    Don't be afraid of the cold. No matter what anyone tells you, I PROMISE it's not that bad! Have or be ready to adopt a winter habit. Even though the winter is not too bad, it is pretty long. You might get bored if you don't ski, hike, or at least make a snowman every once and while. Get to know your professors. As a small community, this is the perfect setting to get really close to some smart individuals! Take advantage of the wealth of knowledge that your professors have to offer, and start making solid connections that will help you in your future. Men -- don't cross PSC off your list just because some guy told you there are no pretty women here, that they're all masculine and ugly. That is sooo not true, and whoever told you that probably came here in 1970 or didn't treat women nice enough to get one. There are plenty of beautiful -- and smart! -- women here (just as a side note).

    Bring warm clothes and a willingness to work your butt of to get to the top. The temperature during the winter can get to thirty below easily, and while you're snowed in, you might as well work on acing all your classes! Also, make friends with the baking students and they will feed you very well.

    Make sure you like being in the middle of no where. The closest town is 15 minutes away. There are plenty of activities to do around campus, but it is good to get away once and a while.
