    Get your books quick! The bookstore is really expensive, so I suggest getting your books online. The professors will start assigning work from the textbooks as soon as classes start, so be ready. They grade things differently in college. I failed my first algebra test because I wasn't expecting such harsh grading. If you don't understand something, ask your professor about it. There are also lots of tutors in the library who can help with homework and studying. Lastly, be friendly. Everyone here is really nice, so be nice back. Be understanding and don't lie. I know that seems like something you should already know, but seriously. I know a few people who have obviously lied about their pasts to seem cool, but really if you just be yourself, that's what Cottey people care about the most. We love diversity here! We love to see different people's personalities and interests. So seriously, be yourself!

    Go in with an open mind. Just because its a small, all womens college doesn't mean you should over look it. sometimes smaller is better and you realize that gaining a few more friends is better than a boyfriend could ever be. Cottey is the place to find your brides maids. this school not only has wonderful educational opportunities, but also is a great place to form life long friendships.

    If you are planning on attending Cottey, then it wouldn't be a bad idea to get to know your professors. They really do enjoy when a student shows interest in the class and they enjoy getting to talk to the students outside of classes as well.

    I suggest to prospective students to visit the campus if at all possible. Our student ambassador program is great at really showing what the school is about and you can talk to other students who will give you their opinion, the good and the bad. Also, if you are from a large city, be aware that we are an hour's drive from any mall. It can be frustrating for some students
