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

Although it is hard to find financial aid and the price of college is such a burden these days, attend a college that you want to attend to make you feel comfortable and happy. Don't get stuck in the rut of choosing the cheapest college and being miserable for four yearsl

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

Between the residential food, the living conditions in the dorms, and the continous partying- it's a tie for first

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

When I looked at colleges the one thing I looked at was location. Do you want to stay close to home, or go as far away as possible, do you want the city or rural area, etc. The size was very important to me also. I wanted a school that wasn't too big or too small, and UMASS Dartmouth is just right. Another thing to look at is the student-to-teacher ratio. Smaller classes are better because there is more one-on-one interaction with the teachers. And its always a big help to pick a school that has your major if you already know what you want to do before starting. Choose a school that has a good reputation for what you're majoring in. Choosing UMASS Dartmouth was the best decision I 've made. College is supposed to be the best years of your life and so far it has. You just have to make the most of it. College isn't exactly easy, you just have to try your hardest and have fun. You have to be able to balance your academics with your social life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Absolutely anyone. It's a very diverse college and everything seems to get along. I don't think there is one particular type of person who should go there. It makes it more interesting when everyones different.

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

Well I have a few good friends who went there too, they already graduated. Sometimes I may say that UMASS Dartmouth has a very good reputation for its arts program- the graphic design, photography and other art majors. I think it is a very good school. I'm very happy there.

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

UMass Dartmouth is a very isolated school without being completely out of touch with the world around. It's surrounded by woods and yet is still only 30 minutes from a T station that has access to the rest of the state including Boston.

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

Making the most of the college experience is not something that can be done based solely upon the experiences of other. Every person has their own unique interests. So the best advice to be given is to simply look really hard at who YOU are as a person and what YOU'RE looking for in a college. Not what a college has for you, or what a benefit this college will be to you, but how are you going to cope with being here? If you love the city, choosing a college in the boonies will not satisfy your need for an urban environment. If technology is your forte' avoid looking into schools that focus in art. All of this is basic common sense, but finding a college that is right for you is more about finding that "fit". It doesn't sound like much on paper, but upon arriving at a school most people can just tell weather or not it will work for them. So visit your colleges of choice and be sure to talk to some of the people there, not just the tour guides, they are paid to sell the school. Good Luck.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about the school is the isolation, being able to be separate from the surroundings is nice, however having to add a hour minimum travel time to any trip to a club or beach is a big inconvienence.

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

The only advice I can give future college students is to really look into each school they apply to and also do their homework on what major their thinking of doing. Don?t judge a school on its appearance or the tuition cost. Some of the best schools are the ones most people over look.

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

The exact work level each major is made up off. I would have probably picked another major other than Chemistry.

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

The relitive small size of the school and surrounding communities.

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

One: visit the campus. Do you feel comfortable on that campus? Do you like the classrooms? Do you like the cafeteria and dorms? Do you like the quad, if there is one? Two: keep your major and the availability of other majors in mind. Does your top school offer your major? How good is the department? And if you decide you want to choose your major, how easy would that be? Three: know how much the school offers in terms of financial aid and scholarships. Price shouldn't have to keep you back, but that isn't always the reality of the matter. Four: it is important to keep in mind the way classes are set up. Do you like big lecture classes, or more one-on-one time? Do you like just taking notes, or doing hands on labs and research? Five: Would you have a strong social network on campus? Would you have a group of friends to turn to if you needed to? Or would you feel isolated and alienated? College is a great time for social growth as well as academic growth. College should be an exciting time in life. Keep that in mind.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If a person is used to a small-town feeling, this is definitely a good school. Otherwise, the campus is diverse and accomodating. No one should feel left out.

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

It really comes down to how hard the student is planning on working as to how good of an education they will recieve. If the courses wanted are offered and the person is willing to work as hard as they can to learn as much as they can, then any school is as good as any other.

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

That it isn't as bad of an adjustment as everyone was warning me it was.

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

That the weekends are usually alcohol or nothing to do.

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

The complicated bus route system to get off campus. Since if you dont have a car you don't get off campus.
