    If you are living on campus its easy to get side traced, and not attend class. Don't get to fed up in partying and social life, without knowing how to manage your time. Attend class and do your homework and you'll have time to have fun. GET INVOLVED, a lot of people find out they have more time on their hands then they thought, so get involved in something that interest you.

    Always plan ahead! Spaces for classes are very competitive here, so make sure you sign up for the earliest freshman orientation possible, or do whatever you can to get advanced registration for every semester. Immediately search for the Facebook group of your graduating class - many questions are answered there by your peers and upperclassmen. Over the summer, look for any programs offered by your college because that is exactly how you get a head start on your social life in college!
