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.
