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

The advice I would give is don't follow your friends to the college they are all going to. Go where you are going to feel comfortable and where you are going to pursue your career. For instance, don't go to an agricultural college when you are wanting to do nursing. Also, if you don't think you are ready to leave home, choose a college close to home even if it is a community college. You are going to feel more comfortable and have more confidence b/c of the smaller class sizes, and easier chances to make friends.

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

If you don't live on campus in dorms or live the greek life then you really don't hear anything about what is going on on campus. That is just one downfall.

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

That the class sizes are wonderful. Small but not too small, you get enough interaction w/ other students

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

Washburn tends to be unorganized and difficult to get problems dealt with, but most of the classes are nice to take.

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

You have to visit the college and sit in on a class. Talk to actual students there and not just the ambassador's because that is what will give you the best picture of the college you're looking at attending. Also remember that the amount you pay does not always reflect the education that you will recieve. Try to find out the job placement rating of the school before you decide where you're going.

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

I don't really brag about Washburn. I just say the small classes are really nice.

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

This school is smaller. When they say the classes have fewer students they didn't lie like K-State. The football field is in the middle of campus.

Visit the school and go check out the classes.

Nothing is really frustrating at Washburn for me.

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

For parents I would make sure the campus security is great to help when leaving your child at college. Also, to allow your child to grow up, and make big grown decisions for later on in life. For students, be careful when starting college, to not get caught up in everything else going on outside of school. You are there to live, learn, laugh, and grow up. Know where the library is!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Once again I am not frustrated by anything at school.

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

View several different schools. Look at ones that are different sizes and different kinds of area (in the city, rural areas, etc...) it allows you to experience different types of areas and get a feel for what you really want. Try and get involved with the school; you meet alot more people that way. I recommend staying in a dorm the first year because that is how I met most of my friends today.

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

I wish that the campus was more active over the weekends. when I lived on campus I hardly saw anyone over the weekends. You dont see people walking around the campus like you would at a larger school.

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

I would tell the student to think about how they learn. If they learn better in a smaller classroom in which they get to have open discussions and do group work, they should look at smaller colleges. Another thing they should think about is whether or not they can balance their social life and their classes. If they are constantly giving in to the temptation of partying when they need to be studying, they should choose a college that has less of those temptations.

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

The social life isn't as good as it could be. I wish there would be more opportunities to meet new people. It would be fun if there was a coffee shop or area to hang out and study that everybody went to.

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

The student-teacher relationships are just amazing! If I miss class, my teachers email me to make sure that I am OK! They are so helpful and accessible and they all know my name. For that matter, President Farley even knows my name!!

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

Make the visits. You can't choose a college out of a brochure; after all, those shiny pieces of paper are really on public relations tactics trying to draw you in. But when you are on campus, you can talk to real students and teachers. You will see what you will be around all the time and get a feel of the atmosphere. Also, use your gut. Your instincts are usually a pretty good indicator of what school is right for you. Don't be scared to leave home. Dream big, spread your wings, and fly!!! To make the most of your college experience, you should be involved. Don't overstretch yourself, but pick two or three organizations that you are interested in and be ACTIVE. Don't just pay your dues and get the tshirt. Make sure that you don't put off studying. That is the whole reason you are there!!! Make friends, form study groups, use available campus resources like the library and study cubbies to make the most of your study time. Finally, don't forget to have fun. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most people. Live it up, but study hard.

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

There are a few rules that could use some tweaking. Sometime it seems like instead of one person getting in trouble, the university is intent on brining down three other students who had nothing to do with thte problem, as is seen with the alcohol rules. (Any body in the room gets in trouble even if they aren't drinking.)

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

Make sure that you not only take the college sponsored tours, but that you talk and interact with students who are not being paid to make their school look better. Spend time on campus without a guide. Check out their website to see what they emphasize. Subscribe to their newsletter to see what kind of awards they get, and how they spend their money. Once in college, get active. Find something you like, and go with it. Don't be afraid you won't fit in, eventually someone else will be the new kid on campus. Everyone's been there. Don't feel obligated to do everything. Do what you like and stick with it.

What's unique about your campus?

They have an extreme amount of activities to get involved in that fit in everyone's time schedules.

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

They have absolutely no sense of arts. There is no emphasis placed on making changes in the world.
