  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Before applying it's a great idea to visit campus. Being an open campus you could drive and walk around or simply take the LIRR right from penn station. Get involved from the moment you get accepted, follow the school on social media. It's very helpful to keep you up to date.
