    Do the homework. NO JOKE. Also keep track of your grades and know where the professors offices are they will help you in the long run. It's a tough place to learn sometimes but there are many facilities open everyday to help struggling students in almost every subject.

    Off campus housing is available and if worked the right way, (private housing) can be VERY affordable. The college is located in a well established, low crime, family orientated neighborhood. Within walking distance to the trains (which are reliable and affordable to Chicago). If you plan to live on campus your freshman year, and have a bike, it would be advisable to bring it with you.
