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

Don't stress about it. Go somewhere that attracts you and will set you up for a good career and dont worry about nit-picky details about the campus. The school environment has a lot to do with how happy you can be there for 4 years.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Attend this school if you are looking for a career oriented college experience rather than one full of school spirit.

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

Definately visit everywhere that you are interested in going. Ask alot of questions to professors, students, etc. Find out as much information as possible about the behind the scenes stuff. No school will tell you the negatives, so ask about everything.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wants to live in a city, boston is the place to be. There is always something to do outside of school. It is alot of hard work to make it through and graduate. They say it is easy to get into but hard to get out.

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

Keep the parent's wishes in mind, but make it the student's chioce ultimately. College freshman may be young, but only they have the best idea of what they desire in a college. If the wrong choice is made, it can always be fixed. As for making the most of the college experience, keep an open mind and meet as many new people as possible.

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

Let your child choose the area they want to be. If they want to study something specific and know what they are interested, let them. If they dont know what they are interested in yet, tell them to go where they want and get the basic courses out of the way. Make sure you enjoy the same things the other kids on campus enjoy.

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

Industrial design basics were a little longer than expected. Spread into Sophomore year. This problem is now fixed and a new, improved ciriculum is being used.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Deadlines on design projects with 24 hours notice.

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

In terms of finding the right college, many factors go into finally making the "right choice"; however, many think that once you choose your college that it is set in stone -- and sadly, for many, it is quite the contrary. One might never really know what life on campus will be like, even after a tour and proper research. It is truly about the entire experience, one you're living and taking the courses, meeting the fellow students, etc. I would say to firstly make sure the setting is appropriate for the student; I, for one, could not imagine being in any other setting than one that is urban. I need public transportation, easily accessible stores, and the ambiance. Secondly, the major does not necessarily need to be stressed early on, though coming to a school that specifies in a trade or career (like my school, Wentworth) should be thoroughly researched beforehand. Finally, in order to make the most of a college experience, there should be a proper balance of working hard and fun. A student just should make sure not to have too much of a good thing. Rewards are only meaningful after working hard, after all.

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

This school, while proficient in our co-op program, sets each student on a very specific track, pertaining to his or her major. For instance, I am currently in the Bachelor's of Science in Architecture program, and if I were to do poorly in one of my classes, I would have to begin on this "track" all over again. The design credits do not transfer, and the workload is very intense. Sometimes it may feel that, without an academic reward, it is not worth all the time and money on certain projects. However, post-graduation, it does pay off.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is willing to sacrifice a typical "college" life and can think in both an artistic and realistic way, should consider WIT. Long nights and money spent on art supplies (at least in the majors of architecture and design) should be budgetted, so a student that might possibly squander money away should be cautious.

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

Find the collage that you feel most comfortable living at, because you will have to be able to focus where you live and be able to get away when you are stressed out. Also, find the school that everybody seems to be happy with their studies (not parties). There is nothing wrong with a party however, if that?s all that makes the students at that school happy then you will get bored of your school work.

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

How hard my studies are, so I could have worked harder my first year.

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

Pick a place where you know you will be happy. It's probably not that same place your friends are going. But if you pick the right college then making new great friends that you will have for life will be easy. Choose a school that will make you work hard and will help you to do your best all the time. Know how you study and retain information and see if that school works to your advantage. i.e hands on learners have a lot of projects and internships. Work hard but take time to relax as well. Don't get stressed to the point where you might do something you regret. Give it a chance. Even if you feel college is not for you. Tough it out, you never know. And lastly make friends with your professors, they're the ones that give you your grades and will help you when you need it. Make sure they know your name and who you are. A good relationship with a good professor is your greatest asset in getting through it all.
