Lionel Anderson, an academic adviser at Temple's Fox School of Business, offered advice to prospective college students who want to spend their college years at one institution. Be realistic about the total four-to-five-year cost. Remember the non-tuition obligations you'll have. Check out the academic support and resources available to students. Experience the student life offered by your prospective school. If you want to avoid transferring and see yourself as a one-school kind of person, "do all you can to try to get it right the first time," said Anderson.
