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

The campus is gorgeous and everyone is friendly.

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

I would take a tour of the college to see if it is what I want. I would ask the advisors and instructors plenty of questions. If they did not have the major I am interested in I would not choose the school. For example, one school had Human resources Bachelor degree but I wanted Social Work so I did not choose that school.

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

The University of Portland is a liberal arts college that encourages students to grow mentally, spiritually, and physically through teaching, faith, and service, and emphasizes the importance of community and working together to be a positive influence in the world.

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

Before applying, parents and students should visit a variety of colleges to get a feel for what the campuses are like. They should talk to current students and faculty to determine whether or not they like the school?s philosophy and environment. Then they should apply to the colleges they like the best, but not only pick one school. The school that the student liked most may not accept them, so it is good to have some backup schools. I would encourage living on campus, if they can afford it, because it allows for the student to integrate more fully into the campus community. There are a lot of events and pieces of campus life that are more easily experienced if a student lives on campus. Living on campus also allows them easier access to campus resources, like faculty office hours, tutoring help, and study groups. You get out of it what you put in. If students take responsibility for their education, put in the work and effort it takes to do well, they will get a lot out of the classes and homework to help prepare them for future careers. A social life is possible, it just takes prioritizing.

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

The people and faculty are really friendly and it is very easy to get used to the campus size and layout. There is always something to do or get involved in and most of the teachers do a really good job of teaching the materiel. It is easy to make friends and then see them all the time because the campus is smaller.

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

Know which activities you like to do. See if the school offers them. Each student is paying for school not only with their money, but with their time. Even if you have a full ride to a school, if they don't have a program or clubs that you might want to participate in, you might not be wasting your money, but you are definately wasting your time. College is the time to define yourself and have fun in the pursuit. That could mean moving to another state or a new city, trying new activities, or learning about other people and their view points. No great discovery was ever found without curiosity and the nerve to break free from the comfortable. Your potential is no different. You are already curious about your future. Now go, take the steps toward it and find it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who believes that college offers more than just a career path. The motto is "teaching, faith and service." Combined, these aspects create a well-rounded person who can excell in their field by their knowledge and social awareness.
