    my advice is to live on campus as opposed to commuting if financially possible. it is much easier to make friends and get involved on campus. i commuted my first year and at the end of the year i hadn't really made any friends. it also makes it easier to get work done since you are not spending the time commuting. get to know your professors. office hours have been incredibly helpful in the past with clarifying concepts and explaining them in a different way to make it easier to understand. if you see them outside of class walking by say hi, there is no reason not to and it makes you more likable. go to class. it is so tempting to skip class since attendance isn't mandatory, and some professors post their notes online post lecture. but you rid yourself of the opportunity to ask questions in class or hear any announcements your professor might make regarding an exam or assignment.

    If you dorm, be prepared to be pretty lonely on the weekends. About 70% of UIC students commute. Those that dorm tend to go home on weekends often. But as long as you make a couple close friends, it really shouldn't matter too much. The quiet allows for effective studying and relaxation.

    When going to UIC, or any university for that matter, don't be afraid to ask for help. There are many resources on campus that you can use and you can always see with teachers and advisors as long as you reach out to them. In regards to living arrangements, UIC is a commuter school; if you plan on commuting, join a club to help you keep it in touch with campus life.

    Learn your way around before classes begin. The Quad is the center where all paths come together. It is surrounded by the lecture halls.
