Make sure this is the school for you! Schedule a visit to see the campus and get a feel of the neighborhood. If you do not think the area has enough entertainment for you, you can always drive down or hop on the bus to DTLA, Hollywood, the beach (Huntington, Laguna, Santa Monica, etc.) There are not that close, but the commute is worth it!» Read More
1. Don't ditch class. Your professors will notice. Even if it's a lecture hall class, they will notice. Many classes have an attendance policy. If you can't be bothered to show up, you may suffer academically. 2. Have fun...reasonably. If you burn yourself out partying your first year, the rest of your college experience may be unpleasant. If you don't go out at all, you may suffocate in boredom. Find that happy medium, and enjoy your college experience. 3. Do your best to get to know your classmates and professors. There aren't really enough people for you to easily get lost in the crowd, so if you don't reach out, or if you rebuff friendly attempts at socialization, you may find that you've isolated yourself without meaning to do so. Life will be easier and more enjoyable if you cultivate positive relations. 4. Get involved. Join clubs. Try out for a sport. Volunteer. You'll meet new people (see the above statement for how not to be a social pariah), have unique experiences, and make great friends. It's the difference between having a fantastic college life and having four more years of high school.» Read More
Make sure that the school offers many grants rather than loans. If you are having family problems do not keep them to yourself because the professors want to understand where you're coming from. Make sure to know the difference between subsidize and unsubsidized loans.» Read More
