    The financial aid office is packed during the first three or so weeks. Lines stretch to downstairs so get your financial aid information in order early. If you don't like one computer lab, there are plenty of others which you can use. Don't go crazy with the printing since there is a print quota. Communication is key; if there's something concerning you about financial aid, for instance, the people in the office are quite helpful. Make sure you go to them for help.

    If you are planning to be a full-time student I hope you have insurance or you'll have to add (currently) $750 a semester to your tuition to be insured by aetna who is partnered with the school. Get your financial aid done WAY BEFORE the first week of the semester. Unless, you want to pull a ticket from the dispenser (just like the one at your local deli) to wait for an hour or two to get your paperwork looked at. I think the activity hour is on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-4 pm. That is when most extracurricular activities meet. So if you want to be involved, take that into consideration when registering for classes.
