    Don't expect it to be easy just because it's a state school. Don't be afraid to approach and talk to your teachers, if you put in the effort, so will they. Try not to only goto the right of the Pod to eat, you'll gain a freshman 40 instead of a freshman 15.

    Make friends with other students in your prospective major and with the professors it comes in handy. Don't worry you will figure out the campus within the first 3 days of classes it is not hard. Try to walk through the buildings during the winter, it is a lot better than having to take the extra time and chill to walk around.

    The school itself is very progressive and teachers teach in a non-traditional way, so if you're coming to WSU you should keep your mind open and ready to learn in new and exciting ways. Same advice I'll give to any prospective student for any college, just be calm and collected and be ready to have a great time and enjoy it while it lasts.

    Worcester State is primarily a commuter school but is currently building a new dorm building, to create more living space for students living on campus. Take as many well rounded classes as possible and start with an open mind! There are so many different classes offered here you are bound to find what sparks your interests.
