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

Make sure you research the area around the college to see what all there is to offer. Is the area known as a "party town" or is it usually pretty calm? Look into what kind of jobs are avaliable if your going to need to work while taking classes. The bigger the area, the more jobs that are avaliable. It really just depends on the person and what they are looking for. Also look into the scholarships and financial aid that is offered by the school.

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

I wish I would have known that parking is a big problem at the college. There is currently a parking deck being built to help the parking situation so hopefully it will be solved this fall semester. I have to park on a side street to avoid searching for parking space.

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

Valdosta State is a great school for those who want to be in a college town and for students who do not want to be to far away from home but far enough and also to get an excellent education and learn life lessons at the same time.

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

Find the college that will give you the best in your major. Find a place that is able to provide you with financial aid if needed. Also find a college where the classes are not too big because the professors are able to focus on each individual student better. Go out and have fun but not to much because college is not just where you learn from books it is also where you learn long life lessons and grow into the person you want to be. Find some where that you feel comfortable being and that you can see yourself staying for your four years. Also pick a college with alot of community service activities.

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

It's not located in a big city. I'm from Atlanta and Baltimore so it just hard some times when I want to be me in a more busy environment.

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

In finding the right college, there are many things that you should look into. First of all, if you know what your intended major is, then that should be a factor as to where you go. For example, VSU has the number one ranked Communication Disorders program and since that?s my major, it was definitely something to look into. Also, I feel that you need to look at the town itself and see if there are activities that you can participate in and see the number of available places to work and live. Parents should look at expenses and a school's record to see whether it seems suitable for his or her child. Students should look into everything because they are the ones that are going to living there. Make sure the school has a sport you're interested in, a local church that?s inviting, or even learn about Greek life. Take every little detail into consideration and good luck!

What kind of person should attend this school?

I feel that this school siuts someone that loves a city environment, but also enjoys the small, hometown hospitality.

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

I would tell parents and students alike to ask different students around campus about what they think about the school, and specifically about whatever interest the inquiring student has. I would make sure that I ask a variety of students maybe about 5 or 6 and definitely talk to someone that is majoring in my anticipated field of study.

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

I think that some of the faculty can be kind of rude at times.
