    Perspective students: You should be aware of Purdue's well-known reputation for being a challenging university and fully embrace what that means. Come prepared to be immersed in an atmosphere that is very academically demanding and even more fulfilling. You really do reap the rewards of all of the hard work you put in here. To that end, you need to attend all classes and focus because not only do you need to maintain high grades, but the information you learn at Purdue is invaluable and you will use it for the rest of your life. Also, you need to get involved. Purdue is known for being a large campus and becoming part of organizations and groups around campus is the best way to turn the campus into smaller communities that will eventually become extremely important support systems. Step out of your comfort zone, as well. This may seem cliche, however, it is the most effective way to ensure that you are moving forward and improving yourself. You'll never learn what you're capable of if you never attempt anything new. So be brave! College is all about discovering yourself and consequently bettering that person. You can do it and good luck!

    STAY FOCUSED. Try to stay on top of your work so that when professors and TAs give you a break, you can actually relax. Work hard but don't forget to enjoy your college experience. Try to participate in as many school traditions as possible. It increases your school pride and helps you feel apart of the Purdue family. Take it easy; don't rush your time here.

    Make sure Purdue (or any college for that matter) is the place you want to go. If you visit campus and it doesn't feel right, its not the place for you. Find the college that makes you feel at home (or feels right) the second you step on campus. It'll make a difference in the long run. Once you're on campus, get to know people! Having a support system is key to succeeding in college. Your RA is there to help you and give you advice when you need it, and your friends are there to support you and help you unwind. Find the people who make a difference in your life and stick with them.
