    Get used to having a lot of kids around: I went to the children's school (K-8th) on the college campus and this campus was like our kingdom. education major college students worked in our classrooms all the time and we attended many of our classes in college buildings quite regularly. It makes for a pleasant ecosystem and a very unique experience for everyone involved.

    GET A PEER MENTOR. Whittier College is not a party school, but its not boring either. The Wanberg Cellar has an arcade and a sports game center. Parking Permits are available through Campus Safety and free. Buy a meal plan to eat at the Campus Inn. Its an extra cost outside of tuition, but worth it. Live on campus if you can afford the extra cost. Commuting is tiring and hell on gas. Mailboxes are available for all students, so get one so your family can send you mail. My gramma used to send me birthday cards and gift cards to my campus mailbox. Look for internship fairs and apply for work-study. The hiring fairs usually happen a few days before classes start and finding a job after classes start is difficult.
