    If you're planning on coming to West Chester know what to expect. It's not Philadelphia, it's a small town and the people treat it as such. There's not trash everywhere and noise in Philly which is nice but there's also a lack of diversity you see in an urban center and there is a much much much smaller creative community in the town than Philadelphia. That being said West Chester is in its own right an interesting college town that can keep your attention pretty well if you aren't looking for a large creative community. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in the town which are fun(if somewhat expensive) but if you're underage in West Chester you'll likely be spending a lot of time socializing at parties in West Chester (if drinking is your thing that is). On parties too, most parties are ticket parties which can be really frustrating to Freshman who may not have friends with apartments but that's a temporary thing as almost everyone makes friends in college and you'll find a place to wind up eventually. Overall just do your best to keep an open mind when at West Chester but know what you want to do. If you're going for Business, Science, Communication, Nursing, or Education, West Chester is a great choice. If you're not going for one of those careers, keep your options open.

    If you're worried about friends, just come here and go to one of the Off Campus and Commuters meetings. You're guaranteed to meet one good person that will link up to at least 5 others by the end of the day. If you plan to live on campus, just make sure you leave your door open on move-in day. It's a common thing we do. Leave it open, and while you are getting settled, people will stop by for a quick chat when they pass by.

    Talk to everyone! Some of the people I've learned the most from since coming to college have been the bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and security guards!
