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

Do not make your decision too fast. This is a choice that you may depend upon for the rest of you life.

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.

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.

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

To find the right college, I would visit as many schools as possible. It is important to visit areas of the campus that you or your child will be a part of, such as the business college or English department. These are the places where the most time will be spent, and getting a feel for them and whether or not you are comfortable there will make the adjustment to the school easier. It is also important to check out not only the campus but also the town, because the social aspect of college is really important and will make that transition away from home even easier.

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

It's small variety of people and entertainment.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants to experience an urban college.

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

I would strongly suggest they tour schools that they are interested in and choose the campus that has a good environment. They should also consider what kind of learning experience they would be most comfortable in. In order to do well in college, I would suggest using the schools resources well. Most schools offer many resources such as a place for career exploration, a counceling center, and a learning center. Talking with the teachers is a very good idea, whether they are struggling or not. Over anything else I suggest getting to know other students, and finding friends. In tough situations, it really helps to have someone who cares about you along your side.

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

A small college based on research. Classes are small so teachers can focus on each student more.
