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

i would tell parents not to pressure your children into going to your alma matter and to not pressure your child to major in the area of study that you majored in. and also to parents, to not hold your child back by telling them they should go to a local university. college is all about new experiences, and how can the student experience new things while they are still living at home. i would tell students to not fall behind in studies, and to keep up with homework, because unlike high school, teachers don't really care whether you do your homework every night, most teachers don't check homework, and come the day of the test, you will be very lost if you failed to do your homework. and if you go away to college, it means that your parents won't be there to baby you anymore, so take charge of your life!

What's unique about your campus?

I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere of our campus, the teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful, along with the students that attend this school, when walking to class, most people will smile, or say hi, even if you don't know them.

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

Go to the college that fits your personality. If you are looking fo a crowd and party do the research and find a school that fits that. If you are looking for a school the is academically oriented then research those types. If you are looking to play big sports then find a college that has a good team you can play for. This will enable you to be as satisfied as possible while your at college.

What's unique about your campus?

Our size and location is great. We are located at the heart of culture so we get all the cool festivals as well as a tame mardi gra. Everyone from the surrounding schools comes to party here becuase we got the food and the right amount of people to have a good time.

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

I really don't brag about my school. People usually confuse mine with LSU becuase LSU is the big college here. They sometimes think something like a national competetion that is won for academics is associated with the bigger school when in fact it is UL who is the real winner. It happend more often than not becuase we are smaller.

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

Granted that I'm only in my second year of college, I have found that in order to get the most out of your college experience, knowing what you love and what you want out of life is a good starting point in picking the right university. If you really pursue and work for what you love, than the rest (friends, a job, good grades, etc) will eventually follow. Find the school that you think best emphasizes the things you want, and don't pick a college just becasue your friends are going there. What you get out of this is going to stick with you the rest of your life, so choose wisely, and once you do choose, fully immerse yourself in the experience of it all. Open yourself to different lifestyles and try every new experience you possibly can, so when you look back on your college years, you know you didn't miss out on anything.

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

The amount of financial aid given to students in insufficient. Most of us can barely afford to go to school here.

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

To make the most out of college, you have to be prepared to work hard from day one. Don't slack off - professors want to see you trying hard, and you'll learn more information if you put in enough effort. Treat school like it's your job. Be dedicated and never give up. Even if you look like you're in a slump, if you keep working through it, you may perserve in the end. College may be a great deal of work, but try to remember to have fun, too. These are the "best years of your life." You'll want to excell, but you won't want to only remember the inside of your library or dorm room. If you only focus on school work, you'll stress yourself out and you won't really be getting the full college experience. Meet new people; try new things. Go to a few football games, or join an extracurricular activity. College is supposed to be a learning experience in all the ways of the world.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is afraid to work hard, especially if he/she is a major in one of the more stringent programs like Nursing or Engineering.

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

Parents helping students find the right college should find a school where the student feels comfortable. The parents should be prepared for helping students financially or should offer their help in researching financial aid. A home computer with internet access and printer should be provided for the student to help him or her succeed. Students should explore the campus and find a place to study that works for them. Their are many benefits of belonging to a University including work out facilities, health clinics, and technology labs that sometimes have to be searched for but are nice additions to the college experience. Students should not be afraid to meet and talk with other students in class. Study groups are fun and beneficial. Enjoy your College experience and don't get discouraged. College will fly by and it is worth it!

What's unique about your campus?

School Spirit and how friendly everyone is.

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

More about the parking situation. And I have asthma and had to register with Students with Disabilities and did not know about it until my junior year.

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

You should visit the campus when school is in so you can get a true feel for the student life. Attend as many open housese as possible to really make an informed decision about what school to attend. Talk to as many current students as possible and look into the clubs and groups active on campus. Make sure to visit on campus and off campus housing options.

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

I wish I had know it would be so easy to be accepted and meet new friends.

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

My advice about finding the right college would be to make sure there are a lot of classes offered for the sudent's major. Having different types of classes that pertain to a particular major is very important for students to help them learn more about that subject. It will also help them figure out what type of job they might want to get in the future. Students should take their college experience very seriously. They need to study and put a lot of effort into their school work. However, they should also enjoy themselves and take part in some of the clubs or other organizations on campus. Students should also take advantage of the services that are offered on campus (i.e. career centers, study groups, etc.). College can be a great experience for every student, as long as he or she knows how to manage his or her time and not get too overwhelmed.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the library. We have a lot of books, journals, etc., so it is easy to do research for essays.
