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

My best advice to students trying to pick the best college is to go with your instinct. If you visit colleges and you get a feeling that its where you belong, then that is probably where you are going to be happiest. Don't be afraid to do what you want to do instead of what your friends or parents want you to do. It is your future and your experience, not theirs. To make the most out of your college experience, I would say to get involved. It is the best thing I ever did for myself. You will meet so many interesting people and friends for life just by stepping out of your comfort zone and joining some clubs or groups. Also, remember that school is very important, but it isn't your entire experience. Make sure to have fun while keeping your grades up, and just make the most out of your college career.

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

Sometimes the school doesn't treat us like adults. If you have a problem, they won't respond unless your parents start to call, which I see as a problem. On the upside, this is my third year here, and this problem does seem to be getting better. They are much more responsive to me this year than they were my freshman year.

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

Parents, students, and guidance counselors should diligently research prospective colleges and academic majors together in order to construct a well-informed career path. Once the student is accepted and registered for classes, he or she needs to study the assigned material, go to class, ask questions, and participate in class lectures in order to pass the academic standards of any area of study. Finally, students should be encouraged to develop a balanced sense of wellbeing by getting enough rest, eating healthy, exercising, and participating in extracurricular activities to increase social participation. I believe the aforementioned advice can aid future and current college students in the process of achieving higher learning.

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

Prior to admittance at USI, I should have completed additional research regarding the major I initially declared in order to expedite my collegiate career. I think further research would have stimulated my exploration of other interests and academic major's offered at USI two years sooner.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any individual that is not serious about his or her academic or professional career should not attend the University of Southern Indiana (USI). For example, the young students that choose to attend schools based on the amount of parties, drugs, alchol, or members of the opposite sex present are not likely to succeed USI. Likewise, any individual that could not demonstrate mutual respect toward members of other cultures, religions, race, or nationalities should not attend USI.

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

I would say to let the kids go with their first instincts but to not let them or you base their decision simply on high school friends. High school friends are great and some will even last the rest of your life, but college is an opportunity to meet new friends and have connections later in life. Parents must encourage their kids to simply pursue their dreams and do whatever makes themselves happy, regardless of money or other's opinions.

What kind of person should attend this school?

An outgoing person who is moderately dedicated to their education and is ready to perform inside the class while having a blast outside of class. Race, religion, and sex regardless, USI is not a school to judge you except on character.

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

Make sure you take a tour of the campus, do your research before you even consider the college. This is a huge experience and you want it to be a pleasant one.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking situation for the school isn't accessible to all, we pay parking fees but usually walk a ways to class.

Describe the students at your school.

All my classmates have been nice and welcoming. Everybody is nice to everyone and talks to whoever near them. We are all there for one reason and that is to learn something new towards our college experience.

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

Always tour the college before you decide the right one for you. Participate in as many activities that you can with the college and attend any type of welcome week they might have for incoming freshman. I suggest that any freshman should live in the dorms there first year. You will meet so many more people than living off campus. It will help you adjust to college life and you won't feel as lonely and be more likely to have closer and more friends.

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

The only thing i consider the worse is since the classes are so small, its harder to get the class you want without out it closing and having no spots left to enroll in that class.

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

For someone trying to choose a school, actually visiting the campus and looking into everything (i.e. housing, clubs, security) is very helpful. Different campuses have different atmospheres and it is important to find the right one for you. Talk to the students and professors and see what they like most about their school. How close to home you would like to be can play a factor in your choice, too.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that would regularly skip class and is just there for social reasons would not do well there.

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

To students: If you want to find the right college sometimes it is the college right down the road. If you are into certain sports, hobbies, activities make sure the college has it. Sometimes you get what you pay for and sometimes you have to get involved to get what you pay.

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

I would especially tell parents and students to make sure that they visit several colleges before accepting admission to an university. Because campus visits give students and parents the opportunity to see how the campus operates and a chance to view where the students will be living.

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

That there were not very many organizations for students to participate in.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person who should attend this school, would be someone who wants a small campus with a lot of help from their professors if needed. If a students wants a school that their are small class sizes and a strong sense of community, this is the campus for you.

University of Southern Indiana is a growing school with in a growing community, that is very welcoming and at times can be very exciting!

Describe the students at your school.

At USI classmates are extremely friendly and willing to help.

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

The best advice I could give to someone seeking a higher education would be this; carefully consider what it is you want to do. If you dont know, think about what you like and start there. It is not important to know exactly what degree your seeking when you first enter college, it is only important to first get there and along the way you will decide exactly what it is that you do best and that most interest you. Like I said firts JUST GET THERE, having an education is one of the best things you could possibly obtain, so get in there, and get educated. Secondly, location. I moved five hours away from home which at the time (at 18) seemed GREAT, but its always nice to remember the closer your family is, the more readily available they are to help! College is a great expierence, GET INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING and make the most of it!
