    Know your finances. Be prepared to have quite a few out-of-pocket costs for many of the programs, especially photography/photojournalism and the visual arts. Be open to new people, fun people, LOUD people.

    If you really have your heart set, give it a shot. I wasn't 100% sold on it to start with so I'm not surprised it wasn't the best fit. However, please be aware that the dining and health services are honestly awful and I've found it very hard to get answers from anyone about anything. Also not sure where our tuition is going, because a good amount of things in the place are busted.

    Perhaps this goes for many college students, but be sure to stay on top of all your assignments otherwise they will pile up more and more. If you are planning on commuting try to plan out your travel route for your classes because it is a very different experience when attending school downtown. If you have any questions about your classes, activities, grades, ect. always be sure to ask because everyone there is willing to help in any way they can!
