Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Everyone should meet with an adviser at least once a semester.
  • Make copies of every document.
  • Picking classes and sections located relatively close to each other rather than zigzagging back and forth across the campus will benefit everyone.
  • Signing up for Dining Dollars instead of a structured meal plan is usually a pretty good idea.
  • The people in the Administration Building are by no means the easiest people to deal with.
  • There are a lot of large classes.
  • Think about your characteristics when choosing your dorm and roommate. Do not just pick someone off of a Facebook page!
  • You can't always count on the administration.
