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

Just make sure that you are prepared for a new place, and harder courses than high school, but also consider how much you really think you can pay per year, because, in this economy, student loans are becoming harder to find and I personally would prefer not to have to transfer if I can no longer afford this school because my friends here are like family and I don't know what I would do without them. Also, for those of you who don't know this, if you transfer, the credits from the previous school should count for the school you are moving to, but your GPA starts over, which I guess could really make or break a lot of people!

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

The weather can be pretty terrible, but the thing I dislike most is that my school keeps accepting more students each year without proper housing. They are slowing putting up new buildings for classrooms and other academic resources, but about 200 upperclassmen were wait-listed for housing last year because the freshman class was about 200 more than our freshman class and the school has not yet made a new dorm room to accomodate these extra students. If they really want to expand, then they need to be prepared, which they obviously were not!

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is very diverse, both in ethnicity and personalities, but I would suggest for all schools, staying within about three hours from home unless you are positive it won't effect you because I have recently seen someone transfer since they couldn't handle the stress of school without their family. This is understandable, but many of the typical majors here are very difficult and you need to be able to deal with a new environment, and most likely harder courses.

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

Most of all think of what you can afford. A lot of people have the outlook of that they are gonna be in debt anyway so they will just go for the gold, but really you should think affordably. Think in-state schools or even schools that are known for their scholarships. Before you pick a school it is also nice to go on a tour of the campus but also to go on a tour that isn't done by a tour guide because you want to see the real side of your future school instead of the pretty packaged one that will be served to you. After you have picked your school and once you get there, understand that at first it will be a little hard to make friends because everyone might be a little overwhelmed just like yourself, get in touch with a counselor to make the transition easier. My biggest advice on how to make the most of your colege experience is to find that happy medium between school work and a social life, to understand it's a give and take and there is nothing wrong with doing homework.

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

We have an amazing Marine Science center where we rehab seals and turtles so they can be released back into their natural habitats. Also we have a private beach on campus and this school is known for its research and medical history.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Sometimes I feel left out because of my financial status and sometimes its hard to find something to do.

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

Make sure that the student is looking for a smaller school. Visiting the school is important to know if it's the "right school for you". I would advice the students not to sign into any contracts before the options are laid out, ex. signing a housing contract for 3 years really hurt financially. People could save close to $8000 a year on housing and other expenses.

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

The cafeteria food is terrible. The on-campus housing is rediculously expensive.

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

I brag about the student/teacher ratio. I brag about the location and the views.

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

When it comes to choosing the right college it is important to check out the campus first hand and talk to the people that are there. Must students will share the good and the bad aspects of their campus so you get a good whole picture of what the college is like. While at college there are three important things to do to make the most of it, make friends, get active, and go to class. Friends are great support group for everything, from dealing with classes, having fun, and distressing. Being active on and around campus is great for building you're resume and gaining experience, but also great for finding friends and feeling good about yourself. Most important go to class. To many people forget the importance of maintaining grades that they end up failing out, and that is the worst thing that can happen. It also takes away from the fun of the college experience if you have to worry about class work that you missed.

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

To the parents the financial aid is the hardest part but after that its smooth sailing, also help your kids for the first couple of years finacially before cutting them loose to fend for themselves. When picking the right college make sure its somewhere you want to be because you will be spending a lot of your time there, be sure tol look at the students there and your surroundings. When in college don't stay in your room the whole time either it is important to make new friends and experience new things, i believe it will help you grow as a student and a person

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A student who is interested in a science field should attend this school. I also think that you should eba hard working student becasue these classes and assignments can be very tough.

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

On your college visits, make sure you talk to real students, not just your tour guide! Look at how resources are divided between departments to see how the school really values each area of majors. Making the most of college is just that, something to be made, it doesn't happen on its own. It takes time to find your best friends, so keep a very open mind and try everything that comes your way. Keep your door open, get to know your neighbors, and talk to your classmates. Having a sense of humor will get you through any situation. Its ok to change your mind later, no matter what you said before. Spend your time and money wisely -- that is, this is your one chance to have a little fun! Be responsible. Know that you will change, probably a lot. So will everyone else. When in doubt, crisis, or confrontation, act confident and mature, even if all you want to do is hide under the covers with a cookie and a stuffed animal. Laugh. Persue your desires, no matter what others think. Don't let anyone stop you, this is your life.

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.

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

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.
