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

My advise to parents and students searching for the right school would be to dig deep, look around the campus and make sure you visit the actual campus and talk to students and professors or advisors. A student should feel welcomed at the school even if they have not decided where they wish to go, they should also feel like they will be in a wonderful learning enviorment, and a safe, friendly enviorment. To get the most out of the college experience, you must become involoved. Volunteer off campus, join clubs, go to sponsored events, and attend student held lectures or events. Finding the right college for you is sometimes difficult but makes all the difference in the world.

Make sure to visit the colleges that you are considering. Ask lots of questions and don't just talk to your tour guide, talk to students around campus, it will give you a much better impression of what the students really think of their school. If you have the chance try an overnight stay, you'll get a good look at what everday life is like at the school/s you're interested in. Try and keep an open mind while doing your college searching, you may find that your needs and preferences change as you visit different schools. Once you choose your school and start your first semester try to get out of the dorm and involved in different activities so that you can make friends in different places. Try to fit some studying in if you're a party animal because at some point all that work you didn't do will catch up with you. But don't worry too much, that class you're sure you're going to fail will probably not be as bad as you think it is. And remember to always keep a positive attitude, it can make or break a situation.

There aren't enough guys at UMW, but I know that admissions is trying hard to boost the male population.

Go visit all of the colleges in person. Trust your gut. You'll know once you set foot on a campus whether or not it's right for you.

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

Stick with your instincts. If you feel like one school just isn't right, don't commit to four years there. Also, make sure that they offer a wide range of majors that interest you instead of just one. That way, if you want to change directions you can do so without changing schools.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The school offers very little engagin options for entertainment that don't involve parties and drinking. Most events, when offered, were of little interest to the students.

What's unique about your campus?

A strong sense of community, even among individuals of different social groups.

Very friendly, very giving.

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

Do you like large crouds and partying, or do you like small crounds and intimate conversations. That makes the biggest difference in choosing your school. I started out at a school with 40,000 undergrad, and quickly realized I needed a place where my teachers were reachable, and actively involved in my learning.

You have to find a place that makes you feel comfortable. For me it was a small school and being in an old town. Dont go where your high school friends go. College is for making new friends and going new places.
