    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!

    Be prepared for the heat as it tends to get very hot. If you can, live on campus, it is a fun experience and you get more homework done.

    Visit before accepting. While this is a great school, it is not a great fit for everyone and that is where all the anger at UCR comes from. Check out the UCR Rants page on Facebook to get a hint of what life is like here.

    Live in the dorms as freshmen! Also in the consecutive years to follow, if not commuting from home, live in campus apartments. They are walking distance from campus and affordable! Don't be in a rush to determine your major. Take your first year to test the waters by trying out different classes and seeing what you like. USE ALL RESOURCES TO YOUR ADVANTAGE! UCR provides many resources, such as the career center, the well center, LGBT center, whichever applies to you, USE it! You pay different fees for these reasons and it would be a shame to go to waste. Attend as many sports games as possible. The energy at the games is incredible and it is always fun to see our mascot Scotty the bear grooving out at the games. Take your classes seriously. No matter how easy they are, always study hard. It is a good feeling to see your hard work pay off. And most importantly, HAVE FUN in college! You'll never be able to experience it again (except for grad school, which is different!)
