    It is always a great idea to study, but have fun too. Never procrastinate, but once in a while is okay. Get involve in activities, clubs, and the school spirit.

    Get a meal plan where you have both block meals and declining balance (db). Alot of people who get unlimited block meals often switch their meal plan to have db so they have more food options.

    Come here if you want a truly focused academic setting. There is a party side to western but it is easily avoided. ALSO, be sure to apply to the honors college! The perks are better dorms, early registration, and even more major opportunities.

    Don't bring alot with you to campus. Also, join alot of clubs and pick some new activities to try! Do all your school work during the week and make sure you remember to be safe and have fun!
