    GET INVOLVED! I am a Latina women and going into SDSU I had a bit of a cultural shock, but it wasnt until I got involved in an organization that I realized how diverse this school really is. After joining I became more aware of all the resources SDSU has to offer which is how I found out about the study abroad opportunities it offers. Take advantage of that too.

    I would give prospective students 3 pieces of advice, and these apply no matter what college you choose to go to. 1) Apply for scholarships NOW. Do not wait until you're already in college. 2) Try to live on campus. The feeling of rolling out of bed ten minutes before class and then coming back to your room to sleep afterwards is amazing. It's also a great way to build independence and test your character as well as make friends. And 3) keep up with your grades. As liberating and fun as college life is, t's a lot harder than you think to balance extra-curricular activities with grades and jobs, if you choose to be employed. As far as SDSU goes, I'd just say try never to walk alone at night, and take advantage of all the different clubs, sports, and activities!

    Go out and meet as many people as possible during your entire college career because that is the greatest way to maximize your social life at SDSU. The more people you know, the more opportunities that will be presented to you. Weigh your opportunities before taking action to ensure maximization of your college experience. Also, remember that just because you were above average in intelligence and work ethic in high school (which is what got you in to college), everyone else at college is also above average; therefore, you must work harder to prove yourself to be greater than the average college student.
