    - Make good use of your time. - Buy the 14 or 16 Meal Plan. They are much more flexible than the 21. - If you have the chance to go to SI (Supplemental Instruction), go to it. It's a godsend. - There is a vast support network that is available to you at any time. If you screw up or need some help, don't be afraid to look or ask for it. - If you're bringing a car, shell out the money for a spot in one of the garages. The cheaper option is to pay for a decal that will allow you to park in a Student Parking area IF YOU CAN FIND ONE. Trust me, the chances of that are really low.

    Make sure that you know something about football, because everyone will be frustrated with you if you aren't a football fan, like me. Also, try new things with organizations and groups to venture outside of your comfort zone because you'll meet some amazing people.

    My biggest recommendation is to get involved on campus, whether it's through a job, volunteering, a sorority/fraternity, or other clubs. It's a great way to meet new people. When scheduling classes, try to avoid scheduling all your classes in a row. I did that my first semester and realized that I never had any time to eat lunch. Definitely go to the gym as much as possible, not only because it's the nicest gym I've ever seen, but also because the food here is all pretty fattening and the freshman 15 is not a myth. Lastly, stay on top of your studies. Even though a lot of times you only have two exams per semester, you'll get to the final and realize you won't be able to sleep for a week straight in order to memorize everything. Then you'll end up failing all your exams due to lack of sleep. Yes, that actually happens.
