    As a first year student i'm really glad i chose to take humanities core and i'd recommend the course to incoming first years, it knocks out a lot of GEs and isn't as bad as other kids made it sound. when it comes to friends clubs and living on campus really helped, i made a lot of friends at one of the resource centers on campus and also by getting involved in student government. personally i wish i had started working first quarter, i took a break to make the transition period from high school to college easier but ended up feeling like i wasted time not working. ooh and stay on the lookout for free bluebooks/scantrons, i ended needing to buy mine but they have them free a lot if ur on the lookout. overall starting life at UCI has been going really well :) (btw the $2 boba isn't worth it, always get fresh boba)

    Enjoy your first year because it goes by fast. If school starts getting rough go to office hours and don't let yourself fall behind. Lastly, expand yourself beyond just UCI and go out into the surroundings cities if you can.

    make sure that you start with a good amount of units (from ap classes, transfer, etc.) so that your enrollment window isn't on the last day(s).

    tips for prospective students/ things that i wish i did differently earlier on: 1. uci is a competitive school. don't ever compare yourself or your academics to anyone else's grades or classes. focus on yourself and you will be successful. 2. make friends and go out as much as you can during your first two years of college. the last two years will be just as fun, but you will get busy with planning for life after college and harder classes! 3. say yes to the opportunities that you are given. 4. do not plan to join 5 clubs during your first year. focus on allocating enough time to one or two clubs so that you can get the most out of it. 5. buy a planner- for hanging out with friends, upcoming tests, etc. so you do not forget about all the busy things you have going on! 6. look for opportunities outside of college- volunteer at a hospital or try getting a part time job. it will help when applying for things in the future! 7. study hard! make also make sure you have a balance between school and social life.
