    USE RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO YOU! I've read some reviews on other websites saying there's no help or resources. Baloney. Sac State has way more opportunities available than my community college provided.

    Understand how far the commute to campus can be when planning where to reside, factor in at least 40 minstrel of traffic. Check out rate my professor to get an understanding of the basics of the class but don't take the reviews to heart. UTILIZE THE RESOURCES OFFERED. ATTEND FROSH NIGHT AND SPEND THE NIGHT IN THE DORMS!! BEST DECISION I EVER MADE.

    Usually Sacramento State is thought of as a mediocre university, but really it's just as life changing as any other college. I would look into who I will be working with (professors) and meet them personally. The professors at Sacramento State are all amazing and caring people, and a lot of people just go to a college based on the reputation that they hear from others, but not from what they experience themselves/who they meet.

    Make sure you do plenty of research on the university before deciding to come. Also, make sure that your major and concentration is offered. For example, Sac State offers a B.A degree in Psychology but not a B.S. degree.

    Definitely be prepared to endure new cultural experiences. I think our campus is very diverse and offers an array of different options on how to look at life depending on the people you encounter and the courses you take. I would also suggest maybe fulfilling as many general education requirements within your first year as possible. I would also suggest maybe trying to fulfill those requirements by simultaneously taking classes that will fulfill your major requirements. That way you kill two birds with one stone and you'll be happy you did it.
