    Prospective students should keep in mind that although this University seems large and intimidating due to its size and number of students, you will find yourself right at home due to the small class sizes, localization of classes, and opportunities on campus. Roommates and suite mates are great ways to make friends, and getting involved on campus early on will make your experience here that much greater. College is all about what you put in - the amount of effort you put in to making your experience here great by being open and getting involved is directly related to the quality of your college experience.

    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.
