Keep up with current events and assignments, bring an umbrella and boots (for rain and snow), join at least one club freshman year, and make the most of your experience.

Bring a warm winter coat and rain boots!!!!

I would recommend applying even if you think it's too expensive; almost everyone I know has an academic scholarship. I'm on academic scholarship even though I had less than perfect grades in high school. I would also recommend coming to visit the school. The campus is beautiful and the buildings are all updated and new.

Make sure you ask the right questions on any college tour that you go on. They will tell you over and over again that they have 100+ clubs for you to join, but they don't tell you what those clubs are doing during the weekends (the answer is nothing). Make sure you weigh the pros and cons of going to a small school rather than a big school. Yes, you most likely will have smaller class but will you have everything that you need to make you happy?

When choosing a college, don't just focus on the typical categories. Make sure you take a look at aspects of the college that are not really talked about during interviews and campus tours. Some things I wish I knew beforehand was outside transportation availability, health center hours, and the range of food options. It's hard to see everything at once. Spending an over night before committing to a school really helps to get a well-rounded perspective of all the school has to offer. Don't be afraid to spend the night with strangers! It's great practice for when you start college with brand new people!
