    My main tip is to constantly get out of your dorm and experience everything that ISU offers! Meet new people, join RSO's, and take time to appreciate the opportunities that you have by giving back to the community.

    Develop strong studying skills now because entry level courses for general education are dominantly 3 exams and a final exam to accumulate your grade.

    It is an amazing school for education majors! I would say there is no need to go anywhere else if that is your intended major.

If you think you want to go to ISU just go and check it out for yourself to see if you'll like it. I felt like everyone I talked to was generally welcoming.
