    Choose your major wisely, something worthwhile that will pay well after graduation, and doesn't have an overly competitive job market. Think twice before pursuing the major that makes you happy, at the end of the day that won't pay your loans or the bills.

    Come tour the campus; once you see Mount St. James at any time of year, you will fall in love. Also, make sure you schedule an interview, it sets you apart and allows the admissions staff to get to know you on a personal level. Since the admission process is unlike other schools where the whole team decides a students admission, knowing one person in the room can make a huge difference.

    It's true, GPA isn't everything, but Holy Cross is looking for the best and brightest so keep your grades up and work hard to be well-rounded. Get involved in your high school, join some clubs, get into student government, volunteer your time, and never stop expanding your horizons. The more experience you bring the table the better. Be prepared to be challenged and anticipate spending some serious time in your studies. You can't just skate by. Holy Cross expects you to actively participate in your classes, so pursue what you're passionate about! And don't be afraid to leave your dorm! You should get involved as much as you can handle but be sure to budget your time wisely and save some room for sleep! There's a lot to do here and plenty of opportunities for fun and excitement.

    Bring lots of ramen, because the dining hall doesn't have the best options. Get ready to do a lot of walking up and down hills and stairs! Girls, don't even both bringing heels to go out in. Be open to everything and go to all the events! So much free stuff!
