    Don't come in thinking you can get away with what you did in high school. Classes are actually tough.

    Firstly, researching is your friend. Research the schools you're interested in and begin early. This fact is especially useful for those who have no idea where they want to go. I didn't know Baylor was my school until I began researching it. Secondly, visit the campus. If you love it, visit more than once. You really need to get a feel for it. The campus atmosphere is more important to your success in school than you than you think. If you are comfortable then you can focus and excel as you should. Lastly (and maybe the most essential to giving your wallet a break), never end your search for scholarships! Always search and apply to as many scholarships as you can during weekends, breaks, and other down-time periods.

If you find yourself having difficulty in any class there are tons of free resources on campus and even attending your professors office hours will definitely help.
