What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Oh, my. There's so much I'd like to say to upcoming students. First, I was surprised at how much stuff is online. Not only for your online courses, and you'll probably end up taking a few, but math. I think pretty much all math classes use math labs plus, which is helpful but also a pain in the bottom. So, be expecting to use the Internet, and if you're not too computer savvy, now's the time to work on that. In all seriousness, go to class. Your professors might not care, but you will when you fail your class. One of the things I learned right off the bat was USE YOUR PROFESSORS! They really do want to help you. Go see them in their office. Talk to them after class. Ask your english professor to read over your essay and see if he/she has any suggestions. Don't be shy, professors are one of the best resources college has to offer. Speaking of resources, you'll probably be spending a lot of time in the library....please don't be one of those annoying people who talk on the third floor where you're supposed to be quiet. That is all.

Work within your limits and know your limits.

Get as close with your professors as possible, that's always helpful in the long run. Make sure to get involved with the activities around the school. Don't get anything over a fifteen-meal meal plan: the food isn't fantastic, so its best to save your money in the Nickel, Ciabatta's, or wherever else you could eat. Also: get a car or get a friend with a car, because there isn't too much to do in the actual city of Fairmont on weekends. The surrounding areas are where you really want to go. Make friends with the upperclassmen because they can be a lot of help in all sorts of areas.

Tips: -Contact your advisor early and often. You'll want to get your schedule done as soon as you can so you have the best chance of getting the classes you need.
- If you advisor won't answer you then contact the Student Registrar and they'll find you someone more willing to help you.
