    Dont be afraid to go to office hours! The Professors warmly welcome you to just chat with them. Unless you got a car on campus, you will be traveling on the bus to get to the nearby cities and towns such as Camarillo, Oxnard, and Thousand Oaks. Dont worry about the meal plan as a Freshman. Usually you will have enough to eat for the whole semester or even left over swipes. Make sure to come with an open mind! Some people are disappointed when they find out there isnt much of a college experience that goes on here on this small campus, but if you come with an open mind and no expectations, you'll enjoy all the things CI has to offer.

    Be prepared to have to access to the MyCI portal almost daily; many professors use it and you will need to check it frequently if yours does. Try to be as informed as possible before any walk-ins at any department; hours, acceptable payment methods, and required information all vary. BEWARE!

    If you dorm here as a freshmen, try to meet a lot of people! There will be many floor activities through out each month so even if you have a hard time meeting with new people, you'll still be sure to find some friends. Though I find CI to be active and exciting, with all the block parties every other friday, Don't get caught up in the fun. If you feel you deserve a break from studying then go ahead!

    Freshman should get the 160 meal plan, which is the lowest meal plan because you will never go to the cafe 160 times. The school is surrounded by farms, so you have to drive out to get to stores, restaurants, etc. Explore the campus and find out where your classes are located before school starts. If you are interested in nursing, the nursing program is great. This is not a party school.

    Be prepared to be bored. The academic side of CI is decent, but entertainment for students is hard to find. Campus is about a 10 minute drive from the main town, which consists of a few strip malls, an outlet mall, a lazy downtown, and a lot of suburbs. For concerts, film screenings, nightlife, etc., you have the option to head to Santa Barbara (one hour north) or Los Angeles (1+ hour south).
