    Take yourself out of your comfort zone and try something new! I went to college unsure what I wanted but joined a learning community, sorority and am on the club lacrosse team. I am able to balance all the activities and get honors grades because I make use of the free tutoring and learning community resources.

    I know you hear it all the time, but honestly get involved. Jumping in to the club life so soon was the best thing I could have done. I cant tell you how many of my floor mates just stayed in their rooms first semester, because they were too scared to get involved. Don't be scared to do what you love with people who love the same things. I promise you will not regret getting involved.

    -Don't skip class unless you absolutely have to like for an exam or family emergency. -Get involved in clubs. There are plenty to choose from! -When scheduling classes try to get a lunch break somewhere in the middle. -Also don't over load on classes -I definitely recommend a part time job while in school.
