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

As far as finding the right college, I believe it is important to view and research and visit as many schools as possible. If you can't afford to travel across the country to visist a school, then speak with someone who works there or someone who went there. Making yourself familiar with the school and its environment is crucial to picking the best school for you. As far as making the most out of the college experience, it's not about where you are or where you go, but what you do when you get there. Living in the moment, and making wise decisions honestly and earnestly is most definitely the recipe for getting the absolute best college experience.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The University of Saint Thomas is probably best know for it's Business/Entrepreneurship programs. There is a major area of focus on business at this university and most students I have encountered here tend to major in business in some form, or at least minor in some area of business.

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

In my modest opinion, there are several main criteria to alike to take into careful consideration. First off, the parent or student should attempt to get some type of feel for what it is the student wants to pursue upon the completion of college. Also think about whether the future college student works best in small class environments or not, and the overall environment of the school. Find a college that fits the mold. It is important to lay to think about life after of college before diving right into it, otherwise it may be like getting in a car with no destination in mind with inflating gas prices. Next, it would be recommended that the parent or student decide whether it would be best for the student to stay near home, or if it would be permissable for the student to leave the state. From there comes the financial aspect of college. How much financial aid can the student get for attending a particular school? Can the student pay for school and still have money left to enjoy life? How easy is it for that student to find a job around campus? Touring options in person is also key.

To parents and students looking for the right college I would say, make sure you go some place that you know you are going to love. If you don't love the school you are at, you wont have a good time!

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person that should attend this school is someone who is very focused on their school work. St. Thomas is a very good school, but the classes are hard and it takes a lot of work to get a good grade in these classes.

One of the biggest statistics I wish I would've looked at when choosing colleges was the retention rate. Good schools have good retention rates.

It's a lot more religious and conservative. The academics are not that strong. It excels in business and the campus is pretty.

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

It's way too religious. Other religions seem to be inferior at St. Thomas, Catholicism rules the day. People have the mentality that if you're not Catholic and don't like it then you should leave. Students aren't very open or accepting of other views. The academics are also lacking for the most part.

A lot of the students in some of the classes seem rich and stuck up, but I have met enough friends that I can get along with.

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

Take time to go on campus tours. Get a feel for the school before you go there. You will know right away if it is the school for you because you will feel at home. Once you get to college, get active! Friends will be your most valuable asset when you are at college. Pick friends that have to same intrests or acedemic goals as you do. Acedemically, keep your mind on the prize, stay focused, seek help if you need it, and you should love your college experience.

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

That I would receive financial aid but not quite enough to cover my school expenses and now I can't afford school at all. It is also very hard for me to get student loans because of my parents' soci-economic class, St. Thomas has helped a little but I don't feel like they have done everything they possibly can to finance my education.
