3 College Student

Scholarships: The financial aid process was kind of a hassle to me, just because I didn't receive my tax return transcript on time. I'm still trying to figure things out, and it's going okay. I guess this happens to most incoming freshmen, sense they're all new to the school and it's process.

Guys & Girls: There's a variety of cultures in my school, which makes the guys and girls very different. I love the multi cultural aspect of my school, there are so many different nationalities, which makes it very interesting and exciting to see. College is a lot like high school in the dressing range. There's a variety of different styles and groups, the only difference is that every one tends to get out of their clique and meet people who are very different from them. It's really cool to meet someone very different from you, because you learn more from them and yourself. It tends to get boring if you hang out with people just like you, sometimes you need to look outside the box. Students in this school are very accepting and united, they're very friendly and open to help anyone who needs it. If you ask me I love it because, you can just about count on anyone, which makes it easier to excel in your studies and social life.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is such a wonderful experience, theres just so much to learn and love about it. When you live on campus you feel a lot more responsible and mature, you have no one to depend on but yourself. If you don't study, no one is going to force you to, but yourself. In college you motivate and strive to do better because it's your future that you're working on. On the other hand, when students commute they don't get to experience as much, sense they still live with their parents. In a sense, it's a win loose situation for both living on campus and commuting. When students live on campus, they get a sense of maturity but they usually have to pay more tuition than commuters. Commuters get to save money but don't have freedom and maturity as if they were living on campus. It all depends on what you can afford and want to do in life.

Overall Experience: Professors in my field of study are very good and accessible. Have taken my course study courses from the first semester, so that's a plus over other schools where you have to wait til your gen eds are complete.
