Not sure where you're headed? Visit your top 3 choices when they are in session. Visit a dorm too! You might not like the noise or environment. You might want to live off campus.

Preparing for your Studies
Important: before going to college, take a speed reading course! Get your reading speed up to over 600 words a minute. You'll have to do a lot of reading no matter what.
