What is one resource students should know about?   The Health Center and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

Favorite class and why?  Chemistry has been my favorite class so far! The class has had 14-16 students either semester, and the small class size makes learning really fun and low-key. Having such a small class also makes it easy to ask your classmates for help or to start a good study group. The small classes also often get broken off into groups to discuss the topic during class, and the interpersonal discussion fosters a stronger understanding of the subject.

What should people bring and what should they NOT bring?  Students should bring plenty of Command hooks, at least one set of plates, cups, utensils, etc., and cold medicine! When you get sick, it's no fun to have to go to get medicine. For a simple cold (which runs through campus right around 4-day), it's one of the most essential things to bring (and I speak from experience). They should NOT bring all their clothes, shoes with big heels, and an iron/ironing board (you really won't need it that often).
