    Try to figure out what subject you want to major in early. Some of the required classes you take for your major also cover your university required subjects. Do not room with your friends! Rooming with a friend from high school doesn't help you branch out to make new friends. You also don't have a fresh start, your friend will always bring up those high school memories and college will not be college, it will be a continuation of high school and we do not want that! Make sure you make a friend in every single class. It helps when you miss class to have someone who you can get notes from, and believe me, you will miss class. Find a study place that is right for you and make sure to find another if you start to not like that one. You are allowed to change your habits to make sure that you are productive. Be proud that you could recognize it, but solve the problem.

    Go to class, focus on the lectures, and do the readings. Even completely incompetent freshman level teachers can be overridden by studying the book.

    Be prepared for wide diversity and what may seem like relaxed policies at times among other students. Don't be afraid to speak out against or for a cause. Your opinion will be valued!

    Don't slack off in your classes. The professors notice, so if you're hoping for letters of recommendation or any sort of leniency in your grade, work hard. Even if you don't do well, they will notice if you're trying. UTILIZE THEIR OFFICE HOURS.

    Western may not have it all, but it comes pretty close. It has over 150 majors and minors, and every student is given an adviser to help plan schedules, give academic advice, or just chat. The majority of classes, even the required general courses, are under 50 students. Professors really care about students and go out of their way to be available for help. In addition to great academics, there are hundreds of clubs and extracurricular activities for students to partake in. Music, sports, movies, food, politics, whatever your interests are, there is sure to be a group to connect with. We even have a quidditch team! Located in Bellingham, a medium sized city, there are plenty of things to do and places to go. Not to mention the gorgeous landscape, surrounded by forests, mountains, and ocean. Western isn't just a place to learn, its a place to live.
