Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Walsh is a very friendly place to study. They are open and welcoming. As soon as I walked on campus I felt at home with the students and faculty. The small classes allow for professors to get to know you, and they show concern about your success. There is a focus on Catholic teaching but yet they do not force religion on any student. Walsh is place that allows students to express themselves and they provide the tools needed to succeed in life and in your career.

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

Finding the right college can be an exciting yet stressful journey for both parents and students. I have to admit that for me it was an easy task. I knew I wanted to stay fairly close to home, attend a Catholic University, and I wanted to be a nurse. However, coming right out of high school many students don?t have these questions answered. Parents and students should visit as many universities as they can. This is the only way that they can gain a true feel for the many diverse aspects of a campus. Consider questions such as; do I want a large or small campus? What are my majors of interest? Once a college is chosen, in order to make the best of the college experiance, students should be dedicated to their studies and have a positive attitude. I have heard students say that they dislike a school for the teachers, or the class, or because they are not doing as well as expected. I truly feel that in the real work world there will be similar challenges. Accepting challenges and having a positive attitude are the keys to making the most of the college experiance.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

You should not attend Walsh University if you like a large campus with many class choices. Walsh is a great place to go if you know what your major is and if you have an idea what you want to do. However, if you are unsure there are not as many options because of the size. Walsh is also a Catholic University that does place importance on theology and philosophy, these are required courses. Walsh is a very acedemically challenging so students should be prepared to study and work hard in order to earn good grades.

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

In order to make a smart decision on the right college, I would tell them to make sure to pick the school for the right reasons. I believe that school should be for academics first, then social life and sports. Academics are the first priority, and all students will admit to that, but they will never say that they really picked a certain college due to a sport, and academics are secondary. In order to make the most of your college experience, you must not be shy and centric to the world around you. Be able to see more than one way, or else a healthy college lifestyle will not be available to you.

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

It is very expensive and it seems that the funding is used in the wrong areas. For instance, instead of funding the quality of our cafeteria's food they put money into a new sports facility, and also, instead of building more residence halls to accomodate our expanding student population, they cram three people into two person dorms, while living upper classmen in the freshman dorms because there simply isn't enough space.

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

Our basketball program is quite prestigous. We have small class sizes, where the professors are very accessible.

It's a very quaint university, but sometimes I wish it was a bit larger.

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

I would definitely urge them to visit many different types of colleges to see what their child likes best. You can never be too sure; make sure the student stays overnight at the college to gain a different perspective.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

My major is not the majority major on campus. so it's very difficult to have a lot of class choices.

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

In the search for the right college, take your time and evaluate all of your options. Make the effort to go out and visit the schools that you are interested in. Visit them more than once. This is one of the most, if not the most important decisions of your life. This decision will determine the person that you will become. Take the time to go and meet with faculty and staff of the schools. The school can look wonderful in the postcards and pictures they send, but you do not want to get into a school that looks and sounds nice when the staff is not commited to the students. Do not just base your decision on where your friends are going or where the social life is assumed to be the best. Wherever you go you will have plenty of time for your social life and making friends will come easy at college. Start your search early. You can never have too much time to evaluate a decision of this magnitude. Take your time and make the choice that best suites your needs and accomplish your goals to the fullest. Best of Luck!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is difficult to contact advisors and the teachers do not teach very well, they just read right out of the book for an hour and do not cover the material.

I would give the same advice that my parents gave me, when you go looking for a college dont look at the price make sure you feel comfortable there and you like the environment and then we will look at the price and find a way to make it work!!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Walsh University is the size of the school and the size of the classes. Have the size of classes like in high school makes it much easier to get to know your professor and to pay attention in class.

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

The worst thing about Walsh University I would have to say is getting accepted to live off campus. You would think it wouldnt be that hard, but here at Walsh they are pretty hard on who qualifies to live off campus.

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

As a campus ambassador, when I talk to the various families who are choosing a college or university they would like to go to, I tell them to consider their preference of the student to teacher ratio at the college/university of their choice. When looking at a campus, if they are considering staying on campus, the housing arrangements. Look at the retention rate at the university. Try to be involved in various activities without affecting your grades. Ask these questions; Does this institution provide free tutoring services? Can I call or email my professor(s) when I have a problem? What types of scholarships and/or grants are available? Go out and actually visit each college in which you are interested in attending before you pick your choice. Apply for your FAFSA and any other financial aid on time! If you have any questions or concerns, please, call the institution and find out. Do NOT let any question go without being answered! Talk with as many people as possible!

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

We have some hidden racism that occurs within the student population, also we currently only have a few professors that are of the minority, one of the greatest professors who ever taught here left this past summer before I could take her. We do not have any Sororities/ Fraternities!

Walsh is best known for its amount of commnity service and outreach by the students along with having high academic standards.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Walsh is unique in the fact that no class has more than around 20 students in any given classroom so the faculty is able to give each srudent the individual attention that he or she needs.

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

I would tell students to pick the campus that they feel the most comfortable on. As soon as you walk on a campus you will get a gut feeling of "this feels right" or "something here doesn't fit". Go with your gut. Then when you get there get involved. It is up to you to make the most out of college. Join clubs, make friends, and enjoy yourself while making time for your studies.

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

College is not about your friends or parties. It is important to find a school that will help you succeed in whatever you choose as a career path. It's great if you have fun while you're in school but it's far more important to be able to learn in an environment that you feel comfortable and safe. Make sure that you keep your mind open when looking at perspective schools because what you don't see can be more important than what you do see. Most importantly, your choice of college will change your life so take your time and explore all your options.

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

Not enough extra curricular activities for students who live on campus.
