    Check out the campus before enrolling, make sure its were you want to go. They will tell you its not but its still a very expensive campus and you could get much more somewhere else for the price you pay.

    I reccomend that students do not take multiple classes at once that require multiple essays to be written. It becomes very hard to finish 3 or 4 6-8 page essays in a week. Also college becomes much more enjoyable when you make friends early on.

    For incoming students I would suggest getting involved in as many of our clubs as you can. The campus has a lot to offer and gives you and exceptional amount of room to grow not only educationally, but also as a person. I would also suggest living in the apartment buildings that are provided, because it allows you to be even more involved with the people on campus.
