    -Don't be scared to visit your teacher's offices. They have offices and visiting hours for a reason. -Diversity is key in being comfortable. -Be open to trying the different classes that you may not have known were available (art, film, ceramics, etc.)

    Don't wait until deadlines,when your professor gives you the syllabus make sure you are actively planning ahead. In the wise words of Benjamin Franklin If you fail to prepare you will prepare to fail! Be mindful of your attitudes. These are the people who will be writing recommendation letters for you when your nearing senior year and you don't want to leave a sour taste in their mouth when they think of you. Be genuine but be open to growth. Everything about your first year will lay the groundwork for the rest of your semesters here at John Jay College #GoBloodHounds !!!! <3

    Get involved! Since it's a commuter school, you can quickly feel isolated or out of place if you don't get involved around campus. Also, make sure that you ask questions and speak to your professors because they are always there to help. If you don't ask, they won't know how to help you!

Join clubs, organizations and events that encourage you to meet people and learn new things. John Jay College is a great place to learn what degree/ career you want to pursue and how to get there.
