    If saving financially is your chief concern then this may be the best college for you in the western Connecticut area, however the offering of classes and curriculum can make an extra year or two in college an expensive reality.

    A few things you want to do before starting school is have your FAFSA completed as soon as possible, it makes a difference. Also, think about going into college as Undecided, even if you know what you want to major in. Going in undecided will just give you a little time, a semester at least, for you to figure out what classes to look into. If you know what you want to major in then you can sign up for all the classes you want or that apply to your major second semester. If anything you will get your gen-eds out of the way. Also talk to your counselors, and the academic advisement center, they are there to help you. Its good to know what resources are available to you, and if you have any questions, just ask someone. An RA, a counselor or even an upperclassman.

    Students must be focused and be able to effectively manage their time. Most college students work and go to school full time so it is hard for them to manage their time which affects their grades. If the students can manage their time they will be able to do great in college and at work.

    Western Connecticut State University is not a hard school to get into, as long as you try you will ace all your classes don't stress much. Also don't stress on the fact that it's college and everything is new because everything gets old and you get use to everyone and everything in no time. The theatre program is great, and starting Fall 2014 there will be scholarships for technical theatre majors and you can get a full ride all four years.
