    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.

    Be patient, a lot of things will seem bad at first but most of the issues you'll experience as a new student will get much better over time. Early classes are worth it to get great parking and beat traffic and the earlier you start your day, the earlier you'll finish and also the early classes tend to have more room because students don't want to be at school that early.

    If you are interested in Sacramento State, apply right away. Make sure to carefully decide on your major as changing it later will result in longer time spent in school. Apply for financial aid early and you will receive more aid to pay for your necessities. Be nice to your professors as they will be the one's to provide letter of recommendation's for you later.

    Take advantage of the AIRC- a building open 24 hours for studying with a computer lab and plenty of tables with outlets. If Greek life is your thing, definitely get involved because there are so many networking and leadership opportunities. If you're not interested in Greek life get involved in ASI or any of the clubs on campus. It's a great way to meet people and will give you a richer college experience at this commuter school.
