    Do your homework,before you commit. You want to go into this decision knowing everything you can,that way you wont feel blindsided.

    Make sure you come prepared for the weather. If you are from the south or west coast of the United States, get ready for a very cold fall, winter, and spring. It can snow one day, and be hot the next. Stay on top of your professors and grades. Make sure you don't miss lectures. Don't miss class, even if you are sick. You have to be on your death bed and only have one week left to live, if you are going to miss class. If it's not written, don't believe it. If someone tells you something, make sure you get it in writing.

    Know how to budget your money!!! Although clubbing seems fun $25 a week isn't cheap and trips to Chipotle can often become pricey as well. Understand that you are in a city and Howard is an open campus- just because you are on campus does not mean you can allow your guard down, every year students under estimate the danger of living in a city and end up in bad situations. ALWAYS USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM, it's recommended for a reason. Expand your horizons!- Aim to try something new whether it's taking a Tae Quon Do class, attending an open mic night, or trying a new food, Howard is all about trying new things and understanding what you enjoy!

    Keep a copy of all documents. If you can, take math at a different university and transfer the credits. Apply for financial aid a soon as possible.
