    1: Do not fret about not knowing what exactly you want to do with your life. Trust me Altoona may be relaxing, however, it can easily distract you from your academic work. 2: Its ideal to live in the dorms since its the easiest way to make friends on campus. 3: Small class sizes so ask for help. 4: strongly advise eating the breakfast sandwiches 5:There is plenty of networking opportunities (Take the time to attend them)
