    Visit the campus before you attend. Shaw has almost no facilities. The gym is small, there's no football field, and the workout room is only for athletes. There's a lot of people at Shaw who aren't there for the right reasons, therefore it's very easy to get distracted. The school isn't dangerous at all. Like any other school it has it's occasional fights, but there's no general violence.

    It's not a bad school but don't just come here because your GPA wasn't the best in high school. College is for students who really want to make the effort to do well. You have to put your best foot forward to maintain a 3.0+.

    Make sure you stay focused and don't get caught up in partying all the time. Also if you need help don't be afraid to talk to your teachers, because you will fall behind if you don't stay on top of your studies.
