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.

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.

Same as question above. The atmosphere here and the feeling you get here is unmatched by any other school. The people are very genuine and really take the time.

My number 1 piece of advice would be to check out ULL. It is a great school. But, I would also tell students that it really doesn't matter what College you choose, they will all give you about the same education. You get out of college what you put into it so it is important to pick a college that you like and feel a connection to so that you will put the most into it and get the most out of it.

What's unique about your campus?

The atmosphere here. Everyone is friendly, eager to help, and a lot of fun!

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

Pick a college that has a strong program in which you would like to pursue! Entering as a freshman, try to enroll in as many extracurricular activities as possible. It's a great way to meet new people and it looks great on a resume. Once you get towards the end of your college degree you'll wish you had participated in waaaaay more. Don't rush your experience! It's a great one. After college comes the real world....which isn't all that great!

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

I would advise parents that they should never pressure their children into choosing a school or major. This time in our lives is crucial, and extremely beneficial to the rest of our lives. When parents force their ideas or opinions on their children, the students generally do not do as well in school, and become unhappy. Parents should allow the students to search for themselves, and guide them by sharing wisdom. These four years allow the students to develop into adulthood. While it is not the end of the world if the students decide they want to go in a completely different direction than they have been going for the past years, it will save them a lot of time and money if they would have just explored their options and decided for themselves. In the case of students, the only advice I have is to enjoy themselves. We will have careers for the rest of our lives, and it is too much pressure to consider school as their career for the moment being. While schoolwork is especially crucial to being successful, it is more necessary to keep yourself happy and form a strong sense of self.

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

There is a little problem with racism, since it is the deep south.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone that wants to focus solely on schoolwork and have no social experiences.
