    Don't be afraid to ask for help! College courses are difficult but it doesn't have to be such a challenge, ask for help from others in your class or professors or TA's, they are there to help you!

    It's easy to get caught up in the flow of campus life and forget why you decided to go, but you can't let that happen. Take some time before classes start and think through what you want to do with your life, and why it's important to you to go to classes and get the degree you want. It's not hard to stay on track in your classes as long as you remember why they are important to you.

    get involved! seriously. you'll hear that twenty times a day your first couple weeks, but really, get involved. it's the only way you'll really meet people as interested in a subject as you on a campus as big as boulder. also, get to know your professors. sometimes it can be intimidating, but it may save your grade!

    Apply early and apply for scholarships. These helped to bring my cost to match in-state tuition rates. C4C has lots of diverse food choices, including gluten free, and labels foods at their stations serving lots of tastes with variety. Books can be ordered early, and ordering used (early) from the bookstore helped me bring my costs down more. My used books were in almost new condition. Teachers, TA's and advisors are all super helpful when you have trouble, like losing a BuffOne card, (which gives you access to dorms, your room and food) or having questions about course work. Talk to them before you have problems so they know you when you do! When I told people I was attending this school, they warned me about the party culture. The social scene seems like any other university, because people will make their own decisions anywhere. You can find people who think like you think and make similar choices at CU. The students are diverse, care about social issues and the planet, appreciate the geography, and want to make the world a better place.
