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

Find out what kind of grants, scholarships and finincial aid you can recieve from the schools you are applying to. Get organized and plan out what you want to do, what classes you want to take and how long it will take you to accomplish your goals. Ask questions because you will not always get information handed to you. Live on campus, it is a great experience and good practice for adulthood, you gain much more responsibility and maturity this way. Also, by being involved on campus you make more friends, college is about developing who you are-- your identity as well as your career. Don't get overwhelemed, you can only do as much as you capable of, so try not to stress. However, this does not mean that you shouldn't care, not go to class and party all the time. After all your main goal in college is to get an education. Remember all of these things and you will be fine and your college experience will be beneficial.

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

How many hours we had to take and how to plan out my time here. There are many rules and things that I was not aware of until after getting here and some I have learned recently.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The variety of food on campus gets old. Also, they do not tel you everything you need to know in regard to classes you need to take and how to get of here on time, you are on your own and are expected to ask a lot of questions to get what you need done.

Describe the students at your school.

Some are very focused, and concerned with getting a college degree, while others are less motivated and dont really apply theirselves to classes or self improvement.

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

Look for schools and communities that really encourage students to push theirselves in their degree and other interests. Often times I see students loose interest in hobbies and interests because they become more focused on working or partying. So parents and students should look for a school that is affordable and offers as much help as possible to attend, and also promotes and rewards students more often when pursueing self improving activities outside of schoolwork.

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

More about summer and winter classes, and finical aid for those terms. Also study abroad opportunities,and finical aid for those aswell.

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

A good start at finding the right college would be to visit the campus, and if possible, stay a few days on campus and sit in on potential classes. You can get a pretty good idea, but you won't know for sure if it's the perfect college for you or not until you actually start. As for making the most out of your college experience, make priorities. I would advise that the number one priority be your schoolwork. Studying and getting homework done on time is vitally important to your success not only in college but also in your future career and life. The habbits ( focusing, accomplishing what you want, finishing what you have started, etc.) you form while in college, are the ones you will have when you get out. If you make good habits it will be that much easier to get a good start at life. If you have bad habits or if you have not fully developed certain habits, it will likely make for a bumpier start in your chosen career. So try to get as much of that accomplished while in college. You'll find you still have time for fun stuff too.

What's unique about your campus?

The campus. I just like it... it's hilly, but pretty.

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

It's whatever you make of it. You have to choose your attitude. Find a place you feel the most comfortable in, and yet feel like you'll be stretching yourself academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Let it shape your character and your mind.

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

When you decide the college that you want to support for four years go for the academics, then the class size, then finally decide on the campus by the beauty of the college/university campus

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

It doesn't matter if you attend the best, most expensive college in the nation if you don't put anything into it. Get involved, study, make friends. If you do this, you will learn, no matter where you are!

What's unique about your campus?

The campus is awesome and the workout facility is top-of-the-line.

The campus is really pretty. Our mascot is an abstract, red lump. Our football team just moved up to class A.

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

Definitely visit as many college campuses as you possibly can. Observe classes in the field in which you intend to study, visit the dorms (remember, the sample room any college campus will show you is probably better than most of the other rooms on that campus.), and eat campus food. Don't base your decision on where your friends are going, and absolutely do not base your decistion on where your significant other is attending school. Keep in mind that you probably won't be with that person when you graduate college. College is fun, but it is still school. Find a place where you think you will be comfortable but at the same time motivated to learn. Moderation is key!

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

Find what you want to do in life and find an appropriate program that will fit it. Also, go somewhere that you feel comfortable ON campus. Visit the campus on a NICE day. Ask about the different activities and groups that are available if you are not an athlete. When you attend the university, GET INVOLVED; whether it is atheltics/greek life/volunteer groups... whatever. The more you are involved, the more people you will meet and the more fun you will have. Go Tops!

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

I brag about the advertising program and how it helped my education. I also brag about the swimming and diving team, considering I was a diver for 4 years.
