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

The college experience is an obvious milestone in any persons life and needs careful consideration. To make the most of the experience and to get the most out of it careful choices need to be made. Is my school geared towards what I want to major in? Do I enjoy my surrounding campus and neighborhoods, cities? Do I get a sense of well-being while touring the facilities? Is the faculty warm and receptive? All these factors and more add up to either a positive or negative experience at the school. Get out and talk to students. Find out what they do in their free time and what they think of their classes and their school. Once enrolled don't miss the opportunity to join extra-curricular activities. Not only is it another chance to grow and learn but it's a chance to meet and make new friends that may carry on past your college career. College is a wonderful and growing time in the lives of many. Simply take the time to find out where you wish to grow and learn, you'll remeber it for the rest of your life.

What's unique about your campus?

The diversity amongst students, the low faculty to student ratio. The availability of the professors and the school's strides to advance as a center of education.

The most important adive to prospective students and/or parents would be to allocate time to make a plan. Do not be afraid to ask questions. Call the school. Call alumni. Take a campus visit. Understanding what you are getting into the first time will help you avoid regreting a decision that you should have attended somewhere else. Be open to new experiences. It is all about the journey and not the destination.

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

First of all college isn?t a joke. College is serious and should be considered a full-time job. It is meant to be strenuous and challenging for the betterment of the college student. It will help prepare you for your life that is to come. In order to ?succeed,? college must not be taken lightly. Second of all, parents and students must realize that they paid for it. Whether it be through taxes (federal financial aid), loans, scholarships, or out of pocket; you paid for it! You either paid for using money or your valuable time. School is not free and we are very lucky to have the opportunity to be educated. To find the right college parents and students should brainstorm what they enjoy doing by jotting it down on paper. They should then search using the many free online resources such as College Board for any college help. Sites like collegeboard.com can make finding a college, applying for college, and paying for college a whole lot easier. Free resources are out there and waiting to help you. Last, once you have found the right school, try and visit the campus and if possible interview students there.

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

I believe that students should look towards their interests. They should choose a school based on quality of learning in their field of their choice. The environment and location may also be a factor conducive to learning. One should choose a location based on how confortable they feel. Students should study things they are interested in, and follow dreams instead of just choosing something based on the financial gain. You only live life once, and you should learn what you want to learn. Students should try to get a good rapport with their teachers, and other faculty members. If you show you are willing to learn, then the less difficult the class will likey be for you. Never miss classes, and be enthusiastic to learn whatever they can. Education is a privilage and students should take advantage of it. Students should make sure to take the time to study, and be prepared. The only way to fail is to not care. If someone doesn't follow this they probably have their own selves to blame for their grades. A student with a disability should get help. There is no reason to struggle if there are ways to adjust to difficulties.

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

1. One must know who they are. 2. Relax, it's going to be ok. 3. Stay focused, don't waste your time, your going to die some day and you have things to do before then. 4. Set goals so you know where you are going/what you are working for. Don't worry about which one to do just pick one and go for it YOU decide how important each goal is. 5. Stay away from things that do not help you get to those goals. You are only making your job harder by hanging with those people doing those things

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I was born and raised in Indiana and liked the way things get done there, But here in Hilo everything is on Island Time and SUPER relaxed; i.e. deadlines, goals, ambitions, Life in general. Sometimes it gets TOO relaxed for me, so I work out or run it off and take care of it.
