    Get ready for flyers being given to you on library walk. My advice for you to do is to avoid contact and keep walking as if you have a purpose so they don't talk to you and try to give you one of their flyers. There are so many great study spaces on campus! Go exploring and find art collection pieces around campus. There are a lot of crows. Some of your lower level classes may be taught by graduate students rather than actual professors.

    Do your research! Make sure you're ready to be on your own and take care of EVERYTHING- it's easy to think your mom will do something that you should be doing.

    Be sure to compare the 6 colleges within UCSD before arranging them in preferred order in your applications! The colleges have different GE's, housing, and a sense of community on campus, so arrange in order which seems to best suit you! Visit the campus if you can, pictures cannot give you the full experience of trying to see if you can see yourself attending UCSD.
