    My most helpful tips are: -Make sure you are comfortable living away from home, and even if you're not sure, don't let that deter you from moving to the city -Join clubs. It may be cliche, but I found several great groups of friends by getting out of my comfort zone. -Explore the city, take advantage of your location to find and learn new things, and have fun -Develop a good relationship with your professors. They will generally appreciate a student who is engaged and respectful, and it will help improve how much you learn and possibly gain you an ally who is willing to offer insight and opportunities to you.

    Don't try to contact the academic advisers, they will not help you. They will only help the people who are already selling their soul in the form of money to them.

    Retake your SATs/ACTs for a higher score. Take dual credit/AP courses. (These will likely get you out of required classes.) Keep your GPA high. All of these will count towards your scholarship consideration. Also, utilize rate my professor.

    If you're planning to go to DePaul, get everything done as soon as you can and try to get into the honors program for your major. This is a popular school, and things fill up fast. There have been students who have been unable to get housing, and there are students such as myself who have to make do with temporary housing, which while not terrible is definitely something to be avoided. Sign up for orientation as soon as you can, because while signing up for orientation you also sign up for your Chicago quarter class (if you're a freshman) and because those fill up so quickly you need to get in there early to get into the class you want. I also suggest going to the soonest orientation you can because, like I said, classes fill up fast. I suggested joining the honors program because If you're in the honors program then you are given priority for class selection, meaning you're less likely to get waitlisted as I was. Those were just the mistakes I made, but other than that I say get involved, study adequately and make the most of it!

    As a business major, I would highly recommend DePaul to anyone who's pursuing or thinking of pursuing a career in the business field. Studying in one of the biggest cities is already an advantage but DePaul also has a certain prestige among the Chicago businesses when it comes to its graduating students.
