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

First off i would want everyone to know that it is important to study hard and do well in highschool. Not only does it determine if you get into a good college or not, but it also helps you build good study habbits which help you once you get there. As for advice about making the most of the college experience, i'd say you should live on campus. There are so many things you miss out on living at home or off campus, so much interaction goes on in the on campus appartments. You really do make friends for life while you're in school and i think if you dont live on campus you miss out on meeting a ton of very interesting people. I love my school, but i love my appartment just as much. I know when i go home i miss it, so i'd say if you can you should live on campus. Also you should study hard, but dont forget to have fun.

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

I dont know. I wish i would have studied a bit harder while i was here...and it would have been nice to have decided my major sooner.

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

I would tell other students to try and have a good idea what career they would like to pursue after high school. If you don't have any idea, take a placement test to see where your strengths are. Then if you can decide what area you want to study, research colleges you can afford to attend that best fits your area of study. If you are offered a scholarship at more than one college, pick the one fits your area of study and lifestyle. If you don't like cold weather, then attend school in a warmer climate. Don't waste your time at college, have fun but study hard to be the best at what you want to do for the rest of you life.

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

I don't know. I live in this area and knew about the school already

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

Parking. Not enough spaces to park so long walks to classes

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

Finding the right college for a new student takes a lot of things in to consideration. The academic goals of the student are a large part of the decision; the school must have the program that the student is interested in. A second, equally important aspect is the student's personality. If a person likes to have intereaction in classes, a smaller college might work best for this type of student. If a person is content with listening to a straight lecture, with little time for questions during class, a larger campus might suit this type of student. The financial situation of the student might help determine the schools that work better. If a student will need to work during school, opportunities for on- and off-campus jobs might be important. Making the most of the college experience requires to open up to new things. Taking classes that don't seem to be directly connected with the program one is taking can let a student find new interests and maybe hobbies. The student's social life also helps make the most of the college experience. College friends can be very important life long friends.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any type of person should attend this school. A person interested in a large variety of things would be able to find a major to suit their interests.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There is no person that should not attend this school.I believe that there are classes and majors available for any type of person. The only type of person that might not enjoy this school is someone who loves constant hustle and bustle. This school is growing, but it is not yet a large, busy campus.

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

It is very important to take into consideration several factors before choosing a college. First of all, a student's personality must match the school they go to in order for it to be a comfortable new home and learning environment. For instance, a quiet, shy, introverted person may want to stay closer to home or friends and may want a smaller college atmosphere or at least smaller classes. Secondly, finances are very important. A student should apply to their top choices but keep money in mind in this day and age. A student should do all that is possible to apply for scholarships and probably should pick a college that thinks enough of him or her to offer a scholarship for him or her to go there. That will help with the financial situation, which eases stress, and will boost the student's confidence in him or herself as he or she begins with classes. Thirdly, a student should not just quickly make up his or her mind about a college based solely on location, reputation, or popularity with their high school peers but instead take the time to research other aspects of the college.

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

It was not well-known or highly competitive academically.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone on a budget, someone who wants smaller classes, or someone who wants to have better access to and relationships with their professors.

My advice would be to really understand yourself or in the case of parents really be honest about who your child is and what she is capable of then research,research,research. I have seen far too many people struggle and fail because of trying to be what their parents expected. I would also recommend living on campus and make a point to get involved it your college experience after all.

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

I would encourage students to research prospective colleges/universities. I would encourage exploration of the fields of study offered by each institution, along with exploration of potential career fields. It is very important to select a field of study that you will enjoy. As a high school student, it is very difficult to choose a major without having experience in any real job settings. My advice would be to participate in as many job shadowing opportunities as possible and weigh the pros and cons of each potential profession. This will help you to determine your likes and dislikes about different professions. Once you have determined which career path is best for you, then select a college/university that offers that field of study. As four year universities can be expensive, I would recommend taking pre-requisite courses at a junior college, then transferring to a university. As for making the most of the college experience, I suggest you take this time to explore what life has to offer and what you truly want out of your life and future career. Keep an open mind and discover what is available to you.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I'd say our school is best known for the low cost education it offers.

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

I would advise any student attempting to find the right college for them to consider the following things: distance of the school from home, quality of your education for the price, location of the campus, quality of the school's programs you are interested in studying, and number of students that typically live on campus. Incoming students may think they want to be as far from home as physically possible, which is all well and good, but it's important to be sure that the location of the campus is in a place where the transition from home to college is made as easy as possible. For some people this may mean a campus located near a bustling city with a lot to do, for others it may be a quieter, smaller campus with a more homey feel. Also, it's very important that the school you are considering has a strong program in the area you wish to major. Be sure to ask about the job placement rates for students graduation from the school with degrees in the major you wish to pursue. Finally, just try to get involved at your school and have fun!

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

Don't pressure kids to go to a Big 10 school, the college you went to or an Ivy League School. They are seniors in high school and it's time to start treating them like adults. I know that in your eyes they will always be your little 10year old boy/girl but its time to give them freedom. Not only the freedom to choose what school they want to go to,but freedom to be who they want to be. Give your children the freedom to make their own mistakes and learn from them. When your children do make mistakes, be there to support them. Don't lecture or criticize. Just love them and support them all the same. Let them know that it's not the end of the world and that everything will be okay. That is my advice to parents. My advice to students is much simpler. Live life. Live and love living life to the fullest. Don't be scared to try something new and take a risk. Life is an adventure and college is the perfect time to enjoy that adventure. Live and Love with all of your heart.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A free thinking person who loves to live life to the fullest.
