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

I would say to parents to not pressure their kids into a certain school just because of money. Ultimately, I'd say that even if the school is more money, to let your kid go to it if he/she will be more happy there. Also, do not procrastinate or get nervous. Both parents and children are nervous at this time, so tempers may rise. Just keep your cool.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who does not want to succeed or is lazy.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

That there are not enough work study jobs yet they promise all of this money.

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

When you are visiting or touring a college, you know it is the right college for you at the moment you step onto campus. You will see a landmark, a building, or perhaps meet a person, any of which irrationally convinces you to make 'this place' your home for the next four, or more, years. The rational decisions to attend 'this college' may come later when you speak with an inspiring and motivational professor or staff member in your field of interest, or when you realize that 'this college' will support you as a pre-professional as well as a human being. There is no 'one way' to make the most of your college experience, because you will look back and realize you have learned so much from the mistakes you have made. Try to get involved in a diversity of campus activites and events, ones that broaden your horizens, make you happy, yet do not take away from your time to study. The true test of a superior education comes after graduation, when you will realize that you would have done everything differently-- meaning that you have grown and matured exponentially at 'this college.'

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

Nothing, because then I would not have learned anything new.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who doesn't believe that academics are paramount should not go to this school.

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

The advice I would give both paretns and students in making the most of thier college expierence is to find a college that best suits your child. You will be there for four years, so when you are visiting schools and you feel it is the right fit for you then that is the right school for you. There is a school for everyone! When you go on college tours ask as many question you want answered becaus ethat also helps a lot. When you choose the school of your dreams make the best of it, because it is what you make of it not what other people say or what you hear.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone can attend this school. If you like a small school, this school will best fit you. If you like small classrooms where your teacher actually knows your name and can help you individually then Scranton is for you. Also if you enjoy school spirit, then Scranton should be your number 1 choice!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I believe that anyone can attend this school. It is what you make of the school.

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

Apply to the schools that interest you most. After you have been accepted, make sure you visit each and every school and choose the one that not only offers you the best education but makes you feel the most at home. Without a feeling of home, which in turn equals a feeling of safety and security, you will not be able to succeed or do well academically.

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

Choosing your college is an important decision, but one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give is not to take it too seriously. Do your research, visit campuses, but don't drive yourself crazy, and especially don't force yourself into a decision because you think you need to pick a school early. Have fun making your choices, because whatever you pick will impact your life greatly. For me, I never even considered going to my college until I first came to visit the campus. I could immediately picture myself there, making mine an easy choice. However, I have no less than four good friends who have changed schools at least once, one who even returned to her original school. So weigh all your options, look for a school that will challenge you, that has a good location and appealing activities for you. But most of all look for a school where you can be happy. College can be the hardest, but most exciting and freeing time of your life. Open yourself up to new experiences and to new people, because in the end, college is really what you make of it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who wants to attend Scranton must be willing to attend class, to pay attention, and to work hard. They should be open to new learning experiences, and they should not fear the religious connection the school has. They should be looking forward to meeting new people, and they should be optimistic about the next four years.

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

I brag about the community we have at our school, the overall friendliness and kindness. I brag about how our school is definitely putting our tuition back into the school, building up the campus with state of the art facilities. I brag about the well-rounded education I'm receiving, and how my school is helping me secure my future.
