Best bit of advice for students looking for a college/university? Look for a university that will enable you to get involved! As well, visit every campus you are interested in.
Most embarrassing "college" moment: I was sitting in my Health Communication class on Valentine's Day, when a girl walked in and asked for Ryan Copeland. I raised my hand and a whole girls choir walked in and made me sit in a chair in front of my whole class...my girlfriend (almost fiancee) sent them to sing love songs to me on that day and I'm pretty sure I sweat as much as I would have if I had gone for a run!
