    During their first semester as a freshman student at UMD, finding a club or group of students is the best way to kick off your time there. Finding a group of people who are more experienced in academic life at UMD is essential to knowing what the next few years hold as well as creating a reliable and enjoyable support network.

    Take as many AP classes as possible before you come here. Be prepared for large lecture halls and know your learning style. Research all the resources available and have an idea of what you want to do. Its easy to get sidetracked so keep your goal in mind.

    My tip for you would be to develop good study habits and time management skills before coming to the school. There is SO much to do at UMD, so many ways to get involved with the campus and college park community, and so many interesting clubs and organizations to join, it can get a little difficult to manage everything. Don't worry if you are lacking in these skills, though! The University is equipped with a Career Center and multiple tutoring outlets if you ever need help!
