    Sometimes the classes only have a 5-10 minute gap between them and it is recommended to choose your classes using a map of the campus to avoid running from one side of the campus to another since there are professors who dock off points for being tardy.

    Make sure to work extremely hard so you will make the Dean's List. With the Dean's List, you will be able to register earlier than other students and guarantee your place in the course you need. I advice future students to get involved and join different organizations. They are a great way to meet new people.

    1. Plan ahead, see an adviser to see what classes you need for your degree. If you are paying completely for your education, extra classes that you might not need may be hard on your wallet. 2. Get early to class, although parking is plenty full, sometimes its difficult to find close parking, which might take you a couple of extra minutes to walk to class. 3.Always be aware of due dates in all your classes for your assignments, mark them down on a calender. Sometimes we might focus more on a group project and forget about the essay that is due for the other class. Be prepared, some classes will be more demanding than others.
