    Get a pretty good GPA and take as many AP tests to test out of classes because the major fault about SJSU is the impaction of all the classes.

    Look through the list of clubs and organizations to be involved! And don't be afraid to email club advisers for meeting times! Try out for sports, SJSU has a variety of sports that you can involve yourself in. Check out the resources that the school has to offer (Counseling, EOP, etc).
