    Make sure you know what college you want to get into, it's somewhat difficult to change colleges ie: natural science and mathematics to engineering.

    Apply early, check out the school yourself, and make sure the curriculum is right for you. Also before picking classes, rate my professor, is your best friend. Although a lot of professors teach well, it helps to know which is better than the other, especially since popular professors have classes filled in fast.

    --I love that it is a big school because it is not like high school where everyone knows everyone. However, because it is a big school, you have to have some more initiative to get things done and get to know people. Otherwise, you will be invisible to your professors and other students. --Get to know your professors: Go to office hours. Talk to them before or after class. Maybe even sign up for a workshop they are teaching. Trust me, it goes a long way to get to know them. They can offer letters of recommendation or tell you about research and other enrichment opportunities. --Get involved: Join a club or do some volunteering, especially if you want to make the school seem a little smaller. Joining a club will make it easier to get to know people, and it looks good if you are planning to go beyond a bachelor's degree. --Get to know and use the resources: Because UofH is big, it has so many resources. No one knows ALL of them, but there is tutoring, workshops, career development, advising for pre-professionals, and much much more. Seek out what you need; UofH probably has it.
