    Talk to all of your professors in their office hours, talk to your advisers, talk to staff and faculty. Get known. Davis is a huge school, it is 100% your responsibility to set yourself aside from the other hundred students in your class. Also, there are tons of resources on campus and also tons of internships and jobs, check those out because they're a great way to stay involved at school.

    Bring a bike, but highly suggest not biking on the hour during your first week at Davis . . . it can be a little scary come bike circles. Befriend your TA, they'll be the ones grading your papers, tests, quizzes, etc.

    UC Davis is quick to respond to prospective students questioning financial aid, etc. I advise students to communicate with financial aid officers as soon as possible if there is a problem or question concerning your aid. Also, if UC Davis offers fly out program or STEP, be the first to apply in order to secure your spot. Be sure to ask specific questions in concern to your major (ask graduates or current students). I also suggest visiting the college campus to officially feel for the campus ambience (and around city of Davis as well).

    Do not procrastinate! Stay on top of everything you need to get done and make sure to get out and make friends. Find the right balance in life, between friends, family, school, and jobs/internships. It's definitely possible if you know how to manage your time.
