    Don't stay in towers. It's the worst dorm hall. Save your dining dollars as long as you can because sometimes the caf will be horrible.

    This school was the worst - I graduated from NSU with a comm degree and couldn't wait to get outta there. Teachers who cant use a computer, typos in every email and syllabus, they don't call you back, full voice mails, attitudinal unhappy employees, late to grade, later post stuff. NSU is for people who have low expectations, and less ambition - those old deans and dept heads with PHDs from 1975 need to go so that some REAL educators can be hired to teach these poor kids.

    Invest in anything that can protect you and your backpack from rain. Also be sure to bring some good rain boots. It floods here badly. If you can bring a car. Have a mindset to study at least an hour everyday. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Stay on top of everything with your advisors. Do what's best for you.

    Tour! Before you do anything, tour the campus with an actual tour guide. Find out about the things that matter to you- sports, organizations, majors, visitation policies, ect. You don't want to be stuck somewhere you hate, so do all the research you can before attending a school. It's not just a school, it's somewhere you are going to live for four years and grow as a person. You want to be in an environment that benefits you.

    One of the best choices for a student with limited resources on having funds, family, and friends to help guide them through their college career is to live on campus. Living on campus has numerous perks provided to its students living on campus, as well as the opportunity to build family-like relationships and friendships within the diverse community. Also, it is key, and rule #1, to go to your classes if you're not looking to waste your time and money.
