    Definitely try to stay a weekend here before you fully commit. There is a different feeling of actually staying on campus, rather than taking a tour and you would be surprise at how much you learn when you actually stay for a couple days and get a sense of the people and the area.

    I would advise prospective students to get a feel for campus through the official visits that the university offers, as well as to take tours on their own time throughout the various seasons of the year. Walking through campus in the fall is far different than walking through it in the winter.

    Don't fall behind early in your classes. You may be able to get away with it freshman year but eventually you will hit classes that you will not be able to catch up and your GPA will suffer. Get involved. College isn't fun sitting in your dorm room.
