GET INVOLVED!!! Keep in mind that you are going to college for academics, but if you sit in your room all day studying, you will be miserable at your college. Get to know people and make friends quickly. The more involved you are, the more people you will get to know. However, once again, academics come first, so make sure you don't over-commit yourself.
Also, keep in mind that although the stereo-type of college is heavy drinking and partying, you can get through school without it. There are plenty of people who feel pressured to drink because everyone is doing it. There are plenty of people who don't drink in college. Just don't be pressured into it. If you do choose to drink, BE RESPONSIBLE. Don't drink as much as you can just to get drunk. You have too much to lose.
Prospective students should apply early. Once they apply they should come visit, the campus is beautiful. Also, meet with the people working in the admission office, they can really give you a lot of information and help.

Try to do well your first year because the habits that you start freshman year are hard to break after you get into a specific routine.
Hannah from Corry, PA
It's a great school to attend if you're looking for a focused environment and a smaller class size.

Talk to people. You never know who might become your friends and everyone has something to teach you, whether it's big or small. Have fun but be responsible because one night of fun is not worth throwing away years of hard work. Organization is extremely helpful so you don't forget meetings and deadlines. Also, take Prior for philosophy if you can!
Sarah from Pittsburgh, PA
Try joining clubs, organizations, and greek life.
Kathleen from Cleveland, OH
Get your application in early. Especially if you want to come here for the PA program. It fills up really quick!

The most important tip that I have for prospective students is to stay on top of your workload and to not procrastinate because before you know it, it will all pile up on you. I would also recommend not cramming before quizzes and exams and not waiting until the night before an assignment is due to start it.
