    ALWAYS make your studies yo number one priority and NEVER procrastinate for whatever reason because you will end up suffering from the consequences later. Definitely be ready and prepared regardless so that way you know what to expect and if you meet new people, don't be shy. Being in college is going to expose you to many different people of different cultures, so try and open yourself to new things.

    Make sure that you come prepared, whether it's for class or for an event because there's always something new every day. Secondly, don't be afraid to meet new people. That's what college life is about and for you to step out of your comfort zone and try new things and see what's out there.

    Join clubs and go to events! I assure you can find at least one exciting event every week with many opportunities to make friends. Try the delicious food spots around campus such as Red Hawk Diner and the cafe in University Hall. Teachers are extremely involved and provide a lot of assistance. I am never hesitant to ask for help and the workload is fair.

    Look into the programs and think about Rutgers. A lot of Montclair's better programs like applied math, education, and computer science are outclassed by other local state schools like Rutgers Newark, Rutgers New Brunswick, and NJIT. There is also a lot of great opportunity to work on very specific subjects like ferrofluids in the fluid dynamics lab. The faculty there is brilliant and experienced, as are many others if you're willing to do your homework and look at the research they've done.

    Talk to your Professors if you don't understand what the homework assignment is asking for.
