Get involved, bring rain boots, and get ready to study but also have a great time at South!
Tamera from Center Point, AL
Take a look around the website and especially pay attention to a lot of the new features the campus is adding. They have so many new buildings and more to come. Also, there are currently 2 live webcams up of different spots on campus; if you are from far away like I was, this could be your first, and only, look at the campus before you apply!
Cecillia from Bassett, VA
Be involved on campus! Find an organization that you are interested in that has to so with your major or interests in order to connect with people socially and academically.
Raymond from Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Don't be scared of meeting new people and trying different things.
Kendrick from Jackson, AL
Invest in the meal plan, you may not think so now but you will run out of money. The cafeteria is open till 10 P.M. so you always have a backup plan if your broke.
Kaitlyn from Mobile, AL
Apply early, make sure your GPA is up to par, and do your best on the ACT.
Dion from Birmingham, AL
Go to class and make the effort and you will come out with a good grade.
Olivia from Ocean Springs, MS
Tips that I would give prospective students would be, don't be afraid to ask questions because the people are really nice and helpful. You could make a friend just by asking a question. When I began school there, I didn't know anyone at all, but now I have more friends than I can count. The second tip would be don't be afraid to be yourself because it's many different types of people so if you be yourself, you will fit in just fine. The third tip would be to look over the Jag Tran routes before the first day of school so they will not get on the wrong one.
Aerion from Valley, AL
The most important thing to remember, is to come out of your shell. Talk to the people you have classes with, and make new friends, you never know when you will need a study buddy. Study, it is the best thing you can do. Don't Fret if you don't do your best on your first test. Learn from your mistakes. Get out of your dorm. If you commute, you can still participate in the activities around campus.
Lauren from Spanish Fort, AL
As cliché as it may sound, getting involved on campus will make your college experience one of a lifetime. Don't wait until sophomore year like I did in order to truly get involved. Find several organizations that you are interested in and make contact with the individuals in charge. They will be more than happy to provide you with information about the organization. Most student organizations have facebook pages and send out emails that give you a sense of what they are about.
Living on campus is also something that I would recommend. It's fun and convenient. When you only have to walk ten minutes to class in the morning from your front door, it makes it a lot more likely that you will actually motivate yourself to go.
