    It is important to attend class and develop a good communication with your professors. You should also use all resources to seek for help in any subject that you have trouble with.

    Go to the John Whittier Greenleaf Scholarship competition if you are invited!! Almost all of my tuition is covered thanks to doing this. Great backup school that become a front runner because of money. The dorms aren't as nice as the tours make them-especially for freshmen. Also the Campus Inn comes across as very accommodating to dietary restrictions like allergies, but they are not! If you have a severe allergy (such as gluten intolerance) think very hard about whether this is worth it. There have been multiple times that I haven't been able to eat.

    Make sure you take advantage of financial aid, especially in the forms of grants and scholarships, only resorting to loans if it is necessary since the interest fees can be a burden. Take care of all the enrollment steps early and plan ahead to get all your resources in order before school starts.
