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

I would recommend writting a list of qualities you would like the college you attend to have; not just the size of the school and classes. List things such as the type of social life you are comfortable with, availible transportation ( trains, busses, aiports, taxies), the setting of the school. Attend the open houses offered to get a comfortable feel with the school and its adminstration, talk with students from the school to see how they feel about the school. Then compare each school with you list to see who offers what you want. Remember its your choice.

I would like to say make sure that the college has exactly what you are looking for academically and socially. Visiit the school so you can get the feel of being there. see if this is the place that you really want to be. Check out the background history of the school. Discover the different extracurricular activities if that is of interest. Size is very important. Some students want to be at a large school and some prefer small. Check out the classroom sizes to see if it would be a comfortable learning environment for you. I feel the best way to enjoy your college years is to be involved in something. You do not have to join every organization, but find something that interests you. Do not be afraid to socialize. College allows you to meet diverse groups of people. Get to know your instructors and do not be afraid to ask them for help. Also get to know your advisors so you can stay on the correct academic path for the career you are pursuing.

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

College is what you make out of it. You don't have to go to Harvard or Yale to come out on top. College is all about getting a education and networking. You have to network everywhere you go becuase you never know who you're talking to. You could go to a small school, but, if you have a good network, after graduation you just might be sitting next to a Harvard graduate at work.

What's unique about your campus?

The small learning environment

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

My school is very goal oriented and the professors want the students to do good. The professors help the students hands on and help them stay focused.

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

The advice I would give is to find a college that dedicated to the students needs. To make your college experience worth while, get involved in academic based clubs that will help you academically. Get involved in sports to keep you active and find friends that you share the same interests with.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

EVERYONE can attend this college. Race is not an issue at this college.

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

Visit, tour, and research the opportunities of your school. Be sure to separate work and play, business and leisure to be successful and still have fun in college. Do not follow your friends to college, it is imperative to set your own standard and be trailblazer! Become involved in positive activities that promote unity, goodness, well-being, and amusement. Make the best out of each and every situation you encounter, positive or negative.

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

I wish I had known how rural the environment and how weird the people were.

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

I would advice parents and/or students to choose the right college by choosing the best one that suits them. College is a way for a student to expeirence a new beginning into adulthood. Location and price matter but if one does not like the atmosphere then the ability to like the school will become harder to enjoy.

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

I tell them that My school has the best teachers because they are so helpful.

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

As a college student I would advise parents and/ or students to find the right college by doing tours and research. It is improtant not to focus on one particular college, but have options. Be sure to consider accreditation of not only the school, but also the schools programs. Doing research can take some time, but it could also save a student from unnecessary pain. Other information to consider would be the cost, the surrounding area, and the campus life. Is it worth what you pay? Is it a safe community? Does the campus facilitate activites to inspire growth? When you step on that campus it should feel like home in your heart. With any major move in live it should give you that anxious feeling of what it has to offer and challenges that are worth a fight.

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

Good size, school spirit, highly ranked, competitive, and well known for nursing.

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

Do not go off of your parents belief of what the college will be like. Because times have changed since they have been there. The school and people may have changed by time you get there. Not only that but you may not like same things they liked at that time in there life. Basically, im saying, choose a school thats fits you and the type of person you are in order to get the best college experience.

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

The way we dont have very many good on campus activities. Because I want to get to know people and spend time with my classmates but it seems as if the only way you can do that is if you live on campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A student that is not looking for a party school and a lot of school spirit. Or a student that is primarily focused on their school work.
