    Nobody told me this before I found out for myself, but you can get around campus without a bike. It only takes me 10 minutes to get to my classes from my dorm. Everyone will tell you this, but go to office hours. If you are like me and you do not go to office hours, take advantage of the peer tutors at the Academic Advising Center.

    Be prepared for the hectic schedule that comes along with going to a UC. Develop good habits and get rid of bad ones such as procrastinating. If you have been admitted and are planning to attend, go to orientation. It gives you a chance to explore the campus, plan what classes to take, and meet other people who will be going to school with you. Take advantage of every resource and learn how to network.

    If you messed up in 9th grade, you still have a chance to do great in 10th and 11th. Those are the years that UC's really look at. However, don't slack of in 9th or 12th. All years in high school are important.

    Get to know the campus from the get-go. Getting around is not hard once you know where you're going, but it can take a minute to orient yourself if you haven't explored yet. Go to the professors office hours- everyone says this for a reason. Talk to them, get to know them and let them get to know you. It helps so, so much when it's crunch time and you need help. Use the available tutoring. In high school, be involved in things around campus- it looks good and gives you some experience with getting to know new people.

    Stay on top of everything, even if you think you understood lecture, go over it twice or three times for good measure the SAME day! Don't give up on your education, once you're in, stay in and prosper!
