a current student here
For those that want to go here, and live on campus, I tell you, bring as much as you can from home so that you do not have to constantly buy things from the school or local stores. Save money before the semester starts in case financial aid doesn't go through completely or in the very least to pay for things like phone bills and laundry. Jobs in town are hard to come by, especially in the Spring semester when everyone has landed any possible job available. If you live on campus, try to live in the dorms so that you are closer to the Cafeteria, since the walk from the campus apartments is sometimes dreadful in the heat or snow. That being said, bring cleaning supplies or at least sanitizer since the bathrooms are old and pretty gross looking. If you live in the dorms, at least buy a pair of flip flops since the dorm bathrooms have gross floors in the older buildings. Invest in a bike! Use the library as much as possible since you have printing money on your student ID which is almost impossible to use up in one semester. Join at least one club so that you can meet a few people.
