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

The advice that I would give to a student about finding the right college is to never give up. There are so many colleges that offer many different opportunities and programs. Some students may want to give up after applying to various colleges and universities without acceptance or that have not found a college to commit to. If the student remains positive and continues to strive for excellence, the "perfect fit" college will happen with time and patience! Once attending the desired college it is vital that the student persevere through the entire college experience. Times will be hard but with hard work the benefits that you reap will be so rewarding. It is also important that prospective college students start looking early. The earlier the process starts the better the results. The key is to know what you want to do in life and look for colleges that cater to the needs of your future. Here at Winston-Salem State University we "Enter to learn and depart to serve". I believe that all students enter their place of higher education, to learn and expect to depart and serve.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The person should also like and do well in small classes and be open and ready for an endearing relationship with the faculty and staff here at WSSU.

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

My advice to parents and students is to do as much research as humanly possible of the schools you are interested in. Come up with a plan A, B, and C as far as the schools you like and start applying. A lot of young students take for granted their education when someone else is paying for it. I am an adult student attending college and i take it more serious than a lot of other students. My advice to students would be to treat college like a job and take it serious. You can still have fun while there but use your time wisely. These four years come before you know it. Make the most of your college experience by making yourself available for every beneficial opportunity that comes your way.

That it's the only school i would consider to anybody that is thinking about college.

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

Don't judge a college by it's pictures!!!!!!!!!!! Know what you want in a college. All colleges are about money but you want to pick the college to fit your needs and not theirs. And just because you didn't get accepted doesn't mean you can't go to college it simply means that you are better at another college.

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

What is unique about my school compared to other schools as that it holds a tradition. The tradition is that it its one of the HBCU (Histiorically Black College or University) and in the sport of cheerleading. Winston-Salem State University is known for having one of the best cheerleading squads between the HBCU's.

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

Advice that I would give parents and students about finding the right collage and making the most of the college experince is when finding a college to attend always think of the diversity of students, how organized and the attitudes of the adminstators, the professors, the cost of the school, the condition of dorms, and never let the children go to a school thats in your hometown. When thinking of a college of diversity it give college students to learn more about different culturals and how to adopt to differnt enthic groups. The office should be organized, have good serivce to college students, and hlep them to get things done quick and easy. Make sure professors can teach to your learning style of how you learn in the classroom and what techniques well help you succeed in the classroom. Condition of dorms should include safety such as door locks should work properly or windows should be in a good condition to where they will not be robberys. Also chose a school that is at least 40 to an hour away from home if chosen to stay close to home so they learn not to be depentent on parents.

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

What I wish I would have known before I came to Winston-Salem State University is that some of the offices there give students the complete run around for no reason when the task is usually very simple. Also on how sometimes they are not on time with things and some of the workers in the office dont do well with frustration, sometimes have bad attitudes.

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

Finding the right college is very important because most likely you will be at that university for four years, a lot of freshman drop out after the first semester because they realize that the college they chose was not right for them.

What's unique about your campus?

The education department and the chill development center because it is enrichment for the lives of young children.

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

The advice I would give to all students/parents about finding the right college, don't pick a school because of its popularity or its size. Do research about the institution and make sure this institute is right for you. Find out if this school is prominant in your major, find out what percentage of its students received jobs after graduation, how long did it take them to become employed after graduating. Check to see how helpful their career service is and does this institute sit well with different companies in the community. Then find out if the students are friendly and inviting, and are the professors compassionate and willing to give you 100%. To make the most of your college experience I would have to say get involved, meet new people. Join some of the organizations on campus, participate in the activites, volunteer for school functionings. Also build a relationship with your professors, let them get to know who you are. Visit them during office hours, ask questions, and participate in class. Another way of making the most of your college experience is to remember you are paying for this education so study and use the school resources.

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

The worst thing about Winston Salem State is our parking. There is no parking for students on campus. The school is constantly towing students vehicles and giving out tickets but yet there is no where for us to park. They opened up a new parking lot for us this year but the problem is its 2-3miles down the road. So you cant walk to class from the parking lot so you have to wait on the shuttle which is always late and full.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I feel if you are a motivated person looking to learn and begin a career after college this is the perfect institute. WSSU has a great career services and are always hosting job fairs. If you are looking for a smaller institute with smaller classes, in which you can get one on one time with your professor Winston Salem State would be a great choice. Also if you are looking to become more involved with your institute because its a smaller college makes it a lot easier to become involved and meet new people.

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

Starting your college search early key and essential in selecting the right school. Take advantage of high school workshops and campus visits when offered, and the earlier the better. This will assist in the process of selecting the schools that you really love and eliminating the schools that you thought you would like, but upon visiting realizing the school really isn't for you. Once you've completed the search process it definately makes life a lot easier for the selection process, freeing up time for the search of college money!! School is very expensive especially if attending out of state, therefore ensuring that your focus and dedication are there prior to attending is another definate must in order to make the most of the college experience.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are not interested in school at all then you shouldn't attend this school. School is very expensive and rather than waste money wait until you are absolutely mentally ready to dive into the world of acadamia.

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

The most important thing of any college experience in my opinion is to not waste any money or future career opportunities. In other words, there are too many people in the world who would like to attend college, but do not have accessible funds to do so. Take your college seriously. Encourage your children to go to ALL of their classes and soak up as much knowledge as they possibly can! This world is nothing but a competition, neck to neck, and there is always going to be someone who has one more thing to offer, or is better at a skill than you....LEARN TO NEVER SETTLE FOR AVERAGE!!! someone great once told me "DONT JUST BE GOOD..BE GREAT!!!"

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that should attend Winston-Salem State University is one that is ready to gain a valuable education and learning experience and one who is ready to gain the HBCU college experience.

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

We're an HBCU and the majority of our students are on the Dean's List
