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

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

Find a school that fits your needs as well as schools that you may not be used to such as private schools. The University of Dubuque is a private school but its wonderful for the people who attend. It makes you feel like a family with students and falculty. Also being at a small college helps us learn more affectively without failing our class as well as be able to get involved in athletics and extra curricular activities. Small schools are the best way to go.

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

The college you go to must feel right to you. The most important thing about picking a college is that when you are there you must feel like you are at home. While attending college you should try to make the best of it, try to balance having fun with getting things done. Do your school work but have while doing it. Choose a major that you already love doing. I choose computer graphics because I am very passonate about video games. Because I love video games my classes dont seem like home work I truly enjoy what I'm doing. That is the most important thing about your college experience enjoy it, because it goes by in a flash.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school board is to traditional.

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

There is alot of focus on "world views" while attending this school. The campus is beautiful, people are so friendly and helpful. It truly is a caring and compassionate enviornment. Most of the facilities are new as well for help with the latest technology.

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

That when you find the right college you will just know. Look for a college that makes you feel at home.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any type of person can attend this school. There is alot of ethnic diversity, clubs/groups, and extra ciricular activities to be envolved in. If your dedicated to your major and are goal driven in the area you've picked to pursue then the professors will do everything in their power to help you succeed and achieve your goals.

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

The most pertinent things to consider when choosing a school to fit your needs would include taking a look at the social opportunities just as hard as you must analyze the achademic curriculum. Being happy is the most important thing when picking a college. College should be an enjoyable experience. Many friends can be made when you pick a school that contains students just like you. To ensure that this happens, a school with a diverse student body is very important. Picking a school which enables you to build a strong support network behind you, allows anyone to be successful.

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

The rules are the worst thing about the University of Dubuque. The people are friendly, but many members of the stafe don't understand that the students are also adults and can take care of themselves. This school would be great for someone who has been protected by parents their whole life.

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

Be true to yourself. Pick what school you really feel comfortable in not which one is "cool" because in the long run that will not matter. Do not follow the crowd. Be involved. Be social. Do your homework. Study. Make sure you actually sleep. Eat good meals. Your friends here will be friends for a life time so choose wisely. No matter what, just be yourself! : )

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

We need more financial aid help.

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

My best advice is, choose the college that makes you feel most comfortable. Choose a 4 year not a 2 year, although in some cases a 2 year college may be all that is needed, but a 4 year college helps students experience "real" college. Where a 2 year college a student doesn't have an opportunity to meet new students or have a chance of having a good 1 on 1 relationship with the student. Which i highly recomend, students get to know all your professor's on a first name basis, they will be great references in the future when job searching! P.S. Follow your intuition with a smile and live a dream!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the sincerity of the teachers. They listen and understand that each individual is their own person and that some things happen that one can't control, and each individiual is judge upon themselves and not others around them. I love it!

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

Make sure the college has a specific program related to what your career choice you have, and make sure the program is of good quality. Make sure the professors in your area of study are very educated and are highly qualified in your career or area of interest. Visit the college a couple times before you make a decision. I remember when I chose the first college I wanted to go to. WHen I was on campus I felt like I was at home, and this made the choice alot easier. You have to feel comfortable where you're at. Make sure you don't get caught up in the wrong crowd because if you do you will become something your not. Remember that you are paying to go to college. It's money you are spending, and don't let it go to waste. Most of all have fun: get involved in extra-curricular activities, sports, intramurals, fraternities/sororities, student groups, etc. When you are in college and choosing what college you want to go to you have to follow your heart because that is the only thing that can lead you the right direction.

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

That living on your own takes great responsibility, and that you can't always trust someone.

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

The worst thing about my school is the football players. They come here from a long ways and never go to class. They dont care about their education they just are here to play football.
