Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Get involved in what interests and become a part of the campus instead of just being a student here. College is a mixture of experiences including your academics so embrace it.

It had a variety of people and interest groups. We have a awarding mass media department and theatre department to a National Champion football team. Whatever your interest are you can excel here.

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

Don't be afraid of going to college and making new friends. Get involved with your academics and people in your major, this will help more than you know. Embrace the entire experience that college has to offer. Meeting new people and experiencing new things help shape and mold you as a person. Other people (friends, professors, mentors and everything in between) have different backgrounds and life experiences that can change the way you see life for the better, learn from them. Academics come first but it can be exciting and the library is not that bad. Keep focused and talk to your professors they really can help you and they are willing to help you if you put forth and effort.

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

If i could go back in time, i would make the decision to attend a four year university and of went. At first i started at a 2 year school which was not for me. I would focus more on school and less on work which has given me skills for my future but has in the past tainted my educational goals. Theres always time to make the right decision it just takes a big person to admit they are not on the right path.

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

I wished i had came here sooner, there are so many oppurtunities that just need to be taken advantage of.

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

The environment the school has to offer. There is a generous variety of backgroungs that attend VSU. The weather is perfect. And they are always striving to make the school bigger and better to go along with the increasing population.

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

Attend all your classes and plan to attend all classes for the entire semester. Save money, don't spend frivilously on music, games, or alchohol. Keep drinking and parties to the weekend, if you have free time during the week work on final projects. Don't leave papers till the last minute, you be more successfull and less stressed out if you get your assignments done early. The people around you may be trying alot of dangerous activities/substances, don't get pressured into following the crowd, do the right thing to keep yourself healthy. Stay out of trouble, if the police charge you with underage drinking or drug possesion it can seriously ruin your prospects of finding a career. Keep strong ties with home, you may think your parents are busybodies, but it's important to keep them posted as to how you are doing, they can offer good advice, and if your honest they will always help you out of trouble. Don't let anyone, especially a greek (frat. /sorority member), tell you who to be. Find the hardworking dilligent people in your class and make friends with them, or at least ask to study with them.

What's unique about your campus?

The layout of the school and availability of off campus houseing.

The school is very pretty and the campus isn't entirely too big.

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

I would tell myself to make sure you pick the right friends. When making your schedule please go to rate my professor. com and if you dont like a class it's ok to drop it, as long as you do it before the midterm or cut off date.

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

I would visited more schools, and look in to how much they cost. I would not go out of state to school, because the cost is to great, the experience is good, but it can slow you down.

What's unique about your campus?

The school is very helpful, and open to new ideas, the campus is very nice. The cost is better than going out of state.

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

I would say not to worry about what anyone thinks of you and to just concentrate on yourself. You are not going to see these people after high school, and the ones that make fun of you are the ones who are going to be failures. Just do what you do, worry about no one, and you will succeed.

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

How nice the campus is. The class buildings, the dorms, everything is so nice it looks like a million dollar neighborhood.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Nothing. This school is so great and the faculty and staff are always there to answer questions and help students.

They are supportive and fun.

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

Don't worry about what other people think of you because that is not what you are in school for. Concentrate on yourself and being the best you that you can be. The people who make fun of you don't get anywhere in life anyway.
