    Bring lots of coats for the winter. Join a sorority or fraternity for endless networking. Get as close to your professors as possible.

    Don't be afraid to ask anyone questions, everyone is very friendly. We're like a community and no one will turn you away. Take advantage of meal cards and even workout at the gym or swim in the indoor pool. The school offers so much so don't miss out!

    My number one tip for prospective students would be to spend your freshman year completing general studies requirements. I recommend this even for students who have declared a major or know what they would like to study. There is nothing more frustrating than beginning your FINAL semester and still having general studies requirements to complete. My second tip is to meet your academic adviser frequently- at least twice a semester. This is especially important when it comes to scheduling as, not matter how well you believe you are scheduling your classes on your own, chances are you probably aren't. Advisers generally know best when it comes to scheduling especially since your adviser will most likely be teaching one or more of the classes you will be taking. My final tip is to remember to enjoy the next two-four years. Although college is a stressful and hectic time it is also an awesome and rewarding time. It is the perfect time to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. It's also the perfect time to figure out the person you wish to become and reflect on who you've been. I encourage you to try new things. Take a sculpting class, attend a seminar for a class you're not even taking, try out for the semester's play. You never know what passions or talents you may have.
