Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Bring winter clothes with you when you first in August, unless you live in Erie.
  • Get involved with an activity your freshman year.
  • Get to know your professors as soon as you can.
  • Intramurals here are huge. Teams compete to be the "Intramural Team of the Year."
  • Sign up to live in Senat Hall as soon as you get your housing contract.
  • Snow starts to fall at the beginning of November and can last through April.
  • The food is absolutely terrible, so bring as much of your own as possible or bring a car so you can get to the grocery store or restaurants.
  • The whole campus is a huge hill, so be prepared to walk.
