    Make sure Purdue (or any college for that matter) is the place you want to go. If you visit campus and it doesn't feel right, its not the place for you. Find the college that makes you feel at home (or feels right) the second you step on campus. It'll make a difference in the long run. Once you're on campus, get to know people! Having a support system is key to succeeding in college. Your RA is there to help you and give you advice when you need it, and your friends are there to support you and help you unwind. Find the people who make a difference in your life and stick with them.

    Study hard. It may be tempting to hit the bars and party Thursday-Saturday, but I assure you it is not worth it. Purdue has great libraries and study centers. Take advantage of the resources offered to students at Purdue. Make good impressions in all of your class. Go to class and sit near the front if that is what it takes to pay attention. It is a difficult school academically speaking, but you will be proud of yourself when you graduate from such a prestigious school.

    Do your research! Can you picture yourself walking to class and being happy here?Does the school offer what you are looking for (classes, clubs, sports, etc)? Does the school have multiple choices for you if you decide to change your major? At Purdue, schedule an appointment with your recruiter, take a tour, and learn as much as you can to help aide your decision. As a student ambassador that assists in recruiting science students, I can say that sometimes these visits can make it or break it when choosing your school. Going to the school's social media sites can help you learn more about recent events happening around campus.
