    Get your application in early because the earlier you get accepted, the sooner you can work on financial aid. Make connections early! Get to know your professors and make sure you're talking to people of importance (like financial aid, student services, etc). Professors are a great networking tool, as well as great for recommendations later on. As for classes, just go and do the work. You're in college now, and professors expect you to do the work and come to class. Again, think recommendations and connections! You're only allowed so many absences, too, so keep that in mind. Don't procrastinate on attending your Soundings events (a course that requires you to go to various events). There will be plenty to go to, and they're usually pretty great! Get involved on campus when you can! Don't think you need to get involved in everything all at one time. You'll be overwhelmed at first because it's an adjustment coming to college period. Get plenty of sleep, too! You'll regret it later if you don't. Take the Quantitative Reasoning test early to get a feel for it because you may have to take it more than once, and you need it to graduate! If you have questions, don't be afraid to ask. Also, if you qualify for work study (again, dealing with financial aid the earlier the better), ask all around campus about positions. They're kind of hard to come by, but if you ask early enough, you'll be fine! Overall, have fun and smile because you made it to college!

    Castleton tries to sell itself too much. if you take a tour, the tour guide, like any college university, will try to sell you only the good aspects of Castleton. i employ you, that if you are thinking of coming to Castleton, you make your own judgments and observations, but at the same time, if you like what you see, and you are able to afford it comfortably, then you should give it the benefit of the doubt, but also realize that college is supposed to be the best years of your life and what you want out of the a college.

    Students should be prepared to be able to connect with their teachers outside of the classroom in order to succeed. Many classes will not go over all of the course material that you may need to know. You are expected to know a great deal more about each subject. The material may be reviewed, but it will not make a standing impression on one's memory, but all of the professors are more than happy to review outside of lecture. Get involved with the community and join a club. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. The people there will become some of your best friends and you can truly make a difference.
