    1. As a student at UT, you should always join at least one club. This way you can get to know at least a small amount of people. If you're in a tight knit club then you'll end up going places, like parties, together. 2. Don't be afraid to approach people in you classes and introduce yourself. It's always good to have at least one friend in each class. 3. Create study groups with friends and study ahead of time before you go out and party that way you don't fall behind in your school work. 4. Go to your professors' office hours and introduce yourself. They always like to know that a student is actually interested in their class. 5. Don't be afraid to raise your hand during class and give out an answer. Even if it's the wrong answer, the professors like it when students participate. 6. Go to your professor if you have a question, even if it's a small one. Figuring out the answer sooner rather than later can save you several points on an exam. 7. Keep an agenda book and write down important dates. This way you don't get worried about the exam you forgot. 8. You're in college. You are here for a degree so don't forget that. Studying should always come first, but if you do have some free time then go hang out. Also, remember to have fun. read full review

    I know you are hearing all about how big UT is and how big the classes are and how big campus is. All this might be a little intimidating and even scary for you! But no worries! There will certainly be one or two classes that you will have that are just humongous! But there are also other classes that aren’t that bad. The trick first is to join a FIG! They are programs that reserve smaller classes for students who sign up and you get to go to many classes with the same group of people. I am part of a program that is similar to a FIG called Gateway. That's where I met 5 of my really good friends! Also, it will help a lot if you use websites such as pick-a-prof because the student reviews and ratings are mostly accurate! This website allows you to search your class and the teachers who have taught it and it also gives you a breakdown (in %) of the grades that the professor has given. You don't want to get stuck with a professor that you could have avoided by using the website! Lastly, when you are finally in the classroom, I suggest you bring a laptop to take notes because the teacher talks really fast. However, if you are easily distracted then it’s not such a good idea. Also, I have also been told and learned from experience that reviewing your notes just 5 minutes every day will help you remember everything a lot better than waiting until the night before a test to cram! One last thing! Sit in front! That way, 1. the professor knows that you have been to class all semester long so if any issues arise, they are more likely to help you out 2. you won’t be distracted and 3. You can hear better! Goodluck and have fun! read full review
