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

The main advice I would offer is to find out what your interests are. Many students attend business schools or may major in a business field because they think a career in that field will be the most lucrative. However, sometimes these students find themselves performing poorly in school because they did not choose a college or major that matches their interests or goals in life. After finding a college that will allow you to explore your interests, I would recommend getting involved in campus activities, such as clubs, plays, or other special events. Not only could you meet many friends from these activities, but you could learn a lot and gain lifelong memories. Study habits are extremely important in college. You must learn not to procrasinate, as it could result in a large amount of assignments due at the end of the semester. It is also best to study in groups, as engaging in discussion about the subject will help you to absorb the information better. The best college advice to remember: learn a lot, make yourself a better person, and have a great time!

What's unique about your campus?

Most of the professors at the school are very knowledgable and engaging. The staff, particularly at the library, is very helpful and they genuinely seem to care about students' needs. Class sizes are pretty decent, and there is usually an abundance of on campus activities in which to participate.

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

I wish I had a better idea of how exactly to choose classes, and that I was probably better off moving onto campus.

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

Follow your bliss, that wherever it leads you you'll have a place in your heart to cradle life's lessons. Intellect must be nourished with passion, just as passion demands knowledge of some sort. Know and love the work you do. Know and love the people you work with. These people will help you follow your bliss as you grow older-- and help you fashion it as you grow all together.

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

There is no real place for students (commuters and residents) to hang out on campus, and not much of a social scene that doesn't involve drinking. Academically, UMass Dartmouth is very sound -- but it still hasn't figured out the socialization part as well as it could.

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

Before deciding which college to attend, students need to visit a variety a colleges and seriously consider all of their options. They need to look at the majors offered, what residence life is like and the activities offered at the school. Once students pick a college and starts school, the student needs to be sure to get involved. School isn't purely about classes, it is also about the things you do outside the classroom. Clubs, sports, fraternities/sororities and the like are where students are going to meet the majority of their friends. Plus, when you meet your friends at activities such as those, you instantly have something in common with the people you are meeting.

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

The worst thing about my school is the school's appearance. It has been said that it looks like a jail. But it is a great school once you get over the appearance.

my classmates are everything from emp to preppy. there are a lot more girls than boys, depending on the class. a lot of my classmates are either nursing or business majors just trying to get classes just to meet the requirements of their major.

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

in order to make the most out of college, no matter what college it is, make sure to join some kind of social group on campus because it looks good on your resume and it opens your eyes to a lot of cultures snd diversity. if you do plan to become part of greek life make sure to do your research on all of them, and not just the ones that catches your eyes, because they are life long brother/sisterhoods. and if money is tight in your family think about becoming a residential assistant(ra) because it will help to cut costs off your tuition, and maybe get you some money back.

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

before coming to this school i wish i knew how diverese this school was not. there is more of one group of people than there is others., which can sometimes make a person out of place because when they are the only one sitting in the room, for that ethnictiy, they feel like people do not understand where they are coming from when the make their point(s).

My school is probably best known for the diversity of people that attend here. It is a state school, so there is a very large and ethnically diverse population.

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

Make sure that you tour the colleges you want to go to so you can get an idea of what they are like. Talk to people who go there and preferably are in your program of interest.

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

I wish that I had knownexactly how much work college is. At first I was taken aback but I have adjusted to it it by now.

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

Don't settle for anything less than you're looking for in a school. Don't go to a big school if you want small classes; go to a big school if you're into school pride and sports. Take the time to meet the faculty before you accept, you need to spend four years with them. Make sure it has the resources and technology that you need to succeed, that the learning environment is right for you and the extacurricular activities that you're interested are offered, or if not, you at least have the option of starting them yourself. College is one of the greatest times in a student's life, you need to make sure you pick a school you can take pride in.

My classmates at Umass dartmouth are very intuivtive to evrything that surrounds our campus because in my opion it is quite small for a state school.

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

To parents and students of upcoming senior high school graduates, I would personally advice you to take your time and understand all the ins and outs of a school, better yet your child should defenitly try to have an overnight visit. It is also very imperative that Parents should allow their children to make their decision, please whatever you students have learned at least no that it is your life and your choices. When all is said and done and you look back on life realize that the only person who counts in decision making is you.

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

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

UMass Dartmouth is, for the most part, comprised of dedicated teachers, diverse students, and well-paid board members; the art department needs funding, the financial-aid office needs motivated people, the school store is a little over-priced, and the campus itself is a little drab (but that can be over-looked).

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

Please pay attention to the charges each semester, as they not only may go up, but could include things you don't have to pay for if you are not using them, such as sports facilities. Stay on top of financial aid applications; the sooner they're filled out, the better. Scholarships should be a weekly, if not monthly, activity for the student. Make sure the school is everything it's cracked up to be. Ask students who aren't part of the tours what campus and college life is like in that school. They'll be much more apt to tell the brutal truth than a student tour guide who may whitewahs issues to downplay them. Talk to teachers, ask if you can sit in on a class or watch for a portion of the lesson. Find a job. Whether or not you have scholarships, grants, financial aid, or loans, the bills will be there waiting for you after graduation. Do your best to save up and pay a large portion off ASAP. The less you owe, the shorter the span of time you'll be paying off your school debts, and that's a step towards bigger things.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is great for anyone, but definitely leans toward strong liberal political trends.
