    apply for early registration date to be applicable for the most financial scholaarships available. be involved on campus. uk and the surrounding city is incredibly bike-friendly. most activities happen didn't the evening, so beware of evening/night classes after.7pm if you can .

    Make sure you work hard! UK gives great scholarships but you need to work for them. AP classes don't hurt.

    If at all possible get a bike to get around, as generally it will cut down on time traveling and will allow you more free time. Another thing I would definitley do for your first year is to not get anymore than 14 meals a week with the meal plan. Most college students only have time to eat twice a day so more than 14 may end up as wasteful. If you do want food outside of those two meal swipes you can always use your flex dollars that come with your plan. If you plan on going home on the weekends I would reccommend the 10 meals a week plan. If you are looking to cut costs, I would recommend getting the cheapest meal plan then buying a lot of microwave dinners and ramen, provided your dorm has a kitchen area somewhere in the building and/or you have a microwave with your dorm. Take free things whenever you can, especially food. Oh and make sure you go to as man classes as you can and find a way to take notes or record the class.
