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

The first advice that I would give to students as well as parents is; enjoy the college searching process! It is wise to start inquiring about different schools during the student 2nd semester sophomore year. Request tons of information from schools that interest you. If you don't know what you specifically would like to major in, you should explore schools that offer a broad variety of majors. College visits are the most effective step in choosing which college you want to attend. Parents should set aside ample amount of time for family college visits. Meeting with college advisors helps students better understand what the college has to offer. Students should pay close attention to the teacher to student ratio. Knowing the teacher to student ratio helps a student choose a college with the right class size for them. Overall students as well as parents should decide together what college satisfies the students needs and expectations;as well as the parents.

Dont be afraid to apply to any college! It may seem impossible that you will qualify, but you never know until you try! And never decide on the first one that accepts you, it may seem like the easiest way to go, but wait to see if you get accepted anywhere else and then decide.

Vincennes University is the oldest university in Indiana, but offers cutting-edge courses and technology programs, and the school faculty are extremly willing to assist students.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are all like me and strive to work hard on class papers and project, and the class sizes are really small (usually under 30).

Visit the college more than once. Many of the schools I visited seemed right for me during the tour, but when I visited during a school function as a guest, I could see the real school spirit and attitude in the campus. Also, ask alot of questions. Financial aid, housing, student activities, career placement, and department chairs and deans should be overwhelmed with your questions. Not only does it answer all your questions, but lets them know you are interested and they will responde to that. Finally, check into an Honors Program at the school. The perks are the best many schools have to offer.

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

When looking for a college, do not make the choice based on costs. Some of the best colleges aren't big or hard to get into. Many focus on structure and are so cut-throat that it makes you a cold person after getting through it all. If you don't make it through, you will usually endure a lot of stress because of it. At a smaller community college, you can get the education you need to be successful. I'm not saying you will be really rich, but you will live well. Not everyone is going to be rich of course, but the need to live well and be able to support a family comfortably is important. Sometimes I think many people over look the real meaning of college. Its to help further your education to perform your job well. Some mistake it as an opprotunity to become really rich wich isn't the case most of the time. A community college can get you where you need, and at a great value. Choose wisely!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Vincennes is a very career focused school. Most people attend knowing that they can receive a great education at an affordable price.

The most important advice I can give someone would just be outgoing and open minded. Look into all types of colleges, big and small. Explore every option before making the choice. You have to know who you are a person but also, who you want to be. Getting the most out of your experience is completely up to you. Don't be afraid of new things, people, or ideas. Be yourself, work hard, and most of all have fun!

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

It is important to know what you want to do in life. Most college students don't know what they want to do for a career or even who they really are themselves, but college is a great way to discover both. I suggest starting out small at an affordable college and then transferring to a larger college/university. It is better to start out small for financial purposes. Another great reason to start out small is to adjust to class sizes. If the individual thinks he/she enjoys smaller classes than he/she can seek a small campus or stay at the original school. If the individual decides he/she would rather enjoy larger classes then for the future he/she can seek a larger campus. A college experience is not only about the educational purpose but a social purpose that helps an individual grow. When finding the right campus, be sure to visit colleges to get the "feel? of the campus to see which environment better suits the student. Ask students around campus how they enjoy their experience at the school and ask what kinds of social activities the school offers. Any education is better than no education!

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

The worst thing about ny school is the lack of parking avability. The campus constructed a new dorm and the student number has greatly increased and it is hard it park in a spot where you would not get a ticket from the campus security. Another thing I do not like is the attitude some teachers maintain. Some teachers put the students down like a harsh sports coach, instead of telling the students what they did wrong and how to fix it, and encourge the students to better, the teachers would rather critize.

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

Vincennes University is an affordable school with a nearly every major. It is smaller than other schools which allows you to meet more people and become more active in the community, because the school is also in a small town (the first town ever in Indiana). The school enrolls most students whom apply, and the education is totally worth the while. The school even helps to find internships and jobs for the future, even after graduation.
