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

Take every aspect of the college into consideration. It's not only about the size of the school or classes, but also about the teachers, students, and how closely their programs fit the degree you are going for. For example if you wanted to become a veterinarian but the school isn't geared toward helping you prepare for vet school, it might not be the best choice. If you are unsure of your degree path then make sure the college offers a wide variety of possible degrees that follow your interests. Don't just go with what is familiar either. Look for things that might be different for you so you can open yourself up to new experiences. Just try to take everything that you feel is important into consideration, such as proximity to home/family if you plan to visit a lot, or types of activities you know you want to be a part of, also look for activities that interest you but you've maybe never had the chance to participate in before.

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

When you are looking at a potential school the three things to examine are academic programs, student organizations, and the location. Look for a school with diverse programs, because chances are that the student will change their major. Also, pick a place that the student can imagine living for four or more years. Students often forget to closely examine the social setting of the schools locatoin. Student organizations should be examined as they are good to be a member of. Student organizations look good on a resume and are an excellent way to make friends on campus.

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

I wish I would have known that many people leave on the weekends. There are many student organizations but they are smaller groups.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If a person can't handle going to school in a small town environment then they should not attend this school. Students from a large city often have adjustment problems here.

It was a lot cheaper and they had a good amount of majors.

One of my favorite quotations by Tom Landry (former coach of the Dallas Cowboys) is "today I gave everything I had and what I kept for myself I lost forever." This quotation reminds us that it is truly the things we do outside of ourselves that will make an impact on our world. Yet, when you are choosing a college you are choosing to invest in yourself, and this investment is what will allow you to give back to your world. It is important when choosing a college to choose one that is going to best equip you as an individual to give back to others in the the way that you want. I majored in Communications and minored in Spanish, now I realize that I want to return to graduate school for a degree in International Education Development. Through the process of figuring out how I wanted to give back, I figured out which college and program will be the best fit for me. So take a good look at your life up until now and ask yourself what you want to give, and that will help you figure out what you need to get from your college education.

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

The pricetag the fact that I got out with under 20,000 in debt and I just rented my textbooks as opposed to buying.

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

Advice I would give parents and students is that they should take their time to look at multiple different schools to get a good understanding of what you want in a college. For the students, you are usually starting out new so live out side of your normal box. Take risks with that you do, while being safe at the same time. Have fun and enjoy yourself, these really are the best years of your life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who wants to go to a big school. This is a big enough school where you don't know everyone, but small enough where word gets around fast.

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

In high school, we are nervous about what college to pick and what to major in. We bite our nails over test scores and timidly wait by the mailbox for the letter that decides our fate. This is the traditional student ritual and it's imperative that we hear something new: it's NOT the biggest choice we will make in our lifetimes. Once you arrive on that campus, whether it is your first choice or your eleventh, you will find a place. If that place doesn't suit you, the next four years will not be the hell you pay for. Transfer! Transferring is more common than any high school counselor lets on. We make mistakes, college choices included. It can be fixed within a semester. Once you find your spot on campus, always keep in mind that friends will come. Even with a campus of 300, students manage to find friends. You are never alone--someone else out there feels just like you do. Go find them. Classes will be some of the most difficult encounters you will fight. But there's always help ranging from study groups to tutors. The trick? Apply yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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

When looking for the right fit one needs to know themself. What do you want most out of college? A degree that will allow you to accomplish your goals in life? A place to find a future spouse? Affordability? or maybe you are a religious person and that determines where you are going to attend? Regardless of what your desires are one must look to see what the college they are looking at offers and based on that help them determine what the best fit is. Another aspect to look at is how willing are you to push yourself, to discover how much you really can achieve. College is the time to realize who you are seperate from the family and friends you have had for years. It's a time to open your eyes and heart to the world around you and grasp every opportunity to make you into a more fulfilled person. By choosing to go to college you are already saying you are searching for something you don't have right now. Do not be afraid to take a chance and make your life worth living. Do not waste it, it's the only one you got.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There is little diversity and little to do on weekends. It is a suitcase campus. Not a good sense of community
