    1) You will not be able to skate through Mines like most of you did in high school. Block out time to actually study and be prepared for academics to finally challenge you. 2) Asking for help does not mean you are less intelligent. Every single person at this school has needed help so don't be afraid to utilize all the resources given to you. 3) Make sure you plan to do other stuff besides just school. There's a lot of really cool people on this campus. Joining clubs and activities is a great way to meet people and make upperclassmen friends who can help you out a lot. 4) You'll never be bored of your classes. If you need a challenge to keep you interested, this is the place for you. 5) TOUR! If you love campus and the vibes you're getting, listen to your gut feelings.

    CSM is not a party school. Make sure you are ready to study, the classes will challenge even the most intelligent. Tutor program is good.

    Study hard. Don't be afraid to get a bad grade. You have to go to this school for you, not because anyone else wants you there.
