Those of us who are college veterans will never forget our freshman year at college. Some of us may like to forget our freshman year, but in general it is a time filled with anticipation, some anxiety, and wonderful discoveries.
College is a lot different than high school. You may decide to commute from your home to a local campus. Your freshman experience will definitely make an impression on you. Without doubt, though, the most dramatic freshman year is for those living away from home. What can you expect as you head off into the wonderful world of higher education?
Review Missouri University of Science & Technology
I really enjoy the other students at the school, they are so helpful when it comes to classes and school work. Campus resources are as helpful as the professor makes and if classes are hard which 98% of them are, the majority of the time the programs designed to help with the school work outside of the class will be difficult to understand and concepts will Be hard to grasp. Mostly things like that depends on the professor whose teaching the class.
I recommend taking your pre-reqs at a community college or somewhere similair before going there for a mahor, you will a much easier and less stressful time doing that than going there for 4 -5 years.
Things I do like about the school, the choices of dormitory, they have really nice facilities and you can make really good friends. I like that the town the school is located in, it is small but it basically has everything you'll need and the people in the town are so friendly.
I transferred from a community college with an associate's degree last year, and even though most of my instructors seemed down to earth and understanding of the challenges of learning the new coursework my friends and I have embarked on, there have been a few instructors that I have learned to steer clear of to keep my GPA and sanity from going out the window. If you are thinking about attending this school, keep two things in mind - it will push you to the very limits of what you think you can do, and make friends with those who've been there a few years - they know which instructors care about how you understand their courses, and which ones are notorious for destroying the GPAs of entire class sections.
