U.S. Naval Academy - 5 Things I Wish I Knew About Before Attending
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-things-i-wish-i-knew-about-before-attending-u-s-naval-academy/ - Don’t bring anything you don’t have to. In addition to being relieved of most of your hair, you will be given everything you need down to pens, pencils, and nail clippers on your first day. Everything else you bring will end up in a storage room for the first couple months. When you see it again, whatever it is will almost certainly not be useful to you and will be a pain to store or dispose of later. So, take the chance to start fresh in a new place with absolutely nothing but the clothes on your back, which will themselves be placed in a cardboard box for shipment back to where you came from a couple hours after you arrive.

U.S. Naval Academy - 5 Things to Avoid
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-things-to-avoid-at-u-s-naval-academy/ - Don’t think you’re special. This trips a lot of people up, starting on the first day. If you got into the Naval Academy, like any top tier or elite school, you probably were in fact pretty special wherever you came from. On Induction Day, you’ll be getting your head shaved (guys) / hair cut (girls) alongside 1,200 other people who were special wherever they were from. In the land where everyone’s special, no one is special. Get in line with everyone else, keep your mouth shut, do your best at whatever gets tossed at you, and help your classmates in the early going.

U.S. Naval Academy - 5 Things You Must Do On Campus
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-things-you-must-do-at-the-u-s-naval-academy/ - You must stay on track to graduate in eight semesters. It’s somewhere between a good idea and a rapidly fading dream at most schools, but you must graduate from the Naval Academy in eight semesters unless you are a very exceptional case. If you fail or incomplete a class that is a prerequisite for another series of classes that you can’t complete within four years, you’re either going to mandatory summer school or in danger of being summarily booted.

California State University Long Beach - Five Things I Wish I Knew Before Attending
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/Five-Things-I-Wish-I-Knew-Before-Attending-California-State-University-Long-Beach/ - When applying to colleges, it is often hard to get an authentic feel for the school before you have to make that crucial decision to attend. There is only so much one can discern from those generic college tours and even during orientation weekends. However, part of the college experience is that steep learning curve; living away from home for the first time is simultaneously exciting and terrifying.

Manhattan School of Music - 5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Attending
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-things-i-wish-i-knew-about-manhattan-school-of-music/ - For any aspiring classical or jazz musician looking for the best educational experience, it’s highly likely that Manhattan School of Music is one of their top choices. The prestigious faculty, successful graduates, and its prime location in New York City speak for itself at least, that was all I knew about the school before I made the final decision. Seven years and three degrees later, I would like to share my stories and some inside information that I’ve learned about this place that I can proudly call my “home.” I was the only one who went to a music conservatory from my local public high school. At MSM, basically everybody is a wonder-kid in their hometown from all over the world! Regardless of their nationality, age, gender, or major, each and every student here is crazy talented.

Upon arrival, I felt daunted and lonely. That only lasted a few weeks though, and before I knew it, I was talking to anybody and everybody around campus because I realized that I wasn’t alone they were all new at some point or another. The gluttonous dining halls, complete lack of curfew, gigantic auditorium style classes, and endless on campus events allowed me to revel in FREEDOM! Still, there was a lot that I didn’t expect, some things more pleasantly surprising than others.

San Francisco State University - Five Things I Wish I Knew Before Attending

SF State does not have enough on campus housing for incoming freshman. If you’re a freshman, the best way to ensure you get a spot in the dorms is to fill out the housing packet and send in your payment as soon as the university stars accepting applications. From there you will either get accepted or be put on a waitlist. The waitlist is always a gamble, but if you’re from the Bay Area or are close enough to commute in for a while, there’s a good chance you can get into the dorms a month or two after school has started.

That can be great, especially if you’re a commuter. But if you’re an 18-20 year old, either directly out of high school, or transferring from community college, you might want more of the stereotypical “college experience.” It’s not impossible to have that type of experience, but it takes vigilance. A lot of your friends will be driving back to Santa Clarita, Hollywood, the Westside, and other parts of LA after class – they might not be as available to hang out as they would have been at other local choices like UCLA or USC.

