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

Go and take a campus tour because this will help you find the right environment and get to know some prospecting students and the students already attending.

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

I find that no matter what school a student chooses to attend, they will make it work for them. No school is perfect, and each has it's own strengths and weaknesses, both which can provide a student an interesting and exciting experience. A big part of college is just being thrown into a situation where they'll have to fend for themselves, and that's is what is so exciting! Unfortunately, while many people want to ignore the money factor, it is an important part of the college experience. In recent years, with the US in a state of recession, the last thing a student wants to worry about is whether or not they will be able to pay for next semester. I would tell students and parents to look into scholarships, grants and internships that will help them finance their education.

What's unique about your campus?

It's like it's own small community. My school is set-off from the rest of the city, so it's like it's own country. You feel safe and it's just the right size that you can get around by walking.

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

I wish I had known how to balance school, extra-curricular activities, friendships and relationships before my life became so chaotic!

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The overall architectural design of the school is different than much others. The simplicity of the concrete walls gives the student less distractions in the class room, providing a better learning environment.

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

In order to make the most of your college experience, I suggest getting involved in school activities. Whether it is sports, clubs, sororities/ fraternities, etc., you will enjoy your time away at school much more. I also suggest not taking this oppurtunity for granted. If you do not put an effort into your school work, you will fail out. Manage your time.

What's unique about your campus?

The staff is the best thing about Umass Dartmouth. They are very helpful and encouraging! The freshman visual arts advisor, Bruce Maddocks, is extremely helpful and truely cares about the students.

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

I would say to look at medium sized universities instead of small, specialized schools. A University has more options so you can change your mind if need be. The fact that the school is not large but still isn't small allows for the maximum amount of navigation and creates a more at home feeling.

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

I wish I had known how expensive art supplies are.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The housing situation is pretty frustrating. They overbook every year and it causes a lot of stress among the students. If you pay your deposit on time though you will get housing, it just might take a semester.

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

Pick somewhere that you feel comfortable. Visit the campus before commiting, and if you can't see yourself there, dont go.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The lack of compliance of faculty to work with students to get things done.

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

Very bland because all the buildings are concrete. And the campus is a ghost town on weekends.

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

Honestly, really think about what choices your are making. If all of a sudden you honestly feel sick, and restless and undecided in whatever decision or choice you are making, hold off. Do not rush. Take the time and at least know you are taking a chance and feel comfortable with that. The most important, just be happy with your choices. Think ahead! Think of the worst case scenarios, even thou it might sound like a very pessimistic advice, I believe it is a very realistic one. In today?s economy and with my past experiences I would not recommend anything else. Because, really, anything is possible, and things sometimes just happen out of no where, they are not predictable, but they are manageable, its just a matter of how prepared one if to deal with certain situations.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who dont mind living somewhat far from a major city

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates at Umass Dartmouth seems to dissapoint me overall. Most of the students I run into are very self involved and take the opportunity of education for granted. The majority of them I belive have never had to apply for a loan on their own or even had to think about school payments.

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

In regards to advice I would give a student about finding the right college and making the most of their college expereince would be to not worry so much about what acedemic field or plan you will be as you are entering college. I think one of the most imporatant aspects of a first year at any college would be to participate in as many different types of acedemic disciplines as possible in order to get not only a well rounded education, but alsouse the inderdisciplinary approach to meet an array of classmates. Once established in a major, one is normally around the same students as you are required to take the same core classes.

What's unique about your campus?

The best aspect of my school would be the opportunities given to the student to give back to the surrounding community of New Bedofrd. With Umass Dartmouth as such a melting pot of resources it is nice to see students try and assimilate the campus community with the outside communities. It is important for a wealthy resource to give back to less fortunate surroundings.

dont go to far away from where you live, there is nothing worse than not having anyone to hang out with.
