    At SFU, make sure you bring a warm jacket with a scarf, hat, and gloves for the winter! It gets very cold. Make a real attempt to get to know your professors because you may end up spending a lot of time in their offices! Also, remember that no matter what college or university you decide to go to, remember that college is like your opportunity for a fresh start. Nobody knows you and you don't know anybody. You can change anything that you didn't like about yourself in high school, but BE YOURSELF!

    -Study hard and do your work on time. As a student in high school who never had to study, college hit me hard when I actually had to study for a math class. -Don't procrastinate. The professors will give you projects to work on, and they will generally give you a window of time to get it done. If you wait until the last minute all of your other work will seem to pile up and you will start to feel smothered. -Find your own place where you like to study. If you share a room with someone else, and they are distracting, you will need somewhere else to go. Saint Francis has many great places to study, which is a great perk about the school. -Get involved! In order to meet new people and make the most of your college experience, no matter which college you attend, joining clubs and becoming active on campus is a great way to get your foot in the door. Specifically at Saint Francis, they have over 20 groups to get involved, and offer a Study Abroad program for the adventurous.

    Bring a car, get a lower meal plan with more bonus dollars that allows you to eat somewhere other than Torvian every meal. Better yet, attend a different institution. Honestly, I've met many people who are unhappy at this school.

    Take advantage of the attention teachers can give due to small class sizes. Don't let the boring days take you out of your focus. Make a schedule and stick by it.

    Be prepared for college to be an adjustment from high school. Keep an open mind to new things that you might not have even thought twice about in high school. Although the campus is small, embrace that and use it to your advantage; develop strong bonds and relationships with professors and new friends in the small community.
