    Do not forget to create a professional UT e-mail. It is important to separate work and play. The buses in Austin are your friend, some even run until 2 in the morning! Tight on money? Many clubs offer free food in meetings and there is an app on both android and iphone called "Hooked" to help students find great deals. Never trust a printer. Always print your essays the night before or earlier. The University Co-op on campus is extremely expensive, so seek alternative ways to purchase your books before going there. You are what you eat, so don't forget to eat healthy or your grades could suffer. Lastly, please seek help. Don't be afraid to ask your professor, friends, or peers a question.

    In the first weeks there step out of your comfort zone and meet as many people as possible. Do all of the "geeky freshman events", and definitely collect all the free t-shirts as possible. This sets you up for a positive experience and a greater chance that you will make new friends and find the perfect organization.

    Be sure to do your assigned readings, as class discussions and assignments will draw heavily from those readings. Never be afraid to contact your TAs or professors whenever you need help understanding a concept or if you just want to give your thoughts about a lecture or subject material. When out of class, be sure to walk with a group of friends, if you're walking at night or off-campus. Prioritize trying to strike a balance between school work/employment and leisure. Self care is extremely important for maintaining your mental health, which effects everything from your grades to your relationships.
