    Taking a tour is a great idea, considering the size of the campus. I would do research on your major and the department before attending, to make sure that you will fit right in once you begin attending. The major thing is to come here with an open mind; not everyone at the school is taking part in Greek life and going out to parties. There are a variety of clubs and organizations to get involved with, or you can simply keep to yourself and pursue your education. The school gives you all these options, without any pressure.

    Apply early! SDSU is popular for good reason. Make sure you have all of your prerequisites ready to go before you apply; you don't want to pay the application fee and be rejected for a missing class. When you are admitted, take advantage of every opportunity. Get involved on campus, join clubs, go to events. The people you meet are going to be your network once you graduate.
