    Make sure to know who a Professor teaches their class. All Professors teach differently and you do not want to be stuck in class that you find hard to learn in. UT gives has many events and services that help you with academic, health, finances, and future careers. Also their events give out free food and stuff. Make sure you don't miss deadlines or start the day before. Start early so you don't rush to fix problems on your applications.

    Try to stay at least a day ahead. READ BEFORE CLASS! If you can't teach the material, then you don't know it.

    Plan on comfortable shoes and plenty of walking. Remember if you get the penthouse units at Dobie 2021 Guadalupe there are 500 stairs to the top, Elevators go out at least once a month. The pools are Las Vegas Style hotel size pools and very enticing during the warm weather which averages at 70 degrees year round.

    UT is a second chance to better yourself, whether that be academically, mentally, emotionally or socially. For you high school seniors coming in, college is truly different than high-school. In high school you are expected to be an adult but still get treated like a kid. In college you are treated like an adult. Specifically at UT you are given freedom, while mentors you're given are there to guide and encourage you if you struggle.

    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.
