  • Sep-19-2017 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Definitely visit campus. This school is probably quite a bit different than what you would imagine at first. For me personally, the size of the campus didn't really click with me until I went on my visit, and that was something I needed to see. Also, if you visit as an expected student, they will give you food, fam. Like, for free. If not, you have to pay for your lunch even if you do decide to eat on campus.

    Do all you can, early. Look in to financial aid and scholarship earlier than you think. Take a campus tour, earlier than you think. You'll need a lot of time to make a final decision.

    Just remember that it is what you make it. If you are here to party every weekend then try to do well on your Monday exam you aren't going to do well. Don't blame that on the professor. Take responsibility. You get out what you put in.

    Enjoy every moment. Those four years (or sometimes more) go by faster than you could every imagine. This is the only time in your life that you will be surrounded by all the same aged people with the same purpose and interests which is to educate themselves and plan a future. Make new friends, step out of your comfort zones, attend sporting events, spend nights at the library, take advantage of the opportunities given to you and relish in them. School is important and studying is definitely necessary but organize yourself, learn time management so that you get the necessary parts done and have time to embody the college life that gives so many memories and experiences.
