    Check out regional campuses! They are not any less than a main campus! I highly recommend Murray State University's regional Crisp Center in Paducah, KY!

    Start strong academically. Even if you don't start strong, you can still finish well, so don't give up! Call your parents regularly--they care about you! Get adequate sleep. Get to class early. And take the earliest lunch break you can. Waterfield Library gets more crowded as Finals approach, so plan accordingly. Find what you love to do and jump into it with all you have. You won't regret that.
