    Get involved with as many different aspects of the college as possible. I know everyone says this, but getting involved early will help you find lifelong friends and find interests in things you may have never even known about before coming to school.

    Managing your time well is very important. There is no shame in going to the teacher or teachers assistant for help when you don't understand things. Becoming friends with people in your class so that you have study partners is not a bad idea either.
