    Be sure that you know you are up for the academic rigor. It is much harder than high school, but it is also a lot more interesting! Be prepared to take a class just for fun, and know its totally fine if you know nothing or everything on the subject going into the class, odds are you'll enjoy it no matter what.

    Don't be afraid to ask your professor for help! Start studying for exams/quizzes early, instead of cramming the night before.

    Use a planner, it will save your life, and help manage college life easier. It's okay to not know what you want to do when coming to Gustavus, even if you change your major, they will try their best to get you out in four years.

    This is a great school that encourages excellence as well as involvement. Be prepared to work hard to get the grades that you want. Be prepared to be busy and involved, because you will want to join numerous clubs and activities. In addition, do not be concerned about boredom, although Gustavus is located in a small town, there are always plenty of on-campus activities every day.
