Make sure to visit the Golden Eagle Days as well as your own private visits. Also, APPLY TO SCHOLARSHIPS. This school could be on the more expensive side and looking for scholarships early on will definitely be helpful.

If you are diligent at your work, Cornerstone is a great place to learn.
Elijah from Grand Rapids, MI
If you enjoy worshiping God and want to grow in your faith this school is great for you because it is small so it is more personal and you can build strong relationships on campus.
Shylia from Milwaukee, WI
Get involved and stay involved. It's as simple as that. You don't have to play sports and be in theater to be involved. Attend the sporting events, volunteer on campus, have an on-campus job, or even just leave your dorm room door open, so others know that you welcome company. This will help you meet more people and make classes more fun because you know others who are in class with you.
Nicole from Rockford, MI
Come in with no expectations. Be ready to be changed. Be ready to take risks and meet new people. God will work in you in a way that I cannot explain. I have grown in my relationship with God through the people, professors, the weather, late-night talks with my roommate.
Madison from Laguna Niguel, CA
Come expecting God to move in your life. If you let Him move, you will be transformed. God is doing amazing things in people's lives.

make sure you fill out your dorm paperwork/profile correctly so you get matched up with people you will get along with.

Get out and meet people! During my first semester, I purposely chose to sit with different people each time I ate in the cafeteria, and it was probably one of the best decisions that I made. The people you meet and the conversations you join are so worth it. The funny thing for me was that several people thought I was a sophomore or junior simply because they saw me sitting with other sophomores/juniors during lunch and dinner.
I agree with what some of the other reviewers said. It is important to let people know that you welcome their presence. Open your door, get out and participate in section activities and other campus events, and just purposefully establish friendships.
