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

First, figure out what kind of atmosphere will make you most comfortable. Rural vs. City, University vs. small college; whether it is Co-ed, the racial composition should be carefully considered. I would suggest going to collegeboard.com for these statistics. Most schools offer the same degrees and programs of study, so that is not a big issue. For students in their first year of college they are independent and isolated, if they don't feel included or comfortable in their school environment they won't return for their second semester. Cost and Financial Aid are the second most important thing to consider. Look for private scholarships, and make sure to contact the school about scholarships they offer, because it may not be announced or offered to you in your letter. Just stay well-informed, so that your options are numerous and specific to your needs.

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

That I had a bigger interest in Physical Science, which isn't exactly emphasized here. Also, that it only recently became co-ed because being surrounded by girls so much.

WHEELOCK COLLEGE IS FABULOUS AND PERFECT FOR ME.

WHEELOCK COLLEGE IS FABULOUS AND PERFECT FOR ME.

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

WHEELOCK IS A SMALL SCHOOL, BUT IT'S IN THE MIDDLE OF A HUGE CITY; BOSTON, MA. THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO AROUND THE CITY FROM SHOPPING TO JUST HANGING OUT IN THE BOSTON COMMONS. WHEELOCK'S CLASSES ARE NICE AND SMALL SO YOU'RE ABLE TO ESTABLISH RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR PEERS AND PROFESSORS.

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

I WOULD TELL THEM TO FIND A COLLEGE THAT IS RIGHT FOR THEM. DON'T BASE YOUR DECISION OFF OF ANYTHING LIKE PARTIES AND THINGS LIKE THAT. FIND A SCHOOL THAT HAS THE RIGHT CLASSES AND PROGRAMS FOR YOUR CAREER GOALS AND WORK HARD. COLLEGE IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN HIGH SCHOOL, THERE WILL BE NO ONE HOLDING YOUR HAND SO PICK A SCHOOL THAT YOU WILL FEEL COMFORTABLE IN. COLLEGE IS ALSO ONE OF THE BEST TIMES OF YOUR LIFE, SO ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS. WORK HARD, BE RESPONSIBLE, BUT ALSO KNOW WHEN TO HAVE FUN, AND WHEN TO STUDY AND DO SCHOOL WORK. (:

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

there should be a balance between studies and leasure. time management is something that should be given much thought, since they do not emphasise it in high school as much as they should.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Not having much in commun with the people that attend the school.
