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

I would definitely look into the academic programs that the schools offer as well as visit the schools beforehand to see what their facilities are like. I would also interview students who go to that school and get their personal viewpoints. Also check to see if that school provides financial aid to students who are below a certain income level.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the small classroom sizes and the fact that the professor knows each individual person in that classroom. We are able to have more productive and open classroom discussions and the professors strongly encourages students to express their viewpoints in class. They are also available to students for extra help and advice outside of class. They definitely respond to their emails in a timely manner. They are also willing to help the students do well in the class and are flexible of students handing in their work late.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is that not all dorms have the same facilities despite the fact that we all pay the same room and board fee. Some dorms do not have air conditioning whereas other dorms do. Also some dorms are more run down and old whereas other dormitories have been renovated and are brand new. There are dormitories that are very close to the lecture halls and cafeteria and library whereas other dormitories are faraway. The university has been rather slow in renovating and maintaining the old dorms also building more dorms to maintain the population.

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

When I stepped foot onto the campus, I knew it was my new home. My simple advice is to go to each campus you are considering and see how you feel there. Stay and make appointments to meet with advisors and students to get the feel of the school. It is truly your home away from home.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Every kind of person should attend this school. There are so many opportunities to thrive and excel at this university. We are a very diverse campus and take pride in that as well as our academics.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Honestly? Waking up for an 8 AM class. For everything else there is more than enough help from professors, faculty and staff, as well as tutoring on campus.

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

Visit the school during the academic year and make sure to sit in on classes. In order to properly gague the fit of the school you must be willing to put forth the effort both in online research as well as in-person visits.

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

There is little trust between professors and students- we are not often treated as adults but rather as children who need coddling.

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

I would tell them to explore a school's options for prospective students visiting the campus, such as overnight stays and sitting in on classes, so they can see if they like the school more. I would also tell them to find schools with class sizes that are smaller, which usually means a private shcool, but it really is beneficial and although I have never had a class size larger than 30 students at my university, everything I have heard about large class sizes is negative. Another thing to pay attention to is the number of majors offered. If you don't know what you want to do for sure, pick a school that has a variety you might be able to choose from as opposed to a school with only three majors (yes it's out there) so that you won't be stuck down the road. Also, don't count out universities where the major you are interested in is small because that does NOT mean it is not as good.

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

I tell them how beautiful my campus is and how much I love the small class sizes.

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

Visit the college. If you can, stay over night. Just because it's a prestigious school, doesn't mean it's the best for you. Sometimes smaller is better. Get out and get involved. The more involved you are, the more friends you'll make. Make your own decisions; you don't necessarily have to listen to everything your new-found friends say. Most importantly, be yourself!

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

College in general is very very different from highschool. Keep your head on straight and don't get carried away by your new found freedom.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who wants a small town and small school experience. The biggest class size I've heard of was 30 or less. There's a huge variety of classes so someone who doesn't know what they want to do, has the perfect opportunity to take whatever they want.

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

The small campus provides a strong sense of community. Redlands prepares students for the real world by providing a diverse range of academia. The school has a huge alumni network that helps students grow in and outside the Redlands community. The professors and staff are extremely friendly and care deeply for the students at the school.

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

There is a lot to consider when a family goes college shopping. It is strongly encouraged for for families to visit schools before committing. There is a huge difference between a small residential college and a big research university. It is very important to weigh in all options when deciding upon a college: tuition, financial aid, distance from home, average temperatures, on and off campus activities, athletics, etc... College is a chapter that really represents four amazing years so choosing the perfect school is crucial for personal enjoyment and happiness.

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

The school needs to build its communal standards to the weekends. Often referred to as the University of Deadlands on the weekends, the campus grows amazingly quiet on Friday night and Saturdays as students often venture elsewhere to find things to keep occupied.

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

As a tour guide and admissions worker for my school, I meet a lot of parents and students who are all trying to find the college which fits them best. It can really be a daunting task, one made harder by the constant pandering from all the different schools--it's hard to know whether you're getting a straight answer or not. My advice to students is to not worry so much about finding a school with a particular major--you want to find a place that will let you explore many different avenues of study without putting you behind on graduation. I say this because so many students change their major anyway, but at larger schools with highly specialized programs its much harder to switch; you're so busy jumping through their hoops that you don't have enough time to explore your own interests. College is about finding something which will hold your interest for the rest of your life, something to be passionate about. You want to find a school which is about helping students find their passions, not just pushing you through the program successfully.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those who want a large or very active and diverse campus. Also, those looking for a place where there's always something going on.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

location--the city is small, so there's not much to do in the immediate area

They are extremely friendly and helpful. Also, all the classes are based off of your learning. There are group activities but it does not account for the whole class or your whole grade because that can be unfair.

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

Don't pick a school that is know for its partying because it should not cost that much money to party. But you should be getting a good education for the money you are spending. Also, go with a school with a good reputation and that is not know for just giving degrees away.

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

I believe that going to college will be the most valuable experience of your life. Truthfully, it does not matter which college you select; rather, it is all about how you experience the college, how you utilize what it has to offer, and what you take away from it. Frankly, I would advise going to a college that has direct job placement if you are eager to get a job right away after you graduate. If you want to go to graduate school or do not know what to do after graduation, go wherever you will enjoy yourself and be able to grow as a person and a successful student. That is the best, most heart-felt advice I can give after my four years in college, and would hope that this wisdom I impart upon you will give you direction for your selection. Good luck!

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who want small-classroom sizes and direct professor interaction.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who want experts in their fields in cutting-edge research.
