    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.

    Live in presidential courtyard or in the new dorm being built now (today is April 10, 2014, I'm not sure when it will be ready.) Come into school as undecided unless you're really sure what you want to study. I didn't declare a major until Junior year, and I'm still graduating on time. Get involved with extracurricular activities early. You will make great connections and a lot of new friends.

    Do not be intimidated by the size of the university! Yes it is huge, but after a week here you will know the campus pretty well. Also, make sure you do scholarships!!! This is a pretty expensive University and every bit of money helps tremendously! When it comes to buying your books for class, do not go to the UT bookstore!! Go somewhere off campus, or buy them online! It is so much cheaper and believe me, you want to save as much money as possible! If you're coming here completely alone (meaning you don't know anyone else coming to UT) don't worry, you and your roommate will get along just fine and you WILL make friends in all your classes. This is a wonderful University and it will start to feel like home to you very quickly!

    Encourage others to be versatile. DO NOT limit yourself to the immediate people around you, there is lots to learn from others that are much different than you. Be prepared to actually GROW up! There is no more relying on teachers to guide you through the course, then is your money spent, this is your grade you have to earn it.
