    Go behind Admin to see the beautiful garden walk. QFC is absolutely the place to go for groceries--the cave is expensive unless you're desperate. It rains, get over it and buy a North Face shell like everyone else, we have them because they work. The line for the wok is always worth it, the line for the world area isn't. CAPS won't be very helpful so get a good group of friends if you can. Search around to find good people, even if they don't live on your floor. This school will throw you financial aid, don't be afraid to ask for more.

    Be prepared to have out-of-the-box, social discussions in and out of class. Don't worry about food, SU has the best food.

    Get involved on campus to ensure a great college experience. I joined as many clubs as I could my freshman year and it was an amazing way to meet people who were passionate about the same things as I was.

    There are no tips that can help a student prepare for life at college. No matter how prepared you are to face independent life away form your friends and family, rigorous homework that keeps you up late, and new people, tips will not help you. College is something you have to experience and work at constantly. You can prepare your brain for something, but never your heart. The one thing you should remember is to make new mistakes and learn from them, not always make the same mistakes.
