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

It might sound corny, but follow your heart! If you step onto a campus and it feels right to you, it probably is. But even before you step onto a single campus to visit, think about yourself and who you are as an individual. Do you enjoy close relationships with your teachers and classmates, or do you prefer anonymity in a learning environment? Are you a city person or a country person? Do you mind extremely hot or extremely cold weather? Are you certain about your choice of a major, or do you need to find a school with a variety of majors so that you'll have a little "wiggle room"? No matter what school you decide upon, you have to also decide to make the best of your experience. No college is perfect, but if you make an immediate effort to get involved with activities and to meet a variety of people, you will be happy with whatever school you choose. Don't stress about your college decision; as long as you make an effort socially and academically, you're likely to be happy wherever you end up. Best of luck!

It is small and it seems to be friendly and nice instead of everyone being an as hole. I think that being where people are nice is very important

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

I think parents and students should listen to their heart and go to school where they feel at home. I also think that staying over night is one of the most important things you can do. It can help you figure if it is a place where you do feel at home. I also think that most of the decison should be the students only if the student is a serious student. I strongly encourage parents to not to force a school on thier kids because they like it. I have realized that this usually results in a bad situation for the student.

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

Its location to shopping and the party's that are more personal. the class size is something I brag about also the new buildings being built its location to Chicago and Lake Michigan and everything like that.

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

As much as the process of finding the "right" college is a family decision, ultimately, the student is the one who will spend nearly four years of his or her life at the school that is finally selected. When you really do soul searching, and compare schools, environments, educational value and other factors, you will know in your heart what the best choice for you will be. College is tough; to make the adjustment to college life easier, it is best to find a college that fits your personality and learning style. If you are not comfortable on your visit to a selected college, you probably won't be comfortable living there either. And remember, college is NOT like it appears on TV shows; many hours of class and hard work is what you are there for, not for hanging around drinking coffee, partying and sleeping late. The college experience can be a great one if you make your initial decision thoughtfully and carefully.

What's unique about your campus?

The personal size of the classes make Valparaiso University an easier environment in which to learn and grow. Small classrooms provide me with the opportunity to participate in discussions more frequently.

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

Sometimes Valparaiso University is too small to have enough variety of things to do on the weekends. And the food is the worst!
