    Don't be intimidated by the size of the campus. Carry around a small map and check out where each of your classes are located before class starts.

    - 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.
