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

I say this to parents and students. Pick the college by what feels right to you. If you go on five campus visits don't just pick the one that is closest to home or to where you friend is going to school or living. Instead pick the college that has what you feel is what you want, after all it is where you are going to be for the next four plus years of your life so make it what you want. Parents, please do no persuade your kids to live at home to save money. I know that by doing so will save thousands of dollars, but your child will never experience life in a residence hall or living with someone other than you. Residence halls are a great way to build social skills and also a good start at networking which may come in handy later in life. In addition, meet with some of the teachers in your field(if you have chose one yet) and feel them out. Maybe you won't even like them. Or maybe it could be the final decision in deciding between two schools.

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

I wish I would have understood financial aid more before attending. Also I wish I would have known my major but that is hard to determine but sometimes your school doesnt have the best field of study for your major.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person who shouldn't attend this school is someone that is pessimisstic and is just here to go to class and nothing else. While the university doesn't offer a lot of different options to do besides academics someone should experience as many as possible.

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

Excellent class size. The classes are small enough that the professors can get to know you, but not so small that you feel like you are answering all of the questions.

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

I would first tell them that they need to be very careful about how much their education would cost at the school. It is very important to attend a college that is affordable and offers the most grants or financial aid so that there is no need to get tied into private student loans. I would also tell them to interview the professors that they will be interacting with during their time at school so that they know what is expected of them as a student. Another very important point to consider is attending a college that is safe and promotes healthy living. You do not want to attend a school where drugs and alcohol are the center of student entertainment. Finally, I would speak to the career services center to find out what the ratio is of students who are able to obtain jobs after graduating.

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

I talked about the classes I take that offer trips abroad and internship that are hands on with your interests.

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

Kearney has the experiences of a large city university, but its in a small town setting. The mixture of local kids from the town and the state mixes very well with the out of state and exchange students.

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

When finding the right college I think that it is important that the student feels safe and comfortable on campus. The mixture of the students social life and academic life have to both be stimulated. They say that best friends are made in highschool, but your life long friends are made at college, so a campus that is open and easily navigated for social events is also good.

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

I wish I would of know what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

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

When looking for the right college toi best suit you or you son or daughter some important things to consider is what size of town you are comfortable in. Also what class sizes you want and how far away from home you are comfortable being. My advise for making the most of your college experience is to get involved. There are so many organizations and activities on campus and it is a great way to meet friends and have fun. Also to make the most of your college experience dont drink alcohol or do drugs. Even though it seems like the cool thing to do sometimes there are tons of better things to do every weekend.

What kind of person should attend this school?

All varieties of people fit in here.
