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

The decision to go to college is a large one. So far I have spent 5 semesters at college and it has been the best time of my life. I love college! I hope that all students could experience college the way I have. I think that choosing the school right for you is what shapes your experience at college. With that in mind, there are many things that should be considered when making the decision on where to go. Counselors in high schools consistently harp on the educational aspects which are very important. It is important to know that the college you choose has your major, the class size you desire, the minors you like, among other academic details. Athletics also play into some decision making. If you desire a football team and a lot of school spirit, it is important to keep that in mind when choosing the campus to attend. I also am a firm believer that you need to choose the school that YOU want. I have found and encountered many students who are attending school for their parents and as such their experience has been far from enjoyable. Ultimately, think, and make your own decision.

What's unique about your campus?

Wingate is a small school where you dont feel like a number. Here you are a person whom your teachers know by name and will do their best to make sure you excel as longas you put the effort forth too. Wingate has graduate programs that you have a better chance of getting into with an undergraduate degree here. It has many opportunities to get involved on campus and be somebody.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are looking for a big school with a lot of things in walking distance, then Wingate doesn't offer that. If you are looking to be another face in the crowd this small school would not be the best for you either. It is a private school and it quite expensive, so if you are looking to transfer out, then it costs too much to just get transfer courses.

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

The campus has the feel of a "family." Everyone is very caring for each other--the students and the faculty. The teachers make sure you have the help that you need and are not falling behind. They also will frequently have students to their homes for social activites and become life-long friends. Wingate also has a lot of great opportunities for a school so small--a variety of programs, strong international focus, and most students are given the opportunity for undergraduate research and study abroad at little extra expense.

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

Brochures and websites are great and very helpful, and structured, guided campus tours are a great way to "meet" a school. But you are selecting the place you will spend the next 4 (or more?) years of your life--that's a long time to select a school just off one "date" together. Take the time and effort to really get to know the people--talk to students in your possible department, visit with a professor or sit in on a class. Even better--see if there is a student willing to host you for a weekend. Certainly select a school that meets your academic, financial, and location requirements, but also trust your gut and how you feel. The school I graduated from was not my first choice--as it turns out, I hated my first choice after visiting but quickly knew I belonged at my school. After spending some time there, it felt like home. One more thing Mom and Dad--be sure to let go of the reigns; your opinion is very important, but you are not the one shopping for a school.

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

While Wingate's small size and location provide many excellent opportunities, it can also be somewhat limiting. Everything needed is within a short drive, but it is almost an hour (with traffic) to Charlotte to experience the cultural and educational opportunities of a large city. Great strides have been made to improve this, but course offerings sometimes overlap or are offered infrequently, causing some tight situations with scheduling.

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

Relax, take your time and don't apply too late. visit the college before you make any decision at all if you want to go there. For manking the most out of your college experience i reccommend getting to know your professors, getting involved in campus activities such as SGA, or a fraternity/sorority and doing intramural sports is a great way to meet people and stay in shape.

What's unique about your campus?

the best thing about our school is going to the basketball games and cheering with all the other students i go to school with and doing fraternity events with my brothers on the weekends.

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

The worst thing about our school is that there aren't enough rooms for new and upcoming students to live in so we have to cram too many people in bedrooms built for less than said amount of people. ie. 3 people in a 2 person room.

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

1. do not go to a school that your friends are going to. make sure its something you really want to do. 2.research very possible school, there are sooo many out there. make a list of things that you want out of your college experience and make sure that school has them all. 3. talk to the kids at that school and find out what their views of the school are. the tour guides are going to give you a fake answer. 4. visit on the weekend also to see what the school is like. a lot of schools the kids all leave come friday. 5. ask how many students transfer after their freshmen year. this will give you a good idea of how the kids are adapting and liking the school.

What's unique about your campus?

the best thing about wingate university is our international program offered to juniors. it allows you to travel somewhere of your choice at a very very low cost. at most other school you would not have this opportunity.

What's unique about your campus?

The thing I consider the best about my school is the fact that the classes are so small. In my school you are not just another number; you get one on one assistance from the professor if needed. It makes the learning environment better.

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

Choosing a college that suits you best can be a very hard thing to do, but the best thing you can do is research each of your college selections thoroughly and make sure it meets all of your wants and needs. Every college has something different to offer and it's important to find the qualities that are most important to you. Campus tours often give students an inside look at classrooms and dining areas and gives them a chance to actually see the new things they will be able to try and the new people they will meet. This helps students embrace the oppurtunities and experiences that they will have once they are in a college setting. Actually being on the campus and seeing how things look and getting a feel for the types of people there will ultimately help you decide if this is the perfect college for you.

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

I wish that I had known that there wasn't that much to do on campus on Saturdays and Sundays. During the week there are all kinds of activities and events but there isn't much to do on the weekends because most of the campus goes home for the weekend, leaving less than half of the students on campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you like small schools with small classrooms and lots of friendly people then Wingate University is the perfect school for you. There are tons of events that get you culturally, politically, and socially involved. Everything is within walking distance and all academic resources are easily accessable. It's like a small community with close friends and faculty and staff that care about and socialize with their students. If you're looking to make lifetime friends and culturally enrich your life then Wingate University is the perfect college for you.

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

It is very simple. nobody knows at eighteen years old what they want in life, who they are, or where they will be in four years. the solution to picking the right college is to visit them and see which atmosphere feels most comfortable. truthfully tho there is no real wrong decision. for the majority of college students class room size and appartment living pale in comparison to the friends you make and the experiences you will have. those can and will happen anywhere

What kind of person should attend this school?

athletes should consider this school strongly, over one third of the student body is made up of athletes, male and female. it also helps to come from a family to has the financial meens to help you succeed at a univeristy which will cost over 30,000 dollars a year. People who are focused on college for the right reasons and are genuinley interested in exploring new opportunities and avenues for success will enjoy this school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

anybody looking to go wild in college should go elsewhere. It is a dry campus, thus you will not find many rave parties here. To a certain extent this school is an extension of highschool. small classrooms and a student body under two thousand people creates a very small sheltered environment. This is also a baptist university and although the school is very open to different beliefs and tolerant of other religions (liberal arts school come on) it is still a traditional southern univeristy.
