    -Think about/choose your classes ahead of time, and make 2 or 3 backup schedules in case your first choice doesn't work out -Make use of the gym, you'll never find one better -Use up all of your meal swipes at Outtakes as not to waste your parents' money/ have to run to the supermarket -Make sure you're not looking for the rah rah of a school with a football team, because there isn't one here/ NU lacks school spirit in a way -There seems to be an unspoken rule that everyone makes their freshman friends the first week of the year so put your best foot forward then, or you may end up lonely...this is when groups are formed

    Take advantage of everything that is around you. If there isn't something on campus for it, then Boston will provide. Look forward towards your career goals and learn about them by shadowing, internships, or informational interviewing.
