It's a very close knit community here, everyone is your friend, and you can go to anyone if you need help at all.

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

Take the ACT once more. Pay more attention to what you are interested in, pick a school that has all the qualities you are looking for. Don't discount a school because of cost, take all schools into consideration. Don't worry about the money, the money will take of itself. Start applying sooner, take more college visits. Visit with professors and try to talk some current students that attend the schools that you visit. Visit more than just state school, go to any school that interests you. Don't sell yourself short, you can handle any school in the country. Listen to the advice of your parents when they talk to you about college, they know what they are talking about. Pay attention more in your class the last year of high school, they will help prepare you for your first year of college. Pray about what school to attend, and just follow your heart.

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

The University of Sioux Falls has a Christian-based, friendly, safe, and warm enviornment that focuses on academics and offers a variety of athletics to the average athlete.

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

In High School, I feel I was very well prepared to move onto the next level. I took academics seriously and rarely cheated on any assignments or took the easy classes just to slide by. I took more challenging courses my senior year so I would prepare myself for college. Now that I know what I would like to major in, I would have taken some courses in High School that relate to my major to help me move one step further to obtain my degree. My roomate is a friend from High School and I would have changed that if I could go back in time. I would rather room with someone I do not know so that I could have made more friends instead of acquaintances. Overall, I felt well prepared going into college academically but I would have told myself to open up more and get involved in other clubs besides a varsity sport.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is a private college and consists of a low student population. People who learn better in smaller classrooms would benefit from this school. Most students here are creative, outgoing, energetic, and happy. The campus is small and people know at least half of the campus. Most of the students are involved in athletics but the school also offers intramurals and other clubs for students to participate in. A person with good morals and set goals would fit well here.

All of my classmates are very helpful, and we get together out of class to work on projects and homework, which helps us better understand the material.

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

Get to know yourself before you decide on good frienships freshman year. Know who you want surrounding you and influencing you because it will make your college experience more enjoyable knowing that you have a strong support system at home AND at school.

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

I wish I knew about the buildings a little better before I came to this school. The ones that I use more often are not the ones I though I would be using.

My classmates are friendly, not judgemental, fun to interact and discuss matters with, and intelligent.

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

Don't be afraid to go out and talk to people. All the freshman at the college are new and don't no anybody. You won't look dumb or like a loser if you go up and talk to people and be involved in all the social activities that are possible. Friends make the college transition much easier and they will be your friends for a long time. Also, do homework ahead of time. Class syllabus' are a college student's best friend.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the size of the classes because students are able to interact with each other, know each other by name, discuss thier opinions and hear other peoples, and have one-on-one time with the teachers all while having fun and learning new things.

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

To be open to new things and people. To join in the campus activities while on campus. Make the most out of activities, college life, and classes. Remember that the time is short and will only be lived once.

What's unique about your campus?

The friendly atmosphere--friendly people, and desire to volunteer. Liberal arts.

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

The advice I would give to myself if I could go back in time as a high school senior would be to enjoy college to the fullest. Get involved in anything that interests you on campus such as athletics, intermurals, music, art, etc. There is something for everyone to enjoy on campus. Attend chapel weekly because it helps to bring focus to your life and is a relaxing break from classes. Try to be social and reach out to people. Go to dorm bible studies and attend activities on campus. Smile and say hi to whoever you pass in your dorm or on campus. Be assertive with people and do not let people take advantage of you. Live on campus because you will feel part of the community, and you won't have to worry about traffic, etc. Always work hard and strive to do your best. Most importantly, always keep an eternal perspective on things. College is awesome!

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

If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would advise myself to take a lot of time for personal reflection. I would tell myself this because I see now how many of my classmates seem to be swept up in their newfound freedom and have neglected their studies in search of ways to turn college into an endless party. College is a time to be devoted to your studies, and while friendships and community are wonderful benefits of college, they mustn't interfere with your academic life to the point where it affects it negatively. There must be a balance, and to know where your balance lies is to know your limitations and to know yourself. I would advise myself to be open to new academic possibilities because what seems like THE major for you may soon give way to unforseen interests. Lastly, I would tell myself to be prepared to meet many new people and to encounter many changes in college. I would discourage worriment (for I know I'd worry) and encourage excitement and courage because I can handle it. Most importantly, however, I must meet everything with love.

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

The worst thing about my school is its overemphasis on football. My school is very successful in its division, but I feel it neglects those students' academics and takes funds away from more profitable areas, such as the arts.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for our football team. The University of Sioux Falls has an amazing football team. They are still undefeated for the year and went undeated last year as well. When you talk to someone about where you go to college, they automatically ask you if you know anyone off of the team. Our football team gives us great publicity and gives our school a postive outlook to the people who are looking to come here.

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

I would tell myself to strive to go above and beyond on all of my homework. I need to work hard on achieving all good grades. I need to better listen to the lessons my teachers are teaching, so I will be able to use that advice in my college years. The note taking and essays are important to work hard on as well. The ideas and concepts we learn and write about can be used in college. I need to pay attention and keep papers and notes to be able to use in the future, like college.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

One of the most frustrating things about my school is feeling like I a not have enough time to finish my homework. I feel that I need an extra three hours to be able to fit in all that needs to be done in a day, especially around this time of the year with finals just around the corner. The need to manage your time wisely in college is highly recommended and is the one frustrating aspects of college.

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

The first thing I remember when I visited my college is that there was such a warm and friendly enviornment. I felt like I was already at home. Every person I passed said hi or something encouraging to make me feel more welcome. Compared to the other schools I considered I guess that they didn't live up to the feeling of community that my campus has.

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

College has a lot to offer a person. There are going to be so many things that you are going to have questions about but as long as you are able and wanting to set in motion these questions then you will always have answers. College life is going to seem hard at first but once you get into the swing of the way things work you will feel like a person who is on the fast track to success. The college you have chosen has so many professors that genuinely care about how you are doing and you as a person. If you apply yourself to your studies you will see that many of these professors can be lifelong friends as well as the other friendships that you will form along the way. College is ultimately about discovering who you are. You will try things, fail things, and accomplish things that will form and make you into the person that your future holds. Your college career will be an unforgettable one?be ready to stretch out your comfort zone and see what else is waiting for you in this world!

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

There are so many things that teachers, parents, and loved ones can tell you to be ready for before you take your first class at college or before your first day in a dorm room but I don't think anyone can really prepare you for college except yourself. I don't think I would want to know anything more than I did before I went to college because I got to experience the unknown in my own way. And my college experience is something that will only happen once--I want it to be something I can remember forever.
