What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
Prospective students if you are not sure what you are looking for but know that you want to find people that care for you and will help you make college an easy transition this is it. Friends are made with a quick flip of the wrist playing Frisbee. Its amazing how friendships are made and how amazing they become. These are definitely friends for life, and don’t be afraid going to school where you don’t know anyone, after a few days it will seem like you have known your new friends forever.
Heather from South St Paul, MN
Do your homework well in advance. Get your papers reviewed by peers and professors. Get a good amount of sleep, and maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Make friends and have some fun in college. If you are unsure what you want to study, talk to a professor or a career counselor for help.
Christian from Berwyn, IL
Some tips for future students would be to get involved!! There is always so much to do so jump in and have fun! Also make sure to manage your time well. Writing papers until all hours of the night is no fun! So say goodbye to your friends and get to work.
Alysia from Alsip, IL
Be cheerful, be positive, talk to the pastor on campus, make friends, and ignore those who do not mean any good to you. Most of all though, get involved.
Justin from Aurora, IL
Get a transit card and put money on it so on the weekend you can go into the city or if its cold and you do not feel like walking all the way to the store you can catch a ride. Go to chapel, its everyday at 11am. Go to prayer and praise on sunday nights. It is time to worship God and during the prayer time you can get to know people you didn't know before. Play frisbee in the triangle others will join you and you will make new friends. Also make sure to study. Use the library or perhaps sit in the art gallery and study.
Melissa from Belleville, IL
