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

I would tell myself to take a deep breath. In high school, the idea of college terrified me, it felt like being thrown into the lion's pit. There were a lot of unexpected things about college that I didn't realize and taking the time to research various schools and classes would have been helpful.

What's unique about your campus?

The staff has been incredibly supporting and helpful in every aspect of learning

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Wingate is best known for the pharmacy program. They recently opened a new pharmacy building for the Pharmacy Graduate program and thishas brough in a lot of new students. Becsuse this is what our school is well known for the program is pretty competitive so only the top students stand a chance in the program.

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

If I could go back and tell myself one thing during my senior year, it would be dont take time for granted. Every senior spends their year complaining about how they are ready to be out of school, but truthfully you will wish you had just one more year when this year comes to an end. You will miss all of your friends and the memories that you made, the clubs that you were apart of, and the people that you might never see again. Something that you also need to do in this precious time is learn to manage your time in college this is HUGE. Learn how to study, what study skills work best for you and how you can make the best grades possible. Responsability is also one of the things that you will find to challange you the most, this is key in college because you have to make the responsable decision to do your homework at night and to wake up for school in the morning because your parents arent gonna be there to force you to do it. And most importantly just remember to be you and dont let anyone make you change.

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

The thing that I would consider to be the worst thing about wingate is that there are a lot of "clicks". This is a problem that you will run into at every school but the reason that this bothers me the most is because if you come into the school not being a part of a click than it is hard to meet new people and it is hard to fit in with people that you dont know because they arent willing to get to know you.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a highschool senior I would tell myself that I would have to focus more, and learn not to procrastinate. I would also try to have better study habits, so that it would have been a smoother transition from highschool to college. I would also tell myself not to be so nervous, because everything would work out because there are so many places to get help if I would need it. If I could go back I would tell myself that I would meet new people and that the professors are very helpful. Something I love about college is that the classes are very engaging and fun. I love going to class, and I love the campus. The only other advice I could give myself would be to have fun and enjoy it, because the time passes by extremely fast.

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

Before I came to Wingate, I wish I had known my way around campus better.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I think the most frustrating thing is the all of the construction going on at school.

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

Right out of college, I was a perfectionist who felt a lot of pressure to know exactly what I wanted and how to get there. I worked full-time and had little time to myself or to spend with friends. Only after an injury slowed me down did I take the time to explore my interests and create hobbies as well as develop strong friendships. I now know the importance of a balanced lifestyle and that perfection is as rarely necessary as it is achievable. If I could talk to myself as a high school senior, I would play the song “Que Sera Sera” and tell myself to slow down. I would tell the younger version of me that you don’t always have to be driving at full speed – it’s okay to take the time to enjoy the ride.

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

I would tell myself to as many scholarships as possible. I would've gave myself a pep-talk on being more involved in school in the community. I would have told myself to apply myself a little more as I had the brains to become the valedictorian if I really wanted to. I'd tell myself to volunteer more and always have a smile on! A smile is the best thing a girl can wear right?

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

Some advice I would give my highschool self is get started on shopping even earlier because you do NOT want to be rushing to get everything done at once. Before packing make a list of what you need and keep adding to the list as you go. Make sure not to cross anything of until it is packed, otherwise it might get left behind. As far as when you actually get to your campus on move-in day, don't worry about living with someone you don't know, just strike up a conversation with your roommate to get tensions out of the room. Also, don't worry about the whole friend-making thing because once you get into orientation, you'll meet plenty of people. Just make sure to strike up some conversations with people and if people say hi to you say hi back and introduce yourself. It's a great way to start a friendship. Hope this helps!

Clarice, dropping out of high school was a great idea. Stay at LCC and talk to the U of O councelors. You can go to university. Your high school counselor is a racist incompetant boob who shouldn't be allowed around children. Save your money, take out loans now before the system crumbles irreparably and there's no one left to help you. Toodles.

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

I would tell myself to enter more scholarships. Although college is expensive, it doesn't have to be! Scholarships are an easy way to pay for college and should never be overlooked. I would also tell myself to be more outgoing and get more involved. I would love to play college sports, but have no experience at all. I should have gotten more involved back in high school when I had the chance! Lastly, I would tell myself not to get overwhelmed. College is a big transition and may be expensive, but everything will eventually fall into place. We may have college debts in the future, but with what we learn during our years here, we can do anything we put our minds to!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is definately the people. Even as scared little freshmen, everyone was kind to one another and no one was left out. At Wingate University, the upper classmen make sure the freshmen know where every one of their classes is. They also include them in activities, and encourage them to attend competitions. At Wingate University, everyone is a family.

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

Although I just started this school less than a month ago, I would say that the worst thing about Wingate University is the weather. At least two days out of every week are filled with rain! If you want to go to Wingate University, invest in an umbrella, rainboots, and a raincoat!

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

It's okay to be wrong, the goal is to learn. You don't have to be perfect. It's okay to change your major. It's okay if you're at the wrong college at first. It's okay if you take a class you don't need. It's okay if you don't get along with your room mate. Don't stress. When you're wrong, it's just a wonderful chance to learn, which is what you're supposed to be doing anyways. Ask questions. Seek advice. Don't be afraid to look naive or stupid. You're a freshman, you're not expected to know everything. Don't get so caught up in trying to be perfect and look like you have it all together that you miss out on the chance to learn from those who are older and wiser than you. Enjoy the present; learning and soaking up information and wisdom everywhere you can. Don't focus so much on the future (or the past), wishing it was next month, semester or year. You'll miss out on the beauty of the moment. Be wrong, mess up, learn from it and enjoy yourself.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who are okay with the small town feel and like the feeling of family. Students who are friendly, outgoing and like/are from the south will like this school.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

I did all of my work at an alternate campus so I am not familiar with the campus itself. Wingate comes highly recommended for RN-BSN completion and for its school of pharmacy.

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

If I could go back in time, I would insist on caring a great deal more about academics as a high school senior. Personally, I think that it takes a long time to truly grow up in this life. I would give myself advice on going away to college rather than living rather close to home, which gave me ample opportunity to go home when I wanted to. I would also give myself advice to continue my education through graduate school before getting married and having children. I would not be in such a rush to marry and settle down. I would have an improved 'reach-for-the-stars' attitude.
