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

Compared to other schools that I have considered, Xavier University of Louisiana is a private insituition with an acceptable student to teacher ratio. It is very small compared to other universities, such as the University of South Alabama, Auburn University, and the University of Alabama. Comparing my choices, Xavier University of Louisiana is the best choice for my field of study. The university has a pharmacy program that could help me become a successful pharmacist in less than eight years.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The cost of attending Xavier University of Louisiana is expensive, so someone who is not willing to pay the high amount should not attend. Xavier is a Catholic institution, so if a person feels as if they are going against their belief, they should not attend.

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

My advice to myself as a high school senior would consist of three things. First, keep an open mind when deciding your major. As a Senior I always thought that biology would be the major that only interests me, however once taking elective classes that did not pertain to my major, I realized that minoring or even switching my major is something I am definitely considering. Second would be to participate in clubs that are completely different from the ones you choose in highschool. Although in highschool, I was active in the student body, I mainly had friends to rely on to keep me company or influence me to join their club. But once in college, you don't have that same group of friends to do that with, so join clubs that interest you and even one or two that you normally would not in high school. Its a great ice breaker and a chance to meet new people. And lastly, priorize and use time management skills. College is the worst place to have the case of procrasination as I did. The stress alone can affect your mood, performance on test, and your overall attitdude. Manage your time wisely.

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

The culture of New Orleans. In New Orleans, it seems that having fun and celebrating as much as possible is the local's mentality. As a first time student, there is definitely many things to do and sightsee in the city-from the French Quarter to Metarie, you can never be bored.

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

Although you are very excited to leave Texas, don't be too eager and take things slow and don't get too crazy although you won't. The school is very challenging and you need to take it serious or you shall fail. But, you are young and think you know everything which is common but you know nothing, so behave yourself. Also, boys are idiots and if they don't like you don't fret. You is fine, you is smart, and you is important.

What's unique about your campus?

It is the only private Catholic HBCU in the nation which makes it special and the city its located suppliments the fact that the campus is boring.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone that is not serious about their academic prosperity it is a dry smoke free campus and someone who cannot afford to live off campus will probably not like the school also they need to be able to handle a lot of work.

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

If I could go back in time to talk to myself in high school, there would be so much discussion and advice. First, I would talk about the importance of applying for scholarships early. Financing a college education is so costly in today's economy with schools being so frugal. Next, I would tell my former self to make more campus college tours to get a better perspective on the university. This probably would of changed my current college career plans. I would probably not be attending my current institution although I love it now. Next, I would tell my former self to examine people carefully. In life, there are acquaintances and friends. In college, many are acquaintances due to networking around campus. Therefore, it is best to be with people that support my interests. There is a fine line between a friendship and a networking opportunity. Finally, I would tell myself to save more money and not spend it unwisely. In college, unexpected costs like books and fees happen quickly. College is an amazing journey to take but difficult to survive without thinking wisely.

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

I wish that I would of known more about financial aid at this school. It is so difficult to get accurate information from them without getting the run around.

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

I feel like this school is too small and not open-minded to new ideas. I feel like this school needs to expand more. Also, I would like administration to be more open to student ideas for change.

Dear Old Self, Hey man its me Josh in the future. Im in college sitting here writing you this letter because we have a few things to discuss. Stay focused man, work hard in those AP classes because it will prepare you for college. Josh make sure you go to class and study; these girls and your friends will be there in the long run. Take an oppurutinty to apply for sholarships so you can make it easier on your parents because the money is out there. Dont wait until the last minute to study for test Josh because it wont help you in the long run. Making notecards for yourself does actually help. Im not saying be so school driven that you dont have fun in high school. By all means have fun but make sure you do things in moderation kid. Take care of the family and help out mom with your sisters and brother as much as you can. Most importantly in life yo will see obstacles thrown your way but Never, Never let anyone tell you you cant do something. Phillipians 4:13 carry it with you, Sincerely, Future you

I feel that the worse thing at my school is the lack of freedom that we have. I feel this way because we are all supposed to be adults yet they dont treat us as such.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who is focused ans well driven and willing to do hard work should attend this institution

Elizabeth, there is so much you need to know before you go to college. Here are a few important tips to ease your transition from high school to college. Make sure you have a steady sleeping schedule. You need to get at least seven hours of sleep every night, or you will regret it during class the next day. Save as much money as you can. College tuition is expensive, and textbooks and supplies make attending college almost impossible. Take very thorough notes. If your professor allows you, record his or her lectures and take even more notes when you get home. Also, read the textbook or assignment before you go to class so that you understand what your professor is lecturing about during class. Either form study groups with quiet, focused individuals, or don’t form them at all. If you make study groups with your close friends you’ll just end up talking the whole time, and you won’t get any actual work done. Don’t procrastinate; do your homework as soon as you get it, otherwise you won’t end up getting everything done in time and your work won’t be good quality.

What's unique about your campus?

We have free tutoring centers for biology, chemistry, math, and a writing lab. We have drills for chemistry to help us learn.

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

If I knew then what I knew now, I would have told myself to stay focused no matter what distractions may have come in my way. I would have told myself that although I will have to sacrifice somethings such as a social life and my time, in the end it would pay off. However, if I knew my brother would be murdered my junior year of college, I may not have come all the way to New Orleans from Buffalo, NY. However, If I knew then what I knew now, I would appreciate those in my life that I love and my time a lot more than I have in the past. I would also have been better equipped myself with better time management skills. That is essential in college.

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

The course work is hard but, I am confident that I will find a great job afterwards.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Xavier is best known for leading the nation in sending more African Americans to medical school then any other college or university in the United States.

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

Xavier was the private college and only HBCU I choose to apply to.

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

I would have told myself to research the school myself. I did not conduct any research at all when making my decisions on coming to Xavier. I would also tell myself to talk to the student you left the school and what was their rreason for leaving. Last thing I would have done differently is I would have went to visit the campus first and also the city I will be living in.

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

Xavier University has a very diverse faculty and staff that are very helpful to students academically and are willing to help you pursue your goal whenever possible.

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

Once I go back in time to talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself that there is nothing to worry about. I will tell myself that it is everything that I had imagined. The stress and the hard work to get to the top is all there. I would also tell myself not to worry if I have a hard time making friends because by the time I hang out with a few people, I will gradually be able to make friends with them. It may take some time at first, but it will be worth it in the end because they are the ones who help you get by at school. Another piece of advice I would tell myself is to practice planning out my day so that once I'm in college, I would be able to follow that plan easily and not get distracted. Also, I would tell myself to lay low on the unhealthy foods as I go through school because it's going backfire in a few years.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is how there are a lot of people attenting the school to pursue the same goal. This creates a big competition within the students, but this gives the students motivation to study hard in order to get where they want.
