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

My school is small. Everyone is friendly. The teachers and advisors know the students and do everything they can to help. Classes are small for the most part and that is very good.

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

Let your child pick their own college. Visit many colleges and do your research. Apply for all of the college based scholarships available. GO TO CLASS and have an open relationship with your teachers/professors. Try ne things and go to all the campus functions, you never know who you may meet.

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

I would advise students and parents to go to several universities and pay attention to the campus and what goes on during a normal day and night. They should look at more than what happens on a football weekend. Parents and students should begin saving money for college very early. Talk to current students at the college of choice as well as professors and advisors. It is very important to get a feel for what people think about their school of choice.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing to me is all of the fun things to do outside of class to get involved in the happenings at USM. I love the intramural activities to exercise and to get to know other people.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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

WHEN CHOOSING A COLLEGE, I WOULD CONSIDER SOMETHING CLOSE TO HOME FOR YOUR FIRST YEAR. IT WILL HELP WITH FINANCES AND THE POSSIBLE CASE OF HOMESICKNESS, EITHER IT BE YOU OR YOUR PARENTS. ALSO CONSIDER A SCHOOL THAT OFFERS THINGS THAT INTEREST YOU.

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

The worst thing about my school is the food. You don't get what you pay for but it is not just here it is at most other schools as well. The food places on campus do not stay open late enough for an average college student. Most campus food places that are affordable close at 8pm and then you are left hungry until the morning and the only place open to eat on the weekend is the cafeteria. It is a great school but beware the food!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the housing. USM has two off campus dorms that are placed across the street of the school on both sides of the campus. It is very hectic trying to cross the street everyday on a very busy street. Most of the dorms but one are very old and need repairs. I would suggest getting an apartment if afforable after your first year on campus. The freshmen dorms are decent!

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

The most unique thing about my school is that is different. The reason is beacuse it is shown by different people from different places. That is what I like about this school. It shows you that you can go fat in life and have the oppurtunity to do what ever you want to accomplish in life. Not only the school helpful and understanding, but the surrounding area over all is just so much fun and exciting. There is always something to do with friends and family.

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

The most thing I find myself bragging about is the surrounding area and having so much to do when school is not in. In most cases there are schools where they are so far out and can never find anything to do. I love this school becasue of this.

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

The advice I would give to parents and students about finding the right college is know the school. There are a few things one should know about a school such safety, location, finances, interests, environment, cultural attributions, academic rank, and specific professors. Also, life your life to the fullest because you only get one chance to enjoy yourself.

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

I knew everything I need to know before I came to USM.

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

Location! Location! Location! Location is so crucial to your overal happiness and experience. Location determines what sort of lifestyle you lead when not in class. Although class is the reason you're going to college, you learn just as much if not more about yourself and life outside of the classroom. Decide what types of things are important to you in a city. Regardless of what school you choose to attend for academic reasons, if you fail to put yourself somewhere that you're going to be happy then you've really missed out on the college experience. On that note, getting the most out of your college experience is easy. Take as many classes as you can without overworking yourself, and GO TO CLASS! Half of the work is just going to class. Electives are great things! It gives you the opportunity to learn something of you're choice. Don't go home every weekend! Spend time with friends and live a healthy social life...this is the only way to come into your own. Find things that you're passionate about, and get involved in those things. Work, Learn, and Have Fun! Welcome to College!

What's unique about your campus?

The town that is rests in. Hattiesburg is a great college town that is just the right size and within an hour and half drive of three large cities to get away to on the weekend. The weather is always warm and nice!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is artistic and open-minded.

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

Do some research. Try to schedule college days during junior and senior year so that your child can get a feel of what the college has to offer before he or she decides on which college to choose.
