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

The only piece of advice I would give is to choose your college soley on your own needs. A college should'nt be chosen based on friendships and parties and other factors that dont promote an effective education.

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

I wish that i was aware of the financial aid issue. The bursars office fails to do their job of letting students know they have a balance on their account.

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

Mostly I brag about the feeling of having a family at the university. Everyone at the school is so friendly and welcoming which promotes a better academic outcome.

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

I would tell the parents that they should search for schools such as UNH that offer a lot of finacial aid. I would tell the students that they should really be serious about attending college and not take there education for granted because many kids are not afforded the chance. All in all, I would tell them to start searching ealry and take all factors into considerationsuch as, campus housing, tuition of course, professors, job placement, and campus safety.

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

The tuition. It is a very expensive private school. For me to attend I have to rely heavily upon finacial aid.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The tuition. It is frustrating at times worrying where the money you need is going to come from.

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

the most important thing to do when picking a school is to actually visit the school. It's amazing how many people don't even visit the school they end up going to. durring this visit, ask to take a tour of the campus and see what it has to offer. Make sure you see everything from the dorms to the classrooms. It is important to keep in mind that you could be spending the next four years of your life at this place. Also, while you take a tour of the campus look at how the students interact with each other and how the professors interact with the students. one of the most important things you can do (after the tour is over) is take a student who is in the area aside and ask him or her a few questions. Keep in mind that the people giving the tours of the campus are only going to show you the possitive things. So, ask the student you pull aside what he or she honestly thinks of the campus. Remember to ask questions in all areas from night life to acedemics because four years id a long time.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

the most frustrating thing about the University of New Haven is all the construction that goes on here. Granted it will be great one day, but it's just really annoying now.

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

It's great that campus is so diverse and everyone is open and friendly. Downtown New Haven is only 5 minutes away so that definitely attracts more than half the school. Greek life, even though it's small, is popular on campus and everyone hangs out and has fun. UNH also does a lot to help out the community which is aweomse that so many people gets involved.

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

Definitely look at all the possibilities. Don't just look in one region or one state, look all over. You may miss out by not looking all over.

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

For the price we all pay, we definitely don't get as much as we should. Staff and faculty are not as helpful as we were told. When we came on tours as high schoolers, the school makes everything seem a lot better than it is.

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

If I were to offer my advice to my parents on selecting the appropriate college I would say choose a college that best suits your personality and needs. Find several colleges that offer the program for your field of study and decide which one would you be most comfortable with attending. The campus life has a substantial effect on study habits and learning processes. That is to say, a busy campus could distract disciplined students whereas a quieter campus would allow a student to perform at their best because they have complete focus. After narrowing the choices down to 2 or 3 colleges, the next step is to visit those colleges in person to get a feel for what it is like to be on campus. Tour the buildings, spectate the classes in session, and most of all determine whether or not the college connects with your personality. When choosing the right college to make the most of your college experience the most important factor is finding a college that makes you feel at home while offering highly beneficial courses.

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

The worst thing about my school is the uncertainty of receiving a well paying job/carrer after graduation.

My advice is to find a school that holds all your interests so that you can explore them all to find your true calling.

The only one thing I could say that is distinctly different about the University of New Haven is its emphasis on its Bachelor's forensic program.

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

To students: Do not look for unimportant criteria when considering school options (i.e. Male to female ratio, reputation of party school status, etc.) Also, when looking at school, consider first and foremost what majors/minors. other programs that are being offered. Consider distance from home to school ( in my opinion, looking for a school more than 2 hours from home is impratical). And last but not least: Get familiar with the school library fast; know where resources can be found. To parents: Financial planning is the most important detail to pay attention to (needless to say). Other than that, support can go a very long way in helping students be motivated in going to school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who smokes MaryJane or decides that it is alright to become intoxicated and threaten the campus dormitory resident advisor (I've had two roommates in my first year removed for both). Campus police is adamant about school rules. Also, someone who is looking for a "party school" should not attend this school. The school is slow on the weekends. Thirdly, someone who has little work ethic should obviously not attend this school (or any other school for that matter).

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

I would suggest that you start early. Start looking and searching while you are in 11th grade it's never to early. Don't settle for a college that your not to sure about. Do lots of research on everthing about each college. Most mportant, never ever get discouraged.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone could attend this school. Like with any school, you make out of it what you put into it. Remember, it's your life and your future.
