    Prospective students should expect to study diligently. Find groups that you are interested in: they will assist you socially and academically. Figure out parking on campus before classes begin! The school tickets students profusely.

    joining a club, cheering on the eagles at a sports event, and partaking in one of the almost daily events on campus are great ways to enjoy all that umw has to offer.

    When selecting your dorm, look at the building you have most of your classes in first. I got the dorm furthest away from my main class building my first year at UMW, and while you will inevitably have to walk all the way across campus, it is not something you will want to do every day. Do not feel the need to get the biggest meal plan. 75 block meal plan may seem like not very much, but the food options here are limited and you're better off saving your money when buying a meal plan and instead using it to eat off campus sometimes. There are a lot of dining options nearby, even for those without a car. The bus system can take you pretty much anywhere you need to go and is easy to use. It costs a lot to park on campus, so you may want to consider not bringing a car, at least for your first semester. The bus is free for UMW students.

    Don't be afraid to reach out to your professors! It may seem scary to talk to them sometimes, but the teachers here are really helpful. At UMW I really took control of my education, now that I was living on my own, and the supportive staff was here for me when I needed.

    If you're transferring from a community college, it's a bit of a rough transition, especially if you're a commuter, but once you get settled and get to know a few people and your professors, you're solid! I suggest getting involved as much as you can on campus. If you're an athlete, live on or near campus. Also, the night classes are a lot more mature and I find it more rewarding because the professors treat you like adults and your peers actually show interest in their studies, because most of them are non-traditional students.
