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

I would advise myself to let go of the meaningless crushes I had and focus on school, along with extracurricular activities. Looking back on it now, I can see that I did have time to study, socialize, and participate in sports. Also I would tell myself to stick it out through Anatomy & Physiology. The whole year of Biology I just finished was way more punishment than I needed, especially when I could have simply taken A&P in highschool and gotten at least 4-8 credits for it. Lastly, I would tell myself to not be so hard on myself.

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

Most of the people who attend this school find the man/woman of their dreams and marry them, either during college or shortly after college.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about attending WWU is that the campus and surrounding town are pretty much "dead" on the weekends. College Place has two universities, but other than that it's essentially a retirement community.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates were sent here by parents who wanted education to strengthen their children's Adventist beliefs. They tend to be bright if naive, and (generally speaking) helpful people.

Think carefully before choosing a school based on what others want for you. They won't be living the next four (or more) years completely enveloped in this chosen environment, and the course of their lives won't be as affected by this choice either. Take such advice to mind, not to heart. That is: think about it, but don't let the expectations of others decide for you something that you will ultimately be responsible for.

The relaxed spiritual atmosphere. This is a Seventh-Day Adventist university that encourages strong spirituality without being extremely conservative to the point of being ridiculous. It is one of the less conservative Adventist colleges.

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

When selecting a college or university, it is important to keep in mind not only the cost or what education you will be paying for, but what kind of people you will be interacting with. Does the student body, in general, seem to be taking their education seriously? Do they seem to be taking their education TOO seriously? I believe the quality of education you receive has a lot less to do with the courses, or faculty, than your attitude which is affected by how you fit in with the school as a whole. Visiting the campus and observing firsthand is very important to determining if the college or university is the right one for you. See if tours or a "college days" option are offered. To make the most of your college experience, attitude is everything. Don't drown yourself in homework, but don't be afraid to get your feet wet either. Finding the perfect balance between work and friends can be difficult and is something that you will have to practice for the rest of your life. The sooner you learn how, the more fulfilling your life will be.

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

Basing your choice in college on financial circumstances should not be the first or major factor. Having a solid understanding of what the student wants for their dreams of becoming something should be the primary factor. Enabling the student is what allows for growth in the student themself, whether they learn that they don't want to do what they chose at first, or that they do end up loving it. Being an adult means being given the ability to make your own choices. Whether they end up being right or wrong is not something the chooser should be afraid of. Having the willingness to step out of your comfort zone to attempt and experience something new gives a grander perspective to everything you know. That is what makes a person an adult. This choice about going to college is fits right into that. Following what your dreams are is not wrong, nor is it impractical. People change the world, for better or for worse, based on their dreams. Dreams shape the world.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone with an open mind and a strong drive to achieve success. Having a willingness to learn and adaptability skills will help out a lot too. Strong organizational skills is also something that is definitely key, as organizing your own schedule is a major part of living and going to school here. Someone with a more defined socioeconomic status than I will have an easier time here, financially.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who has no desire to do well or achieve anything shouldn't go here, it's a waste of both the professors' time and your own. Someone very radical, whether liberal or conservative, in their political views might find things awkward or hard to deal with here.

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

For undergrad, I would recommend attending a small school, because you have a much more personal relationship with the people that you go to school with. However, keep in mind that sometimes with smaller schools, there is also a lack of resources and funding. I think that attending a smaller school can help you have a much more positive and successful undergraduate experience. However, for graduate school it may be most valuable to attend a large university to take advantage of a large schools' resources and networking possibilites.

What's unique about your campus?

Small school so classes are more personal and your professors get to know you by name

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

Take the time to visit the various colleges that you are interested in or may be interested in. A first hand expierence of the campus when they are in school is helpful in seeing what the campus is like when you would be there. Also find one the specializes in your area that you want to pursue. You will learn more and will be more likely to find people that are interested in the same things you are. Get involved when you get to school. By being involved you will be able to influence the school so that it will be closer to what you want to get out of school. Plus it will often give you a step up when you head out into the corporate world after college. Take the time to learn dont just take the classes for granted you pay for the teachers time dont waste it. Get a job working for a company that is in your field of study it will help you to see what will be required of you in the future.

What's unique about your campus?

The Willingness of teachers to help you outside the classroom.

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

To begin your college search you need to start by finding a college that sparks interest and fits in your budget/can help with financial aid. Once I had done some online research i narrowed my choices to three schools. I say the best way to get to know a school is to visist the campus and/or talk to the students. You need to know what you are getting into before you decide on that school. The mistake i made involved me following the crowd. Don't do what I did. Choose a school you feel comfortable with; you feel like you'll receive the full college experience and a school that will give you countless opportunities.

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

I wish i had known that there are so many rules and expectations. I think i disspointed a lot of people because of it.
