    Don't be too stressed. It's actually quite fun once you're here. Live up GEWW because it doesn't happen twice and it's really a lot of fun if you just let yourself enjoy it. Other than that, be open to diversity and willing to work hard and you'll succeed. Note: the diversity is more than just skin tone and race, it's also the many different personalities and beliefs.

    STUDY! Do not wait until the last minute for ANYTHING. You may think just because you are very intelligent and your courses are only 100 or 200 level courses that you can just slip on by and you CANNOT. Each class is important, even the ones you do not think are important. Be honest with your professors. Stay in contact with them and interact with them.

    You must love your school and be willing to cheer and chant at every sporting event. Everyone is always friendly because that's just the way we roll in the south. Don't be afraid to meet new people, try new things, and get involved!
