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

College is not the same as high school. Don't go in thinking you will not have to study and apply yourself. Thinking like that will only mess up your freshman year and make it hard to receive scholarships and grants. Put your mind to be whatever you want to be.

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

Right now there is alot of construction going on. But once it is through it will only make the campus more beautiful.

One thing that is unique about my school is that people from all over the world come to my school and its cool to just learn about their culture and also to make great friends along the way.

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

If I could go back to my days in high school as a senior I would tell myself that college is way more different than high school. There is alot of hard work, dedication, and noone is there behind you . When you go to college you are considered an adult and you have to learn to take care of yourself. At times being a college student can get rough like missing home, being stressed out about school, and even having a bad roommate , but it teaches you to be stronger and more aware of life and the responcibilities that comes with being on your own. Neverthless you may meet new people and all different people from the walks of life, but always remember to be open minded, stay away from negative environments, drugs, and remember to keep the morals and values that your parents taught you. You can never go wrong when you make the right choices in left that will lead you to accomplish your goals and dreams.

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

The worst thing about my school would be the fact that there is still racial segregation to some extent! I feel like now in this era we should be unified instead of departed. I think this is the worst thing because I'm not use to just hanging out with a certain race of people. I'm to meeting different people, cultures, backgrounds and it doesn't matter where that person come from. I feel like different cultures and races are a beautiful thing and we should be open to learning new things instead of living in the past.

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

When visiting a college you need to make the most out of it by takeing a tour and by staying with someone who goes to that school. try and stay at one of the dorms, thats where the real experience it and let them take you out and show you what students do out side the class room also try and see if you could sit in on a class. When looking for the right college make sure you attend one with majors that intrest you. You dont have to know what you want to major in right away but its good to have options.

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

To find the right school, a student must take into their minds how big they want the school to be, how much school spirit they want to be around, social life, what is around the campus, where they would want to live, the weather around the school, what percent graduates, and how many find jobs out of college.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider all the people the best thing about my school because the different people are what makes Valdosta State University a community. The community surrounding the school is diverse as well. All of the different people make it more exciting to be on campus so that you can learn more about each culture. All of the people also show their school spirit very well and that is also very exciting to see.

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

The way that they refund money. If a student needs a refund it isn't as easy to get as paying money for the school.

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

Work as hard as you can to get your GPA as high as possible during your first year, so if you happen to not do well in a later class it won't be as hard to bring your GPA back up. Pick the college that you can see yourself being successfull at, don't pick it just because it really expensive, IVY leage, or because that's where your parents went; pick what's best for you.

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

That if you didn't apply for a job on campus right away that It was very hard to get a job if you waited to long. Also, that the dining halls open late on the weekends

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

A piece of advice I would give to any student or parent looking into a college would be to find a college with a campus that attracts you. You won't always be in class or your dorm, so a campus with a large lawn if fun to study on, or play sports on with your friends or even have lunch! Also, make sure you join as many clubs or activties you can. It's a great way to make life time friends and helps you find out who you really are and what you enjoy doing.

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

Parents and students should take tours of the campuses that the student is interested in , and talk with the people that go to school there. They should out about the class sizes, what kind of teachers does the school have, and how much work does the average student spend studying outside of class. They should also find out about the different activities that occur on campus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Everyone should do well at this school.

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

The teachers are willing to help any student who needs extra help.

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

I would definately have this conversation willingly and openly. In fact, Spring of 2010, I will be returning to my high school to talk to juniors and seniors about college. The advice I would give would be to make sure that the student makes the decision for them- what they truly want. The parents will be understanding, especially with aid available. Stay focused, because it is easy to fall into bad habits. There is no one to wake you up and tell you to go to class; you have to push yourself and know that you can do it. Things will happen in college that make you question your abilities, but you can't give up on yourself; college is about new experiences, finding yourself, making the transition to an adult, and being on track to bettering your future. Parents, be there for your rising stars and constantly remind them that you are proud. It will give them that extra boost and reassurance that they are America's future.

What's unique about your campus?

I conisder the best thing about my school to be the warm and welcoming environment. It is very easy to adjust and on-campus as well as off-campus life is amazing. It is easy to balance school work and fun with discipline.

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

The worst thing about my school is sometimes, it can be clique-ish. I mainly thing it is within the freshmen body, since people are just trying to find somewhere to fit in.
