    If you're going to live on campus-go with the unfurnished apartments and save money.

Take the van trips to the grocery store on Sundays-NOT Saturdays.

    Apply as early as possible to get merit scholarships. The staff are really helpful so if you have questions don't be afraid to ask. Definitely attend one of their campus visits. They're free and extremely informative. This is the best way to decide if this is the right school for you.
