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.

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

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!!

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

In order to have a hands on college experience a student should probably live at the dorms to learn how to deal with a roommate as well as getting used to living alone without your parents around which would prepare you for life after college. You should also join some kind of club or volunteer in order to meet new people, something I haven't had time to do. Also, if you can get an on-campus part-time job, 'cause having a little extra money never hurt anyone plus whenever you want to treat yourself to buying a cute blouse or some cool new iPod for getting good grades then you can afford to do it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that wouldn't mind paying $3,133 for a quarter (that only lasts 2 months and 3 weeks), when in the long run, it would be cheaper to pay $3,133 for a semester (which lasts longer than 2 months and 3 weeks).

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

Our school is very architecural around the campus. All the buildings are unique and it's very city like.

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

I would advise parents and students looking into college to also go on campus visits. They need to get the feel of each campus before making a decision because it saves the hassel of transferring if they decide they don't want to stay at the college. Good luck to all!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I wouldn't reccommend attending this school if you're not a city kind of person and would rather be at a school with a more nature view.

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

A solid commuter's school with a lot of on-campus activities/facilities that commuters rarely partake of and was under major construction for my first 3 years.

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

If given the chance: live on campus, take AP courses in high shcool, apply for EVERY scholarship you can find & are eligable for. Only live on campus if it is financially feasable and do research on the dorms so you know which one to request (some are run-down, constant "fire drills" while other are new and very clean). Taking AP courses in high school will allow most schools to give you credit for that course if you score well enough on the AP test but even if your college does not, most first-year classes will not go far beyond the AP material which means it will be a review of previously learned material and thus will greatly reduce stress for your first year. Finally, apply for every scholarship you can! Every bit helps and the more you apply for the greater your chances of getting money for college. It may be a pain to fill out what will seem like a never-ending stream of scholarship applications but it will all be worth it if you are granted even one.

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

I would say that you need to pick a school that you are truly interested in and that offers a good program for whatever area you want to major in. Although it is hard, you need to pick a school for your own good rather than a school that all your friends are going to. You should try to steer away from a school that has a party reputation if you only want to go there so you will appear cool to everyone else. In all you just need to follow your heart and go where you want or you will not enjoy your experience to the fullest.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who don't want to be competitive should not go to this school because a lot of the programs are hard to get into and once you get in you have to compete with everyone else to advance.
