    Learn about the campus atmosphere before you decide to come here. Visit during the school year and try to stay overnight to witness dorm life. DO YOUR HOUSING EARLY!

    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.
