    I suggest that freshmen who are pursuing anything chemistry-related or engineering should live in the Tercero dorms. The professors' office hours are located nearby and it is VERY convenient to get to. It is also a good idea to arrive to the chemistry lab early on the first day or else you get replaced. Utilize office hours and the tutors! There are great tutors in the dorms and at South Hall.

    Don't get distracted by the rumors that there's nothing to do in Davis. Never once have I been bored! The school has over 600 different clubs and organizations you can join, and the town itself is very quirky and full of hole-in-the-wall places you might enjoy. I would definitely recommend visiting the city and the campus, and taking a tour (don't just take it from me, take it from some of the many students and parents I've given tours to--our tour is one of the best!). The city and the school has a lot to offer.

    Practice riding a bike if you haven't in a while. Davis is a large campus and if you live on campus, and possibly off campus, bike riding is the main mode of transportation. Be prepared for hot weather in the spring and summer and cold, rainy winters. Try to visit before you choose to attend to see the campus and surrounding areas as well.

    Get a bike! The campus is definitely walkable, but getting to class in 5 minutes is one of the most convenient things. Many people complain about nice bikes getting stolen, but I think getting a nice bike is a good purchase that will make a difference in the long run.

    Always go to office hours! No matter what subject you are taking, going to office hours allows you to make yourself known to the professor and helps you stay on track with your grades in that class. Professors are incredibly understanding and they care about your progress in their class. Office hours is another way to have that one on one setting with your professor when you have a huge lecture hall with another 400 and plus students. Also do not miss out on other tutoring opportunities as well, especially if you are majoring in the science field. Tutoring along with office hours will definitely keep you away from ever being in academic probation and maintaining your GPA in great standing. College is nothing like high school, you have to work harder academic wise and be wiser in your time management. So this is my advice to prospective students, don't wait until the end of the quarter to visit your professor in office hours, start showing up within the first weeks of class and if you still need extra help go to the tutoring hall!
