    It's okay if you don't know what you want to do right off the bat, try filling up some Hamline Plan letters to find something you're more passionate about. In terms of First Year Seminars, pick something that will interest you, don't worry too much about whether or not it's writing intensive. Pick based on your interests. If you have college credit from AP, IB, PSEO or CIS, transfer it in as soon as you can, and make sure, before you come here, that it will all go through. The higher the standing you have, the sooner you can register (which is super, super helpful). Alongside registering, take a J-term, you're already paying for it and some of the topics are absolutely fascinating. Finally, even if you're a commuter like I am, get yourself involved in the community. Don't be afraid to join a club or anything because you're worried you won't have enough time. You need to take time for yourself and do what you like to do for fun, don't just focus all of your energy on academics all of the time.

    Hamline is pretty expensive so apply for as many scholarships as you can, thankfully they are pretty great about helping you pay off and debts you might incur. Also, don't be afraid to talk to the staff, chances are, they want to talk to you too!
