I wish that would have known about the difficulty of the acedemics . I always anticipated collelge to be hard, I never quite expected the rigorous curriculum . I have definitely been challenged durign my four years as a neuroschience major. However, i know that it has prepared me for my years of graduate school. I feel lthat i have a solid education, that will set me aside from other students.
I actually felt like I was pretty well-prepared to go to college. When I came here on a tour in high school I knew exactly what I was going to get when I enrolled. I guess maybe the one thing is that I wish I knew my major. I came to UC to major in Spanish, but switched Sophomore year to Exercise and Sport Science. That put me a little behind in courses.
I had wished that I had had thought more about other alternatives that I could major in before coming to this school. I was originally a biology/pre med major before entering Ursinus but now I am a business major. I wish that I had not had been so narrow minded about what I originally wanted to major in.
I wish I had known how much of a party school my campus was. It's obviously not mentioned in the brochures and my tour guide was a partyer, so she didn't really mention the party scene. Freshmen orientation, all the upperclassmen were telling us about how crazy the drinking is on the weekends here.
How much the tuition & room and board would increase each year. I ended up graduating much more in debt than I planned on when I agreed to attend Ursinus.
The level of difficulty in the courses, and also the course load and amount of work that is required for classes. Also, the expectations of teachers
That fraternities are a lot of fun and actually help me to become a better student and person.
I wish I knew all the racial discrimination I would encounter at Ursinus.
