if it`s too big or small for you. Talk to current students and alumni! Get to know what programs are at your school.

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

To the parents let your kids decide where they want to go, but make sure you are a part of their decsion with financial support. Make sure it is within your budget to help them with little things. As for the students look at a few colleges not just one. Live on campus in the dorms and be active with fellow dormies, makes the year extremely fun. Make sure to try to include everyone and don't trash talk or leave anyone out. And if you want to succeed ask professors for help in your classes they are there for you. I have found out the hard way that all professors want to do is help never be affraid to ask how you can do better in the class early instead of later. I personally put things off until they are almost due, try not to do that if you know you have a big project do start working on it a little at a time it will relieve alot of stress. Don't Party every night you will fail faster then you think. Last but not least have some FUN, and you dont always need alchol to do that.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I think anyone that wants to attend a big college with a diverse group of people should attend this college. I enjoy a big college because I went to a big high school and one thing I really wanted was a big college to match that. Professors are usually very willing to help you with your studies and questions you have outside of classes.

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

I would consider the crime on and around campus to be the worse part. Luckily i have not been involved in any of it (knock on wood). The police do a good job of getting there fast, but if you go 3-4 blocks in any way there are a bunch of thugs.

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

Finding the right college requires that the student know what he or she is looking for, research a number of colleges thoroughly, and start the college search process early. Ideally, the student should determine by the beginning of junior year what is most important in a college, e.g., the academic subjects offered, geographic area and campus type, distance from home, and extracurricular activities offered. By spring of junior year, the student should visit several colleges that are on the ?serious contenders? list. My sister and I visited up to six colleges each with our family. For each of us, one college that seemed perfect on paper was eliminated after our visit. Complete essays and applications over the summer before senior year and submit them in September to make senior year easier for students and families alike. Also, apply to one safety school that the family can afford and that that informs students early of their acceptance. By submitting our applications early, we had our guidance counselor?s undivided attention, minimized stress at home, and by December, had been accepted to a college that we looked forward to attending.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I do get frustrated that the UC quarter schedule doesn't correspond to my friends' schedules (semester). I'm still home (early September) and most of my friends are back at school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who seeks a great learning experience from a design school should enroll in DAAP at UC. It's prepared me well for the architecture job I had this summer after just 1 year at UC.

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

Parents-- don't pressure your child into choosing a school that YOU think they would like; let them decide for themselves, and be supportive. Students-- Don't choose a school or major based on what you think is expected of you; choose a major and a school that you truly are interested in.

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

The quality of the Engineering department and its Co-op program.

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

Start looking for colleges early and never rule any college out before seeing it. Take campus tours and get a feel for the college. Don't worry about the cost. Go to a college according to the degrees it has, not because friends are going. You want to enjoy your major and the jobs that go with it because if you get a degree in something you didn't want a job in, you will not be happy and you will regret your decision.
