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

IT is very affordable for the education you recieve.

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

I would advise myself to take a year off in between high school and college to travel, work, volunteer and really explore what I liked and wanted to do. I would tell myself to read as much as possible and to talk to people in different professions to discover what career would really fit me best. I would also warn myself that the transition would be hard, that their would be a lot of new people and to take care of myself and get involved in order to make new friends.

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

I would tell myself to stay at home for the first year of college. It was fun living away from home, but it really messed me up. There was too much freedom, and not so much restrictions, so my grades fell. Also, to surround yourself with great friends who have a strong head on their shoulders. They're the ones who will guide you in the right direction. Don't put anything off just to go play for a few hours. When you're in school, your work is the most important thing, and it should always come first. I give a lot of kudos to the kids who know how to balance their social life and school life. If I could go back, I'd do it the right way. You shouldn't always try to grow up faster. It's not like high school where the teachers will give you leeway on assignments. Due dates are written in stone. College is a whole new scene, and it IS the first step to growing up.

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

I love my school. I don't think there's anything about my school that I don't like. Well, expect for parking, but it's really not that big of a deal. I think I would have to say the old dorms that we have on campus that aren't in use. They should be torn down, and replaced with apartments like the other ones they have. It would be a lot more convienent and useful. But due to budget cuts, that's not going to happen.

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

LOL, I tell them we're awesome with everything. In academics, and even in sports. We're not that great, but i take great pride in my school. I love it! <3

The best years of your life are coming your way! You have the whole world ahead of you and college is just the beginning. Go out there, meet new and different people.

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

Don't overwhelm yourself with too much schoolwork. Finishing at a slower pace is better than not finishing at all. Make sure you set a list of goals for yourself, get involved, and don't affiliate yourself with the wrong types of people. Don't give up, just keep pressing on. And most of all, have fun! (but not too much)

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

i don't like how some of the professors are foreign and its really quite hard to understand them.

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

That it is a place where i feel like a part of something. that its not too big, not too small, you get a since of community and belonging here. it feels like home. but better.

Don't spend your money on useless things. Study more and worry about hanging out with people less, they get to be really busy. Relax and be yourself, it will all turn out alright.

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

DON'T TAKE MORE THAN 12 HOURS AND DON'T TAKE DESIGN AND DRAWING IN THE SAME SEMESTER!!! And make sure you get all the scholarships and grants and other money you can! Don't forget to do all your work in Math/Algebra and keep up so you don't fail the class! And don't take Math first thing in the monring--no earlier than 10am--for that matter don't take any 8am classes at all--trust me; you won't be able to stay awake and pay attention (which will not be good for your grade in that class--especially if it's Math!)!

What's unique about your campus?

I love the campus and the Marching Band! The campus isn't huge so you can walk to anyplace on campus and the Marching Band is serious about what we do and we're good at it!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I would say my school is best known for its ethnicity diversity. We have people from all over the world that come to sttend ULL.

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

The advice I would give myself is that everything is not as easy as it seems. That no one will always be there to help you as you transistion in life. Their will be alot of bumps in the road so you have to be mentally stable for whats in store.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person that should attend ULL is an ubeat person. Someone who stays on task easily, never drawn away by other things. A person who is socially active with school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The University Of Louisiana at Lafayette is very well known for its Computer Science and Enginerring Degrees. The Physics Department also has a secret contract with the U.S. Government. The students at the school are very friendly to one another since it is a smaller school. The spirit at the games is a pretty amazing site.

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

If I could go back to High School I would have just a few things to tell myself. I started my college career as a Chemistry Major planning on trying to get into Med School, but the thing is I did not actually want to do this. My parents were heavily weighing on the choice and I ended up doing it. I would tell myself then not to start as a Chem Major, but to instead start as what I actually wanted to do, Physics. I made the switch this semester and thanks to a summer school class I am not behind, but it caused me a head-ache that I could have avoided.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The one thing that comes to mind is that they are short on teachers in some departments. For my Physics class the school had to combine two sections together so we have almost fifty students in the class. While this is not really a big deal, it makes the classes more crowded then they should have to be for some subjects.
