Mount Union College is very helpful in providing the academics and support to allow students to achieve thier dreams of going into a certain profession.

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

In order to choose the right college you need to go out and experience all the different options. Use careful planning based on your sitution and visit the ones that interest you and you may be surprised. College is supposed to be the best four years of your life, but it will not be if you do not enjoy where you are. When you get on campus, you always have to ask youself, "can I see myself here?" If you can't, then you know the answer to whether you should go there or not already. Make sure that the college you choose also follows in your beliefs. Your college choice should fit you, you should not try to fit into the collge. Overall, go in open minded and enjoy every minute! :-)

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about our school is the involvement the school has on and off campus. There is a lot of work from students that do community sercvice and helping out the local communities as well as helping the students on campus. There is a great support system within this school and I am really proud to have attended here.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for its academics and its football team. Mount Union strives to provide an outstanding academic program to its students across all of the academic disciplines. We have great professor to student ratios, we have appropriate facilities and educational tools. The classroom environments are encouraging and supportive, and the staff is as well. Mount Union also adequately prepares its students for their futures. In adiition we are well known because of our football team; the team has 9 national championship trophies and a wide array of spectacular athletes thanks to the head coach, Larry Kehres.

Mount Union is a small college that allows for personal interaction with professors and other students. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to help. You have the ability to get involved in various organizations and to get close with a wide range of students. Mount Union is also very academically driven; I knew that I would get a great education here and I also knew that my major would better prepare me for graduate school or a career.

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

In order to find the right college, parents and students should take a number of actions. First, they should research a wide array of colleges and universities. Once they have gathered information on various schools, they should evaluate schools on what seems like the best fit for their son or daughter. In order to validate their top choices, they should make arrangements to tour the schools. In order for the students to get a true feel for the school, they should schedule a stay over and sit in on classes that they may be interested in taking. In addition, students should apply for financial aid and as many scholarships as possible; an education is very expensive and students should do whatever they can to acquire financial help. In order to make the most of your college experience, I would stress the importance of getting involved. By getting involved, you have the chance to meet new people and to also find out what you are trully made of. In addition, getting involved allows students to learn how to manage busy schedules. I would also urge students to study hard; academic success will prepare them for their futures.

The winning football program. Newer, modern science building.

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

I would tell students to pick the school in which they feel most at home. After all, you will be spending four or more years at the school you pick, so you want to be comfortable there. Visit the school more than once. Sometimes you can't get a good feel of what the school is really like on the first visit, so it is best to come for a few visits before making a decision. To make the most out of your college experience you need to get a group of friends that are as focused as you are on what they want in life. You don't need to hang around with people who aren't focused on there academics because they will distract you from what is important-- your academics.

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

Visit the campus during busy school hours to see what it's like during class hours. Students are encouraged to stay overnight (dorms are suggested) on a visit to see what the social life/academic life is like during the week or on the weekends. Make sure you know if you want to attend a smaller campus where you can be involved in more individual help or a larger campus for a more sociable experience. Check the majors and minors that are offered and some of the extracurricular activites you can be involved in. Visit the dorms/apartments and be aware of the surrounding neighborhoods for safety and knowledge of social awareness.

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

You must take numerous general education courses to graduate. I'd rather take more courses on my major and minor rather than taking classes I have no interest in.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

One who loves to party during the week and wouldn't be focused on their school work shouldn't attend. One who wouldn't attend classes regularly and isn't interested in finding their future career shouldn't attend. You must attend classes and spend the majority of your free time studying to succeed at this school.

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

When looking for a college, think about location and cost. Some people prefer staying close to home, some do not. This is important in remaining at college. Cost is very important too. There are many great colleges and some are more affordable than others. Take this into consideration because no one wants to be in serious dept immediately upon graduation. While at college, take advantage of the atmosphere and the many activities offered. This will increase your social network, and it will make your college experience more enjoyable. Having friends makes the adjustment easier and soon you will feel very at home. As far as classes go, make sure you attend as often as possible. Skipping class can be detrimental. You are paying to be there, so you might as well get your money's worth. Attending class and keeping up with the homework will make your life so much easier. College does not have to be difficult if you can learn how to appropriately manage your time. There is plenty of time for friends and parties, so focus on your work during the week. This will lead to great success!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the small class size and the availability of professors. This allows for more attention per student so you always get the help you need. Also, the professor are very proficient in their specific fields. They are always willing to help a student, and want every student to be successful. The small class sizes make the lectures more personal and interactive. It is easy to get the entire class engaged, which makes it easier to learn.

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

The worst thing about this school is how expensive it is. Since it is a private school, it costs a lot more. I know many wealthy people attend this college, but for middle class citizens like myself, it is a burden trying to find ways to pay. I feel I should be entitled to the same liberal arts education as any other person, regardless of socioeconomic status, but the cost makes it much more difficult for me.

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

The aspect of college is something that no one can really describe, you just kind of have to experience it for yourself. Parents and students need to make sure that they are applying to as many scholarships as possible. They need to know that every little bit of money counts, even if it is only fifty or a hundred dollars. The college application process is not something to joke around about, and students need to make sure that when choosing where to attend school, that it is a school that fits their type of lifestyle. From experience, I had the choice to go to a huge university or Mount Union, and due to my lifestyle and personality, I decided that the smaller of the two would work best. College is all about experiencing something new in your life, so when you get there do not sit around and wait for everything to come to you. Make the most of it and get out there to make friends. You never know who you might meet once you start college. It is a whole new stage of your life, so do not pass it by, have as much fun as you can.

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

Well, when you begin college there are thousands of things going through your mind. After being there for a year, the only thing that I wish I had known was just how expensive textbooks were going to be.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

In all honesty, I think that I have met people of all different kinds. I do not think that there is anyone who could not go to this school. I mean the cultural diversity is good, as well as the diversity amongst those who are handicapped or those who do not have a weathly family background. No one should be left out and Mount Union seems to take that statement very seriously.

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

I would tell parents not to stress their children out to much. Don't make this decision process about yourself. When you first get to a college make sure you look at everything! I also recommend to take photos that way you can tell the difference between the colleges. And as cliche as this sounds your child will know the right school at some moment on the tour. You can defintely tell in their face when they found the right one because they can picture themselves there and walkign around with new friends. Also don't put a lot of academic pressure on them. As much as college is about the academics it is also about finding yourself and what you want to really do with the rest of you life. Have fun because you only go to college once!!

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

The cafeteria food. their isn't enough of a variety of food. It is al the same fried unhealthy stuff. With lots of meat which is hard for my friend who is a vegetarian. All she eats are wraps.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

This school is perfect for everyone. You will find something that makes you feel like you belong here.

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

College is the time to experience life and grow up. Go out, make friends, and make mistakes. As long as you learn from these mistakes, you will leave college a better person.

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

The administration is very hard on greek life, to the point of practically strangling it. The greeks do a good job of getting by, and tend to be the happiest individuals on campus, but their rules and regulations are a lot tighter than most colleges or universities.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A shy individual, because professors at this school try to keep everyone involved. Socially, there are too many outgoing people for the shy person to find any help in becoming socialized.

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

Go visit it first! Do your own personal tour instead of going with the group because they will only show the best of the campus and its better to search on your own and talk to students.

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

I wish I would have realized that living in a more of a rural setting would sometimes get boring and old because on weekends students do not always want to go out and drink and party sometimes they are interested in going to a big mall and dinner etc. which is 25 minutes away from campus. Unless you go to the local alliance mall and theatre which isnt bad but doesn't consume the entire night.
