    1. Don’t be afraid to start up a conversation. Everyone I’ve met here is nice and wants to interact with new people. Plus, there are all different types of majors so you’re bound to learn about something new and different! 2. Get involved. I didn’t sign up for anything in my first semester because I was afraid of getting overwhelmed, but I wish I had. Find a club that sounds fun or ask your professors about research opportunities; you won’t regret it. 3. Talk to your professors! The professors here are super nice and accommodating and genuinely interesting to get to know. Chat with them after class, ask what they’re working on, go to their tutoring sessions... it will help you in class but also give you an opportunity to work on interesting projects or get connected in the professional world. 4. Build good study habits. If you find a study strategy that works earlier on in the semester, then you will thank yourself later when you don’t have to cram for an exam the next day. 5. Buy snacks. If we are being honest, the dining hall food leaves a bit to be desired and you’re going to get hungry after already using your meal swipe. Having a little something in the dorm helps a lot, especially when you don’t want to get up and walk to another building. 6. Use the gym. There are a lot of fun classes they offer at the gym which makes exercising a lot more bearable, and you meet new people. 7. The library is amazing. There are a bunch of different kinds of study spaces and it’s right in the middle of campus so it’s a great place to kill time between classes and still be productive. 8. Get ahead in online homework. For a lot of classes, the online homework is short and relatively simple. I’ve found that setting aside time and getting ahead makes it way less stressful when you have a bunch of big assignments due in other classes. 9. Explore the city. Philly is really cool and there’s a bunch of events you can go to throughout the year. Try and make it out there a couple times. 10. Use your ID to get discounts. A lot of places have student discounts that you won’t know about, don’t be afraid to ask and save some cash.

    Use your resources to their fullest extent! Always talk to your peers, academic advisor, professors, and the Dean is only a email, phone call, or office visit away!
