Make the most of it the first time around. Going to college is an incredibly wonderful experience that will pay you back 10 fold once it's over. Selecting the right university, the right major, and the right activities in college can and in most cases, will have an impact on the rest of your life, and so it's important to be methodical with your decision. When selecting a school, don't always go to the most well-known school or the most prestigious one. Rather, go to the school that you will not only gain the most from educationally, but also where you will be able to maintain the right level of balance while studying for four+ years. Selecting your major is also tough, and so I would recommend taking classes in many fields that interest you and consulting with your professors and mentors--do not major in something because "it sounds cool!" Finally, college isn't all work all the time--join a few clubs, play some sports, and have fun meeting and interacting with your soon-to-be best friends for life. Careful preparation and prudent decision making will make you have a great four years!

There are all different kinds, but overall they can be snobby and follow the crowd, and also fake and conceided.

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

Find a school which is right for you, as a student and as a person. It is crucial to enjoy what you do, both in the working world and academia. Look for a community in which you feel you belong. You want to select a school which best embodies your desires and beliefs. Most especially, you should enjoy yourself. College is not all about studies. It is important to make sure you still do the things that make you who you are. Never lose those defining characteristics, never quit a group or stop a hobby you love because other people might think it uncool, you would be surprised how many other people there are who share the same interests. Do not fret the little things, we all have a bad week or a bad semester, so long as you can pick yourself up and try again, you will be fine. Lastly, take an active role in your college experience. Participate in programming activities or student government, you will make friends for life.

This school is very small and people can get very close with one another, both students and faculty alike.

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

Think of what is most important to you about what you want out of a school. Some apparently insignificant things (like weather, the local area, quality of the gym and library) can actually end up more important than you realized, even more important than things such as school size, political stance, and dorm quality. Think of the things that will be important on a day-to-day basis, and choose from there.

Obviously this is not high school anymore. Your parents are not around to push you to study, do your work, and attend class. My best advice to you is not let all the freedom go to your head. Its better in the long run to keep up with assignments and don?t let them build up to the point where a million things are all do at once. The syllabus is your lifeline. Professors will not always remind you when things are due. Be concerned about your grades before the fact, not after your already failing. Get to know your professors. Most of them are here because they love teaching and want to see their students succeed. Be sure to check the syllabus for when their hours are and whether you need an appointment. Don?t forget to have fun and stay active. There are so many clubs, sports and intramurals on campus. Join something, it?s a great way to make friends, have fun, and fight of homesickness. Relax, if you have questions, don?t hesitate to ask. Everyone on campus was new one time to, they understand. Have a great year!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who knows how to balance fun and studying well. If you are easily steered off course I dont recommend attending.
