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

When trying to find the right college for you or for your child I suggest that you keep in mind the kind of personality that you have. Think about what it is that you would like to acheive throughout the school year and what steps you plan to take in order to achieve this. Also be open to experience changes.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who wants to focus solely on their education and getting a perfect score on each test or exam shouldn'r attend this school. Also someone who is not very social should not attend this school and who doesn't like big crowds.

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

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for its small and friendly atmosphere with professors are ready and willing to know you personally. This is an extreme advantage because recommendation letters and graduate school recommendations are important. When a professor can know you by name and your accomplisments by heart, the student is able to thrive more than ever. Our school is well known for the friendly "Bonjours" given by both friends, strangers, faculy members, and passer bys. ULL is known for its southern hospitality radiating from all who get the chance to be a part of our cajun heritage.

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

Finding the right college is truly important both academically and socially. Although the main focus should be on academics, it is important that the student favors the social environment that he or she will be learning in. College years are some of the most influencial years and have a huge impact on self confidence needed to continue after a degree is obtained. The college experience is about growing into a young adult with other people who have the same goals and dreams as you do. The college experience is about learning responisibility and maintaining the freedom responsibly. All of these things are essential along with working towards a rewarding future. My advice to parents would be to allow your student to seek out what is important to them in a learning environment while enjoying the atmosphere around them. Students, find a place where you can be yourself and grow. Do not be afraid of new challenges, because just chosing to go to college is a huge accomplishment. Make new friends, even if they do not dress like you or have the same hobbies. The true college experience is about learning not only your field, but about yourself! Dont be nervous!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Attending the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is an honored accompplisment. I think that a person who would attend our school would be open minded to the rural yet urban lifestyle, well adapted to the cajun culture, excited about an education with students who are equally excited, and ready to work academically with their professors to acheive their goals. ULL has an inpecably diverse atmosphere, and everyone has a place to their second home. Any student ready and willing to learn is welcomed at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for its nursing program, engineering program, computer science program, business program, public relations program, fashion design/merchandising program, art program, and architecture program. Students at my school are also known for calling themselves Ragin Cajuns.

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

Students have many different factors to consider when choosing a college but one of the most important factors is the location of the college. If a student is more comfortable living in a big city or small town they should choose a college that is located in an area they would be comfortable living in. Another very important factor to consider is the program that the student is interested in. Students must research the schools they are interested in to make sure that the school offers certain programs and areas of study. Some schools will be able to offer more in certain areas of study than others and would be more beneficial. Once the student has selected the school and begins college, they should find the school organizations which pertain to their interests. Being involved on their college campus with other students is one of the best ways for students to get the most out of their college experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who are more concerned with academics than their school's sports teams should attend this school. This school is well known for their academic programs but is not known as a party school. There are still plenty of extracurricular activities to participate in. Lafayette is also a good sized city. There are a lot of things to do there but it is not one of the larger cities in Louisiana.

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

Visit some of the college campuses that you are interested in. Try to find a school that is known for what you want to study. Keep in mind the distance the school is away from your home in case of emergencies and things of that nature. Try to find a place were you are comfortable and enjoy being.

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

I thimk the sidewalks are too small. There is always alot of "people traffic" going to and from classes, and someone is always forced to walk off the edge of the sidewalk.

I would suggest parents and/or students pick a college where they know they will feel comfortable going and where they will get a good education.

The school spirit and that our teachers have actually worked in their fields and are now teaching us from actual experience.

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

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

I would say to pick a school where you feel welcome. If you do not feel like you belong there, do not enroll. Take tours and ask questions about things that are important to you. Even though a school's curriculum is good doesn't mean the environment will be condusive to your type of learning. If you don't know people at the school, join a club,group, or sorority/fraternity. Being a happier, social person can help in your studies and the networking can help you get a job once you're out of college. Also, even though it is important to have a social life, don't have too much that it gets in the way of your overall goal. Which is to do well at your school of choice. It's important to get involved with people who value education and can help you throughout your college career.

What's unique about your campus?

The atmosphere is definitely the best part. I love the community because it's not a huge city and you can get to know people. It's also a very friendly and inviting place.

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

I would tell students and parents to look for a college or university that makes them feel at home. When a student goes to tour a college, that person will usually feel something special about the college. They should look for programs within the college that are focused on what they want to do with their life. The student and parent should also look for good housing on campus. To make the most of the college experience, a student should join some extracurricular activities to get involved on campus. By getting involved, he or she will be able to make friends. The student should also follow his or heart in deciding on a major. He or she should have as much fun as they can but should also remember that studies come first. The student should live every moment to the fullest and not have any regrets to make most of his or her college experience.

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

The worst thing about my school is that it can feel a little overcrowded when trying to get meals on campus. You have to wait in long lines and often it's not worth it to stand in line for an hour for a cheeseburger.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking is very frustrating. When you need to drive to class, there is never enough available parking spots for the amount of students that attend the university.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Being an architect major i would like to think that the architecture program is what my school is known for. It also has other great programs though. such as its nursing, business, and marketing programs. they are all really strong. We also have decient sports programs which are strongly supported by our student body.

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

Take what you love to do and hold on to it. Use what you love to inspire you to make the decision on what you want to do for a living. After you make that decision then look at all of the schools you have selected and choose the one that best fits you and can help you achieve your goals of doing what you love. In doing this you will make lifelong friends that share the same intrest and give you a more fulfilling college experence.

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

I wish i would have known a little bit more about my major and its school. It's helpful to know what your getting yourself into. Also i wish i had known about the housing issues here in lafayette. They are not bad but i learned through experence what i liked.

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

I would recommend a number of things actually. First of all, I would speak with my college advisor in high school if the school provided one. Then, I would talk to as many people as possible about the different colleges that I was interested in. I might even ask different people to suggest colleges of their own. I'd try to ask current and former students of the different colleges, professors, and anyone else involved with the universities. After getting some different opinions, I would do a bunch of research on the internet on the different colleges to try to find reviews and ratings on the universities. I would also look into what scholarships are available for each college. Lastly, I would go to every college I was interested in and gather as much information about the school as possible. I would take any tours that are offered, talk to students/professors around campus, and try to see if that particular university would be the right university for me.

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

That I could have received more scholarships had my high school college advisor not told me that I wasn't eligible for them.

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

The lack of a student ramp park for BMX bikes and skateboards. There are lots of students who BMX and skateboard on campus that would like a free student facility to practice their sport.
