    Get more ram cash then meal swipes. Besides the nursing program, I am not really sure about how competitive any of the other offered programs are.

    Once you go here you will definitely have a sense of Ram Pride and you won't hesitate to show it off. You won't always like being here but the friends you meet will be your friends for a lifetime.

    Get the most use possible out of your books, if you are going to spend all that money on them then use them. Also if you get a meal card use it do not be afraid to get out and go to the cafe or cafeteria. You pay for activities in tuition so go to the athletics and things happening on campus, also look around and get to know your campus.
