    Prospective students should be sure to prepare for an academic challenge. While professors are eager to help you, you need to make sure you are putting in the effort to succeed.

    Be more open-minded and friendly. The people here are very friendly and nice, it won't be hard to find where you can fit in if you're friendly and open-minded. Also, don't be afraid if you have no idea what you want to do just yet. They have professionals to help you find that one dream career.

    Rent textbooks online! The bookstore is a ripoff and Booksmart down the street only offers a slightly better deal on textbooks. Also carry an umbrella at all times. You never know when it will rain on your way to class and you don't want to be stuck under the cover of the breezeway when your class is the Culture and Society building. Never buy scantrons or blue books! You can get them for free from student government or even the library.

    Being just a few minutes away from the beach, you'll definitely need a bathing suit and flip flops stocked in your closet. Do realize though that the school is located in a city of a rather well off older population so aside from the beach there's only a limited amount of things to do for most college students. I would highly recommend bringing a car to the campus because luckily Boca Raton is not too far from many things such as Orlando, Miami Beach, and the Keys. You should be aware that FAU is mainly a commuter school and after most classes are done, the campus can be rather quiet. I recommend living on campus especially for the first year because Boca Raton is known for having steep rent unless you really do your research. If you do live off campus, try to stay east of the school because Glades Road traffic can be unbearable from time to time.

    Remember to buy all books and items needed for your classes before school starts.One you enroll, students are already hitting the shelves, trying to buy what they need early.
