Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Attempt to do well on the SATs to get better scholarships.
  • Get good grades.
  • Make the most of what you do in high school.
  • Talk to someone in Admissions; they want you to come here and will help you with any concerns.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Bring folders; stay as organized as possible.
  • If looking for a job or work-study position, apply as soon as you can. Being proactive helps you with competition in the small town.
  • Just because you can go out every night doesn't mean you have to.
  • Keep all of your notes; you will use them again in most cases.
  • Most people are friendly if you are.
  • Start building your resume as soon as you can. Join all of the clubs and associations involved with your major.
  • You don't always have to buy every single book that a class "requires." Wait until the teacher advises if you need it, and just rent a book online or buy it through the bookstore at a lower price.
