    Use the rec center to your advantage. Being healthy is key to staying mentally focused in college. The rec offers lots of free classes and events to do and attend. Getting to the rec isn't the easiest thing, but making the effort you will see the benefits. Even if its getting out playing a game of pickup basketball do it!

    Gonna be honest, KU's the priciest school in the state, but it's a school that's about connections, and those come in spades. Most of the teachers and staff here have pretty legit connections to the industries they're teaching in.
