    Explore EVERYTHING. Join clubs you wouldn't usually join. Take weird classes that are outside of your comfort zone to fulfill graduation requirements. Get to know your professors. Explore the world though internships and study abroad opportunities. You can do it all at Dickinson, so why not do it all?

    Put a lot of thought into your personal statement. It really does play a big factor in getting into the school. Don't write it like a regular school essay. Maybe make it almost a narrative. Be willing to take advantage of study abroad. Most students do and it would be a shame to miss out on the great opportunity.

    Go on an overnight. I host prospective students, and I really wish I would have done one before coming here. It really gives a prospective students a good day in the life feel for what Dickinson will be like, and it also offers a good opportunity to 1) stand out to admissions and 2) ask questions you may not have thought of before or were too embarrassed to ask in front of your parents.

    You can be as busy as you'd like. The classes that you will have in the first semester will be challenging, especially if you have never studied in a boarding/residential community setting before. Even if you have, this is college, so you really are left to your own devices. Knowing that, you should be careful when enrolling into clubs. Make sure that you do not overdo it. I know it sounds, perhaps, exciting for those of you who want to be involved or make friends. However, make sure that you get a feel of the load of your work and your study habits before committing into one. Some people get really overwhelmed, and then cranky by mid-year because of this. Don't get lulled into the busy-ness. Pace yourselves. Also, never be scared to ask professors for explanations, extra time, etc. They are really helpful and accomodating most of the time. You should spend less time worrying about not turning something in, and actually DO something that could probably save your grade!
