    Finish your foreign language in high school. One requirement for most majors here is four semesters of a foreign language. Because there are so many other great classes to experience and foreign languages take up a lot of the semester, I recommend that students take that foreign language in high school, if possible.

    Put high school or community college behind you right away mentally. Being at a large University like Iowa is a completely different world than what you're used to. That might sound terrifying, but it's actually exhilarating. There are so many opportunities available to you that can completely change your life, but you have to be willing to step out of your comfort zone! Go Greek, join a few too many clubs, take a class you never would have taken in high school, wander around downtown. Make the most of your time on your visits and in your first few weeks; if you take chances here, they'll pay off eventually.

    Make as many new friends in the first couple weeks as you can. Go out side of your comfort zone and try something new. It's the best time in your life to go for change and do something you've never done before. Also make sure to stay on top of your studies. Don't be afraid to tell someone no. If you need to study but they want to hangout, you can always hangout tomorrow or even next week!

    Be sure to completely check in on your prospective major, what Iowa requires and wants you to fulfill, and make sure to compare it to other colleges. While Iowa is the best fit for many majors, there are some programs that other colleges have a better program for.
