    Be ready to study and quite a lot; don't get scared to ask for help you will need it. The first year is where you will make the closest friends, go do stuff that you have't done.

    Be ready to feel intimidated by the students--there are many very smart people. Go to office hours and ask questions. Also, be ready to work hard, very hard, more than in high school...

    Have fun! But be ready to work hard. I would suggest not being in groups and clubs at first to get good study skills implemented and just feel everything out. Once you're comfortable, feel free to join as much as you can handle!

    Keep in mind of the diverse students you will meet: basically, keep an open mind. Many students come from different backgrounds and may have different views on things, yet you should never be intimated to have your voice heard. There are thousands of organizations and programs that help students in financial hardship, first generation status, and students of minority background. The campus may consist of a large majority of whites and Asians, but there are many students who also come from different ethnic backgrounds that come together in many organizations for Latinos, Pacific Islanders, African Americans, and more.
