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

Don't sweat the small things. Chances are, you will end up being happy at whatever school you decide to attend. Transfer is always an option if it doesn't work out. Main things to know for yourself are class size-because that will affect how you learn, and also keep in mind an idea of the school size. Less students means smaller classes, and a more personal connection with professors. People tend to emphasize alot on SAT scores, but those are just arbitrary lines to draw for application purposes. They are not true indicators of college success. Good luck!

Transitioning to college life may be difficult at first, but it just takes a short time until you adjust. There are many benfits of a college degree and going through the college process. Never forget why you are doing this. Never lose sight of your goals and dreams! College is a long and difficult path but that should not discourage you. It should empower you. Imagine yourself successful in your career- it should inspire you to keep going. College also teaches you more than academic knowledge. It teaches you how to be an independent, responsible part of society. It's the first step into the "real world", so try your best to start out on the right foot! Make sure you don't lose sight of who you are, who you want to be, and what you are all about. You are unique and special! Be the best you you can be! Remember to enjoy yourself- these are the best years of your life.. Just don't get carries away! Good luck!

Describe the students at your school.

They are friendly, most have similar interstest since this is a small predominantly jewish college, and everyone seems to be willing to help each other out in every class, no one denies you help if you ask them, its a very comforting feeling that you can rely on anyone you dont know.

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

I would insist to myself to take more AP courses, and take my english writing classes more seriously. College for me is difficult because I simply did not build for myself a strong education in highschool, so dont make the same mistake I did. College work isn't really so difficult, It's more time consuming. There is a lot of great things to enjoy and experience and learn in college if you focus on basic skills now and build a strong foundation in writing you will be able to do your work so much more effeciently. Had I learned how to write well, so much of my college work would be done in half the time, and I would be able to participate in more extra cirricular activites and programs that would be so beneficial to my general education. Take AP courses if you feel you can handle the load, because when you get to college you may want to take advantage of so many interesting elective classes that having some required courses out of the way will make it easier for you to handle taking those additional classes. GOOD LUCK!

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

Registrar, they are so difficult to deal with, every single deans office is in a different buidling and you need their signiture for the registrar to do anything for you. So first you go to registrar, they send you to a dean, you wait, and they dont have specific hours so you may never get them and by the time you do you miss the deadline the registrar gave to you. No one there is organized and it really makes registering for classes an unpleasent experience.

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

University is the consummate environment. It is in this environment that students establish and lay the foundations for their nascent characters. By opening themselves to diverse cultures and innovative modes of thought, and involving themselves in new activities, students not only reaffirm their old passions, but also inevitably fashion promising new ones. Each individual in University recognizes what makes him tick, what his intrinsic me truly is. Every student should sincerely aspire to be one such fortunate individual.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who cannot deal with a tough schedule and who is not Jewish.

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

Choosing a college is about YOU - the student. It's not a time to please someone else. Make a list of characteristics that YOU think are important in a prospective college. Research your options carefully to determine which college offers the best environment for YOU, YOUR academic goals, YOUR social dreams. Remember that each person is a unique individual. You don't have to choose the same college as your older sibling or parent. You're not them. You are you. If you want to succeed in college, you must choose a school that caters to YOUR wants and needs - not to someone else's.

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

In order to find the right college, students and parents should do a lot of research about schools they are interested in. They should consider size of the university, extra-curricular activities available, location, price, class-room size and types of vocations the school is known to be geared towards. Sometimes the best way to gauge whether or not a college is right for you is to visit it. That way you get a real sense of what the university and the students who attend it are like. The best way to make the most out of the college experience is to take advantage of the opportunities in research and extra-curricular activities that you are interested in. It is also important to try new activities to expand your horizons. A good balance between social life and school work is also a major part of maximizing the college experience.

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

The worst thing about my school is that I feel like there is not enough greenery or nature surrounding the area and sometimes it is difficult to be surrounded only by buildings of New York City.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Somebody who does not like an all girls environment should not attend this school.

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

In terms of finding the right college, I would strongly urge students to spend a day or more visiting the colleges they are considering. There's no better way of getting a feel for a college than by actually interacting with students, sitting in on classes, and speaking to professors. In addition, I believe that college rankings shouldn't be your only guide. Instead, you should find a college that fits you and your individual desires, regardless of its numerical ranking. I also believe that in order to make the most out of the college experience, students must learn to balance classwork and a social life. Having one without that other will make for a dismal four years. It is important for work to be done on time, and to schedule time to study for exams, but all work and no play makes John Q. Student a dull boy. There are so many extra-curricular activities to take part in, and so many recreational pursuits both on and off campus that, far from detracting from academic success, can actually serve to enrich the college experience and revitalize students in order to help them succeed.

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

The cost of tuition - we pay Ivy League prices, but don't receive an Ivy League education.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A Jewish person who is unafraid of a heavy courseload due to the dual curriculum.
