College Students- What They Can Tell Us

Page history last edited by Kara McMurray 11 years, 7 months ago

 

What wisdom can our elders pass on to us through the internet? What type of Medusa professors can we avoid by forenotice? What tricks can we learn from the experienced about slipping into class after "a long night"? Not having been there yet, we must rely on the few books available, the "old college-days" stories of our parents, and, most invaluable, the true, word for word interviews from 9 College students and 4 college bound students. You won't find this kind of information on college websites, or in pamphlets, brochures, or guides, none of that glossed over crap; this is the real deal, candid stories done right.

 

 

 

Questions 

 

  

Answers 

  

 

Dorm Rooms (Residence Halls):

1.) What would you have liked to know about them?

2.) Would you recommend rooming with friend?

3.) If you have a double person room would you want a bunk bed? Or two singles?

4.) Location, which rooms are typically the best? (Corner?)

5.) Is it noisy, or  quiet? 

 

What can you tell us from experience?

Emily Easley's Answer:

1.) What do you wish you would have known, or (about) or just information you wished you could have had.

2.) Did you do things the hard way unknowingly? To find out later, if you would have looked you could have circumnavigated a certain class or professor or such?

Nice. It's nice to know what current college students think. Their opinions are more valuable than any other source, seeing as every college or university will only say good things about their institution.
