    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.

    My biggest tip is to go check out the campus and see the atmosphere. I think taking a tour of the campus during a normal school day will really give you a feel for the place. Hey, you can also decide to sit in on a lecture if you want. Also, I recommend that people dorm. It is the fastest way to make friends and trust me when I say that it will be one of the best experiences of your life! Often times its difficult to meet people in classes, which is why people need to put themselves out there to really meet people who they can relate to.

    Get to know your professors and TAs. They are crucial to your understanding of the material. A familiar face to a professor or TA can be the difference between a B+ and an A-. Use your resources. There is so many places where you can go for help. There is tutoring, there are great study places, and amazing classmates. Get to know people. Stay in contact. However, don't forget you're also young. Don't forget to have fun!
