    Always remember to be on time for your class enrolling appointment! It is the best way to into the classes that you want, due to the demand for classes at this university. The University of Nevada-Reno is also a very friendly school, so don't be afraid to ask if you don't know. Even if you dread meeting new people, saying hi to the person that sits next to you on the first day will most likely form your first college friendship!

    Make sure to attend every class, or you will fall behind for sure. Involve yourself in a variety of clubs. Attend the fun events that happen around campus; there is usually free food!

    For prospective students coming in as freshmen, I would suggest they hit the ground running, meaning they should start studying hard from the beginning by taking advantage of the resources the school offers. There is a tutoring center, a writing center, countless computer labs, and an endless supply of books (both from UNR and surrounding schools). While the first year of college can be very fun, make sure to stay focused on the ultimate goal, to work towards a degree and future career. Also, as my parents always told me, you are who you hang out with, so choose a good group of friends right from the start. If you surround yourself with morally stable and responsible kids, their habits will positively affect you. Finally, become organized. Invest in a planner to keep track of assignments, and know how many food swipes or wolf bucks you have on your card. No one is constantly watching over you anymore, so scheduling time and budgeting money will be important skills.

    Joining clubs or Greek life is a good idea if you're looking to meet new people and have a fun time. There is a mix of good and bad professors, but the good ones really are great and helpful. Overall, it's not a bad place to go to school at all!

    Prospective students should sign up for the Nevada Bound program, or any program similar, that allows the student to visit the campus with his/her parents, ask the tour guide questions, and meet with different professors. This student should look at the list of majors offered at the university, especially if he/she is interested in a specific major that the University of Nevada, Reno offers, such as pre-veterinarian studies, engineering, or speech language pathology. Ask any friends that have attended the school any questions that you can think of, and do not be afraid to ask the ambassadors/ tour guides questions when they come up.
