    Suggested Preparation

  • Look over the program details, make sure this school is the right fit for you. It is also a good idea to research the professors on campus and make a list of the top candidates you would like to work with in research projects.
  • Find Housing: Some options are provided here, but remember that ultimately you are responsible for finding your own housing.
  • Contact current grad students (or have WSU staff help you contact) to ask around for a place to live (the networking option).
  • Look on craigslist or other internet resource (beware of scams)
  • Look in newspaper ads (again, beware of scams, check out where you are going if possible)
  • (Remember, you can always move after you get to WSU if you are unhappy with your living situation. Keep in mind the stresses of moving during school when making such choices.)
