    Make sure you are well equipped for winter because it gets really cold. Attend your discussion classes, you might learn more than in the actual lecture or just clear your doubts it is better for those used to small size classes. Make sure to read the syllabus for classes, pay close attention to the dates because teachers wont be reminding you.

    1.) Join an LLC to help you assimilate into the school and advance you in your major 2.) Do all your homework, and keep on top of your work because your teachers do not remind you of homework and due dates anymore 3.) Do not join an underground frat; their hazing processes are ridiculous 4.) Find a balance between your social life and your academic life and do not forget what you're at school for 5.) Do not spend your munch money all at once; learn to ration it 6.) Crossgates mall becomes one of the only places to go to off campus... pick up some hobby's 7.) Use your libraries!!! Perfect places for studying and doing homework and even meeting places 8.) Join clubs! ABLE and ALPHA are great business clubs to join

    1. Study for all test. Even anything that is as simply as a quiz. 2. If you are confused about something, always email your professor or go to there office hours. 3. Make friends in your classes. Its easier to get work done and to catch up when you miss class.

    At first glance, it may seem like a big, and at times confusing place. It certainly seemed that way to me and my friends during orientation. However, give yourself a week. Once you get used to the environment, you will realize it's not that complicated after all. There are these things called tunnels which are tunnels that run under the entire main campus. So, when it's time for winter to get ugly, which it will, you run from your quad to the tunnels and you are mostly safe from there. There is one catch: the tunnels don't connect to the main university; but with a couple of weeks into your entry, you will become quite skilled in getting from one building to another to your benefit. When the college tours say there is always something to do, there is! Most of the time something is happening right in front of the campus center. They give out free things, so make sure to always keep an eye out!
