    Join clubs! That is the best way to get involved on campus and begin to meet many of your best friends! Go to school events such as football games because that is where you get the experiences you will cherish!

    UT is a great school, I am so happy to be here. It is pretty big though and if you don't get involved in some sort of activity on campus it can sometimes be easy to get lost in the crowd. We have a thriving Greek life on campus but that is definitely not your only option for social interaction. There's constantly stuff happening on campus and it's really easy to get involved! The only other thing I can tell you is DO NOT SKIP CLASS. Trust me, it can make the difference between earning an A or a C in a class.

    Apply for scholarships it is always worth it. When you are choosing your classes base it off of professor ratings on ratemyprofessor (so worth it) it will determine your success here. And the first exam is always the hardest, learning the proper way to study is a process.

    A couple tips for prospective students are to be ready to not have grades handed to you, if there is a grade you want you have to work hard for it. Also, you should be ready to go out and put yourself out there because there are hundreds of opportunities and they aren't even being taken advantage of which leaves them open for future students.
