    Make sure you get out of the habit of procrastinating. And since the diversity is amazing here, be open to meeting new people and having new experiences.

    The biggest tip I can say for prospective students is to come visit us! There is so much going on around campus 24/7 and so many people willing to interact with you, its an amazing experience. I was very skeptical about transferring to such a big University after being in small 20 person classrooms at a community college, but I do not regret making the decision to attend. If you get an email with your registration date for classes REMEMBER THAT DATE! Classes go like crazy and you definitely have to be on top of your game. Also, never give up. My first semester at this university was draining the life out of me. I studied every single day, was practicing old exams every week day and never missed a class. I struggled, bad. But after you get the hang of your classes and put forth the effort in the work you'll see a world of a difference and it will get better, trust me.

    Don't be overwhelmed by the number of students in classes at first because through the years it will decrease. Also, meet people and get involved!

    - Visit before you decide to enroll - Don't apply unless you are okay with cold weather - Although the population is huge, it doesn't ever seem overwhelming- they organize classes pretty well - Be sure to get someone to explain how the meal plan works AS SOON AS you get on-campus
