Wear flip flops in the shower, get good rain and snow boots, and PARTICIPATE!!!
Victoria from Cheshire, CT
Be ready to work hard. College is very different than high school. It is easy to get caught up in the large amount of free time you have. The University of Saint Joseph is a small university which is great because it allows you to have a better relationship with your professors. They can and will help you succeed.
Jacqueline from North Andover, MA
For maximum achievement, visit the center for academic excellence and your academic advisor's office at least twice a week. The center for academic excellence because they provide help on any given day for all courses and for most social problems such as time management, best social events on campus, and most importantly how to survive in the real world. Visiting your academic advisor is essential because they are there to help you as much as possible with anything including personal problems. They are paid to do as much as they can for your best benefit.
TC from New Haven, CT
This is a really great college that will prepare you for the work world more than other colleges. There is some work involved though but as long as you go to class and do you assignments you should be fine.
