    research this school first! I've been in Merced for 5 years now and it has grown so much since then. If you come from a big city, you may or may not like it. It's a small town, come visit the campus first before you decide. I'm from los angeles, but I loved it. I had the chance to also become a research assistant and become a published author at UC Merced. Email professors and meet with them! You have so much more opportunity here than you would at any other institution.

    My tip would be for prospective students to take advantage of all the opportunities that UC Merced has to offer. Getting help in anything is really easy to do here because people do try to put the students needs first.

    Make sure you utilize the resources they have for you here on campus. There is no reason for you to fail a class when you're surrounded by teachers, staff, and students that want nothing more for you than to succeed.

    Do not give in to procrastination. Just because you're required to attend a class doesn't mean you can blow them off to go party or hang out with friends. You're only waisting your money and time. Then, don't spend the next 4 or more years in college worrying every second of the day. Relax, calm down, and enjoy the college life. Basically, find a balance between fun and work. Only then will you feel accomplished.
