    i would definitely recommend attending a community college prior to coming to u.c. davis. i completed my general education requirements at a community college, and it saved me a lot of money and it was an excellent transition from high school to a full university. it is also important to speak with a counselor early so that you can make a plan to graduate on time. also pay careful attention to what your major graduation requirements are; the animal biology program requires the completion of a senior practicum project and i was not aware of this when i applied to the program.

    Think positive. Even though I was on the waitlist for this school, I was accepted last minute and was given the opportunity to attend my dream school. Continue working hard with our chin up and know that in whatever college or whatever career pathway you may choose, you can succeed! Just work hard and maintain a positive outlook.

    It is important to get help when one realizes that they are struggling, and not wait until they receive an assignment grade back. It also helps to form study groups, especially with people who live nearby the person in need of help, as it is easier to keep in touch with those rather than say those who live a greater distance away. Going to professors office hours helps so much, and getting help from their teaching assistants(TA's). This allows the student to not only do better, but also get to know the professor on a one-on-one basis for future letters of recommendation and possibly internships.

    1) Join clubs and organizations. PLEASE, otherwise you might have a hard time making connections with people. 2) Talk to your professors. They truly love helping students out. 3) Start talking to your batch-mates before you get to Davis, because believe it or not, you will have a super hard time making friends if you don't do this. When I walked in, I saw so many people already having their squads just based on Facebook conversations. 4) Explore all the events, clubs, places - the university has so many opportunities for you to be who you want to be. 5) Remember college is a new start. Just do whatever makes you happy and discover yourself. 6) You're going to miss home food the MOST.

    Even though it seems like it, it's not essential for you to have a bike. You can get around just find walking or taking the bus. But if you're like me and need to get across campus in five minutes, a bike is your best bet. Another thing: don't skip out on tutoring, especially if you're struggling. It can make or break your grade. If you're still struggling, go to office hours. Professors can tell when you're making an effort to learn.
