    Come here if you want a truly focused academic setting. There is a party side to western but it is easily avoided. ALSO, be sure to apply to the honors college! The perks are better dorms, early registration, and even more major opportunities.

    Don't bring alot with you to campus. Also, join alot of clubs and pick some new activities to try! Do all your school work during the week and make sure you remember to be safe and have fun!

    Make sure you learn tutoring hours and don't overload your self if your a new student to this school. Staying on campus would be a much better option as well due to inclement weather in the early spring semester.

    Looking for the bustle of city life, this place isn't for you. But, if you're looking for adventure and education, this is your place. Pack hiking boots and a rain coat.

    There are a lot more dining choices than some of the larger North Carolina universities. It's best to meet the people on you're floor of you're dorm asap because most of the time they're pretty awesome and you don't actually know it until the end of the semester when it's almost time to go home.
