    Please stay aware of your financial aid award that includes taking loans if you really need them. Also, really search up and look for the resources that are of great importance to you and absolutely abuse them because you are paying for them. This might be obvious but you must go to class and if you are not able to be present in one, not saying that you can make excuses every time you do not feel like going, you should be in communication with a classmate, teacher assistant, or even the teacher to provide you with the material you did not receive. Don't panic! Search for help, such as counseling, to make your transition of care of your homesickness. Make the university your home.

    Every incoming freshman should know that college is not the same as high school, so enjoy your summer! You are all on your own, and the choices you make will determine your future. Make sure you read the assigned chapter before lecture and study over the weekends. For those who are from South California, try not to go how as often, and use that time at Riverside to study. Do not talk while in lecture because it annoys those who are trying to learn and dont go out partying all the time. Use your four years at Riverside wisely, work hard now and party later. Be productive and take courses that will go toward your major, plan ahead.
