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

That no matter what go for the cheaper school because the education is really basically the same almost no where you go, it is just what you make of it, unless of course you can afford that top notch school or get enough financial aid that you will not be in the slump after.

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

Choose a college that feels right. Think about what you want before making your final decision. For example class/library size, dorm rooms, transportation, faculty/staff, available activities/ sports. Ask yourself if you can see yourself living there and taking classes there for an entire year. Most importantly, determine if you can afford it and if you need scholarships and loans to go there. College will be one of the best times of your life so you have to enjoy it, but also know that it is a lot of work. The key is too know what you want and go for it!

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

There is a few words i would like to tell parents out there who have children that are looking at colleges. Do not force your child to go to a school you went to or would have liked to go. Let them go to the school they want to, where they can get the best experience not you. Its all about us and the rest of our lives. It is a big decision that you should let them decide for themselves. Of course you can give them advice nothing wrong with that but let them have the final word.They know what they want in life and even if they dont going to the college they want may give them the nudge they have been waiting for to figure out where they want to go in life. And all students out there when you find the right college, trust me you will know.

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

Honestly there is nothing i found out after i started going here that would have effected my decision by nowing it beforehand.

Great place for an education but the weekends can be boring if you don't know upperclassmen.

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

If I had to give parents and students advice about finding the right college I would tell them to research and find the schools that offer what they want(make sure you are academically eligible.) The next step is to visit as many colleges as possible. This provides prospective students a first hand look at the school and what it offers. This is how I selected my University. As soon as I stepped on campus I knew that this was me school. Also, do not be afraid to ask questions to the tour guide and students passing by what they think about the school. This will help get a better feel for the school. In order to make most of your college experience, do not sit in your room when you get on campus, but rather go out and meet other students. Participate in the activites put on by the school because this will allow you to make friends. Keep in mind that this is college. It is not all fun and games, so getting your school work done is very important. My advice is get school work done between classes and do not procrastinate until the last minute.

What's unique about your campus?

The dedication to great science courses.

The small scale. Though UNE is mostly a Science school, specifically biological sciences, the Liberal Arts program is really good about keeping their students happy. Advisors are pretty good and the faculty are really interested in finding out what the students want to see.

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

A big part of making the right choice in where to attend college and making the most of the college experience is deciding on the size of the school that you want to attend. If you are more interested in a small college and you go to a big university, then you will not be getting the same kind of experience. Also, it is important to know ahead of time what kind of experience you are looking for in the social aspects. If you are looking for more of a party school, then you should talk to current students about what kind of atmosphere exists on campus and off. Usually, current students will be able to tell you if your prospective school is more a party school or more of a down to earth studious campus. Don't be afraid to talk to the admissions folks, and try to visit as many campuses as you can before applying or choosing your college. Best of Luck!

What's unique about your campus?

The options open to those who chose a Liberal Arts education. The departments are small and you get really close to your professors because they aren't as busy as those for the Sciences . Also, the students and faculty in general are very warm and open to other perspectives.

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

Choosing a college can be overwhelming. It is important to know what you want in a school before beginning the search. Students: What interests you? Where do you want to go? How much do you want to spend? Rely on your guidance counselor to help you through the process. Parents: Stay on top of the college-search, and remind your students of deadlines for schools and scholarships. They may be almost high school graduates, but they can still be forgetful and busy. Most importantly, visit the schools you like. College students love giving tours, and there is nothing more valuable to the decision making process than talking with students and getting a feel for what the campus is like. When you get to school, GET INVOLVED! There is nothing worse than spending your freshman year missing home and holding yourself back from new experiences because you are scared. Break out of your shell. Join clubs that interest you; it is a great way to meet new people. The friends you make will get you through the tough times: laughing with you and teaching you new things. College can be the best four years of your life. Don?t have regrets.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the small class sizes, because it allows students to interact much better with the professors, and they get to know you very well. We are not just faces in a crowd. All the professor have office hours and will make appointments with you that fit into your schedule to answer your questions.

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

I wish I had realized how important it is to be outgoing and immediately put yourself out there at school to make friends and join clubs. I am doing that more this year than I did last year, but it is so great if you can do it right at the beginning. The more people you meet and the more activities you participate in, the richer your college experience. Just don't get so busy that you burn yourself out!

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

Find a college that you love the atmosphere of and then make a list of everything that you love about it and also what you are not so sure of. Then find a way that you can talk to an alum or someone who currently goes there because the wil be the most honest about the experience there. Ask them about the things you put on both sides of your list and if you don't feel confident enough;talk to another person. And after you feel you have found the perfect school, think how you are going to pay for that education. There is always a way but you don't want to have to think about all of them when the tuition bill gets mailed out. My biggest piece of advice is plan ahead. In life you will always have surprises but when there are oportunities to lessen the amount you go for it.

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

How much it was going to cost me to attend the school, not just the tuition and room and board. But money used to go out to eat and enjoy time with friends; basically just to keep up with people who were much better off than I am.

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

Sometimes people can be closed minded about money. Some people just assume since you go to that school that you can afford everything and anything your heart desires. But at the same time nobody is perfect and they just haven't experience poverty so you can't really blame them.

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

Are school is a small tight knit school. I felt like i was welcomed with open arms when i visited it while i was in high school. the college continues to grow as we speak. they have added more buildings and more students the past 2 years. sports are a big part of a school and the sports are getting better and better making the atmosphere at school awesome.

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

Ask alot of questions. That is probabaly the one thing that students and parents don't do when they go one there college visitations. Also to students do what you want not what your parents want, if they want you to go to a huge school that has a great name but you want to go to a smaller school your parents have never heard of go where you want to. When you go to the school make use of every oppurtunity presented to you, if you feel you might want to do something but your not sure i say do it. you wont regret it and you may meet some new people. Also try and avoid going home or leaving campus alot, the people who did not like my school are the kids who left almost every weekend. if you leave all the time you can't make connections with people.

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

the people here are amazing. the people is what make this school great, you meet a diverse group from across the country and now around the world. there are several students from around the world, a very unique place.
