    Make sure you go to every class, there is always important information. Also, do all your readings even if the teacher did not assign any.

    Make sure to check a website like Rate My Professor before signing up for any classes, and see if you'll like that class or not; you don't want to be stuck with a class you don't like. Also, apply for as many scholarships as possible, because this school has many that you may be eligible for. Another tip is to make use of the TLC, the Tutor Learning Center, which is paid for as part of your student fees. This center located in Houston Hall provides free tutoring from a peer that has taken the class you need help with and has either earned an A or B in the class.

    Note this is for the MONTROSE SATELLITE CAMPUS, only some comments are applicable to the main campus. I doubt anybody outside Montrose or nearby towns is interested in attending the school. However, assuming you are, or you're a Montrose resident considering CMU Montrose, keep this in mind: CMU Montrose is not a normal college. Technically, it isn't a community college--you get credits the same as if you were attending the main campus--but you get smaller class sizes, a more flexible and personal atmosphere, and a surprisingly competent team of professors (the people teaching at CMU Montrose are there because they love to teach--it's hard to find a bad course!). You can do things at the Montrose campus that are completely impossible elsewhere. It's perfectly reasonable to talk with most professors directly after class for an extended period of time without much fear of being blown off, and it's easy to approach and make friends with any of the staff--from a new teacher to the campus head--if you're willing to speak up a bit. You can also expect to finagle without disrupting schedules or receiving backlash. My physics teacher, for example, let us decide if we wanted to have a midterm before or after our Thanksgiving break. Take advantage of these peculiarities! There aren't many other college level institutions with the freedom that CMU Montrose provides you, and it gives you some really awesome opportunities to connect with experienced professionals, experiment with study methods, test out prospective majors, and generally learn about what it's like to be in college, all while in an environment that boarders on the personal and has manageable bills. If you're going to CMU Montrose for the reason that most students do--because it's cheap and nearby--don't throw away a potentially wonderful experience. Take advantage of all the unique opportunities such a small, easy going place has to offer. A few other things: Don't expect the most students to be the average college student. A good portion of them are going to Montrose exclusively for nursing classes, many are older, and the vast majority have busy lives outside of class. You won't find much of a normal student body here, so expect your time studying to be on your own, or be prepared to conform to some very strange schedules. Also, don't hesitate to access the Montrose Library. They're in the same building, after all. The research librarians there are highly efficient and the library has won regional and national awards for excellence--you can't go wrong with it.
