I'm a first year here and it has been great so far. I'm part of the soccer team and although practice is extremely intense, the students here make you feel welcome. The orientation programs are helpful towards the schools mission and what to expect on the path of success.
Tips for prospective students
Bring coats, snow boots, and layer it up! Hancock, where Finlandia University is located, was crowned the 3rd snowiest city in America so stay warm! Also, there is a great support group for students that are in sports or that need it in general, overall staff here is there to help you!
Academic Rigor
I haven't started classes, but I can already feel the intensity at this school. The orientation programs jump at you with lots of information that you should remember. My brother also attends this school and he said depending on the courses you take you can tell if it is rigorous or not. The most popular majors here are Psychology and Criminal Justice. I am excited to take these courses!
Dorm Life
I love my dorm. It is pretty spacious. My roommate is also pretty interesting and the people here are spontaneous and fun to be around with. My dorm, I feel like is pretty awesome because my roommate and I have our own bathroom and our own shower opposed to other schools where they have to share one restroom with a multitude of people. I have my own desk with light and a nice view of the outdoor. This is probably my favorite part of the whole school.
Food and Dining
Although the options are healthy, they are delicious. They always have my favorite vegetables and salad. I also love the fact that I can mix and match my own food. I can also get the portions I want.
What to do for fun
The campus here is pretty large but there is much things to be occupied with. There are many places to meet new people, to work out. I love going to the gym and they have a gym here! I love spending my time here because I get into my own world.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Finlandia has the coldest tradition I have ever heard of. Students here jump in a lake that is ice cold! They do this every year in order to donate for charity, which is really thoughtful.
Clubs and Activities
Soccer here is the best! I love being part of Finlandia's soccer team, it honestly feels like a community and practice is intense because we are certified a NAAC school!
