    1. Visit the campus and take one of the tours to get familiar with the environment. 2. Make sure you have at least a 3.5 GPA if you apply. 3. Live on campus if possible--the benefits you will reap are so worth it. 4. Get involved with a campus organization to meet friends and the staff. 5. Go to the football and baseball games! 6. Parking is a controversial issue on campus. Make sure to arrive on campus before 9 a.m. to find a parking spot, or, if you have afternoon classes after 12:30. They say arrive an hour or so before your first class depending on your class time. 7. Take advantage of everything FAU has to offer and enjoy your time here!

    Which FAU campus you attend will have a major impact on what kind of experience you will have. Boca, Jupiter and Davie each have their own specific atmosphere, requirements, and pros and cons in general so choose this carefully. I have attended all three campuses and I will be reviewing them separately because of this. To be honest the Jupiter campus was my worst FAU experience. I felt much happier and comfortable attending classes in Boca and Davie.

    Get involved early, reach out to faculty in your academic departments about opportunities/experiences to make you more marketable on top of good grades. Some of the class sizes are very large 200-300 lecture halls, study information has you get it and be proactive.

    Whether you're a freshman or a transfer student, it's always helpful to carry a map around with you or have the FAU Campus Map app on hand as it can be a little confusing during your first couple of days on campus.
