Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you live in a dorm, it really depends on your RA. Alcohol is always cheap and available, which is often too much freedom for some new students caught up in their new found freedom. Just be careful on unofficial- police are very active and will crack down on negligent behavior, especially underage drinking.
scholarships can be awarded by the university or by individual colleges. I didn't apply for very much need-based financial aid, and I was disappointed with how I didn't receive any merit-based financial aid, even though I had excellent grades, test scores, and was active in extracurricular activities.

Advice for students:
lots of people will complain about the dorm food. We do, however, have an amazing array of options and variety. If you don't like what your dining hall is serving, you can always go to another hall. There are always options for vegetarians and vegans. Sure it won't be the same as eating at home, but the dining halls do a good job of providing alternatives.
