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

My advice would be to take your time, and figure-out exactly what each student will want from their collegate experience. There are so many different kinds of colleges and universities, but a variety does not mean better or worse. The difference is a necessity, and you need to find the one for you. Just because you hear of someone not succeeding at a school does not mean it's a poor school, just that it wasn't right for them. If you know you want to learn, but have trouble motivating yourself, choose a bigger school with difficult, structured classes. If you know that you have a passion for learning and like to make things happen for yourself, choose a school like mine, where the course load is managable, the resources avaliable on-campus are incredible, and the faculty are more than happy to meet outside of class to discuss material in their feild of expertise, but not necessarily course related; I am thus provided with both the time and tools to learn exactly what I want to. To discover what you need out of a school beforehand challenging, but it's worth the time and energy.

What's unique about your campus?

The student-run Clubs and Organizations. All you need is two people with a common interest and a committment to make things happen, and you can start your own club. Being a club means you are able to reserve rooms on-campus, as well as apply for budget from University Student Government. Two people is all it takes.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Some who has a passion for learning. Though the Professors don't always push me to my utmost academically, they always encourage further learning, as well as offer guidance and resources. The University has good resources and facilities avaliable, so if you have a passion, you can make excellent things happen, but you must want to do it yourself, and not need someone hold your hand, or else you'll coast like everyone else.

Make sure you look into the types of classes that you would like. If you are unsure about what you want to major in then go to a school that has many different major selections. If you do know the major you want then go to a school with a great program in it.

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

To find the right college the student needs to know what exactly they want out of school and what kind of person they are. If the student goes a college that is compatible with their academic, social, and extracurricular goals then they are already making a great choice for themselves. The parents need to support their childs choice in school and get to know the school as much as they can. If the parent can support their child then both will have a good experience throughout the college experience. To make the most of the college experience the student should join extracurriculars the they enjoy, not just ones that will look good on a resume. This way the student is guarenteed to have fun and hopefully do something good for the community and school. The main thing to really getting the most out of college is to relax. Don't stress too much and learn to balance fun and academics. If the student can balance those two things then they are guarenteed to have a great college experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person who should attend this type of school is some one who wants a small school where the classes are smaller. They want to recieve more individualized attention. This is not a party school so someone who is more focused on academics and great opportunities for extracurriculars should really consider the University of New England.

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

What i most brag about is our athletics and housing. Both are great. Its fun to support the athletic teams and they all do really well in their seasons. Housing here is nice, especially once someone hits sophmore year.

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

The advice that I give to parents and students about finding the right college fit is to truly be sure to visit many different types of schools in different locations. Be sure to go on student given tours at schools, sit in on a few classes, shadow a student from your potential major, and be sure to stay the night in the area and walk around the town or the city. Really try to get a feel for how it would be to live, learn, and have fun at that school. Most often your first impression of the campus, the vibe you get even just stepping out of the car, is crucial in your decision making. Advice I give about making the most about college experience is to rely on time management. It is important to fit in activities around class schedules and to remember that school always comes first. Attending classes is crucial, you show your professors that you care about learning and that you respect them. Involvement in extracuricular activities is a great way to make friends and expand your knowledge. Taking leadership roles gives you confidence and great preparation for future work experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I think that school is the perfect fit for just about every type of person. It is possible to find any kind of activity that you might be interested in on this campus. The school is close to the city of Boston for those that like to hang out in the big city and near the mountains for those that like to enjoy the great outdoors. There are equal amounts of place to study and to hang out. I feel that this school has a great balance.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I feel that the most frusterating thing about my school is that there are so many clubs and organizations that I want to be involved with, but it is impossible to fit everything in. It seems that campus events are not always spread out enough.

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

The University of New England provides a good education but at the cost of a smaller atmoshpere and little else to do on weekends. There are a few activities but not all the time.

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

To find the right college you really need to know how big of a school your looking for. You also want to experience as much of what each school you will apply to has to offer to you as a student and as a person. Tour the campus, ask a lot of questions; this is what needs to be done in order to make the best college choice. If you pick the best school for you then you are almost guarenteed a great college experience. The school you attend will have everything you are looking for.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The person to attend this school should really want a small school atmosphere. They have to feel comfortable in a somewhat boring atmosphere. Therefore they should be well equipped with making friends in order to occupy themselves in their free time.

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

Colleges are like people, each one is different, and there's one out there for everyone. Some do well in big/small schools, others need an intermediate sized school. In the end, having a supporting family who is there, and will help in anyway needed is the best. Don't be afraid to go out there and find new friends, but don't let the socializations take too much of their free time though, otherwise it will affect their grades.

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

The acceptance rates, or that they would accept more students than they can handle in the doorms, now I have to live off campus senior year.
