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!

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.

I would say that the best thing I did was to visit each college that you are most interested in and spend some time on the campus. This will allow you to experience the environment of each college and help you decide where you are most comfortable.

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

It small enought to enjoy the campus but it very large where the importance of a school and extra activities. The school is in the middle of a small metro city so the ability to get anything you need is easy. Like shopping, entertainment, and restaurants.

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

Go to the college check the activities that are available. Even though you think your child should worry more about his classes then extra activites - think you have to have down time. You want your child to be able to have a choices of those activites, safe enviroment while those activties are going on. The ability to get around campus. Some classes will be across campus from your other classes - will he/she be able to get there from where one class is or from their living quarters without hassle.

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

My first semester I was in an apartment and thought that was want I wanted to live. But due to financial reason I moved into the dorm the next semester and I so wish I had done that to begin with. The advantages weighs out the disadvantages.

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

In choosing the best college, there are many factors one should consider. This first is the option of an in state college verses and out of state college. According to one's own ability to detach from strong ties of the past, deteriming how far the individual is willing to be away from their home, friends, and family. Second, one should consider his own interests, and then make sure the college that is chosen reflects those interests. Third, one should do research on the colleges of interest. All colleges have their own personality, and an individual should try to correlate the two.

There really is not much special about USM compared to the other schools I considered attending. I ended up going to USM because it was the most cost effective and the Graphics department is very nice.

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

It is terribly important to visit a campus before attending or even applying for admission especially to see the department your child is interested in. It is also a good idea to speak to a current student it, helps to make an informed choice with your child about what they want in a college. While visiting the campus try and see a dorm so that you and your child can get an idea of what sort of living conditions you'll be facing when the semester comes. Once in college it always helps to get involved in some sort of extracurricular activities, I always tried to participate in my campus art club because it relates to my major and allows me to meet people who share similar interests.

What's unique about your campus?

The department I'm in (graphic communications) is an excellent place to be. My professors are real world professionals that are well known in their industry. They give real world advice and have the knowledge to guide you in your growth as a designer that will benefit you in the working world.
