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

The most important thing is to have a base of support in school. Dont room with friends because you are both growing and may grow apart, living apart will give them that space and may improve your relationship. you get out as much enjoyment from your school as the effort that you put into it. Participation in extra curricular activities will improve your overall college experience. stay on campus if you can, it will save you money on gas and rent and is more convenient overall. though college is a big deal dont stress about it, plan well and be prepared to pick up the pieces because no matter how prepared you sare college will throw you curve balls

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

Do your research on the school. Check out the background and inside information about the school. Make sure you visit the any open-houses that avaible before you enroll so that you are able to check out the scenery and how everyone interacts on campus. Ask around about the college like current students who attend. And just make sure that you know that this is the school you want to attend for the next four years because it is longer than what you think!

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

I kind of knew everything before I attended this school because I have family who attend here. They told me what to look out for and showed me around the campus, before I started like where were the common hangout spots and which buildings held what classes, etc.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anybody can attend this school. It is very diverse and open. Everyone is friendly, it really is a great school if you not a big party person but you like to have fun. This is not that small, but is not as huge so your classes are kind of all in the same area which is a good thing.

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

I would tell parents to consider what type of student their child was in high school because they are likely to maintain those same habits, therefore they need to be in an enviroment where they can suceed. Another important factor in selecting a college is surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals because college is a place where you meet life long friends and an experience that teaches you who you are as a person. Academic programs are very important but he socail life of the campus shouls be considered as well becasue if a student is consantly bored or becames depresseed it will reflect in their classroom preformance and could ultimately lead to them leaving the school. The final factor that should be considered when selecting a college is having the resources to pay for college because unexpected events will occur and money is hard to come by while in school . So students have a lot to consider but the decision should be that of the family with the student's opinion in mind above all others.

What kind of person should attend this school?

An active student but they are more concerned with acadmenics versus socailizing.

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

That I partied a lot but graduated with honors.

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

When you try to figure out what school you would like to attend after high school you have to sit down and really think about why you would like to chose this school and how their academics are and how the staff and professors are. You really have to think about it this is a school that you will attend for the next 4-10 years of your life so in choosing you ahve to make sure that this is where you want to go. When getting to college you have to life your life to it's fullest. It's alot of hard work and you really have to focus. It's okay to go out and have fun with friends but if you have work to get done make sure it's done before you go. The college experience is great but it starts with you you have to make it fun.
