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

As corny as it sounds, you'll just know when you find the right college. As for me, I went to my college my first visit thinking I was going to hate it, and instead fell in love with it. I really suggest you go to a couple and go to some that you may think you have no interest in. You may be surprised what some have to offer other then what their stereotype makes them out to be. College is about discovering who you are as a person, not who you thought you were in high school, or what you think your parents what you to be. Find the place that will make you happy, because you're going to be spending the next four years there. Make sure you love your college and they will be the best four years of your life.

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

I don't think anyone ever told me that picking a college is more of a crap shoot than anything else. In my mind the goal is to find a place that after close examination would minimize your unhappiness, not find the ONE place that is the PERFECT place in EVERY way. People put so much pressure on finding the perfect place, people should just know there might not be a perfect place.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing would be the professors and their undeniable dedication to their subjects and fields of study.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The classes have such a mixed level of abilities, the professors tend to teach to the lowest common denomenator and is frustrating for those most focused. As well, tuition is so expensive even for someone who works full time and goes to school full time.

Describe the students at your school.

Most or almost all of my classmates tend to be stressed out schooloholics, who live their lives through and within a deep blinding fog of fear. The pressure they enforce upon themselves is a grey hair inducer or even balder due to common hair pulling rages. All of who go into a clear tunnel of distress and single mindedness when in the classroom and are unable to deviate from the created box or norm creating new abstract contradicting ideas. I am one who tends to think outside the box and currently have no one to do so with.

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

This transition is not one to take lightly and is also not one to loose sleep over. Advice I would give to parents is to be very involved in the process but do not, by any means, try and cram certain schools down your son or daughters throat. Coming from a student who had little to practically no help, this process is more that capable of sending one to the psych ward. You should discuss financial implications of schools along with what majors or subject your student loves or enjoys. Do your best at trying to get the real answer from your child and not just what you think your child wants you to hear. So, in other words if your child tells you they want to study exactly what you want them to, you might want to investigate further upon your results. Ultimately what school you want to go to depends upon a.) What you one get into b.) How much money one can afford to dish out and c.) What concentration of major your student wants to embark upon. Make sure they are doing what they love making themselves happy not you. Trust my words through experience.

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

The worst thing is probably the social clicks. I feel as though I have only changed high schools and live away from home. The clicks are very noticeable and are exclusive. Apparently, this tends to be a reoccurring theme in many of the small private schools in Minnesota according to students from surrounding private universities, with whom I have had the pleasure of talking to. I think this is due to the amount of money that student?s parents have, assuming they are attending this college because their parents can afford it, unlike the current author of the statement.

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

I would tell parents and students to go and experience the college on your own and attend a class. Look around during a typical weekday and see if you can picture yourself as the students you see around you. Eat at the dining halls, read in the library, play frisbee outside. Do what a normal college student would do and ask yourself if you feel comfortable doing those things there. Also, find out everything there is to know about each college you're applying for. Make sure you have some sort of checklist of everything you want in a college and each college matches that as much as possible. As for making the most out of your college experience, step out of your comfort zone! You are not in high school anymore. Your friends are not wherever you are. You have to go out and do things on your own. If you do that, you will learn who you truly are and be more comfortable making decisions about your future. Just be confident and make sure what you get involved with is a good portrayal of you, because college is where people set the foundation for who they will be.

What's unique about your campus?

There are many great things about my school. The professors seem to love their jobs and I learn a lot every day. The resources for students here are insanely great and definitely what makes this school stand out from the rest. Also, the campus is beautiful and there is always something going on.

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

Bottom line, do what makes you happy. Don't choose a school because you want to appear impressive to your friends or because your parents went there, choose a school becaues you think you'll like it. A college should challenge your thoughts and beliefs and allow you to challenge there's. It should be indusive to free-thinking and a place where you can discover yourself. Look for somewhere that's in the midst of a lot to do - that will allow you to get out of your comfort zone and experience. By all means, choose somewhere that is in your financial means. You can get a great education at a lot of instiutions, but it's all about what you do with your degree. With the current state of the economy, this will be more important in coming years.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the campus in general. The buildings are goregous and provide an environment where you feel proud to attend class each day. I also think the opportunities made available by the university for work during and after school.

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

I tell them about all of the awesome opportunities we have that will boost chances for future employment. We have tons of networking events, on-campus interviewing, and chances to get involved in pre-professional groups. I tell them about all of the amazing speakers I've seen and how much I've been able to accomplish through my work in on-campus organizations. I also tell them about how beautiful it is. Our campus looks amazing.

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

The one crucial part of selecting a college is how you feel about it when you visit. A college may look great in the brochure or get the best reviews, but if a student cannot picture themselves going there when they step onto the campus, then it is not the right school for them. One other crucial part to finding the right college is to look at what kind of resources a school offers. You need to make sure that they have the resources available to help you succeed there. The two very important things when it comes to making the most of your college experience: get involved and be active in the college community and take advantage of the resources the school offers. Getting involved will help you make friends and find your likes and dislikes while the resources presented to you are meant to help you succeed and get ahead in life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who are very liberal or against religion in general

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

The college's religious beliefs are part of every activity.

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

Advice that I would give to students is that they should do everything possible to be involved on campus. Make the most of college by getting to know new people and making sure that you experience everything you can. Travel abroad, take a course you wouldn't normally take, do everything in your power to get out out of your comfort level and make the most of it. As for parents I would suggest that you let your child learn from the experiences at school. Encourage them to travel and participate as much as possible at school. Let them grow and just be there when they need you.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is how expensive it is. Don't get me wrong you totally get your money's worth but sometimes I feel like its a bit much.

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

Make sure that the reason that one is coming here is to get a good education. There is a lot of other things to do on campus and one can get sidetracked and not get much needed homework done. The neighborhood around campus is mainly residential and smaller businesses, but there is a lot of things for students to do in the neighboring area.

What kind of person should attend this school?

One who desires to get a quality education and isn't afraid of working for it.

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

Go on tours and try to find a school that is geared toward your area of interest/what you think you want to major in. Don't worry about where your highschool friends are going or where everyone else in highschool goes. Just get excited about college because no matter where you go you can have the time of your life.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about this school is the people and the professors. You will find people here who are just like you and are amazing! The professors really make the college experience though. They are completely dedicated to the students and are invaluable in helping find jobs/interships/advice/networking etc. St. Thomas is great becuase people are passionate, ambitious and ready to be successful.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are looking for a liberal-hippie-artsy school St. Thomas is not for you, go down the street to Macalaster. If you are looking for a school where you can go wil its not for you either.
