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

Our school is very economically friendly. We have a very "go green" campus philosphy. We are very grateful to be given such a nice place to learn so we give back by keeping it clean and respectable. Also, our school is known for its friendly atmosphere. Anytime someone walks past you it is almost a rule that you must address the invidual and say hi. I think this gives it a homey feel and it also makes it more inviting to newcomers. Mount Union College is a welcoming place to be and everyone strives to make others feel wanted.

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

It is essential to sit down ahead of time and plan out what is important to you in a school. Schedule campus visits to all schools you are considering; any college can look good on paper but a college is more than the buildings- it is the people and feeling you get when you are there. When finding the college that's right for you, take into consideration the size. Big schools, offer more possibilities and networking but you often become just a number in the classroom where at a smaller school you get more one-on-one attention. Take into consideration the social scenery and emphasis on frat/sorority life. Sure we all want to have fun, but at what point does it become a distraction from your main reason for being there? Remember it is you paying, how will the money be spent?! Keep a clear goal of your future and make sure your college has the resources to get you on the right track as well as enough options in case your mind waivers. Get involved! Not everything you learn will be taught in the classroom. Often times it is learned through intuition and personal experiences.

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

In finding the right college I would advise parents or students to find a college they know that will be in range in tuition. Another factor that comes in is the school size, whether they prefer a large school or a small school. Some advice I would give to making the most of college is to get out there and join student activities. I would tell them to play intramurals join a fraturnity or soroity, even playing a varsity sport if possible.

What's unique about your campus?

The small school atmosphere because I came from a small high school and it allows you to get to know everyone and teachers know on a name to name basis

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

I would have to say that once you know you know. When I walked on campus I felt at home and I knew everything would be alright. You will be away from your family so pick a place that you feel comfortable at. Look at all the majors and activities before you go on a visit. If you don't do that then you might fall in love with a campus that does not offer what you want to do. Just follow your heart and it will work out in your favor.

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

I would consider the worst thing about my school would be the lack of choices on campus to eat.

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

Find a campus that feels right from the start. If you went to a small high school and got tired of the drama...don't pick a small campus. If you want to be lost and no one know your every move, pick a bigger campus. Make sure the college has your major and a strong department. Ask around.

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

It is hard to take some required classes outside of my major and minor. If you aren't good at math, the professor still treats you like you are a math major.

What kind of person should attend this school?

One who likes diversity and small groups of people.

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

The advice I would give parents and/or students about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience is to really do some research. Take a look at the academics offered and how good the academics are. Take a visit to the campus and have a tour with someone during the school year. This will help both the students and parents to see for themselves what the college looks like on a typical day when school is in session. Getting the sight for themselves can help them visualize if that particular college is the right place for them.

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

The worst aspect about Mount Union College is their food service. Everything seems to be taken care of less than expected. The food is never really that tasty and is not preserved right meaning a lot of the food is cold when I get it when the food should be hot or at least warm.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating aspect about my school at Mount Union College is the fact that freshman tend to go home just about every weekend. Freshman are aloud cars which I think provokes them to go home more often. If the school did not allow freshman to have cars on campus, more freshman would more than likely stay and create for a better environment on the weekends.

Visit as many schools as you can. Make sure that they are above and below your price range, varying sizes, and look at schools that are different distances away from home. Make sure that the school has the program(s) you are looking for. Narrow your choices down to a few schools: your dream school, the local community college and a few in between. Revisit those schools and sit down with the admissions and financial aid departments and talk to them. While you are there, talk to faculty in you interested field of study and students who attend the school and get their perspectives about the campus. You are going to be spending a lot of money so you want to make sure you are happy. Starting college is a scary experience. Do not get discouraged if you feel alone and overwhelmed, every one feels that way at the begining of their first semester. Do not run home every chance you get, that just makes you feel more alone. Instead find a group with which you share interests. The sooner you attepmt to make friends the faster you will. College classes are different than high school. Don't give up!

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

I was never taught how to write a paper properly. I wish I would have known that. However, Mount Union has all students take a college writing class during their freshman year to prepare them for college.

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

Make sure you like the environment and surroundings. Also class size and involvement with your professors are very important. If involved with sports or clubs in high school you should look hard for a school that has extracurricular activities so you do not become bored and have an enjoyable college experience!

What's unique about your campus?

Football and friends.

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

Visit the school before you decide. Even if you think that it looks great in pictures or that you would relate to the people, the best way to get the most out of your decision is to visit and see for yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

The atmosphere and location of all the buildings. Its a small private school that offers a nice environment and the campus itself is very appealing.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the small class sizes and the accessibility of my professors. It's really easy to get ahold of them and i think the small class sizes are more personal.

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

The financial aide office is not very accomodating, they suddenly find all these scholarships to help you pay for school only when you threaten to leave and transfer.

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.