These are the five things I wish I had been told before I kicked off my fast paced and zany four years at UChicago. University of Chicago’s reputation for academic rigor is not exaggerated. For some students, this means long hours in the library. For others it means showing up to every single class attentive and fully awake. Most students take far too long to realize that the most important part of their UChicago education is not the compulsory stuff like classes or homework.

This was how it was for me when I went to study at Bloomsburg University to pursue my dream of being a lawyer. Here are five things I wish I knew about Bloom before I chose to attend. Bloomsburg University is located on a beautiful Pennsylvania landscape with green trees and fresh air. Most of the classes are held in five buildings located next to one another around what is known as the academic quad. When the weather is warm the campus is filled with lively people – for when it is cold, the buildings are only a short walk from one to the other. With an awesome library updated with the latest technology as the headpiece to the setting, Bloomsburg University’s campus is the best place to be. The only sources of food on campus from from Aramarc, a chemical company that produces highly processed food that is not good for your health at all. Anywhere except for the commons, all you can really get are burgers and chicken sandwiches, fried appetizers, pizza, low quality salads, and processed shelf snacks. The wraps are acceptable but the prices are ridiculous. At the Commons, they try to give it a more home cooked feel but you can taste fakeness in what they are trying to pull off.

Michigan State University - 5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Attending
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-Things-I-Wish-I-Knew-Before-I-Attended-Michigan-State-University/ - I didn’t really care much about sports before I went to Michigan State but once you’re there, it’s hard not to get swallowed into the energy collegiate football kicks out. I just accepted it, joined the bandwagon, and didn’t regret a bit of it. There is nothing quite as magical as waking up early on a beautiful, crisp, fall morning to get hammered with a bunch of friends and a mass of strangers who you are internally bonded to for one day of the week. You don’t have to know players’ names, scores, or stats, but just showing up with the right attitude and proper apparel is enough to have a great time.

Rice University - 5 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Attending
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-Things-I-Wish-I-Had-Known-About-Rice-University-Before-Attending/ - If you’re considering applying to Rice University or if you have done even brief research on the school, I’m sure you’ve heard of the residential college system. Think of it as the houses in Harry Potter. All incoming freshmen are randomly sorted into one of eleven residential colleges at Rice. Every college has some 200-300+ students, and while each one functions as a dorm, in reality the colleges are so much more than a collection of bedrooms. Of course the colleges are a place for eating, sleeping, and socializing.

University of Chicago - 5 Things to Avoid
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-things-to-avoid-at-university-of-chicago/ - From major to minor discomforts, here are five quintessential University of Chicago experiences you don’t need to learn the hard way You may grow ashamed of the goofy, fresh faced photo on your UChicago ID card or “UCID,” but there is a reason why the card they issue you during Orientation is meant to follow you throughout your four years. The UCID is your skeleton key to everything on campus, so losing track of it can be a severe handicap on daily productivity. Having limited access to the library, the dining hall, the printing system, and even your residence hall is enough to drive a busy student insane.

Dartmouth College - Five Things To Do On Friday Night
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/Five-Things-to-Do-on-a-Friday-Night-at-Dartmouth-College/ - Definitely, go out fratting, play pong, spend time talking to other people in a basement. If you’re a freshman, you will probably be going out with your freshmen floor in conspicuously huge groups, called “shmobs.” It’s better if you plan ahead and stop by the frat that your trip leader is part of and proceed to try to “get on table” to play pong. If you’re a sophomore, play pong in your basement with your own sorority sisters or fraternity brothers with all the competitive spirit of an Olympian.

UMass Amherst - 5 Things I Wish I Knew About Before Attending
http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-things-i-wish-i-knew-about-umass-amherst-before-attending/ - College is probably the best and worst time you will ever have in your life. That being said, I have a love-hate relationship with my alma mater, UMass Amherst. I remember walking into the Southwest territory of the campus, for my first day of orientation, and the amount of electric excitement pulsing through my body was outstanding. Here I was; my first official step to freedom’s door, the freedom from high school, curfews, and a lack of autonomy. I thought for sure the next four years of my life would be full of orange mocha Frappucinos, blackout bliss, food comas, and learning some pretty cool things about life.
