    1) Adjusting to college is hard, but finding a routine and managing your time well will save you a lot of stress in the long run. 2) Be open to and prepared to interact with people from all walks of life. You discover things about the world that you would not have otherwise known 3) Partying is cool, but keep it in moderation 4) Don't be afraid to ask for help. Whether you're having adjustment issues, roommate tension, or dealing with serious depression, there are people around who can help. You just have to be open to it.

    I attend NYU's School of Engineering in Brooklyn and honestly, it couldn't be better. This isn't a college for students who are looking for a traditional type of campus where everything is next to each other in one area. NYU is literally in and of the city, which makes it great for students to get to know the outside world. It is also very beautiful in Brooklyn and Manhattan or where ever you go. Take the time to look around. Also, NYU is known for it's global community having campuses in both Shanghai and Abu Dhabi, so make sure to take full advantage and at least study one semester abroad. There are, of course, way more options than Shanghai and Abu Dhabi.

    It is not just about the grades, it is about doing activities that you dedicate yourself to and enjoy. Aim for 700 plus on Math and Writing on the SAT, it will help with class selection.
