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

Advice that I would give to future college students and their families is to make sure that you select a college that fits you, your character, your style, and your ambitions. Students should choose a college where they know where they will be happy--- not where mom or dad were happy during their college years. In terms of advice about making the most of college, it is a great rule to live by that you should only play hard once you've studied and worked hard. College is about learning and preparing for the future, so students' priorities should rest in their academic endeavors. Take classes that interest you, and also take classes that challenge what you think you already know. Grow and learn new things. After taking your classes seriously, then you get to play. It is important to make good friends and good memories during your college years. However, it's important to do this in the way that you want. Don't let other people tell you want to do to have fun. Join clubs, get involved, meet people, go out. Work hard and play hard. It's a good rule to live by.

What's unique about your campus?

One of the best things about my school is that it provides ample opportunities to grow as students and people through a wide variety of means both in and out of the classroom. My school has a genuine desire to help mold people to become those stewards who will change the world for the better.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

One of the most frustrating things about my school is that it has a goal to grow and reach a cap of 1000 students but has not made some of the necessary changes that go along with this increase in students. Although the increase is not a lot, and the campus is still small, the administration still needs to pay close attention to what students feel they need in response to these changes (example, more professors in a certain subject area, or more sections of classes offered each semester).

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

The best way to find the right school is to jump right in and try things out. Sitting in on classes as a senior in high school helped me to understand what type of collge was the best for me. Variety is the spice of life, and we cannot know what we want if we have never experienced different things. Get out and visit campuses, talk to current students, or attend a social event. This will allow you to find the best school that suits your needs. Leave fear and anxiousness behind you and roll with the punches. Not everyone is meant for college, and there are many colleges that arent for everyone. There is no shame in transfers! Above all else, remember that college is what you make of it, and you do get out what you put in. If all you are looking for is a degree and a job, you will find it, but it is when you look deeper that you truly find the "college experience."

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who hates being the center of attention and having one-on-one sessions with teachers. You cannot just blend here. Everyone stands out.

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

I would suggest applying to a combination of schools - maybe two schools you're sure you can get into and be happy at, and one or two reach schools - where you know you really want to be. The college application process is difficult, but you should always aim for your top pick school because you never know what might happen. Westminster was my dream school, but I knew that we could never afford the private liberal arts school tuition so I shoved it to the back of my mind and tried to avoid thinking about it. Thanks to the kind words of my mother I went ahead and applied to Westminster just to see what happens - and got in! I was so happy, but just knew that affording the school was out of the question - that is, it was until I worked with the financial aid department. They were so understanding and really took the time to sit down with my mother and I and work it all out. I am now a Junior at my top pick school and cannot wait to get the rest of my life started in grad school and beyond.

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

Fulton is a very small town and there isn't that much to do - but if that's what you're used to then you'll absolutely love it - or if the city life isn't your speed, it's really relaxing around here.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking for a party school - the students of Westminster have a ton of fun, but academic work comes first - no contest.

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

I wish I had a little more knowledge of how available financial aid was. There isn't a lot available and everything I have is in loans and now coming on my senior I don't have a lot of options open to me.

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

I would advise visits the most and to do so when the students are there. Make sure you get a chance to talk to the students and get their point of view on the good and the bad. Also depending on your financial situation look into financial aid and the cost of the school. Ask about the class sizes and one on one times with instructors. If possible sit in on classes to get an idea on the class setups and lectures.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who isn't serious or who doesn't have a strong work ethic. This school places a lot of emphasis on academics.

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

Help your child understand long term affects of Alcohol and drugs and what it is like to flunk out of school. I have seen students flunk out and have their life ruined. Make sure they know what little future they may have if they flunk out!!!!

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

Anything valuable you have, ex: perscribed medecine, watch, ring, neclace, money. . . . etc. . . . BUY A SAFE AND HIDE IT!! Remember, people will steal a small safe and pick it!!!!! Also, DOUBLE CHECK UR ADVISOR!! I AM GOING TO BE A 5TH YEAR BECAUSE OF MY ADVIOR'S STUPIDITY !!!!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone looking for a big university, little involvement, only looking to do the minimum to graduate from college. Someone who is looking for little diversity, not wanting to live in a small town.

This school is smaller and more energy/environmentally conscious. Although there is a major emphasis on academics, there are also many social functions.

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

For any students who wants to be stimulated academically in school, choose a smaller college. Any student who needs the stimulation without the added pressure should choose a small school that doesn't put such a major emphasis on grades and competition. To get the most out of school socially, a student should consider larger, state colleges. Making the most of a college experience relies on wanting to have a certain experience and attempting to achieve it in an environment where it is more likely to occur. For instance, if a student wants to party all the time and still earn a degree, he/she would be better suited for Mizzou than Westminster. A student looking for intense academic stimulation would be more comfortable at an Ivy League school than Mizzou.

Look for a school where you'll be happy. You want to go to a place where it'll feel okay for having left home. You should go to a school that will give you exactly what you are looking for.

Describe the students at your school.

There is a diverse student population at Westminster, ranging from those who barely prepare for class to those who are very driven academically.

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

Research, research, research. Attending college is an investment and you should treat it as one. Look at all the opportunities the school offers in your own individual perspective: academically, financially, socially and culturally. First, make sure that the academics offered at the school will open up the opportunity to repay the money you are paying to attend. Make sure that your major areas of interest are included in their curriculum and remember your mind may change, so do not limit yourself. Second, search within a reasonable price range for yourself because these loans will never leave you. Loans are good and fine, but do not go overboard. Third, you MUST visit the school that you are planning to attend. The feel of a school is very important. If you are not comfortable at a school, you will either one, not do well; or two, have a poor overall experience. Lastly, look into the school's social life and its cultural diversity. Does it offer the resources for you to thrive socially and culturally? If not, keep searching. This is one of the biggest decisions of your life. Now research thoroughly and invest wisely.

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

The worst thing about my school is their low salaries for adjunct professors. While they take very good care of the tenured professors, it is very hard to entice young, emerging professors and keep them around to become tenured professors.

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

A small college creates a more personal environment for learning. My school is intimate enough that the teachers know all their students' names, and within a year of taking classes most students know each other. It's easier for me to learn in such an environment.

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

I wish I had known that college students don't get to sleep. I also wish I had known how big a difference it makes to live off-campus freshman and sophomore year.
