    Try to get intot he Honors College. You will have to do community service and go to cultural events, but you get your own dorm room. Do not base your choices in professor by ratemyprofessor.com. A lot of times, people on the site have different opinions on professors because of THEIR work ethic. For example, someone who hates the class and professor and complains aout how hard the class is might just not go to class or spend enough time on the subject. It is okay to go to parties and drink, but do not let it get the best of you. There is a way to balance having fun and getting your work done. Don't blow off a class and never go to it just because you think you already know the subject and can study on your own. Often times there are surprise quizzes or tests and labs get moved around. You won't know about these things if you are skipping everyday. Also, it is easy to get a borderline grade such as an 89.7%. Professors WILL NOT bump you up and this could greatly effect your GPA.

    Some tips I would give would be, to be sure to get in all your assignments. Especially online ones. For me personally I tend to forget to check my email or blackboard and end up procrastinating on assignments. Not putting in all your effort can really affect your grades. Also, to go out your comfort zone and really get to know people. Rather it be going to hall games/meetings, or going to events around the school. There is always something going on and opportunities to have fun and meet new people. You never know who you might meet.

    Be ready to meet people. I would of had to try to not meet people because of the amount of student organizations there is to join.

    If you're looking for a school that has a very home-like feel, then ferris is your school. It has a great range of degrees and its a small enough campus that you feel the quaintness of the time, but at the same time you're able to get the college experience.
