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

This school is a great place to get a well-rounded education, meet people from various places around the country, and to get away from hectic city life and to discover more about yourself.

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

Look around, and around, and around. Don't limit yourself because of distance. Strive to be the best, even if those around you think otherwise. Hard work is necessary, so don't try to get around it. Meet lots of people, but keep close the ones that will encourage and help you along the way. Studying is hard, but it will pay off. When in doubt, ask questions. It is nolonger the responsibility of parents and teachers to make sure you get through, it is all on your shoulders, so don't slouch.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Administration and tuition increases

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

Jamestown College is a professional, academically driven small school where the faculty, staff, and students know each other, like each other, and come together to make the atmosphere light, friendly, fun, but yet stay goal-oriented.

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

When you tour, get a feel for the campus and the people there rather than just choosing a college based on the statistics for your major. Do some research on the city or town that your college/university is in, such as availability of jobs for college students, supermarkets, shopping centers, banks, churches, population, demographics, etc. Talk to students that attend that school and get their opinion. Get involved in the extra-curricular activities on your campus. Getting to know the people you attend school with will make your experience all the better. Getting involved helps you meet new people, make a difference, and gives you a time-out from your studies, so that you can better focus when you need to. College is a time for you to figure out what you want to do with your life (if you don't already know) and focus on your career path, as well as further discover who you are as a person and who you want to be. Take advantage of every opportunity and choose a school that will allow you to feel comfortable and be YOU!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

For me, the most frustrating thing was parking during my senior year. I lived on campus, and if I were to leave campus, students who lived off-campus would park in the parking lot of my dorm because it was closer to their classes, meaning no parking spot for me, a person who lived at that building. I did report my concern, and therefore, a campus-wide email was sent explaining parking rules, and the issue seemed to get better afterward.

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

The best thing to do when picking a college is to make sure that the student will be comfortable there. It needs to feel like home. It was really hard on me when I wanted to go home and couldn't because I lived so far away. Just make sure that the college is everything you want, and don't settle for anything less than the best.

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

This is the perfect school to go to if you are looking for a good experience and if you are looking for the best education for your money.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Friendly, open and helpful staff and student body. The campus is smaller which allows professors to know you by your name, not by a number. JC offers a wide variety of majors along with activities to become involved in.

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

Don't look at the price tag! Everyone will have student loans. Look at how teachers interact with students. Look at the campus and campus statistics. Look at more than one school, you want to find the right school otherwise your experience won't be as good as it should be. College is a great experience but you have to find the right college.

We are best know for being a small community where there is a lot of time for one on one with the professors.

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

Make sure you first determine what you want. Decide if you want to be a name (small school) or a number (large school). Determine if you want to have a relationship with your professor where you can talk to them at any time about college or not. Also tour as many places as possible, and the one that makes you feel like this is "home" that is the one for you. When I was touring I didn't want to go to the college i am going to. What made me make the decision was the fact that I felt like I was home everytime I went there. The departments are like families not just students working together for one common goal. Good Luck at finding what you are looking for, and don't become frustrated, because there is a college out there for you I promise.

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

Pick a school that can guarantee your most important needs. If you do this, you will have nothing to worry about. Atmosphere is a key component to any college campus, and if you can come into contact with upper classmen before attending school there you will find it helpful. They will be completely honest with you and won't lead you astray about campus life.

What's unique about your campus?

The Comraderie. The quality of education is exceptional for the cost of tuition.

Describe the students at your school.

Your classmates will range in intelligence, attitude, gender proportions, and much more. They will be fairly focused and willing to work together to understand the material and study for tests.

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

First off, visit at least 5 schools of their choice. Let them make up their mind about what they think of each school before you start telling them what you think. You may have wisdom they don't, but you don't know exactly what it is that might really attract them to a school. Everyone is different. Don't pressure them to be perfect. College is about trying new things. Encourage them to get involved on campus. It will make all the difference in the world to them. I wouldn't believe it if you would have told me 3 years ago that I would be involved in so much. On the otherhand, there isn't a single thing I would give up, it's become part of who I am. On the same line, don't over do it. I have seen plenty of people burn out. Most importantly, cut the apron strings mom. Freshman are going to be a crazy bunch when they first arrive here. (I am an RA) The ones affected most, are those who were babied growing up and not allowed to experience life till college. Finally, don't worry., they'll be fine.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

How the board makes unilateral decisions that affect people who work and attend the college that they have no real insight on. I would love to grab each one of them and make them look me straight in the eye and tell them to talk to people that know what is going on in a specific area before they make their decisions.

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

Start early. Start when you are a junior in high school that will help you when you are finding a college. When you are stuck between colleges make a board with plusses and minuses and which one has more and which one has less. The one thing that you need to remember if you do not like the college tuff it out and finish the semester and you could transfer if you would like to transfer.

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

The worst thing about my school is that it is in my home town and it is hard to get away

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is in a smaller town and things never change.
