    College is nothing like high school at all. You get to pick and choose what classes you want to take especially ones that sound very interesting to you. Also no one is around telling you what to do every 5 seconds, professors don't tell you to take your hat off like they did in High School they really don't care I mean you are paying for the class. Also you can go eat all by yourself in the cafeteria and no one will judge you, No one really cares around here what you really do unlike high school people were very judgmental. College is the time to meet new people go out and have a great time. Yeah it might be hard not being around your friends and family all the time but thats what college is all about! Time to explore the world that is around you. You can also take naps wherever you are and no one will care. College is something that everyone should do yes it is very hard at times but in the end you know everything will be worth it. From those sleepless nights to even times where you don't even eat! College is something that everyone should look forward to. Wish you all the best of luck!

    To get into WSU is not that hard. Good GPA (and TOEFL for international student). Some students never took SAT or ACT score and still got admitted. But if you want to be eligible for a lot of scholarships, take the SAT or ACT exam. Go for the university tour BEFORE you decide!

    Winona is a great school. I would highly suggest living in the Dorms your first year because that is by far one of the best ways to meet new people. Also, there is a lake lodge on the big lake and you should definitely pay the $5 for a year long membership. You get to go kayaking or canoeing or paddle boating and there are activities held there too. I would suggest trying to join a club or two because that is also a great way to meet new people. The school is super supportive of its students. They have so many ways that you can get help if you are having a hard time understanding what is going on in classes. There are tutoring centers, you can always create a study group with fellow classmates, or the professors are normally more than willing to help out and really want you to succeed in their classes.

    Do your research on your intended major/minor. Make sure you look at classes as well to see what they offer.
