    Sign up for classes as soon as possible! Although this is great advice for any college, it's definitely one to be taken seriously. They cannot work with your schedule if you do not set down the mold for them to follow. Also, arrive on time or early and without a phone in your face. You paid thousands of dollars to go to school, don't waste it scrolling on social media.

    there are lots of clubs/fraternities that are major-specific, these are great networking opportunities! also, don't try to skimp on the parking pass. finally, if you don't like to go out a lot, this is a great school. if you have a heavy course load (nursing, double-majors, etc) this is a good school. if you like to go out at night, find somewhere else. if you want to go do something, you'll have to drive over to houma (about 20 minutes south) or to new orleans (about 40-60 minutes).

    please have your fafsa correct, because if not the process to get it corrected is so long. They add plenty of fees in there, that the students don't even use. For first semester freshman, it is a good idea to stay in Ellender.

    Sitting in the front of class is encouraged. Being in the front allows you to build a relationship with your teacher. If you are an active learner in the classroom you can actively study in your dorm room.

    It's a small campus, which is great! But always bring an umbrella! (Somehow I always forget mine when it rains!) Take a campus tour on a gorgeous day at Nicholls and you won't regret it. The scenery around the campus is heavenly.
