    standardized tests are important and will help you to receive grants. Also try to learn more about yourself. Learn which study habits are best for you.

    I would highly recommend studying a lot more than you did in high school! When teachers say that college is going to be a lot different than high school, they were absolutely right. I can't stress how important it is to keep up-to-date on studying and classwork. Teachers won't be around to remind you to finish your math homework, read last night's chapter, etc., so it's important to always keep a calendar of all of your work and tests. Also, be social and friendly. Making friends in college was a struggle at first, but having friends is so crucial to your happiness away from home. It can get very lonely at times, but knowing you have a friend who lives on the same campus as you do is awesome! Make time to do things off campus too, because you definitely need to go explore a little off campus! My very last tip is to always be safe. Always always pay attention to your surroundings, and if you see ANYTHING suspicious call the police and they will come get you and take care of the situation.

    Be prepared for the traffic and bipolar weather. Also, the classes are definitely hit or miss with the teachers sometimes, so I highly suggest looking at 'rate my professor' and asking other people their opinion when signing up for classes.

    Definitely try to get in the Honors College. The housing is so much better, the professors are top notch, and the classes are much smaller
