    Make sure you know what it is you want most from your school, be it an education, a social life, a chance to give back to the community, or small classes. For me Central is all these things and more, but that's based on the levels I want, each person has their own needs. So make sure to know what you want beforehand and ask the questions to find out if Central is the best fit for you, just try to ask more than one person as everybody has different experiences. Don't forget to take the tour, even if you chose not to come, you don't want to miss out on see the campus.
