    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.

    Be friendly and outgoing, immerse yourself in clubs and activities, if you're like me and aren't a hipster/EDM lover/apathetic teenager then you should try to find like-minded people because everyone else sucks.

    Students planning to come to Seattle, if they do not already know the place, should very well make sure to plan for an adventure. Seattle University is at the heart of Seattle and does an amazing job of blending in. Make sure you bring comfortable, warm clothes and have a pair of shoes that you don't mind walking everywhere in. The campus is small enough to get around by walking which eliminates the need for any bikes and boards, but it will indeed benefit you. Freshman 15? Seeing as you walk pretty much everywhere you go you may actually be losing 15. A big tip is to be open to the city around you. The city is absolutely amazing and is less than a mile or two away! You can find all the shopping places you need, so you definitely wouldn't need to bring you entire house with you. Although it may be wonderful here the whether is extremely bipolar. One day it may be sunny, and the next it can rain. One year may have snowfall, and the next Seattle decides not to have a White Christmas. Make sure you love the cold when you come here because you will easily start to feel like cool drafts if you haven't already!
