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

The advice I wouldgive parents and or students about finding the right college and making the mostof the college experience is to start researching colleges early while in highschool to allow the student to pick a college that they know a little history on and one that meets their needs. Once the student has narrowed down their choices they should make a couple of visits to the campus different times of the year to get a feel of the environment in and around the campus. The student should schedule several meetings with a school counselor about the various activites and organization on campus that would be interesting to the student. Then once the student is on campus they should become a part of the community instead of keeping to themselves; colleg is about learning as well as fun and a great way to accomplish both is through networking.

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

Planning is one of the most important things to recommend to parents and students. It is imperative to keep track of financial aid statements, course schedules, just maintaining your papers organized. for students I recommend that being involved is important. VERY IMPORTANT. Going abroad, learning from different perspectives, just seeing the world and learning at the same time is something I would do if I had more time.

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

Before i came to this school i wish i would have known different study habits, but as a result of being there i learned on my own.

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

The worst thing about my school is the dormitories they need to rebuild them, we have no elevators at the girls dorm and its difficult to carry heavy loads to the 3rd floor 24/7. we have a heating system that is controlled so when the weather changes there are times in where the heat is still on and it should have been changed to AC and its frustrating , they need to upgrade.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The music, business. and adult evening program is very good at the school. Also the nursing and respiratory care program is quite good. The school's baseball team id Division I and they have won a few championships.

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

Go with what you feel is best for you realistically. There is nothing worse then having to transfer to another school, because you hate your current school. Ask as much questions as you can; in the endthings that seem trivial can make a big difference. After making a plan (courses), choose a few classes that you are interested in such as music, graphic arts, etc. Also if it is possible, study abroad! It may be for a semester or even during the summer, but I would encourage to do so. It will change your perspective of the world and really put a focus on what is important in life.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe the music program is the best thing about the school.

Columbia Union College, though a small institution, is focused on academics and the social and spiritual well-being of the student body.

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

The advice would give to parents/students on finding the right college, would be to look for a college that will cater to your intended major, your financial needs, and in most cases, the size of the college. To make the most out of your college experience, realize what your goals are in life and what you want to accomplish. Most importantly, and I know this isn't for everyone, keep God first and stay focused.

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

If I was to give any type of advice to an curious student seeking for a college, I would tell them to make sure the college they choose is one they will not hate. Make sure that they are ok with the dorm life and the rules asssociated with dorm life (if they chose to live on campus), find out the student teacher ratio, howmuch the school will cost you yearly, and what activities/clubs does the school offer. Also so I would tell them the greatest way to make a college experience worth while is to get involved. Getting involved with campus activities helps one feel like their apart of the school and shows alot of school spirit.

I recommend to the parents, research to institution that you child wants to attend. It is important to know what major are offered, the location, retention statistics and finacial structure. For students, it is never too early to start looking for a college to attend. I recommend to start looking at the start of sophmore year of high school. Apply for scholarships and grants, because every little bit helps. COMPLETE YOUR FASFA ASAP! You better you chances in getting aid for school. Plan to visit the schools that you apply. It is a good idea to make an unexpected visit to the school to see how campus life is on a normal basis. Talk with facaulty, staff and students to get a view of how college is at the college. Students, when you first get to college, realize that you are there to get a degree. You would not believe how many people flunk out of college in there freshmen year because they skip class and party a majority of the time. If you are having problems with homework or understanding what the professor said, ask for assitant from the professor or academic tutor. But of all things, just have fun.
