    I would suggest going here because a lot of times it is a looked over school and it is great! We have over 19,000 enrolled this year and no matter what personality you are, you will love it! It is a smooth transition from High School to College and I didn't at once feel like the workload was too strong or that the curriculum was too hard. When I was looking for schools before this I wanted a relatively nice sized school but also not too many students on campus so I didn't feel like a number. Sam is great with getting students involved and it is so easy to make friends here, just go to class or next door in your hall and BAM friends.

    Make sure to submit dorm applications early so you can live in a nice dorm. You wont necessarily need your car if you're going to live on campus. If you're not a morning person don't take anything earlier than 10 a.m. because by the end of the semester you won't wanna get up Trust me.
