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

it is a great small private school, that really offers many experiences and very diverse programs of things to do, and learn from. All of the faculty and staff as well as the students are very friendly and give back to the community as much as they can. The curriculum is challenging yet can be managed with many extracuricular activities like for example myself. im a double major involved in two organizations and hold many chairs within them and still have time to work, have a social life as well as give back to my community.

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

Make sure to visit the campus, and get to know a little bit more about what goes on from students, faculty and staff. If you talk to them , their attitudes and responses will be the things most important to find out about a school, without that its hard to know what school will be the most suitable for your children. Even though you dont have to attend the school, you want to make sure that you would like to go back time and time again to visit your children that is the determining factor of it all. How comfortable they are with attending and how happy you are with their happiness.

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

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

The student should be honest with themselves about what they want, not just the best looking school on paper, but the best school for you, including the atmosphere, the location and the courses provided. Visit the campus's and leave your options open then make decisions from what you saw and apply from there choosing your top choices, a reach school a most likely to get into school, and an easy in school, all of which that you would love to attend.

What's unique about your campus?

The staff/atmosphere of the school, when touring and once attending the staff makes you feel wanted and important to them, much more than other schools who made me feel much more like just another paycheck from tuition. Redlands makes you feel important to them and that they will really listen to you and actually follow through with their promises.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who likes a laid back yet education oriented community, which is small enough to feel like a close knit community yet large enough to always meet someone new.

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

U of R is too small, and I do not feel like I am receiving the education I should be with all the money I'm paying to attend.

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

I would say make sure that your son or daughter likes the surrounding area and discuss with them whether they would rather go to a big or small school, and write down pros and cons of each. I would also tell them to visit as many campuses as they can that their child is interested in, that way their son or daughter gets a better feel for the college and its surroundings. To make the most out of their son or daughter's college experience I would say to them make sure to tell them to do their work and hand it in on time, that way they won't get stressed out and behind in their academics. I would also say, make sure to have fun, be active in school affairs, and get out and explore the place they are living in for the next four years becuase you will never get those years back.

What's unique about your campus?

The bets thing I would say is the class size is quite small, so speaking directly with the professor is easy. Also, I like how it is located near the mountains, so my friends and I can go hiking, camping, etc.

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

If you are trying to find the right college for yourself or your child, I recommend a visit, and even an over night stay if possible. Pay attention to what the tour guides say about campus life, and student accessibility. Look at the campus, do you want a big campus or a small one? Student population is also a big key. A great way to make the most of your college experience, is to set a goal that is seemingly impossible during orientation, or at the start of your first year. Start off strong and continuously try to reach that goal and by the end of the first semester see how well you did. If at all possible continue this until the end of your first year, how'd you do? Typically you'll remember doing MANY things and realize that you had a GREAT first year. Oh yeah, and be sure to bring a camera, there are things you'll want to remember for the rest of your life, and your first year in college is quite possibly the most important.

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

Sometimes it's difficult to activate students that aren't involved and get them to take the reigns. I think this is because many students may feel that it's not their place, although many of our students were VERY involved in their high schools prior to coming here.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who isn't open to new ideas, or learning something new everyday shouldn't come here. People at this school tend to be a little more liberal or at least accepting, and if that's not an environment that you can get used to you shouldn't come to this University.

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

To find the right college it's important to make a short list of 'must haves' to narrow down the selection of schools by size, academics, or clubs/activities. After that, visit as many of them as possible, as well as try to talk to current students. Thirdly, during your visit sit in on a class to see what sort of interactions there are between professors and students. For me when I was looking, it was visiting the campuses that really helped me figure out which schools I felt I would be happy attending. There can be a school that, on paper, looks as if it's the perfect place for you, but when you go to visit it, you might find that it's completely wrong. Also, talking to or spending time with current students will give you a good idea of how people who know the school well feel about it and what sorts of people choose to attend that college. Getting involved is the best way to make the most of your college experience. Let yourself experience new things, and keep an open mind. Involve yourself in campus life and make friends. Participate in college life.

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

I find the worst thing about Redlands the division between the Johnston Center and the College of Arts and Sciences. I find that there is a lot of misunderstanding on both sides and that it creates a division. With that said, I DON'T find that it gets in the way of me having CAS friends while in Johnston or CAS people having friends with Johnston students. I just find it more as a theoretical, abstract division based on the idea of Johnston and the idea of CAS while on a person to person basis, the divide is non-existant.

Try to have the overnight experience. You never know how you'll like the school until you experience it as a student. Send the parents away and spend the night on campus, attend some classes, meet some people.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for their small class sizes and the liberal Johnston program on your campus. Johnston allows for students to contract their own majors, basically they can create their own program. Our campus is also well known for its beautiful location.

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

Small class sizes all the way around, located at the Base of Big Bear allows for a spectacular view. It is also just about an hour away from, skiing, hiking, beaches and the desert and only three hours from Las Vegas. It also had an environemntal studies department, which is a fairly new program nation wide.

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

There are so many choices today for students who are pursuing a higher education. At the end of your junior year you should start researching colleges both private and public and only search for schools in the areas you want to live. Students' surroundings plan an important role in how well they adjust to an institution because it affects their comfort levels. Once a student has selected institution that they are interested in there are a few things that the student can do to make their decision earlier. Students need to try to contact current students at the institutions to get a better under standing of what campus life is like. The student should also take a guided tour of the campus and meet with a professor. The most important thing to remember is that there are two things that make a great college experience. The two things needed for a great experience is a strong academic program and a friendly campus environment, so please do your research.

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

To make the most out of the college experience, I would first suggest appyling to many schools to allow a variety of options. Although making the right choice may be difficult, a certain feeling will arise and you will know which school is best for you. If you feel you didn't choose the right school, you can always transfer. Once you pick your school, get involved on campus, whether it is a sport or a club. You will meet new people and likely develop friendships. Work with your professors so you stay on track academically. If you want to change as a person, college is the best time because it is likely that people will not know you. don't be afraid of change. For parents, allow your child to adjust to college life without the comforts of home. Support them in every way possible. Finally, college is the best time of anybody's life, so it enoy while you can.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the accesibility of the faculty and/or professors. They are always available to talk about whatever you want. I feel safe talking with my professors about personal issues. They are also experienced and have extensive knowledge which is great when they give advice and suggestions.

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

Since I play soccer here at the university, I tend to brag about that. Playing a sport at the collegiate level is a big deal to some people. I am proud to be part of a team, especially a winning team.
