    Decide right now if you want to be in a small or large school. See what academic programs we offer and see if you can combine two things you love. Call and ask questions to professors who are head of that program.

    Buy your books online-you'll save a lot of money because the bookstore prices are high. Apply for on campus jobs months in advance before school starts. Be positive and willing to serve-you never know who is watching and who will notice your hard work.

    This school is great for students who want to make a difference and be proactive in their education. Not only do your friends want you to have a good education, but your professors want you to work the hardest and be the best student that you can be. You won't have to worry about you professors forgetting about you or not knowing who you are because they make such a great effort to know you personally.
