    don't freak out about living in a dorm with a community bathroom if you decide to live on campus, it really isn't that bad. you rarely run into anyone else and it's definitely cheaper. also, living on campus doesn't give you many food options if you don't like making things yourself, so learn some quick (and cheap) recipes to keep you from getting into a food rut. and study study study!

    1. Begin the college selection and financial aid process as a Junior in High School. 2. Speak with an academic advisor upon acceptance to establish a degree plan. 3. Arrange housing as soon as selection is available. 4. Schedule in time to study through out the week so that you can enjoy the weekends.

    Don't bother wasting money on a parking permit, just use the free shuttle bus. Join something, there's a club/organization out there for everyone. Make sure to try to develop a relationship with your professors and other possible connections.

    Any prospective students should highly consider buying decent walking shoes, because the campus is built on a hill and some buildings are far apart.

    Be more outgoing and join many different organizations but set your schedule to leave a lot of time to have to enjoy yourself. The hardest thing is time because you have so much of it between going to classes and joining student programs. Also never buy books that costs hundreds of dollars unless you need to, and if you don't use many websites like Chegg to rent/buy textbooks for cheap. Try some of the food places because there so many and sometimes you will become tired of eating the same old school food.
